September is rivalling July here in West Wales! 


Bone dry, very sunny and warm, mean maximum at 20.8c has not happened this far into the month for some while.


Ground is baked hard, vegetation on hill sides is browning, streams are running very low.


My estimated sunshine total running at 130 hours (mean for whole Sept 125 hours) so we are sunnier than any of the official weather sites.

Lovely warm and sunny afternoon here as it was yesterday too, though more especially in the morning. Warm and pleasant tonight too. How it should be all the time. :)

 

A rumble or two on Friday perhaps? Has a bit of a mid July look to this one though not as severe imo. Certainly felt more 90s esque this year with much better chances for us westerners.

A very mild and humid night with thick fog and occasional light drizzle, and the same so far today.

The surface of the ground is still dry but everything else is dripping with moisture.

An excellent morning for observing cobwebs.

Funnily enough, the greyest morning here in some days but equally humid. Hoping for some cloud clearance to allow the sun to get to work. Looks like some good activity down south.

Warmest night of the month in contrast to the running mean minima of 7.2c last night did not drop below 14.3c.

Shaping up to be the warmest day of the month too, currently 21.2c in hazy sunshine, with the 23.5c (3rd) to beat, anything above 23c is very warm by this stage in the month when the mean is just 18c!

Wonder if we will catch a thundery shower later plenty of Ac in the skies this morning. Showers currently crossing Pembrokeshire look like they could turn that way. Still no measurable rain this month and with a fairly dry outlook it could end up one of the driest on record (11mm in Sept 1986) unless we catch a storm in  the next day or 2.

 

Anyway off to the beach :)

Remarkable isn't it? It feels almost hot outside due to the humidity.

It's just tipped over 22°C here, i'm hoping to make it to 25°C later, love these statistics. :)

A surge in warmth over the past hour with stronger sunshine making it the warmest day of this month, high so far 23.6c.

Recently had some mid level cloud which dropped the temp back although the sun is back out now meaning the temp is back at 21.7c, however the nice gap that was coming on satellite images is suddenly filling in with a lot more cloud. Unless it gives some heavy showers/storms it would be nice for it do disperse a bit. 

Was wondering if we could scrape past my short term (2008-2014) record of 24.7c seen last September but probably a slim chance.

 

Yesterday saw 24.4c though, not bad at all.

 

Could make out distant flashes from a thunderstorm over south Devon about 1:30-2am last night, and even hear what I think were faint rumbles even though it was over 30 miles away. Not the first time I've heard thunder from that distance (and further once) from over the sea though.

Would love the storm shield here to break tomorrow. Even an invincible thunderstorm would be better than nothing...

Fairly sunny at the moment, though was cloudier earlier. It feels fairly warm with a temperature of 21*C combined with a slight North-Easterly breeze. I'm hoping it will remain bright. Showers and storms are welcome to pay a visit, though (even if I have to wait until tomorrow for them to come - but even then, the storm shield may just become too powerful).

Nice and sunny now and very warm at 24c :D

However I don't think thunderstorms will reach the Midlands anymore tomorrow. A few scattered ones for the south like today perhaps but nothing severe or organised IMO.

If only that Low Pressure system to the South-West could have just been a little bit further North. Maybe the odd thundery surprise could still arise tomorrow for some Midland areas, otherwise I think it would be wise if I didn't fill my hopes up as it will likely just lead to a disappointment.

I feel the same. Whether to stay up and radar watch or go to sleep and get woken up?
