-^^ @Paul Sherman did a good thread 

Basically thames streamer 70 - 95 degrees East ( most widespread into shires )

Mid kent & suffolk clipper 45-70 degrees - ideal for places like ashford- etc

East Kent / Norfolk streamer 15-45 degrees ( ie slightly North east to NE )

Current output angle on UKMO is starting 90 degrees backing 75 degrees - optimal flow across the SE

I vaguely remember we had a really good spell of Snow in West London back in 2003 (I think) I remember walking home in it and if I remember correctly it was blizzard like conditions - does anyone know/remember how that came about? Similar to this set up or was it more N/NE? 

Cheers

Liam Dutton said temps up to 3c above freezing as maxes next week so I sent him this?

Perhaps right in the centre of London in amongst the tall buildings, next to a heating column. Everywhere else, pretty much 0-1c or below as a max, especially the middle/late next week.

I go to the Canaries on Monday and return the following Monday. Am I likely to catch any of this? Or have I done something to upset Mother Nature?

I recycle, damn it. I don’t deserve this. :sorry:

outrageous indeed lol-

Obviously incase I hadnt posted specifically enough in our thread- that snow total has been taken out of context being the top amount will be for the tops of the downs - Not a widespread amount...

Annoying really....

You should make a Twitter account and correct it, I reckon...

It was - I'd just returned home from Manchester on the train and it began snowing hard as I arrived in Orpington on the Sunday evening - it settled very quickly and snowed pretty much all night and the following morning, for sure. That was probably the thickest snow I've seen in the 15 years I've lived here.

Are areas in the west of East Anglia, such as Cambridge, likely to be dry in this setup? Certainly, looks that way from the models; we get the least snow in the whole country! Does anybody remember what is was like in Cambridge in past easterly spells like Feb 91?

Its true the Cambridge area isn't ideal in these set up's - we tend to do best with a NE'ly. The current wind direction forecast is more Easterly/SE'ly, 

If it's just showers we are talking about next week then it'll be very hit and miss - our best hopes are with something more organised to get it's act together. Charts should show something better come Monday (hopefully). You can't rule out it being mostly dry next week though... but you can't rule out a really good dump either !

I remember it - there was thundersnow and I was driving home with my 4 month old baby! Almost had to abandon the car on one of the Wycombe hills and struggle home with her in the pushchair - very scary... I don't remember the set up though, sorry!
