  1. This is absolute rubbish. The areas you mentioned will get plenty of cold weathrr and snowfalls in years to come. Why people look back on winters past with their rose tinted glasses on I don't know. Having lived through the 70's and 80's I can tell you there were plenty of mild winters back then. Yes there were very cold snaps and big snowfalls here in the south west but they were rare events even back then. In years to come, when conditions are right we will still see very cold weather and snowfalls, even here in the south west, but they will be pretty rare events and they always were!
  2. At last a sensible post from someone who doesn't look back with rose tinted glasses at winters gone by.
  3. That would suggest battleground scenarios are quite possible.
  4. Interesting tweet from Fergie for those who like their cold weather. Yes, plus models will struggle to capture how/when this all gets popped by mobility returning (which may be a rather torturous sequential affair, rather than all in one go). Either way, the risk is evident for most widespread cold conditions thus-far in winter 17-18.

  6. I remember the Jan 82 blizzard well. We were living in a lowland area just north of Bristol and were snowed in for a week by 10 foot snow drifts. Just over the bridge in Newport had a measurement of 80cms of level snow. An incredible event. Yes the South West can be well placed for big snowfalls when conditions are right. Hoping to see another such event soon!
  7. The Jan 82 battleground situation created a two day blizzard over S Wales, the South West and West country with deep, deep snow and intense cold for days after.
  8. Woken up to a nice surprise this morning. I was expecting maybe a sprinkling but we have a good couple of inches here in North Yate.
  9. Now -8c here. Some pictures of where I'm staying in Stratford Upon Avon.
  10. I'm working away in Stratford Upon Avon. Currently -10c here. Brrrr.
  11. Snowing in Yate. All in all a very snowy 24 hours here. Good to see. Now I'm travelling up to Stratford Upon Avon for a weeks work. Expecting to see a lot more up there.
  12. Being in North Yate, I'm East of the M5 and North of the dreaded M4. What could possibly go wrong! Fingers crossed for all hoping for snow.
