  1. Never ceases to amaze me how easily a cold spell vanishes from the models even from the semi reliable timeframe.

      Have a great time K..

  3. For a time, I was worried about the possibility of missing some wintry weather by going away in December but it looks the only thing i will miss will be drizzle and southwesterlies. Not a front loaded winter after all.

      never underestimate the Atlantic in Dec, moderneraist in me I suppose but we are warming up, Atlantic air is more frequent that 20 years ago

      i don't know, got that member on ignore lol but the october fog index says no snow in london this winter, so if it snows it's a load of old ollocks like the other stuff

      lassie, probably his forecast will be out in the next couple of weeks. Unless he got fed up of being attacked here which is not unlikely

      he does get a hard time whilst others get a tap on the back for theirs which usually is not any more accurate

      Can't say I agree with Tamara  on many things  but definitely spring as winter rarely  delivers anything  here

      I am also looking forward to the Arctic air too and I wonder what type of precipitation we will be getting for London and SE England.

  10. 17 days in Greece are coming to an end and I have not seen a single thunderstorm, not even a distant one! The thunderless year continues for me but at least I got a tan.

      Had 4 frosts so far this Autumn.

      All that urban heat where you are keeps them away.

      Yes, I normally don't see any frost here till late November if  am lucky. October 2010 was an exception. I had a proper frost and ice morning on the 21st Oct.

  11. I thought the UK was bad for single use plastic but Greece takes the biscuit. The planet is doomed!

  12. Having a lovely time in Sithonia! Pine forests, mountains and quiet beaches. It's been 7 years since I last holidayed in Greece. I should do more often.

      yes and so is sooty.🤗

  14. One more week in Manchester and then back to Greece for three weeks. The models look quite interesting for Eastern Med. My chances to get a suntan look low as things stand.

      Maybe i will experience my first thunderstorm of 2018 but knowing my weather luck it will probably be just warm rain.

      No, it is an unknown phenomenon there.

      Did we get the frost? None here in Piccadilly but that's not a surprise.

  16. It looks like this September will comfortably get an above average CET. Warm Septembers don't bode well for cold winters.

      It's not necessarily the temperature, it's the rainfall. Dry Septembers don't bode as well for cold Winters as unsettled Septembers but look here in my sample space featuring the September EWP and Winter CET for years that contained a notably cold Winter, a Winter with some notable cold/snow events etc. There's actually more dry Septembers (for EWP anyway) than I would have thought that was followed by cold Winters (or Winters with notable cold/snow events at some stage).

      I think the best Septembers for cold winters are cold and settled ones like 1986 whilst the worst Septembers for winters are warm and unsettled ones like 2011.
