    So winter is to continue

    A couple of weeks back the twitter forecasters were saying the computer models were predicting a likely cold snap towards the end of Feb, then the BBC last week started with an explanation of what 'Sudden Stratospheric Warming' was, but there had been nothing from the Met Office until yesterday and now they have the proof that the air above the Artic has risen over 50 degrees, the consequence of which the Met Office say is a weakening of the jet stream, which will allow high pressure to build.

    What the Met Office doesn't know yet is where the high pressure area will sit. Out towards the west of Ireland or up over the north east of Scotland. IF it is the former the likelihood is a coldish weather from the near continent, if however it is the latter then we get very cold Siberian winds and very probably heavy snowfall.

    Which ever it is it is going to be very cold from mid to late next week and the Met Office is claiming it could well last well into March.

    I like snow, but I'm hoping they have it really wrong.

    Maybe, if we all blow very hard, we can move the weather a few hundred miles south just so Brian doesn't get homesick....

    Re: So winter is to continue

    I'm really fed up with this now. For one it means no golf for longer and I'm hacked off with that.

    Next, I hate the cold. I was chatting to a fellow dog walker this morning and we came to the conclusion that 5c was around our minimum functioning temperature. Below that is just too unpleasant and we have been under that level, allowing for wind chill, for too many weeks now. Realistically it is going to be March before we get above there again based on the current forecasts for up here.

    I've had enough, come on Euro millions lottery.

    Cold I can deal with, but don't need snow or a deluge of rain making the course unplayable. Lovely out there today. Can we stick with those conditions next week instead?

    At least we are in for a dry week in the SW by the look of it. Don't mind the cold and it's been to mild for too many years to kill of the pests and bugs

    Considering the met office can’t even get tomorrow’s weather right I take everything they say with a pinch of salt
