    Yay, at last, all this chilly weather and we have been rewarded,  with rain, we are so lucky lucky lucky, lol,  and nothing but cloud and rain for the foreseeable.

    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

    Some people aren't satisfied until they get a deep covering maybe a foot or more.. I'd be satisfied with seeing a few flakes falling, that's how low I've set my bar, doesn't matter what the synoptics look like anymore..

    I think quite a few people on here are too obsessed with wanting to be around for a historic whether event they can't appreciate the run of the mill ones. Or even the slightly remarkable ones. There's a couple of inches of snow outside, go enjoy it.

    What's going on? Temperature 0C. Dewpoint -0.7C. All models forecasting snow for my area. Even the Met Office give snow. What is actually happening?

    Rain 

    Blasted warm air aloft!

     

    I think I’ve figured out your problem wet bulb zero level too high.

    I've just seen the very sobering post from John Holmes in the mod thread.

    I'm beginning to think our hopes of a noteworthy spell of wintry weather during the next couple of weeks look like being dashed once again!

    It just feels virtually impossible to get the required set-up in order to deliver really cold air into UK  ☹️

    In south Yorkshire we have been rewarded with snow so you can't really say that "we" will get rain for the foreseeable....

    Personally, I make the same mistake every year at the start of the winter. Watching the models beyond 72 hours for the long term.

    Even the ensembles are a joke after 120 hours.. ECMWF ensembles today changed from -6 to -3 in just one run for 180 hours ahead!!!

    I am stopping model watching for a week

    Quite a dumping of snow here on the very low elevation Wigan area during Sunday night /Monday,  well for here at least

    Whats strange the places a few miles just north of here and higher ground such as the aptly named Winter Hill got very little if any ,  thats almost unheard of , not normal for this area  , but since when has 2020 been normal

    Cold spell, what cold spell? I get some places have seen snow, but the majority of places have just seen a wet mix at best. We're barely touching freezing point at night and it's dull, dreary and damp. And to top it off, if the easterly forecast from the weekend/beginning of the week brings nothing but cold rain I just cba anymore.

    I understand the current pattern we're in is phenomenal, but unfortunately we just don't have enough cold air on offer to tap into. I know everyone keeps saying the cold will come and we've got the SSW to come. But there's no guarantees that will work out for us, it could just put the states in the freezer with a Bartlett over us and Europe.

    Synoptically everything just feels a waste right now, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that way!

    The met office have issued a level 3 alert for severe cold weather in northern England

    Current alert level: Level 3 - Cold Weather Action

    Issued at: 09:01 on Tue 29 Dec 2020

    There is a 90% probability of severe cold weather/icy conditions/heavy snow between 0900 on Tuesday 29 Dec and 0900 on Friday 01 Jan in parts of England. This weather could increase the health risks to vulnerable patients and disrupt the delivery of services. Please refer to the national Cold Weather Plan and your Trust's emergency plan for appropriate preventive action.

    The current spell of colder weather is expected to continue through the remainder of this week, due to cold northerly air affecting the country. Temperatures are expected to fall be at persistently low single figures, particularly across the northern England, with an increased risk of meeting alert criteria. All areas are likely to see cold, overnight conditions, with a risk of icy patches and overnight frosts. Temperatures in some areas will then remain in low single figures during the daytime. Showers will be mainly restricted to coastal areas, but where these move inland, they may turn wintry, with low temperatures resulting in a chance of snow to low levels at times, especially across the north. An area of rain, which could turn to sleet or snow at times, is forecast to affect southern regions and maybe southern central areas from Wednesday afternoon and perhaps into Thursday. Although there is low confidence in the exact track and northerly extent of the rain, sleet and snow, there is a risk that it could produce snow accumulations to low levels across parts of southern and southeastern England. A widespread ice risk is then forecast following the clearance of the rain. The trend in temperatures and wintry conditions will be monitored, with a likelihood that the warning will be extended through into next week.

    An update will be issued when the alert level changes in any region. Alerts are issued once a day by 0900 if required and are not subject to amendment in between standard issue times. Note that the details of the forecast weather are valid at the time of issue but may change over the period that an alert remains in force. These details will not be updated here unless the alert level also changes, the latest forecast details can be obtained at the following link: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/#?tab=map

    A good 2-3 cm of snow today. Totally unexpected the forecast was showing sleet and showers for the morning. Winter has started off well imo. This December albeit quite mild CET-wise has been the most interesting since 2010 for my area with the snow at the start of the month, a flurry on Christmas Day and today.

    Classic case of counting their chickens before they’re hatched!! Including me too.. sort of.. it’s hard not to get carried away with the output that was being shown but no doubt further chops and changes to be expected (hopefully).
