    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🤣

    Indeed let's see. But I never said mild, where did you get that from? I said warmth from the SW which has just been confirmed by this evenings ECM for about ten days.

    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

    Here you go. Latest and after my "guess".

    Hope I'm wrong but ultimately the MO are likely on the right track.

    Still the weather, and therefore algorithm outputs, can change so fingers crossed (I enjoy snow, skiing, proper winter). I've learnt to read the weather as it can affect me financially.

    Keeping away from the model thread today.

    It's getting highly mundane with people's constant detailed analysis of troughs and shortwaves on day 10 charts. Why don't people just use it as a trend and give details on more realistic time framed charts.

    It seems that some people constantly chase that day 10 chart and it could be blowing a blizzard outside but they would miss it just for that "told you so moment". 

    Rant over 🤣🤣🤣👍

    Happy new year to all folks on here. My hope as usual is for a return of mild west/south westerlies. I hate snow and ice with a vengeance and where I live has just so happened to have been in the firing line 2 days running on Monday and Tuesday morning for about 3 or 4 inches of snow. Now the pavements/side roads are just death traps. Snow ice compacted. Glad for the kids and all that who love it but I will be glad when it melts and goes away.

    The beginning of the breakdown begins.....past experience tells me that more than anything else begins. Been here way too many times to even care! A brief cold snap yes, but nothing in terms of widespread snowfall ahead. Oh well it was entertaining at least! WE will never learn...😂😂😂😂....Happy new year folks! 😂😂😂😂😂

    The GFS seems consistent in bringing milder weather at the end of its runs, has been for days, that's coming into view in ECMWF now too.  But it's irrelevant because the people who develop the numerical simulations know absolutely nothing about the stratosphere, which is what I'm apparently supposed to believe.  Meanwhile, some heavy rain in Darlo last night, from a NNEasterly in the heart of winter.

    The BBC isn't a model - Mutt Hugo isn't a model (apologies if he does this on the side), but this is the model discussion thread!

    Happy New Year. 😐

    That's a bit harsh... @MattHugo I reckon could look good on a cat walk! 😉

    Happy New Year!

    It was the most ridiculous thing ever. If not even a NNE easterly ,in the heart of winter ,at night ,with frozen ground everywhere can produce snow in the north-east anymore I think it means that it's really time to give up.

     

    This damn global warming has really ruined everything.

    Yes, I think it's difficult to remain optimistic about UK winters in terms of very cold, snowy conditions.

    Obviously, it's still possible that very cold air and wintry conditions could reach UK sometime in the future.

    But, when you look at the current pattern, it's so hard to accept that there's just not enough deep cold air in the correct place for us to benefit.

    Yet another, close but no cigar!

    And, it looks like we will lose the advantage and a return to more normal pattern after next week.

    Hopefully, SSW events might produce something more exciting in few weeks time, who knows?

    even with easterly winds you need the correct set-up or you get less cold conditions,with winds from a warmer source and not directly from Siberia,the  Easterly..winds are sourced from the med next week,hence not as cold as they could be..yet.

    I hate how in uk everything has to be perfect to get deep cold and snow to low-levels,fantastic in the highlands now,but cant travel there!

    Yes indeed , not everyone has to be a snow and ice lover ,  I detest it , not great when you have to travel to 15miles to work early mornings on untreated roads wondering weather you will actually get there in one piece, you can be as careful as you want , but there is the risk of other idiots smashing into you ,  plus inevitably snow goes grey , messy and slushy  after a while.    More of a storms/thunder person myself ,  I know that can bring flash flooding and the associated misery or wind damage ,  but any weather types has risks .

    I think you’ll find the air being sourced in the Med will also have adverse effects across the continent, perhaps more so being closer to the source. We’re not alone.
