Are there areas that have remained frostless in the UK this past winter? Because several areas of the US South have.

Yep. St Mary's, Isles of Scilly had a low of 3.8C/38.8F this past winter... Portland, Dorset had a low of 1.2C/34.2F & I'm sure other coastal locations had a frost free winter too...

I specifically said the December-feb period. Yep totally I'm trying to make Raleigh warmer than it is. You are accusing me of something you can't back up, I have never ever lied or made a false statement about Raleigh climate, so you can keep accusing me of something that just is not true. Again the data and information is available for everyone to see. Lol. Keep trying, your trolling won't work on me.

Interesting.

Frostless areas in the South this past winter include South Texas and Peninsular Florida, some Atlantic coastal islands off Georgia and the Carolinas, coastal Louisiana (New Orleans, Grand Isle), and northern coastal Texas (central Houston, Galveston, etc).

I couldn't find any stats on London; it was a bit foggy


Again, I find it hard to believe that London gets less frost nights a year on average than Raleigh.


On a different note, I like your thumbs up Smilie. It makes me feel positive despite the daunting task of looking up Londons below freezing nights a year. Here, now do it for me. Lol

And you failed to mention the other frosts not in that period lol... Quite OK for you to accuse people from the UK of trying to make the climate there seem warmer though isn't it

And you clearly did make a false statement which you were called out on, no trolling from me...

Well as myself & others have said Raleigh does indeed get more frosts than London, not sure why you find that hard to believe

And as much as I would like to find the data for you, I can't be bothered (maybe someone else will) but the data is out there on the old inter web for all to (find) see...

Both places suck ass, but I think the South has some climates that are not TOO bad, like Asheville NC, or Raleigh, or Wilmington NC
