So the EWP has rapidly increased to 97 mm by 16th (adding a record 28 mm on the 15th) and the outlook suggests at least 25 mm more to end of the month, so new expected finish is around 125 mm. Only two guesses were higher than that, one of which needs an outcome of 320 mm to win the month. A real contender for the rare double win is Robbie Garrett at 6.4 and 122 mm.

Watch for the March thread to open by tomorrow morning, as I will work on it this evening my time.

Already the wettest February since 2014, which is no surprise and there have been only 4 wetter Februarys since and including 2000.

 

6th wettest for our records and can only go up in the rankings although the wettest ever I think is fairly safe.

Still on 5.8C +1.5C above normal. Rainfall 121.4mm 202% of the monthly average. Some wet days to come so could end up our 2nd wettest Feb on record.

Nottingham ( Watnall) by the end of the 18th had had a staggering 101mm of rainfall against an end of month average in Feb of 47mm

That means the rainfall % if it stayed dry is already over 200% for the whole month (and we all know stay dry it isn’t !)

There must be a good chance of a top 5 wettest Feb across the country

Sunny Sheffield still at 5.8C +1.5C above normal. Rainfall 124.9mm 207.8% of the monthly total.

The month the 5th wettest on record for us.

I could pretty much score the EWP today although there is some uncertainty about which forecasts will be first and second with the current estimate around 130 mm at end of month ... these are the only forecasts we had over 100 mm (and under 500 mm) ...

135 mm ProlongedSnowLover

122 mm Robbie Garrett

120 mm Godber1^,Dr(S)No^^^

112.8 mm Kirkcaldy Weather

101 mm MrTOAD

100 mm Igloo, Mulzy

_____________________________________

^ day(s) late

The scoring order will be somewhat different due to those late penalties, in particular the three day late assessment will probably drop Dr(S)No down to a similar score to the 100 mm forecasts. 

Will post the updated annual scoring table for top twenty or so in a few days.

I've heard the complete opposite and that spring in Europe will be warmer than average. Though I have checked my forecast for where I am in the southeast and it does seem to be getting colder and some snow is forecast  for the first time this year .

A warming trend is not happening everywhere then. This needs to taken into account.

December 5.8.

January 6.4.

February 6.3(?)

would this winter get into the top 20 mildest?

Mr Data?

Would rank 10th.

CET: 6.17C.

Sandwiched between 1795/96 (6.20C) and 1934/35 (6.13C).

Winter 1795/96 is an interesting one because 1794/95 ranks fifth-coldest and contained the coldest month on the record. Some swing from one year to the next.

It is taken into account....the problem is people take stats like this as proof that the planet isn't warming. Even in a warming climate, some areas will be cold - that's just how our planet works.

As Simon Lee stated, most of the pronounced warming is occurring in places like the Arctic - away from major population centres, so is perhaps missed to a degree. If it ain't in my back yard it ain't true sort of thing.
