    already looking forward to spring. It's bright, sunny and fairly mild. With the evenings drawing out and becoming lighter, i'm getting that 'spring' feeling, even got a bit of Spring cleaning done this afternoon

    Temp managed to get up to 8.4°C. 14mm of rain today and it looks like more is developing to my South.

    Well... that cold spell disappeared quite quickly. Odds on the ECM producing a BOOM chart next? 

    At least I'm going to the Alps for snow in Februrary now because I can't be bothered to be in the UK in winters like this.

    Cold spell is still likely, it's just not meeting a lot of people's expectations, due to the fact that they take operational runs too seriously. There's still huge uncertainty from day 5 onwards, so I wouldn't get too hung up with what is being posted in the model thread.

    I just take a day at a time, that's good enough for me.

    Just an edit; When I say about what's being posted in the model thread, I meant the usual suspects with their moans about how an operational run has 'flipped'.

    Worra naff ol day, spent the time fiddlin about and figuring out the nuts & bolts of the Davis I bought. Steel pole arrived this week so can at least get things out there now, as SW appears to be running. So back to the fun stuff, Temp: 5.9 °C & Dew Point: 5.5 °C, which suggests the RH97% as no surprise. Rainfall wise, looking at around 14mm since it first started to rain..

    True, it can be very misleading in there sometimes and part of me still believes there will be a cold spell, but the endless IMBY people and contradicting posts really confuse me sometimes.

    Certainly does make it hard going in there, you can have you choice of anything from one extreme through the middle of the road to the other extreme, whilst it's good to see people air their views, I do wish sometimes people would just apply some savvy rather than shooting from the hip. Anywayz, that damn area of rain seems to be stuck in a whirlpool over Poole bay as just doesn't want to B... off.

    I found the BBC forecast amusing earlier this evening with Chris Fawkes talking of showers through today in Central Southern areas.

    It’s actually rained nonstop from before dawn and is still drizzling now. There’s been some heavy bursts mixed in and I have 13mm in my gauge.

    Obviously not the wettest day ever but a right soaker and the most rain in one go since 23rd December.

    Re: the latest model output. Yes, I want snow as much as the next person. But I could live with cold zonal for the time being, temperatures in mid single digits and some nice sunny days and clear nights. It's the next best thing, better than SW'lys!

    I imagine @karlos1983 is bouncing off the walls at the moment, but not 'cos the ECM is offering more jam tomorrow. 2-0.

    I’m really happy, thought we were going to get beat!?

    I see the MOD thread and Model Banter thread have been closed whilst the mods decide where to go from here. I feel for them I really do. It’s been the worst I have known it these past couple of days.

    How a bit of frozen water or lack of turns some people towards sniping at each other really is sad. I love snow as much as most who frequent this forum but there is more to life than this surely?

    I know it makes me quite sad as I know everybody wants to get a long but they let this get the better of them. Everyone is nice in the regional threads though?

    On a bright note: we have the happy reaction back!
