A new yellow warning for more snow here on Friday. With more snow then forecast for Sunday, this harsh winter spell has a way to go!

So I don’t clog up the Model thread and risk Brian throwing me off the Forum, could I suggest that if anyone still believes today's models are so useless, that you sit down with a nice mug of cocoa and watch this. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01q9d86 

It’s on BBC I player but for those who can’t/wont, there's a fuzzier link on YouTube perhaps an illegal copy who knows?

I know it’s been mentioned on TWO before and thank you to whoever mentioned it.

On ‘1963 The Big Freeze’ you can watch models and models and even synoptic charts (legal ones). Not surprisingly back then with less data to work with they still sometimes managed to get the forecasts for thaws and refreezes way out. So I’m really lost as why some people cannot see how the recent forecasts failed to predict the outcome to the recent cold spell. And that the past technologies were always more accurate than today's.

Looking likely this will be the 5th consecutive day with frost persisting on shaded north facing things - especially grass & pavements.

Indeed it's been a whilst not notable cold spell, interesting enough in that there is still snow on the ground in this part of Dorset from last weeks small fall.

Well we soon be in straw clutching territory for severe cold if the next two weeks goes according to the current charts. A winter that promised so much and delivered to some before Christmas looks like fizzling out to a "slightly better than average" kind of winter but nothing notable.

It’s been a largely good winter here so far. Mainly mild and much drier of late too. We’ve had a couple of colder weeks, but that’s to be expected in virtually every winter. Only a month of the worst season on planet earth to go and we can start using the word Spring

New York City has broken the record for the latest ever measurable snowfall.

The previous record for the latest ever snow fall was January 29th 1973.

An official snowfall must have at least 0.1 of an inch on the ground.

A little ambiguous; it means that New York City has always had a snowfall before Jan 29th
