8˚C at 7.30 with a fresh SW�ly wind and quite sunny for most of the day, max temp 15˚, possibly the first time since last year, dry apart from one very light shower, clear evening with 6˚ at 8pm.

winter is on the final approach,with snow forecast to 900m down the bottom of sth ls.and the 3 day fc showing a dusting on the nth mtns, so weather pattens back to normal. Ive got many pics of early snow on Ruapehu mtn from past years ,mostly late march, early april. we will be in real trouble when we return to heavy snow in mid May. will we be prepared ? course not ,were getting warmer, havent we been told.

well theres an interesting comparison,usually i can mock the met for dodgy data,because of heat sources,today all 3 temps are the same,around midday.Why?. we have cloud cover,and a weak NW breeze,so the normal heat sinks are cancelled out.

So 5 months after the relentless fear porn suggested that California would never see rain again, the reservoir levels in that state have now past beyond their historical average levels: https://engaging-data.com/ca-reservoir-dashboard/ It does behove Californians to grapple more seriously with how they successfully harvest and store the rain they get in wet years, because they are going to go from drought to floods regularly, just like parts of Australia. That way, they might not be fighting the other states that truly need water from the Colorado river basin.....

seems the fridge effect took over yesterday and the temp continued to drop to a low of 3.8 here and as i drove up to 700m asl there was frost on the shady parts. A little warmer this morning 5 at the mo here, 6 at the airport, 10 in town. So use the town temp if you want a warming world,otherwise be sensible and use the country temps and be normal,rather than deluded.

Glen. If you think you are hard done by. Try living here in Hull. Even though we live in a low lying area, I remember seeing regular quite thick snow falls during the 60s 70s 80s and even 90s. Plus of course the memorable winter of 2010. The last decent snow even we had here was 10 years ago in 2013/14. During the past 9 years we have only manged about three very light dustings of snow, not even enough to make a snowball. I really do not know whether this is down to global warming or not. Or its simply a brief cycle we are going through. I've heard a lot about the MIA and winters getting progressively colder from around 2021/2022. But I really do not know what to believe or think at the moment.

Glenn - emigrate to California, they just had the first blizzard advisories in Southern California in 30 years, the Sierra Nevada have had almost 600 inches of snow this winter and if they get one more decent storm cycle after the current one, the all time records at stations which have recorded since 1970 may well be broken. Of course, you will have the perennial worry of 2 dry years putting the state back into Exceptional Drought with all the lifestyle restrictions that is increasingly bringing. But right now, come next week, a majority of the state will be officially out of drought.

Hmm maybe the met orange warning for overnight into this a.m was a day late !-) No more snow this morning after yesterdays & the cat water bowl wasn't even frozen at 7 a.m though some frozen snow remains, not complaining as a beautiful sunny morning and as they said on Twitter they would say in Scotland, just a wee bit nippy oot :-)

Looked out at 6.05 this morn. A covering of snow! Crawled back into the once warm cave of 13.5 tog heaven for 30 mins to pretend I haven't recently sown "a few" seeds in the g/house with reckless abandonment (well almost they have their fleece tog version) Thankfully the sweet peppers and chilli seeds placed in a propagator only 2 days ago and 20 chicks under a brooderplate in the garage I was glad to see made it through last night, yeah the last one was the most premature in hindsight, should have bought the forecast. Our pre schoolers face was sheer delight, even with the sniffles she wrapped up insisting on helping feeding hens & all at 7 a.m and then the snow day commenced, a fair bit built up in places and school cancelled for the big kids today and 2moro, they were gutted :) Partial melt wet snowy rain in the afternoon, wind picked up too all in all a bitter cold but sweet day, possibly more overnight as upgraded to an orange warning from yellow. Also thanks Paddy for links :)

This has turned into another mainly rain event for Norwich. I really wish I knew how we could have had heavy snow in 2021 but not in 2023. Its just not normal to have a winter without laying snow.

Has the SSW now run it’s course, or could there be more later in the month? Down here in the SW we were never going to see big snow with a northerly arctic flow. An easterly beasterly would have helped.

Well we had snow flurries last night that didn't really settle and a day of mainly sleet and rain here in Norwich. So, it's sad to say that this cold spell was a bit of a let down. If only the SSW had of hapenned a month earlier we might have had a beast from the east like february 2021. That month still remains the last snow cover for me so from an LIA perspective I'm far from happy.

