Sorry I don't buy it. When I view charts like we've seen tonight when the temperature is just above the threshold for snow, I expect an inch of rain, not an inch equivalent of snow.

Which charts are those then with temps just above snow threshold etc where we could expect rain

ECM ensemble mean at T168.  This channel or Northern France feature seems likely, it's more a question of the track, fascinating model watching!

And T240 mean looks interesting with the cold still firmly in place:

No its not, I've changed it to cms not inches onthe settings. So it IS 5-7cms in the south and 10-15cms in the SW. Nothing to sneeze at still but its not quite the snow disaster some thought.

 

Bite your hand off for a guaranteed 5cms of West Sussex snow if offered now.

I don't know if perhaps this kind of micro-analysis of the snow potential needs moving into the dedicated cold spell thread ... but just thought I'd post the latest ARGEPE snow chart as to me it seems a reasonable idea of what to expect on the ground by Wednesday morning:

arpegeuk-45-114-0.png?23-17

Seems very plausible, I think depths will be deeper but those areas do seem the most likely places. Shower bands will track from NE to SW across the country, some will strike gold and others will be left dry but really cold. I reckon a few unexpected troughs will form at short notice and bury some places that are expecting little.

 

if I was a betting man I'd say a band through the Thames running SW over the South Downs and exiting between Portsmouth and Southampton ?❄️

I just mean when a low pressure just sits in the English Channel for 48 hours bringing up a southerly, I'd normally expect ridiculous amounts of rain on the south coast, even flooding amounts - whether the temperature is 3C or 30C! Better leave it there though, I see we've got a bit derailed by snow volumes tonight on here and I'm partly to blame...

Longer term - D8 onwards - one can see the complete mess the UK is in. No coherent direction at all. I imagine if it is very cold at D8, that cold may just sit and sit over the UK for quite a while, especially if there's snow cover (oh no I said it again!)

I get you now but some of the new members on here must wonder whats going on when people are saying inches of snow to come and you say inch of rain

Snow volumes are a valid discussion as its part of what is being modelled , I'm with you that sort of LP would deliver  a foot of snow IMBY at least

Blizzards and heavy snow from UKMO extended North Midlands south possibly the hot spots

Not a million miles away from the GFS

Still T168 is a mile away in this situation. I wouldn't be entirely sure on the direction of this at T24!!

Looks like UKMO as man with beard says takes more of the GFS approach (surely GFS can't be the leader in this)?, personally would like to see it flatter than that and a hundred or so miles further south to keep the cold locked in...but maybe that's more of me talking about my location.

what an ECM run!....Stunning is an overused word at times, but not this time.....T168 is snowmageddon............I just looked into the future and took this photo of my back garden this time next friday

If you follow back SW into the Atlantic there are 2 more potential LP 'runners' lining up.....interesting times indeed.

Tight - could you explain your fist line please? The rest I can just about figure out. Thanks! Bought my 6 and 2 year olds their first ? today. Sure hope I haven’t jinxed anything!

Gfs- 4/ 24 hr..circular suites..ooz /6z/12z/18z.

The 18z is looked upon as a mish-mash of the medium sets..ie- ooz /12z..

However 18z is ref'ed as pub run..due to its bipolar dynamics!

This time in standing its on a level pegging; and being big brother again'st it bully-sister suites.

Ita a mixed-and usualy miss dynamical evolution of middle ground...then plot lost!!!..

But i'd advise due to time lapse/and situ atm...the 18z is actually laughably the form run.

And its evo's are likely more in%age..verifying.....

and after its nxt run..i'll elaborate further...for my points in note!

Have to say your avatar is very appropriate at this moment in time, as we could be heading straight into a Perfect 'winter' Storm! :cold::friends:

The GEFS / EPS are not suggesting this and a minute adjustment at this range can make a huge difference 'on the ground' for our tiny island! :)

Yes the beast is coming, however the models are not really in the reliable yet to resemble something that may actually verify as regards snow and where it may fall yet. They are trying not to panic people I guess.

IMHO this is no ordinary situation developing and they have access to better models than we do in here. I expected the warnings to start this evening :)

John, BB6263 posted the coldest 850 temps charts for pretty much all the major cold spells including that one since the 19th century - I think it's on P104 of this thread.  I found it interesting that if Thursday, which is 1 March!, verifies as some of the models, you have to go back to January 1987 to find colder air reaching the UK.

thanks for that Mike I will take a look
