    It is already warm for February - the monthly average is nearly 3 degrees above normal for this time of year according to the Central England Temperature from the Met Office. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/hadobs/...info_mean.html

    Over the next few days the temperature will fluctuate up and down as warm and cold fronts move through associated with the storms and low pressure systems.

    If the longer range models are to be believed, there is little chance of prolonged cold into March, and if (as currently forecast) high pressure builds from the south in a week or so, it could start to feel quite spring-like. However, the polar vortex is very strong and for now at least, any high that tries to build seems likely to get flattened fairly quickly by low pressure from the west.

    • Thank you. It doesn't feel too warm to me, but I suppose it could certainly be colder, and often is at this time of year.

      At least the snowdrops are out, and daffs not too far away.

      • Just wait for the daffs to come out. They almost always attract hail stones for some strange reason.
        My snowdrops are also out.

        • Seven Stones Light Bouy weather station is broken so no wind or wave height data.

          I don't suppose anyone is going to go out and fix it tonight.

          I live in a part of the UK with very mild winters. Please take this into account before thinking "if he is sowing those now...."

          • Storm Eunice tomorrow looks worse in just about every way than Dudley. Anywhere from Yorkshire southwards looks in for possible wind gusts upto 70-80mph with higher than that likely in the south. Snow and possible blizzards are likely further north especially on high ground.

            Keep an eye on the Met Office warning page https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather...ce/uk-warnings - it would not surprise me to see the current amber warning extended somewhat to the north east, and it would surprise me a lot if some areas are not upgraded to red.

              • Already got 2 huge trees down in village, I'm dreading tomorrow.
                Nestled somewhere in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Good soil, strong winds and a Giant Puffball!

                • I'm dreading tomorrow too. Supposed to be visiting my Mum in Harrogate, but cancelled that as I don't fancy driving in it.

                  As expected, there is now a red warning for parts of the south west where the strongest winds are expected.

                      • I have just spotted a daff on my allotment that is just about to open and attract those hail stones we always get when the daffs are in flower.

                          • Red warning now for the London area - I can't say I am in the least surprised.

                                Not too bad, actually. Psychologically, seems better because it's sunny.
