Was going more 2013 style but 2018 is a good fit for that pattern too.

Indeed your right. A spring 2013 but with the summer of 2018.

funnily enough I also think we're in for a great summer, just a gut feeling though.

Good summers are a rare thing to come by in this country, good springs are far more common.

2018 was the best summer since '95 for me but aside from that nothing really stands out. I was living in the UK for 2013 and from what I remember of 03 and 06 here in Donegal they were nothing special. I'd like to think we're overdue an above normal summer around here if nothing else

Funny enough we're probably overdue a boring forgettable spring as well, our spring's over the past decade have usually either been extremely cold or overly nice and sunny

Very unlikely to come anywhere near Spring 2020 which was perfection and our only feeling of summer in 2020. Spring 2021 could begin hinging on what February 2021 brings. If we are in a cold and blocked pattern for February then this could persist into March 2021 and deliver a cold start to the month. At some point the Atlantic is going to come back with it's game face on and bring several weeks of relentless westerlies and areas of low pressure. We are likely to get the odd easterly and northerly dive but these will probably be fairly short lived and hopefully the northerlies more orentated to the first half of Spring. Overall I think Spring 2021 will prove quite wet and some swings in temperature at times.

I've a feeling we may have a half decent summer this year, not 2018 levels but half way between a decent overall summer and a summer similar to 2019. Quite a few atlantic driven periods but some more positive pushes from the Azores at times and not the complete failure at every turn like last summer.

.......anyone?


I just want this winter to be done and over with, we haven't had any nice weather since basically early june 2020, it's been raining almost non-stop since then. I am longing for some sunny dry weather, doesn't have to be too warm, just dry and sunny. I think we deserve it after the last few months we've put up with, not only the weather but also the virus.

Looks like nothing but Atlantic south westerlies for the rest of the month, hints of high pressure building by the end of the month but too far out to have any confidence. Realistically its usually April before spring really starts to take hold

Very spring-like day today.
Much needed. Out for a walk in the park and you could tell everyone was happy and relieved that we finally have a nice day.

Hopefully in the next week or 2 we'll get some dry weather, I really am ready for spring after all this cold and rain. From what I've seen on here there looks to be some dryer weather heading our way, though this will probably change.

It is on Monday! Honestly let's put the winter behind us, it's quite dismal to read rampers rubbing their hands with glee at the chance of more cold at the end of February.

Let it go!
