It has been a so-so summer this year. Very hut June, but then disappointing July and first week of August. Statistically speaking about my location we had 38 days of thunderstorms within 15km and 22 direct hits. Multiple times over 30mm cumulative rainfall, last week 60mm in a day! The forecast is for a great next 2 weeks so if we have settled back end of August then I rate it 6/10. It has been very hot in south western part but disappointing in north east and eastern SK.

Don't worry, you'll have 10 meters of snow in another few months(depending were you are) and the Bears and wolves will be down in the village looking for food

Will do some more detailed work on this around October, but my research indicates a high probability of frequent deep low pressure areas in the mix. Unless that combines with blocking, it favours mild/wet/windy as the basic theme as in 2013-14.

My feeling is this will be a winter with various opportunities for snow due to the sst temperature profile, low solar activity and the pacific state. There will be deep areas of low pressure, but these will have a tendency to pass to the south of Ireland, opening the door for north easterlies from time to time, but i don't forsee a three months freeze, unfortunately. Just as well, i suppose, because in that scenario civil war would break out on this forum- someone has to think of the moderators

That's exactly what I had in mind, if I remember correctly, the South of England was more affected by the storms of winter 2013/14 than the North, which is why I mentioned a less extreme version of that winter as a possibility, I feel like these storms are going to track further south than usual.

Further south of Ireland, or further south in Ireland?

Both, some lows could pass north of us but further south than usual while other lows track south of Ireland. Don't count on it though as long range forecasting is impossible!

December 2013 had the storms tracking to the north mainly and it was the wettest month on record in Scotland until December 2015 whilst January and February mainly had the storms tracking through the country. There was a fair amount of blocking and a strong enough Siberia High but it was all in the wrong place to produce cold.

The mountains near Longyearbyen are snow capped. Quite unusual for this time of year.

I think it’s best for us all (cold and snow lovers!) not to expect much and then we might be pleasantly surprised.
It's the hope that kills ya isn't it!! I got sucked in badly last Winter hoping for a big snow event, even though the reality of these things happening aren't great, will certianly stay more grounded.

You must be new here, this thread kicks off this time every year and it's brilliant, great read right into the new year, I love it.
