Bit misty, +2C and raining a little - not nice -

In fact I went outside and met this man who had a white beard and some sort of red track suit - he was complaining bitterly - he said that for the a good portion of the autumn he had been negotiating with the powers that be for a proper White Christmas in the whole of the UK - he felt it was about time we were due one so that that the kids could go out and have a proper play in the snow.

Anyway as time went by, in fact not too long ago he thought that he had better check up on his order - would you believe it, the damned clerk wrote down the wrong date and put it down as 20.12.2009. He tried to get the situation rectified but unfortunately it was too late for that, however he did manage to slow down the procedure so that at least the kids in Scotland and parts of the north of England could still have a chance.

I told him that I belonged to the Net Weather Forum - he was well impressed and asked me to pass on his sincere apologies to all those who were looking forward to a nice white snowy Christmas but unfortunately did not get one.

Despite this I understand that the clerk concerned is still getting his Christmas bonus. He claimed he had written down the date Santa had told him and it was not his place to query that Christmas day is normally 25.12.

In any case Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to one and all. :D:clap::clap: :w00t: :smiliz58: :D

Still -2C, although we have cloud, have had freezing rain and freezing sleet so far. Nothing that could be claimed as snow....yet!!

Edit at 8.40am: It is snowing :) :) That's as near as damn it to a perfect white Xmas then. Snow on the ground, snow falling from the sky, and we can stretch it 20 mins to 9am surely?? :)

Did Benbecula in the outer Hebrides really fall to -17C?? If so theyve smashed their temperature record minimum by about 10C I would suggest which is phenomenal!

Currently 2.4C here and sunny.

A beautiful sunny day here - the temperature has been rising quite quickly and may even hit the dizzy heights of 5 deg C after an overnight low of 1.4. Just about 50% snow coverage in the garden still, so I can count it as another day of lying snow, but it's thawing fast now.

Season's greetings to all! We're off to the pub in a few minutes... :)

Merry Christmas everyone!

Its a beautiful clear and sunny day with snow still on the ground (7th day now), very festive. We also managed a very late airfrost as the sky cleared just after 7.30am. Minimum temperature: -0.9C.

Currently 1.0C after another very low max of 1.5C. The mean for the month here is now just 2.9C, bringing it to within 0.3C of December 1995 with 6 days still to go.

Currently 4.3c after a maximum of 4.7c, so still a couple of degrees below normal. Last nigths minimum was 1.1c so again a couple of degrees below normal.

I don't think temperatures will drop much tonight. The mean here is 3.5c currently. December 2008 came in at 3.7c here so I think that's probably beaten.
