  1. Never mind, I am sure we are Not missing much.
  2. As @mountain shadow says it will be a gradual process but it has started some time ago. I think we will have to rely on perfect synoptics to bring any decent cold here because there be a lot less cold available and the warming seas will moderate it more and more. Even for land locked places like my hometown in Greece, there has been less snow days in recent years.
  3. Yes a high percentage of above average winters and a decreasing number of days with snow cover. In fact, if we see the Met Office map for number of days for lying snow, most low lying areas should be seeing 5-10 days a year and quite a few with modest elevation 10-20 days. This is of course the 1981-2010 average and we know very well that the last decade average will be lower. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/learn-about/weather/types-of-weather/snow/snow-in-the-uk
  4. The high temperatures are not localised at all! Many central and northern areas are recording 15-17c. The poster's location is probably cooler because of the english channel moderating effect.
  5. Astonishing comment! Just because your location is not well above average it means that this mild spell is nothing noteworthy??

    We will know in a few months where this cycle is going. By the way, no update so far today.
  7. Impressive late winter storm is expected to develop over Greece by Saturday! Temperatures are expected to fall by 12 degrees and heavy snow is expected in many areas, especially in Central and Northern Greece. I will be glued to the webcams as our weather here sucks big time.

      It has been a very up and down winter in Greece. 

  8. The snow moon hasn't brought us any snow.

      severe lack of werewolves too

  9. Snow remains possible over higher ground in the north, but is unlikely elsewhere. That's it then! lol 🤣
  10. But if he seems a mild winter should he be discounted because he is more likely to be correct? At least he is not saying that the winter or a winter month will be cold just to get the likes like some other posters are doing on net weather. Then they disappear when the forecast goes horribly wrong. 😄 I agree about the warming climate though, there is no question that cold winters are becoming more and more rare.
  11. The latest enso update shows that en nino has re-established so perhaps a better chance of a cold spell in March. https://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/lanina/enso_evolution-status-fcsts-web.pdf
  12. Is it the lovely poster that criticised Ian just yesterday? Lol
  13. Whenever someone praises Ian you come out of the woodwork to criticise him and you have done this year after year! His forecast was much better than net weather’s or any other that I have seen. His call on the SSW is commendable because he was the only one who said that it wouldn’t lead to cold weather for the UK. At the time, the ECM long range was showing northern blocking galore and easterlies for the UK. Even the met office kept predicting easterlies and northeasterlies since late December, only to gradually push them back and eventually cancel them altogether.
  14. I've mentioned some days ago that the drought in the continent is likely to give an early start to the forest fire season. I didn't expect it to start already in February! https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2019/02/17/cantabria-burning-more-than-700-fire-fighters-battle-around-50-forest-fires/#.XGqIY9L7TRY With the winds turning southerly in a few days, I wonder if we will import some of that smoke.
  15. Yes, once again he got it right. I still don't understand why net weather hasn't asked Ian to write their winter forecasts.
  16. We may get a below average spell of temperatures but record low is extremely hard to achieve these days. Also, look at how many above average months we get compared to the below average ones. There is a big difference.

    Thanks for the explanation. So we should see it drop soon.

    It is strange. Either way I have low expectations from the solar minimum for our weather. It is becoming obvious that western Europe is warming faster than other parts of the world.

    The solar flux looks very stubborn so far this year. I haven't seen it drop below 70. A few months ago it was lower.
  20. It looks brief though and besides the gardens will need some rain will all that warmth. lol
  21. The high pressure doesn't manage to ridge as far north on the 12z ICON so we get a subtropical southwesterly instead of the continental southeasterly. This can have a big effect on the temperatures due to warmer nights.

    November 1965: A very snowy month

    There was a lot more ice in the Arctic then and less residual continental warmth which made those November severe cold spells possible. The most recent November with notable cold was 2010 but it was at the very end of the month. Besides, since then the Arctic ice has receded even more.
