  1. This is the chart of the day for me. Shut your eyes and imagine the blizzard setting in
  2. The slight shift west makes all the difference to let the high in and in a week important differences can take place as this year showed! Edit, I mean last year lol!

    Winter 2018/19

    From memory early October 2015 climbed close to that figure too
  4. The one near Cleveland but the second pic is from Dalby forest area
  5. 6.9c final December CET https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/hadobs/hadcet/cetml1659on.dat 6.89c to 2 decimal places https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/hadobs/hadcet/cet_mean_2018
  6. It’s been a great year here in Ne England! January brought 3 days of lying snow, February 2, then March 5. Also had the deepest snow level since Jan 2013 if not Dec 2010. Then turned very wet for a time before the first heatwave(relative to month) in April. It soon went downhill after a few days but by the start of May a big change was underway to record sunshine levels between 1-21 May. May ended on a cool, cloudy note and carried on through June. By the last third of June the weather changed for good and brought much sunnier, very warm conditions which lasted through early August with a memorable thunderstorm in the last week of July, the lightning, thunder, the best I’ve seen in my life! Unsettled weather then lasted through August and September with heavy rain causing flooding around the autumn equinox. It felt like winter on high ground as the wind came in from the Ne wrapped round a area of low pressure. October saw a improvement to dryer conditions once again before a very cold last week! In November a milder pattern did take over and continued through December with a mostly kind, benign end to Autumn, early winter. The one day which did come in very cold being the middle of December with wind chill factor of -6c but was brief and short-lived.
  7. If the CET were to finish on 7 it would be only behind these years in the last 100 1. 2015, 2. 1974, 3. 1934, 4. 1988 5. 2018?
  8. Feb 1986, one of the coldest months of the 20th century, had above average zonal winds
  9. Looking at the forecast this morning I’m not so sure now
  10. There has never been three 6c+ winter months in a row so let’s see if Jan can give us a chance of this
  11. Perhaps 7c is out of the question but 6.6 would give the 2nd mildest December in 30 years!
  12. 1 analogue with many similarities to this year is winter 1953/54. It did take a while to change but the last third of Jan was bitter.
