    You guys would have loved 1985. 2 weeks of near ice days, bitter easterly wind and with not a cloud in the sky.

    Of course every year is unique.

    I don't like SSW's at this time of year. Winter is coming to a close, the days are longer, the sun gets warmer by the day. I know we can still get a severe cold blast as late as March but it's never quite the same, the snow melts far more than it would have done a couple of weeks ago.

    The SSW doesn't happen for 10 days or so, that puts us around the 15th, then even with a quick trop response you're looking at around the 20th at the earliest for something interesting, could be the end of February/beginning of March and then we just have a cold, miserable start to spring.

    I’m grabbing at it with both hands it’s the best chance of a proper cold & snow with real wintriness in years and that is no exaggeration.

    Even before SSW may make itself apparent on the troposphere. I have noticed GFS in FI has been quite something lately. MJO lag effect..... IMO

    what with the split there will be very cold arctic air which surges south to mid latitudes while we approach spring ironically the coldest air of the winter may be present. Don’t dwell on it.

    God help us if this is the 'coldest week of the winter' as expressed by the media...4.7max today and snow deep enough to freeze an ant (before it melted 30 minutes later) - 37 days without an air frost here (that says it all about this winter).

    Ha ha! This post has really tickled me!  I think you have summed up this Winter so far in the SE quite nicely there!  :laugh:

    If it does turn out that way, I'll be over the moon. I want nothing more than a decent cold spell with some decent snow chances, but given the past 4/5 years of, well, basically cold spells resulting in something like last night, it's really difficult to remain optimistic the further into winter we go

    just rain according to the current observations on the meto website. 5c and peeing down. Same in Guernsey. Sounds hideous.

    I'm quite a way North East of you near Colchester and I'm just in the warning zone for 1 to 4 cms. I'm not overly hopeful but you never know and it wouldn't take too much of an upgrade to get more of our region in the firing line. Here's hoping.:cold:

    From sky news site

    Met Office spokesman Martin Bowles said: "Tonight is going to be very cold, there is a front coming into the North West and because we have got lots of cold air there is going to be lots of snow on it.

    "It is reaching north-west Scotland and Northern Ireland this evening and then it will gradually work its way into north Wales and north-west England overnight, including a good chance of some fairly substantial settling of snow in those areas.

    During tomorrow, it will continue to work its way into the South East, but as it does so it will become a much weaker affair so actually pretty much the whole country can expect to get some snow between six o'clock this evening and six o'clock tomorrow.

    Looking into that front decaying-and its geographical landing is going to change on both options.

    Its going to need tracking through tomorrow....could easily become more wider-spread and pep notable.

    Edit;..using the sat images will help.

    As the front makes inroads....

    What on earth was Carol Kirkwood on earlier this morning when she said a chance of snow and lightning on Tuesday night in East Anglia?

    She was talking about heavy showers that could follow the front into the NW. She didn't mention EA and the SE (at least on the forecast I saw). The reference to thundersnow was def for NW areas.
