  1. I agree. I think we are now experiencing the real and practical change in our day to day weather effected by a global change. 15/20 years ago such a system would have bought heavy snow to the South as would have the other low that effected Southern England earlier in the week. The fact that an easterly wind is now news worthy is also significant in the way we view our weather. In the 70’s and 80’s an easterly wind that bought subzero temps wasn’t news worthy and calling it Beast from the East would have been un heard of as easterlies were much more common. News of snow and the subsequent consequences of course were reported but the easterly wind was not the news as it was a more common feature of our winters weather. Sadly the hunt for cold and snow in our winters are becoming a thing of the past. Rare and exceptional burst of cold will of course still occur and hence will be huge news but forums that focus on cold weather will become much quieter as our winters become Atlantic driven and milder and as the land masses warm up and the bite of any easterly will be less effective as a cold source.
  2. I’m not saying we won’t continue to experience cold snaps but you are burying your head in the sand if you cannot see the effect of what GW is now having on our winters/climate. Mild, wet Atlantic driven weather is now the common denominator. Our planet is warming up and we are now physically experiencing this effect. It doesn’t mean we will no longer see snow or frosts but it’s becoming very obvious that this trend is diminishing. Any cold blocks are not sustainable when they do occur. You only have to look back 10 to 20 years to see this change. It disheartens me to write this as I love the seasons: Cold winters / warm summers with spring and autumn in between. Sadly even these differences are being eroded and the peaks in each season are being flattened and our temperate climate is becoming less temperate as GW increases.
  3. The days have gone of severe cold. I am talking about more than 5 days of sub zero temps. All we get now are cold snaps with no longevity. It’s become very apparent that GW is the cause of this as temps rise across the planet and subsequently weather patterns shifting. I use to log on every model output and looking forward to nailing a cold spell. GW has changed all this and we have to accept now that snow and sub zero temps in the south is a thing of the past and thererfore ‘ the hunt for cold ‘ thread only really applies to the north and especially on high ground. I am not referring to this winter but all future winters. The days of blizzards and snow in the south that last for more than 2/3 days are over. Time to find a new winter hobby!

  5. If there is going to be another go at an easterly forget looking out in FI the models will pick it up suddenly and within the reliable. The weather won’t play to the models it will suddenly happen and the signals will come into focus within the reliable.
  6. You really couldn't make it up! Here we are in May and we get the perfect winter synoptics. High level blocking, a deep low over the med and an easterly. If this was january this site would be buzzing with snow coming in for many. Instead here we are in May and its all waisted.
  7. If Frosty is throwing in the towel we may as well all go home!... Worse than any 'flipping' chart!
  8. Oh that's disappointing as his analysis was always interesting and informative... A great loss to a great team!
  9. Isn't it around this time we expect a winter forecast from GP ( Glacier Point)?
