Today really is the day of the coldies isn't it? Sounds like people are just bitter because they're not getting the cold icy winter of their wet dreams. I mean come on, you have to be feeling pretty crap to be insulting people over their temperature preferences.

10c may feel mild, but the temp can change quickly, and a mild day in winter can sometimes feel colder when conditions(more cloud, windchill)change.

True, but it's not really scarf and gloves weather currently.

What the hell wrong with the general public.Went to Brighton seafront yesterday afternoon,it was about 10c and sun out,so felt warm,I was walking with just t shirt no coat,yet most other people were walking about with gloves ,coats,scarves,hoods done up,and not even cold.

Unbelievable!

Don't people look at weather forecasts anymore? ,or just ignorant.

Heaven forbid we actually get a bitter outbreak this winter with sub zero temps,how on earth will they ever cope.

Snowflake generation,now!

Rant-over!

Indeed @SLEETY on my recent mosey on down to Lidl (in tee-shirt & Jeans) I noticed the very same phenomenon!:oldlaugh:

PS: I couldn't care less what the weather is supposed to be, or is meant to be; or, even to what the date is...Only to what it (the weather) is!:oldgrin:

Yet when we see coldies suffer in 20°C "heat" that's not being a "snowflake". 🙄 My God.

Here's some advice: If you see someone wearing clothes you wouldn't wear just because you have a different temperature preference, just ignore it and go about your way instead of trying to make yourself feel better by putting people down. And happy new year. 🙄

To be fair, heat lovers would be moaning on the final day of June had it had been a cool/wet month and the outlook for July was also very poor for warm weather.

You will find we all have different thermometers and also depends what we are doing.Generally those like yourself can stand the cold but I bet on a calm hot day in summer you cannot cope.I personally struggle with cold and always have done since being a kid and I was brought up on a pennine hill at over 300 metres but if I go on a run in the depths of winter I feel mad and frozen setting off in shorts and a long sleeved shirt,hat and gloves but a mile further I am stripping off to bare chest with just shorts and trainers.My nephew wears a thin long sleeved shirt and it doesn't matter wether it is -10 deg or 30 deg in summer,he wears the same.We are all different!

yes, and i think the phrase "each to their own" is apt. There's nothing wrong with anyone, we all feel temperature differently. so i agree Hillbilly, "we are all different" 🙂

So yes, this winter has been boring so far and the outlook isn't good. 

However, I've known a few winters where we've got this far without even a single frost...And we've certainly had a few this year so far.

So a very tiny crumb of comfort for you there.

Happy New Year.

(The predictive text on my phone wanted to say "crumb of thunder", I quite like that!)

I can’t wait for the return of plus 24c type days, just so I can rub it in. If the temps are hovering around 21c I can still wear a light jacket.

10c is not t shirt weather. Please get a grip!

Seriously what on earth are you going on about?...I was referring to the coldest day in Northern India for over a century, how do you reply like this? (maybe the left overs of the Xmas Sherry).

I like how the media conveniently seems to ignore the cold spell India, while constantly banging on about the fires in Australia.

They won't put that on the BBC headline news page but decide to continue with Australia (which always seems to be in the news every summer due to heat/bush fires). According to the BBC page the other day every state was experiencing 40c but I delved further into this on some websites and this wasn't the case...hhmmmm.

I think Australia's wildfire situation is more serious than a maximum of 9.4C. Although they still wrote a significant article on it.

I wonder if increased smog is sometimes causing lower maxima there.

Edit: it's Wikipedia but apparently that is suspected to be the case https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delhi#Air_pollution (bottom of first paragraph on air pollution)

My apologies. I was quoting mr ‘snowflake generation’ guy, but quoted you by mistake lol.

Btw, I don’t drink Sherry. I’m only 43, that’s an old timers tipple 🤣

A new provisional maximum temperature of 18.7c was recorded at Achfary, Scotland on the December 28th

If validated it will be the highest December temperature on record

That may actually sound incredible even to me but at a second glance you have to look on a map and see exactly where that is.It is very close to the coast in the very far north west just a stones throw from Cape Wrath which holds 3 of the daily December maximums for the UK.You have to compare it with places like the outer Hebrides and the West of Ireland which have a climate way different to inland where temps are much more consistant for much of the year.Some places in West Ireland havnt had snow or frost for 50 years am guessing it wont be too different in North west Scotland on the coast.Shetlands temp today is 8 deg and when London is basking in temps in the high 20s Shetland is often in the low teens and sometimes single figures,not a great difference all year around.

Here are the averages of snow lying days from 1981 to 2010. Even right on the coast they do get some snow days, albeit nothing like inland. They are also prone to high temperatures at time particularly in winter with the foehn effect.
