Not everyone uses centimetres ya know - even for us young ones (am 34) - inches in brackets would have helped enormously.

N Scotland- temperature average, rainfall slightly above, snowfall slightly above.

W Scotland- temperature slightly below, rainfall average, snowfall above.

S Scotland- temperature average, rainfall slightly above, snowfall slightly below.

E Scotland- temperature slightly above, rainfall average, snowfall average.

N Ireland- temperature slightly below, rainfall slightly above, snowfall above.

N Wales- temperature average, rainfall slightly below, snowfall average.

Mid Wales- temperature average, rainfall average, snowfall average.

S Wales- temperature average, rainfall average, snowfall average.

NW England- temperature slightly below, rainfall average, snowfall slightly above.

NE England- temperature average, rainfall average, snowfall slightly below.

W Midlands- temperature average, rainfall slightly above, snowfall slightly above.

E Midlands- temperature slightly above, rainfall average, snowfall slightly below.

E Anglia- temperature slightly above, rainfall average, snowfall slightly below.

London and the SE- temperature slightly above, rainfall slightly below, snowfall below.

SW England- temperature average, rainfall slightly below, snowfall slightly above.

All my estimates, but I do believe this winter will be dominated by HP to our west and south west, low pressure to our north and north west, and a domination of north and north west winds, with south west winds at times, and some easterly attempts, especially in February and March. The further north and west, the colder I think.

Tbh I was on a bit of a wind up mission.

I know we will be having some cold this winter, but I can see it being very average and somewhat boring as I think any cold spells will be well scattered and weak in intensity.
