Going to be a Cold Winter??

The long term weather forecast for the coming winter – The Arctic Oscillation is going to be favourable for us this year.

Instead of the normal +ve AO with low pressures to the north and high pressures to the south which bring a series of wet, warm & windy periods over us, we are going to have more of a -ve AO with high pressure to the north and low pressure to the south. This will create a more subdued jet stream with blocking colder spells with lots of cold Arctic air with dry quiet weather (and, for us, hopefully snow beforehand to make the most of it).
