    Hi everyone Been lurking on this site for probably around 12 years. Used to lurk on TWO. Never post but just wanted to share some pics from Folkestone Warren this evening looking out along the wh

    Some more photos from a local walk this morning. The freezing fog made everything special...

    Lots of Boom Posts starting to appear again in the MOD Thread so things could start to get interesting in the run upto the weekend as the models start showing the period 21-23rd by the 8th Jan runs.

    Now it’s a long way away atm but potential for something at the weekend maybe ? I mean I am not getting my hopes up at all and will not bother looking again until the rain and floods pass Wednesday/Thursday but just wondering if anyone thinks there is a small potential?

     

    I am spending the next two/three days in and out of hospital to sort out my priosis (however it’s spelt) of the skin. 
     

    so hope you all stay safe and well and hopefully come back to some promising news or build up for the weekend 

     

    stay safe all !!!

    Saturday night into Sunday holds a little interest but again, as been the story of the winter, looks a bit on the wrong side of marginal away from the highest areas. 

    We probably need the jet to ease of a bit before anything of real interest occurs, unless it can dig a bit further south than is being modelled. 

    Might be quite a bit into February before we really see that, if at all.

    After all that hype the weekend was a disappointment . The expectation of snow is almost as good as the snow itself so , on to the next event.

    On the bright side, if we don't get anything decent over the next few weeks, at least we'll be closing in on noticeably lighter evenings (and early spring warmth with any luck). Love that transition period, probably one of my favourite times of the year. 

    Add that to the vaccine rollout and plenty to be positive about, even in the midst of a pretty miserable winter in every sense so far 👍

    It was definitely a little lighter this morning under clear skies and a frost.

    Morning all,

    Hope I find yourselves and your Families, well.

    I see there's quite a bit of pessimism on the Model Thread again, this Morning.

    It's not beyond the realms of possibility, that we might see the opposite, to which occured in some parts of the Region, on Saturday just gone.

    Rather than a Snow > Rain event, perhaps a Rain > Snow event.

    This wouldn't require a lot of tweaking, to deliver the above.

     image.thumb.png.eaff5c88242de782f7b18d7a5720dd0e.png

    I had a long telephone conversation with an acquaintance of mine, South East Meteorologist Ian Currie.

    It was Mr. Currie who kindly gave me permission to reproduce images of those Snow photos, from the Kent and Surrey Weather Books, that he co-wrote.

    Ian is quite happy, the way his Long Range Winter Forecast, is panning out at the moment.

    His L.R.F. went for a mixed December, January on the cold side,

    Let's hope Ian is right about his prediction for February. He goes for a colder than average Month, with a little bit of Snow around. Not a Snow Fest by any means but certainly more than we've seen so far, this Winter.

    He foresees a lot of Low Pressure out to our East, which suggests High Pressure to our N.W.

    Ian has recorded 14 Ground Frosts (10 of which were Air Frosts), so far this Winter, at his Weather Station at his Home in Storrington, in West Sussex.

    Unsurprisingly, he has endured a pretty wet Winter so far in West Sussex, with some more to come this Week.

    Mr. Currie still supplies Long Range Forecasts to Vineyard owners, who supply Wine to the Waitrose chain of Supermarkets.

    He also used to write a Weather Column in the Croydon Advertiser and a Gardening Magazine.

    Ian still appears on BBC Radio Surrey/Sussex, during their Gardening programme "Dig It", once a Month on a Sunday with a Weather slot.

    Regards,

    Tom. 👍

    From reading a few posts in the MOD thread , it looks great for northern blocking but there isn't any and the northern blocking is not actually blocking in the north, blocks are blocking over Spain and southern England, so actually winter is over.

    The very tip of Bedford is in amber, while i'm in yellow. 

    Just rain, boring old rain.

    However, we have had an issue with flooding in our village, so hopefully it doesn't get too bad again.

    rain is boring.

    unless it's thundering.

    Well..

    So much for the "snowier than the BFTE for many" rhetoric some were spouting on Twitter last week. The outlook for us down here snow wise is rather poor, rain & flooding on the other hand could become a growing problem with lows moving in off the Atlantic. the ground is already pretty saturated!

    Its also gone so quiet on here as well, the rivers here in mid Norfolk not really gone down since the floods at Christmas...lots of the flood plains are full so not sure where it will all go. However weather quest said the far east of the region will escape the worst of the  🌧 this week  so hopefully the rivers will cope...I reckon we we be seeing devastating news In the northwest by Friday
