    What if it does backtrack what if it doesn’t? Why do people care? Who is really going to be disappointed? I bet it the ones who are worried about others being disappointed- why the constant hang up about people being potentially disappointed?? 

    Because many of us come on here to learn and read credible posts. 
    the constant dramatic up and downs of the forum is exhausting 

    I couldn’t care less about disappointment with others, I just want facts instead of pages of massive histeria

    I have heard from a reliable source that henceforth the European high will be known as 'Prozac Ridge'

    I’m just wondering rather than having model verification stats, we should perhaps have poster verification stats. That way we can see who it’s worth paying attention to and who to disregard.....just a

    Yes, I agree. I wanted snow as much as anyone but along with others was never enthused with this spell. I don't claim any crystal ball or magical abilities, but I can (most of the time) read a chart a

    The excitement over on the MOD thread vs the Prozac prior 24hrs ago is enough to make any sane person want to vomit. 
     

    What on Earth are these poor souls going to do when it all back tracks to flatter pattern (because let’s me honest, it nearly always does) 

    Oh yeah.... post a 10 day chart 

    That nearly split out my drink in laughter 😅

    I see all the excited posts in the model forum, but nowhere is that reflected in any forecasts. I just see at best a couple of days with max of 3 or 4c for Glasgow. Hardly bitterly cold, our ave Dec high is 6c. Where is this optimism coming from?

    3C and snow showers piling in on north north-westerly? Yes please

    Most of us are not here to dream though 

    The constant contractions on the MOD threat is not dreaming, it’s draining! 

    Got to ask, why are you here?   People are following their interests and if that is hunting snow or cold Synoptics then so be it. Even if it never happens. 🤷🏻‍♂️  This is/was a friendly inclusive forum....

    But you seem concerned on what ‘they’ are going to do when the pattern flattens, what I see is posters saying what they see, some may ‘see’ something different, so if this is the case then that’s fine, particularly if backed up with model evidence, but please do not worry about what said posters may feel If it switches outlook, it seems there are some self flagellating  posters out there at the moment!

    Sorting the chaff from the wheat will make for a more enjoyable experience on the MOD thread.

    Sorry, the mod thread IS a roller coaster. You get a mix of great posts and some filler but so what? It’s much busier this time of year and when decent cold Synoptics are showing. 

    The busier the better. Also remember some people have different needs and expectations, maybe we should give people a break from criticism this year? Roll on ECM later, let’s hope the trend remains and chaos reigns?

    oh, and where are those mild SWly winds? 😊

    Sorry! Yeah ok 👍 I didn’t mean right now 😊 I mean next week. As were being predicted by some. Surely some agreement next week will be cold?

    Totally agree on people following their own interests, but to think it’s a friendly/inclusive forum Then you are very mistaken.

    Get a grip it’s always a 10 day chart, hence why we are here on 18th December basking extremely mild conditions despite the GFS and ECM throwing a dice 12 days ago 

    But of course, let’s be quiet to let the dreamers dream and the MOD posters chase rainbows 

    Someone needs to give a bit of realism and I’m happy to take the heat from fantasists

    Not always...I've seen a few over the years tick down from T240 to t0 and its the reason I'm in the chase. The best thing ever!

    Chasing something that never materialises is your own preference. Good luck with that 

    I’ve seen T240 once in 10 years = 2010

    If it always happened then it'd be no fun. Bit like if it was Christmas everyday. I'm no expert but this looks on track to me t144

    I thought moaning about other posters was not allowed in this, or any thread?

    Moan about the weather, by all means. But simply block said posters or pm them if you must have your say. But please stop whining about them in here!

    I think we're right to be sceptical of such impressive charts at 10 days, but this has been the culmination of many, many days of watching the ingredients for cold slowly aligning. 

    Of course, fine details and adjustments in hi res will probably mean any extreme solutions advertised won't play out, it's hardly ever as clean nearer the time, but I think it has to be said that this is no rogue easterly thrown out and then dropped immediately. 

    Very rare to get output like this being played with by all models for so long. Certainly has the feel of "one of those" winter spells inbound.

    There’s no moaning (as you call) about any posters 

    I’m merely commenting on the very fact that we can post post post inspirational posts on 10 day charts... that never materialise, to the same posters you say to stop whining about. 
     

    Struggling to see your point

    You are clearly complaining about posters commenting on model charts in the model thread. This is not the place to do that.

    If you have a problem with any posts in the model thread, report said post, pm the poster or put them on your ignore list.

    This is all I have to say on the matter, so as not to disrupt this thread anymore than it already has been.
