Good spells of sunshine from the start up here, a fairly stiff south westerly breeze but it should be nice in Cambridge today. Already 19C here which is close to the predicted maximum for today.

So it is nice and warm for the time of year, granted - but what's the point if all we get is grey sky and no sun to cheer everyone up!

It's just so depressing, I'd rather have some cold/crisp days as long as we got some sunshine tbh!

Almost uninterrupted blue skies here, though breezy.

EDIT - stratus and stratocumulus now.  Not that gloomy, but rather disappointing after what we had earlier.

Who stole the sun? Was lovely until half an hour ago, now it’s dark grey and gloomy again! :girl_devil:

There was some bright sunshine earlier on in the day but disappeared by late.  It is cloudy now and there is no sign of the promised mini heatwave.

From a fantastic start to the day with plenty of sunshine, this afternoon has turned into a cloud fest. The temperature through the day reflecting the cloud cover, from a peak of 20.1C late morning, now down to 19.6C.

Monday continuing to look a treat for our Region, although maybe the stiff southerly breeze from the outer reaches of Ophelia will have the BBQ ash blowing around! But spare a thought for folk in Ireland - that's one nasty storm going to hit them.

Once the sun broke through around midday here it was a beautiful mid autumn afternoon, Tmax 18.2c.

Conditions currently are absolutely perfect for tonights Hastings Bonfire Parade and Firework display. 16.1c and dead calm.

So Ophelia is going to give us a nice summers day.

So according to winter weather predictions, it's going to be freezing cold in the NE of the USA with plenty of cold air streaming into the Atlantic and colliding with warm air further south, which will fire up the jet and ruin yet another UK winter. Thanks a lot, I blame Trump.

Stunning morning here under a cloudless sky. Currently 18.3C (midday). Not so for everyone though, with what looks like a bank of low cloud spoiling things further west in the Region.

Did anyone else have condensation covered exterior windows first thing this morning? There was quite a lot of mist and fog overnight caused by the present warm air mass and high humidity (98% at 07.00). As this lifted and cleared with the rising sun my windows suddenly fogged up. :)

Yes,  my windows were running wet first thing, thought it was because I’d left wet washing in basket to hang out this morning. Grass is still wet even now, which is a pain as I was going to give it the last cut for this year.

I had condensation last night on my kitchen windows but it has all gone now.  It has been a warm day with some sunshine.  I have looked at the local weather forecasts for South Ockendon from BBC, myweather2.com and wunderground.com weather which has 21°C (BBC), 23°C (myweather2.com) and 24°C (wunderground.com weather) and which one will get tomorrow's temperature right.

Good question KB. What indeed will be the max temp tomorrow? The amount of cloud cover we end up with will play a big part. Interesting that the BBC/Met Office have trimmed back the temp on their graphics from the 24C shown yesterday to 22C today. In contrast, tonight's Arpege is still holding steady with a forecast of 23C. But tbh, we're lucky to be discussing the top temp and not how we'll keep the roof tiles on!!

Personally i think it'll be windier than we think. Nothing like ireland or wedt uk though. Warm and breezy should cover it.

Gloomy here this morning, humid too. And what’s with the rain coming towards us, don’t remember that being forecast.

Hello Blazerblue.

Yes it is certainly not was forecast. We had a short sharp shower here at about seven o'clock which was enough to wet the ground.

It has just started to brighten up now and so hopefully we are in for a decent day.

Kind regards

Dave

Obviously the focus is out west for the next few days or so, however I’ve seen some discussion that north Kent could have winds of 80mph on Saturday?

Certainly need to see the low removed or toned down for the end of the week.. Looks nasty, while Ireland gets hit today we bask in late summer heat..

Sky looks rather Spanish plume like here. Wondering if it will go bang.

Yes indeed looks nasty for the end of the week . Looking at the Metoffice twitter I thought this post was very dismissive of them although Saturday looks the more likely day . I hope they are right and in all probability they probably are but this person asking the question might toddle off thinking nothing will happen towards next week ,

Unbelievably the temperature has already reached 22c in wales according to the latest Beeb forecast we should see 24c :)

Just like they are not forecasting heavy rain for about half of the UK this morning.

My Met Office phone app definitely did not mention rain today. Therefore the 06:45 intense shower, followed by drizzle for half an hour or so, was a disappointing surprise.  There has been sun, for a while, but cloudy again and I can't see how we could attain 22 C today - although longing to be proved wrong! 

Currently:

17C grey cloud (possibly rain producing? especially as have just hung out the washing...)

Wind: SSE 13 Gusts to 23

Humidity: 86%

Pressure: 1014
