    Yesterday when I was travelling to school it was -2 degrees. I was freezing even with a coat on. Just now where I live it is 3 degrees.
    -2? Oh how I can't wait until January/February when it gets turbo cold

    Yeah, -2. The temp didn't reach a postive umber till 12pm lol but at least it was sunny but very cold. I prefer snow though, I think tomorrow we might get a touch of sleet, I only like proper snow

    Eh... so long as it doesn't get unbearably cold at work I don't mind cold weather. -2 isn't that cold really. You'll be reet with a coat and scarf.

    But it's below average for this time of year? Should it be near 3/4 degrees during the day ?

    Below average for most parts of the UK, yes. However that doesn't mean it's not normal to be below freezing for a sustained period of time. What seems to be the case is that a typical day is fairly warm and then a cold snap brings the average down.

    I remember during one such cold snap a few years ago taking a note of how cold the air felt when I walked out the door and looking at the thermometer outside. -2 didn't feel that cold but the day it got to -7 was the point it started to get uncomfortable. There was not much wind around that time, I should add. With a bit of wind it would have been much worse.

    -7, that is cold. If it was that coldi doubt I would be going outside and I would be hibernating in my house instead

    Lol, soon as I saw the title I knew it would be an Express article, they said last year would be the coldest winter on record or something.... it turned out to be one of the mildest on record I think :lol:

    And they said something about snow in November this year, but of course there was none unless you live at the top of the Cairngorms :rolleyes:

    The worst thing is someone is getting paid to churn out this rubbish based on no evidence but some made up meteorologist every year

    Am I the only one who thinks it's not that cold? Sure, the breeze is making it feel colder than what it actually is, but still.

    Then again, I wouldn't mind it to be -20, so I guess I answer my own question. :P

    Don't usually take these things too seriously. Seem to recall Fullofsurprises predicting we would all perish beneath 15ft of snow last winter :mmm:
    My weather forecasts are famously inaccurate. Until they are right. :lol:

    For example, I believe we are in for a cold winter this year and I have a small bet on that there will be snow at Christmas in London.

    Well.. that's one way of putting it! :mmm:

    For what it's worth, I hope you're right this time! :hoppy:
    It seems we are currently in a trend of being more likely to get snow at Xmas. At least according to Met Office data.

    However, I got 8-1 on snow at Heathrow, so maybe the overall picture is still not very likely. :sad:

    "Currently in a trend"? Based on a few fairly stochastic clustered snowfalls in just 50 years of illustrated data?

    You understand this is the climate we're talking about right?

    Spoiler:

    ..which as we all know is largely governed by unpredictable forces, like gay marriage :teehee:

    Didn't have you down as the gambling type, how much did you place? :scrooge:

    'Overall picture' as in London proper/rest of UK?
    Yawn, yeah, overall as in London. :teehee:

    I'm in for a tenner. I was introduced to it by sis, who is big into gambling, bad habits and all that.

    Be afraid :afraid: panic, run around screaming because according to some newspapers we are in for the most severe winter in years. Reality it is just sensationalised and normal winter conditions are expected, although suppose if they keep predicting it each year, one year they will get it right. I swear they just edit the title each time.

    It's a bit cold, yeah..its winter. Those newspapers are the newspapers that lie...the one you linked to is the Express, well known for lying and being cheap newspaper, so no I'm not listening to anything they say :P

    Aye I was pointing out just how poor the article is, and in general how the Express always like to make it look like doomsday.

    I'm not finding it that cold and I hate the cold. Where I am it's been a bit frosty at night and dampness makes the chilly air even more chilly, but it's still not too bad for this time of year.
