    Welcome to the winter discussion forum for the winter of 2015/16. 

     

    It's the first time we've started a new forum for a season in this way, and we hope this will become a great place to discuss all things wintry during the upcoming winter. 

     

    I've already moved a few winter related topics in here, please shout if you think any others ought to be here too. As we progress through the upcoming winter, we'll open up additional regular topics, such as a 'will it snow' thread for when cold weather is approaching, general cold weather discussions and others. 

     

    If you have any ideas for this new part of the forum, please shout!

     

    For those who may not have come across it yet, we also have a winter area on the site, for easy access to all the winter based forecasts, snow risk charts, the weather type radar, xmas forecast etc:

    Thanks, and here's to a great winter - whatever it may bring.

     

    Paul

    Timely thread.

     

    Some suggestions for threads as follows:

     

    - A winter 2015/2016 forecasts thread. This one I feel should be set up quite shortly allowing people to post there forecasts for the winter ahead. We have the winter 2015/2016 thread at the moment for this but naturally is being used for winter 2015/2016 general discussion.

     

    - A winters past thread. I really think we need one of these, you will notice a significant amount of the current winter 2015/2016 thread is clogged up with discussions of winter past. I know there is a separate discussion area for past events, but feel it would be good to have a specific thread just to talk and reminisce about winters past etc.

     

    -A winter 2015/2016 general chat/ discussion thread. This should be used for people who just want to remark on the winter as a whole, i.e. there thoughts ruminations etc on how things are going, how people feel about it, general observations. It shouldn't be used to talk about the models, or display opinion on the models, we have the separate model threads for that.

     

    We have the regionals for people who want to talk about things in there neck of the woods. We should maintain cold spell discussions etc to talk about impending on embedded cold spells, however these threads can become a bit of a hotchpotch for all sorts of discussions and loose direction preety quickly, they need to be heavily monitored.

     

    When will snow thread - good idea for this one... its tiring reading posts when will we get snow etc.

     

    Snowfall events - this is a good idea for a thread, people could use this to talk about specific snowfalls, how much snow they have recorded, amounts and timings for potential events.

     

    Just some thoughts.

    I think we should delete this entire section. The reason being that like a watched pot never boiling, reverse psychology also works on snow, I've heard.

    Stever Murrs scale needs to be in here, although some of the vids aren't working anymore.

    This was such a good idea, Paul!
