Cooler weather highlighted in midday run
Jet stream sinking south

By Simon Keeling in Wombourne, Staffs 22:20hrs  05/01/2012
Temperature: 6.3C    Weather: Recent rain


The 12Z run of the GFS model is highlighting the jet stream slipping southwards from Sunday 15th.

This puts it over the south of the UK/northern France, placing the UK on the colder side of the jet and reducing temperatures.

It's not a huge freeze but is enough to lower temperatures sufficiently for snow to fall in Scotland and perhaps at times in showers over northern England and Wales.

A most of northern Europe (UK, Ireland and Scandinavia) will be into these cooler conditions with heavy snow at times through Scandinavia, and perhaps parts of northern Germany and Poland.

Severe gales at times in northern France, the Low Countries and Germany, perhaps even southern England.

I'm not jumping for joy at my forecast being vindicated just yet, but it is good to see models falling inline, although this is only the GFS for the moment.
