Wed 20th of january cold air vs warm air the great battle


As the colder air comes from the east and is going to meet the Atlantic system arriving from the west will probably bring some snow showers in some parts of the east of UK
I am not even sure if its gonna reach us but there is a great potential in this "event"

so what do you think??
according to the GFS it looks like the milder air is gonna conquer Ireland but GFS isn't accurate at all when it comes to big changes imho we will see....

I think potentiality is a very strange word.

good potential for the east side of England but snow chance for us for the time being. the hope is that colder air will eventually recharge itself for another go towards the end of the month

Hmm, not sure I see much of an event here for us.
Unless perhaps possible thunderstorm activity later in the week.

Foreseeable at the moment is at best only 5 or 6 days.
If the pattern continues beyond that,it does but it will only have been foreseeable in 4 or 5 days time that it might be the case in 9 days time.

I noticed Rob Mcelwee up to a few days ago was hinting that the Beasterly would be back sooner rather than later at least thats what I thought he may have been hinting at.

Looking at todays forecast I think he may have been referring to tomorrows possible snow event for central England and the hills of wales.

Anyhow-keep watching as you won't know if it's possibly coming back from any set of charts unless it appears at sub 120hrs I would think.

The cold hasn't really left poland or Germany which is something that hasn't happened much in the last decade so thats good from a cold lovers point of view as it makes it easier for the beasterly to work here if it comes!

Tomasz Schafernaker/Aidan Power was talking about this on BBC today, but his graphic only showed warm air over Ireland. The masses will meet over the UK Midlands and may result in snowfall. So I can't see that this will have any impact on us lot over here

It won't.
Bear in mind that uk forecasters enhance their excitement in their voice when they think something will happen affecting the london area up through the UK midlands ie 20 or 30 million people.

The brief ridge of high pressure which is beginning to extend into the North Sea will have the effect of killing off the warm front before it approaches the SW coast. Essentially, we will be under an occlusion as the frontal zone passes over tomorrow with average to slightly below average maxima. Sleety snow is quite possible on higher ground to the north and east in particular, but personally it is not something I would be overly excited about. I would rather warm rain than that rubbish.

I did say a few days ago that Snow was concievable on Wednesday. It's far more likely now then just 6 hours ago with high ground in the North and East looking like getting snow above 400m atm. However the upgrades may continue over the next 24hrs.





Maxes of 3 - 5C at lower levels will be sleety rain at best.

Longer term the UKMO looks interesting indeed later toward the weekend.