Who else thinks that Britain's winter climate changed last winter. Only 2 years ago, it was possible to get snow in Norwich. Now its 100% impossible. We simply don't get the beasts from the east anymore which allows Norwich to get snow. I was right about winter what I said back in late December. Now 16th February and still no change. With 12 days left there is zero chance now. As I predicted winter has been a complete failure, don't know how much more I can take. It makes me feel like committing suicide.

January 30th and still no snow for Norwich. By February it will have been 24 months (2 years). We need a beast from the east and we need it fast to come to the rescue what little bit that there's now left of this winter. Come to the conclusion that a beast from the east is the only way snow can actually happen in Norwich. The good old 80s (best time in human history) up until 1988, february 1991, November 1993, February 1994, the Great winter of 95/96, the 08/09 and 09/10 winters, November 2010, January 2013, February 2018 and february 2021 were all beasts from the East. Each time deep snow fell in Norwich. No beast = no snow for norwich and without one forecast to happen in February another snowless lies in store for me rounding of 2 winters without snow.

A strange day. It snowed overnight again, and after sunrise it was colder and snowier than yesterday, Some cars and boats were covered with the stuff, and piers and pontoons had gone all white and still in a winter wonderland. But there was black ice too, and I did slip once on my way in to work. At lunchtime, still cold, the sky looked almost angry for awhile, but then the sun came out briefly, and there was a thaw. The temperature, however, dropped again - but this was followed by warmer air and heavy rain for a spell. The plants outside my office, which started spurting in growth last week, have stopped doing anything and look,, well, confused.

Alistair, I haven't seen the Met Office forecast, but my weather almanac gives an interesting commentary on historical patterns in early winter (Nov 20 -Jan 19): " This season typically sees an alternation between long periods of mild westerly weather and drier anticyclonic conditions. Roughly half of the years see this pattern, usually with the westerly episodes being wet and windy, with a succession of depressions arriving from the Atlantic. Short cold periods, generally lasting less than a week, occur in between the westerly episodes. Very cold conditions rarely arrive before the very end of January,and generally become established in early February." So,Alistair, what does the MO mean by "current likelihood"? Has the MO failed to observe an SSW pattern yet, hence their analysis of a low probability of an SSW leading to snow? If they observed evidence of one now, we'd generally then be getting snow in a few weeks - as per the historical pattern described above.

Despite this December likely to be in the top 10 of coldest Decembers on record and dozens upon dozens of cold records falling across North America and record cold in Australia over their winter and a cold start to their summer the UKMO have today confidently predicted that 2023 will be hotter than 2022. It’s the classic behaviour of doubling down on your POV despite being wrong. With their track record I think I will invest in some new waterproofs for summer.

Our blueberries were doing the best ever, last year's being victim to our resident blackbird couple (a favourite of theirs despite much else on offer), but despite being in very large pots succumbed to the summer heat and lack of soaking skies and lost their sweetness there and then. I top up the dressing with coffee grounds and for our heather which was happier than many a year. We have plenty berries frozen at least but nowhere the bounty we could have had. Apples were poor by virtue of the spring cold, but the limited fruit was fine. In other years our varieties held us in good sted. Overall tho berries did very well. Having a shift around for next year including putting things in the ground. We have to cope with both extremes as most here have known for years, maximising and making opportunity where we can.

Paddy - one quirky thing I've noticed harvesting maincrop potatoes in October is that several of them look as if they were planted three weeks ago - new sprouts on them! Must have been the two months of drought then finally some rain that stirred them from slumbers. Huge numbers of potatoes but more akin to a first early crop in a way - lots of smaller ones. Still a good weight, but rather unlike a normal maincrop harvest. I'm also harvesting celery two months later than normal - they barely grew between early June and mid August, then they raced ahead in the autumn mildness and rains.

Paddy - if I could post a picture of our grass on this site, it would be an amazing demonstration that, if you didn't know that we'd had a hot dry summer amounting to drought, you'd think everything was absolutely normal. The grass is now lush and green again. Of course, the soil still has some way to go to being fully recharged, but the heavy showers the past 48hrs have helped a lot in that regard. Should be interesting popping to the allotment this afternoon to see how this mild wet weather is progressing my cabbages and Brussels Sprouts. The lesson of droughty years is that trees with root systems crop better than most annuals, particularly if you don't have taps to water with. Down in the New Forest the locals use the wise approach of fattening up their pigs on the acorns dropping from oak trees. Out in the fresh air, costing nothing, mopping up the excess seed on the ground. All good non-PC carnivorous farming practices...

