I'd possibly have the first winter I can remember without any lying snow IMBY. Even in mild winters we usually to have some days where the threat of something wintry is about and then up here we tend to be on the right side of marginal. As others have said, at least the heating bills will be lower.

It could be the mildest on record but still have a cold March to look forward or endure depending on preference. Look at 1868-69 http://www.ukweather...-that-followed/

It would be awful and just confirm that we are in an abysmal run of winters on a par with the record breaking snowless write-offs of the late 80s/early 90s.

 

A mildest winter on record would be unlikely to have any decent snow so by the time it was possible to get another decent snowfall it would be November/December 2014 and the 4th anniversary of the last one Posted Image

 

The only consolation would be that if it was like 1988/89 we would at least have plenty dry bright and sunny weather with mins averaging out around 3-4C and maxes 10C. However if it were anything like December 1934: mins of 6C, maxes of 8C, 20 hours of sun and 120mm of rain with no frost that would be beyond horrific and depressing and a real struggle to have to endure for 3 months without turning to antidepressants.

If we do end up seeing a record-busting mild winter, I will be outside making the most of it. Much as I love snow, mowing the lawn on Christmas Day 1974 was also a pleasure...Posted Image Hic!

If that proves to be the case then so be it, but I'd say it's a very long shot at this stage and probably shares equal likelyhood with the coldest, wettest, sunniest etc. One thing is again as absolutely certain as night following day tho and that is no amount of hopecasting, wishful thinking, wet dreaming, ramping, digging at others or just plain anger will change anything...so hopefully this Winter we'll see far less of any of um in the MODT.

As much as i love the seasonal chill in the build up to Christmas, i care little about what happens on the big day itself. So if it was 15c and blowing a SW gale i would love every minuite of it.

 

As for the mildest winter on record. I hear that a bit of the cold stuff is necesary for nature to completely shut down before reawakening again in the Spring. So whilst i would take the mildest on record, an average winter would be just as preferable with some cold occurring from time to time throughout the 3 months.

Lets say we had 8.2c for December (beats 1934 and 1974)  CET series

 

7.6c for January (beats 7.5c Jan 1916) CET Series

8.0 for February (beat 7.9c Deb 1779) CET series

 

I'm on the fence whether I would prefer that to a average winter (cold winter no chance)

 

This forum would go into melt down and loads of new theories would remerge..

maybe, but there is only so far they can go before the band "snaps" and like the poll tax riots the people will have their say ( though oddly those taxes actually were fairer overall)

Mild winters likely to return as a result of climate change but cold winters still likely as well

 

Climate change likely to turn UK's weather more extreme

 

Global trends identified by climate scientists suggest Britain will get more extreme rainfall, and wetter and warmer winters. However scientists cautioned that natural variability will continue to play a big role in determining the UK's weather, so there will continue to be exceptional cold snaps and cool summers.

Wouldn't mind really, as I work outside at least it will feel nice, although getting the van stuck and doing handbrake turns in the snow of 2010 was pretty epic! Although I am a coldie in winter and love the snow, I'd think of the benefits it would bring, such as the mild SST's it will bring to start off the warm up in spring etc. Could be the answer to more storms at least then in the summer. I think I have seen enough mild winters in the past though. The tediousness of going through one of the mildest winters and dullest summers which winter 07 and summer 08 was extreme and was so fr!gg!ng boring. Would not want that again.

HA HA talk about covering all angles.  So in essence , we'll get a big storm every now and then, there will be some flooding from time to time and we'll experience cold winters , warm winters, cool summers and hot summers. 

 

So to sum up, they have not a clue and are just stating the obvious; wrapping it up like it's something out of the norm.
