I hope it's not unseasonably warm, it never seems to lead to a good summer when that happens. I'd rather the warmth happened in the summer months.

It also seems that springs with a cold snap in them give better summers, whereas the warm ones give washout summers.
Think of all those warm springs in the late 00's and terrible summers.

Though I don't remember a cold snap last spring and we still had a decent summer.

True, and those storms probably had a bit of polar maritime air in them which might count as cold air!

The scottish mountains had their snowiest winter for years last year so the maritime air mass we had last year was cool but just not as cold as this years maritime air.

Have to say it was really nice going for a walk under a clear blue sky today. Bring it on.

after the last 2 years we are due a good one. the jet stream profile is weak for the next couple of weeks. if the atlantic dies completely then a window opens for cold air to flood south, I would'nt be suprised if winter came back for a short few days with a NE influence later in the month

I'm well fed up with the cold weather at this stage, have had to scrape the windscreen in the morning probably 3-4 times nearly every week this winter. Bring on some warmth, long evenings and great skycapes with convection and thunderstorms. Models at the moment are showing a south westerly dominated first half to the month so mild but damp

Today was the first day that the car was "hot" when I got into it at lunchtime. Snow after the end of February should be banned as it's nothing more than sloppy mess. Roll on some nice warmth like we got in March 2012.

I recall a Paddys day parade about 15 years ago where it was roasting or am I imagining that
