  1. By that reckoning, it's currently on around -1.8; and is expected to slowly rise. For reference (thanks to BFTV), winter OPI's between -1 and -2 are 76/77, 78/79, 82/83, 84/85, 85/86, 86/87, 12/13; so it wouldn't be a bad point to be at one bit (of course it's one part of the jigsaw as Tamara, Chiono, SM etc allude to above).
  2. Threads like this are brilliant, cheers Riccardo, Chiono, Steve, LS, BFTV and more, brilliant input, and all of a sudden October is as exciting as Christmas!

    Was August really that cool, or September just stupidly mild?

    September 2014 CET forecasts

    I don't have a clue. 14c seems normal enough. 14c.

    Cold nightime minima in August

    Dropped down to 3c last night; coldest August night since 2010, and the coldest night since May. Real shame that it's mild, drizzly and moist weather for the next week.
  6. Lovely weather; mostly days with sunshine and highs in the mid-teens, and lows between 6-8c. Tonight looks really nippy as well, touch of frost in isolated glens?
  7. 8c... you can smell the Eastenders christmas special in the air

      I wonder who they are going to kill off this year! Hopefully they will kill off Eastenders altogether! 10.7c here!

  8. 9 consecutive above average months here at Durham... imagine the reaction if there were 9 cooler ones! Acclimatised to the abnormal warmth

    1. Styx


      8 month run in hobart, august may go the other way. i defiently appreciate what you mean about being acclimatised to anomalous warmth

    2. gottolovethisweather


      There were 13 consecutive months below average from May 2012 to May 2013 as I recall so yes anything is possible I suspect. August 2014 is looking likely to be well below average for some. I'm registering 1.5c below the 1981-2010 mean as things stand. Nothing is predictable any more if truth be told.

      So to answer Isolated Frost, I wouldn't rule out that particular prospect but then again it may well not happen either. I think the certainty that another extreme month for one whichever reason be it rainfall, dryness, temperature is on the cards before the year is out, all IMHO. Afterall we appear to be world of weather extremes right now.

  9. as a SAFC fan, this Borini deal reminds me of endless model watching in winter... and ultimately disappointment; no matter how nailed on it looked at one point :(

    2014 / 2015 Premier League Discussion

    Rodwell for £10 mil or thereabouts, very encouraging- just need 4 more signings; Borini (12-15mil) van Dijk (8 mil) Alonso (5 mil) Vergini (?) for a great unit
  11. March: 10-15c high, -5c-0c low, mostly clear skies, some snow, some showers. April: 15-20c high, 0c low, mostly clear again, less snow, increasing heat. May: 20-25c high, 0-10c low, mostly hot by day, cold by night, some t-storms/showers. June: 25-30c high, 5-15c low, very hot most days, cooler by the evening. July: 25-35c high, 10-15c low, hot and dry days and warm evenings. August: 20-30c high, 10-15c low, hot still, but increasingly humid/erratic, plenty of t-storms/storms. September: 15-25c high, 5-15c low, increasingly cool, plenty of rain/wind/storms/t-storms with a few sunny days. October: 5-15c high, -5c-0c low, increasingly cold, first snows, plenty of storms/wind. November-December: very cold, increasingly sub-zero highs, ice days, heavy snow/storms, little sun. January-February: still cold, though in Feb less so, increasing sun. Basically anything with plenty of snow/cold/storms between September and January; and hot and sunny between May and August. And a fair few t-storms throughout the year.
  12. was 20c at NCL an hour ago, 15c with t-storms and rain now, come on Autumn?

  13. It gets fun now, long live the darkness

    early autumn in nature this year?

    It's boiling is all I know here, but definitely seeing signs as shown above. Remember though, reactive, not proactive!
  15. 22c at 11am, sun out, lovely river view, no breeze... in an office!

  16. 22c at Durham for 1300; hopefully we can hit 25c sometime (someday, far away); lovely though.

    Summer 2014 thread

    What a lovely day, warm, slight breeze; too much cloud cover up here though. Still hoping for one big Summer blast where we can actually get a 30c here on the Wear, I don't think they make them anymore. Arthur Scargill will have reclaimed Labour by the time we get 30 here.
  18. when we looking for that first sub -5c 850 air then?

    1. karyo


      Do you mean over us or appearing on the model maps? By early August, Greenland should have decently cold upper air.

      With this never ending warm/very mild cycle of months I have already given up hope for winter 2014/2015.

  19. Haha I was jesting of course, I'm very much for Scotland to say YES! It's turned into a OK day, which is little consolation as I'm spending it watching daytime TV.
  20. Ah, we're all together- Scotland and the Far North of England... don't you think we're better together?Anyway... drab day here, rain in the morning, clouds clearing out now, but still pretty cool.

    The Seasonal Forecast Thread

    Lazy Sunday afternoon's, ey? With July looking to move slightly positive, I'm going to see whether, using more concise use of the AO index, I can match anything up; this time around.
  22. 171 days until Christmas...

    The FIFA World Cup - Brazil 2014

    With Suarez, it's the way he is so good and so controversial, and how the English media have attacked him so much (rightfully or wrongfully) and how he has shown them exactly where to go; and with Argentina, I find the whole debacle from both sides so meaningless in the 21st century, it's madness

    The FIFA World Cup - Brazil 2014

    In order of who I want to win: 1. Colombia - drug lords, communists and the best fans in the competition. And Juan Cuadrado.2. France - love the team and the country as a whole3. Italy - another nice country 4. Argentina - Messi needs the WC to be the best ever, and also this Malvinas stuff really does anger the Little Englanders 5. Germany - really good to watch, Joachim Loew deserves something 6. Netherlands - young side 7. USA - love the support and 70s NASL 8. Uruguay - Suarez is fun
