      everytime we get a warm spring we don't get a good summer. It appears that way in recent  years. Last time  we had a cold march like this was 2013 and that was one of the best summers in 10 years. .Normally we  get a settled spring  poor summer and then things pick up again in September.. lets hope we are getting our poor summer weather  this year in spring :)

      Mixed bag I reckon:sorry: plenty usable days , but no long heatwave like 2013, just a gut feeling

    3. weatherguru14

      would be nice to have a July like 2013.But I think most sould settle for a decent  settled summer. with plenty of sunshine.. With our climate as it is and not very predictable . we may get a warm  May this year that lasts into June :) 

  18. The sunshine is as strong today as September 25th doesn't feel it!!

      Remember 25th september last year well here felt like summer rather than the start of autumn

    4. IanR

      yes ,  winter having a last say has been rare over the last few springs apart from 2013,  However,  its been a regular theme over the last few years of summer having a last shout in late September and into October,    but it didnt really happen here last year, its felt like autumn all the way from September until March, and now winter has started proper it seems ,  its a  never ending  season,  I really miss warm sunny days, seem like they are rarer than hens teeth at the moment    

  19. Beeb saying next weekend will be mild for many but colder in Scotland
