UK Winter Forecast 2010/2011 Update
I have had a stream of questions in relation to the amount of snowfall that we are likely to receive in the UK this coming winter. As previously stated freezing temperatures will be the main concern, however heavy snowfall is also plausible as another major issue that we are facing due to the extra cloud cover and cooling that is generally produced during low solar activity. We must also consider the establishing La Nina as this is generally influential to the UK in terms of the change in global weather patterns, locations that tend to be wet will become wetter. We currently experience an ample amount of wet weather in the UK, so it would be adequate to expect even more precipitation. More precipitation during freezing temperatures with the increased cloud cover from low sunspot activity = HEAVY SNOWFALL!
