    Unfortunately not enough upstream amplitude at the key time however given we’re talking day 7 onwards things could still change .

    Lets hope when the ECM spreads come out we see that to the south of the UK which would suggest some ensemble members take the shortwave on a better track .

    Of course, it's not a good wedge, but it is the first attempt by EC in a while. Perhaps a sign? I hope so.

    As i posted a few minutes ago.

    If ECM and UKMO are so different at 120z its not worth pursuing the rest of the run with any positivity

    Or negativity?

    it doesn’t take too much retrogression to keep much of the country in the cold.... is it feasible that that the nwp has things  too far to the east ??

    tbh, I don’t think it has but can’t rule it out ....

    To be honest i meant any positivity that it it is correct at all. Cold or mild. If two major models cant agree at 120 then anything after is FI

    Hi there, 

    In short no.

    Any effects of the SSW are being felt further north and much further east than the UK/Europe with most of the cold air still stuck where it has been for months. Wintry hazards appear to be marginal and predominantly favourable for those in Scotland.

    It's a waiting game in terms of whether more damage can be done to the Vortex in the next month or so to bring us a cold spell. As of right now it's more whether we can find a route to cold without the effects of an SSW - as of right now the SSW has had and looks like having zero impact on the UK at the surface. If anything the SSW has been more unhelpful for our weather as it has potentially disrupted a reasonable pattern from beforehand and increased energy in the Atlantic that wasn't there before.

    The outlook is chilly and wet this week, with snow for Scotland and the hills of Northern England, but not cold enough elsewhere. Lots of rain this week and then the chance of us drying out next week as we settle down but continue the 'cooler' theme. Sadly, zero wintry weather is in the forecast or on the horizon for most of England as we continue towards the end January.

    All in all, very typical for the UK. The disappointing winter and weather at the surface continues for those wanting something more snowy.

    I don't tbh  think anyone knows. Maybe better sniffing the dirt and looking out of the window over the next few weeks. PV tbh isn't strong but nothing severe wintry wise on the cards atm

    After the deluges incoming tomorrow and wed ot does look good for a right dumping up North, elevated NE Yorkshire and Scotland will do really well IMO...

    Esp places exposed to a North westerly..

    Possibly NWales with potential.

    Alas, being more towards the spine of the country and probably too far south means I won't see anything here I don't suppose.

    The jet is meandering and inclined to move SE ..I lm hoping we see some wedges of heights to our North in the 10 day period...

    ECM mean at T240:

    Pick the bones out of that, not that many.  Spread:

    Looks like one of the Flumps!  The uncertainty into SE Europe is welcome, I’m not sure about the upstream uncertainty, will wait for the clusters if there are any!

    You've got it.  🙂

    I think the vast majority, like myself, are searching for the next snowfall in our back gardens. It is concerning for many the next few days as you say, if it was snow the servers would have exploded

    Not to say it can't be discussed in here, but there is also a thread specifically covering the severe weather over the coming days here

    And on this side of the Pennines as well.

    if the rain amounts being talked about come off I’d imagine many of the records set on Boxing Day 2015 will be under threat.

    a worrying time for anyone in a flood prone area and made even worse by all public buildings being out of bounds due to COVID although I imagine that will soon change if evacuations are needed.

    Well you are one. Worry away.

    Rain floods and storms are pretty common in this country every year. Like last year for one.

    Snowy cold weather events are very much less common. It is much harder to get all the things to fall into place to produce memorable spell.

    Therefore for many it is much more interesting for posters to look for cold than be worrying about normal UK weather.

    For instance it is the 18th of Jan and it is already storm Christoph.

    Post away with rain totals and flood warnings.

    Others can post whatever charts interest them.
