    Can someone tell me which model is better? Gfs or icon? Because aspege and Icon have the channel low inland and gfs and ecm have it just off the south coast on Tuesday.. 

    I thought you were an expert looking at your disparaging remarks on the mod thread.

    GFS will always try to get the Atlantic back in until it is impossible, then follow in an over the top way the other models.

    Nond of the models know where the low will be yet, until how and when Storm Darcy moves away. It is pretty much now casting this next week for most of the precipitation.

    Another day, another 2 degree rain. I lost count of them. It's an absolute joke. 20 years ago this would have been all snow.   What a waste. So frustrating after a frustrating year and on to

    Given that euphoria brought on by too much 'sniffing the coffee' has now become an art form, a quick reminder that counselling is still available, Mon-Frid, at the 'nailed on' clinic

    Expert? No I’m an amateur but it seems the models do really well or really bad. There’s not really a “best one”

    I think most of us are going to wonder what the fuss is about , very little snow " Nationwide " and looks to be kept to the extremities out East

    I’m thinking the same. Will be very surprised to see more than a couple of cm here. 

    1987 is actually a very useful comparison as for 90% of the country it was a dry affair, with any significant snowfall restricted to Kent/Essex. This easterly is looking rather similar.

    Exactly. Boring dry and cold over here, it seems. Maybe the pleasant warmth from S Europe will find its way here by next weekend.

    Don't generally mind a bit of snow as a rule BB, but this year I'll settle for my vaccine, and uninterrupted distribution.

    🤣🤣.  No beating about the bush, then?   Absolutely love your humour, Knocker.  Maybe you should be saying ‘Winters over...”.   🤣🤣

    There wouldn't be any, apart from maybe a little over south coast and channel islands,

    The way everything is moving west each run, you would expect Greenland high eventually as BA mentioned earlier

    So why is everyone getting so hyped saying It’s another beast...

    Because it would be a level of deep cold not seen in the UK for many years over and extended period of time should that come off with such a strong Scandi High, trust me the last thing you would want with those synoptics is snowfall.

    Ummm are you saying that to a coldie who loves snow 🤣 how can you not want snow out of it?  of course I’d want snowfall it would be the first thing I’d want. It’s nothing shocking Canada temperatures are even more extreme then that..  but again people calling it BFTE... when really it’s just dry cold high pressure hardly exciting.

    Veering out of the realms of model discussion into snow impact discussion so swivelling across here to continue this debate.

     

    Infrastructural issues caused by some of those temperatures would be damaging enough and take long enough to fix without people needing to wait for roads to be cleared to get to the affected outages. If my powers going to go out  due to frozen power lines etc I'd like it to be dry enough outside a) they can fix it sharpish and b) I can go out in it.

    Fair enough! I like seeing extreme weather events packed with snow and those temps! Would be historic even if it lasted a couple days!

    There should be quite a bit of snow from the next 4-5 days - maybe not as much as 2010, March 2013 or March 2018 but widespread snowfall is highly likely.

     

    The snowless but extremely cold feature were looking at is the Scandi high that the models are starting to pick up on/suggest for the end of the week. If it aligns right it could kick in and maintain existing snow-cover without really giving much more.

    For most of the country that appears to be the case yes. Very little snow on offer unless you live in Kent/Essex or get lucky enough to be under a streamer.

    Hopefully we shall see some snow but away from Essex/Kent it will be limited in my opinion. Just going to be cold, and hopefully sunny days. For the vast majority it will be a let down compared to what was shown just a few days back unless you line cold without snow. Hopefully I will be wrong!!!

    Dry cold. No snow... hardly great 

    Snow can crop up at short notice in these types of setup. The cold will be in place and I’m sure many places will appreciate a chance to dry out a bit, after the incessant rain recently. Plus, you’re well placed for any diving lows or attempted Atlantic incursions.
