  hi GP any thoughts on mid to late February to see if we are going to get anything from the SSW down willing 

Still look to have potential. I have the SSW maxing in impacts end of month.

It’s been a very very slow trop response to this one. It’s like the strat warming delivered a punch to the PV but failed to deliver a killer blow. Thinking maybe the change in the QBO had something to do with it and/or the warming wasn’t quite in the right place for us.

That SSW apparently has been running a few weeks now, but obviously has had little effect to our weather pattern so far.

A thin wedge of hope to cling to!

Seems pretty much inline with the Hirlam for mid day to me.

I've got 2 weather apps on my phone: one predicts light flurries, the other (accuweather) shows a 7hr event.

Well this winter has been dreadful for most of the country and especially here in the east midlands.  Not even had that many frosts compared to normal years and as for snowfall...........!  And it looks like today's snow will hardly touch us neither.  Absolute dross of a winter.

met offce raw data now gone from 4 hrs heavy snow in Hereford later evening to 6 hrs of it a bit earlier. Must be a signal for an upgrade?

I mean this with sincere respect but I'm quite surprised you look at the MetOffice app, considering you are very well versed in meteorology. Unless there's something about that app which we all don't know 😮

Hopefully but I doubt they'd publish new warnings of the area and extent at this timeframe unless they were very sure. Probably just mild run to run variances of their internal models.

It's all automated stuff I know, but gives an insight into their fine mesh raw model outputs
