      "winter" 2019/2020 is yet another one for the dustbin.

      A nice mild winter. A few stormy sessions and a few very icy mornings but nothing to cause too many people too many problems - so far! I like weather where most people can feel and stay safe. While I do respect and enjoy people's preferences, I really don't like weather mayhem. The "Beast from the East" episode was very interesting and actually very enjoyable outdoors but really, for folks trying to get about their daily business, I wouldn't want it again.

      I've been having great fun with my elderly clients, recalling winters and summers past. One woman was telling me yesterday of her experiences of heavy snowfall at the end of May/beginning of June many years ago in Northern France.

      It would be nice to have a bit of seasonal stability so you might know what you would get but I guess that is fairly much gone, if it was ever there.

      trash winter but don't bin the OFI it was spot on......again?

  3. Personally I’m hoping for a wetter than average and cooler than average summer. No floods but a summer of HLB with a cool Polar flow would be great. ??
  4. I'm not happy, in fact I'm quite sad....it’s 30th of January and I’ve been working in a t-shirt all day. How we laughed at a certain Ian Brown all those years ago when he talked of the christmas pudding ? Come back and bitten us on the ass now ? bloody filtered words M o d e r n E r a
  5. Hopefully it will happen and hopefully impact on our part of the world. I remember last years record SSW produced absolutely zero for us in Western Europe so obviously nothing can be taken for granted.
  6. Just for clarity this is the temperature anomalies for the UK and Europe. Scary stuff.
  7. I know it doesn’t hold a lot of weight in here but the CFS monthly does reflect well what the GFS & ECM have been hinting at. Weak ridge to our north east and the euro high not so dominant.
  8. Interesting to also see that the real cold is well & truly bottled up over the North Pole, possibly not a bad thing if your looking at retaining and increasing arctic sea ice.
  9. Don’t get me wrong I’d love to see anything like those temperatures in our neck of the woods but there still massively above where they should be this time of year.
  10. Lots of despondency about our winter weather to date, in short it’s been dung ? first glimpse of light the last few days that it could be a back loaded winter with the end of Jan & Feb coming into play. Not sure I can stomach 2 winters on the trot with Zero snow days.
  11. Records are tumbling all around the globe, Australia is burning, the Amazon was burning, the arctic circle was burning, Arctic sea ice was at an all time record low (again) their are 50% less species on this earth than there was 100 years ago. We’re now seeing the real impacts of global warming and it’s impacting on our lives like never before so now is the time to individually try and do something about it, not just for us but for our kids and our Grandkids. Happy new year all ?
  12. Awful winter so far weather wise, torrential rain followed by grey skies and mild temperatures ? Surely it can only get better from here ? Wishing everyone a very happy new year ?
