Here is part of a great blog from Paul Homewood concerning the Met Office’s Private Briefing Document For The Environment Agency....below is his section on the location of the Jet Stream, regular readers of Piers Corbyn would know the answer to this issue....
Following the wet summer in the UK last year, the Met Office provided the Environment Agency with a briefing document, giving an overview of the weather. This was discussed at the September Board Meeting of the Environment Agency, which Met Office officials attended.
As far as I know, this document, which I obtained through FOI, has never entered the public domain. It is brutally honest in admitting how little the Met’s scientists understand about what affects our climate, and, in particular, what caused the unusual weather last year. This is in stark contrast to many of the hyped up claims, made in public statements in the recent past by, among others, the Met Office themselves.
The full document is reproduced below, but there are four particular areas I wish to focus on.

Just a week ago Roger Harrabin mentioned a report from the Environment Agency about the UK having to adapt to more wet and dry extremes and I mentioned at the time that the real reason behind this weather scenario was down to the location of the Jet stream, something non of us have any control over. The location of the Jet Stream was somehow missing in this report as being key to these changes last year and yet it was mentioned several times in the media.
What is actually taking place with our climate are changes on the Sun (in this respect the reduction of Sunspots) and has nothing to do with co2 or the results of "man made" pollution. History has shown before that long periods of a calm Sun shift weather patterns i.e changes are made to the location of the Jet Stream
The above video from the BBC shows the current climate change being related to the Jet Stream and yet last week it was down to or suggested it was .....er the result of "man made climate change", who knows what next week will be the result of....click source for must see video from Matt Taylor and the BBC, this video may be taken off the screen soon so look at it ASAP

I'm not so sure Roger Harrabin and the Environment Agency have this analysis correct. I think the reason we have seen extreme Wet and Dry weather in the UK over the past year is due to changes in the location of the Jet Stream. This Jet Stream change was well reported in the media during 2012 and for some reason it is not given a prominent position in this report....the question from me is....are the authors of this daft analysis trying to add weight to the failed "man made" climate change theory?
If they are to win over the public that "man made" climate change makes the climate in the UK very dry as well as very wet then they had better make some space on the current list of "man made" climate change's. Lets not forget we already have winters being more snowy and summers becoming even warmer (regardless of it raining), will they ever run out of ideas in support of MMCC.....more to follow
UK must adapt for weather extremes, says Environment Agency by Roger Harrabin
Britain must become more resilient to both drought and flooding, Environment Agency chairman Chris Smith has said.
New figures from the agency show that one in every five days saw flooding in 2012, but one in four days saw drought.
Rivers such as the Tyne, Ouse and Tone fell to their lowest and rose to their highest flows since records began, within a four-month period of the year.

Above image taken from NetWeather.TV...no mystery going on here, unless your not familiar with the location of the UK, the big RED area to the South of the UK is the Jet Stream!.....
SkyNews.com...The position of the jet stream is being blamed for the UK's unseasonable cold snap which is due to last another week at least.
As Britain leaves behind what looks to have been the coldest March for more than 50 years, forecasters are warning it will stay cold for another week at least.
Meteorologists are blaming the bad weather on the position of the jet stream, a narrow band of very strong winds which tends to move from west to east across the Atlantic, bringing our weather systems with it.
Sky News weather presenter Isobel Lang said: "The jet stream is currently displaced well to the south of its usual position across the north Atlantic and Europe, located across the Azores, Spain and the Mediterranean.
"So the UK will remain stuck in the cold air to the north and it's set to stay cold for at least another week.

I noticed that the Proton Flux chart has taken an upturn today and although not as dramatic as some of the ones I have shown in the past, the Solar flare and location of the coronal hole from yesterday has certainly had it's influence on this.
This report from RT.com New England readies for historic storm, could well be the "Solar Climate Change" I was looking for to show a solar effect.
Ryan Maue (Major Nor'easter almost 100 knots at 900-hPa around equivalent Category 2 (but it's obviously not tropical))has mentioned that this storm has a lot of potential in respect of it's strength.
At the same time this event is occurring in the USA, there may well be a relocation of the Jet Stream in Western Europe over the weekend, giving a return to a milder flow of air to the UK in the next few days, as per the WeatherAction forecast for February.
This is another difficult call for Piers Corbyn to make, as there is a critical temperature for snow to fall, currently there would seem to be milder conditions edging into the West of England that would indicate rain instead of snow but it's not clear if in fact the Jet Stream will continue to ride further North and East at this stage, if it remains in the West then there will be snow in the North and East of the UK just as the Met Office have indicated. As you would expect Piers Corbyn and the Met Office differ on this weather scenario......stay tuned for more

Some huge changes were made to the Jet Stream during the recent R5+ period, who knows it looks as if this swell chart below was part of the process.
Tuesday's swell chart indicated that the previous day's high seas continued off Scotland

The UK could face biting winds and flurries of snow for another month, as the cold conditions show no signs of relenting in time for the Easter weekend - and are predicted to stick around for much of April.
And the root of the delay in the Spring weather is a jet stream, a high altitude belt of wind, which normally brings milder weather.
The jet stream has been pushed to an unusually southerly location, and is currently flowing around the north of Africa.

The latest indications are that the weather pattern will continue to favor colder storms that bring snow, in part, from the Central states to the East into early April.
The pattern may translate to a longer heating season, higher heating bills and more time, money and effort into snow removal later into the season than usual in some communities. The pattern can also negatively influence some spring weather-related activities.
The long-range weather patterns from the Central states to the Appalachians and even the East Coast point toward additional storms and just enough cold air when they come calling to bring more snow and a wintry mix, despite the official arrival of spring on Wed., March 20.

It’s known as the Great Arctic Cyclone, and when it roared out of Siberia last August, storm watchers knew it was unusual. Hurricane-like storms are very common in the Arctic, but the most powerful of them (which are still far less powerful than tropical hurricanes) tend to come in winter.
It wasn’t clear at the time, however, whether the August storm was truly unprecedented.
Now it is.
A study published in Geophysical Research Letters looks at no fewer than 19,625 Arctic storms and concludes that in terms of size, duration and several other of what the authors call “key cyclone properties,” the Great Cyclone was the most extreme summer storm, and the 13th most powerful storm -- summer or winter -- since modern satellite observations began in 1979.
