Bad Weather On The Way

After a relatively good autumn it looks like winter is finally on its way.  The forecast for next week predicts very cold weather with 3-4" of snow.. Time to dig out the snow shovel I fear Wink

Re: Bad Weather On The Way

Better move south then.... cos we got it pretty dry for the next 10 days.... apart from sunday night/monday morning (maybe) a shower...
Temps, admittedly, are forecast to be " a bit chilly" overnight with it starting on Tuesday overnight dropping to -3 and a high of 8 ..... Minus temps overnight for the rest of the week, but daytime temps rising slowly from 8 to 13 by saturday.
Snow shovel is in a handy place by the back door..... just in case  Roll eyes

Re: Bad Weather On The Way

Er no we didn't.
It was cloudy for WEEKS. You call that one of the best?
Summer of 2010 was superior to it (trust me, I was out working outdoors with trousers sweating my b*lls off in the sweltering heat). This summer was nothing like it.

I have to agree that summer 2010 was better, but not by much.

Re: Bad Weather On The Way

No I didn't miss it mate, I was looking out the window every day waiting for a half decent day of sunshine so I could go outdoors for a bit.
Yes we did have a few weeks of good weather I don't deny that but I could never agree that this summer was a godo one or a record breaker etc. 2010 was definitely better. I don't care what official records show as they're frequently fiddled. I go by what I remember and 2010 was a scorcher!

Re: Bad Weather On The Way

The Bookies do a thing every year where they try and predict whether we'll get a white Christmas in December, the last one we had was back int he late 80s as I recall, about 25 years ago.

Re: Bad Weather On The Way

Must depend on where you live, but down here in the SE, this summer was absolutely glorious  Cool
Of course, the fact we'd just come off a bad winter that felt like it had lasted 18 months due to the complete absence of a summer last year might have affected perceptions  Roll eyes
I have a vague idea that 2010 was OK, too

Re: Bad Weather On The Way

Cool I predict a dump of BBC reporters standing on bridges over motorways not wearing hats saying, "this is the worse winter weather of this winter so far. Gritters were out early this morning trying to keep this stretch of motorway behind me open but traffic has been at a standstill due to the severity of the conditions. As you can see, it's still snowing here and weather experts are forecasting another inch of snow on top of the two inches that's already fallen. Back to the studio."
