  1. You know it is going to be another poor winter when all the long range models show mild and all the hopes for cold lie on a potential stratospheric warming. As if we didn’t have a SSW last winter and ended up with a mild winter and record breaking warmth in February. Some people never learn!

      No, just looking at the available evidence.

      The last two SSW have produced record breaking cold across NA..maybe the next one will cough out the cold into Europe

      Everything produces cold in north America though.

  2. Third frost of the season this morning and hopefully fourth tomorrow.

      They are repeating the bloods tomorrow to see what his white cell levels are compared with last Friday.

      Its difficult with the meds that he's on. They do have side effects but compared with seizures its the less of the two evils. 

      They might take him off the meds but it will be a controlled reduction as its not something that should be stopped instantly.

      Hopefully his white cell levels improve and won't be necessary to make changes to the meds.

  3. In lovely Morecambe for the day. In the distance, the cumbrian hill tops have a bit of snow on them.

      Things are looking grim it has to be said. At least we had a cool Autumn and maybe a northerly topler will appear soon.

  4. Another cycle 25 sunspot has appeared sadly.
  5. Yes, high pressure to the east low out in the west, it means a period of southerlies.
  6. Tonight, I have a date with Christina Aguilera!

      Dear Santa,

      Please can we have a winter with snow like this.

  7. When I was a teenager in Greece, I had an image of England as a very foggy country. This was based on films and books. When I came here in 1997, I noticed that fog is quite rare as it tends to be windy. On top of that, like you say, there has been a reduction of foggy days/nights in recent years.
  8. Yes, almost every month lately is either the warmest or second warmest on record. And this is without an El Nino.
  9. Go the other way, by telling them it is going to be the warmest winter in 100 years! Still newsworthy and statistically more chance to come true than the usual Express weather headlines.
  10. We need some clear nights. Tonight should be a clear, chilly one.
  11. That's a nice switch in the outlook but after last year's fiasco, it is best to remain cautious.
  12. Another sunspot has appeared, this time from the old cycle.
  13. This is dreadful! Mild to very mild here and horrid drought in the continent!
  14. It is a pity that a new cycle sunspot has appeared (albeit not the first). Let's hope that the ascent to solar maximum will be very slow. 2009 had 71% spotless days so that's the one to beat. It is quite a task
  15. Frosts in Manchester city centre are rare events even in the winter months, so to wake up today and see the first frost of the season was a nice surprise.

      That might not be too far away.

      Slight frost this morning, so that's two so far this season. If I manage another couple of frosts by the end of November, this autumn will be classed as severe for Manchester ! 🙂
