2˚C at 7.30, frost on car roof, initially still and overcast but by 9 the sun was out full on and the cold E値y sea breeze started up, so max temp was only 14˚ but it was a fabulous sunny day all the same, 6˚ at 8pm under a clear sky, feels like frost may come again.

winter is slowly making headway and asserting its self, esp at night when CO2 just doesnt seem to work as they say it ought,and temps drop to 3deg after highs of 18/19...cloudy nights do keep it warmer so maybe at night co2 changes color and form..haha, they really are nuts. must be embarrassing to be a believer in carbon, as the source of globalwarming and climate change. surely winter temps ought to be much higher cos thats when we produce the most co2 to keep warm. oh well.

7˚C at 7.30, bright but cloudy to begin with, along with a cold NE値y wind again, brightening up soon enough to give us yet another blazingly sunny day, brilliant but for the wind.

Paddy No signs of a late spring yet in NW London. The Welsh Onions and Wild Lupins have emerged from their winter slumbers and are growing happily in the first week of March. The rhubarb is also growing, although of course nowhere near picking yet. Daffodils poked out in time for St Davids Day (my mother is of course Welsh). Bud formation is starting on the fruit trees, of course nowhere near opening up yet. We've had an 'early and late rain' autumn/winter here: plenty of rain in November and December; very little in January and much of February, some good downfalls the last two weeks so the ground is nice and moist again. 1990 was a very cool and snowy April in Switzerland.

Just out of interest, there was an even wilder storm 2 weeks later with winds of 246kph recorded at Jungfraujoch, trees blocked the railway between Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen and we basically cut off in the village resort for 2 days as no transportation mechanisms could operate.

Some snow is expected on one pass in S Is to 800m so may be cooler.Watched a Hawk yestdy trying to fly against the wind ,.just rose vertical till abt 200m then got blown backwards.

Glenn - you need to take a more global perspective on snowfalls and ask whether other parts of the world have been getting rather a lot of it in 2022. Try going and looking at Japan for a start - they are the UK's oriental equivalent, even though their mountains are much higher: a distinct island group off the edge of the Eurasian mainland. Alaska has lots of snow, so does the NE USA. Sochi ski resort north of the Black Sea has had plenty and the Alps is certainly not doing badly, particularly in more eastern areas. This link shows how global snow cover looks: https://climate.rutgers.edu/snowcover/chart_daily.php?ui_year=2022&ui_day=42&ui_set=2 - excess snow in Central China, less snow in USA and Europe.

Thanks Craig, so the warm period was certainly warm to grow grapes 50 N as your climate in uk is colder than ours down here and we grow grapes as far as 47 S . 50 deg is off the country... we had another sticky nite with the temp briefly below 20 now up again with a cloud blanket and rain still forecast for later with drizzle earlier.

Paddy/Claude not surprisingly I did a post on the subject " cultivation of the vine and on wine making in England, particularly in the Middle Ages when many vineyards were maintained in central, southern and eastern England south of about 53ーN, since consideration of them has been used (LAMB 1965) in deriving information about the temperatures then prevailing...Their northern limit parallels but lies about 500 km farther north than the modern limit of commercial vineyards in France and Germany. The success of the English vineyards in the period from about A.D. 1100 to 1310 was such that the French trade sought to have them abolished under an early treaty of peace with England.. Some of these vineyards were, in fact, operated for several hundred years, though decline set in and very few new ones were started after 1310." === https://weatheraction.wordpress.com/2020/09/20/the-english-medieval-vineyards/

As for winter, the deep cold is tantalisingly close but remains out of reach for now. However remember how set the models had been on cold for Christmas until the sun became very active and threw a major spanner in the works and set us up with that excessively warm NYE/NYD. That active region is on its way back round and we have a full moon on the 17th some solar/lunar forcing, which models do not account for, may nudge the cold our way via activating the Atlantic.

The winter of 1947 started around the 25th January. There is still time for really hard cold winter. Let's just wait?

