  1. Lol, very true. I'd hate to think what chemicals would be found in any Glasto fatberg.
  2. That's echoed in (3) here. From TWO: Update 1 suggests a significantly higher than average chance of snow this Christmas in both the north and south of the UK. The primary reasons for this are: 1) Background signals including ENSO and QBO are not likely to be big drivers of the UK's weather during early winter. 2) We are close to a solar minimum. 3) Since the Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) in February there has been an ongoing signal for high pressure blocks to have more influence on the UK's weather than normal. In the late winter and early spring northern blocking led to widespread snow as the Beast from the East made its presence felt. That was followed by one of the warmest (it could turn out to be the warmest once all of the data has been collated) summers on record in the UK due to the persistence of anticyclonic conditions. As we head into the meteorological autumn the elevated signal for high pressure still appears to be present.
  3. Xmas could well be colder than average this year, says TWO, which gives the reasons. Doubtless similar reasons will be given by Netweather in due course!
  4. The xmas forecast has kicked off at TWO. The winter is expected to be on the nippy side, increasing the chance of snow at xmas. Looking forward to some beasterly flakes, lol.
  5. It's snowed in Surrey in May before - and in Peterborough on a May 19th - in daylight hours. On both occasions the culprit was a snow shower, not a band of snow.
  6. The Met Office is forecasting snow is possible in "all areas" by mid week next week.
  7. Nice. The BBC local radio for Surrey and Sussex said, at 6pm today ... sleet possible on Thurs. Yet the local BBC TV forecast showed temps about 11C on Thurs and Fri. Bonkers...
  8. Late on 1/12/10 that low started as a trough, moved north, developed into a low as it did so and stalled over the south of england during the early hours of 2/12 - and delivered a foot [give or take] of snow by dawn.
  9. The chips are down. Any cod in UK waters by Easter might well need woolly jumpers and goatskin undies. Humans may want to get their sledges out again and go back to lampost watching. The latest predicted synopses look... fab.
  10. Yes - farcical. The beeb been picked up on it and one day said the cloud had been removed so we could see where the snow was and was expected to be.
  11. So some models predict. My mention of snow late tonight reflected a post here about Croydon can expect light showers in the early hours. I thought - well if Croydon can, we all can.
