Morning,

Congrats if you’ve read this you made it to 2018 :D

Been a very wet month was December.. potentially double the average for London area & SE England.

Yes - very wet. 

My wettest three days recorded 16mm, 17mm and 19mm.

Very encouraging signs from the models now. It looks odds on a Scandinavian block will form next weekend. This will bring an easterly air flow across our region, which is always better for cold and snow. However, the continent is currently much warmer than average, so we need the block to orientate SW/NE to drag in colder upper air from Scandinavia. The Met Office seem confident we will see some very cold air, so this may be one of the outcomes. It’s certainly the best chance for our patch in a very long time. Many twists and turns to come, but I’m feeling much happier at the moment.

A very Happy and Healthy New Year to everyone!

I think you've hit the nail on the head with the "twists and turns" comment CK. For the first time in ages we stand a great chance of seeing snow showers coming in off the North Sea, but will all the necessary boxes be ticked?! For example, look at this 850hPa temp chart for next Sunday. Peeps up on the NE coast of England and Scotland will be getting lots of lovely snow showers in -9C uppers and a stiff NE'ly, whilst our Region currently looks too close to the Low pressure warm sector with uppers not cold enough. I think we'll be glued to the high res models later in the week as this one develops.

But isn't it great to have some weather to get excited about! :)

Happy New Year!

You’re spot on regarding that low pressure centre, but it does appear to be moving away. I think we’ll all be in the game soon, just not as quickly as our northern neighbours.

Woke up and opened curtains to bright sky and dry underfoot. By the time I got downstairs to put the kettle on it was grey skies and rain, huge fat raindrops *sulk*

Low of 5C in the greenhouse overnight, 7.5C now.

Suppose we are making up for some dry months in Autumn? If temperatures were colder in December, there would have been a lot more snow! 

Another grey and dreary day to come, by the looks of it. Would be nice to have a clear, cold high day over us for a few weeks but that is so rare nowadays, sadly.

I wouldn't mind some cold, as long as we saw some clear skies to go with it - it's this perpetual gloom that is sooo depressing :(

Happy new year to you. If i'm honest, i enjoy this will-it-won't-it game almost as much as i enjoy actually seeing snow, and we've had lots of these scenarios, its been a good winter so far.
