Pleasant day for the most part here, with temperatures up to nearly 10 ¬įC and plenty of sunshine. For once I hope we avoid snow tonight, as someone I know absolutely must travel early tomorrow morning. I can't imagine the roads will be blocked, but it'll be one more thing to worry about.

Solar minimum. Supposedly increases the likelihood of cold winter weather for the UK.

People should be grateful for milder weather. Much better for society as a whole, particularly for the homeless and elderly. Here in the Midlands, this cold spell has lead no water in places, gas supplies running low, schools closed, people stuck in their cars in for over 20 hours. And some behave like 5 year old kids when they see snow falling and have no care for anyone else.

People are equally ungrateful in 30C heat, with no consideration for at risk groups, eveyone has different limits, you simply can't have 'one weather fits all'.

And some are self righteous pr*ks who berate others for having a love of a certain weather type. Yeah, so grateful for the boring dreariness. Never mind that mild weather can be just as inconvenient, miserable and disruptive for some.

Loool. As a whole for society in every possible way, safety being the main thing, this weather is better than last week. No denying that

Well actually these temps have caused burst water pipes, flooding issues as well. Even more issues then last week.

Yep. A slower thaw without added moisture from rain would have caused less issues. I despise mild winter weather for walking, photography and weather interest. It is rotten. I give people who hate cold weather as much sympathy as they give me in mild winter weather - None :D

Already bored with this milder weather. Don't understand people cheering the prospect of mild weather at this time of year. It's not real warmth. It's not like it's 20 degrees+ and sunny. It's 7 degrees and dreary. 

When this dude moans about milder weather no one cares. When I moan about cold weather everyone jumps on me. The cold bias is ridiculous

Mymum is 83 and hates mild damp weather really affects her joints.  Born in 1934 she lived through 47 63 and says 80s was nothing.  Always happy when it snows and cold like myself.  Better prep is needed.  Still cannot understand bust pipes not record bresking cold may be better infrastrcture.  Wet leads to flooding like 2007.  Lot more destructive
