  1. I remember 2013 didn't get any real spring warmth through April and the first half of May. The next 10 days are showing below average temperatures of 10-11C highs. I wouldn't be surprised to see April continue this cold trend. I want some spring warmth now. Sick of snow! Enjoyed the winter wonderland that was early Dec in Coventry and early March brought another good sledging day with the kids. But this latest snow has been and gone with a cold wind so we didn't feel like going out in it. pinning my hopes on the ECM 12Z delivering an Azores high, but confidence is low!
  2. Enjoyed the late snow. Not so much the wind chill. But it was impressive to behold. We now appear to be in a period of weather that does not interest me. Until we start hitting temps in the 18C plus range towards April, I prefer the snow and cold to wind and rain, like many on here. But when will we record an 18C? I would definitely be hoping to achieve this in March here in Coventry, but not sure this year.
  3. The coming 5 days is as good as it gets for the UK. Blizzards forecast for the south coast come the end of the week. Before that heavy snow for the Midlands on Tues and more snow for the north on Weds. A biting easterly wind. If you are not content with this, you should probably be looking to emigrate to a colder place.
  4. A broken clock is correct twice a day..
  5. Could be a glimmer of spring in the offering today? I am hoping so, because by this stage, I am looking for a light at the end of the cold tunnel. I am patiently waiting for a day showing a sun symbol accompanied by the number 15C. I would estimate 3-5 weeks.
  6. Forget the easterly. It's born to disappoint. Bring on the northerly and let it bring snow.

  9. Winter 2017 2018 General Discussion

    My hopes are tempered by the recent mild winters. It's generally going to be rarer to receive cold and snow thanks to the warming planet. But as a snow lover, I seek solace in the fact we regularly get "stuck" in weather patterns. In recent years we have had weeks of westerlies (December 2015), weeks of easterlies (March 2013), weeks of a jet stream locked well south of us (December 2010). So for me, there is every chance of a cold winter ahead. We just need the dice to land perfectly. In probability terms, that would probably require 2 dice landing on a 1 or 2 to hit the winter jackpot so many on here crave..

    The low is flatter across the atlantic and the high extends into Scandi compared to GFS 6 Z at 192 hrs. 2nd half of August holiday makers like myself still retain some hope. The high develops into this at 240hrs, with no atlantic incursions.
  11. ECM at 240 is a sight I would love to see in Jan. Not so much a week before my summer holiday! This summer has hardened my resolve to work hard for the next 20 years, retire, buy a campervan, and drive it south during summers like this. Then keep driving south.
  12. Well a few days ago, my garden office registered 33C and I was forced to sleep on the living room floor for 3 nights. Short of shelling out for a portable air conditioner, it's too hot. I'd be happy with 17-22C, if only the sun would appear. Looking cloudy though for the foreseeable (which is quite an achievement in June given the height of the sun in the sky).
  13. I wouldn't be surprised to see another 2013. A cool May and June and then a sudden July heatwave. Which were the worst summers for heat lovers in the last 20years? I remember 2012 being poor. Anything worse than that in recent times?
  14. March 2017 C.E.T. forecasts

    7.1C please. Mild at times, but not record breaking.
  15. February 2017 C.E.T. forecasts

    Incredible temperatures recorded in the Mid West at the moment. http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/omaha-ne/68102/daily-weather-forecast/349291?day=1 Note from the above link, Omaha, Nebraska is due to hit 24C today. 4C is the average. 21C is the previous record high for this day set back in 1981. Do we have a website that gives Daily record highs for a particular location in the UK like Accuweather provides?
