Don’t know about climate change but I wish the weather would change.

Plain old day today and rather pleasant...but a bit stormy in here it would seem, winter has shown its face it would appear there are a few snowflakes about after all.

Apologies for posting about climate change I had no idea it wasn't allowed...what else isn't allowed for future reference.

Politics, sex and violence are areas to be wary of.  So say all you like about the drizzle and all is well.  I've not tried saying anything about football recently so it's hard to say what the score is here.

WTF is winter hiding?

Milder day in theory at a max of 6c but the brisk wind made it feel anything but, distinctly baltic feeling...

Dry though and long spells of hazy sunshine.

Plenty people enjoying a bracing walk around Castle Fraser, grass definitely got that lush spring look to it; its been a strange winter so far.

Don't mention the climate. Tell you what though, retraining as a flood defence engineer might come in handy. Also becoming self-sufficient in essential food and electricity will be good for when the merde hits the rotating air circulator.

Happy New Year Everyone.

The weather here has been mostly cloudy, dull with temperatures staying on the mild side but it did get down to 0.0c on New Years Eve.

All get together and find a way to destroy the PV, looks like it wants to try and go the full 12 rounds this winter 😂 Though some tantalizing hints from GP....

Dreadful here, heavy rain blustery winds 9 C about as far away from wintry as you can get.

Seems like you’ve tried to fight the machine HC... never goes down well 😉

I remember the days when we could have a general chat in here and we also had the politics thread(s), it’s a shame they’ve smothered all of that.

 

And aye, weather is also pure pish. Nothing to add

Yes, but of course climate and politics are inseparable for now. General chat won't sort it.

In my view, NW needs to sort out the subjective seeds of doubt posted regularly on here together with blatant denier videos/posts.  That is, if it wishes to remain a credible weather and climate site.

Well put. No platform for dissemblers.

@CatchMyDrift - find a photo subject to work on and keep us all sane.

December mean temp for Scotland was 4.1 C - other years with 4.1 C December - 1991, 1977, 1932 "1932-33: Late October, snow fell in Scotland, an early start to the skiing season! Late February there was a Great Blizzard, for Ireland, Wales, South West England, Northern England, and the Midlands. Whipsnade recorded 2ft of snow, Harrogate and Huddersfield 30 inches, Buxton 28 inches! Very Snowy." 

"1977-78: Mid January, 6 foot drifts! A week later, and 4 inches fell. Mid February saw 4 inches also. Late January, heavy snow in Scotland, drifting, 28 inches falling in parts! Mid February (see above) was very snowy in the North East, East and South West. February 11th had 1 ft in Durham and Edinburgh. Feb. 15-16th South West England, blizzard with huge drifts, sounds like my cup of tea!"

Scotland East 3.7 C - other years - 2004, 1984, 1977

2004/05- "Westerlies continued during January with the only notable snow event being another NW'ly incursion on the 18th, with big but brief snowstorms over Northern Ireland and south-west Scotland.

February was another fairly mild month with frequent anticyclonic north-westerly regimes. There was a northerly blast around the 13th, but as the Arctic was unusually warm, there was little in the way of snow; however a rather more potent northerly occurred on the 19th/20th with snow showers in the northeast. The last third of February and early March had persistent easterly winds and snow showers, but generally limited accumulations on the ground. Inland parts of south-east Scotland, north-east England and Kent, however, often had significant accumulations. Overall this easterly spell disappointed many snow lovers."  

"1984-85: Very cold and snowy, especially in Southern England.  Early January, there was snow in Eastern England. Mid January, East Anglia and Kent getting the goods, with 6 inches falling here. Mid January, South West England and South Wales (yippee!). Late January seeing snow in Scotland, and the prone spots, such as Aviemore, getting 2ft of level snow, Northern Britain as a whole affected though. Mid February, Southern England, 6-12 inches, substantial drifting taking place. 29th March gave Scotland snow. A memorable year. Snowy."

Scotland North 3.9 C - other years- 2005, 1977, 1932

2005/06 "Not much snow to speak of during January and February (the late February '06 easterly was even less potent than the Feb '05 one), but this changed into March. A northerly airstream during first week March brought snow showers for many, with 50cm in northeast Scotland and thundersnow widely reported around Aberdeen. More heavy snowfalls on the 12th March, which especially affected western Britain. Further snow in early April, with heavy snowstorm in north-east England on the 8th, and in south-east England late on the 9th."

Surely no coincidence that both 1932 and 1977 keep showing up ( I am pretty sure these years came up when I did the analogue charts for ENSO back in September will check that when I have more time but going by those years something possibly brewing for late January and February? )
