Nigel, you seem to be saying as you did not get a frost, no-one got a frost. The map you show has exactly the temperature range Stephen said. Believe it or not there are people growing exotics in cold spots, and from their point of view it must be a pretty accurate call.Nigel wrote:stephenprudence wrote:It did get cold last night but not as cold as expected, which is a good thing, and we have to take the positives from that.
Stephen, As far as I can see the reliable forecasts were accurate. Its the best start to spring for years , spring is something to enjoy, so i am going to stop reading the endless diatribes of daily express style depression and gloom and enjoy the weather , it just stresses me too much reading it.
I had -1.2C and is the 5th airfrost in 2014 That makes me a cold area for the number of frosts this year.
From a forecast point of view with winds veering around to NE that is the end of any promise of spring for at least the next few days. Here, spring arrives when the NE'lies stop.
