    The surreal thing about these charts is that they are literally knocking on our door. Many many a year these have appeared at 342hr and deep down we had the knowing they probably wouldn't materialise...and sure enough they didn't.  We are now at a point where our Nirvanas might just be here and it really is surreal to see this unfold...could it really happen?

    I'm rubbish at reading these mate. Does this show the front that moves North East to South West Tuesday?

    I’ve just made this point on TWO. Yes I count 4 of the GEFS which show high pressure for much of Northern Britain midday Tuesday with relatively disappointing cold air advection away from the far south east. P17 is the worst. 

    In my view if there is a sudden last minute backtrack then it will be something akin to this scenario, but low risk in my view, given all the other output and the vast majority of the GEFS. 

    Yeah, as Oasis mentioned it's to do with that little Atlantic low moving to Greenland, I don't think it should be a problem as its just a few runs aggressively developing the low at T72. These rogue ensemble members let the little low cut through the Scandi block like butter and let it pass down to our east. I don't think that is realistic and the vast majority of runs do not develop it or just let it go off into the arctic.

    By tomorrow that will be cleared up but I don't expect it to get in the way of things given a clean hit has been such a strong signal over the last 6 runs or so.

    The "south" event also seems to hit large parts of the north. Not sure why, for example, the 18z was posted as showing heavy snow in the south when it's all of England and Wales before moving up into S Scotland.

    These are England-wide events (maybe Scotland too), GFS, UKMO and ECM as well. The Louise Lear week ahead charts for example shows the low going right up through England.

    Understandable that people look for their own area but making it so IMBY is missing the totality of such an exciting and widespread setup.

    So, on that note.

    These are England wide events? Sorry if I’ve misunderstood but doesn’t that chart show the low progressing straight through the heart of Wales also?

    Right if the GFS comes into fruition I probably won't be able to visit here for a long while.

    GFSOPEU18_216_2.png

    I'll be back when the power is restored and the snow has finally melted in April :rofl:

    In all seriousness though, there would be crazy amounts of snow as that low meanders in the cold air for at least 48 hours!

    I would like to think so lol.  However the Gfs are showing  around only 4 inches or so for most of the country apart from the north east where it shows a lot more.  Now 4 inches is not to be sniffed at, but talk of being buried ect, is a bit optimistic

    Not optimistic at all. Not enough emphasise IMO went on snow showers and the potential for them to cause significant disruption across southern and eastern areas. As IF testifies. Snow showers alone could ‘bury’ some areas, 4” each day over a span of a few days it’s going to add these areas likely few than many. Furthermore charts for Wednesday in particular well looking at ECM - I think they’ll be longer spells of snow too coming in from east. What comes after on top then there may be some really significant depths. Also the models you could say have trended less cleanly with bumps in the isobars, suggestive of organised snowfall possible anywhere. A very wintry week ahead I’d say.

    Surprise snowfalls will happen next week I have little doubt.

    Big danger signs on the ICON 00z

    Yes, it picks up on that shortwave that GFS spotted yesterday, but instead of sending it due N and absorbing it into Greenland, it recurves around the Scandi HP and allows a trough to drop down from the N before the unstable E'ly flow has a chance to get going.

    Worrying...I really hope we're not about to repeat history here. It would be so cruel.

    We survive on the UKMO and GFS, just about.

     

    Serious warning for anyone who thinks anything is nailed. :/

    I've always said that E'lys are never ever nailed until within 72 hrs

    Saying that, looking at it again, the ICON run looks relatively implausible given the retrograde pattern and forcing from the HP...but you never know.

    I wake up, jump straight online & the first model I view is the UKMO 0z run of course.  Arrival commences at T96;

    Oh no. The useless ICON goes wrong.

    Seriously. It's fine. The actual decent models look great once again.

    UKMO/GEM/GFS are excellent,  Arpege not quite as good but much better than it's 12z,  ICON is not good.

    I do as well. UKMO and GFS may show great charts but personally I am very unhappy with that ICON output. A real spanner in the works. More like Arpege too.

     

    Hopefully it will ground others because this is not nailed.
