  1. Even with a "slow" warming of our northerlies, it won't take much more warming to wipe out proper cold months, cold seasons and cold years. These are already as rare as hens teeth as it is. Our last proper cold January was back in 2010, our last proper cold February was back in 1996, our last proper cold March was back in 2013, our last proper cold April was back in 1989, our last proper cold May was back in 2013, our last proper cold June was back in 1991, our last proper cold July was back in 2011, our last proper cold August was back in 2014, our last proper cold September was back in 2015, our last proper cold October was back in 1993, our last proper cold November was back in 2016 and our last proper cold December was back in 2010. Our last proper cold spring was back in 2013, our last proper cold summer was back in 2011, our last proper cold autumn was back in 1993 and our last proper cold winter was back in 2012/2013 and our last proper cold year was back in 2010.
  2. Rest in pieces miserable "autumn" 2019! 13C Last sub 3C November in 1915. Last sub 4C November in 1925. Last sub 5C November in 1993. Last sub 6C November in 2016. 200mm of Atlantic garbage
  3. Since the October 2019 CET thread hasn't been started yet, I'll start it this time. I'll leave RJS to post all the usual averages and statistics though. 15.5C. Last sub 6C October in 1740. Last sub 7C October in 1896. Last sub 8C October in 1992. Last sub 9C October in 1993. 200mm from monsoons and Atlantic garbage
  4. Despite being wet, windy and unsettled, August 2019 still finished well above average with a CET above 17C.  Summer 2019 was the first summer since 2003 to have more than 1 month above 17C.

      Not a surprise. Ideal synoptics are now needed to get a below average month. Anything else leads to above average.

      we get below average months on regular basis here these days...August was well below making it 7 months in a row of well below average temps

  5. The Greenland Icesheet isn't just melting, its falling to pieces.:oldsad:

  6. 19C Last sub 11C September in 1952. Last sub 12C September in 1986. Last sub 13C September in 2015. Winter 2019/2020 is over before its even started. 200mm from monsoons and Atlantic garbage.
  7. Rest in pieces summer 2019! 21.5C Last sub 13C August in 1912. Last sub 14C August in 1986. Last sub 15C and last sub 15.5C August in 2014. 200mm from monsoons and Atlantic garbage!
  8. I'm disappointed that posts can only be liked yet again.

  9. The misery of the 3rd millennium continues... 22C Last sub 14C July in 1922. Last sub 15C July in 1988. Last sub 15.5C July in 2011. 200mm from monsoons and Atlantic garbage!
  10. My worst summers:- -2018 -2013 -2003 -2006 -2014 My best summers:- -1985 -1986 -1993 -2011 -1987
  11. My worst months of 2010s are:- January 2014 February 2014 March 2014 April 2014 May 2014 June 2018 July 2018 August 2018 September 2018 October 2018 November 2018 December 2018 My best months in 2010s are:- January 2010 February 2010 March 2013 April 2012 May 2013 June 2012 July 2011 August 2014 September 2015 October 2012 November 2010 December 2010
  12. If I remember correctly Augusts 1997 and 2004 both had a lot of hot, humid and thundery plumes which led to very warm CETs in both cases despite the near record amounts of average monthly rainfall. August 2004s warmth and rainfall was also bolstered by an unusual amount of sub-tropical cyclones such as the one that brought the infamous Boscastle flood. July 2010 was also a very warm but very wet Atlantic dominated month, ironically the only month with that combination of conditions in between November 2009 and February 2011.
  13. 20.5C Last sub 12C June in 1972. Last sub 13C and last sub 13.5C June in 1991. 200 mm from Atlantic garbage and monsoons.
  14. Rest in pieces 'spring' 2019! 17.5C Last sub 9C May in 1902. Last sub 10C May in 1996. Last sub 11C May in 2015. 200mm from monsoons and Atlantic garbage!
  15. Its a shame that the slowdown won't be enough to stop and reverse the Artic and Antarctic rapid meltdowns.
  16. Since I love proper cold and dry crisp weather in all seasons my best eather types are any that bring clean crisp dry Arctic or Continental Polar air whether its from Northwesterlies, straight Northerlies, Northeasterlies, Easterlies or even clean Rex bloke highs. I also love Maritime Polar Northwesterlies and Westerlies as long as they are not too wet! Gentle showers or light rain or snow, nothing more. Sadly Arctic and Atlantic warming has decreased the potency and frequency of all our classic cold setups.
  17. I hate all mild Atlantic driven weather patterns regardless of season and I hate all heatwave patterns regardless of whether its Maritime Tropical air or Continental Tropical air involved.
  18. I've just looked in the Greenland Ice thread and for the first time ever, at least from what I've seen, virtually the whole Northern Hemisphere is forcasted to have warmer than average 500HPA Heights.

      What 'swings and roundabouts' do you see @Astral Goat Juice?

      @karyo The fact it's happened many times over millennia. It's nothing new. 

  19. 14C Last sub 5C April in 1837. Last sub 6C April in 1986. Last sub 7C April in 1989. Last sub 7.5C April in 2012. 200mm of Atlantic garbage!
  20. I am not going to bring any children into this unjust, overheating and overpopulated world.

    1. karyo


      Good! As you say, the planet is overpopulated already.

  21. Days since last heatwave and moorland fire in Britain? Zero.:oldsad:

  22. Gray-Wolf, I think we will be very lucky if Antarctic Ice Loss and Arctic Ice "only" cause a Super-Interglacial. I fear more likely we are gonna end up in a full blown greenhouse era. We are already on track to be warmer than at least 4C above the global 1750 average. Even the Super-Interglacials of the Quaternary were only 1.5C-2C above the global 1750 average. I also think there could be more than sea level rise involved in the pole to pole melt connection. Loss of most if not all of Antarctic Ice would reduce or even eliminate Antarctic Bottom Water production in the Southern Ocean. With less AABW or no even no AABW in the North Atlantic Ocean, North Atlantic Deep Water production would increase bigtime which in turn would beef up the warm Gulf Stream current. This would cause rapid warming and deglaciation of both Greenland and the Arctic Sea Ice.
  23. First 20CA In winter coming up no doubt with this early heatwave.:oldsad:

  24. 12C Last sub 2C March in 1883. Last sub 3C and last sub 4C March in 2013. Last sub 5C and last sub 5.5C March in 2018. 200mm of Atlantic garbage.
  25. I'm sorry to disappoint you but I'm not Noah.  I wish I was though.
