Its a bit early for this thread, thought you said next week was going to improve in the south east?
Recently I checked when last year's winter thread commenced ....11th September ,so we're 9 days later than 2017.

I did ask Puggit to leave it till 1st October but this'll do......biggrin

Reports of falling snow on Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and Snowdonia last night. That's spectacularly early.

Blimey. That is early for the dales. I’m on the eastern edge, chilly (lows around 3/4) and cloudy, but nothing resembling snow yet.

Cold front passing tomorrow, mind.

Where are they reporting the snow?

woohoo Winter baby.

What are the weather crystals suggesting about this winter? Snowmaggedon? Hope its not the dreary and wet one we had last year.
Well some of the more clickbaity "news" sites are claiming 'The Beast from the East' could return next month, but I'd give you 20/1 they're acurate.

Also dreary and wet? Did you sleep though Feb and March? We were balls deep in snow and 'enjoying' some seriously low temps.

Last winter and summer were like a Daily Mail readers idea of what the past was like, bitter cold and snow, a 2 week spring and then wall to wall sunshine and high temps for months.
Indeed!

it was bloody marvellous biggrin

He normally predicts 100 days of winter, this year only 50. That's global warming for you.

How lovely it has been this last few days, more rain than the whole summer it seems.

As for winter predictions, having looked at the tea leaves and imagined what bit of dried out seaweed on the stick might look like...

With no knowledge or evidence at all, I reckon we are in for a repeated onslaught of Atlantic lows and a bit of fog in November.

I have just bought a set of all seasons tyres therefore I can comfortably predict that it will not drop below 20c all winter.

That's what I'd expect too. Let's see what happens!

Plenty of tropical storms in the Atlantic again at the moment too. Always adds a bit more fun when they hitch a ride on the jet stream.

Please not another winter like last year, which was basically just an Autumn storm that didn't stop blowing for 6 months.

I broke door check straps on 4 different works vehicles last winter.

Excellent, this thread is here! Just checking in.

As usual, I am hoping for snow despite the fact it makes prosthetics impossible and the wheelchair a pain in the ass hehe
