Ok so I'm no pro thread maker and for the record I'm using my phone so can only post a link
www.express.co.uk...

So most parts of the UK are to see major snowfall in November, with the cold snap apparently staying till February. I know previously before a ATS member called JRMCLEOD made a thread last year regarding an extreme winter last year and provided some excellent weather charts. And to be honest out winter where I live lasted till about April with some very cold temperatures

The article says we may see some record breaking temperatures with most of the UK going to suffer from significant snow fall

So just thought id post this to make people away and to keep their wits about them. Maybe someone with some knowledge of weather charts or anyone who had any more info to add feel free. Oh also I'm not star of flag hunting just a heads up

Note: MODs if this article is wrong or in the wrong place or needs deleting .. Feel free to do your stuff

3 months! Must be rough!

Come to Canada! I had a snow bank halfway up my house and then a flood when it all melted in the spring (March). We get just about 1/2 a year with snow and cold weather. I always laugh when I hear that a warmer climate gets 2 inches of snow and the city closes down.

I was recently up Ben Nevis (lovely part of the world) bloody freezing it was. Im a big snow lover and envy you scots when you get so much. I was even unhappy when driving through Glen Coe when I saw barriers to close off roads during snow fall .. I was like .. we don't have them in Essex

Amazing, snow in winter....who would of thunk it eh lol

Ive lived in England all of my life, snow is not uncommon in winter, most winters we have snow...some winters its worse than others, but still nothing major. People get all worried about 3 inches of snow here in England for some reason, the younger generations that is...us oldies take it in our stride and crack on.

Id be more surprised if it was 25c in November, snow is normal.

Amber even though I made the thread I agree with you. This country is rubbish when it snows. And i will be honest, in my job I get to see the morning papers and their headlines every morning. The daily express is known to be a bit over kill when they talk about the weather. During the summer when we had some mini heat waves the express was treating almost like the end of the world

I just wanted to post this so people can keep an eye out

Also you oldies aren't so tough when you fall and do a hip in hah just joking. I'm only 28 but I do remover vaguely when I was 4 or 5 having some mega snow but usually yes you are right snowfall isn't that bad in the UK

Excellent...I love Snow, but what i love most about snow is How Unprepared people can be...it's Funny watching people fall on their Arse, especially men in Suits and Patent Leather shoes.


A couple of Years ago i was out Hunting, I could see the Snow Coming, so i made for home.

The sky's got really dark, hardly a wind then ..Boom!" Down it came...within 2 hours the roads were closed, cars had been abandoned, office staff walking home freezing their Tetas off....I waited on the snow stopping. Slipped on my Snow gear and went back to tracking some Game....Love it.

Im only in my thirties myself, i say oldies as many on here are teenagers
and probably are a little naive to the weather here in the UK. We have had some warmish summers with not much snow, but when i was a kid (80s) i remember lots of snow, i mean like 10 inches sometimes. There were never the issues we have nowadays with closed schools and panic buying.

People are so pathetic nowadays, a lil bit of snow and they stop everything until it thaws.

I cant wait to see all the Jaguar, BMW and Merc drivers getting stuck with their rear wheel drive cars, it makes me laugh every time it snows haha. Last time it snowed i saw a guy in an SL65 AMG burning his tyres out trying to get down a road....must have been a fairly expensive 100 yards lol.

Met Office response

Worth noting that Madden and co predict the worst winter on record every year. And also the hottest/coldest/wettest/driest summer on record. Every year.

And they have no meteorological qualifications.

They are to the Met Office what a stray dog in Bombay is to David Beckham.

And if you believe this story, I have just a few bottles of fairy dust left - guaranteed to cure all ills and make you live and love forever. Just $1,000 a bottle. PM me for details

Being an oldie too (coming up for the half century) I remember we used to have quite a lot of snow up to around the mid 80's. It seemed to tail off a bit but the last 3 years or so have seen a return to colder winter temperatures and last year it seemed to last a lot longer.

The problem is, a lot of people these days have been conditioned to expect the "authorities" to nanny them and use little or no common sense or self reliance. I remember a couple of years ago when we had a lot of snow and saw a reporter out on the street talking to people as they made their way to work, many complaining about the snow not being cleared etc. One guy, heading to the station for his commute in a smart suit, flat soled office shoes and a scarf - no gloves, overcoat or gloves! Another dippy female tottering along in stiletto heeled boots complaing about the slippery surfaces...etc...etc! I mean, seriously, it's freakin' winter, dress for it and use a bit of common sense for crying out loud.


I use winter tyres, have an overnight bag in the car, drinks / food, blankets, torch, hi-viz jacket + hat gloves scarf, folding shovel, waterproof gear and a thick parka in the car all winter......just in case. Might not need it but at least I am prepared if I do.

Andy .. I know after I posted this thread I was thinking .. Hmm should I of posted it but hey you never know we may get some mega snow and you'll all be like ... 'Ah yeah that peacemaker dude mentioned this I'm so glad I read his thread and was prepared' .. Haha .. Or not

Thanks. Thats useful information to have. If nothing else it allows purchase of useful stuff like bluecol screenwash before it all sells out in a panic when the TV weatherman says 'snow and deep cold'.

Driving on dirty salted roads with summer screenwash that freezes solid in the pipes isn't fun. I had that the last time we got -15c and didn't like it much.

No probs


Just worries me that some people take this stories as serious MetO forecasts and then criticise the MetO when they are wrong.

Of course, it's possible we could have a very cold, snowy winter ...... and I'm sure we'll all see some snow at some point

The Express have this same story every year, along with foods that cause cancer and how great Princess Diana was. They've become more of a right-wing women's magazine than a newspaper these days.

Yeah completely agree some people just can't look after themselves, I work in. Tesco store and we had some significant snowfall one year and I kept over hearing customers moaning about the length of time they had to wait for a taxi, while I sat there thinking:
1. Check the weather, if it says it's going to snow don't go and do a full load of shopping
2. You've just ordered a taxi .. There is 10 inches of snow on the ground what do you expect to happen

I just get on the cold weather gear, slip the boots on and off sledging!

As I stated above I questioned myself after posting it .. I'm aware of what the express is like and you've got it down to a tee.

Ha Ha, yes I remember 2 yrs ago we had a bit of snow and the brand new BMW 2 spaces down from me couldnt get out the car park. I jumped in my old Rover and pulled away first time no problems!! Love these kind of threads. Snow predicted for nearly all the UK. Willing to take bets now that there may well be snow in places but down here in Devon it will be rain, unless your on the highest parts of Dartmoor. Same every year. Maybe get a very light covering in dec or jan but I certainly wont take much notice of these claims and will continue my mundane life untroubled by such claims through til the Spring

JUST FOR THE RECORD: after posting this thread I questioned the source (The Express) I appreciate that they like to go OTT on their headlines, which was why I was kind of hoping at some point someone with knowledge of weather maps can pipe in and help out

Also whenever I see these articles I always think to myself .. How can they tell what the weather is like in 2 months time it changes every day
