Remember it well - but probably only because it was my birthday and the weather on October 1 very rarely seems to be good. You've only got to look at the prospects for this coming Friday to get the idea...

Funny you bring up a October heat wave as just the other day I was trying to recall an

Indian summer spell (heat wave if you like) around the middle of October or slightly earlier

where temperatures were reaching the mid seventies in southern England.

I am not sure how far north the warmth extended. I may be wrong but I think this occurred

in the late seventies, having just looked at the archive synoptic charts possibly 78, if not

then sometime in the eighties.

Yes, there was such a spell during mid October 1978. 25.2C at Greenwich on the 11th

Ah, yes: when the warmest October day was in March :D

I remember it being a very warm day, usually so for October, but that's about all.

In stark contrast to October 3rd 2008.. it snowed!.. maybe Mr Data could kindly bring the synopitic charts up for that.
