Weather in America vs. in the UK

Post by st.alfonzo »

Is the weather in the UK as unpredictable as the weather in Indiana?
A few days ago it was around 50-70 degrees Fahrenheit, but then next day, we had 2 inches of snow!

You people are lucky!

Where i live in Canada (Toronto to be exact) if you add up all the snow we've gotten since ~December, January, it comes up to 170cm!

And i had to shovel all that!

We have bulls#it here in Latvia, there was no winter at all. Christmas and new year was all dry. 5 years back we used to have -20 cel. But this winter it was around -2 to -4 max. I have only one word to this- GLOBAL WARMING.

I think where I live (which isn't in Europe), it used to snow mainly in December and January, but one year (2004), there was snow in November for two days, and then there was very little snow, even on Christmas, and on that day it was very sunny out side. After 2005 came, it snowed sometime in January, and the snow wouldn't melt until sometime in April. I think that was the longest we had snow. After that, for us, it usually snows in December, and January, and we're usually still prone to getting snow in February. However, last night it just rained, and today, it's all gloomy and wet, and we currently have no snow. Also, I heard that one time, back around 1997, we had a snowstorm in April.

I live about an hour from Toronto, (towards Kitchener) and we are getting a good dumping of snow ; I am totally looking forward to going to Manchester UK to meet some friends in July though.

hmm, the thing is we can't really do much about it, it depends on the weather in space like if there is a lot of solar flares then there will be some warm periods.

You Austrailians are in a different hemisphere than us. Where we live, back in December, January, and parts of February, we had snow, but it's all melted now.

interesting fact is that in the summer you come here to the Golden Horseshoe (Toronto area) you will face those same temps here sometimes

Global Warming
Since January 2005, I've been in the Operating Systems Prototype Community. I've enjoyed learning more these past four years about the development of the Windows and Macintosh operating systems, as well as learning of new user-based projects that optimize system performance.

Storms are due to hit the UK tonight. We're to expect 80MPH winds, very heavy rain, sleet, hail and snow. Oh joy...

He's right, the UK doesn't, but when we do, its usually not that bad anyway. Maybe a foot or so, nothing much more.

Well its morning and we have winds of 80mph, heavy rain and lots more to follow. The main motorways are closed to high-sided vehicles and many flights are canceled. Also ferries are canceled and railways have had temporary speed limits imposed.

If thats not bad, I'd like to know what is

I had An Idea

Post by st.alfonzo »

What if there was a, for lack of a better word, Weather Reporter on this site, where you entered your location, and it spat out your forecast?
I would seem fitting, as I see some people on this topic are asking what the weather would be in their area. Oh, and in NE Indiana, the snow is melting and birds are singing!
