Dunstable got a good snow cover but melted in the afternoon. Hills around the area did ok. I drove to the highest point in the Chiltrens to have my snow fix. Some photos from Wendover Wood this mornin

Shower cloud lit up nicely by the low sun earlier this evening north of Heathrow where I work.

Nice bit of snow here this morning, so that means it won’t go down as one of the worst winters I can remember but only by the skin of its teeth . Photos below ?

This morning it felt quite autumnal. And it got me thinking about the things I love when the season turns to autumn. 

I mentioned this in another thread. In Canada I loved September living in the Rockies. It’d start off warm and sunny (and the tourists would have gone). The leaves would then change to yellow and red as September progressed and there would start to be a chill in the air. 

The first snows would appear on top of the mountains and then every few days snow would come further down the mountains until one morning (usually early October) the first snows of the season would fall in the town. 

Here in the UK I love the foggy mornings and cooler evenings, smells of fireplaces and wrapping up warm. Hoping that the first snows of the season would arrive at all lol.

Are there any smells, sights, feelings that others here have that mean that autumn has arrived for them? 

The crispness of the air, scents redolent of blackberries, mushrooms, bonfires. Walking through woods blazing with reds, oranges, yellows, kicking through the fallen rustling leaves.  Watching the late afternoon mist forming in lower hollows and creeping up through the fields, until the horses visible only from their chests up become mythical fairytale creatures. Stars bright in the clear skies and finally, indoors to sit before the wood burner with my dog, dreaming into the flames.

Where the heck has the sun gone? Three days of clag and high humidity. Looks like another fail for any storms here today again. Very disappointing end to the heatwave so far.

Isn’t it always the way? Crap winters, no storms. The promise rarely delivers

Sounds perfect (and a description fit for a novel) - love it. 

For the heat lovers out there. If you’re missing it already here’s real heat...38oC at 4am with a forecast high of 52oC 😳🥵

Hopefully fresher than the 90% - 100% humidity Arome is suggesting for some this evening Seaside!

NMM generally supportive of the Arome forecast for the heavy stuff later, although not such a clearly defined band of precip and the east coast missing out. This from 13.00 through to 22.00:

Yes they have been forming south and north and west of where I am here.
Nothing like the Shoeburyness rain shield.

I bet that clump of heavy rain heading for the south coast leaves a narrow gap of drizzle just big enough for here...

You mean like this? Still stormless here despite 6 days of plus 30c and awful humidity.

Lots of convection about 10 miles north of here yesterday and today, and now this...I bet the drizzly part passes over and links up with the towers going up over Ashford to turn into some amazing storm..

Hopeful that many of us will get storms soon.
