    I have heard from a reliable source that henceforth the European high will be known as 'Prozac Ridge'

    I’m just wondering rather than having model verification stats, we should perhaps have poster verification stats. That way we can see who it’s worth paying attention to and who to disregard.....just a

    Yes, I agree. I wanted snow as much as anyone but along with others was never enthused with this spell. I don't claim any crystal ball or magical abilities, but I can (most of the time) read a chart a

    Looks like this December could crush the previous cloudiest December (2010). Only 9.8 hours of sun so far this month, with 18.5 hours the figure to beat.

    I'd happily take a few dry sunny days over Christmas. 

    Interesting times on the MOD thread, been quite good this season for learning about the more complicated drivers that contribute to cold in the UK, regardless of the frequent posting of random ensemble members at +300000 hours 😂

    If anything, it's served to highlight how many variables need to align around the hemisphere to bring lasting snow to these shores!

    Are you sure it was December 2010 that was the cloudiest. Wasn't that one one of the sunniest on record?

    More optimism again on the Model Chat thread, seems hype is growing for a potentially cold Christmas.

     

    There's even a chance of a cold N/NWrly wind bringing in some snow showers - chance of a few sneaking my way via the Cheshire Gap?  👀

    with all this talk of how similar 2020 has panned out to 2004, it’s funny how we may get a cold northerly bringing snow on christmas day, as did 2004. would hope the rest of winter 2020/2021 pans out colder than 2004/2005 though!

    We need to start a bet on when we predict @Steve Murr will make his return. Assuming the cold charts continue, I say Thursday.

    Mild for now but somehow the bbc is managing to predict snow two weeks in advance for the 27th. Some cold forecast just from Christmas Eve onwards actually ...similar sorts of temperatures we had at the start of the month

    For a lot of country especially west it was super sunny but horrifically dull in London.

    Is there a way to do it on the mobile site? I can do it on PC but not on the mobile?

    That's exactly why i am going for a cold end of winter. i can't remember now - negative is the cold waters in the NE pacific i think?  If it can stop that ridge building which then has a bad impact downstream in the Atlantic.

    It means cooler waters close to the artic and north American coasts in essence, the horseshoe.

    Not a strong link but preferable in my opinion.

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
