    So this is it, the end of winter. Time to look forward to Spring..... Wait, what's this?        Apparently not. So for the time being, we will remain as one for this cold spell. Ple

    Well I'm just looking forward to the first french plume thunderstorm in spring, usually get a Kent clipper around April... Which is only next month! This has been a memorable cold snap and even if it's all gone by the morning I'm sure 90% of this forum have now seen and enjoyed a bit of winter.

    I’ll be sad to see the snow thaw over the weekend, but all good things must come to an end.

    I think we’ll see some more snow this month, with any springlike temperatures a long way off. GFS has been hinting at a snow event as soon as next weekend, so watch this space ❄️❄️

    Watching it die off in north kent, I'd decided thats it as the snow has been dying in the thames, and then building up again just after southend....but wow.....its suddenly built up in front of us, and now giving moderate snowfall! This literally is the last and final fall originating from nothing, so wow, what a week with some complete surprises!!!

    Agree with most of those though I was too young in 1979 or 1981!  Also March 2013 didn't quite deliver for the capital.

    Stand-outs for me were Jan 87, Feb 91 and Feb 09!

    I would add Jan 2013 - was very good for the western part of the region.

     

    I have to agree,  .. Nov/Dec 2010 was another brilliant spell for me.

    My best winter events

    1) Jan 87

    2) Feb 91

    3) Multiple events 79

    4) Dec 10

    5) Feb 09

    6) Feb/Mar 18

    7) Dec 81

    8 ) Mar 13

    Feb 86 was good too, but I was living in the west country then - it was cold but dry everywhere else.

    Half of those in the last 8 years. That’s impressive.  Who said global warming is to blame lol

    It’s been awesome this week guys... literally had everything and I have been glued to the models and this thread ?

    we finally got what we wanted and some of us had been waiting for this for 5 years or more 

    guys that’s it from me for this winter unless we get some more cold from somewhere but it is time for me to actually talk to my friends and family and a female perhaps ?

    Well, some could rightly argue it should be even colder if it weren't for AGW:wink:

    I feel sorry for the people that have suffered because of it but I don't think we should be moaning too much (unless you got none, and then I am truly sorry).

     

    That last paragraph of your post is the best thing I've read for ages..somes up a weather lovers enthusiasm... I'm sorry if you got hurt but I'm truly sorry if you didn't get none... Brilliant.. Storm chasers motto that should be :rofl:

    You're jumping the gun a bit. There will be more snow in March...

    That's a result of us going into the freezer, but yeah.. It is a bit toasty - Has it ever been that high before for the same time?

    I remember the old Ian McCaskill video from 1991 shows the warm temperatures in New York , might have been 1987 anyway one of them check out the video
