    Hah! Anyone who gripes are welcome to spend a day working with me in sub zero temps.

    I've done it in the past. You just wrap up warm and keep moving 

    Although some of the charts showing up would be a bit too cold for being outside to be fair.

    Won't fall out with that at all.  I worked through the winters of 78 , 81/2 87 and 91. Although I like a bit of cold and snow  for a while it,s  one thing having a bit of fun for an hour or two, but quite another having to stand out in it for 8 hours a day  Monday to Friday. Like yourself I shall probably take a few days off if it gets really cold  at 58 I'e done my bit.:D

    You'd think that at least one weather app would actually have a snow symbol or some actual cold showing on them for this time next week (for the south) and into next but nada, bit fat zero, zilch on any of them and with daytime temps around 5-7c.

    I didn't like the look of the wind direction arrows on this mornings BBC Weather.

    By Friday it appeared to show SE direction and the deep blues were changing back to greens.

    Also the summary included mainly dry week and there was no mention of snow!

    Pretty good summary from the beeb when looking at the ens very little precipitation next week

    Was just about to tell the family about possible cold and snow but thought better of it.  Don't want to jinx this one ?

    yes, it's 6.7'c here today already, you'd think with them saying a cold spell is coming, that there'd have to be colder temperatures?

    just said to the wife ' think we are going to need a bigger boiler'

    mixed emotions for me though, love the cold but the daughter starts a job Monday next which she will have to drive a round trip of 100 miles a day down country roads, she has never realy driven in proper snow (if it comes), lots of dad worry coming up maybe.

    You won't be the only one, with parent worries.

    most of the young and youngish drivers, have never experienced it. 

    Best advice, if she has to drive, is take a warm coat, hat gloves etc  and warm socks ,sweeties and a drink with her, a phone charger and keep a full tank so if she's stuck in traffic she can keep engine running for warmth.

    oh and a shovel, but you've probably told her that.

    in fact even us oldies need reminding of those sensible precautions.

    it doesn't take a prang to leave you stranded, wasn't it lorrys a few years back that crippled a M road , cos they couldn't climb from a standing start ?

     

    wish her luck x

    If it anything like what's predicted her workplace will probably shut.

    Ever read a MetO text forecast of "snow for many"? - you have now. And an extended that puts any milder shift back to mid March.

    And on the model front... I rather like this one

    Not sure the south of England would be able to operate at all under that.

    I’m seriously willing to test that theory!! :drunk:

    can you imagine what the daily express headlines are going to be?

    Yes

    "Britain's pensioners freeze to death as worst winter in hundreds of years"

     

    In all seriousness I hope the government and councils are preparing contingencies for the worst affected areas of the country. This kind of weather is beautiful for those of us not in a vulnerable position, but if it persists in this currently shown manner it could cause serious issues.

    Must be one if the few people getting panicked by the amounts of snow currently being suggested on the MOD thread - with elderly relatives who would be housebound and a very premature baby in the family who is a 30 mile round trip in hospital away from home this this snowmagedon would be a total nightmare.

    and quite right too..........BBC Snowwatch euphoria rules in the MOD thread  ( Snowmageddon, etc etc ) .....however look on GFS 12z OP and you see a 4-5 day Cold spell with snow showers mostly in the East followed by gradual thaw as Snow-Rain as LP with associated warm core arrives from SE.  

    Remember 3 days ago we had snow flurries arriving in SE this Tuesday....this has now moved back to Friday/Saturday.

    Spare a thought for the thousands of Brits on the streets who have no home to go to

    We could build them igloos.
