3 Dustings later winter is back on hold, but at least it looks like a sunny high we're getting with winds coming from a westerly direction, although a very non-descript and dull period in terms of interest coming up  :mellow:

Looking at the forecast below for Darlington we should see some sunshine next week and given winds will be light it would feel quite pleasant by early afternoon in the sunshine

Suppose it's time to start the hunt for warm now. What's the warmest our regions been in Feb?

 

Not sure on the record but here in Darlington we hit 16c back in Feb 2012 so the mid teens can be achieved easily given the right set up

Nice comfortable weather that - 8-16°C and dry. Looks like what we're in for as well.

Great stuff 4WD, I am down in Seamer near Scarborough. Apart from a few heavy hail showers it's been mostly rain. I travelled to Harrogate yesterday and just a mile West of me there was a good covering!

There's talk in the scotland thread of a greenland high at the end of the month. That's what brought us 2010 right?

 

I think they are just referring to the NW monthly forecast which is talking about it

 

If we take a look at the met's longer range thoughts they seem to suggest low pressure for the far north with high pressure over the south

 

UK Outlook for Thursday 19 Feb 2015 to Thursday 5 Mar 2015:

 

It currently looks most probable that a period of more settled weather will continue to dominate in the south, whilst changeable Atlantic conditions will likely prevail at the start of the period in the north. This leaves most parts of the UK, especially the south, with slightly drier and colder conditions than average, with overnight frosts and fog patches likely at times.

i know its only beginning of feb but after the past weeks snow attempts that have failed for many of us i'm giving up on this winter now, roll on next winter!

 

yes we can still get decent snow/cold spells in march and a few snow days in april, but with the nights getting longer and sun stronger by then it never lasts long... cant see anything happening this month to change my mind either.

 

yes i have seen more snow falling from the sky this winter but the fact its all melted by lunchtime and back to square one just doesn't do it for me :(

Woke up to a covering of snow this morning which despite being barely worth talking about, was the first lying snow I've seen for almost two years (not counting the one we had a few days ago as that was just rubbish!).


 


Had a few beefy snow showers during the day but it's all gone now. I wouldn't bet against that being that for this winter sadly ...

Looks very light in intensity just looked out and nothing is falling

Just had a look at the threads from Jan - March 2013. That cold March was preceded by a lot colder January than I remember so maybe that's why this winters a bit dissapointing. Prior to 2010 this winter would have been impressive, hopefully next year can bring those 2 foot accumulations that hit Consett in Jan 2013 to the lower levels.

It's that light you can't even see it?

Winter 2012/13 was dismal here, in fact I reckon north Cumbria that winter was one of the least snowiest part of the UK.

We largely missed the snowstorms in January and February and don't even mention March and all the time my friends in the north east were buried.

Contrast that with this winter and while it's not been fantastic I have had lying snow on 12 mornings and the 9cms that fell last Thursday is still on the ground although it's down to 3cms now.

Had the temperature during the last 3 weeks been just 1c lower it would have been a great period of accumulating snow, soooo close.

It does not matter what we experienced in the past, the fact would still remain this cold spell was disappointing snow wise for the NE, the Friday night snowfall was good but sadly the rain washed most of it away by morning and that summed this spell up, just never was good enough.

 

Night time minimum were pretty low at times although I did not see too much in the way of white frost(dew points being much lower than the air temp was the reason why little white frost was seen on Monday morning), it was all rather unremarkable and frustrating. 

 

The only impressive thing was how long the below average temps lasted for but wind direction and PPN did not favor us at all.

Had to travel back from Scarborough this morning. Going over the a171 from Whitby to Guisborough was a nightmare.
