    I'm not really qualified to make any sort of prediction, but I've been saying for some time that this winter is very likely to be colder than last (that wouldn't be hard). I think the most likely scenario is a continuation to some degree of the blocking pattern we have currently, with us on the borderline between a cold continent and warmer atlantic and the buckled jet stream wandering back and forth across us giving us some cold spells and milder intervals. I don't see at this stage (famous last words!) that we are likely to have the sort of long, unrelenting cold that characterized the exceptional winters of 1947 and 1963 - I don't think everything is set up correctly for that. But I do think that unlike the last 3 winters, there will be some cold snaps with frost and probably snow, which could, if things get stuck in a rut, last a week or 2.

    I could be completely wrong. The blocking over the pole could collapse south, the jet stream could flatten and the more normal westerly (warm, wet and windy) pattern could establish itself. The old weather lore says "Ice in November to bare a duck, winter will be slush and muck" - not sure about the duck, but basically its saying cold November, mild winter. I'm not sure whether the evidence actually supports that though.

    Agree, a more normal winter (but not TOO cold) would probably do the garden good.

    I just take it as it comes warm to hot in summer and cold to freezing in winter! Simples!
