  1. Agreed, winter 2002/03 wasn't bad overall, especially considering 4 out of the preceding 5 were pretty poor to say the least. In January 2003, I saw the two biggest snowfalls since at least February 1994 and although February 2003 didn't give any further snow it was often cold and anticyclonic until the final week.
  2. Lol, we had to learn this song in a French lesson at junior school!
  3. I don't remember much in the way of cold weather in November and early December 1998, bar a few frosts. The only minor snow event I saw during that winter was in early February.
  4. A bit of good news for today then.......
  5. Winter 2005/06 was very disappointing IMBY after promising signs. All three winters preceding it were somewhat milder but produced more snow. I agree, it was very much a 'near miss' winter.
  6. I had to put it on for a while yesterday. Off again today though!
  7. There are certainly no guarantees a cold winter will follow a cool September, but I think an average to cool September gives us a better chance of a cold winter to follow.
  8. That's my concern about this coming winter. Winters following warm Septembers tend to be mild, especially during the last 20 years or so.
  9. Missed the CET competition in September which I think was the first month missed since joining Netweather, 10 years ago! For October, I feel the general above average temperatures will continue and I will go for 11.5C please,
  10. Well, that would be nice but more it's more likely to in January. Mind you, if the latest Met Office contingency forecast comes off, the UK could well be filling up with snow come December!
  11. I've seen worse updates for coldies from the Met Office contingency planners forecast at this time of the year.... Fingers crossed is all I can say!
  12. Let's hope that come January, the UK is filling up nicely!
  13. I think it's a safe bet now that September 2016 will be the warmest since 2006.
  14. Right, just about in time. 17.2C for me please. I feel August could be rather humid and unpleasant.
