Due to the very strong SSW influence, there will be further cold outbreaks at times during March & April across Western/Central Europe including UK/Ireland.

Baby beast. 

How are -14C uppers deemed infantile? While the longevity isn’t there with deep cold still remarkably cold. I think you not so long ago called it over with. Soon to be beast is a grown young man the last was a mature old man. :p 

Only concern atm is UKMO but hopeful it will hop on board with others models with direct hit.

Don’t really take too much notice of the BBC forecasts since they lost Met Office, what were they showing for Sunday, 8C? :D

I’m supposed to be running the Brentwood Half Marathon on Sunday- do you think the snow will be significant?

yes. i'm meant to have another hospital appointment but i wont go out if it snows.At least i'm still stocked up with tinned and nonperishable food for myself, if it looks like being a few snowy days i'll have to pop out for the bird's fresh meat on friday.At least the baby has a good covering of feathers now so i wont worry about him getting cold.

Morning all,

Just a final reminder, to any South East members still contemplating entering my " Cheltenham Tipping Competition", you have until 1 pm, to get your entry in. You'll find the "simple rules" and how to enter, on the Cheltenham Tipping thread, in the Sports Zone Forum. If you'd like to enter, please post your selections, there.

The lady above ^^^^^, has entered, thank you JennyJane.

Regards, 

Tom. :hi:

Any chance we could keep betting and horse racing in Cheltenham in the proper thread - I don’t come on here to be enticed into betting / gambling etc . Cheltenham is not even in the south east ! Just a thought !

Models toying with different ideas but it looks like we could be looking at 3-4 day cold spell with snow around, BUT you will need cloud cover and low temps to stop any melting as previously mentioned the sun is now 50% stronger than it was 2 weeks ago, which I struggle to understand but it was from a senior forecaster so I'm not going to question it

Well once again the easterly is looking very likely and some cold temps with it. The question is will we get the snow in? I really hope its a nice low with hours and hours of snow not the showers from the north sea, radar watching hoping a blob comes our way.

Intresting, comments made about a little low coming out of Denmark towards us at the weekend which would enhance any showers and bring longer periods of snow. Long way off though

Yeah I saw that - I hope it does as we missed out on the sw/midlands/wales low the other week. As you say a long way off but what a way to go out if it did.

Seeing how quickly it melted snow with sub zero dp’s and air temps last time, it will make quick work of lying snow nearly three weeks further on. As you say, cloud cover will be important, as long as the feed is continental keeping those dew points sub zero.

this won’t be as good as the last spell but locally we could see heavier snowfall occur which would clearly give a different impression in these areas.

spring shows no sign of springing ........
