Another one day northerly?

As far as the latest ECMWF model is concerned it’s looking like the cold northerly on Christmas Eve might be just a one day wonder, which will come as no surprise to many of the seasoned snow watchers out there, because after all 36 hours is the usual shelf life for a northerly across our sceptred Isle. There seems to be plenty of cold air following on behind though, so at least on higher ground any precipitation will fall to fall as snow. It look like at our latitude at any rate this will be how the vast majority of winters will pan out in the coming decades, with days of snow lying becoming distant memories from our childhood. Perhaps I’m being overly pessimistic this morning, which is probably due to the bad back I’ve been suffering for the last ten days or so, and who knows things might get even colder towards New Year!
