Winter Weather 2015/16 : See Mod Note Post #1

The summer is almost over (a week left) and with such a disappointing season I'm starting to think about winter.

What weather effects should we expect from'El Niño'?


Mod Note
We agreed last year to confine sensationalist tabloid weather stories to the Weather in the Media thread so please post any tabloid headlines/links there.
Thanks

I'll take anything as long its not rain, saturated ground and floodng.

Dry Sunny with top temps of -5 will do nicely

Add occasional snow to that and then you have an ideal winter.

A lot of snow would be nice, but due to the dreaded IOM Shadow, i'll take occasional.

This is not offered as a prediction but as long as that colder than normal Atlantic pool remains a factor, it would be difficult for the atmosphere to respond in any other way than unsettled to stormy and not particularly mild either. This feature has been quite stubborn over the past several months and shows little signs of changing soon.

This would also pretty much guarantee that the autumn won't be a lot different in trends from this past summer, at best it would be near normal and likely wetter and slightly cooler than average.

I'd prefer to be in the IOM shadow than in west Clare!

No snow, dry with occasional rain and not dropping below 10c.

Thanks.

Either your looking at the wrong season or the wrong country!

It's that time of year again.

This thread is permanently open on my browser/ tablet and my F5 is ready and waiting.

I hope for cold and snowy weather but I am expecting stormy weather instead with above average temperatures.

I hope America don't steal Winter 3 years in a row

I really hope you are wrong. I thought last years winter was lovely if we get another winter like that I will be very happy barely had any reason to turn the heating on at all as it was a lovely mild winter.
Another mild winter please.

People thought we were due one last year too. Statistically we rarely get bad winters like 5 years ago so you might be waiting.
