No, they don't - but comments on a model thread do reflect what the models are showing (rampers excepted because they see what they want to see). 

Ok Cheese, calm down.

Looks like the 'told you so's' are waking up :nea:. What happened to the good old days, when people came on here to discuss the weather and not each other?!

There a bit earlier we've seen models flip far closer to events and we don't need them to flip just lean over a bit. Still a serious event for much of the country,

This cold spell will probably end up over Northern Africa tbh.

To be fair, it still looks very good indeed tonight.

There is (regardless of what some say in this thread) a cold/very cold spell on the way. How cold/snowy is still to be seen. But coming into this thread, there seems to be loads of members preying for it to fail so they can play their 'told you so' bit. And then they have the audacity to complain about the members in the MOD thread when they themselves contribute f all to the site!

Preying?

no one wants it to be cold more than I do, but people shout you down as soon as you try to talk about being cautious...

Yep, they play the odds every time cold is forecast and say it'll fail. Not a particularly insightful or clever prediction when the UK is involved, they moan about ramping snow and cold then indulge in their own ramping against it, and contribute nothing except trying to sow misery. Weird, why would you do that?

No, no. Being cautious is fine. There is a line between being cautious and winding people up though (you're not crossing it btw).

In my opinion, if I wanted to be cautious, I wouldn't visit this site, I would just visit the BBC/Met Office site. I want ramping and excitement. I want members digging out the coldest and snowiest perturbations. If you don't want to be dissapointed, get your weather news from the pro's!

It's ok, in a week's time you'll have forgotten this 'cold spell' (because it won't have happened!).

Surely what is important is who is correct?

Mind you, even the Met are 'ramping now!' And they're the best there is IMO.

I'm staying cautious. Bitter experience has taught us what happens when small, seemingly inocuous changes for the worse creep in. "It's only 1 run, it's only the GFS, we still have the UKMO on side, it can all change tomorrow.........D'oh!"

Sure, correctness through reasoned forecasting, not through stopped clock being right twice a day repetition.
