As for further down the line, it does start to look calmer mid week with cooler temps but it doesnt look especially wintry other than northern hills at the moment. It still looks unsettled with more rain to come.
I like a bit of snow. I think I blew the chance of snow when I bought my dds snow boots in October. Damn it they'll have grown out of them by next year and they've not even worn them yet! Just bought the weather pro app...I like it!
Much as I adore snow/cold, I'd quite like it to wait until a)things re dried out so all of our soggy bricks dont shatter with the frost and the massive floods dont turn to ice b)til I've got a few stressful things out of the way.
The rain will hugely improve tomorrow as I'm off out with dd to buy her some new wellies as not even mine fit her any more <scientific>
Thanks for this new thread kitten Hope there's no more flooding for anyone.
I'm hoping that there is no snow this year as I start a new job tomorrow which I have to drive to. Next year it can because by then I will have been there a year so having to have a snow day won't make them think that I'm a skiver as I would have proved how ace I am by then.
Was just watching the weather (not sure if it was bbc or sky as I'm half asleep) and they said that this weather will continue for at least 10 days but looks like the end of the month will get a lot colder, no mention of 'snow' but we can hope .
Rain is still quite light her which is a relief after yesterdays heavy rain (in the morning), seems to be light showers rather than stormy weather.
I'm not holding out much hope after the predicted a cold winter starting as early as the end of October , we have hardly had any frosts let alone and (what I call) cold weather. I thought it was almost impossible to predict the weather that far ahead?
I looked at several forcasts yesterday (for today), one predicted very heavy rain and storms for the south, another said 'light rain, getting heavier and then clearing and another said showers so chances are we wont get any cold weather at the end of the month, will probably still be raining.
The floods locally ( sea floods) haven't been seen anywhere near this level for at least 20 years. We aren't in one of the worst hit areas or even making it on the national news ( made in on NW tonight though.
Would be interesting to see the pattern of weather from last time the floods were this bad (20 years ago), was it followed by a hot dry summer? did it snow that year? would love to think we were going to get a nice summer to make up for all this wet weather .
