    I just woke up from a great dream!- I dreamt London was going to get a second easterly in a matter of weeks this weekend.

     

     

     

    I cant wait to walk in the snow on Saturday evening after Ireland have won the Grand Slam.  Well, i think England will beat Ireland , but i'll still be happy in the snow:yahoo:

    I'm losing the will to live.  Once again, for those at the back. The main snow risk isn't until 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. The colde

    So the cold is almost at an end with a steady thaw expected over the coming days. As such the region will be one again. May I just say that the last week has been a real experience and I must tha

    Some people need to grow up. If you want to bicker and snipe do it via PM. Because the rest of us don’t want to know.

    Convergence line removed from the Thames on latest fax which is a shame. But still plenty to look forward to this weekend.

    Whilst the low pressure systems moving se into France are changing their orientation, run to run, so will the subtle direction of the flow from the east and these convergence zones will come and go. this mornings runs from some models are less enthusiastic re sat night snow in the se but that could change next run. the pattern and consequential snowfall distribution is not dependant on one specific like the cold pool.

    reduced totals in the SE on 'some' models due to to many northward corrections ( circa 150 miles )

    I see that comments are all over the place on snow potential for the South East .  All a bit of a yawn really isn't it?  I even see a comment that a beast from the east will deliver to the west i.e Devon Somerset but actually miss the south east out. How the heck does that work. Bearing in mind I got  sod all here last time I will not be impressed if the models can't even get a grip with 36 hours to go. How can they suddenly shift north at such a short timescale unless they are(lets face it we know ) pretty sodding useless at detai

    edited as loads of weird characters appeared presumably a filter for swearing (pretty tame to be honest) odd

    BBC seem less enthusiastic about snow in SE this weekend!

    This is what I don't really get. Avery again last night on the 21:55 forcast showed EA/SE Cloudy with no snow and yet had a persistent shower train of snow coming in around the Hull area and pushing westward. 

    The rest of the uk showed nothing at all. Then Sundays event he had Ireland covered in snow, some in the SW and nothing everywhere else.

    Either the man is an idiot and can't read charts so something is going on that everyone else is missing?

    I'd still rather put my faith in Steve M etc but with a day to go surely the BBC's forecasts would be matching our guys on here!

    Very gloomy miserable day today, very darkoutside, grey skies, continuous drizzle, everything dripping wet, still warm but slightly colder than yesterday, if we are to have snow by tomorrow morning there would have to be a really dramatic drop in temperature by this evening.

    It’s likely the convergence zone has gone because the cloud sheet associated with the front in the Channel would stop convection.

    There maybe some briefly especially towards the ne of London.

    After the front clears there’s another window of opportunity as 850 values are still quite low however there is less instability at that stage so probably not as widespread.

    The models still disagree on how much snow will develop off that front in the Channel . So you might lose some convection but still get a decent covering.

    Given the timeframes the models do seem to be making a lot of drama over what’s normally deemed the reliable timeframe .

    The current forecast is for the heavier snow to miss the south east. However, all the major forecasters are emphasising that this is open to change. We will have a much better idea of what we can expect this time tomorrow, by which time the models should be converging on a solution. Tiny changes in the models can result in huge changes in where, when  and how much snow falls.

    Essentially what’s happened is an extension to the cold . You can see by the fax chart for Midday Monday and compare that with last nights T96 hrs.

    The UKMO raw output still has sub -10 values over most of the region at midnight Sunday and there’s still sub 528 dam covering the region 12 hours later .

    The push north in the pattern has taken lower heights further west and nw which stops a quicker sinking of the high.

    So its swings and roundabouts really. Probably just a case of nowcasting as there’s a lot going on in the space of 48 hrs.

    Morning and happy Friday all ?

    Hope everyone is well, I must admit when I looked at some of the above comments today felt a bit of sadness rush in my heart. I really hope we get the snow here on Saturday night it will be such a shame if this turns out to be just a slight dusting event.

    We will have to see how the rest of today's output pans out but fingers crossed.

    Anyway I am in MK today back to work after my sick leave. Hope you all have a lovely day and stay safe.

    take care all kind regards

    The 6z ICON that's rolling out now is a tad further to the south (cf. the 0z run) upto 18z Sat - but the Thames streamer is much more muted.  All swings and roundabouts as one would expect.

    It’s very quiet this morning. Need advice really. It’s my baby girls 2nd birthday on Sunday.  My husband has told me that he’s invited his perantsbt come down from London for some lunch. I didn’t invite anyone just because I was aware of the weather situation.  He then tells me that he’s invited my mum and dad. I did a food shop on Tuesday and didn’t get “party food”  I was just going through do a little party for the family then something next week.  Question 1: How bad might this be ??? Question 2: all my apps including meto are telling me it’s going to snow from 6am sat morning? Is this a potential??? I was goIng to get food tomorrow morning early??????? HELLLLLLLPPPPPP

    GFS precipitation type has a lot of our region under snow for 30 hours. Clearly it won't be totally accurate but surely lots to be optimistic about. Our main snow last time came from something that wasn't forecast.

    Just had a quick look basically nothing has yet been decided, when it comes to where will get the heavy snow. We know the cold is coming, time to start looking at radar from when we wake up tomorrow.

    Trying to predict snow let alone a Thames streamer is almost a hour by hour watch, as you say they are notorious for slipping under any model

    Just checked radar and looked like the sun is helping to build showers in the south today, let's see what they do later.
