    I've just trawled the GFS 12Z, searching in vain for 'wedges' and other assorted 'small windows of opportunity', and I must have 'lost it' -- all I can see is Continental Europe swathed in yellow/orange hues, for the foreseeable...?:oldgrin:

    Maybe I just need to improve my ability at telling the difference between wedges and waffles. Who knows?!:shok:

    love a wedgie me.enough of my waffling anyway im on the hunt for extreme easterlies and -15 850s.game on

    Morning all Yesterday was one of my favourite Meteorological Winter days of all time - no snowfall but -4c to start the day with a lovely sunrise, frost stayed on the ground at sea level all day,

    One of the cold persuasion waiting for snow

    You could apply that to gale lovers, why would you want a potentially destructive storm causing death, damage, disruption? You could apply that to thunderstorm lovers, why would you want a severe

    All this rain is getting boring and depressing now. It's been mostly like this since late September, with cool and sunny days very few and far between. Hopefully, that will change soon.

    Dec is rarely a cold and snowy month,so people writing off December arent proving their clever or anything as it’s normal for the month not to be severe or anything.

    Think we have never had a single Cet in December of even -1 c ,proves the point

    The trick is to try and forecast when a cold spell is likely,and not many are successful in doing that,only the Met seem pretty good,they forecast the cold spell of March 2018 weeks in advance.

    Seems and age that we have had severe cold and snow in Janauary,perhaps this will change this time..

    That may be the case but what I have noticed is the lack of snowfalls pre Xmas certainly in the last 20 years.Here in the pennines it was almost guaranteed to snow pre Xmas in the 70s,80s and 90s even if that were a covering for a day or two.Nowadays it is almost the opposite yet we seem to have had more snow events in March to buck the trend,not sure why that is.

    I think the march cold spells are tied in with ssw events.the general trend in the uk does seem to lend itself to milder winters in general.maybe there are exeptions to the rule 09-10 but gw I think is starting to show its hand now imo

    @ICE COLD / @John90 On the local SE weatherJH chatted about the weather leading up to Christmas to the presenters and said things look very unsettled and changeable at the moment but he wouldn't rule out anything, even seeing some 'white stuff' in the south. The 'hint' was in the way he worded it and and gave a wry smile. ?

    Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. I've gone out a fair few xmas day walks in recent years without a coat it's been that mild.

    It's like chasing rainbows or waterfalls. Might need to stick to the river streams and lakes for now until some concensus towards proper cold (below -5c average 850s) appears inside t120.?‍♂️

    My thoughts exactly....charts seem to be all over the place with no 'real' sign of any decent low 850's heading our way...but with this in mind, what instances have we had where by the charts have suddenly flipped and unexpected proper cold has landed on our shores ??...does this actually happen...can anyone remember such a situation ??

    It's not that difficult to chase a waterfall, although perhaps ill-advised. :oldsmile:

    Don't go chasing waterfalls
    Please stick to the rivers
    And the lakes that you're used to
    I know that you're gonna have it
    Your way or nothing at all
    But I think you're moving too fast

    Today has been absolutely vile. It’s rained solid now for over 24 hours. No weather warning from the MetO, absolute nothing. 

    like you said on the regional thread, enough is enough now. I’m sick to the back teeth of the constant rainfall we’ve had.

    You and me both nws which is why more attention should be focust on the synoptic detail in the first five days. Of course that's just my biased opinion

    And it may not be too bad at the beginning of next week until the fronts from this low arrive but hopefully not much rain on them either
