    Hi guys this is my first post. I am a lover of the cold weather and hope we have a cold winter. However with 18C forcasted on Thursday I just wondered what the record November temp is?

    Interesting to see November 1946 up there with the record at 21.7c. Little did they know what would follow later that winter! :)

    yes its quite suprising that the temps were so high given the remainder of winter for that year. how did the 38/39 winter pan out?

    welcome to the forum PG, hope you enjoy it :)

    Oooh, now there's an omen.

    Strange though that the record was set before GW, well before it. I wonder what temperature those exact synoptics would yield these days......a 22.5 or 23 perhaps. That would be incredible that would.

    a good question for Mr Data to answer.

    Indeed it has Don.

    Just for interest, here are the record coldest days of November

    NOVEMBER

    -23.3C -10F Braemar (Grampian) 14 Nov 1919

    -22.8C - 9F Braemar 15 Nov 1919

    -21.7C - 7F Perth (Tayside) 14 Nov 1919

    -21.1C - 6F West Linton (Borders) 14 Nov 1919

    -21.1C - 6F Balmoral (Grampian) 14 Nov 1919

    -20.9C - 5.6F Kinbrace (Highland) 30 Nov 1985

    Interesting that only the Scottish areas got the coldest temperatures, as opposed to later months where the likes a Shropshire featured. A sure sign that the PFJ tends to move southward quite quickly, but never early enough to make an impact on southern frost hollows. A bit of pattern matching might be of interest

    38/39 was an exceptionally wet winter and pretty mild overall. However, there was a great cold spell through much of December 1938, and 1938 was a true White Christmas year, with most places having several inches of snow on the ground.

    Early November warm spells really do mean absolutely nothing, either for November or for the coming winter, so theres no need to worry. Enjoy the mildness that coming up. We probably won't see temps of 17-18c again until March/April.

    Absolutely....and by a splendid coincidence I find I have this photo of my mother standing in the middle of the main road in Whitford, just 6 miles from Prestatyn, on the 4th February 1947 - exactly three months after the Nov high record was set!!

    Enjoy - and dream!

    PS My father's diary records frustratingly sparse details of the trip back to London four days later:

    "Left W(hitford) 10 a.m. Nearly stuck in snowdrifts. Train left Mostyn 45 mins late. Went by GWR fr(om) Chester. Arrd 6.20 p.m." A long journey - how would the trains fare nowadays, I wonder?

    Some pretty impressive lows there!

    Just for fun, I'll throw in the record low for my current location:

    Helena, Montana - record -39oC on 16th November 1959. It seems that November 1959 had an extremely severe spell even for here:

    November 4th: -21

    November 5th: -21

    November 12th: -29

    November 13th: -37 (2nd coldest on record)

    November 15th: -36

    A particularly punishing period of weather it would seem and one of the top ten coldest on record. Incidentally, November 1985 was the coldest of all...

    But the way our climate is going, who knows?
