I remember Atlantic 252

Who has not even seen a flake of snow yet this winter?

Recommended Posts

Feel as though I am the only one, I know it is only 12th Dec, and snow in Dec is as rare as hens teeth, but nearly everywhere else has seen lying snow,

not even seen sleet or hoar frost yet in this dreadful location

But it's only December 12th! We just need to be patient.

I must admit the outlook for the next week or so is not too great from a snow perspective, but that will change eventually. Remember: many of the epic snow events of the past didn't get underway until well after the start of January.......

Had some sleet last Thursday Night but that's it, nothing else this year bar that one day in February and even that turned back to rain.

Amazing that we may end the year with just one day of falling/settling snow!

I haven't seen a single snowflake since December of last year, could this winter be any worse then the previous one I wonder, watch this space and don't be surprised if it is.

No snow here since December 2010.

Nothing unusual about that, though.. prior to Feb 2009, we had one single instance of lying snow this century - the thundersnow of Jan 28th 2004.

No snow in Preston - which isn't unusual. If you discount the pathetic half a day dusting we managed last winter we haven't had any snow since December 2010 - again not unusual.

      to save clogging up other threads, i thought i would start this one. if you are frustrated at the models, or like to moan about the lack of cold, or the stubbornness of the euro high or anything else about the weather that winds you up at this time of year, put it in here. say what you like, nothing is 'off topic' but be aware of forum rules- no abuse or personal comments!
      here's mine- i wish people would stop writing off winter before its happened! we all know the models can be frustrating and not show us what we want to see but thats what they do! we also know they can suddenly change without warning. the other side of the coin is, they can sometimes be right. we may get a mild winter but its not the end of the world! (that comes next year lol) just enjoy the weather, whatever it throws at us, and if its boring, enjoy something else!
