      Nothing pathetic about it Eugene, old folks really struggle in these conditions.

      A repeat of March 2013 perhaps.. :-)

    3. gottolovethisweather


      I think Winter will bite middle thid of January and again in part of February but this season invariably looks more akin to 2011/2012 whichever way we look at it and that's pretty much what the NW guys with their long-rangers actually forecast.

    4. Eugene


      In your dreams cheese ;)

  10. About to step into the Model Discussion thread. I may be gone some time.

    1. knocker


      Like entering a Black Hole. You need to visit the climate area for genteel discussion.

  11. Absolutely dreadful news about Phil Hughes this morning. My thoughts go out to his loved ones.

    1. Summer Sun

      Yes tragic news

      Summer of 95

      Very sad news indeed. Only possible consolation is he died doing what he loved..

    3. Lauren


      Very sad. Makes you realise how quickly it can all be over.

  12. All that rain we had yesterday evening froze solid overnight. Still only 1.1C at nine in the morning.

  13. Am I right in saying that the "model outputs are unreliable over xmas because of missing data" argument is just a myth? It gets aired every year without fail

      Wishful thinking perhaps!

      Its only more unreliable when its not showing cold I bet this was never discussed in December 2010!

      It was im sure of it, more so,

  14. Amongst the usual dross, there have actually been some exceptional posts so far this winter. Check out Snowking's contribution to the Model Discussion thread (post #865).

    1. Gord


      Couldn't agree more. Must have taken him some time to put that post together but it makes a very valid point loud and clear.

      yeah, 34 likes, dont get that many often for 1 post

      Good solid post

  15. An independent review has revealed that Barclays paid just £82m tax on a £7bn profit in 2012.

    1. PerfectStorm


      And yet they hit the poorest hardest saying they are all scroungers?

      Evening thunder

      Yep, sounds about right unfortunately

    3. Dancerwithwings


      We need a robbing hood!! rob the rich to feed the poor!! HA HA with this government no chance of that.

  16. Anybody else also feeling confused as hell???

    1. Guenhwyvar


      Would you like a cuppa tea father? Oh go on go on.

  17. Anybody wondering what a bitter easterly wind feels like - well now you know!

    1. I remember Atlantic 252

      I remember Atlantic 252

      bbc surely underdoing it, cant believe they only say -2, feels more like -10

    2. Fozfoster


      Yeah was in Heacham the weekend, that was COLD.

    3. Bottesford


      I ceased wondering a few weeks back now its almost normal! True though today was very bitter.

  18. Anyone else seeing that eerie glow in the sky that always appears after a big snowfall? Beautiful site.

    1. Carl46Wrexham


      Sky is a sort of orange colour. The kind of night when I can look out of the curtains and be able to see everything.

    2. full_frontal_occlusion


      Paradise by sodium light!

    3. Styx


      had enough of summer already, looking forward to winter snow now - fat chance if that happens though!

  19. Approaching midday here in Solihull, and the temp is still only 0.4c

    1. frogesque


      It's February! Daylight is getting longer though so I expect it will reach 10C by July

    2. Bishop Brennan

      Bishop Brennan

      The broader point I was making is that it seems quite unusual for midday temps to be so low under full cloud cover and in a brisk wind.

    3. Summer Sun

      Summer Sun

      I would take a northerly wind any day over an easterly at least in a northerly you get more sunshine unlike the dull muck an easterly produces

  20. As a matter of interest, how many more goals did Liverplop rack up vs Palace tonight? I turned off at 0-3, game over.

  23. Being a Villa fan at the moment is a bit like being a snowy weather fan during a never-ending Bartlett winter.

      Believe me, Villa are in far more of a mess than Liverpool are right now. I'd gladly swap places with them!

    3. Kain


      Yep, even though you beat us, I really feel for Villa :(

    4. Summer Sun

      Summer Sun

      Villa beat Liverpool 3-1 then go and let in 15 goals in 3 games the way Villa are going there heading for the Championship

      If you're single I saw this quote somewhere which made me smile:

      "If you're single celebrate Valentine's day like St. Patrick's day" Good idea
