Crazy wind last night in Lancashire, though I do live in a village on top of a hill..

Power cuts, no street lights. Actually had to pull over driving as the wipers could not keep up with the rain!

Anyway. Where is the snow at? This has been such a mild December.
Could be some snow on the hills in Lancs later today!

Models are showing potential for a cold spell as we enter January, but no promises.

Interestingly central Siberia has also been suffering a lack of cold/snow for the first time in living memory!

Cypress and so on! It's been mild in Norway, and looks like it will be that way for at least the next week or so. No skiing!

Some say that could be the beginning of the end, or at least plunge the UK into a mini ice age, ah well every cloud and all that.

I maintain that January and February could give us something very special indeed.

The LRF models are starting to hint at some very wintry conditions as we progress through the season. All the cold bottled up in the Arctic has to snap at sometime and when it does, it may be a case of be careful what you wished for.

Didn't you "maintain" they'd be snowy conditions in December?

I think I'll wait for the Met Office predictions.

Chaps, I guess snow for Christmas is unlikely. But, is it actually even going to be cold?

My hopes of a wintry cold Chrismtas day and a lovely coal fire are fading.

Barely even need the heating on at the minute.

ETA - I am in Milton Keynes.

I need to know for Feb as I'm planning a trip to Glasgow and it's 6 - 7 hours on the trains. smile

(To see a DJ, not just a general trip).

schmalex on 16th September on page 4 on this thread said:
Bearing in mind a lot of this is pure conjecture, as the charts are more vague than an MP answering a closed question at this stage, I’m going to go for:

November: Starting mildish, followed by a shortlived cold snap, bringing some transitory snow to the East & North East before turning mildish towards the middle / end of the month, with a pretty normal balance of grey, Atlantic dominated weather.

December: Continuing mildish and grey until about the beginning of the third week and then turning quite a bit colder, with regular snow showers across and occasionally heavy snow across the country (extreme SW excepted). Remaining like this until New Year.

January: Starting off cold, with regular snow showers across the country before warming slightly (still below average, though) during the second week of the month, before the freeze really starts around the 20th or so, where it will turn brutally cold with heavy and frequent snowfalls pretty much everywhere (the normal culprits will obviously see the most white stuff).

February: Remaining brutally cold with frequent heavy snowfalls throughout the month.
I may have been a week early on my thoughts for snow in December, as it's looking more likely it'll come on or around 27th. Sorry. boxedin

You should know. Remember the "reach around"? You said it felt like it went all the way through.

Anyway. Schmalex. I'm sure you've done some selective quoting.

Hope so, purchased winter tyres this year as I missed 5 days of work due to snow and the drifts that come with them. Got pictures if anyones interested.

I will take a frosty Christmas morning right now. Not feeling the driving wind and rain, it's not very festive!
