Holy SHOCKING temp batman!

I knew it was cold at the mo, most notably a big drop a week or so ago, but its never usually more than minus 10.

Im mid UK and i am VERY shocked to hear that near -18 anywhere in the UK mainland, thats usually the top tip of Scotland temps!!!

I hope it doesnt get that cold down here, they are usless with mild cold and snow, anything approching minus 20 is going to get them very moody! *sigh*

The top tip of Scotland has it's temperature moderated by the sea. Do yo mean the central Scottish Highlands, instead ?

We had minus 19 sustained for a few days last Winter, we're near Edinburgh.

So in "UK terms" these temperatures are quite normal.

There was snow in the Sahara recently, Rome too, which caused a bit of chaos. Afghanistan has also received their heaviest snowfall in 15 years. Records broken all over parts of Europe.


Europe’s record freezing temperatures have claimed hundreds of lives, snarled traffic and trapped tens of thousands of residents in remote villages across Serbia and Romania.

It is the worst cold snap to happen in February in 26 years, Georg Mueller, a forecaster at Point Carbon told Reuters.

“It was in 1986 when we had the last similarly severe cold weather (in February),” he said. “In this instance this big blocking of cold air . . . seemed to influence the way the winds behaved rather than the other way around,” he said. “We didn’t expect the cold block to become so persistent and then move westward.”

In many European capitals, authorities have set up extra shelters for the homeless to help them survive the cold snap that has seen temperatures sink as low as minus 36 C. The majority of the cold-related deaths have been of the homeless.

Meteorologists predict the frigid temperatures will last until the end of February

Why don't you contribute something to the topic instead of your unwanted little opinions?

As I said before, it is this cold because it is winter. Winters used to be like this in the past, and the natural cycle our planet undergoes as the decades roll through is back at the stage it used to be at when our grandparents were children - causing them to complain about how bad the winters were.

It is not strange or abnormal, it's nature's geographic cycle.

The weather is def screwed, especially in London, where im from.

i have lived here for 34 years, and the whole weather system has completely changed over the years, at one point during this winter, when the sun perked up which was uncharacteristic, flowers started to bloom.




The strains of Silent Night have barely faded, but already the snowdrops have reared their heads and gardens are ablaze with colour. Confused? You’re not the only one. The exceptionally mild winter has left Mother Nature so baffled that spring has sprung early – and autumn hasn’t quite gone away either. At a time when we would usually expect to see bare branches and icy mornings, some flowers have burst into life two or more months ahead of schedule. Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk...< br />







No end to autumn: This cherry tree in Windsor, prunus autumnalis, is a variety which normally flowers in October. This one did... and is still blooming now










Awakening: Usually considered a sign of spring when it blooms in February, this polyanthus (left) opens up in Hertfordshire. The camellia japonica (right) typically flowers between March and May but is already brightening the winter in Windsor Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk...< br />




We have abundant amounts of squirrels here where i am, none have gone into hibernation??

i seem to of messed up the html, hellppppp lol

It's still worth mentioning, try not to be an asshat.

Like I posted above, this is the worst cold snap to affect Europe in February, in 26 years.

And Europe is not the only one confined to records being broke.
