  1. Forgettable years, weatherwise.

    That snow chart; I do question it. Especially the 1980s. Wouldn't 81-82 or 84-85 be in the very snowy section?
  2. Thank you for this. I was just curious to know what sort of effect nuclear and missle testing had with the world's climate.
  3. I am not sure if this is the right place to post this, but with this volcano in Bali set to erupt anytime soon, and now another missle test from North Korea; can this influence our winter? I don't know how true this is, but I read constant nuclear testing in the early 1960s led to that famous winter. Perhaps all this (despite it being bad) is a blessing for us for a good winter?
  4. This is good enough for me, happy we may see a few flakes on Thursday if it comes off in Weston!
  5. I reckon we will have an epic winter. I reckon we will have a potential 1979 on the cards.
  6. Perhaps it’s a rogue run with the models? I just hope our foe the Azores High doesn’t muck it up for us otherwise we need to ask for it to be flattened man made style. Then again, it’s early in the game. November 2009 was mild and we all know the winter that followed that.
  7. What is the obsession with Christmas and snow? White Christmases are rarer than hens teeth. I guess wet and mild or cool and grey doesn’t sell Christmas.

      good for you, being right and all, but I'd like a bit of snow cos it makes it more cosy. We must of had snow at some point if cards have snowmen on. 

      bad girls was cool.

      Well, the chance of a white Christmas is quite low, although I experienced it the past two years on orthodox Christmas.

      But I personally like Christmas because I work in an industry where people tend to hibernate over Christmas, don't make changes and the work load really drops as a result, allowing a very unique time for me to relax more than I am otherwise able to do at other times of year.

      a westerly isn't just for christmas it's for the entire winter:friends: What industry are you in jvenge

  8. It's promising to say the least. I'd rather get the cold in,and build on snow for DJF.
  9. I know predictions can go belly-up, and we’re still early in the game but I think we’re in a stronger position than we have been over the last few years. I think this may be the start of a cold run similar to the one nearly 10 years ago.
  10. That would be nice to see on that day!
  11. I might get a white birthday this year then?!!
  12. I just hope that’s a rogue model run for December. Can’t be living with that again.
  13. I have confidence in the linkage posted by Paul
