  1. I reckon I'll put buying my new sledge 'on ice', for a wee while. I'll wait until Tesco offers them on a BOGOF promotion! Nowt beats those easterly zephyrs?
  2. That would suit me fine, Dave...as I'd pip Summer Blizzard to the final Champions League spot. Unless of course A. N. Other plays a blinder!
  3. Have you forgotten the one we had last-year? But nonetheless, it's always good to have potential!
  4. Aye, good luck, with it, Fred. But, I do have the feeling that (with the ever-present GW signal unlikely to disappear, any time soon?) hot summers, as opposed to cold winters, could be the hallmark of the current grand minimum...? All the best, mate!
  5. So, what has the fact that the coolest part of the day is after dawn (or the time required for the Earth to cool) got to do with anything?
  6. In which case, wouldn't there be a clearly discernible 11-year oscillation in global temperature?
  7. Now watch that extended LP dumbell and cut off the northerly!
  8. I'd be interested to see a plot of # of sunspot-free days/year versus the following winter's CET.
  9. Nowt too exciting about today's GFS 12Z, IMO. Aye, there's some cold air up to our north, but I have a nasty wee feeling that the depression, out in the Atlantic, will sweep mildness northeastward...But, as it's at T+384, who knows? Les ensembles don't suggest a cold, snowy outlook, either.
  10. He does balk a load of tollocks, doesn't he?
  11. Katrine's post in the other thread reminded me of this...1979, I believe:
  12. This Pete Seeger classic always reminds me of 1969-70, which I spent in Tunbridge Wells:
  13. Eeeeee up...it's a one-man Mexican standoff: barbecue in one hand, sledge in the other...? Possible unseasonal warmth followed by our first blast of real winter!?Or wishful thinking!
  14. Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear! There's nae much sign of a PPE (purple people eater) paying us a visit, any time soon...On the contrary, the future looks orange! Never mind...it ain't even winter yet!
  15. Indeed not, Fred...But, neither are we in mainland Europe!
  16. Although potential and realization are two entirely different things, today's GFS 12Z operational ends with plenty of the former. Now that mainland Europe looks to be, at last, showing signs of a cool-down...?
  17. Saw Crocodile Dundee, at the MK Dome, on January 12th 1987:
  18. And, only 10-years' back, what is now the sceptics' model-of-choice was being pilloried by those very same 'sceptics'... 'Climategate': When sceptics tricked the public WWW.BBC.CO.UK Hackers stole 6,000 emails and other documents from a climate research centre almost 10 years ago. From zero to hero, in the blink of an eye!
  19. Never give up hope, Jon...Day 18 is nigh! On a more serious note, the synoptic pattern that's been wafting warm air all the way into Europe looks about to expire, at last...?
  20. Aways out in FI, I know, but it's a slideroonie! So we'd best make the most of it!
  21. I wonder whether a warm Europe (everywhere but some coastal fringes) now, correlates to a brutal January and February? Well, it's better than a solitary sleet-blob being spotted in Basingstoke!
