Probably because it's one of the few things forecasters can tell with 100% assurance, for example Cork has just been hit by a massive rain event which was not forecasted by the Irish Met Office and that was in what is supposed to be a reliable time frame.

Forget Yuri's snow, it's the wrong type of rain that we need to be worrying about...

That's arsed up a few Quins' fans trips to Cardiff today, I suspect.

It snowed in Bristol today, surprisingly.

Even better news for the Scottish ski resorts, some rain on sunday. You might think it's bad news but if that's followed by more cold and snow, as it is expected, it's near perfect as it will create a icy layer for fresh snow to cover thus creating perfect conditions for snow to settle.

Plenty of uncertainty in the forecasts for next week, it more or less changes with each model run, some predicting very mild, some forecasting cold events. The temperature trend is like a rollercoaster on the next few days going from nearly 10c right down to 0 one day to the next.

Up the Highlands, amongst the snow, ice and wind, wondeful views:

Highlands

Anyhow, the main forecaster are starting to come off the fence but if a change in patterns is to occur (leading likely to colder, more stable weather) it's for next week-end. With the tasty possibility of some reet cold blast from the north...

Grim, grim outlook at the moment, if you are a model/ensemble watcher, it's nothing but mild zonality, weather system after weather system with only signs of something burried deep in la-la land 300 hours from now. Certainly for the South, don't expect much else than rain, wind and unseasonal temperatures. Up north, it's a bit better but not much.

The last bet for some winter action is the impending rise in the stratosphere temperature after some record breaking cool temperatures (not good, CFC is causing this) which will affect the Polar Vortex and therefore augment our chances of getting some cold air from the Arctic but that won't be before mid-february. Snow at Easter might be a safer bet than at Christmas this year...

Oh, for those in Scotland, brace yourselves indeed, some very nasty winds coming your way for this evening.

It's been 3 degrees and raining for a week now. All the ice has melted on the lakes. There is no snow anywhere. This is a fucking horrible winter.

It's much more wintry here than it was last year. Ground is still thick with snow, temperatures haven't been above zero for well over a month. It's been dead foggy though, but that's because we're in a depression - we're off skiing this weekend, and usually once you climb out of the basin it turns out to be gloriously sunny.

Winter has been a catastrophy in the Nordic countries, some areas are currently 10c above averages. However it's colder in the southern part of the continent all the way to the Middle-East.

Scotland is really another country, whilst the south of the UK and even northern England are sweating in record mild temperatures, they are preparing for a massive dump of snow on monday and monday night temperatures of -10c. Suffice to say that you better be careful if you drive in the affected areas...

A possible northern current trend rearing its head in the models for the end of the month, let's wait and see...

What Bomb A Nero and Croute said.

I long for a proper winter.

Went walking around Shinning Tor this morning and what a pleasure to see frozen poodles and even a few icicles clinging to the heather by the road. Beautiful colors in the sky and nice coldish day which makes walking all the more enjoyable.

It really, really looks like the awful mild and wet Atlantic weather is buggering off at the end of this week to be replaced by dry conditions and HP cells blocking around the country however, whilst in the South you can put away your jumpers, up here in the North, we will have seasonnal temperatures. With clear skies, inversion will take place and our mornings ought to be nice and frosty.

You cruel dog hating bastard

In other weather related news, the temperature has shot through the roof this week, reaching the giddy (and balmy) heights of 11 yesterday. I was imagining a 30-40 degree temperature swing when I go to Dubai tomorrow, but instead the temperature there yesterday (at night admittedly) was 9.

What is the world coming to?

If some of the models currently being churned out turn out to be true for early february, you might need one of these to move around:

My God, if those charts coming out tonight can hold steady, get ready for some major snow action next friday, particularly up north with Scotland taking the brunt of it. Consensus across the board on the ECM and GFS models. The mild temperatures should start to dip from tuesday onwards.

<kneels and pray>
