By the way, whatever source you can supply, it will need to be at least as reliable as the UK Met. Office.

Jesus Puterman...exactly HOW old are you mate!
(sorry, that sounds terrible!)
My mum says she remembers a really, really cold and snowy winter back in 65-66...she recons it was unbelievably cold...she'd just given birth to my older sister, and was (unfortunately) living temporarily in a small caravan while they were just getting their business off the ground...Brrrrrrr...a caravan! Must have been a nightmare!
I cannot understand how the UK managed to continue on as if nothing had really happened back then,
this isnt nonsense, i live in scotland in the uk, one of the parts worst hit and we have never not in my lifetime and im 32 had snow fall like we are witnessing, especially this early, we normally dont get snow till mid january im literally snowed in, we have empty shelves in the supermarkets, because food lorrys are being trapped, its reaching -18/19 in some places which is not normal, even for scotland which is a cold country generally.
this is being caused by the gulf stream ..which has stopped to to the gulf oil spill, no warm currents, and were being hit with this weather because of it.
I'm 34, by the way, and I've never seen two foot thick snow in urban areas. Ever. I've never seen drifting covering the front of folks garages.

your Gulf Stream Velocity map from the other thread had a time stamp from 2005. Any chance of finding the current stream velocity. I cannot.
