  1. Thunder snow all through the small hours of the night in North Durham. Insane!

  2. "Its 20c in western scotland". Won't BBC forecasters explain the Fohn Effect? It's not just shelter from that wind which is producing such temps there for a couple or so days running.

      Trouble is the BBC like to dumb everything down, and explaining the Fohn effect would require that the presenter understands the physics. To be honest I find the TV forecasts irritating most of the time. People assume what is in the forecast will happen, but there is obviously a probability attached to all forecasts, and they rarely mention that either.

      Look at the way they show the weather maps with Scotland reduced to about half the size it should be, with London and SE shown 'full size'

  3. Endless winter. Maybe it's all that rapidly melting Arctic ice that has contributed to this.

      Sea ice loss, more like media and political spin!

      why is a long winter 'positive'



      Whatever became of"power cuts"

  4. Expect power cuts within 48 hours. All you who have delighted in this prolonged cold weather will get a nasty awakening soon. Hope you're happy.

      I think I deserve an apology for being accused of making things up.

      True, maybe I'm over-reacting or relying on just one source from The Telegraph. That would be a fair criticism.

      Agreed PP, light hearted banter is one thing but some comments were below the belt.

      I think PP means 1962?

  5. I am sick and tired of the cold weather, which contributed to me contracting the flu. I still have it after several weeks. Grr...I can't wait until a major pattern change.

      Love the snow but I am sick of being cold now. I need a heatwave

    3. Bottesford


      Most (and yes I said 'most') are sick of it now. Fingers crossed for improvement in the latter half.

      We also had a cool September don't forget, it's been a very long stretch without anything warm, really not a good 6 months for warm/mild fans!

  6. This really angered me http://www.uncovered-truth.com/

      Ummm... I hope you were angered by how absurd it was. I sincerely hope you don't believe that garbage.

      BOY - that was really really interesting, if that was another person they would have investigated every alley until the truth came out, not in this case has it. If you are interested in Jack the Ripper, it has been said that they Royals were involved in that too.

  7. If it doesn't stop raining, I'm going to go outside completely naked and start screaming until it does.

      At the very least, you likely be taken away to a nice, cosy, dry and padded room!

  8. Constant rain, all day.

  9. I will always love the British weather. It keeps my interest.

  10. Gov’t sources say No. 4 pool a grave concern ...Tokyo metropolitan area would be forced to evacuate. http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/forum/218/gov’t-sources-say-no-4-pool-grave-concern-tokyo-metropolitan-area-would-be-forced-evacuate
