Yes please!  We had snow on Sunday night and again last night leaving a thin covering (about an inch?).

Pretty slim Id say except skirting East coast. Though does have a wider western tail, presumably lost over the mountains as sinks south. Lets watch the blob south of Inverness and see where it goes/what it does

BBC News reporting ‘coldest night of the year’ last night… is that the case?  I thought last spell was much colder.

Coldest night of this year (2023) is where I suspect they are coming from. I can definitely confirm we had a minus 9 (maybe lower) here during the December 2022 spell 🙂

Of course! I didn’t think of that.  Low bar to set though after only 3 weeks

Question: should this storm have been named?

The Met Office criteria state: “A storm will be named when it has the potential to cause an amber or red warning.”

Is a storm or polar low? See your point though 🤔

uninspiring BBC extended weather for the week.  At least nothing wild.  Grey and boring for most

who’s made way for the new female BBC weather presenter who seems to have been on 80% of BBC News broadcasts for past 48hrs?  Maybe Shafernaker been given the bullet again

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A bit out of date I know but there is still lying snow in shaded parts from the 'surprise' snowfall of a few days ago.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