    I was thinking of how great the weather was last year during the Peterborough Show! Almost Rock Concert weather! Will Spring arrive soon? When date do you think will be the earliest we will feel warm sun on our backs? As for summer what are your predictions for this year? For those of you somewhere sunny in Europe I am talking specifically about UK!

    What with all this global warming I very much doubt we will see any summer at all. It's serious stuff :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    We were going to stay somewhere in the peaks between Newark and Chester but from the weather report for next week, it's going to be very cold, going down as far as -5 at night. Maybe we'll just go home. :BigGrin:

    Looks like I struck lucky, I had the first week in February in a cottage near Sidmouth, chilly (but the cottage had a nice log burner), blue skies every day and lambs in the field alongside the cottage, that,s the time to explore the Jurassic coast, bugger all traffic about, park where and when you like:thumb:

    Just looked at the BBC Monthly forecast & there are no signs of any marked improvement into the middle of April. I do find the BBC a little pessimistic however & things can just change even if the computer says no. If I remember right & I was only a young un at the time but 1976 had similar weather at this time of year & looked what happened there. :Cool::Cool::Cool:

    The forecast for Suffolk this weekend was crap, we went anyway and had great bright dry and sunny weekend leaving much rain at home. Took the waterproofs anyway but didn't need them.:thumb: Sea was a bit cold though.:Smile:

    Summer of '76

    I remember that summer, fantastic weather for weeks. Trouble was it was hard to keep cool. Next best summer for me was 2003 ( I think), not as hot but long periods of warm sunny weather. I don't count 1980 to 1986 as I was working in Cyprus and summer lasted 10 months of the year. At any rate I think we are overdue some decent weather. Global warming permitting that is!

    You're spot on there. In Sussex Summer started around midday on Easter Sunday. We were all wearing heavy coats due to the foul weather, at lunchtime the sun came out and people were flaking out from the heat. It didn't rain until October.:Cool:

    I'm quietly confident, we've had a couple of poor summers on the bounce, law of averages says things have to improve so cheer up everyone it can only get better ( a lot better) . :Cool::thumb:

    Check out this Site: london-weather.eu it gives a month by month weather breakdown for every year since 1900. See if your recollections are accurate!!