Fred - there are two components to the 'brutal winters' you talk about: firstly the heavy snowfall and then the colder temperatures. It's well known that the heaviest snowfall comes when you have the moistest warmer air hitting a solid bloc of cold air. Or, in the case of lake-effect snow around the Great Lakes, when cold dry winds pass over large bodies of still warm water. So I wouldn't be surprised at seeing the heaviest snowfalls coming during positive AMO phases, as that is when low pressure systems are likely to pick up the maximum moisture from the Atlantic Ocean. Maybe what's important is what causes high pressures to establish close to the western edge of Eurasia? Are there similar phenomena around Japan and are their timings different to those around the UK?

I don't know about that Fred. The heat capacity of the oceans is about 1000 times greater than that of the atmosphere. A little nudge ( in either direction) from this vast store of thermal energy will affect the troposphere in an assymetric fashion.

down here we are having a warm spell up to23/4 daytime and only down to 16 at night due to the fluffy blanket of cloud. the forecast shws yesterday showed on the radar but never reached the ground...have stumbled onto the Electric Universe site and rather suspect they are right that the sun is changing our weather. we too used to get snow every May on the central plateau till the mid 80s when it suddenly stopped and the treerings show it. certainly isnt CO2. and i remember seeing a sunspot one evening so large we could see it just by squinting.if science could bring themselves to be honest and humble enough to look at other less entrenched ideas they would come up with the answer but sadly Egos have blocked their vision and so they flail around getting nowhere close to understanding why anymore."None is so blind as he who will not see."

Glenn - the 1980s were normal for the 1980s. The 1970s were almost completely snowless where I lived - less than 100 miles SW of you, in NW London. You need to consider that the 1980s were not 'normal', they were just a run of 8 or 9 very cold and snowy winters. They were followed by 3 years of most unusual winters, with huge high pressures covering the whole of the European continent for weeks on end. Far be it for me to say that those unusual winters coincided with a triple conjunction of large planets...

Tony - the AMO. We have very warm waters. The winters of 60s-80s had a cold AMO. Being an island with a vast swathe of water beside us influences our weather. The AMO is due to flip to a cold cycle circa 2027. It doesn't mean we can't have cold winters but they are less likely. Besides this winter isn't done yet.

It looks like I was right about February 2021 being the last time it's ever going to snow in Norfolk. This is another winter to add to the list since 1988. What had happened to our winter climate? In the 1980s before 1988 when things were normal we had snow every single winter in Norfolk.

snow still lying from yesterday morning's fall, but with standard models showing a prolonged run of SW winds with only occasional inroads of polar maritime air and generally a blob of mild air over the UK, we are not likely to see much snow this month even in Scotland.

I could go on but you get the point. Do I have to keep listing this stuff year after year? Why cos it didn't snow? Dec 10 and 17 gave unrealistic expectations of Decembers. Swings were characteristics of the slide into the LIA in the 13thC. Also during the 1960s and 70s with the ice age scare. Believe what you want to believe. When the AMO flips much more will be apparent, but always remember the old lessons about not trusting warmth early in winter. The days are only just growing longer, the cold for us has yet to get stronger but it's close.

A point to remember and ask when records are spoken of ,What was the last/next highest or lowest temp,or record .have just been reviewing the brief climate summary for nz and un less they give the past records then their current summary is meaningless. a record gust of 133km/hhas no meaning if the last gust was 132km/h so to a temp of 29.5 as compared with 29.4,so if we all ask what was the previous record they may begin to report it as it is without reference to climate change ,which we all know happens all the time.

There's been quite a few mentions on this site over the past couple of years about weakening solar activity affecting the jet stream patterns. The movement towards a meridional set up from a zonal circulation. So what is it with this obtuse attitude? Are you unable to process any information at all that challenges your preconceptions? You've been given plenty of answers, loads of pointers and you have obviously not bothered to explore them. Please stop coming back and repeating the same witless questions. Really boring now.

Happy New Year everyone! == Tony, it has to do with the meandering jet stream which during years of low solar activity shows very long meridional, i.e. N & S fetches rather than zonal W to E flows during 創ormal solar activity when there are fewer extremes. Personally, I don稚 mind the absence of snow but I知 equally happy when it does come, as it likely yet will, up here anyway.
