Last years winter thread was created on the 11/8. I have been waiting to see who will get there first.

It is kind of scary that this appeared so close to the same date.

I read that the El Niño likelihood this year has been down graded. El Niño years have been associated with greater chances of snow - I think! Does this hold up for Ireland?

We've barely had a flake of snow here since Winter 2010, I get the feeling we will get a bit more lucky this winter.

Not that it means anything as it's not winter yet. But it's a bit cold for August....
