    A freezing day today (max. -0.3C) owing to a fair bit of cloud to the south dimming the sun here.  Beautiful day after a film of snow came down last night.  The ground is rock hard now (too late!).  A local path by a busy road has this on the railings where a broken drain pours water down the road.

    woke up this morning surprised to see quite a covering of snow over snow melt from yesterday, very cold but beautiful sunshine for most of today. Main local roads very good but side roads still ice and slush so with tonights very low temps forecast there will be a lot of frozen side roads in the morning .

    So bbc (ECM) is showing precipitation on Sunday but all rain (at about 3 degrees) - do any of the other models have this breakdown of the cold - ideally with snow?!

    A mostly sunny day with only a few patches of cumulus drifting through during the afternoon. Again the temperature just scraped above freezing.

    Another very cold night coming up with only a little high cloud to offer resistance. Widely down to -4/5c

    Well a slow thaw set in earlier today where and when the sun broke through. Still a good covering though on the south west facing back garden as the attached picture shows, fifth day of lying snow and bitterly cold now as the sun sets. Been a memorable snow event here but be pleased to feel some warmth from the weekend and begin the next chase.

    Some high level cloud appears to be creeping in. May stop the temps getting as low as they could.

    Beautiful end to a stunning winters day. 5cm of overnight snow and temp only rose to 0.1c at 2pm. Have really enjoyed this spell reminded me of the normal winters we used to get in the 1980s discarding 1987 of course which was a totally different beast

    when i first joined NW from BBC Snow watch i remember a few years of steady day/night 10C winters. never thought i would see winter again to be honest. so apart from the odd 'real' winter from then to now i am so pleased to see snow falling again. frost on cars at 1700 and hear the crunch of ice as people walk past the house where there is still snow on the pavement. halcyon days maybe, but given the doom and gloom portrayed in climate change theories i will take this winter period as a blessing 🙂

    Everyone ready for round 2? 😉

    Obviously just for fun at this stage, but the models tonight are just beginning to show what the Met Office forecasts have been saying for the weekend commencing 20th February. Cooling down with a return of easterly winds!

    Evening all,

    Would again, like to post up a couple of clips of Forecasts, from MeteoGroup and the Met Office.

    The first from Private Forecasting Organisation, MeteoGroup, courtesy of Darren Bett.

    Weather for the Week Ahead - BBC Weather

    Below, is the Weekend Forecast from the Met Office, with Aidan McGivern:

    Those Members, like myself, looking for one "last hurrah" from Winter, should be encouraged by the 12z runs from the European Models.

    The UKMO 12z Chart for Day 6 (17th Feb), is not a bad place to be at. Strong, positive heights, over E.Scandinavia, and signs of disruption to that deep Atlantic Low:

    The ECM 12z run, singing from the same hymn sheet, at Day 6 (17th Feb), with a deep cold pool, starting to edge into Eastern Europe.

    Evening everyone, hope you are all doing well. I was wondering if anyone uses this, as I personally think it looks really good, especially with the 500m resolution! and really high scale! I imagine it's good for convective weather monitoring in the summer.

    loving the Met O forecast for the next week or so 

    Quote

    Into late February there is a signal for higher than average pressure to expand westwards leading to an increased chance of snow showers redeveloping in the east, for conditions in the north to become generally quite settled and for unsettled weather in the south, with disruptive snow possible. A similar picture continues into March, though milder conditions in the west look more likely to spread northwards.

    seems the end of the month (25th onwards) may give us here in the southern areas another bite at the cherry 😄

    I noticed earlier to my south Cirrus clouds yet to my north cumulus. as a complete amatuer, it seems the weather is on a change and the cloud exemplifies that change. So i will stick with the Met O on it's current short term forecast and wait for the FI predictions that we may see a reboot of the last few days in a weeks time 😄

    Can't say we've been amazingly lucky streamer-wise here in Bexhill... Sunday gave a decent covering at least from that stalled feature, and we had a few showers on Monday and yesterday evening. Most settled was around 2/3cm I'd say. Not as much as 2018, but I'm grateful I've seen some falling!
