That was a cold snap? Seriously? That weak and feeble northerly? Oh dear. Fail.

If it was July 2nd would you give up on 30c....or listen to summers over...don't read to much into remarks of :bad: were not even half way through yet;)

No because I actually reach 30C more than I get days of snow on the ground!

Not much joy in the models this morning. The evil Azoroslug is still deflecting any chance of even northerly topplers even getting near the UK

The only bit of hope is that eventually the thing might ridge up towards Greenland and actually block off the Atlantic in a favourable way, but that won't be until April no doubt!

Thinking 4 years of no appreciable snow is now a dead cert. Fast becoming bored with having to heat the house for a covering of frost! Summer is quickly establishing itself as my favourite season. Even a poor summer brings 30c here on more than one occasion. 

Models are just dull to look at in the reliable at the moment. Anything past 240+ is just a waste of time.

Haven't we only had 1 sub 3c January in the past 20 years - though Jan 2013 came close? 

So a proper cold Jan is no better than a 1 in 10 event these days?

Think we have to temper our expectations with the reality of the warming background pattern and diminishing arctic ice to the north of us.

Thats actually a great post gustywind.In all seriousness i think the bar needs to be lowered, i stand by my belief that weather patterns are cyclical but until we see a run of cold snowy winters and break out of this snowless cycle or at least establish what is causing it ( i dont know it may well be GW) then i agree that  expectations ought to be downgraded...

I might get some light drizzle tomorrow. Oh the excitement.

Mid Winter or not, if  the Netweather tech guys and gals want to service the servers, now would be a good time as nothing will be happening weather wise for the next week or two.

I see the ethos of the other thread is once again being trumpeted. It runs along the lines of, if a forecast is made for the right reasons which are commensurate with current scientific understanding then goes wrong, it is ridiculed. If on the other hand one is made for all the wrong reasons and by some  fluke on rare occasions is near the money then trumpets ring out and instinct is once again hailed as the God. It wouldn't be the first time I've wondered whether this is a scientific forum.

Look how close we get to the deep cold, it's just so frustrating:nonono:

It is, innit? Just as frustrating of watching all our summer thunderstorms reinvent themselves just the other side of the channel...

That said, I suspect we'd be less susceptible to bouts of self-harm if we payed more attention to what the anomaly charts are showing?:D

Iapenell should just put a statement out in the MOD  and put everyone out of their misery. NO LENGTHY COLD SPELL OR NATIONWIDE SNOWFALL THIS WINTER, PLEASE MOVE ALONG. Although he hasn't been that accurate, his theme of no major cold holds strong.
