    Lots of chat on NetWeather forums about a SSW and the possible onset of the “Beast From The East”. Even some of the more reasoned posters are getting excited about this.

    Saying this is the most extreme splitting/warming of stratosphere in last 40 odd years. The warming is meant to be happening over the next few days, but the models are struggling to know exactly what the impact will be. The main effect is the reversal of the prevailing winds from SW to Easterlies.

    Well, that’s what I’ve picked up anyway - could be a load of b*llocks
    If it happens, it is far too late now

      It is, we are talking late feb / early mar, that is too late as the sun is much warmer, average temps are 9-10 c, so a cold day with be considered 5 c, the window of opportunity for cold days around freezing or just above and lying snow is mid dec - mid feb

      Er, what you posted is crap. The reason we’re so mild is the direction of the prevailing winds; i.e. SW. This makes our climate more temperate then equivalent places at the same latitude.

      So, if we get a SSW and this does (big if) change the prevailing wind direction to an easterly and we get cold winds blowing from Siberia, even in Feb/Mar this can lead to very extreme conditions.

      The last time we had these conditions in late feb was 30 years ago. We will not see day temps max of lower than 5 c late feb / early mar, no chance

      I had to sleep on the A23 because of the snow on 11th March 2013. That was pretty cold.

      We all know this will come to nothing. We have had 8 years of this thread and it has been 99% of charts and fantasy's which always, always turn out to be nonsense

      Must have been cold lying on that tarmac, and pretty dangerous too. Which lane were you lying in ?

      You must wonder why you keep coming back to it.

      I know everyone else does.

      I think your role as pantomime villain adds a lot to this thread. Keep it up.
