Just for fun smile

GFS had Christmas Day in sight now. Of course it's massively a long way off in forecast terms and it can't even make its mind up what is going to happen on Friday yet!

disclaimer: am only an amateur and this is my hobby. Please don't rely on it for any crucial decisions - I don't want you to get into pickles cos I got it wrong!

And now for the forecast......

<drumroll>

Latest GFS has vanished the low pressure. Cold inland, possible snow showers down the east coast. Mild in the sw!

Any possibility of snow for the south east? I am in east kent. smile

Vanished the Pest from the West, kitten ? I thought it was a dead cert that we'd be wet & mild by Friday all over the country

What about the beast from the east? grin

OhYouMerryLittleKitten Tue 11-Dec-12 07:52:00

Now GFS is going for a full on raining pouring day with temps ranging from 3c in the east to around 10c in the west. awful!

Basically, the pest wins from this weekend sad

Rather rain than snow...

Marking place to hear more. Light snow from Christmas Eve but clearing up by the 27th would be my ideal. North west.

TeWisBeenNargledByTheMistletoe Tue 11-Dec-12 07:58:24

Boo, come on snow!

TobyLerone Tue 11-Dec-12 09:13:03

It can snow now but it needs to clear up by the New Year. I'm getting married on 12th Jan and it would be awful if people stayed away because of the weather sad

Rather a blizzard in parts of Kent this morning apparently. Not here - but down the road.

I'm envy

i really really want it to snow but i doubt it will here in the NW...envy to all of those who do get snow!

Kitten, what has happened to the lovely cold weather we were supposed to have for the next two months??
AIBU to be totally depressed by the turn the forecast is taking?

OhYouMerryLittleKitten Tue 11-Dec-12 14:50:06

YANBU fatsatsuma.
I'm not quite sure what is going wrong at the moment, other than the euro high is drifting away a bit and allowing the Atlantic to move in more. I need a bit more of a brain to analyse why that is ( a bit too drifty on co-codamol just at the moment to make my brain work properly)

TeWisBeenNargledByTheMistletoe Tue 11-Dec-12 16:10:35

It is very very cold and pretty foggy here in the middle bit. Just no precip!

OhYouMerryLittleKitten Tue 11-Dec-12 16:18:33

freezing fog here. ugh.

TeWisBeenNargledByTheMistletoe Tue 11-Dec-12 16:25:50

At least we're inside!

And I saw a crane (bird!) on the roof of our house this am - it seemed very out of place in England in December.

OhYouMerryLittleKitten Tue 11-Dec-12 16:30:35

oh wow! A crane and not a stork? I'm sure that means something in Poland, but cant remember what....

TeWisBeenNargledByTheMistletoe Tue 11-Dec-12 16:32:56

I'm pretty sure! It was massive, flew off before I managed to get a picture. We are near a small wetland nature reserve.

BelleDameSousMistletoe Tue 11-Dec-12 16:37:57

Wow! We've got some herons nearby - they are huuuuuge!

OYBBK - sorry about the co-codamol requirement. Hope you are ok?

OhYouMerryLittleKitten Tue 11-Dec-12 17:32:31

Herons are funny creatures. Our neighbour once declared war on them cos of his pond and strung the whole of his garden with fishing wire. How they could walk around without being garroted I'll never know!
belledame - I'm not great, but attempting to muddle through. I shant litter this thread with moans!

mathanxiety Tue 11-Dec-12 17:39:34

Give me rain any day. Not a downpour, more a light drizzle. <fussy>

fatsatsuma Tue 11-Dec-12 17:51:48

Sorry you're having a bad time kitten. I would give you a [bunch of flowers] but I don't know how to do it on my phone.

BelleDameSousMistletoe Tue 11-Dec-12 19:26:21

I like the herons. I like crows and magpies too though. I put food down for little birds at one end of the garden and big birds at the other.

Hope you're better soon. thanks

One of my mum's favourite Christmas memories is from the Christmas when I was about 3 months old. She heard a bird commotion in the garden and discovered a huge flock of migrating waxwings feasting on cotoneaster berries. It must have been a bad year for berries in northern Europe that year.

brew and thanks Kitten..
