    Would be ridiculous to have anything as good, but you don't need a setup that good, an overnight runner could do the trick - Think March 5th(ish) 1995.

    these days though, runners/sliders seem to track further South, mainly S of M4 events, where this was more of a Scotland event

    I do agree with you there. We got 2 ice days last March (ones with snow cover) but it was exceptional! It is so much easier to get ice days in the middle of winter. On Friday last week with snow on the ground we only got up to 2c with -7 uppers whereas the during the beast, lots of the days got maximums of 3 or 4 degrees with -15/-16 uppers.

    On my books it didnt get above 0 anytime between tuesday and friday evening of that week in north east london. On the wednesday, where I was in central london had a maximum of -1.5

    is that -6 Steve? - with relative humidity of 92% as well? - people say that IF that would have been in Jan with those uppers, we would have been struggling to see temps above -5c, well i have news, here we did see temps struggling to get much above that. add in 70mph gusts on the Thursday as well - it was perishing cold - even for me.

    Ecm is pants the lows coming in from Canada just blast any attempt of blocking out the way. A one day Northerly topper, how many times have we seen that the last 30 odd years.

    Not liking it at all, i am hoping the 12z eps can follow the 0z so we can then get an overview of what is likely to happen late February / early March by way of the EC46 later.

    Lightning very rarely strikes twice in consecutive late winter/early spring periods...I'd be surprised to see anything cold and snowy again this late Feb/March period...

    And being as you love the heat froze, I would say the chances of a repeat of summer 18 was about equally as likely, ?

    The ECM is atrocious . The PV lobe gets reinforced from the Asian side and it’s game over by day 6.

    After it’s better 00 hrs run this is a horror show and unless the UKMO is on the right track then the first half of February is looking like a write off for cold .

    I remember (I think it was the evening March 2nd 1995), quite a few places in the south got fair amount of snow.

    5 inches in Birmingham - it was on a Thursday night definitely.

    Shocking.

    The shredded pv has just not worked for us on this side of the pole with a large chunk held around Canada.It seems the best we got was the north westerlies feeding into a cold upper Euro trough over the last couple of weeks culminating in snowfall around the uk in recent days.

    The current modeling over the Arctic makes it difficult to see anything blocky up there and the signs of the pv reforming are not positive for cold.

    The best we can hope for is the suggestion of a building ridge over nw Europe around mid-month,showing in the ens.and this builds further north later on.The mjo is now showing in favourable phases 7/8 but there is usually a delay factor of these feeding through of around 10/14 days so let's not write Winter off yet.This hasn't exactly been a reliable factor so far but it is one possible positive in what are very poor outputs this evening.

    I see where your coming from, but there's still time surely! I mean if we end up with bad background signals for next winter, a good many will be throwing the towel in before it's started. ?

    It was -4C where I was in Southampton on 1st of March 2018... I haven't experienced anything like that before. Perhaps not too surprising though because there was a lot of cloud cover, strong winds and -15C uppers. The cloud in particular held back the maximums that day. Prior to that maximums during the beast were between 0 and -2C.

    We can only hope, that being 10 days away, it will have just as little chance of verifying as all those day 10 easterly charts.

    Please ensure that the majority of your posts in this thread are model related - a theme of model discussion needs to run throughout.
    Some off topic chat and reactions are ok, but please use other, more relevant threads for entirely off-topic chat (such as snow reports, met office forecasts and general chat/moans about the weather or this winter).

    For more no banter and just model discussion please head to the new focused model thread - this is also a great place to post (or cross post) your longer model summaries or thoughts around the models.

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