The young swallows mentioned above started flying yesterday and could be seen over the farm feeding & presumably working up flying skills for the long journey. That’s the latest we’ve ever had swallows here in the 30 years we’ve been on the farm.

As many posts on Craig’s twitter account point out, there have been similar catastrophic events like Ian or the Pakistan floods before.

Some perhaps paranoid US folks claiming that deliberate geoengineering of Hurricane Ian was undertaken by USAF to stall and intensify the storm to maximise the impact. All of course at at time when the Great Reset needs Climate Catastrophe events to justify global autocracy. Piers: I'm not enough au fait with those technologies to know if cloud seeding and HAARP could do that, and I'm perfectly prepared to believe that it can't. But if the USA is now terrorising its own people using hurricanes, I think it needs to become a pariah state very very soon....

We still have a pair of swallows on the farm, which is unusual this lat in September, because they have a late 3rd brood, 2nd one fell out of their nest for reasons unknown to us, and are waiting for the youngsters to be fit enough for the long migration.

4°C at 7.30, coldest this side of Christmas, but clear as a bell, very slight NW'ly breeze. Setting off for Crieff where we'll be staying for the next few days, amazingly smooth drive with hardly any traffic (gee, I wonder why?), gradually getting less cold as we approached our goal, around 14° by evening, just making it up from the car thermometer.

The big drought in NW London has broken, with 4 inches plus of rain in the past 14 days, mostly in the past 7. There's still plenty of soil recharging to be done, but this should ensure that the autumn crops, notably cabbage, turnip and winter radish, do really well. The apple crop has also been really excellent, showing that tree crops are better able to resist droughts than smaller annual plants. Amazing how what was a brown lawn is now almost completely restored to deep green in under 14 days.

Finally the system is moving off,having dragged down quite a lot of tropical moisture and dumped it in a few spots that arent used to it,because we havent been here long enough to know .so many got 1-200mm others 400mm+ and a couple of mts were above 1000mm of rain over 3 days or so.Hard to keep up with that much rainfall.

Another 10mm since yest.unlike other parts that got a few more drops.Nelson is flooding,a bit too much water for the riverbanks .It is always interesting at times like this, to hear the bleating from those who have built, or live on an old flood plain.They try to blame nature rather than themselves cos they like living on flat ground and their brain cant fathom that the ground is flat cos a river made it so. Then you get others that the media latch onto who say theyve never seen anything like it for 20 yrs. Big deal go back a 100 yrs or 200y . wallys

This winter has been quite mild and at a mates in the higher country they run their ram with the ewes all year and,so already have lambs.

Craig - 2022 in NW London will go down as a year of great fruit harvests (cherry, plum already complete, apple will be stellar), excellent spring and early summer harvests (those things planted out in March, April and May) and a real bummer for anything planted from early June onwards. Even the parsnips, carrots and beetroot are struggling right now. But the apple trees are laden with fruit, the branches are all bending down - it explains why Kent is the orchard of England but why the wetter west is a safer place to grow annual vegetables which need more water....

We do look on for the driest July on record, with the caveat records means nothing in the grand scheme. As Piers warned us over a decade ago, extremes of heat & cold, lack & excess precipitation were what to expect. I said myself, here, that alarmists were going to seize upon the extremes as proof of the existence of their god (okay I didn't say that last bit 😅). We are not dealing with the sane or the rational. It's a sickness. It's a narcissistic, messianic perversion of self belief. Such is the power of the trace gas deity they worship & fear, it is capable of anti-miracles. Carbon dioxide is the gas of life. Our planet breathes it. On every time scale, temperature leads co2, yet they demonised it because cheap energy is what allowed us to thrive. By controlling co2, they control us. Martin Lewis said 10m or more will be thrown into fuel poverty come autumn. Piers has been howling like a banshee, as he saw what was coming. We were warned.

We easily hit a record here during the pump & dump heatwave, which thanks to the low dew points & humidity. 28, 36, 38 was the order. The 38 was quite pleasant as the wind picked up in the afternoon. The next day graced us with steady light rain, enough for a few puddles which lasted until the next morning. I really miss the rain, probably as much as the garden does. The lack of moisture at depth has taken it's toll on growing. We never had a autumn/winter recharge & it's telling. Since then the air has stayed pretty mobile, some smaller branches down & an early autumnalesque leaf drop & look to the trees. Temps are flitting between low to high 70s F (21-25C), except today which reached 80F (27c). Nights are high 50s, low 60s (14-17), dew points in the 50s (10-14C).

