  1. Why not? It isn't an outrageous suggestion. In 2008 there was settling snow in London on 6 April.
  2. At the risk of being facetious, the important thing here is the first S in SSW. Sudden. We could just see a sudden appearance of cold weather on the models or then again, we may not. An SSW is no guarantee of wintry nirvana.
  3. Nonsense. The 06z isn't 'useless.' I don't know why this old chestnut keeps getting brought up. A mean chart for two weeks away on the other hand is truly useless.
  4. Well, well, well. 06z ensemble 2m temps for London still showing a brief milder blip and then cold all the way through. More chilly days to make up for the mild damp horror of much of this winter.
  5. 06z ensembles for London showing a brief warm up, although it won't be truly mild, then a return to below average. A late winter treat for having to endure so much mild muck. Leave it until after the end of astronomical winter to begin looking for warmth.
  6. Why can't you trust atoms? Because they make up everything.

      You stole that from The Big Bang Theory, didn't you? ;-)

      No, I just google for one liners. I've never watched that programme, couldn't tell you what it is about or who is in it.

      Good one :snowman-emoji:

  7. I really hope the Paris Accord can hold climate change at bay (I'm trying to be an optimist before you pounce on me!). Can you imagine a warmer world where every December in the UK was as dull, foul and non-descript as this in the South and as destructive in the North West?

      The world is already too warm and the agreement they have reached is not satisfying. The sad thing is that even the agreed target may not be achieved in the end.

      It won't, greed and corruption will win the day ....

    Winter 2015/16.

    I strongly disagree. There should be a clear distinction between the seasons. At least 8C feels like December.
  9. Is climate change going to make the UK's climate monotonous throughout the year? The weather in December shouldn't be the same grey 15 degrees max muck that it can be in June. Very unscientific I know but that is how it feels to me, I can't think of anything worse.

  10. Mild damp weather please bugger off. It isn't October anymore. Fingers crossed for some nice cold and dry weather to come.

      Are we binning the first third of winter already then?

  12. I am really happy with the proper model thread. Lots of informative posts and the whining and trolling of the past appears to have pretty much disappeared. Well played to everyone who posts there and kudos to the mods for keeping it in such good shape too.
  13. I always enjoy reading netweather on my smartphone while sat on the loo!
