  1. Cold and clear in the morning after an early ground frost before cloud bubbled up by the afternoon, though still remaining mostly sunny. Max Temp: 14.3C Min Temp: 3.7C Mean Wind: 15mph SE Max Gust: 22mph Sunshine: 9.1hrs Rainfall: None Currently mostly cloudy with a temp of 9.8C and a light south-easterly breeze.
  2. Last nights rain totalled 21.4mm, taking us up to 93.8mm for October (351% to the 15th!) and 203.8mm for the Autumn so far. The wettest Autumn here since 1980 was 2000, which had 296.3mm - there's certainly a possibility to beat that, considering we're only just halfway through the season.
  3. Mostly cloudy with bright spells after heavy rain yesterday evening and last night. 21.4mm fell in total, taking us up to 93.4mm for the month already. Min temp 10.4C. Currently 10.9C.
  4. We've now had 181.8mm of rain in the last 23 days (and counting, as its currently raining). The 1981-2010 average for the entire Autumn here is 179.9mm. It has been quite cool by day aswell, with a high maximum of 15.6C this month and only 3 days surpassing 15C. The models aren't showing anything much above 14C for the foreseeable either. Its quite a different October to recent years. Extremely dull too, we've had only 33 hours of sunshine in 14 days.
  5. Dull, overcast and misty all day with persistent light rain. Cold too with a max of just 12.8C and a keen easterly wind. No sunshine and 19.6mm of rain since midnight. Currently overcast but dry with a temp of 12.4C.
  6. Another 18.0mm of rain so far today meaning we've now had 154mm since 22nd September. Surprisingly the ground has taken it well due to the long dry period before, but the rivers and streams are rising now so it could do to stop!
  7. Cool and overcast for the most part with a few breaks in the last couple of hours. Extremely wet overnight with 20.2mm falling in less than three hours. Max Temp: 14.3C Min Temp: 9.3C Mean Wind: 14mph N Max Gust: 21mph Rainfall: 17.0mm Sunshine: 0.9hrs (so far) Currently mostly cloudy with bright spells and a temp of 12.5C.
  8. Another 20.2mm of rain overnight taking us to 134.4mm in the last 13 days. That's more than we had during the entire winters of 2011/12, 2014/15 and 2018/19.
  9. We put ours on for an hour for the first time yesterday after the inside temp dropped to 18C.
  10. Closing this as we're now past the sea ice minimum. Please continue in the new thread.
  11. Even here in the east it has been vile. Since the evening of the 22nd September we've had 99.2mm so far. This month is now on 107.0mm, making it the wettest here since 1993. Hard to believe the first 21 days had just 7.8mm!
  12. Blaming the younger generation is just pure ignorance as you mention. The young live in the world that the previous generations constructed, they have no choice. The other factor that is often ignored now is how much more efficient things are. The lighting in our house for example is all LED, each bulb using no more than 14w compared to the 60-100w light bulbs previous generations might have used. There's also the fact that white goods in general use a lot less now than a lot then. The younger generation might have more in the way of technology now, but how does a smartphone consuming 2 watts compare to a record player in the past for example? I would not be surprised if younger people now use much less electricity than previous generations.
  13. 11.5C and 119mm Slightly above average for both temperatures and rainfall. I was tempted to go cooler than average, but its always a risk these days!
  14. Overcast all day with light rain at times and heavier rain this afternoon. The total since midnight is now up to 37.2mm, making it the wettest day since 8th August 2017. It has been rather cool aswell with a brief max of 14.6C. Now currently 12.8C with a 25-30mph NNW wind so feeling quite chilly. September is now up to 99.2mm here (after only 7.8mm in the first 21 days), making it already the wettest since 1999.
  15. Surely you cant be serious? The weather this week has been abysmal. 84mm of rain in 8 days and not a single day with any dry, usable weather. There hasn't hardly been any sunshine either. I'm no fan of summer extending well into Autumn but this weather hasn't been of use to anyone.
