  1. If you read through the archives the same thing happened around this time in 2009. It's like a inevitable knee jerk reaction to the mild November weather we are having now similar to 2009 It's quite reassuring, from a coldies perspective reading all the "winters over" posts and the bickering that went on in here around this time in 2009 due to the mild November. Little did they know that in a couple of weeks time they were about to experience one of the coldest winters in living memory

  3. when the bitter cold and snow comes its gonna be a hell of a shock to the system
  4. I'm personally waiting for iapennell's winter forecast, he usually does one this time of year. They have been very thorough and in my opinion quite close to the mark during the last couple of winters. I wasn't quite sure at first because he mentions in quite some detail certain dates throughout the winter months. So Iam anticipating what his methods will show for 2015/16 season
  5. HAHAHAH!!! all this talk is hilarious October the 30th and the writing is already on the wall for this winter. At this point I would just like to reiterate what seaside 60 wrote few posts back: "However it must be noted that 28th oct 2010 there is no forecast of the mega cold spell that was coming" especially so that we are in a situation atmospherically and SST wise not seen before, so in new territory i.e not many analogues to compare
  6. Just a question to put out there. Does anyone know if we have had a snowy cold winter (not just the north uk) from a predomatley west/north west storm track with little in the way of blocking, due to a cold anomaly in the North Atlantic??Winter 1984/85 comes to mind, I'm sure I heard from somewhere that it was a cold, snowy winter predomatley from west/north west. And sure enough that year ended with a cold Atlantic
  7. And if we are in a north westerly regime, with little in the way of blocking, will the cold pool help the storm track stay cold???
  8. Cold pool that year in september Then in October of 2009 it warms quite a bit But then by December it cools again
  9. Yes and the cold pool became even colder in December that year. So a keen eye on the cold blob during November, I would bet on it coming colder again towards the end of the year
  10. If you look at the cold pool during 2009 (I think the last time we had a tripole in the Atlantic ) it was very cold right up to October where it faded, then restablished in November, then we had the very cold start to winter
  11. Yes and that day was followed by the coldest July night on record and not much mention of this!
  12. I reckon November 15th 2019 for Bude/Cornwall for a proper dumping, maybe December 14th 2015 cold enough for a few flakes
  13. We had quite a bit of snow for a few days down here in a Cornwall, but nothing special, nothing like 2009/10. I would take a guess and say the next memorable winter for us will be 2018/19 (around solar min) I think it was knocker in a different thread that pointed out that we seem to have had cold winters coincide with solar mins recently
  14. They are all here!!!! Got loads down here in cornwall, my daughter is freaking out as they are all attached to the patio doors trying to get in.Did you hear the Urban myth that the daddy long leg is the most poisonous insect in the Uk but they don't bite Hahahahaha!
  15. Has anyone got a graphic to compare North Atlantic SST this time last year (or last couple of years)compared to this years
  16. A yes the castle grounds, nice spot. Did you know the canal completely froze in winter 2009 and then again in 2010. People were ice skating on it,Shows how cold it was, hoping for the same again this year. In 2012 the canal completely emptied after the lock gates were smashed due to one of the worst storms for 50 years. Lots of dramatic weather, but no dramatic heat I can think of in the last 15 years.
  17. Sorry, I was just trying to say how Mother Nature likes to even things out a little, from time to time. Hahah, it's a small world, whereabouts in Bude did you stay?, I've lived here for 12 years and love it. It does have its own unpredictable micro climate unfortunately sometimes though
  18. After another record was broken in the uk this summer
  19. So would you say in 15 years time in Cornwall, during the summer of 2030 I will be enjoying days of 35 degrees + or will I still be complaining that we didn't even reach 20 degrees?.snowness winters and hot summers were predicted back then, they didn't happen.my next question is when will I be feeling the effects of global warming that I'm reminded about everyday?
  20. OK, I know I get slammed for saying just because its not 30 degrees IMBY global warming is not happening, but if someone told me back in 2000 (when I truly believed we were heating up) the temp will not get any higher (in Cornwall, one of the mildest counties in the Uk) than a measly 20 degrees for the whole of July, August and much of June in 15 years time, during the summer of 2015 I would have laughed in their face. Global warming may be happening else where, but it sure aint happening her...

      Indeed, Nick - I wonder what part of "GLOBAL warming" the OP can't understand...

      So are we not part of the globe????

    3. chrisbell-nottheweatherman

      chrisbell-nottheweatherman

      Of course we are, but global warming means that the globe is, on average, getting warmer - more places are warming than cooling. What happens here is part of that average. By saying "global warming isn't happening here" it's you that are treating Cornwall as being somehow detached from the rest of the planet. Cornwall itself might not be warming (though, spread over the last few decades, I bet it has warmed), but global warming by definition is happening globally, including...

Global warming may be happening else where, but it sure aint happening here, where we are, our island, our home. If someone told me 15 years ago Cornwall will be enjoying 35 degrees+ temps and heat waves during the summer months I would have believed them. Its not happening!!! another summer has passed and yet again it has been cold and disappointing down here in Cornwall. On the plus side, they said we would be suffering endless droughts, my garden is looking lush , green and in full bloom!!! P.S I know I will get the " But during global warming episodes you will naturally get local differences and anomalies" but my question is why am I not seeing long hot summers????(i'm not bitter or ought !!! just waiting for my 1976 style summer that I was promised during my life time)
  22. yet another Auctober day!! if this is global warming, I would love to see what global coolings like

      we are the only nation to get cooler under global warming, global cooling would probably make the uk warmer lol , we like to do things different
