I'm losing the will to live.  Once again, for those at the back. The main snow risk isn't until 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. The colde

So the cold is almost at an end with a steady thaw expected over the coming days. As such the region will be one again. May I just say that the last week has been a real experience and I must tha

Some people need to grow up. If you want to bicker and snipe do it via PM. Because the rest of us don’t want to know.

Had a nice morning with Colette, at the over 50s club, at our local church. Tea and cake, followed by a guest speaker, on the subject of how to research your family history, on the internet. Arranging for weather presenter, Ian Currie, to conduct a talk about, Frost Fairs, on the Thames, in a few months time.

Regards,

Tom.

Strictly speaking, and as you may know, December 1962, and Jan + Feb 1963. The "big freeze" fizzled out as March got going. 

I know. I was just responding to lassie's wish for nearly three months of a big freeze

Three months of it was great for children but not, i suspect, for adults ... except for the snow geeks. I wuz there.  

I am a snow addict . The child in me would like to say i wuz there for the three months of it.

 The adult side of me would probably want the snow to go after a month of driving around in it.

Not so many cars on the roads in those days. Plenty of people still used bicycles, buses and trains. And walked.  The windows inside the buses were often iced up. The wind whipped in from the beastly east, south east and north east. Take your pick! The coldest days were with a south easterly and leaden skies. The weather forecast at 5.55pm on the home service [now radio 4] quite often had warnings of moderate to heavy snowfalls in various parts of the country, or countrywide.  Totally dream weather for snow fanatics.  Here's a pic of a leaden sky in the South East [Sutton, Surrey], in Jan or Feb 1964, grabbed from the web...

GFS 12z looking very similar to the ICON, I know that many are looking out for spring like weather now and some warmth, but one more cold snap with snowfall could well be on its way after mid month just in time for EASTER.:D

It may not. The ECM seems to have the high too close by for a direct hit. Hopefully for your winter shoes sake it moves the high further north:D

A poster who declared he was gone till next winter, might be back here shortly if these charts keep being churned out.

He’s  already back on the other thread. I’m 75 % sure it won’t happen this time.  ?
