The Cold Spell - 24th November onwards

Post by Paul C » Tue Nov 23, 2010 5:54 pm

Thought we may have a dedicated thread just for the upcoming cold spell. I must say I wasnt expecting anything this early, so its all a bonus

Tuesday - decent day, skies have been cloudy on and off and I expect they will clear soon and the temp will fall accordingly. Will be keeping an eye on the dewpoint temp from now on, lets hope it stays below freezing, currently +1.4c at 1614hrs

Possible PPN for Cumbria on Thursday - http://www.wetterzentrale.de/pics/Rtavn544.png

And Friday ? http://www.wetterzentrale.de/pics/Rtavn724.png

Overnight Temps http://www.wetterzentrale.de/pics/Rtavn6017.png

Possibley colder over the weekend.

Edit - Met Office map added - borderline for me, as expected at this stage.

Paul - you seem to have a certain level of excitement at the thought of it. I think you need a move from your current work location, the exposure to altitude as finally got to you.

Do I need to bulk buy rations to see me through it?

Positively druelling ( hope that is spelled correctly)- just ordered a fresh set of tyres, should be fitted Friday - canned food already in my bag, the ones that heat up themselves !

Seriously though - I am not an expert just enthusiastic. ( I really cant spell can I) . But it does look promising, I certainly would get in a few extra essentials

Aye, an interesting week ahead, going to be bitter when the E'ly starts picking up.

Looking ahead next weekend models seem to indicate a more N'ly
airflow, so remaining cold. Fascinating stuff.
