Yes my goodness, the different shades of grey that have been on offer over the last couple of days just don’t do it for me! Plays havoc with the hair all this mizzle, thankfully  I’m not in the kind of job where being ‘well presented’ is a requirement, I’d have a P45 in my hand before the sun was anywhere near setting! Makes me want to get my Christmas lights up now just for a bit of cheer. I was up in London last Thursday evening walked from Victoria station to All souls Langham place, and the lights on display were very up lifting and beautiful, the hideous crowds round Oxford Circus ruined it a bit though!! It’s nice to have the log burner on that is nice and cheery. I’m pinning my hopes on some sunny cold weather at some point in the next two weeks..?! ?

That’s one thing that lifts the spirits in our oft dismal late Autumn-early Winter climate - Christmas lights! Love them. Will be putting up my tree, lights and decorations this week ? You’re so lucky having a log burner, lovely ?

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

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 ?

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

Indeed SB. 5 consecutive days here in St Leonards on Sea with zero sunshine and copious amounts of drizzle interspersed with heavy showers. This evening saw some of the heaviest rainfall during that time.

The only 'saving grace' is that the temperature has reached double figures for the last 4 days so at least I can turn the heating off for now. I can't be the only person who finds this type of weather depressing surely ?

Yes, it has turned milder so that’s a small compensation for the endless grey grot. You certainly are not the only person that finds this type of weather depressing. Hopefully, something brighter on the way, soon.

Depressingly low daytime light levels for the 6th consecutive day here in the Hastings area. Indoor lights on all day and a good many street lights came on around 3pm.

Add in some torrential downpours this afternoon and evening and frankly I'm sick and tired of this thoroughly dismal autumn.

What a few days it’s been, I was driving home from work and the drains just couldn’t cope which made a very wet road a lot worse. I also noted how high the river was, I have lived in the same part of the country for most of my life and that was the highest I have ever seen that river. I think like everyone now I’ve had enough of getting wet all the time. It would be nice to see the sun even for a few minutes

be  verycarefull   lot of standing water on the roads

An iffy commute for some this morning.
I have however enjoyed listening to the rain over the past few hours... when everything is so quiet.
The rainfall radar has been stuck for a while.

Where has the sun gone this November? I don't think the weather could get more miserable if it tried. Roll on summer and those long evenings. However..........if it actually snowed regularly, then I might not mind winter so much, but we keep getting served drivel, or should that be drizzle.

Blimey, has it rained in Bexhill, or what?! Since around 23:50 last night, the rain has been so persistent, only stopping every hour or so. It’s been fluctuating between >Moderate-Torrential, and it was mainly stratiform for a good portion of the night. 

Once the rain band cleared, however, we have been stuck under heavy-very heavy showers for a good few hours. 
 

In fact, as I’m writing this, it’s raining outside! Falling under >moderate on my scale.

I think the last couple of days has epitomised our changing climate...for a majority of this month we have experienced suppressed temperatures largely by day but nothing untoward but as soon as any atlantic air mass or air originating from further south shows up the temperatures eclipse what we have been experiencing on the flip side, night time temperatures the last couple of nights haven't even got into single figures here, 10.5c and 10.2c respectively. 

Unbelievably the sun has just come out...

i wonder what christmas day will be like this year down south?

Almost guaranteed for temps to be somewhere between 6c - 13c by day and without a doubt green, whether it's raining or partly sunny is another thing. Small chance of a frost hanging around in the morning making it a paler shade of green.

That's what my crystal balls says ?

Drains and rivers round here are so full. 
 

Country roads are like ponds as no where for the insane amount of water to go. 
The HP this weekend into next, is going to be a welcome relief to say the least.

I saw a strange and unusual bright light coming from the sky, it is the rare sight of the sun. In the previous post, the below photo is my rain gauge.
