Try 15c below normal when your normal is 0c.

That's what it was like here today.

Well we're not used to big continental temperature swings of that type in this maritime climate. Anyway I don't think we've had a period of such consistently below average temperatures for a long long time. So yes I'm sick of it and how boring and tedious it is getting. Especially if it's going to snow again.

At least you are probably not looking at snow haha. Ours won't be gone until April. By then it will take two weeks for the sidewalks to be clear of ice and puddles.

I know the Russian definition of summer is when the temperature is consistently above 15C though I'm not sure what "consistently" means, specifically (as in how many consecutive days are needed or if there is another method).

10C 24 hour mean seems rather cool for summer. That is about early April in NYC.

You live in the plains a flat expanse of land were very little moderation occurs and actaully this airmass is just as cold. Temps have been about 8c colder for weeks now. Weve have had 0c maxes here. The south of england had -2c which is 13c lower. So yea it is pretty cold.

Snow has not melted on mountainous areas for weeks...

Do you ever read the temp forum? We havent exceeded 6c in ages and this cold spell will continue.

Trust me if this continues for another two weeks it will be record breaking. No double digits in march at all.

I'm just insulted that he compared summers in Leeds to Buxton and Belfast.

I would agree yes because Leeds at least sees an average high of 21°C in summer but sadly Buxton's summers can be compared with Belfast.

Early spring- highs of 60-70f lows of 40-50f
Late spring- highs near 80 f lows of 55-60 f

Changes here are far more subtle than in a true four seasons climate but I still feel em.
