Looking good to me for the overall theme! details have slight differences! 

If things were to go the way of the Pear now, it would be some turnaround! Would go down in Netweather folk-law history no doubt! Let’s not even consider that. :nonono:

We can only see to mon/tues with any decent confidence. The really interesting stuff seems to begin Tuesday so I would hang on another 24 hours yet before that statement is valid

Fair comment, but we can't get to Tuesday onward fun without +72 Verifying. It's the surge of cold from the East that arrives on Sunday that will allow for any approaching fronts from the Atlantic to fall as widespread snow, not just back edge or front edge snow? Speculation of course at this juncture, they might not even make it across a large swathe of the UK.

My point is just Agreement to +72, it's fundamental to the cold spell! And that looks to be agreed.. 12z will aid confidence hopefully.

If Icon is right at 144 this could be a long cold spell (It is Icon). Now I am just saying this, but Icon is showing how 1987 started

IKON 144 continues the push from the east again...

The ICON shows pretty much something I had thought about today (As well as many others I see), after we see the Atlantic front on Tuesday stall with the trough sinking and cutting off. Would we see another attempt from the Azores high to push into Scandinavia to try and advect some bitterly cold air our way. Whilst this weekend into the start of next week looks cold, it isn't going to be a beast, but a second bit to positon a more robust high to our north east could unleash the beast conisdering the models are predicting 850s to get close to -20C over Scnadinavia next week. That is some serious cold.

Using this mornings ECM as an example for the depth of cold to our north east.

If we can tap this cleanly then this could turn from a good cold spell to a classic. The ICON gets pretty close, lets see if the GFS/UKMO and later ECM could devlelop this.

The last time I checked the BBC website, Monday's max and min were +6 and 0C respectively...Ergo, there must still be some inter-model uncertainty - Sunday's GFS12Z::cc_confused:

Check the 120 hour chart steve and its a massivw improvement on yesterdays 12z for same time!!more amplified near greenland and trough disrupting across the uk instead of bulldozing its way eastwards!!

Gfs  really now starting to show the strength of the cold to the east.   Snow band on Tuesday really struggling to move across the country

My question here is: how far east will the snowfall get before it peters out?

Yes it seems like the uncertainty continues on the models because here in southwest Wales its still showing 8C & 4C for Monday

Wow UKMO 120 has -11c in the SE but -14c just over the channel-

Both GFS & UKMO swinging to the Easterly reload like the IKON

Indeed! Bit messy though isn't it Steve? Not exactly a sharp flow so we'd be hoping for troughs/Atlantic disruption rather than shower activity?

GFS 12z it's much better over scandi with the heights. Lack of wind over the UK aswell so could be real cold if it's clear skies at night
