    Hot off the press... Long Range Autumn Forecast Written by @Thundery wintry showers

    My favourite type of autumn day, clear skies, some early mist   

    Above average temperature?  Year of extended summer/no autumn? Are some on Netweather on drugs? The whole UK was cold in September. So far most of England's October has been warm but Scotland's and th

    Yes, something is afoot across the N hemisphere it seems.

    I was looking at the model output the other day showing a cold shot pouring right down from the Arctic, through Canada and into the States...thought to myself 'something is afoot here'.

    Yep the PV is being smashed up and migrated over to Canada whilst the Arctic is about to experience 'heatwave' conditions. To be honest for a UK perspective a PV  developing over Canada is surely not a good thing as the cold filters into the Atlantic and fires up the jet.

    Sea ice has jumped in the last couple of weeks across northern Canada and is above average for the date for the first time in a decade. The last time it was this icy for the time of year was 2004 and, before, that 1996.

     

    This year:

    Canada is certainly having an interesting autumn!

    The air is extremely dry today for Autumn, just 33% humidity at the moment.

    With the low sun angle, max temperature of 22.6C and low humidity it feels more like a very warm day in mid-spring than almost October.

    Just 24% humidity here at the moment with a temperature of 23.3*C. Feels warm out in that sun!  A rocking good day for Autumn. ☀️ 

    Wouldn’t be too out of place in May.

    Keep us updated please over the course of the next 8 months and see what you end up with in total, I would suggest metres of snow overall.

    I thought that too, even pretty windy. It reminded me of March 12. 

    Be even better with the cooler airmass tomorrow. 

    How low were the humidity values in Oct 16.

    It didn't drop lower than 57% here all month in October 2016.

    The low here today was 32%. Only seven days this century have seen lower, three of which coincidentally were also in September (back in 2003).

    On an Autumn note/winter i personally consider the -AO bout to be a great thing. Very negative Octobers typically produce very negative AO winter months albeit we don't win out here in the UK. 

    Looking at stonking -AO values for the time of year.

    That's the theory the OPI worked on and it seemed to correlate well in the 70s and 80s, very low OPI values were a good predictor of -AO winters, however positive values almost ruled out the very good cold blocked winters.

    How close are we to this September being the sunniest on record?  Does anyone have a link to the sunshine record for September in the UK, and if Sept 2018 if anywhere near beating it?

    They have not released (provisional) stats yet for September. You can view the sunniest Septembers on record (back to 1929) for different regions of the UK here: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/climate/uk/summaries/datasets

    Here's a table I did of Heathrow, UK and England's top 10 sunniest Septembers.

    Provisionally, September 2018 recorded 115% of the average sunshine for England with 158.2 hours of sunshine so does not fall into the top 10 as shown above. @BlueSkies_do_I_see
