  1. Hi Dorset, My Nematodes arrived on Friday and they are in the fridge. I also plan to do it this week, as you say the weather looks good with nights not dropping below 7 or 8C. seems the best time to apply is in the evening from what I’ve been reading? Good luck with yours, I hope you manage to salvage your lawn.
  2. Hi everyone I hope you’re all keeping safe and are in good health? I’m after some help. I’ve got an infestation of leather jackets in my 1 year old Lawn ??? I’ve ordered and received parasites that will hunt them down and kill them, but I can’t apply it until soil temperature is at least 10c. Has anyone got an accurate reading for my general geographical location? thanks Karlos
  3. Hmmm, most snow events happen in late Feb/March aided by a weakened PV, that’s not looking likely anytime soon. It’s highly probable this year’s breakdown will be a late one given the strength of that beastly PV! northwesterly colder than normal airflow seems our only straws to clutch on this winter. Don’t worry though, next winter ?? ️
  4. Oh well, that’ll teach me for digging the sledge ? out in November. I take full responsibility ?
  5. No, this is probably the quietest I’ve ever been on this forum, because from every angle this winter looked doomed until at least Jan & that’s progressed through January now.... so you can bet your bottom dollar, just as we want spring...... it’ll snow ?
  6. This crops up every year and tickles me pink! i live so far south, that I can almost dip my toes in the sea from my garden. march 2018, from memory 18th/19th so hardly early March either.. snow can stick in March ?
  7. Flat as a pancake ? More up and downs than the Jet stream at present! Shaky.... Relax you will pull a muscle ?
  8. yup I agree. Actually the UKMO & ECM are not that dissimilar at +144 and by D8 on the ECM you wouldn't kick that out of bed would you?
  9. Just checking....What are we determining as reliable time frame? D6? Almost a week away? Asking for a friend

      I think Poch is too classy to move across that divide. I'd definitely take him but I think his principles would stop him.

      if he goes to united then he has no principles lol

  11. I think the term "proper Eastetly" is pushing the envelope somewhat! Proper Easterly 00z ICON 26/11/2019
  12. 06z GEFS look good, pretty much all of them go for a Major warming event at 10hpa, the Op probaly the worst of the lot and a slight step back from the 00z. Op/Mean/00z Op onto the 12z we go, afterall the 06z GFS is only worthy of the Bin ??
  13. got down to -2.1c, was a stunning frost this morning, white everywhere. could be the last we see for a while
  14. But it's not often we see a SSW in December is it, as we enter winter proper? along with entering Solar minimum and a QBO in a W to E phase.. I think what's key is that each SSW is different. Fascinating viewing!
  15. Or your 2nd name is Gordon..... The heights to our North east are extremely encouraging on the pub run...
  16. Oh boy! shaky I fear for you this winter if you are disecting each run, full credit to you if you can keep that level of enthusiasm up for the next 4-5 months! ? That said, the GFS 06z although not nearly as good in deep la la land as it's 00z (hardly surprise of the century) is not a bad match at D8. Not Sure what the ECM was smoking..... or was it? Hope eveyone is keeping well?
  17. Awwww thanks DB, I know you must have missed me through the tough summer months. ? just thought I’d log in and say “ello”... found myself a new app recently called rain alarm..... I’ve jumped out my skin on several occasions Today as it warned me a shower was nearby, with its dramatic clap of thunder on full blast ?
  18. Jumper on, jumper off, don’t you just love autumn ? Hope everyone had a pleasant summer. ?
  19. Winter maybe, but March is often prime time for Scandi Heights. March is more of a winter month than December imo, in terms of getting snow and cold uppers to the southern UK. But if that’s winter done, I’m pretty satisfied ?️
  20. What a night and day! Well worth the winter wait!! who’d have thought an Atlantic low would bring all of this right down to the south coast! As rare as rocking horse droppings!!
  21. Radar says no ppn left for me, but it’s still tipping it down? WTF... some strange goings on tonight with said radars
