I remember really icy cold winters, often starting in November and getting worse in stages right up until March. I did once get caught in a snow drift at 7am or thereabouts on the back road from Kilmarnock going through a back road in Symington on way to my early shift. This was in the middle of April in the early 80s.

Now, for the past few years the weather during these months is warmer than ever. Not hot by any means but certainly not freezing cold.

I can only put this down to global warming!

I remember those winters too that Carmella mentioned, but we also had mild wet winters too, we may see the temperatures plummet before the end of the winter.

Presumably Carmella was out of the country winter 2018 ....the Beast from the East and then the mini beast from the east.

No I was right here in Ayrshire, and I do remember it, perhaps it was milder where I am👍

Well being rural it’s often colder, just as in summer it is often warmer, personally I much prefer colder weather, so this is a good time of year for me!

I like my seasons to be seasons too, i like my summers to be warm and sunny and winters to be cold and frosty, i hate mild wet and windy weather.

If our summers get warmer I will want to get air conditioners in my house, 20c is as high as I can tolerate!

Last week I fell asleep in the afternoon with all the windows open. Woke up drenched in sweat.

Where it was in Glasgow was just as mild. I stayed with my brother right through winter and never had the heater on once. Only time I felt the cold was when having a shower.

My goodness you must have been way too hot. I could take the heat when I was younger but not now.