Down here in NW London, we had excellent spring/overwintering crops, but the drought and the heatwave is not much good for summer crops.

I remember listening to Lauren Moret years ago, it was she who said that [they] can’t totally control the huge energies involved in global weather but that they can amplify to a degree, by whatever means they have, if an existing system is already going in a certain direction. Doesn’t mean that they won’t try to get better at it until we’re all wiped out. I’m optimistic for us in the long run though, as people are waking up in the thousands and [they] are exposing themselves ever more because [they] need to hurry, the balance is tipping in our favour every day.

Geoffrye Hood welcome and thanks for your comment. To answer your question, I think your being given fake news. If you go to === http://solen.info/solar/images/comparison_similar_cycles.png === you can see SC25 in comparison to Sc's 24, 12,13,14 & 16. Then look at SC's 21-25 here === http://solen.info/solar/images/comparison_recent_cycles.png === you'll see it's not a major cycle at all, though it's above SC24. Now SC25 may well peak early, the opposite of SC24 which had a higher 2nd peak (2014) compared to the 1st peak in 2011. However, I think it will be similar as it's a completion of the 22y hale cycle so will be like a mirror rather than replica of 24. Basically I'm not concerned. I may well be in the cycles ahead, although if our magnetic shield continues to weaken then the last thing we want is a strong cycle.

Three months now of much less than normal rainfall in NW London: it does mean my tomatoes in pots have progressed in a stellar fashion but trying to grow peas in such a situation is futile. Should be harvesting the first broad beans before the end of May; have already harvested a dozen spring turnips from a March direct sowing; I could have planted out many of the warmer weather crops significantly earlier this year than I have done, notablly sweetcorn, courgette, squash, cucumber and climbing beans. The rain this week has helped, but it wasn't in any way transformational. Just some steady rain for a few hours, a few heavy overnight showers. We could do with 3 days of steady heavy rain to give us 4 inches or so.

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. Here today in NW London, our car port roof has been ripped off, an arch growing climbing roses has been overturned and plenty of other pots and garden stuff like a womery have been overturned. The front door bell has been ringing spontaneously and the computer has cut out twice.

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.

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°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/

I do\t have access to Piers forecasts but it would be interesting to know how accurate he has been to date. I.e. December and January.

Although it's not snowy it's better than warm grey muck. Glorious to see the sun and stars of late. On that note it has been a particularly grey few months, starting in about July. 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.

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?

Craig, I really enjoyed the meme on your blog about the overflowing Indian Railways train purporting to be the Glasgow to Carlisle train on Hogmanay :-), shame we can’t put pictures in this blog. 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 ‘normal’ solar activity when there are fewer extremes. Personally, I don’t mind the absence of snow but I’m equally happy when it does come, as it likely yet will, up here anyway.

Happy New Year to all of you..ours down here is cloudy, cool ,15c,a slight breeze,and the probability of 24 or so as yesterday was.. I suspect that weather patterns have always been scattered,with only occasional worldwide ,or hemispherical disturbances,even within a small country such uk or nz. We because of our size and surrounded by water will be influenced more by the water so our weather will not be as steady or predictable as that of large land masses.We still have much to learn about the weather ,which makes all their long term predictions laughable.Peirs does best because he uses more perameters,and adds the more relevent data,solar, lunar etc that the others deem pseudo, yet want to use but cant unless they admit he is right, even your 1963 storm didnt cover the whole of uk did it? the weather just doesnt work that way.its variable and the trees show it. Enjoy everything as it is while it is.remba the Romans must have enjoyed the Medi.warm period growing grapes in Scotland

7˚C at 7.30, light SW’ly wind and a bright sunny morning with a max of 11˚ but rather warmer in the sunshine, more cloud in the afternoon but still mild, 7˚ at 8pm. Rather amazing having this mild spell when so many other places around the world are buried in metres of snow: Turkey, California, Mongolia, Siberia etc.

Seven feet of snow and counting for the Christmas storm in the Sierra Nevada - see https://www.mammothmountain.com/mountain/winter-weather. The drought severity is definitely decreasing steadily there. Los Angeles has had nearly 5 inches of rain in December 2021, with a final storm to come tomorrow and Friday. See https://www.laalmanac.com/weather/we13a.php for the daily rainfall figures. Rainfall in California since Oct 1 (the start of the 'rainfall year') is tracking close to the 90th percentile: see https://engaging-data.com/california-precipitation-levels/
