  1. With a blocking Scandi High of 588 DAM there must some exceptionally warm air tied in with that one! Even my wildest blowtorch predictions have never foreseen a 588 DAM Scandi High in the middle of November. That must be unprecedented for late autumn and winter. Even in summer heatwave patterns, 588 DAM Highs in High and Mid-High Latitudes are exceptional and noteworthy. You'd think though, that such a 500 HPA High would be impossible without low level maximum temperatures in the 30C+ range?
  2. CAGW skeptics are blaming global warming on good old oxygen and nitrogen whilst downplaying Carbon Dioxide, Methane and Water vapor!  What's the next piece of garbage there gonna come up with when that falls flat!?

      Ha ha, they're probably all flat earthers and anti-vaxxers too.


  3. It would be nice to get the coldest autumn of the century for a change but for that we need to beat autumn 2010s 9.77C and for that, November 2018 must finish no warmer than 5C.
  4. Rest in pieces miserable "autumn" 2018! 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

    July to November 1993: cold

    I've always believed that cold period was a residual effect of the temporary but sharp global cooling which was caused by the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991.

    Least favourite weather events

    Winters 2013/2014, 2014/2015, 2015/2016, 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 were all too mild and wet and stormy for my liking. Summers 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018 have also been too hot and muggy. Autumns 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 and 2018 have all been too warm and often wet. Springs 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 have also been too mild and often wet for me.
  7. 15.5C. The summer of hell is giving away to the autumn of hell. 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 of Atlantic garbage
  8. My own dad screwing with me off yet again!  Blowtorch and muggy wet, windy and stormy maritime tropical Atlantic garbage yet again?!  Definitely autumn at its worst for me.

    Arctic melt Season 2018

    As well as the "positive" feedback involving reduced albedo, the biggest doomsday scenario resulting from Arctic Sea ice loss is the massive release of methane from the Arctic seabed.
  10. Its really nice to see your pattern threads returning!

  11. burned out :(

  12. @CheeseAndOnionCrisps Not all summer and autumn Atlantic months are cold. In fact some have been warm or very warm. Examples are September 2002, September 2004, September 2006 and September 2011, August 2000, August 2002 and August 2004, July 2010 and July 2017. All of these months were dominated by unsettled warm and humid Maritime Tropical Atlantic Systems due to a Warm Zonality jet or the UK being in the eastern side of the Mid-Atlantic Trough. Even in months were most of the UK is stuck under hot and dry Continental Tropical air, at least northwestern Scotland is often stuck under Maritime Tropical West/Southwesterlies.
  13. The curse of the "Summer Of Hell" continues... 19C Last sub 11C September in 1952. Last sub 12C September in 1986. Last sub 13C September in 2015. Winter 2018/2019 is over before its even started. 200mm from monsoons and Atlantic garbage.
  14. I believe algae removing carbon dioxide from the air may be our best hope against runaway global warming.

      I have some on my pond ,you can have it if you want it ??

  15. I'm with NTC et el. Its time for the Summer Of Hell to do one!
  16. The lovely cold winter weather of Febreer and March feels a million lifetimes away for me. I fear we will have to suffer another 5 years without a winter before we see its likes again, at least. Needless to say I have hated the hellish heatwaves that have been with us (with only brief interruptions of Atlantic garbage) since April! In contrast I loved the "classic" cold weather in February and March though I wish March wasn't as wet as it was.
  17. Rest in pieces summer 2018! 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!
  18. Your guesses for July rival mine!

  19. 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!
  20. I hate my miserable life.  I want to end it.

      Have to agree with everything that others have already said; there is help out there. Just don't allow yourself to be dragged down by those who simply do not understand our difficulties: they know not what they do...:D

      I was sorry to read this. I can sympathise with you. Do what everyone else has said and do talk to someone. It won't be an instant fix, recovery can be slow and erratic, there are no shortcuts I'm afraid, but it is important to talk when you reach a crisis point like you have. It is my sincere hope that things get better for you. If you can, get outside and enjoy this sunshine, be physically active, eat properly too. Those things actually have a proven physiological effect that can help improve your mood. All the best.

      Well a warm up next weekend is looking odds on now. The GFS pub run is a peach. Considering how wide of the mark the GFS was last time, mid 20s won't be out of the question. The EC 46 still paints a below average picture for May, but I can't see how that will verify at this rate.

  23. Rest in pieces 'spring' 2018! 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!
  24. Whilst I'm a bit sad that March 2018 wasn't as cold as it could have been, I am happy that we finally achieved some back to back cold proper months. 2 so far. We have to go back to the "big 6" of "January through June 2013 for the next last period of proper cold back to back months.
  25. 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!
