    Briefly flirted with sub zero last night but up to 4C already, so on the borderline of cold spell territory here. Certainly not expecting anything wintry.

    Some real classic 80s cold & snowy charts showing on the 06z gfs for the west country, one of these days such charts with count down to T0!

    Huge potential for lots of frontal snowfall in our part of the world, might be time to start stocking up on a few essentials such as bread, milk and copious amounts of booze.

    Good stuff.

    It got to -1.1°C this morning. Currently cloudy and windy. Temp 6.2°C

    I'm still not entirely convinced by these epic charts, particularly the operational runs. They are overdoing it somewhat.

    Colder weather looks odds on but i'm standing well back with regards to anything else - my bias is more for my location of course.

    Latest from the Met

    UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Feb 2019 to Saturday 16 Feb 2019:

    The cold weather will continue as we head through the first half of February. There is a greater risk of seeing snow at lower levels as well as on the hills. Some drier and brighter periods are possible in the northwest, but in the south there is a chance of weather fronts approaching which bring a risk of rain, sleet and perhaps significant snow at times.

    A repeat of Dec '81 would be nice, multiple low pressure systems dumping a fair bit of snow. 

    Time to stock up on extra food for all the wildlife that visits my garden everyday, just in case the weather does get bad.

    Not a drop of rain yet today in spite of the radar showing it moving this way earlier on, a lot went north rather than north east and, although the radar showed light rain here at tone point, nothing reached the ground.  Suspect it won't stay dry for much longer.

    Looking forward in the near future to hopefully getting into the stage where we all congregate in our regionals and get down to some radar watching. Here are a few saved from Feb / March 18 to whet the appetite, all snow circulating in the low to the channel. Epic times.

    Could be a memorable spell coming up soon also, everything crossed.

    I remember that day! I spent all of it being sick inside ? That was the last proper snow fall before March 2018.

    How nice...

     

    I’d assume as it’s on the back edge the next frame might be different.

    GFS has been showing that with snow on the backedge of the rain for Monday night/Tuesday morning for a few runs now, nice. But I'm not going to take precip charts in face value just yet ?

    Agreed. I think it'll just be a cold wet mess for us on Tuesday. Whenever there's that much of Westerly component to the wind direction, it's just horrible. Might see a few flakes on the back edge though.

    You're better placed anyway, as you've got 60+ metres on me.

    I'm sure we'll be fine as we move through next week and beyond.
