  1. A blocking high in autumn is a big yes from me Sadly most people always see autumn as wind and rain, but personally I always see it as the Keatsian season of mists and mellow fruitfulness The wind and rain can be kept for the business end of the seaosn... November... Along with the first proper fogs as well. If its gonna be grey, then let it be foggy, as it least the fog is atmospheric

  2. The QBO Westerly Phase seems, on the whole to have ended and along with Lá Nina in the equatorial Pacific this would point to a colder winter over Britain, other things being equal. However, it really is too early to even make a stab at predicting what the winter will be from six months out as any number of the variables upon which one bases the predictions can change a lot in a month let alone the next six! A massive Mid-Ocean Ridge volcanic eruption in the North Atlantic south of Iceland could pump so much lava out that it warms the entire area of the North Atlantic by 2 to 3C or a series of

  3. We are, it seems, well over the active phase of Schwabe Cycle 24 (current sunspot cycle) and it seems that the westerly-wind phase of the Quasi Biennial Oscillation has come to an end. Easterlies now dominate a large part of the stratosphere over the Equator (see here): http://www.geo.fu-berlin.de/en/met/ag/strat/produkte/qbo/ These factors point more towards a drier early autumn period over much of Britain, particularly given colder-than-usual waters in the mid NE Atlantic and the exceptionally-retreated extent of Arctic Ice. Colder than normal seas west of Britain encourage anticyclonic

  4. Ok... I hope nobody minds me doing this (please accept my apologies if you do), but being as I've just been thinking about the autumn that we had back in 2012 (and getting all misty and dewy eyed in the process), I've just dug out some of the photos that I took back in autumn 2012. Autumn 2012 gave us an absolutely stunning display of autumn colours here in Wales, along with sunny days, and a few misty ones as well And hopefully these photos will give people an idea of whey personally I've love to see a repeat of autumn that year I should also point out that none of these photos have b

  6. I see that Gavs Weather Vids have done another part towards the autumn 2016 forecast - Autumn 2016 Analogues (Part One) http://www.gavsweathervids.com/ So far, and after viewing this I'd say toss a coin and shout heads and tails as to eventual outcome... But Gavin appears to be starting to side with the idea of high(er) pressure dominating this coming autumn... Fine by me

  7. There is no arguing with the fact that most people like trees, but what many often forget is that beyond just “liking” trees, we need them to survive. Trees provide us with a large portion of the oxygen we breathe, help regulate climate, and provide homes and shelters for countless animal species that we, frankly, need to keep the global ecosystem in balance. Unfortunately, deforestation and clear-cutting ancient forests has become a norm across the world. We’ve grown to prioritize industrial expansion and the production of livestock and palm oil over our vital forests and we are suffering the

  9. Autumn rarely seems to get going until late September recently, with the first part of Sept delivering on average our most settled conditions of the year it seems, with temps in the high teens and lots of sunny dry weather, its for this reason I don't tend to start thinking about it until later on in August. Would like a cold settled end to the season, something which has eluded these parts in recent years, indeed the last 3 autumns have seen very wet very stormy ends to autumn, only 2010 and 2012 have delivered colder quieter conditions. Would like an autumn like 2008, 2010 and 2012, which we

I've always said that the light in September/October is like no other time of year... I'm getting all misty and dewy eyed thinking about it Lets hope autumn 2016 can deliver where this sad excuse for a summer has failed

  20. Where I live near Nenthead, high up in the North Pennines, we used to get air frosts in August. The last time that happened was in 1999! Certainly frost used to be more frequent (and more severe) in autumns gone by. I have recorded -3C in late September in 1995 and in October I have recorded -8C (in 1983 and 1993). However in the last 13 years I have recorded nothing below -3C in October and there have been seasons where not a single air-frost has occurred until November. That would have been unthinkable at over 400 metres up in the North Pennines at one time. We also used to have early s

  28. I am really sorry to hear you have decided to suspend the serious discussion forum. As a avid user and poster I feel it should be re-instated and those not treating the discussion with respect should be removed. The few many should not suffer for the many. As for forum and its use, yes its primarily for weather related matters, but it has grown to be much more. Please reinstate this forum discussion. Thank you Clive

  35. 1. The reasoning behind the massive fall in relative terms of scotlands population would need a thread in itself to explain all the socio economic/political reasons behind it. Lets just say it is no coincidence the three european nations that had massive relative falls in their historical populations were ruled by their neighbours , one being scotland , in which the twenty year period alone between 1979-1999 suffered a massive emigration crises where a fifth of the population were forced to leave their home when a de facto english conservative government in london had my country on its knees.

  36. Wow , too deep for me on a saturday afternoon. Taken at face value , and what is very very apparent is the fact that no amount of crying over spilt milk will change the fact scotland , by a democratic majority voted to remain in the eu whilst england by a democratic majority voted to leave.( whatever that reason(s) may be?!) What is coming across to me on this thread is that there appears to be a lot of angry anglo saxons coming on this thread and i wonder why the sudden interest in scottish politics? Could it possibly be the inescapable fact that instead of celebrating "victor

Can i ask what this post is meant to show except how bad in terms of population , the united kingdom has been for the celtic countries? 200 years ago there was 14 million in these island evenly split between england (7 million) and the celts (7 million) Now , including the republic of ireland , there is just under 68 million people , of which 53 million reside in england alone. So shock horror , when you point out there is nearly ten times the amount of people that voted remain in england and wales to that of scotland , i say aye , the union has been terrible for our people that
