December prospects and models

Post by rjd1000 » Thu Dec 01, 2016 8:20 pm

Models have collapsed from showing a cold spell to now showing a bartlett euro high and long drawn SW winds as we head into December.

a very very hard pattern to break.

You read it here first!

my prediction now is for november to be colder than the next 3 "winter" months,

just like 2013/14

would be very welcome Paul - i myself favour frosty, sunny, cold weather in winter - snows a bonus.

But look out for the usual - cold always 2+ weeks away

first its mid december, then late december, then the new year, then mid january. before you know it winters over and colder weather never arrived.
