    BBC do not use UKMO data so that’s not really surprising 

    I didn't know. 

    Still snow on the ground up your way FG ...

    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

    Sorry it's just windy and wet. Very little chance of snow, maybe some transient snow at attitude (>300m) which will quickly disappear.

    Going forward more wet weather followed by high pressure and some warmth from the SW looking likely.

    Not much in the way of cold or snow fingers crossed for another chance mid Jan going into February.

    lol good  guess,seems like you just made it up. lets see how accurate you are,not very likely looking at that forecast ,mild from the SW? where you get that forecast from fl from gfs i guess,good luck🤣

    Sadly this was never looking like a snowy spell of weather. Cold, yes, but not snowy.

    For some in northern Britain including parts of Midlands it’s been snowier than expected. Here close to central London the current temp is 1C after a low of -2C which was easily my coldest temp of 2020. Nice seasonal winter weather, which should hopefully help with lowering SSTs and ground temps.

    Oh absolutely, it's been lovely and seasonal.

    We seem to have a lot of posters on here falling into the trap of commenting on the massive swings in each run and react accordingly, this is the quickest way to a nervous breakdown.

    Many moons ago a well respected poster said to compare runs, I.e yesterday’s 6z with today’s 6z for a better idea of where things are going! I don’t know the science behind the runs but it does seem to work!

    Good advice 👍 and some fall for bbc and other weather apps showing a degree or two temperature rise 7 to 10 days away. 😂

    Nice cold, sunny weather at the moment.  If we can't have any more snow this is the next best thing.

    The MetO have been steadfast in high pressure dropping south next week and it becoming dry and cold, despite the fantasy charts ... kudos to them if they have been calling this right the whole time

    Well, interesting to see what the main players come up with this afternoon, because if the update from those we cant mention here is anyway near the mark, we had may as well all go to the school of learning to read weather charts!😂

    I'd honestly take it all day, just don't want that easterly and horrible cold rain. If it's not gonna be cold enough for snow, let's just keep it cold and dry at the surface.

    Source of this info: trust me bro.

    Can you at least support your comments with some data and charts before posting random and unsubstantiated comments like this?

    I know there have been a few messages mentioning that the models are showing some "less cold" conditions, but this doesn't mean mild. It also doesn't mean they will be accurate. Yesterday the met office and bbc forecast temps in the SE to be between 4c - 6c, this morning it was 3c - 5c, but if you look at the current temps, most places have barely made it to 0c. In my neck of the woods (nearest weather station is Kenley) yesterday it showed it would be 4c today, this morning that was down to 1c, and in reality it has only got to -1c (so far). If there is 2c difference in the nowcast, that variability is more than likely in 10 days time.

    i'm sure snow will arrive, it is just a question of when rather than if.

    Looks precisely what the METO were  banging on about a week or so ago, high pressure over the UK for the beginning of January. 

    Plenty of places that have been deluged and flooded will be very grateful for a prolonged dry spell. A uk high would do the job.

    Yes, easterly incoming.

    Yes an Easterly is incoming.

    But no snow, the air has a mix  of warmer European air.

    Also the North Sea, is above average temperature at the moment

    This will result in Rain I am afraid

    Why are people picking out 384 hr charts and stating them as fact that the cold won’t be happening! 
     

    There is so much to play for in the short term!!!! Just enjoy and stop looking for the end before it starts!!

    Who's stating facts? Should all be taken as fun 😂

    Seems to be alot of runs now that have diluted any depth of cold in the 5th to 10th January time frame.

    It certainly isn't a comment on 'just one run' rather a trend across most models in the last 48hrs.

    Any trend can of course change back to somthing more favorable in terms of depth and sustained cold and snowy solutions and that too can become a trend!

    Fingers crossed we are at a building blocks stage and patience will be rewarded with the SSW on the horizon too.
