    This is going to sound a bit sad but don’t forget to look after the frogs in your pond. Many of them hibernate in the silt at the bottom and breathe through their skin ?

    if it freezes over for too long the oxygen runs out so make sure there is always a small hole ?

    Our frogs were croaking away Monday but I think they have changed their minds and gone back into hibernation!

    current radar shows a cluster heading SW which is likely to clip the Kent coast before heading off to France . . .

    Ohh  how lovely, for the French...:doh:

    Tomorrow - 1C                                                   Tuesday - 1C but likely to be an                    Wednesday - (-1C) Ice day for all

                                                                               ice day for most

    Thursday - (-1C ) again a regionwide ice     Friday - 4C (Take with a huge pinch of salt 

    day                                                                as this requires the milder air to actually reach us.

    I am 28 years old and this spell will be the coldest in my living memory (I can't recall 1991 as I was a wee nipper), this is the real deal so remember to wrap up warm, and be careful driving in what will likely be very icy and potentially snowy conditions. Also make sure that any vulnerable people you might know are okay, if the cold ends by the weekend it won't be too bad but if like the ECM op it continues into the following week then these people will likely struggle.

    Anyway, here it is, for all the let downs. This is a proper beast from the east.

    I can't understand why the BBC are paying  Metogroup or any supplier for that matter.

    I know they didn't renew met office contract to save money, which makes sense.

    But as licence payers what we should be asking is why do they need contract with anyone, they already have forecasters/presenters which are paid for a couple of minute recording why not just employ presenters/forecasters and ask them to use the free charts on Meteociel to make basis of their forecast I am sure they have the IT staff/capability to change free charts into graphics. If the forecasters aren't clever enough to do that get new ones.

    Its not like the meteogroup actually have better models as they don't have access to MOGREPS, and BBC only need to forecast  3 days ahead so the free GFS/UKMO charts ain't going to be wrong at that range anyway. Its just waste of money and they make themselves look stupid doing a 7 day ahead forecast which is obviously going to be very different come day 5 let alone 7.

    One of the main reasons I cancelled my TV licence.

    Love the storm glass pics! Have been looking for a good one. Can anyone name the one shown? Such a cool piece of forecasting history...

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
