UK Met Office: Coldest Winter in over a decade but would have been even colder without global warming
By the blogowner, honestclimate, February 26, 2009
Extract from UK Met Office news report:
Mild weather is expected to see out what remains of winter. Despite this, it is expected to be the coldest UK winter since 1995/96, according to provisional Met Office figures.
The low temperatures have also been accompanied at times by heavy snow. During early February, the heaviest snowfall for 18 years was experienced over many areas of the UK.
Reading further along
Natural variability of climate means that the UK will continue to see spells of colder weather at times. Although, if it had not been for the general warming already observed in global temperatures, this winter may well have been even colder.
Yes, thank goodness for global warming!
