    At least it’s dry and usable. Warming up here now, too. Could be much worse, for sure. I’d love the sunny skies to return though, for a few more weeks. No one (sane) ever said “I get sick of sunshine” in the UK! California, it ain’t.

    It's dry, I'll give you that lol. Minimum expectation for August I guess. Blowing a hooly though.

    Dry, cloudy and usable is what I associate with the rest of the year.

    Oh and for what it's worth, this will be added to the guidelines shortly..  

    Feels so Autumnal today, loving the change from June and July.

    The sad thing is many people don't appreciate that people really struggle in this, from young babies to elderly to asthmatic. Meanwhile they're sitting there going yay it could be 40oC. I'm same as yo

    Only reached 18 yesterday in West Somerset/Devon due to cloud and flag. It didn’t rain which was great and views were tremendous- but I’d like a bit of heat back for my holiday. I picked the wrong time to take off.

    each to their own i guess, but i prefer the new fresh scents of spring, or the sweet scents of summer blooms to that of dying, decaying, musty vegetation..

    Its more the overall feel as well as the smells,the first autumn bonfires,the rustling of the fallen leaves,the quietness brought on by a dense fog,opening the front door to a crisp cold morning.. Each to their own i agree,but for me the scents of spring and summer just mean hay fever,hence my dislike.

    Don’t antihistamines work for you? I do like all the things you’ve mentioned, not until at least October, though.

    September for me tends to start in early August, much like it's done again this year!

    Warm and sunny now in London after some stubborn cloud this morning. Currently 24c. Should hit 25c quite easily today, possibly higher.

    Oh no, must be horrible for you. Bad hay fever isn’t fun. I reckon September will be wet. Hopefully, October will be more settled and sunny, with some fog and frost.

    today is pretty dreadful really.... high humidity and cloud. i find humidity is a larger problem in autumn, or late summer onwards if youre going to be pedantic!

    ive just taken down my pool, (yep given up on any more lengthy hot spells) washed it and packed it away... sweating like hell!  now i dont mind sweating if its sunny! but this dull muggy muck is simply unpleasant.

    for me now, if we cant have heat,. let it be cool and fresh... non of this middling muck.

    Come back from Arizona to find things a little greener and so much more comfortable compared to when I left. My flat is below 25c for the first time since god knows when, happy days.

    Too much cloud in this part of London today but warm and dry enough to be a very usable day.

    Though I can't stand Autumn, myself (everything smells of death and decay) I'm looking forward to a monster crop of field mushrooms...:D

    Had plenty of sunshine this afternoon with some clouds bubbling up. Warm at 25c. Makes a nice change from the last 5 days.

    Will you be making a special mushroom tea? ? We collect cep mushrooms but I’m wondering if there’ll be many this year, as it has been very dry.

    No sign of any mushrooms yet too dry just underneath the turf,grass will definitely short enough this year though,need much more rain yet.

    Sigh....default British skies have returned. How I’ve missed the gloom (not). I suppose grey is very on trend now, so not all bad.

    Another warm and quite humid day. Variable amounts of cloud and sunshine. A bit too much cloud for my liking but at least it’s been dry and warm, 25c.
