What I'm Watching

What I'm Watching

Update on Sundays snow.

My weather station is showing our air pressure is now falling sharply and my weather station is indicating snow. There is little change in the model runs over the last couple of days so I don't expect any major changes in the 18:00 hr model run when I receive it around 22;00. At the moment the radar is just showing the...

Update for possible heavy snow on Sunday 10th December.

I have been talking about a risk of significant snow fall on Sunday 10th for a few days now. The risk at the moment looks high but this is subject to change. This is due to warm very moist air to the West of the UK and this is moving eastwards. At this time it looks like the cold...

Last update for the end of this weeks wintry weather before my real forecasts begin.

This is my final update for the end of this weeks wintry weather. I then hope to start bringing you forecasts for this period from Wednesday evening. Forecasting snow for the UK is difficult especially when the coverage area is borderline. So at the moment, the low pressure system moving towards the North of Scotland has now been named by...

Wintry weather update for the end of this week.

The wintry weather still looks like it will start towards the end of this working week. I first started to talk about this wintry weather over a week ago. It's changed from severe snow, to a chance of some wintry showers, but all along the cold theme has stayed with us it will be Wednesday evening before I can...

Update on winter weather at the end of the week.

There has been some changes since my last update. The high pressure blocking looks like it will continue to be in place but it doesn't look like a secondary low pressure system will develop. The models thought this secondary low pressure system would have brought us some heavy snow. So at the moment we still see cold air moving over...

GFS Models is really ramping up on heavy snow the end of next week, but will it happen !

I thought I would update you on the risk of snow the end of next week. Yesterday the models changed their mind for snow the end of next week. But again today they are really going for snow around Thursday, Friday next week. If this does come off we are talking heavy snow and blizzard conditions. A deep low pressure...

If there is no change then next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday is looking wintry.

I have indicated for several days now that we could see some wintry weather during early December. Well if there is no change in the models then it will turn wintry Wednesday, Thursday and Friday next week. The GFS modelĀ is showing snow fall during these day. Temperatures are set to rise during Sunday and into the start of the new working...

First two weeks of December will still feel fairly cold with a risk of some wintry conditions.

Well the colder temperatures are nearly with us starting from tomorrow lasting into Friday. Thursday will see temperatures struggling to reach 3 centigrade by daytime with temperature around -2 over night. I see little risk of any snow even though it will be cold. Snow will be mainly confined around the East coast, with just the odd shower blowing...

Turning cold from the middle of the week.

Temperatures are still set to fall cold later this week. Cold air will start to move down from the North towards the South during Tuesday. By Thursday we will have temperatures at 5,000 feet around -7 c. This means temperatures will struggle to reach 3 degrees by day and night times falling to around -2 c. There may be a few...

Its’s a no show for the snow but it will still be cold.

The idea of snow this weekend is now a no show for snow. The original idea of a low pressures system moving up the East coast now looks like it will be moving South towards France then on to Germany. Any snow this weekend will be confined to Scotland and the North West coast. Temperature are still set to fall cold,...
