Spring 2019 - Moans, Ramps, Chat etc

Recommended Posts

The difference between summer 2011, 1st half of summer 2016 and summer 07 being in a cloudy, cool westerly flow to slack low pressure overhead which at least gives sunshine whilst torrential downpours also.

I appreciate that,your area had the only real Winter weather this year. But much of that sodden earth is just that,the water levels are still to low. I don't want a washout,far from it,but a balance would be in my opinion a more favourable outcome.

If we have a dry spring,which is normally the driest time of the year but I suspect we`ll get a cold wet or snowy spring just hope we don`t get a summer like last year,never seen the ground so dry for this time of year.

Fingers crossed the rain will come and no repeat of last year,that could be very hard both for wildlife and business that relies on a normal Summer.

Hoping for a warm and sunny spring with thundery outbreaks now and again.  Been quite damp here recently so no problems with water levels.

If we could drag this current high even in this position surprising how cold it would get.

What kind of airmass was that though?

A surface cold easterly with freezing fog at night, started as a warm Sly aimass though.

Wouldn't take much of an adjustment to have a chillier spell of weather.  May well change into the start of March but I think for the rest of February we can expect to see some lovely spring-like weather.

Any cold would probably be shortlived in such a setup, as it was in 2008. Temperatures recovered very well that month after a colder spell mid-month with some very cold nights.

I can't really see a setup like this developing anyway this month- the Atlantic was a lot less active in 2008 and with those deep lows to our west it's going to be hard to get a setup like that one.

I remember Feb 1998 when it hit 18C. I drove around with the window down with my arm out of window. Amazing.  I usually hate winter (apart from heavy snow), but this winter has seemed quite tame. Very dry and now incredibly mild. It really is just a game of chance. My brother in the US has had weeks of sub zero temps and the schools there in Nebraska started off issuing snow days but it has lasted so long they have given up and called the kids in, even during a recent day of -20C wind chill and heavy snow. We  live in a world of extremes. Just so happens this year is our trim for extreme dry and mild.
