    Perhaps we should ban all model charts beyond T+120 hours. We could then go back to the 70-80's and actually watch weather forecasts from professionals. Probably not believing them anyway and happy to

    Unusually for me, I'm not even longing for snow and I LOVE snow. Just want heat and the sun back. Maybe I'm still traumatised from being a hermit for a week during Beast from the East!

    The 1990s weren't anything special. I'm not sure why you keep coming out with this. Sure the last few years has been a poor run, but on average here:

    Winter Index:

    1990s: 57.0
    2000s: 48.3
    2010s: 68.9

    Days of sleet/snow falling:

    1990s: 11.8
    2000s: 11.9
    2010s: 11.7

    Days of Snow lying at 0900:

    1990s: 5.8
    2000s: 3.6
    2010s: 7.6

    Winter months more than 1C below average:

    1990s: 2
    2000s: 2
    2010s: 5

    Winter mean temp:

    1990s: 4.77C
    2000s: 5.08C
    2010s: 4.69C

    The 2010s are almost unanimously better, despite the last few years being poor. Sure, 2010-2013 heavily weigh up the 2010s, but 1991, 1996 and 1997 did the same in the 1990s.

    Gotta agree. All this potential.........

    Yes colder air in the mix at times with snow for more northern area's(mostly hills and mountains) but central northen England south,cold rain to most area's.

    Thats my take on a mix of the big three.

    The biggest problem is the Canadian lobe......again. We never really see a true clean seperation of lows been spawned from there and phasing of the ne/sw sliding lows don't benefit most of us.

    Potential is t144+ away for me......again.

    My only hope is a quick flip at say 72hrs or so away,because things become diluted for snow as time ticks down on the mods.

    yep, just not going to fall right for us this year. although conditions this morning are lethal outside, light rain onto frozen pavements equals a very dangerous walk on the school run. ,lol

    Are you sure about the 90's winter months of at least 1c below average? that doesn't add up. I live in Essex and have winter records going back to 1983, off my head I can think of at least 6 (maybe more) 90's winter months that were in that category: Dec 1990, Feb 1991, Dec 1995, Feb 1996, Dec 1996 and January 1997 so I'm sure if Essex had these cold months that Hebdon did in Yorkshire too. Could also scrutinise 2010's 1c below - to my knowledge only Jan and Feb 2010 and Dec 2010 have made the grade (so 3 in all) and Hadley Centre backs this up!

    The winter mean average temp for '2010''s undoubtedly skewed by the very cold month of December 2010...on the whole I would say the 90's in more southern Britain undoubtedly were cooler than 2010's but there will be variations around our Isles.

    I was born in 1987 and I remember the 90s being pretty rubbish for snow on the whole. I think the past decade has been much better.

    I believe he is quoting his own personal figures.. as you say, there is bound to be variation. Essex can very well have colder months than places up north, at least relative to average - indeed many parts of the SE were colder than here in months like Jan 1963, Jan 1987 etc. Easterlies often deliver colder weather down there than they do up here due to your closer proximity to the continent.

    Jan 2013 was almost 1C below average in England, and of course March 2013 was very cold.

    Yes I know...still seem to be a lot of discrepancies. So his argument (reef) is based on Yorkshire v Staffordshire then (I remember Atlantic 252) as he is remarking that 90's were better as per top of the page, not that much distance between them maybe elevation thing?...on the other side of the coin he seems to have experienced  more 2010's 1c below average months then down in my neck of the woods as I've only recorded 3. By the way Jan 2013 was only 0.3c below normal.

    But as mentioned no doubt regional variations but I'd say from my experience the 90's have been slightly better than the 2010's which had a number of cold months clustered (2010).

    Im not sure why people get criticised for calling it like it is, what are we supposed to say, that it has been an absolutely magnificent winter and 100% will give us even 'more' snow that we have had?
