Funny that…

Here is my analysis cum nephanalysis of the plotted chart for 10 UTC this morning. The snow across the high ground of Scotland is still clearly visible in the satellite image. I can now see why the UKMO thought they had to issue a knee-jerk warning for snow this morning for northern England, but they never thought to bother issuing one for the snow across parts of Scotland overnight – funny that. Some shifts can be quite keen others just can’t be bothered and ignore it hoping that it will disappear. It may have something to do with some kind of internal league table they run on severe warning verification scores, perhaps they get more points for the the greatest lead time they dare to issue an accurate warning for? Either that or its just plain Scotia Myopia.
