Single Status Update
I signed up to this forum 7 years ago we was gripped by wintry weather and in that time ignoring BFTE which only lasted 5 days no extended cold, there has been no prolonged cold spell or real cold since. It is really dawning on me how rubbish it has been for extended period of time. Something needs to change in 2020s.

Being an island does not help our chances and where we are. The British Isles and Ireland would have to be pushed further away from the European continent and be pushed further north, nearby Iceland.
Or the following conditions will greatly improve our chances:
The Icelandic volcanoes need to erupt all at once.
There needs to be a very early and intense sudden stratospheric warming event taken place in early November. It has to be strong enough to obliterate the polar vortex winds.
There needs to be 31 foggy days or nights and 31 frosty or nights in October.
There has to be intense Northern blocking over Scandinavia.
There has to a weak El Nino event.
We need to be in an easterly Quasi biennial oscillation.
There needs to have been a strong Atlantic hurricane season.
The North Pacific waters between Alaska and Russia need to be much colder and that the cold water will need to spread throughout the whole of the North Pacific ocean. It would help if there were sea ice covering the North Pacific.
There needs to be a North Atlantic tripod in May.
There needs to a very rapid progress of snow cover in November that fills the whole of Scandinavia and Russia by the first or second week of November and keep on increasing throughout the month of November into Eastern Europe.
The jet stream should be go far south to the Mediterranean Sea/North Africa.
We also need to be going out of Solar minimum.
