No dude it's not winter. We're still in autumn until December.

Posters are commenting on the number of days with ho sun spots throughout 2018. It can be a pointer to a colder than average winter on the way.

Not sure sure if this was posted before but is an excellent table of the mean sunspots numbers from 1700 to 2014. It also shows years of min and Max.

November is the last month of Autumn.

What were the number of spotless days back in 2010? Is this year looking like it will surpass that number?

Interesting. If i'm not mistaken, the table you posted seems to suggest that sometimes, it's the following year after a large number of spotless days that ends up being notable wintry.

I suppose that there is a delay between a reduction in solar activity and active weather, a bit like turning down the heat on an electric cooker.
