    Introduction

    This is the first post on the exceptionally wet and stormy UK winter of 2013-14. So many severe weather events occurred that they almost seemed continuous a lot of the time. So, to begin with, a timeline is necessary in order for readers elsewhere around the world to appreciate its sheer relentlessness. In a follow-up post, we will take a look at the outbreak of politics that accompanied it, and the scientific debate regarding causes and the possible influence of climate change. But first, a little light entertainment in the form of the run-up to the season in the popular press.

    "100 Days of Snow"? Well that forecaster needs to give up weather forecasting for the rest of their life...

    That 'forecaster' was the Daily Express!

    Being from the activist SKS site I can guess what the conclusion will be.Have a look at this from Paul Homewood,  which points out that it was not that unusual.http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/03/07/in-the-uk-it-was-much-wetter-in-1929/It was really only bad luck that the same quite small area got hit repeatedly.Further north it has been wet but certainly not record breaking -  in rainfall or mildness.

    As per usual you manage to pollute the thread with your ideological claptrap. And then supply a link to the asylum.

     

    This isn't what the thread was about but I'll just stick it in for reference and then back on topic.

     

    27 February 2014 - Early Met Office statistics for Winter 2014 show that England and Wales has already had its wettest winter in almost 250 years.
