One for Jim/Nobby. Seeing as all the press has gone with the Day After Tomorrow scenario and we're getting the beast from the east, 500ft snowdrifts and all going to freeze in our beds, whats the actual outlook for the next few days?

As usual, the media are embarrassing themselves over the possibility of a few chilly days and some possible snow.

'Beast From The East' nonsense, completely disregarding the fact this weather will be coming from the north. I suppose they couldn't find a catchy enough rhyme for that.  ::)

Look at the media and it's end of days. Look at the actual weather forecast and it will be a bit colder next week for a few days. Above freezing with maybe sleet or some snow for some places.

No doubt they'll all focus on scenes from high ground and then make out the entire country is buried under 10ft drifts.

It's pathetic isn't it. The whole point of the weather forecast is to give us an idea of what weather we are likely to get, not what will never happen. They'll be putting them in their Canada Goose coats and sending them to Aviemore to report on the blizzards.....

This country is going to the fucking dogs with the idiots being brought up :no

Watched the Day after Tomorrow a couple of weeks ago so that's me prepared. Although which book to burn last could keep me awake. Still at least the toilet roll number will see us through.

Yep. Utterly, depressingly pathetic. Everything, even the damn weather, has to be hyped up and sensationalised.

I get sick of seeing end of days headlines, only to then look at a credible forecast which says nothing of the sort.  :butt

Spot on, I checked the met office yesterday. Likely snow over Scottish hills. Doom laden weather reporting is just another source of clickbait these days. Pathetic.

Well, we have a blizzard, minus 15 windchill and 55kmh winds this weekend. Next week I'm going to my old haunt of Skellefteċ for the weekend. Minus 20 there. Doubtless the UK media will try to make out you have it worse 🤔😅

It's unlikely that the snowmageddon scenarios in some of the print media will come off for the vast majority of people.

Initially colder with snow showers possible anywhere from Monday night. Likely heavy and prolonged in much of Scotland.

There's some consistent modelling of a low pressure moving west to east across the southern half of the UK on Wed/Thur. This looks probable to have a very active front ahead of it. If that happens, areas just to the north of the centre of the low will see a period of heavy snow, as the cold flow from the north interacts with the front. The latest output chart puts the heaviest snow across the Midlands/Wales:





The exact path of the low is still not clear, though, and different models/runs are showing differences. Even 50 or 100 miles (nothing in a global meteorological sense) will make a major difference locally (100 miles could cover dry/light snow to snow to sleet/rain). Subsequent model output might lessen the feature to very little. Or it may push the low further north and allow the milder air to get further north.

After that, another feature is being modelled to move more on a WSW to ENE line, and on a path tracking further north over the UK. This again forecast to have snow on its leading/northern boundary as it runs into the colder air.



But it does pull even milder air in behind, so any frontal snow would fairly quickly turn to rain:




After that low, the flow becomes rather slack with neither high nor low pressure covering us. Scotland continues in the cold air, though, so all the snow showers and more frontal snow will continue to accumulate. Some of the depths being modelled are impressive:




That's just one run from one model, and there's a lot of uncertainty.


I think most places will see some snow falling. Where gets the heaviest is still undecided. We should know more detail by the end of the weekend.

For interest, this is the latest run from a different model, around the same Thursday timeframe:

Early morning run round the park this morning was punishing, absolutely freezing.
But by 8.30 my solar butterflies were spinning in the slight warmth of the low sun.

Reckon I'll try to make the most of the sunshine today. No way I want to go far if it's cold, wet and snowy. Thank goodness the temperature is set to hit double figures by Sunday. At least it wont last long, even if the temperature dips again.

Been a fabulous warm sunny day here today.  Lambs being born, snow on Eryri, spent the day in the garden then for a walk to the beach.

Around Lark Lane it seems that any flower that wasn't a daffodil has been killed by the cold snap. I hope they have fared better elsewhere. :(

At least the temperatures look a lot more respectable for the time of year in the coming weeks, even though it's going to carry on pissing down.

Great weather here today in Manchester. My thermometer is reading 17 degrees. Off for a 50 mile bike ride at 2pm - heading to Jodrell Bank and looping round home via Alderley Edge. Looks like the rain is due at 6pm so it'll be good to get out in the gap.

We're currently enjoying our 2nd False Spring. We usually get about four of these, interspersed with lots of sleet, snow, ice, freezing rain, thaw, repeat - until BANG one day it's summer. Weird place this.
