    Yay we're back!!

    Anyone care to guess what our prospects are for next week? :whistling:

    Did the Netweather server go down? We did say that the SE possie would be in town, so the servers need looking after :lol:

    For starters, we may have snow on Monday :yahoo::clap:

    Monday, that would be cool as I am not expecting any until Wed / Thu.

    Just been watching the videos on CNN of the US East coasr blizzard. That system is heading East towards us, is this the system that is forecast to hit the south coast next weekend?

    I have just been looking at the precipitation type charts for next weekend. Oh if only that could come off!!!:whistling:

    Been too disappointed in the past though to get too hopeful yet. I usually find they show lots of lovely snow and then three days before it is due to arrive it all goes pear shaped.:yahoo:

    Still, I for one am hopeful as we do often seem to follow America's weather a week or so later.

    The Met Office forecast for my area has no precipitation at all for the next week whereas Netweather has a high percentage possibility for snow...confused. :whistling:

    Go with Netweather every time.

    I have always found them the most reliable of any forecast I have looked at on the net. beats METO hands down.

    New thread for you :)

    Will be deleting the old thread shortly as there's a technical problem with it..

    Paul, We seem to start from 'Part 1 of 1' ?? Not sure why as we were in the 50's. Could you do the honours as the SE crew have been looking towards the 100 mark. :hi:

    Yes the Met Office is showing hardly any snow in the SE next week but I would hope they will update that by the morning. Hopefully we will start seeing some wintryness maybe snow vy tomorrow evening, not just rain which is showing on the NAE output, -8hpa air with 0c dewpoint equals snow in my book.

    Snow ray, I really wouldn't bother with the Met office forecasts, I find them extremely inaccurate.

    The met office will never get it right when their models are based using co2 and global warming.

    maybe in another 50 years when it has not happened then they may be able to get it right.rolleyes.gif

    Hi all.

    I think win win pretty much sums up the outlook for the southeast at the moment. Sadly everywhere north and west needs a lot more luck with both uppers and precipitation, especially as the week progresses. And don't bother with Met Office forecasts from the website for any kind of north sea convection - generally they tend to underestimate these hugely from experience.

    Night!

    Just had a thought.... Everything in the Atlantic is currently stuck all those fronts are stalled at the moment, does it mean they will sit there waiting till the easterly goes ? Or will they head away from us. Or are they what everyones talking about ie; next weekends snow event ?

    Help me out .......

    I believe what happens is they head SE and pass to the South of us. The ones that pass close though will hit the colder air and give us snow.

    That's my understanding of the jet being further south and blocking to the north.

    Lately our winters have not had a block and the jet across us so the weather systems from the atlantic travel across the north of us givung us rainy and windy weather instead.

    Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

    Mainly dry with bright or sunny spells in the west, but cloudier with sleet or snow showers in the east. Significant snow accumulations possible locally. Cold, frosty and winds easing.

    Possibility of a little snow come tomorrow morning for our area.

    (This forecaster obviously illustrated the "titles" for "Dads Army", in his previous job.) :rolleyes:

    Anyway 06z GFS shows the potential.

    Temps. perhaps a bit marginal but higher parts could well see a dusting during the day tomorrow.

    Plenty of potential for snowfall as well as the week progresses.

    Regards,

    Tom.
