Got to say that the weather certainly caught forecasters out this morning.Saw the bbc 1 forecast last night at 10.35 and was expecting rain maybe 5-7am for my location and then a pleasant day.Well we had a bit of rain at 5.30am and then it was dry till about 8.15 and then it poured till about 10.45.The rain obviousily was a lot further West than they forecast last night lol!!Pretty poor forecast only 12 hours out imo.

True. They just can't seem to get a handle on anything coming up from the south. The met were equally as bad with their forecasting too for this morning.

Back to the wet muddy dog walks for me too @Badgers01 

Green everywhere with brown all but gone apart from the beginnings of the autumn turn. 

Hopefully with no real rain in the forecast we may get away with another dry couple of dog walk weeks before the autumn rains/mucky paws really begin.

EARLY SEPTEMBER WEATHER TREND

- often high pressure
- mainly dry with sunny spells
- occasional showers for far south
- warmer than average
- widespread or notable heatwave unlikely
- chilly nights with rural frost risk
- patchy overnight fog

 

Looking quite nice for the next couple of weeks. High pressure always welcome.

A quiet day, weather wise.  Some bright sunny spells with scattered cumulus clouds.  The temperature is perfect at 18 °C  and there is 52% humidity.  The visibility is very good.  There is a very light breeze and it is coming from a northerly direction.

We just had a very isolated, very light shower in Hastings (the sun was still shining unobscured!)

next hols is in 7 weeks lass.

well it is for bubs.

Perfect day for sorting out bubs new uniform, she's going to be in shirt and tie come October. Nice they still make girls wear ties when I have never worn one (only an elastic one) so have no idea how to put the basted one on yet alone teach her. So found some elastic ones. Girls don't wear ties. 

Cloudy all day i think. too busy with my head in the wardrobe.

Lucky you, being able to heat your greenhouse. Can’t do that with mine as I can’t get to the allotment every day. Are you making sauces with your chilli’s? There’s a bloke on our allotments who grows the super hot ones, he bottles them

nah I am going to dry mine and store them for the winter and next year. We have a lot of chilli lovers in the family so they will get used up :)

Bubs school just teaches equality among the races as Bedford is quite multi cultural and that each child can achieve. Thankfully this school hasn't banned skirts yet. I will be rebel mum with the elastic slightly the wrong shade of yellow tie. I'm not aware she gets taught the sexes are the same, i think social media does that one.

Anyway feels like autumn today a bit cloudy and i'm awaiting men with vans with birthday presents for bubs.

As I count down the hours to the end of 'meteorological summer' ( yes I know, but I happen to like the JJA definition ! ) I'm looking forward to adding up all the stats I've been recording from Weathercasts Herstmonceux site for summer 2018.

I'm pretty certain August will fare worse than the previous 2 months though in terms of warmth, sunshine and particularly rainfall. I'll hopefully post the figures here tomorrow for anyone interested.

Currently a pleasant 20.5c under clear blue skies in St Leonards on Sea.

Really lovely afternoon, 22.c a bit earlier, perfect for working outdoors. I've just got the candles, winter coat and blanket throws out of storage today though as it's meteorological autumn tomorrow!! 

Having said that, please can we have loads of hot sunny weather next week when I'm (finally) on my 'summer' holidays in Devon.

Lovely sitting in the garden after work, you can feel that the sun is starting to loose its strength and autumn is just around the corner. Bring it on ?

A nice day to finish Summer 2018 with. Plenty of warm sunshine and light winds. Looks like more of the same to come, perhaps warmer. Smashing ?

thought you would be happy - was certainly a pleasant afternoon. Personally ambivalent on a return to 25c + but if we do get a warm / heatwave early next week it will as ever be bang on que for back to school ..

    High pressure staying in charge this weekend but watch for some sharp southern showers

    High pressure to the north and northeast of the UK is keeping the weather mostly dry and fine at the moment, and this continues into the weekend. But lower pressure to the south will bring the risk of some showers for a time. Read the full update here
