We're going into another ice age. Global cooling. Who knew? ???
For us here in the UK, "global warming" could indeed induce colder conditions. There's a not insignificant risk that the ocean currents that currently help to keep the UK warmer could break down - if they do, the UK will get colder.

In seriousness....that film, The Day After Tomorrow was based on that. The first 20 minutes (when it turned into a dull Disney 'I must find my wife and family' romp) was jaw-dropping and quite disturbing. Our average temperature in the UK is, what (?) 5 degreed higher than it would be without the GS? Here is the weather for the next week in Blanc Sablon, eastern coast of Canada, our sort of latitude:

Calling @Papa Lazarou who has a weatherly bent, for sage and onion comment.

Back in Sussex
9 degrees increase in temperature tonight. In just 4 hours. Unbelievable.
We went out for dinner last night, leaving home at 7:45. I had to scrape thick frost off the car for the drive into town. We went to Perch on the Pier and the pier itself was like an ice rink - I nearly stacked it three or four times.

By the time we came out, it had rained and it had all melted and the car was frost-free.

I was a bit too cocky when I got home though. I guess the small amount of altitude that Findon sits at was enough to keep surfaces frozen, as I couldn't get the car up the drive - it started sliding sideways, so I had to carefully take it back down to the road and then try to reach the front door on foot.

Usual autumnal conditions this morning though, and after a few lovely crisp frosty mornings making for a clean dog post-walk, it was a muddy quagmire on the downs and he took quite some cleaning when we got home.
