    Well a few weeks ago we had "1962/63 didn't start until xmas so chill out".......I'm guessing the 1947 excuse will be wheeled out soon? "it didn't start until 3rd week of Jan." :help:

    Anyway I'm going to enjoy xmas now, have a good one all. :santa-emoji:

    I'm 40 years old and live in central England  and I can honestly say I can't remember a white Xmas in my lifetime , why would this year be anything different. Our winters traditionally start after December and go well into March when the jet stream tends to calm down. 2010 was definitely the exception to the norm but I'm sure the new year will bring lots of opportunity.

    Let's hope so but I'm not getting my hopes up too much. I'm 67 this year coming up so quite a bit older than yourself. I've seen some amazing cold and snow events in my life time including 1962/63. But even years ago our climate was often a bit disappointing for snow because of the Atlantic and the prevailing westerly wind which has always been a thorn in the side of a "coldie" in this country, there was always long spells of mild weather in between the colder Winters.

    Just a reminder if you are serving up 'Greeny Highs' tomorrow as a side dish, or even the main agenda, it's imperative they are not overcooked

    Over cooked , it's positively falling off the bone :D

    Nothing wrong with a bit excitement,let's face it there's been nothing to shout about for coldies so far,however many of us have been here before with the old Atlantic ridge and the main jet running over the top.

    This is what would excite me

    I don't think we are anywhere in that ball park currently.

    Theirs a possibility that the ecm could produce that within the next few runs,i hope:santa-emoji:

    Yep nothing unusual about January turning colder, what with the lag effect in our climate. December isn't normally a proper Winter month anyway, bar exceptions like 2010. Just like June isn't normally the hottest Summer month despite the most daylight. And September temps can often feel more Summer like than Autumn.

    I certainly don't expect anything special this winter. It's another familiar tale of the pot of gold being dangled at day 10 only for this to be watered down to nothing! This sums up the last 24 hours on the models, sorry, last 6 years actually!

    I thought that back a few weeks back but look where we ended up.  

    Anyway, lots of the big guns in the mod thread a minute or two ago. Good to see a sensible discussion going on.  

    Maybe, ( there 'could be something brewing' ) may be more appropriate.  

    IMO, better than there 'isn't anything brewing'.  IYFMD... drift (drifting) get it?

     

    Night all.....

    Nice looking winter charts to start 2017 for those looking for snow and near freezing temperatures. The first chart from UKMO (N Atlantic view ) at168t in the almost reliable time span shows the front clearing the south coast of England and a colder arctic sourced air mass covering much of the British Isles, maybe with a disturbance running along the Channel/ N France. Later chart from ECM at 240t shows cold air established well south into Western Europe with a nice Mid Atlantic block. GFS at the same time  shows polar disturbances starting to form and head towards the Britsh Isles with a slightly flatter Mid Atlantic block , resulting in a cut off of the cold supply for a while before a renewed Arctic attack again well south into Western Europe, but that's a long way off. Overall pleasing charts for most this morning and getting closer to a reliable time period for coming off !

    Many many positives on the horizon at last,something to cheer us up after a awful December. Love the way some folk just dismiss any move towards cold,bit odd in my opinion as some are senior members on the forum who should know better.
