    17 minutes ago, Deep Snow please said:

     

    It's the weather reporters version 2+2=5

     

    Some SSW's have resulted in cold spells in the past, some have not, there's a chance that SSW could pass us a Greenland high or a straight Northerly/Easterly bringing in cold air. Basically there is a slightly increased likelihood of snow, and Netweather have ran with it for an express/TWO style article with a bit more scientific jargon thrown in.

    Bit unfair if you look at the science and details and past events. You vastly underestimate the power of a SSW it may not bring us deep cold but 60% do and this is quite an extreme one fascinating science and certainly no Express style headline.

    I don't think it was at all unfair. Whilst it has brought us deep cold on some occasions it simply has not happened enough to conclusively prove that the SSW's are statistically significant with regards to bringing cold air over the UK outright. No doubt there is a chance it could turn us into Siberia for a few weeks. If I tried hard enough I could probably match certain teams losing a game of football they were expected to win or blue pigs flying past Harrod's shop window to deep cold in the UK at a rate of 40-60%, it doesn't mean the causation is actually there, or that the fact this is an extreme one means it will bring deeper colder. I hope it does like most people on here but think it's a bit irresponsible to run that article in such a fashion, however much pseudoscience is in it.

    Hope it gets here in 1 piece.

    Headed straight to our general area isn't it! Seems to be intensify as well, some purple on it.

    The heavy stuff has been hitting here since 3ish, shows how localised it is.

    Too much of a gap between showers though.

    Big gap on the radar now apart from that one big blob which looks to be heading further north of us

    Spoke too soon, came down really heavy again, added more to the dusting on everything except pavements.

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
