Row brewing on mad thread as to whether its going to be 25c or 26c.

Be careful in there if anyone decides to venture in.

Who cares lol, it will be warm and sunny.

It’s looking a great little summery spell for our region by coast less so due to chilly SSTs, Impressive warmth for mid April to come. There’s no pleasing some. 

What do you mean, even here the weather is perfect. To be honest I need that breeze.

Don't know about the barbecue, as we were forecast sun today - but the sky looks dark and rainy to me.

But what do I know,  the MetO says it's sunny - I just look at what's there to see and tend to disagree :nea:

Will this be a year with no proper summer weather?

It is sunny and warm here at the minute. Grab hold of that cloud and don't let it move east please. Thanks in advance.

Lovely sunshine here today. Was thinking about going for a drive to the coast on Thursday but looks cool at the seaside with a brisk east wind so might go up the Serpentine instead.:unsure2:

I did hear a noise this morning, quite early, sounded like thunder or a plane doing one of the super sonic things, a gun or a car farting. Weird it was.

Hi Dave , How is your  the allotment? , plenty of time hopefully for it to dry out now , I must admit when I mowed the lawn yesterday it was rather wet underfoot but is looking much better for it today , I have neglected it these past few months it aim to get it back in order , I invested in a pressure washer for the patio as it’s grown mould and our fence needs replacing in places after the winter , I need to sort it in 2 months as the in laws are coming to stay for 6 weeks from Australia along with my wife’s brother , oh the joy . Better day today a sign of things to come .

Kind Regards 

Mark

Hello Mark,

Thanks for your reply. Yesterday morning I was finally able to mow my lawn at the back of my house, although it the grass was still quite wet. In the afternoon I visited my allotment which is the other side of town. It was much drier than I thought it would be and I was able to walk on it without damaging the texture. My plot is on a slope at the top of the incline and other plots further down the slope looked much wetter.

I pulled up my old Brussels Sprout plants and put the leaves into my three compost bins. The final one I opened revealed a pleasant surprise. In the top was a beautiful golden brown slow-worm about 2 foot long.

Today is certainly a good one for drying out the soil with the combination of wind and sun. 

My wife and I are going away from tomorrow lunchtime until Friday to stay in Witney, Oxfordshire for a complete break as we feel we need it after the trials and tribulations we have had recently with our and our son's various health issues. I am just about to go to Broomfield District Hospital for a bran scan and I hope nothing untoward is discovered. Hopefully they will be able to locate a brain!

Good luck with the visitors. If it gets too much we do a half decent B & B at decent rates.:yahoo:

Kind Regards

Dave

You’re subject to that onshore wind don’t doubt weather will be good, just not as warm and unpleasant perhaps as inland. Today has been warmer than GFS had it, 21C in Weybourne while GFS had a high of 14C bit strange really there is an offshore wind exceptional warmth on north Norfolk coast for April!

ITV weather just said 25c or 26c for London on Thursday. Well I think we could hit 27c on Thursday afternoon, went shopping today and got my sausages for the BBQ and a couple of bottles of Pecorino terre di Chieti from Morrisons.:D

according to the mod lot, after this warmish spell, things become unsettled with the jet straight over the UK, I won't give up on snow until the first of July:oops:

After a nightmare journey to an 8am hospital appointment in Sidcup where the last 1 mile took exactly 1 hour to complete, it was a massive relief to finally get back to the warm afternoon sunshine here in Hasting/St Leonards-on-Sea.

Almost 7.5 hours of sunshine and a max of 17.9c recorded locally B)

A properly warm day 19C summer-like, it did feel warmer I regretted wearing a jacket not needed. No 20C day yet definitely will be obtained tomorrow, behind the norm for here but at last.

Lovely day today after a cloudy start. Temps max 15 tempered by the wind. Really looking forward to the next few days but not so much from midweek next week!
