    What do you think will will be the coldest temperature recorded this Winter, and where?

     

    I'm going to go for -12.3 in Braemar, Scotland.

    0K.

    It would so cool to see the record broken so something closer to 243K would be legendary.

    Out of interest does anyone know of the highest minimum recorded during a UK winter? (Not that I am hoping we break that particular record this winter!)

    Out of interest does anyone know of the highest minimum recorded during a UK winter? (Not that I am hoping we break that particular record this winter!)

    15.0C on 12 December 1994, Hawarden airport, Wales. That is actually warmer than the highest March minima of 14.2C and not far off the April one at 15.2C!

     

    January's is 13.0C on the 20th in 2008, St James Park, London.

     

    February's is 13.7C on the 13th in 1998...in ABOYNE, of all places!

     

    Interestingly, each winter month is represented by a different UK country.

    I'm not buying this mild winter malarkey as I'm still awaiting a cold spell from the previous two which never happened IMBY. So with that and the fact that the GLOSEA model predicts an average winter at best, I'm going for -20c somewhere in the Highlands with numerous others being well below zero both by day and night.

    It's amazing how a typical Atlantic-driven spell in a historically Atlantic dominated month has generated so much pessimism regarding the upcoming winter.

    Indeed MarchBlizzard. -25 easily achievable in the glens, but will it be recorded? In 09 and 10, IMBY, temps got down to around -15. And i'm 30 miles south of Glasgow.

    In Jan 2010 temps flirted with -18C, and that was just 8 miles south of Manchester!

     

    Despite the overall persistence of cold spells over the last few years there has been a lack of "serious" cold within them, for example, -25C and below. I think we hit -22 point something celcius in 09/10? Don't get me wrong, that's cold but far from challenging the overall records.

    Indeed, if the charts are still showing a similar set up come January then maybe then will be the time to start worrying.

    It's no secret that the lack of weather stations in the Highlands means many of the lowest temps go unrecorded (there's a body of opinion that states that -30'c has likely been breached numerous times) however I'm going to say -22'c at Dalwhinnie.

    And there's not a hope in hell that somewhere in the Highlands won't record at least -10'c, that would be very unusual.

    This October has generated pessimism, nothing to do with it.  Wait til we endure the second half Nov Posted Image

    But being realistic, double digit minuses in Highland Glens is almost a given.
