Top 9 Moments of The Winter 2012/2013

It was something that got many people talking about what December may hold for us. Some remained positive but for others they thought it wasn't good enough and cancelled winter before it had even properly started.

[center][size=5][b]8. December a month of the models taunting us with eye watering charts but never really came to much.[/b][/size][/center]


The models through December showed some amazing charts the GFS 18z lived up to it's name a few times and proved why its called the pub run. December overall was colder than average but didn't bring the mega snowfalls the models had promised.

The Atlantic driven weather appeared over the Christmas and New Year holidays most people were too drunk to care though. Anyway the low pressure system here brought gusts over 80mph to Scotland before the year 2012 came to a close. Some GFS members had this low looking rather nasty at one point down to 930mb.

A phrase commonly used when we get so close to something cold and snowy but either we see a big downgrade or the Atlantic crashes through. This pretty much summed up the whole of January so many close calls but nothing note worthy in the end.

As shown on the image above a huge strong low happened towards the end of January that broke a record.


The above image is NOGAPS trying to forecast this low pressure a very early attempt from it and just crazy. It's so deep it goes off the scale.

After months of waiting for something to happen, toys were laying on floor in the model out put discussion room, people had said winter is over. February made it all worth while by bringing cold weather with some sunshine as well.

March in general was incredible with plenty of cold weather around for the whole month. This winter to me reminds us all that the cold snowy weather that we all want can arrive at the end. Be patient, sit tight and enjoy the ride next year folks.

A great achievement for Net Weather happened during February it turned 10 years old. Members of the forum congratulated Paul on the huge success.

[center]Wait this isn't a weather event? I know but it's a very great moment for Net Weather on Tuesday the 8th of January as the ECM hit 144 hours like this,[/center]


It left Ian Brown lost for words for possibly the first time ever. Currently it is the most liked post on Net Weather with over 160 likes.
