No, I would never go to Watford!

I lived in Yorkshire for a while and it snowed on the Dales in 2003 in November, then I returned south :D. Plus I was up in in Ullapool last year and it snowed then, granted that was end of November, moving into December. So ok, it doesn't snow a lot but it definately does snow in Scotland during November, especially up in the Highlands.

As for fog - I nearly walked off High Cup whilst walking the Pennine Way during September because of the fog. Plus my grandparents regularly moan about the fog once it gets into autumn/winter (they are in Yorkshire).

So ok, granted I may just have experience of a few "freak" incidents that have happened over the years rather than what is the norm...but one thing I think we can agree on is that the weather is changable.

Well, yes ok, if you are walking in the Pennines then perhaps you will see a bit of fog or some snow. But most of the country isn't on top of a massive hill/mountain!
(By the way what's wrong with Watford? ((It's also nowhere near Watford Gap. I would rather go to Watford than Watford Gap. Although to be honest, i dont think i have ever been to either...sorry I'm waffling....)))

WOW!!! 4 degrees?!? I lived in Mammoth Lakes California, it got about 15 degrees and that was blizzard weather in December!! I am soo excited! This will be a great experience, I can tell already!

Thanks again for the advise!!!

Hold on!! Thats 4 degrees Celcius, which is about 39.2 Farenheit. It wouldn't usually get much colder than that in November, even up North where I live. Although you do occasionally get the odd cold snap and it can start to feel colder than it really is because of the dampness in the air. And if it does snow, I wouldn't expect it to settle.

I've walked most of the Pennine Way - in November (stupid idea) and I regularly visit Yorkshire, though granted usually during March/May.

Just Googled the Watford Gap, in between Coventry and Northampton...lol, quite a bit different from Watford...ooops, no, Watford isn't too bad, just my auntie used to live there and jokes about it a lot. In which case, I've been to Watford a few times...but not Watford Gap, been to Northampton and driven through Coventry but thats about it.

4oF would be 15oC I think...
