  1. An absolute cracker of a late Autumn's day today .. frost which lasted pretty much all day and not getting above 2'C

  2. A harsh frost tonight, snow for half of us before Monday and chilly all around ... but apparently that's no where near enough for some.

      Well said. Some folk can't see the wood for the trees.

    2. hilldweller


      It amazes me too!! Some folk want wall to wall frontal snow from 1st Dec to 1st march ...

    3. AutumnMists


      Of course, we all dream for that ... but most know it's impossible and therefore it's best not to blab on about it

  3. I wonder, will my walk on the local Pennine hills consist of walking on snow next weekend? Today we have had bright sunshine :)

  4. Horrible weather. Light started to fade at 6:30 and the rain started at 3

  5. What's with the GFS 6Z run after Tuesday next week? Where an earth has that come from? Hopefully an inaccurate run ..

  6. A beautiful day :D Cloudy this morning, wall to wall this afternoon. Warmer but by no means hot during weekend, unsettled next week

      Relative to average its hot but isn't 'hot' as such... But then its all relative & subjective really!

    3. wimblettben


      For September it is unusually hot. But in Summer it is just the usual hot day as it should be.

    4. AutumnMists


      I wouldn't regard 27'C as too hot. Over 30'C I would. It doesn't matter whether it's in September or not

  7. It seriously now goes dark too early for my liking. I hate it.

      go to work in dark, leave work in dark, horrible

    3. AutumnMists


      It's horrible the fact that in November and December in weekdays, I don't actually get to see my house in the light ...

    4. snowfluff


      Fly south then.

  8. A horrible start but a beautiful end. :D Hopefully the sunshine will beat the clouds as we progress through the week.

    1. AutumnMists


      One thing us Northerners don't want is mildish temperatures coupled with clouds and drizzle because that would be boring

  9. A beautiful pleasant day with sunshine and clouds although the sun just doesn't seem to provide that extra heat like it did four weeks ago

  10. It's, cold. Heating's staying off though

      Yep. Sure is a 'quiet' and rather 'lonely' time is early Autumn ... After the hype of the Summer, there's a bit of a gap until the hype of the Winter and Christmas ... A gap which also provides perhaps the most interesting weather in the whole year.

    3. Bottesford


      No peace here early autumn- once kids are back its traffic chaos again and even worse once uni goes back. Then add dark evenings by late Oct for a cocktail of commuting 'delight'...

    4. AutumnMists


      Well I suppose it also depends on where you live though with the traffic and that ... here in the Pennines it should be alright.

  11. Feels like Autumn :( Storms, wet and wind

      Yep. Coupled with 'shorter' days, Summer is slowly but surely starting to peter out, except for a hopefully drier and warmer spell next week. After that though it does look a bit grim

    3. Summer Sun

      Summer Sun

      well if WSI are right we can look forward to a warm Autumn :D

    4. Bottesford


      First half warm, second half stormy would do me!

  12. Warm spell over :( Rains falling and heatings on

    2. 95 Degrees

      95 Degrees

      24C here with a Humidex of 29C, nice, the warm spell isn't over here.

    3. AutumnMists


      I'm jealous of the Southerners getting treated to another fine Summer's day :(

    4. Milhouse


      Temperatures still in the low 20s today which is more than i was expecting. I thought the warm spell would be over by yesterday here.

  13. This warm spell doesn't look like the most ideal one by any means, especially for the North. Just overcast, showers and sunny spells all week for me in the Pennines, with any warm spell slowly disappearing after the weekend. Not good but better than nothing!

    1. Eugene


      Yeah looks like that front that was going to head southeastwards will stall over northern england

    2. Scorcher


      Great day in Manchester today, reached 23C at the airport, one of the warmest spots!

  14. Awoken by an unforecast heavy shower. This weather is getting pretty close to unbearable now

  15. Another horrible day, rain rain rain

  16. The heavy rain forecast looks like it has been delayed a couple of hours, with some heavy rain forecast late afternoon; sunny with clouds at the moment but feeling more like March

  17. Be prepared more sunshine and warmth on the way after an average weekend!

    1. Summer Sun

      Summer Sun

      I'm prepared :D

    2. Eugene


      In your dreams maybe, looking unsettled next week with LP moving in, watch out for the ground frosts at night this weekend, was chilly even last night in the countryside

  18. Where's that blue sky just gone?

  19. Has anywhere reached 30 yet?

    1. Summer Sun

      Summer Sun

      Not yet, Aviemore, Inverness, experiences the hottest day of the year at 26.9C today

    2. A Winter's Tale

      A Winter's Tale

      28.3C was unofficially recorded at Cromdale.

    3. Aaron


      That should be official today

  20. Is it me or does the BBC VHS ident scare you so much?

  21. Not a cloud in the sky until at least Sunday :)

    1. Eugene


      lol very brave forecast

    2. AutumnMists


      Hehee, there are clouds in the sky now :p

      Was just getting my hopes up.

  22. The sun is here all week and next week:D

  23. Possible signs of warmth end of May/early June appear to becoming ever so weak, sadly.

      Yeah, down to 5.2C already, and I see a little lower where you are. Been a lot of frost damage this year, neither of my Lilac's flowered (the flower heads went black), nor did the cherry tree (it's just leafed), and the Ash trees that looked like they were beginning to leaf up in April are now totally bald again. Certainly been a forsty spring this year.

    3. Evening thunder

      Evening thunder

      That's pretty interesting as I've never noticed that much frost damage here, at least not to trees like that, even in the -0.8C we got in May 2010. I may not have looked close enough though. I hope we don't get too much tonight. 2.8C now! (at 11:25)

    4. AutumnMists


      No warm spell though as I was saying (late 20's).

      More like early twenties or late teens

  24. Lovely day today, let's hope for the same tomorrow

  25. Average day .. felt very cold with no sun but rather pleasant with it shining. Showers making interruptions. Temperature fallen quickly this afternoon, with 13'C at 1pm but 8'C now at 4:30
