SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 11/02/2018 onwards


Recommended Posts

Just checking in to see if we are getting closer - Stats below make grim reading

Feb 4th the arrival of the snow was touted on here by Jaffacake to be around the 15th Feb so at Days 10-12

Feb 9th the arrival was pushed forward a bit to Days 7-9

Feb 12th the arrival was pushed back to days 9-11

Feb 14th we are now looking at days 12-14 again

Lets face it - It is not going to happen 

Hoping we get some dry weather with High Pressure to dry things out and then warm up a bit as we get into the 2nd week of March.

The drive from here in Hastings/St Leonards-on-Sea to my hospital appointment in Sidcup late this morning wasn't too bad apart from annoying road work hold-ups, but the drive back home this evening was pretty grim.

Thankfully temperatures held up enough to ensure it was just rain but there was plenty of that and visibility was poor at times due to spray, made worse by poor road surfaces causing unexpected areas of minor flooding.

The state of some of our so called 'major roads' is a bloody disgrace, a real bug bear of mine.

i know quite a few roads in Hastings that are terrible for large potholes, yet no one does anything abut them.

Yes, it's over isn't it:angry::cray:Thankfully i didn't follow the whole sorry saga of model watching, seems all a big waste of people's time if they were after snow.

Like the fact you reminded us of the predictions made, always enjoy that in the forum :gathering:

I reckon a dry and cold spell is on the way... but after 4-5 days is anyone's guess.

Just from a casual observers point of view it seems this Strat Warming thing is a tad confusing for the models let alone those in the moody thread. The computer models are statistically geared up for an West to East / Atlantic driven algorithm for our shores and now along comes a spanner in the form of a SSW event to change the norm. Usual synopsis does not to apply and it's all up for grabs with what may or not happen. If the SSW affects our itsy island or near continent it depends on so many variables. But whatever happens it's not going to be very predictable if everything's coming our way from the east.  Could be just cold and dry or we could end up in the middle of the weather's struggle to regain that warmth from the atlantic against the cold from the east..... always fun.. will it wont it - INBY

I like surprises this time of year and always interesting experience winter holding out as the sun warms our northern hem but i feel this time it's a little more intriguing as the computer models try to deal with unusual data :crazy:  

so after last weeks fun cooking pizza outside in the rain at a party i could be doing the same in snow in March !  Hope so.

Paul S 

i don’t quite agree with you GEM / JMA / NAVGEM all have a quick easterly solution at day 6 and UKMO gets there at day 7 the day 9/10 mean from ECM has an easterly flow we’re not talking far off here. As has GEFS mean consecutively within T+240 not checked latest. I think we’ll get our easterly it’s whether we get it earlier or later..

How poetic - is it bad I started laughing? :p 

im sure winter is not done with us a delayed spring looks probable, we saw the most wintriest update from Met Office in years, if you’re not encouraged by that then well there’s not much else that can.

models are struggling a lot clearly but I know what I’m siding with and it’s not just because of a preference!

Should shut the model thread for five days so people can do something more constructive with their time, rather than one minute be thinking woohoo and then the next, doh! if things are still up in the air by then, then we can safely say nowt of any interest will be happening this month, as the easterly will probably turn up in April.

Stunning start to the day with 9c on my drive into work - with some sun I reckon we could get 11-12c today

8.7C currently for winter so far that’s very mild nice day expected with a high of 11C forecast here cold night though.

I had a few days away from watching the models and this forum, as this winter has started to do my head in lol.

What have I missed? is the cold and snow from the East still 10 days away like it has been most of winter?

joy.

The Latest UKMO output ties in nicely with the MetO's written forecast version. It will be interesting if ECM & GFS falls into place with UKMO in the coming days :D

Me: 'hey ho, spring coat, day off, off to Tesco  I walk in the sunshine"

5 minutes later: 'ahhhhh' (runs in doors after being ambushed by 10 minutes of freezing hail)

Typical.  Hair is now a wet and fizzy mess again.

All hands on deck at the allotment tomorrow. Not knowing how the SSW/possible easterly will pan out makes everything a bit uncertain, not really sure what to do, bah. I've covered my onions just in  case!

To quote from the Mock Turtles song, think these words are apt with regards the weather!

 

Will you come and join the dance?
Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you,
will you join the dance?
Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you,
won’t you join the dance?

At least we can take heart that the sun is shining, so silver lining. :D

Very spring-like shower here in Acton a few minutes ago, suddenly dark, then gusty with heavy rain/hail - and now beautiful clear skies coming in again.

I really really want these cold conditions to verify, but if not, I could deal with this kind of spring weather ?

Bugger, mum asked for the forecast for today to stick a whole load of washing out, checked the radar and it looked clearish, forecast showed zero chance of rain all day on nw, went to check the radar again and that hail band looks to have intensified and will clip me here but only just! Sods law better get the stuff back in in a mo, now that she's at work
