    If the trough that's centered around Finland were a little farther East, and the Atlantic High pressure extended across Europe, it wouldn't be too far off the general pattern we have at present.

    Having said that, even the smallest of differences in the weather pattern can make enormous differences in the actual weather, which is why I'm talking a load of rubbish :lol:

    Must have been quite a varied month then, to have two major snow events and yet still come out close to average!
