Show me a chart as of the latest 12z run that indicates widespread significant snow for all in Southern and Eastern areas? Copy and paste it in your reply and show us all. 

The Met will not change there forecast because of one-run because they are more experienced than that :80:

Are you on the wind up ? Plz don’t spoil our fun 

Not at all I'm just writing what I have seen as of the latest chart trend for precipitation next week. As you all seem obsessed with the meto saying 'significant snow next week' I'm just wondering if any of you can show us all a precipitation chart trend that indicates a major snow event for us? The answer is there isn't one at this stage. I'm not saying there won't be one - the possibility is there, but we need to exercise caution. There's as much chance for us getting a mostly dry, sunny, cold icy week next week (with the odd sprinkling) as there is a significant snow event.

Think you have made your point - Matty88 vs UK Met Office
Only time will tell who has the better insight.

You will know as well as I do that the meto has made some epic c*** up's over years gone by, please do not religiously believe everything they say. The cold spell starts Sunday/Monday - lets get excited nearer the time should a widespread snow event become imminent... which as of today's indications it isn't.

Evening good peeps ?

Hope everyone is ok and well just seen the last few posts and there seems to be some kind of seriousness in the posts. I thought we all in here were gentle kind souls. 

Look the current situation stands like this cold is coming yes we know that but nothing is nailed in terms of snow just yet. We have still got 3 days to get through before we reach Sunday and things could change for the better or worse none of us know that. 

One thing is for sure though is that we are all on this journey together and we all want our final destination. Bothering others or saying bad things is not going to make this train go faster. Let's all relax and keep our fingers crossed I am sure there is someone listening to what our hearts are crying out for  we will get there but patience. We are all in this together lets make the journey fun for all. 

Wishing you all a great evening

regards ????

I think things are about to get fun.

A couple of weeks back we had a lot of happy members waking up to snow on what was at best a marginal event, now we have something much more exciting to look forward too!

I have no recollection of the frequently cold and snow of March 2013 ... I have no recollection!  Did we get any snow in Essex?  I remember Dec 2010 and no particularly cold, snowy period since! :nonono:

It was cold, yes, but not much snow here. 5cms on grass and cars on the 23rd I think, but never settled on pavement or roads and melted as soon as it stopped snowing.

Can we keep it friendly please. Fwiw, I think both sets of views are right here. There is no guarantee of snow in a particular location, so anyone thinking there's a 100% chance of getting a dumping has a reasonable chance of being disappointed. There is, however a risk of some decent snow amounts in places - eg most likely through showers (so by their nature will hit somewhere and miss somewhere else). Anyone wanting a chart to 'prove' it will struggle, since you're going to need to wait for the mesoscale hires models to come in to play at around 48 or so hours out for that sort of thing to be resolved. 

For those wanting the meto's word for it, this is from their latest press release:

https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/news/releases/2018/cold-conditions-end-of-february

And for charts, the ensembles give a broad brush kinda guide, in terms of whether there's a chance of precip or not - and as you can see, plenty think there is, but again - detail and specifics are impossible at this point - all they suggest is that the ingredients are more likely than not to be in place for showers:

It is friendly paul we promise  ...most  just having a joke about, keeps everyone on a high even if we hit a low point in the charts :) and kicked moki out for trespassing lol

Jesus H the MAD thread is the worst I have seen it for ages. So many triggered members. Avoid ?

That's the trouble with having so many epic charts over the last few days, but they have been too far away so more chance of them changing. As soon as someone seems something that means it's not so good for them they trash the whole cold spell for everyone and then more people join in and it just mushrooms out of control. Very frustrating and you can't follow what's going on.

There are quite a few members on my ignore list but at the moment I can't add people quick enough!

TBH I've not long come back indoors from watering my sheep and filling all the water troughs.   The temperature has really really dropped.  It is extremely cold already and at this rate I'll be wearing the Ram like a scarf round my neck next week.  Trouble is he weighs an absolute minimum of sixteen stone ??

I’m saying it’s again the second SSW is causing the upset… I hope

Intense SSW is in action & the models have picked this up, hence today's fluctuations. No need to be concerned as the current Beast From The East is still on course.

The SSW graph had to be extended to new parameters to accommodate the intensification of SSW. This intensification is the result of the energy from the recent CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) from the sun.

Your right I agree it is much colder today, well it certainly feels like it. I was working in Milton Keynes and when I finished work I certainly felt the chill. On my commute back home now to Euston then Walthamstow

Ha, sadly I went there before here. Schoolboy error. I've learned more regarding the models in 3-4 posts on this thread than I did wading through the battle over there. Jesus H indeed.
