This week’s met office weather snap had a good section regarding polar vortex and the current situation.

Alex Deakin did a very good job, in my opinion, and I learnt something. Sharing here for everyone else that might want a link.

What is this ‘snow bomb’ they talk of?

I better get my candles, sledge and shovels

2” per hour is very specific

They were using a chart at +342 hr from yesterday’s GFS 00z op run and basing a news story on it. Talk about desperation!

A bit out of date I know but there is still lying snow in shaded parts from the 'surprise' snowfall of a few days ago.

Because snow of any kind is rare in these parts it was notable even if minimal in quantity. It was heavy for a time too (twenty minutes).

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dorset-64318059 

It's rare to see snow on Golden Cap as well. 

So that's two (minimal depth) snowfalls this winter but what is surprising is how long each one hung around. I think there must have been more frosts this winter too than for many winters past. Certainly made the daffs hold back  as they are not even in bud yet..

Very informative forecast by Aiden McGiven of Met Office:

If you want to know more about the Stratospheric developments he covers this at 24:45 so skip until then.

 

The effects of the Stratospheric warming NOT Sudden Stratospheric warming but significant warming and decrease in speeds of zonal winds at 10hpa over the N. Pole won't have an impact on our weather until at least middle of February, and that's even if it does!?

Facinating little article on Fen Skating, about a photographer who set out to find, photograph and document the activity.

I love quirky things like this, that date back centuries.

One for Brian.

Brian Gaze from The Weather Outlook told the Express: "Computer models are suggesting that a weakening of the Stratospheric Polar Vortex (SPV) in the coming weeks could lead to an increasing chance of cold weather during February.

FWIW last night, the residue patches of snow melted in my back garden from the recent cold spell.

Met Office update: Note now a "Small chance of easterly winds"

Sunday 5 Feb - Tuesday 14 Feb

Sunday is likely to be a widely fine day, with long sunny spells across all areas, with residual showers in the far north clearing through the morning, and with cloud and light rain in the south also clearing. Cloudier conditions may begin to develop in the far west later. Strong winds in the north at first but easing through the day. Further into the period the conditions are expected to remain settled for many at first, with the most of any wet weather likely in the far northwest. Temperatures most likely around average for most. Later, the most likely scenario is for wetter, windier and milder weather to move in from the west, however there is a small chance of easterly winds developing bringing colder weather and some snow showers.

With “temperatures closer to the seasonal normal” and “a return to overnight frosts” too. Exciting times! 😂
