The models are all over the shop with this low approaching from the south - the GFS has a stronger low than on its 6z run whereas the UKMO shifts the low south when compared to it's 12z run yesterday. We could play "pin the tail on Bertha" again, but I fear emotions would be too high in the winter! Imagine handing out the prize to the person who predicted the low would be over Scotland on Friday!

Great looking ukmo this evening. Certainly looks to my untrained eye that it’s prolonging the cold. :cold:

Steve what are your thoughts on any milder air being suppressed by surface cold where there is lying snow. Is this something that the models factor in ?

Actually a worse run for the south. A brief spell of very heavy snowfall, possible blizzard conditions before warming up and turning back to rain.

Steve, please explain why there would be no rain anywhere. Genuine question.

Looks like starting as snow everywhere then turning to snow for the majority with freezing rain in the far south.

Now this would be interesting

The low stalls and simply crawls along the English channel, with cold air still in place further  north there could be a lot of snow for the Midlands and southern Engalnd in particular, the north remains very cold and showery.

MOGREPS mate. The next low filled behind and keeps us in Easterlies hence the text updates

Interesting to see GFS and UKMO having the low drift westwards, that keeps lower uppers over more of England and buries Ireland! With GFS starting that from a more northerly position and the UKMO further south it doesn’t appear to give a particularly different outcome. Because of the way the system interacts with or disengages from the jet?

The UKMO at T144 shows exactly how I'd like Friday's low to play it, with trough disruption causing it to stall in the channel. Some huge snow amounts from that, being picky though maybe uppers could be a degree or two lower down here. We are in continental air still though the uppers at T120 creep above freezing, threat of freezing rain for us there... before turning back to snow :D

Even with barely negative uppers?

For the last time....you can get snowfall without -10 uppers! They can be around zero with the right setup - such as what we have.

Summer sun posting ukmo t168 will be worth a view. Hoping to see the back end of the low on the far right and basically out of view

Well if the models this evening play out anyway like they suggest southern Ireland will have to completely shut down for 2/3 days.

Jokes aside this could become very serious with even front line hospitals out of action

12Z cranks the low up to 960mb. Some serious blizzard conditions for a time in parts of Ireland before a transition to rain. I think the GFS is overdoing the low this time though...

Something doesn't look right about that chart. Clearly, with those uppers its 'wet wet wet' rather than 'snow patrol' in the South :D, but looking at the 500 chart I'm really surprised to see the milder air that far north!!

      Ooh yes, it's busy and with good reason - it's a rare beast to see the sort of charts we're seeing right now. It would appear the UK and much of Europe is headed into the freezer, but how cold, and for how long?
      As always, please keep to just discussing the model output in this thread.
      We have a thread open to discuss the cold spell - so if you're wanting to chat more generally about it, or talk about forecasts from the BBC, Met Office, Netweather etc, please head over there:

      It's also worth keeping an eye on is the blogs from our team including @Jo Farrow & @Nick Finnis, there's some great info about the SSW, the cold spell etc, and new articles will be posted regularly:
