2018–19 European winter

The 2018–19 European winter occurred from late 2018 to early 2019. Notable events included the early snows in Spain and intense flooding in Italy, in cities such as Venice, the intense snow storms which affected central Europe in January, the snow storms in Greece over the New Year period, as well as the end of February; as well as severe winter weather, there was exceptional warmth across western Europe in the last week of February. Parts of France had their warmest February day on record, with temperatures up to 28.1 °C at Eus on the 27th. Many places in the United Kingdom broke temperature records, including the national record in Kew Gardens, at 21.2 °C on the 26th. Unlike previous winters, a developing El Niño was expected to influence weather patterns across Europe, although the affect is not known. Winter 2018–19 began in the Northern Hemisphere on the winter solstice, which in 2018 occurred on 21 December 2018, ended at the March equinox, which in 2019 occurred on 20 March 2019. Based on the meteorological definition, the first day of winter is 1 December and the last day 28 February.

However, as is the case wintry weather is not confined to these definitions. Accuweather released its European forecast on 18 October 2018, they highlighted that conditions in North Western Europe and Western Scandinavia would be wet and unsettled, with frequent windstorms in the United Kingdom, Northern France and Western Norway. Southeastern Europe was predicted to have occasional storms, with a swathe of warmer than average temperatures covering most of Portugal and Spain, as well as Italy and extending as far east as South Western Ukraine. Most of Eastern Europe, including parts of Scandinavia were predicted to have'cold shots', this area extended from eastern Sweden down to Ukraine; the most active part of the storm season was predicted to be from January to February, with such cities as Manchester, UK Belfast, UK and Glasgow, UK at the highest risk of impacts from storms. A cold spell with the severity of that of earlier in 2018, The beast from the east, was not expected. Accuweather predicted that in December, storms would be most frequent in Northern France.

Despite predicting above normal rainfall, they didn't expect extreme flooding, seen in the winter of 2013–14. Storms were predicted to continue into April. Unsettled weather was predicted to last throughout much of the season for Germany, too. Despite unsettled weather in Northern Europe, lasting warmth was predicted in Southern Europe, with drought not being a concern as a result of early rainfall winter. Cold shots were predicted to reach as far east as the Czech Republic. During the final week of August, temperatures started to decline across Northern and Central Europe, with frosts in the UK and heavy snow in Austria and Germany accompanied by temperatures below freezing. In Austria, the city of Salzburg reported 5 cm, with nearby mountains reporting as much as 40 cm. September 2018 saw the start of the Autumn season in Europe, with the first storms of the 2018–19 European windstorm season, Ex-Hurricane Helene striking western Europe on the 15th and 16th; the first named storm, affected the UK and Ireland on the 18th.

Parts of Germany and the Netherlands experienced record cold toward the end of the month, with Germany recording a national record low for September of −5.0 °C in Nuremberg. In the Netherlands, De Bilt recorded the countries lowest maximum temperature for 23 September, reaching 10.9 °C. In the month, the 30th was the coldest September temperatures in the Netherlands for 47 years, with temperatures falling to −1.5 °C. In the United Kingdom, Katesbridge in County Down, Northern Ireland recorded the coldest September temperature in the country since 2012, at −3.6 °C. This was the record low for Northern Ireland in September. For most parts of the Alps, the first substantial snowfall of the season occurred on the 1st. Most areas received 20 cm to 30 cm; the snow line was as low as 1400 m. From the 13th to the 15th, Ex-Hurricane Helene battered the Iberian peninsula with heavy rains up to 180 mm in places, winds gusting up to 110 mph. Storm Adrian was a severe storm that affected Western Europe and Northern Africa from 27 October until 3 November.

It brought heavy, flooding rains to Venice, with officials estimating that 75% of the city was underwater, with depths exceeding for only the 5th time in recorded history. The system brought winds of up to 117 mph; the system brought heavy snowfall to parts of France, with upper areas receiving up to 50 cm with lower elevations seeing up to 15 cm There was a cold snap in the United Kingdom at the end of the month, with temperatures as low as −9 °C at St Harmon, Wales on the 30th. This was the lowest reading in the UK in October since 1993. Halloween was predicted to be one of the coldest on record since a temperature of −10.6 °C was recorded in 1926. This period saw heavy snowfall across North East England and Southern Scotland, with some places experiencing a'white halloween' and the coldest day time temperatures in October since the 2008 cold snap. Depths of up to 10 cm were recorded. Overall, the UK recorded its coldest October since 2012. Weather during November was benign, with little noteworthy occurrences.

However, there were 3 named storms, Beatriz and Diana, which were named by the meteorological agencies of France and Portugal. The most severe of these storms was Diana, which produced a wind gust of 112 mph at Cairngorm, United Kingdom. Over Scandinavia, there was an unusual lack o

Radio City (album)

Radio City is the second album by the American rock group Big Star. Released in 1974, Radio City was recorded during 1973 at Memphis' Ardent Studios. Though not a commercial success at the time, it is now recognized as a milestone album in the history of power pop music. Critically acclaimed upon its release, the record sold poorly due to a lack of promotion and the distribution problems of the band's struggling record label, Ardent Records; the album included "September Gurls" and "Back of a Car", which remain among the most famous Big Star songs. The original Ardent Records LP featured record-jacket photographs by noted photographer William Eggleston, including The Red Ceiling on the cover. Eggleston was a close friend of band member Alex Chilton; some of the outtakes from the album include "I Got Kinda Lost", "Gone with the Light", "Motel Blues", "There Was a Life". The singles released from the album were "O My Soul" and "September Gurls". Radio City's reputation has grown since its release, with many critics and listeners of the opinion that it is not only the definitive power pop album but one of the finest rock-music albums.

As writer Richard Meltzer told an interviewer, "Big Star...is the means through which most bands today who are influenced by the Beatles get their dose of the British Invasion." It was voted number 319 in the third edition of Colin Larkin's All Time Top 1000 Albums. In 2003, the album was ranked number 405 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, again in 2012. Rolling Stone magazine ranked the song "September Gurls" as number 178 on its 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Sound & Vision ranked it number 43 on its Top 50 Albums of All Time list. In late 1972, following the release of the debut album, #1 Record, founding member Chris Bell left the group and the band became inactive for four months. Bell had contributed to the music and lyrics of "O My Soul" and "Back of a Car"—songs which Alex Chilton recalls were written "by committee"— but receives no official credit. Chilton, aided by drummer Richard Rosebrough and at times by bassist Danny Jones, completed the recording of "Mod Lang", "She's a Mover", "What's Going Ahn" without Jody Stephens or Andy Hummel.

After performing at the Rock Writers Convention in 1973, the band returned to the studio to start work on Radio City. On its release in February 1974, Radio City met with general acclaim. Record World judged the musicianship "superb". However, sales were thwarted by an inability to make the album available in stores. Stax Records, primary distributor for the band's Ardent Records label, had placed distribution of its catalog in the hands of the much larger Columbia Records; as a result, the album achieved only minimal sales of around 20,000 copies at the time. Giving an "A" rating, Robert Christgau calls the album "Brilliant, addictive", observing meanwhile that "The harmonies sound like the lead sheets are upside down and backwards, the guitar solos sound like screwball readymade pastiches, the lyrics sound like love is strange," concluding his review with, "Can an album be catchy and twisted at the same time?" AllMusic's William Ruhlmann considers that the band's follow-up to #1 Record "lacked something of the pop sweetness" of the debut but captured "Alex Chilton's urgency on songs that made his case as a genuine rock & roll eccentric.

If #1 Record had a certain pop perfection that brought everything together, Radio City was the sound of everything falling apart, which proved at least as compelling." Side one "O My Soul" – 5:40 "Life Is White" – 3:19 "Way Out West" – 2:50 "What's Going Ahn" – 2:40 "You Get What You Deserve" – 3:08Side two "Mod Lang" – 2:45 "Back of a Car" – 2:46 "Daisy Glaze" – 3:49 "She's a Mover" – 3:12 "September Gurls" – 2:49 "Morpha Too" – 1:27 "I'm in Love with a Girl" – 1:48 Big Star Alex Chilton – guitar, vocals Andy Hummel – bass guitar Jody Stephens – drums, vocalsAdditional musicians Danny Jones – bass guitar Richard Rosebrough – drums In 1981, the Searchers covered "September Gurls" on their album Love's Melodies, thus bringing full circle the influence that British Invasion bands had had on Big Star's sound. In 1986, The Bangles covered "September Gurls" on their album Different Light; the Gin Blossoms released a cover of "Back of a Car" on the 2002 deluxe edition of their album New Miserable Experience.

In 2011, Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional covered "I'm in Love with a Girl" on his album Covered in the Flood. In 2015, Lucero included "I'm in Love with a Girl" on their LP. Jody Stephens sang back up vocals and the title comes from the song. Lucero recorded the album at Ardent studios with Jody Stephens "popping in". Eaton, Bruce. Big Star's "Radio City".
