    We've been spoilt last few winters . This one is destined for bin. raining and stormy all the way. Total rubbish. 26th January and not a single flake of snow down here. although news did day possibly a wintry shower tonight.   Almost February , one more winter month and that will be it. All rather depressing

    It seems to me like a very similar set up is occuring here to what happened last January when the Atlantic was showing to shove the scandi block away with ease from t120, then as the time got closer westward corrections started to show with instead of the troughs disrupting in the North Sea they eventually disrupted over the south west with copious amounts of snow falling over South Wales remember very well they issued the only red warning ever issued covering Cardiff to Swansea! So its not by any means over yet more runs needed and watch the westward corrections happen iv got a good feeling about this scandi block :)

    I'm also seriously hoping the scandi high is underestimated! It really is the decider between the Atlantic breaking through and snow.

    To be quite frank the words patience and potential are beginning to grate me with too many banking all our hopes on a SSW which may or may not lead us all to riches. I said a couple of weeks back that this winter bears all the hallmarks of a nineties, noughties winter when there was a cold block to our NE whilst we sat in no mans land with the promise of impending cold, which never came.

    Dont forget the early/mid 70s as well SI - certainly down here, back then, anyway.Truly awful winter, so far - if it carries on like it for another 2 weeks i'll be hoping it swiftly comes to an end with an early warm Spring. Hate March cold.

    This is the UK, though, not Sydney - such weather is not guaranteed to last even a few days let alone the entire summer. We might well end up with a summer akin to 2007 or 2012 - a double-whammy for those of us who like cold winters and warm summers (i.e proper seasons). Our weather can be truly dreadful at times.

    The sooner we get back to this type of weather the better http://www.earthcam.com/world/australia/sydney/ Roll on some high pressure, sunshine and warmth Nuf said!

    Yes SSi'm a cold and snow lover in Winter, but hate the rain and am fed up with this winter. Not a lover of a "wintry mix" either; it has to be full on decent snow.if that wont come in next 2 weeks then give me a warm, sunny early Spring.Love sun and warm - off to Fuerteventura in March - luverly!

    Cant believe it has all fallen apart again. So frustrating.

    I'm not sure if was ever really "there" in the first place TBH. There was never proper model agreement, and, a few juicy runs mainly from the minor models aside, it never seemed to add up to anything spectacular anyway, even if "it" did come off. I think the sense of "it's all gone wrong" comes more from the way in which people focus on any chance for cold/snow and then ramp it up TBH.

    There is a limit for everything Its gone on too long now believe me I'm looking forward to the sun and warmth hopefully an early taste of spring warmth will develop during February and the country can start and dry out, this low pressure can't last forever lets get it out the way now and maybe we can enjoy something better in spring

    I am in mourning Posted Image I've been blocked from the Exacta Weather facebook page. My crime was pointing out a few truths to counteract the absolute tripe being shovelled out by James Madden which alarmingly his disciples on there seem to be swallowing without hesitation. I don't know who is the bigger fool...Madden and his ridiculous "dangerous snow event this week" claims...or the muppets who believe him.

    I want a cold, snowy March, a dry, sunny and average April, a slightly-above average may and then a nice, warm sunny summer with thunderstorms. Too much to ask?

    The thing is nothing mate nothing is written on the wall yet , trough disruption looks the way forward but things are so volatile I wouldn't be surprised to see another change on the way
