    Yes, what a great forecaster he was/is.. I always watched his forecasts because he provided analysis in layman's terms - made it really interesting and was a catalyst for my interest in meteorology

    I think we always watched him in my house because my mum fancied him! 
    I do also miss his forecasts, memories watching him before heading off to school

    I think I will be quite disappointed if we don’t get at least a decent dusting of snow on the West Sussex coast.

    but it looks like any snow will be in east of East Sussex, standard!

    Hi all - followed ppls thoughts here esp words about disruption. I live in Lancashire but also work in Hammersmith on Mondays and Tuesdays, travelling down on train on Sunday eve , back Tues eve. Serious question - is there a chance of being stuck in London? Thinking of taking a couple of days extra essentials! Looks like there are very real chances of heavy London snow to heavy NW snow later in the week! 

    Yes I would stick to the motto "Be prepared", you know what the SE gets like with an inch of snow, well by Tues there could be a few inches of snow about so transport could get quite bad very quickly.

    And this one from the late great Ian McKaskill

     

    This really could be epic next week.

    BBC news weather mid afternoon today reporting how it got to 26c in New York today.

    Weirdly the same as the 1991 event when we saw massive snow here...

    Are we on the verge of a repeat performance?

    I have a feeling we will see at least 1 Red warning next week. My guess would be Tuesday or Wednesday for SE Parts and Friday or Saturday for something coming up from the South West

    Good afternoon SE snow hunters! My company pay for access to Met Office data (stocks and shares and all that jazz). We have all been placed on RED disaster recovery status alert, avoiding all none essential travel. The Beast is coming...

    I've got a feeling that may well happen, as I've said before even the likes of GFS/ECM are showing a thames streamer reflection and they haven't got the resolution to really pick up the true strength of the flow. Given the flow doesn't really move too far away from ENE/E over at least a 3 day period (other than maybe briefly if a shortwave forms further north) I'm thinking the sweet spots are going to be getting at least what they got in 09, and probably a fair shot at matching Feb 91.

    The wind direction definitely makes a big difference in streamers and accumulations. I remember a while back getting 5 cm in Ashford but driving up the M20 to Maidstone and seeing three times this amount. 

     

    If we don't get embedded troughs there could be large accumulation differences. Nothing worse than seeing a  train of Cumulonimbus in the near distance dumping copious amounts of snow up the road.

    Will be snow chaos in London if the ECM comes off! All models showing some significant snowfall for most of our region. Hard to contain excitement..

    I'm so excited about this cold spell i bought a weather station and linked it to the Met Office WOW site!!!!

    Dew point already dropped to -2.9... guessing it will be spending a lot of time in negative figures over the next couple of weeks!

    http://wow.metoffice.gov.uk/observations/details?site_id=ef30a420-c514-e811-90ce-0003ff59a722

    :cold::yahoo:

    I am new to the forum, long time lurker though! Wondered what weather station you’d bought?  I’ve been looking for a while.

    As with many of us, very excited! Been seeing this come to fruition on the runs for nearly a week now, and cannot believe there’s been no downgrade.   Had to pinch myself with the latest MetO video. Bring it on! ❄️?⛄️

    Louise Lear forecast on London regional weather was extremely underwhelming. Dry, but we "may, just may, see some snow Tues night into Wed. One to keep an eye on". Strange?

    If ECM lands widespread >30cm in the SE - lots of +50s & some 100s over the hills - infact the SE would look like one big ski resort -

    Dont worry about the media forecasts - they are pony.

    BBC Weather is pants at the moment. She must be reading a script and not allowed to tell viewers the Snow word :nonono:
