That's echoed in (3) here. From TWO:  

Update 1 suggests a significantly higher than average chance of snow this Christmas in both the north and south of the UK.

The primary reasons for this are:

1) Background signals including ENSO and QBO are not likely to be big drivers of the UK's weather during early winter.

2) We are close to a solar minimum.

3) Since the Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) in February there has been an ongoing signal for high pressure blocks to have more influence on the UK's weather than normal. In the late winter and early spring northern blocking led to widespread snow as the Beast from the East made its presence felt. That was followed by one of the warmest (it could turn out to be the warmest once all of the data has been collated) summers on record in the UK due to the persistence of anticyclonic conditions. As we head into the meteorological autumn the elevated signal for high pressure still appears to be present.

Yes indeed it is. That horrible sort of drizzle that soaks you. I will be stewarding at my local football ground today and hope that it clears up by midday when us volunteers ready the ground for the 3 pm kickoff.

Looking forward too next week when the weather is on the up again.

Kind Regards

Dave

Sixty-three today and a week tomorrow, will be exactly three years since I had a brain haemorrhage/stroke. So really feel lucky to be alive still, after "dying" twice but thanks to our brilliant NHS and the love and care, from my wife,  I'm still here to tell the tale!!

Just had a walk to the shops with my wife, felt quite humid when the sun poked out, briefly.

Hope you all have a lovely day, I'm determined to. 

Regards,

Tom. ?

Happy birthday and best wishes for continued good health.

Have a very happy birthday Tom and it is wonderful that you are here on the forum.  Today in South Ockendon, it start out very cloudy and then it brighten up for a short while.  It has become dull again.  The temperature is 16  °C  but feels like 14  °C .

September is a quiet month weather wise and in here generally - over on the mod thread a few hints at the weather turning a bit wilder around the equinox ....

Pumpkins nearly ready! Lovely late afternoon yesterday, warm sunshine. Melons picked

Talk going round the allotment of a cold winter ahead...lot of people not bothering with autumn planing onions etc...? End of evening visits to allotments soon as we're losing almost 4 minutes of light per evening at the mo.
