    better late than never heres a wee thing on a few winters

    Well done BUS that was very interesting viewing. The one thing I noticed, when seeing all the winter charts one after the other, was that there wasn't that many Greenland high bad winters until you got to 2009? A few yes but predominantly either Arctic, Scandy or in the case of 1984, Russian high.  In most cases however, (the really notable ones) the vortex appeared very powerful. Quite an eye opener. I would say now that it obviously doesn't have to be GOB!Posted Image Thanks for that.

    Coming from 300m+ up in the Peak District, it's normally everyone else getting rain and me getting snow rather than the other way round! Sometimes I hate sea level and the city centre...

     

    In a day after tomorrow scenario, it would still just be rain in Glasgow. Would be a refuge in a glacial apocalyptic world.

     

    Mrs SS, as we used to pass through on the way to ‘Glasgow’ (ahem) Prestwick to get Ryanair to Beauvais, genuinely asked me ‘Why does eet always rain een Glasgow?’

     

    Below zero here. All I can say. Weather station has gone to that happy place in the clouds. Mrs SS content as my B-day present sorted for early December. Head out the window and wet finger in the wind until then.

    Snow And Cold Rampers' Association or something like that. Before my time too.

    Ah well....You will be able to say you are a fully fledged member of Netweather once you join! Sacra stands for 'SNOW AND COLD RAMPERS ASSOCIATION' but only those dedicated to snow and cold can join! There is even a thread on here dedicated to it. Basically a banter thread with pics and jokes all referring to winter.   You should have a read through as it is quite funny. Look up Snowqueen1 and she will give you a member number. There is an opposite thread for the warmies but I can't remember what it's called. I think LS will be able to tell you though.  Actually, I can't remember the section they are in, he might be able to tell me that too!

    I've been trying to find the netweather groups bit but with no success so far. I'm a SACRA member, it basically means you're obliged to post something like this:

    every once in a while. It was better back in the day when the MT was a lighthearted place filled with rampers with low expectations instead of now when every second run is a TOORP on there. Mind you, maybe I'm being a bit nostalgic in my old agePosted Image  Remember the great Ian Brown/everyone else stand off in the run up to December 2009? Utterly brilliant showdowns, the drama does keep you entertained right enough, same with the SMvIB (and actually GP+Chiono v SM+IB) stuff last winter.

    Anyway, good to see that some people saw their first snow of the season but a bit annoyed that the NMM lead us up the garden path like that. I'll need to make a note of that for future reference - 'likes to tease east coasters during northwesterlies with fantasy snow.'

    I am just happy that the cold appears to be setting in LS! Who knows, perhaps next week will be colder. Plenty of time though. Every winter, be it cold or mild, always has a story to tell!Posted Image

    I wanted to add to what you had said about Greenland highs and I think this may be one of the main facts we might see coming from this period of low solar that it opens up Greenland fully as like in the great video NORTHERNLIGHTS posted further back in the thread showed that during periods of solar activity we have a tendency for heights to build to our northwest also earlier in the year while looking in the start thread there was a link to an American forum and I picked up on a post in there where the guy mentioned that since 2007 the polar vortex has seemed to take up a new home over toward Siberia also it is said we suffer the worst cold in these periods as well.

     

    so from all I have seen and read about the things that have been happening since the sun went quiet I think the main mechanism change we are seeing happen is this causing the polar vortex to move home which in turn allows us the get the HOLY GRAIL more often than in other periods which would open the floodgates more often over us which is why we are the one part of the world that feels the most affects during low solar events.

     

    i may be wrong but that's how i'm looking on it just now till i see what other stuff comes along in time.

    I am absolutely delighted to have seen some snow today - November snow is a good acolade to begin the season but to have it before the 20th is amazing. This wintry and cold weather has put 2013 amongst 2005, 2008 and 2010 and after the cold start and with further cold weather to come this month is looking like a notably chilly one to look back on. Hopefully some anticyclonic weather will continue the cold theme and it would be even better if this leads to something more special. Some really wintry scenes on the traffic cams and the radar shows a feature to the far north bringing plenty of snow. It will be interesting to see what this does overnight.

    Living in an old farmhouse a strong wind usually rattles everything but just been woken up by what I always describe as a muffled wind so I knew before I looked out that heavy blowing snow was falling , I was correct. Currently -1c

    Beautiful morning. After getting the train the last week or so, and despite the cold, it's looking like a cycle to work today. Stunning autumn morning!

    That's just what it looks like here SC! Very pretty, temp down to just below freezing last night, snowing heavily at 8.30pm and we awoke to a nice wee dusting! All change later on when the rain and wind get going, so back to normal tonight! Nice while it lasted! Posted Image

    First?? I have been hat (more ear muffing) and scarfing (and gloving!) for some time. I'm just hoping it's not slippy!

    I don't know what the stats are for this area as atmospherics appear to be playing hell with my signal at the moment. Safe to say it's a cold one though and everything white with frost.   Didn't really expect anything overnight here snow wise.

    A fairly red sky this morning, turning to clear blue sky with pale gold sun... xc says -3 at Embra airport, and it's certainly nippy. No snow, but it was an outside chance anyway - but definitely a day for a few extra warm sheep worn decoratively about my person! :)

    It was very cold this morning, hardest frost on my car and the ground was solid. Garden thermometre says -3, lovely morning!
