  1. I've just landed at Stansted. There's still a lot of snow piled up at the side of the runway. Still some patches on the way to London too (currently at Harlow). You can blame me for the change in weather pattern. It was always going to take place when I arrived.
  2. Just checked recent weather data for Vancouver Airport and there hasn't been a frost since 7th November (https://www.wunderground.com/history/airport/CYVR/2017/11/4/MonthlyHistory.html?req_city=&req_state=&req_statename=&reqdb.zip=&reqdb.magic=&reqdb.wmo=), so I very much doubt they've had lying snow there since then. High mountains come very close to the coast in the Pacific Northwest, so I think the snow map is giving the false impression that there is snow right on the coast when there isn't.

  7. First major dumping of the season here yesterday. Got about 10cm. Should last until at least Monday.
  8. It depends. If you're talking about the difference between a 400m hillside and a 300m valley you're probably right, but comparing a 400m hillside with sub-100m lowlands? I'm not so sure. Alston itself is in a valley anyway - that of the South Tyne - but it's "only" at 300m (I'm guessing Ian lives somewhere nearby like Nenthead, which is arguably the snowiest settlement in England). Even so I imagine October frosts are more common there than in the Eden Valley.
  9. Not in most places but it's certainly not unusual at 400m in the North Pennines. Or at least it shouldn't be.
  10. A question about snow in November's 2004 and 2005

    18th November 2004 was a nice surprise snowfall in Sheffield. It had been a fairly mild day (I was in a T-shirt) but the evening saw a cold plunge and rain turning rapidly to snow. We ended up with about six inches that night, which stuck around for a couple of days. There was an official depth of 18cm in Hathersage seven miles away
  11. February 2005 - return of the easterly!

    An excellent wintry spell on the edge of the Pennines in West Sheffield, peaking with heavy snowfall on the 22nd/23rd. Must have had about a foot at that point, and it took ages to thaw (there were patches into mid-March).
  12. I make it the last four years the UK has had significantly above-average temperatures at Halloween. It's a bit too early to be expecting wintriness (though it can happen) but there should at least be a chill in the air.
  13. Hurricane Ophelia

    Amazing to see a Category 2 hurricane only 500 miles west of Lisbon. I have no doubt this thing would have remained tropical had it hit the Iberian Peninsula. The Azores and Madeira have dodged a bullet too, the former escaping a major-hurricane hit.
  14. Where has all 4 seasons?

    Winter there looks epic but the sunshine hours in summer are pretty naff. Close but no cigar. New England is the best candidate for me, as summers are indeed thundery (and sunny to boot). No idea about autumn storms though. Bratislava might qualify if you make the winters a bit colder and wetter.
