  1. Thanks for the replies :). Yeah what you have all said seems to make sense, it seems the strat warming alone isn't enough to produce the goods for the UK. My knowledge on the strat isn't great lol so this a great thread to learn.
  2. So from looking at the net weather gfs strat forecast we see those red colours from the 5th februrary all the way to the 10th februrary. Surely this would have a major effect on the lower atmosphere (Troposphere.)? Would any one stick there heads out and say this would produce major blocking or an easterly late februrary/early march if these forecasts are correct?
  3. I'm happy with this mornings output, for the first 6/7 days we see small polar maritime shots from the northwest with the odd day of wintry showers/snow high ground, with days 7-12 the polar maritime shots seem to get bigger and longer lasting, with showers turning increasingly to sleet/snow in many places with the chance of some transient accumulations even to low ground. Yes this may not be the holy grail greeny high or beast from the east but many of us especially the closer to the north west you are could see some snow falling from the sky and a suprise transient snowfall. Also when you get heavy showers from the north west they can be frequent, contain thunder and lightning and when the precipitation does turn to snow you can get a couple of inches in no time due to high snowfall rates. After that I think there will be some sort of stratospheric warming (mid februrary) and we could see a good block develop with some real winter weather from the North or east. Remember even in mid march you can get some real dumpings of snow that doesn't melt too quick/if at all if there's cloud blocking the sun through the day time.  March 2013 the perfect example, we had hardly any snow melt for nearly a week! Keep the faith

    Yeah hopefully the snow will turn to sleet in new jersey and bring their accumulations to an end .   I'm sorry but I just don't know how anyone can start worrying when it's snowing like **** outside, freezing and they have over 11" on the ground. Makes the biggest moaners on here seem like optimists lol..

    American forum quite good for reports   http://www.americanwx.com/bb/index.php/topic/47720-123-24-randytastic-blizzard-obs-accums-pics/page-25

    It's the perfect storm isn't it, warm humid air from the carribean, cold arctic air from canada and moisture coming in off the atlantic, all feeding this monster storm. Makes me jealous lol.

      I'm quite jealous two, but even in the states a fair few can miss out two, Northern most parts of new york will get very little, less than 5cm  while south new york get a good 25cm+..

    Snow picking up here now
  12. And here's one for ya, funny how that amazing nov 2010 came after the volcanic eruptions and 'ash clouds' earlier on in the year, is that what it's going to take to give us a classic cold spell... 
  13. I'm not checking the models until next week they are just too depressing and going nowhere fast!
  14. If were to look for any positives the only one I can find is the models keep a core of deep cold over eastern europe and are reluctant to get rid of it, no big swath of west to east zonality sweeping right across the atlantic through russia. This is quite unusual and may be a pre-curser to something big brewing around the corner!  http://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/gfse_cartes.php?ech=6&code=code&mode=0&mode3h=0&runpara=0&carte=1 Atleast if we do get a continental feed in the coming weeks, deep cold may not be too hard to tap into.  
  15. I've heard of a lot of SSW events being forecast/expected since 2010 and I don't think we've even had one yet. Until the met office give us a big update that were all hoping for over the coming weeks I can't see anything changing. At the end of the day the met office have the most tools and expertise at there desposal not to mention a £97m supercomputer, any other forecasts are just guess work and a lot more uneducated than any met office guess.
