      Thanks Backtrack. :)

  3. We're so so close to the first UV indexes of the year. Sunday could shave moderate in the south west. 

  4. The clock on this 'winter' is ticking. 28 days left. The best seasons will soon be upon us! Warm sunshine, long days and short nights. Bye bye 'winter', you've been a pain.

      a bit yesterday, and tuesday

  13. This year has used up its quota of annoyingly rubbish NW'erlies and Northerlies. This winter to be mild & wet I suspect with winds predominantly from the south west

      Nothing here in Darlington either 16.5c currently bit higher than the 11c forecast 2 days ago!

    4. cheese

      cheese

      Sun is coming out here too, and 16C. Can go higher if the sun stays out for a while.

  17. This weather sucks. Not even the fantastic June sunshine can salvage the low temperatures and nagging wind. 13C at 1pm on a sunny day in June. What even is that? Absolutely disgraceful.

      Since I've posted this, the clouds have completely cleared, the wind has dropped and the temperature has shot up to 19.2C. The wind now feels warm in the back garden and it's lovely. No doubt when I go work in a little while though it'll feel cold once more.

    3. Eugene

      So not shockingly bad at all then

      Nothing close to 19c showing on weatheronline though for the NW.

  18. Will it even breach 20C here this May? June isn't looking great either. Starring to feel really annoyed with this RUBBISH weather. Just one week of sun & warmth, is that too much to ask? Absolutely disgusting, starting to make me feel depressed

      We've had it 'relatively' cool. But nothing like you guys. My lowest maximum this month has been 14.5c the next lowest 15.9c. Daily averages range from 11.2c to 19.3c. But I am 5th floor city centre however (but shaded sensor).

  19. Summer needs to wake up now. I'm sick of having to wear my jacket two weeks before the start of summer!!

      to be honest I'd be more worried about the summer if we were having a prolonged warm and sunny spell now- think 2008!

      Premature forecastalation ??.

  21. I still can't believe we haven't had a warm, sunny spell of weather yet. Can we even get them in this country anymore? A few days ago this high was looking fantastic, now it just looks like a cloudy, benign mess!!

      High pressure only seems to bring clear skies in winter nowadays. June 2014 was dire - the worst anticyclonic summer month I have endured. July 2014 was good but pressure was just average.

      Anytime there's been sunshine so far this year there has been a nasty cold wind accompanying it and even that's mainly just during the working week. The weekends have been atrociously dull just as they were last year.

    4. Evening thunder

      June 2014 was good here so depends on location. Most of this year so far has been winter

  22. Paul, you've ignored my PM's for about 3 years, can you please reply to the one I sent you ages ago...... ta

  23. I wonder when we're going to break 1) out of this below average temperature dross and 2) out of this trend of strictly average months

    1. Mapantz

      Mapantz

      I wondered myself until i saw a MO graphic, showing average max temps. 8.9°C is the average max.

      My own is currently at 10.9°C with the overall average for March at 6.9°C which is just above my longer term.

      However, i do agree, it does feel droll!

    2. Snowy Easterlies

      we had plenty of above average months last years, time for below average now, just a shame winter wasn't below average

  24. Could a mod please fix the grammar in the title of the thread I've just started? I've cocked it up, haha!
