    Bartletts can be a menace, especially if they come with persistent mild and drizzly weather. That being said there are some warmer synoptics which I would find pleasant enough.

    This brought some beautiful late winter weather. Glorious sunshine almost UK wide, Mid teens by day and widespread night time frosts. The high shifted a few days later to bring an easterly flow which dropped daytime maxima to just 2/3C with hard frosts at night.

    That's a monster 1070mb Greenland high extending south!

    .

    I think this is said every year but you have to treat high pressure modelling over Greenland with a large pinch of salt. No doubt high pressure with that example but it wasn't 1070mb.

    An early start to winter would do me a la 2010....provided it carries on until March! Come on, I'm not asking for much!

     

    Nov-Dec 2010 with a Jan-Mar 2013 following :)

    With you on the Bartlett, but I'd take a mid-Atlantic high....

    That gave heavy snow here

    DEC 2010.... The Three Degrees....."When Will I See You Again".... Maybe not in my lifetime :cray:

     

    As did the above one, but this this was better and this gave snow which lasted for about 10 days.

    We (or many of us) will get our dream winter, but we'll also have to contend with decades more of Madden charlatanry with the Express et al hailing him as a genius.

     

    Talk about a Pyrrhic victory.

    Thanks for taking the time to post this. That is quite a list and these extremes aren't going to stop. They will keep on coming. So what extreme would like to see next if we have to have one?

    Well we had the wettist winter on record. Next i personally would like to see the snowest winter on record.

    Just hope we don't experience a winter like 2013-14 with all that rain and strong winds from mid Nov to end of Jan.Feb and March were pretty pleasant down this neck of the woods which allowed the drying process.With it looking like a weak El Nino setting up the probability of last winter repeating itself are lower and I hope for a December 2010(unlikely I know!!) followed by cold spells in Jan and Feb with heavy snowfalls and Spring arriving in early March. Time will tell what we get and I look forward to visiting the forums when snow is in the forecast and this place goes bonkers lol!!

    Well whilst it may seem "romantic" I fear the UK infrastructure would collapse if we did and lack of work, food, heat, water due to it would soon change that view.

    I want to see snow so deep it comes up to my knees, the type of depth that buries hedges.....and not just over elevated ground (like March 2013). You may laugh considering I live at such a low elevation but the historical records suggest that we have had snow that deep even here before. So it is possible.

     

    The maximum snow depth I've ever encountered is about 10cm.

     

    At the end of December 1962, Keele uni had 45cm of level snow, even Manchester City Centre had 15cm of snow lying. There were drifts 15 feet deep in some places of the west. Imagine that!

    In December 2010 we had around 50cm of snow here. It was insane.

    How many inches is that?
