It seems very likely that today will be the warmest October 14th on record here ( since 1977). The previous warmest was 17.4c in 1984 and the Davis on the roof mast has already reached 18.3c.

Edit; the screen max was 18.4c so the previous record exceeded by 1.0c.

Yes, same here. Due to Saharan dust carried north by Ophelia I think.

I didn't actually see the Sun earlier, but I did notice that the cloud seemed a very weird colour. It sort of had a slightly golden tinge to it, but it felt very dim at the same time. It was a bit surreal actually, and it can't be too often it's like that. Quite a windy day too, with a lot of leaves floating about and down.

Could view the red sun with the naked eye comfortably at 11am this morning.

Hateful today.

Gloomy, windless, no rain, not drizzle, not even mizzle. Just the slightest hint of moisture floating around in the air, as if the weather can't be arsed to do anything meaningful.

Jesus wept, I cut the lawn on Sunday just gone and the cuttings were bone dry in October!

Maybe, just maybe, Telford gets its first proper "stormy" autumnal weather for two years on Saturday (last year, after two weeks in Cuba where every night was never less that mid-twenties and 80% humidity, we looked forward to returning to an autumnal UK and some occasionally stormy weather, but no. Azores ridging and Scandi blocking for what seemed like five months solid put paid to that).

Well, yesterday's rant clearly gave the weather in Salop & the West Mids a good kick up the a r s e

A proper good period of rain, and a bit of a squall line passing over the office in Wolves at 16:00

Colour me half happy..........

I have been following what's happening regarding our prospects for cold, via the models of course :cold:

Quite likely they'll be plenty of frost and even fog around bonfire night....with all them bonfires on the go.... Pee soup anyone :ninja:

Temperatures dropping like the proverbial now that the sky has cleared.

I am already down to 5.4C after a max of 14C earlier on.
