A Winter's Tale

Your Dream Day Of Winter

Recommended Posts

Winter weather could be arriving to our shores within the next two months and I feel it is ideal to start a thread that gets people fired up for what this winter has to give.

Your Dream Day of Winter could be a day you have lived and want to relive it or a day that you would have loved to have experienced. Or you can combine all of your knowledge about winter weather together and make a completley amazing day.

The weather you choose could be anything from the tranquility of a crisp, sunny day to raging storms with powerful winds, swelling seas and lashing rain and a incredible blizzard to a record breaking cold day (or a bit of everything).

The format of your dream 24 hours of winter weather should be done as a weather forecast; review; observation/report and if you have any links or archives to enhance your forecast would be good.

I'm still yet to come up with a definitive dream day however I have ideas including:

Crystal clear and bitterly cold nights, nights with snow showers and clear skies, fantastic sunny, cold morning with the odd snow flurry, blizzard at lunchtime and afternoon, freezing and sunny afternoon and evening after snowy morning, fantastic sunset after streamers, evening blizzard, very snowy evening and night after sunny and showery day, nightime snowstorm...

Looking forward to hear your dream winter day.

Unseasonable mild weather with high pressure directly south in late February, temperature finally reaches 20°C across the south of England under clear skies.

Sound's perfect to me, and with the day's slowly getting longer to around 6pm the warmth would be felt longer into the night.

I would love to experience 15C+ and sunshine in December or January. I believe this may have happened once relatively recently- January 1991? I know the temperatures were high but I'm not sure if there was sunshine. The warm spell of February 2008 was a dream come true for me.

As long as the vile Atlantic is kept at bay and the wind is in the north and east I don't really care.

Funnily enough, despite February 2008 being really mild, we still have some snow. Oh the joys of living in one of the snowiest parts of the country..wink.png

I agree that the number of winter threads is rather excessive at present.

As for the initial question, it would have to have sunshine and snow showers and towering cumulonimbus cells, with a bout of thundersnow at some point, with at least three inches of snow on the ground.

However, I certainly wouldn't say no to a repeat of that anticyclonic spell of the 8th-20th February 2008 that a few others have mentioned- I thought that really was something special.

My perfect winter's day?

I wake up to a heavy overnight snowfall which continues all day long and into evening with no temperature rise and no thawing.

Then perfect day no 2 follows this.

After the previous days heavy snowfall a perfect cloudless ice day with no thawing.

The 7th December 2010 was an ideal day.

5 inches of snow fell overnight ( total depth 8 inches ) and had drifted in places to 2 feet deep, at sunrise, the sun never appeared as it was blocked out by a thick sheet of cirrocumulus type cloud to the south, meaning it never got the chance to warm the air or the snow, and with clear skies above, it stayed bitterly cold all day, maximum temperature was -1.4c, then the temp dropped away very rapidly to -12c, with the following day the 8th maxing at -6c

my perfect winter's day? any day of december 1879 especially the 10th december when temp was Minus 23c in Paris ( night time that is).The coldest month never recorded.i think the max was -8c for several days .

Would like one day but not the entire month as december 1879 was cold the entire month.

i'll trade you cold and snow month on end for driving wind and rain for month on end.. and we'll see which one is worse!

I have just realised that my perfect winters day is never going to happen.

As if I would have gone to sleep knowing that snow was forecast!

Agree with some other posters... we do have enough winter threads on the go at the moment. With two months still till the season begins lets keep it to the existing threads.

Closing this one now but do please post your dream day of winter thoughts in the other threads! p.s. my dream winter day involves somewhere like Barbados ;)

  • Warm run-up to Easter but a destabilising low means sunshine and showers at the weekend

    High pressure is keeping our weather settled at the moment, and in the main it'll stay that way until the end of the week. But with low pressure helping to destabilise the atmosphere this weekend, the sunshine will be joined by some heavy showers. Read the full update here
