Always happens.....except in 2010 and the beast.
Well, yes that event has led to unrealistic expectations, if you are holding out for that each time there is talk of cold weather you are are likely to be disappointed.
I am hoping for a 2- three day cold spell with a polar low - just like the ones we use to know. I think we can get that at some stage if the current pattern in the northern hemisphere holds. Several icedays in a row are unlikely in a mobile regime, but if the jet has a tendency to stay to the south, we may get decent arctic incursions at times.
