Continuing to see pressure rises to the east in the medium term but the problem remains the precise the precise postion and orientation of the trough in the eastern Atlantic.

Spring warmth still being held at bay for the foreseeable it seems. 

Cannot wait for a dry warm spell, and to leave the coat and brolly at home for a while. Hopefully, we'll get lucky with an early and long summer. Need it after what feels like a never-ending winter.

I suspect many more people will be booking foreign holidays if the current weather persists all year.. wet, cool summers are never good for the UK tourism industry (or anything else really).

If it were dry and warm now we would be getting those saying we were using up all the nice days now and were destined for a poor summer. Luckily no one knows what this year will bring.

I agree :clap:its a waiting game in the summer to see if the weather paterns will shift into a more summery  scenario..It does eventually as we head into september but then its all to late. Hopefully  spring this year  is our summer set up of recent years. where we are waiting for good weather to appear. June and July will be september and october of the last decade :pardon:

Really? Interesting. I wonder, if summer 2018 is wet and cool, it will be followed by a mild winter like 2011-2012, or 2007-2008.

Only problem with warm rain,the slugs are back already argggggg !  , cant believe I found one on my kitchen floor tiles today, :cc_confused: its never happened before , the patio doors where shut , I think it sneaked up the plug hole from the waste pipe ,  the stuff of nightmares ...or less likely the tiny gap where the pipe exits  

I am mortified   , full bottle of bleach down the plug hole and the rubber plug stays in too !  , just in case, tiny gap will get sealed tomorrow, and a few pellets sprinkled    :rofl:

What makes you think that based on 1962? That Summer was followed by the coldest Winter in over 200 years. 2007 was followed by a mild Winter, but on the other hand 2012, which was similar wasn't. Not that I think that we will have much clue about how next Winter might play out until late Autumn at least and at this point it's anybody's guess. The same applies to the coming Summer aswell, which could turn out any which way yet as far as I'm concerned. I would prefer a warm sunny one though as you can make more use out of it then, plus they look better than grey and rainy ones. But I don't tend to mind too much really how Summer turns out compared to Winter I have to say. Plus the fact all types of Summers have preceded all types of Winters, so I don't tend to believe that one type would necessarily lead to a certain type of Winter anyway.

1976, 1983, 1989, 2006 and 2013 all had horror starts to spring, in some cases with winter extending into March or even April.

 

They all had warm/hot, and in most cases sunnier than average summers.

Indeed, 2006 was marginally colder than this year to the end of March and ended up being the warmest year on record at the time (since beaten by 2014).

Gawd it is April, spring and yet a fair number are still hankering after something cold. I can't wait to get 20C and be able to sit in the garden and feel pleasantly warm. Much better than dashing out to the bin or giving the fish a quick feed. Winter is fine in winter but NOT from now on. I'll accept a 36-48 hour cold northerly but please no more damn winds from off the N Sea.

John...

Interested in your fish.. I assume you mean outside?.

I have just started feeding mine since the cold moved away at the weekend. 

They seem quite hungry.

I am watching for another cold spell, as to feed them when the temp is below 10C  (when they will accept it!) is considered to be not good for them.

This year they have not been fed since early November. It is the longest period they  have been without being fed.

They still seem very healthy.  (7 quite large Koi, together with  assorted Rudd, Blue and Golden Orfe, a well as the kids goldfish and Shubunkins (from indoor tanks!)  and Tench (blue and golden). I used to have dace but I think they have all died off now!

I have them in 3 interconnecting ponds with continuous circulation via a home made pond filter (an old cast iron bath!) , and a lot of them are over 20 years old, with the real old-timers over 30 now.  I have to keep them 'netted' because the Herons are rife around here.

Might not be very warm here yet but what a change it makes to wake up and see blue skies and the sun streaming in. I feel like I’m betraying my winter loving heart

A little bit of spring warmth would be most welcome now and well overdue 😁

      A busy spell coming up, as the beast from the east arrives.
      As the focus of the model thread is often a bit further ahead, for those wanting to talk more exclusively about the shorter term outputs, we do have a short-range thread up and running. (You're still welcome to discuss the shorter term in here too though).
      This thread is all about discussing the models - but we have loads of other options for other topics:
      As always, please keep it to the models in here, and head over to the banter thread for any moans, ramps and general chat.
      For threads related to the cold spell, met office forecasts, the winter overall and much more on top, please take a look at the general weather forum:
      https://www.netweather.tv/forum/forum/1-winter-and-general-weather-discussion/
      And finally, if you're wanting to chat about your local weather, the risk of snow in your particular location etc, then the regional threads are for you:

      Ooh yes, it's busy and with good reason - it's a rare beast to see the sort of charts we're seeing right now. It would appear the UK and much of Europe is headed into the freezer, but how cold, and for how long?
      As always, please keep to just discussing the model output in this thread.
      We have a thread open to discuss the cold spell - so if you're wanting to chat more generally about it, or talk about forecasts from the BBC, Met Office, Netweather etc, please head over there:
      https://www.netweather.tv/forum/topic/89358-ssw-related-cold-spell-will-it-wont-it/
      It's also worth keeping an eye on is the blogs from our team including @Jo Farrow & @Nick Finnis, there's some great info about the SSW, the cold spell etc, and new articles will be posted regularly:

      The much talked about SSW has taken place, but as Nick blogged about a few days ago, it doesn't always mean cold for the UK. The signs are good though (if you like cold that is), and the model output is showing a lot of northern blocking currently. It's set to be a really interesting time to follow the models if nothing else, so please carry on the discussion here. 
      As ever, please keep it to model discussion only in this thread.....
