Temp summary charts looking rather like the see-saw of a couple of days ago, rather than yesterday's overall improvement. Week1, warmth flirting with England and the N Sea coastal countries while cooler air extends S-wards over W Russia; week 2, W Russia warms up a bit while cooler air pushes S-wards down the N Sea. Rain - week 1 generally in a band across N Europe incl UK; week 2 mostly over C Europe (Germany to Belarus and Sweden to Balkans, E coast of UK catching the edge of this, drier in SW.
Jet fragmented around the UK to Tue 23rd, then a more definite W-ly Tue 30th becoming NW-ly before fading away.
GFS Op shows current LP off W Ireland moving N then NE to Faeroes by Mon 23rd, and sticking there, sometimes stronger, sometimes weaker, sometimes pushing a trough S-ward into UK esp Tue 24th and Sun 29th. HP then develops over Rockall, again moving around a little, but generating NE-lies for England esp noticeable Tue 31st
GEFS for the S has temps returning to norm, then warm around 23rd, the mean near norm to Sat 4th but with the Op as one of the cooler members and control as one of the warmer ones. Rain spikes tomorrow, in many ens members Tue 24th, small amounts thereafter. In the N, slightly cooler (no warm bump on 23rd) and rain more generally from Sun 21st onwards with significant amounts in NW
ECM resembles GFS except that the trough on Sun 29th is a separate development from the LP to the N, and is positioned over W Ireland
"Ground covered with snow this morning, having a great deal of snow in the night. This morning was fair but the air very cold" and "Very cold and very damp. Water overflows the ditches all round us ... Land springs about us were scarcely ever known to be so full as at present." Parson Woodforde's Diary, 13th and 17th March 1795, Norfolk
