Well we have a topic on the warmest winter on record so lets have one on the coldest..

 

I fell we are about to see some of the most severe and snowiest weather this country has ever experienced.. 

 

From Mid December High Pressure to the North of the Uk will dominate our weather, bringing frequent heavy falls of snow, and exceptional low temperatures..

 

lets see the thoughts of all the members on here..

Just once in my lifetime I would like to experience an epic winter. Snowier, colder and lengthier than 2010. Don't get me wrong, 2010 was great, I loved it,  but I want a real barnstormer, a real show stopper of a winter. Just once. :)

Winter 2013/2014 lowest temp.......0.4

No snow......very few frosts.

Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.

I want to see the prolonged cold of 1962/3 combined with the massive snowfalls of 1946/47.

since 2010 we have had some epic snowfalls , the last one being March 13 ..

These seem to be getting more intense, we have also come close to some severe snow (close but no cigar)

This winter may be the one when it all comes together and delivers the one to remember..

Barely a flake blew here I'm afraid, but yes I'm hoping for a good one this year.

Really depends, knowing this country the infrastructure would systematically implode at the end of day 1 leading to misery for nearly everyone as you can't travel anywhere rofl.gif

Would be great to have snow on the ground throughout the entire winter though, interspersed with clear/crisp sunny days :)

I 'feel' that pink unicorns from Pluto will invade us and become our overlords, doesn't mean it's going to happen though. I don't think feelings are much use when it comes to predicting weather.  I haven't the foggiest what kind of winter we'll have to be honest, does anyone really??

If this happened then the thread I made would look ridiculous and I'd become depressed and then cry.

 

Jokes, it would awesome at the start but would become tiresome at the end.

Seeing all these March 2013 pictures annoy me slightly. It was a great month and I did enjoy it, but here the max snow depth let me down at about 4" and places nearby faired a lot better. And seeing those monster snows rubs salt in the wound!

Because of this, I think I'd rather have very deep snows than the coldest Winter on record.

I see we already have something of  Scandie and Greenie Highs, the area to the north east of Moscow is now sub 528 mbs and I note that over the past few days Moscow's max's would not disgrace a normal winter's day over here, dropping to about 7C, so I ask myself whether this is a harbinger of things to come?

 

Well established highs in these locations have the potential to bring us long lasting frigid conditions.

 

There is little doubt that if we were to retain the current synoptic situation for the whole of the winter M & S would quickly run out of woolly knickers, so for you snow lovers there is hope - it all depends on how the jet streams are going to behave in the coming weeks and months.

I was standing by a lamp post at the corner of the street,
in case a little snow flake passes by,
oh me, oh my,
in case a little snow flake passes by

I remember Feb 86 as my great winter memory, but even 4 weeks of temps around 0c it got a bit 'wearing' at the end but what made it a greta month in Swansea was that we had decent snowfall at the beginning as it became very dry.  I prefer a winter with two week cold spells interspersed with warm ups.  This winter the coldest?  Well I've read two people who use solar based forecasts and one method says deep prolonged cold, one says mild Jan/Feb is due....but interestingly the one whose analogs suggest mild have overridden that and gone for cold at this early stage...due to 'additional' factors.

Solar driven Perturbation cycle, -ve PDO phase playing havoc with the background signals which are supposed to bring a flat and mild pattern. It is IMO clear we are in a new cycle and that the jet is more south, more amplified and that the chances of cold winters or very cold periods in winter are enhanced....and poorer summers will be experienced.

Added 20/3/13 - either its pure fluke over last 5 years or the above has taken effect and tightens its grip and these cycles last for decades. We are IMO more and more headed into a Grand Minima and a LIA with 1st peak around 2030. The appaearance of a LIA footprint is in evidence

yeah march 22-24th was great here, and so was 18th-20th Jan, not record cold, but I think i would rather have significant snow

 

Dec '10 was fantastic, not as much snow as other 2, but colder and festive
