Winter bites over parts of Southern England

Hello, I am still breathing and I admit, my commitments as a blogger have been somewhat slipping under the radar. As for now, this will be a brief posting. I simply want to illustrate why the current weird weather pattern is occurring (yes it is very cold) and as to what the future may hold. Today, the 4th November saw some lying snow in parts and for others, simply cold wet rain. I personally missed the fun and games but the following, courtesy of BBC weather illustrates how difficult in reality, the actual task of forecasting snowfall, truly is.

Looking further ahead (longer-term forecasting) is an equally unenviable task but someone who is up for such things is Matt Hugo, as shown below.

    Hello Tony, he weather seems to have been crazy this month, is it all down to climate change?

      Who knows really. There are still as many sceptics as there are believers. I look to nature for the answers as you well know and I think us humans need to recognise that when we suffer, the natural world does too. African folk survive the devastating droughts on an annual basis. The indian continent copes with yearly monsoonsal rains. Why on earth is the UK so unprepared when we have some of the best scientific advisors and research bodies in the globe. Whilst not a prediction as such but once the deluges have cleared the southern and western regions, look out for a probable snowfest as we enter December.
