      Well I believe so however I believe there is a relationship between our weather patterns getting stuck more in a rut with minimal solar activity, however an active sun has links to greater 'westerly bursts with a more rampant jet' I believe don't quote me

  3. 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????

    4. 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...

      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

      20C here yesterday and not that much rain today, don't know what the fuss is about!

  5. If May continues to be cool and damp to the end of the month, will we end up with the first below average month for quite some time? And is this the start of a downward trend a change from warm, above average temps to cool, below average resulting in a very cold winter 2015/16

      Wouldn't mind a summer first !!!.

      the switch was flicked to the 'warm' setting in july 2013, it has been generally above average since bar a a couple of months here and there, only a matter of time before the weather god says enough is enough and flicks it back to the 'cool' setting for a while

    4. Summer of 95

      Summer of 95

      The flip that started the 2007-12 Summerless period happened in May, after a very sunny April. Oh dear...

  6. Another hard frost here this morning. I cant remember the last time I didn't have to Di-ice the ice box car. Cant even open the car door this morning because its so iced over. It has been so cold the local fishing ponds /canals have frozen over. My eldest even said "when is this frost ever going to end I'm getting bored of it now, when can we have some warmth" we haven't had a stretch of cold like this since 2010. Long may it last through the rest of Feb and March!...

    1. March Blizzard

      Another decent frost back home in Devon which is frostier than here in the SE atm (though that's not unusual at all), though it's not as cold as spells in Feb 2012 at home, or Jan-Mar 2013 for maxima
