Yep could be interesting for Sunday but may be on the marginal side in the South east, but lets see :unknw:

Highly unlikely, GFS shows max temps of 5-6C (frost on Monday morning) with rain moving in late in the day. :)

A rather bland week of weather to be honest, it looks cloudy and relatively mild until the weekend before some fresher weather moves in. Might be it for snow during February as the models generally show the Atlantic gearing up. Though March and April can certainly bring wintry suprises!

Out of interest, these are some statistics for my location of the recent cold spell: ( from around the 29th Jan up until the 12th Feb)

Maximum temperature recorded: 3.6C

Minimum temperature recorded: -14.4C

Lowest daytime maxima: -3.2C

Days of snow falling: 2

Days of snow lying: 8 (Met office 'snow days'- all consecutive)

Biggest snow depth observed: 13cm (c.5.2") - though there were some drifts of over 1'.

Highest barometric reading: 1045.5mb

Quite an impressive cold spell for this part of the country, especially in the 'snow lying' days category as they were all consecutive. Going off recent cold spells, that's better than January 2010, December 2010 and December 2009 which all had around 5-6 snow lying consecutive days before a major thaw ensued. While there was a thaw in the middle of this cold spell, snow cover was retained when colder temperatures returned. This cold spell certainly provided more snow than last winter for my location (only 3cm fell here last winter, though I do realise that other locations did have quite a bit of snow in December 2010).

Another feature was the spread of the snowfall, all locations joined in during the snow event on the 4th, which hasn't happened in recent winters!

Wouldn't mind a repeat of this cold spell in winters to come! :)

Despite some 'end of winter' comments knocking around (not seemingly in this thread) there is plenty of potential for surprises some even before the month is out.. an east ish influence may not have finished with us yet - see below:

Yes I know its in fantacy island (FI) territory but I love the way the models this time of year throw up all sorts of interesting scenarios. The above may come sooner or later but definitely still worth watching for winter interest.

Glass half full me :D

I'm not sure my footwear is going to be suitable then if the yellow brick road is going to be icy ......

....I might have to reconsider my entire wardrobe now :rolleyes:

Good morning anyway everyone,

It looks like a chilly day to come on Sunday and then look to the end of the month when maybe the wicked witch from the east will deliver something, who knows :angel:

Another bland day weatherwise though relatively mild, max of 9.6C. Our first proper taste of spring could occur next week, with temperatures getting up to 12-13C around mid-week!

I must admit though I'm getting rather concerned about the lack of rainfall. This is the best time of year to re-fill reservoirs, lakes etc because of weak sun strength. This year so far has been a re-run of last year in terms of lack of rainfall! Unless we get a wet spring then I suspect there will be water restrictions imposed in the summer.

In my case it's fieldfares… every time we're about to get some cold weather especially a northern blast, I see flocks of them. Just getting the logs in this evening and a whole flock flew away from some trees. It never fails.

Ok so the weather models are having a wobble with cold atm and I'm like the brave (foolish) knight in Monty Pythons Holy Grail, fought in the woods..

'ok so you've chopped my limbs off but I can still bite your ankles, come back winters not finished yet !'

Some tumble weed, a few straws and surprises and I'm happy...trouble is there's only a cold blip at the weekend then it's 'flat lining' into March:

:cray:

I'm off to Scotland for a few days.. (-:

Looks that way....

I think we are officially the most boring quietest regional thread, maybe it's time to get creative with the tumble weed ....

LOL.. If it's just us on here MK will the big switch on the wall be pulled to shut down the south east? Shame as I hear the weather sill exists despite the sound of pins dropping from the sky.

Still chances of surprises from developments into March - I love this time of year - the weather's a little more volatile - interesting...

Let us know when you decide to turn the lights out here then :cray:
