glorious morning across Esher Common !! autumn is well and truly in full swing ..

With the official stats now out, here's the Met Office chart comparing Summer 2018 with other similar years. For much of our Region 2018 was the hottest, but with some variations such as Norfolk and K

I wonder if having a hot summer improves or worsens the chances of a cold winter or there more other factors that play in getting colder temperatures in winter.

Interesting outlook for end of week and weekend from Met. Heavy rain at times followed by heavy showers and sunny spells also, we may get some convective activity, be a nice change. Ground drying up again quite rapidly so its needed.

Watched a video the other day where they showed historical charts about winters that followed summers which were similar to this summer. There were wild swings from cold to mild, so no real trend was seen based on history. It seems the summer patterns themselves don’t matter too much, but I’m sure there must be something in it

The only probem is the northern hemisphere has been so abnormaly hot because of global warming artic sea ice is at an all time historic low, so getting a build up of frigid winter air could soon be a thing of the past. Time will tell.

Plus the warmer than normal waters to the south and west of these islands may give extra energy to any incoming storms.

Does the radar not cover us here in Halesworth? Been constant rain for the last two hours but radar shows nothing! Wet morning, 15c and gloomy. Glad I cut the front lawn yesterday as I was going to do it today.

Gutted! I've had no holiday this year as life has been a bit hectic/expensive, so I booked a Dorset campsite for this weekend a few days ago. But the forecast has changed since then and a warm settled spell has vanished...sob!

Don't know whether the cancel or not...weather is not looking great but not looking terrible either?

Aye, BB, an utter crapster of a day: rain/drizzle all morning and a horrible mizzly greyness ever since!

quite warm out actually.  A little too warm for jeans.

Month long panic now as bubs is doing romans at school and needs a roman outfit. for roman day. Considering the drawing on the class room looked  like a viking ship and hubs and me guessed that as the topic.

we did well there then.

It has started to rain again (but more heavily this time) and the Met Office says that the only rain there is near the coast but I live and it says that is only 10% chance of precipitation.

Been a thoroughly miserable wet/ damp day in the Thames Estuary. Rain on and off all day. Looks like a small depression  developed and remains stationary over the area ( about 70 miles in diameter ). Rain today map shows it rotating nicely.

I absolutely hate days like this. Reminds me of the descent into winter and it's the longest time to wait until summer returns.

I feel your pain Lauren. 

Although today was still pleasant with warm sunshine at times, no doubt the downhill decent into mild Atlantic muck feels upon us. 

Months of heavy rain and reduced daylight hours will please a few on here (proper weather apparently) whilst I’m trying to block that out with the thought of a snowy Jan/Feb and the start of spring in early April. 

Lets hope 2019 gives us another beautiful summer with warm/hot sunny days. 

You never know, end of September could still deliver before the Atlantic mild grey gunk moves in. 30c reached in 2011
