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 ?

Been a lovely late autumn day here-slight frost this morning but clear blue skies but a max of only 5.7 degrees and looks like similar daytime temps till at least next Wednesday but thankfully dry with more frost on the way.

current temp 0.1 here in Locksbottom as at 10.40pm

Bubs is going to archery, so while looking at numerous weather forecasts to guide me on what to get her to wear, I turned to alexa :

Currently in Bedford, it is -3 degrees with clear skies and sun. The weather today has snow furries.

Actual weather -1 with fog, clearing later and dry.

I think it's giving me the wrong Bedford forecast ( the one from Bedford USA, which is -3 etc).

GUTTED.

Beautiful fog and frost, this morning.  It was not forecasted for Thurrock and it came as a lovely surprise.  The temperature is 4.0 Celsius and the  humidity has gone done from 80% to 75%. The barometric pressure has risen to 1019.7.

Alexa has now changed my forecast, to a village across from me, and is more on the money with -1 and fog. However it still thinks i will get snow furries. 

silly alexa.

Yes Steve a good job done you don't want mushy autumn leaves getting mixed up with the dumpings of snow you're going to get this winter ?

Lovely crisp clear day in the Surrey Hills today. Not as chilly as I was expecting it to be whilst spending three hours being shot at by Nerf gun’s in the stocks at the school Christmas fair. Beautiful sunset at Newlands Corner on the North Downs this evening.

I can only go by the reports from my nearest Weathercast station at Herstmoncuex ( 12 miles away ) but according to those reports these are the figures:

Recorded Sunshine this month: 50.94 Hours

1981-2010 average for this month: 70.4 Hours

Number of days with zero sunshine recorded this month: 12


Total rainfall for this month: 210.4 mm

1981-2010 average for this month: 101.0 mm

Days with recorded rainfall above 1.0 mm this month: 20

1981-2010 average above 1.0 mm for this month: 12

The stats seem to confirm that overall it's been a pretty awful month in this neck of the woods. The last couple of days have at least seen a bit more in the way of sunshine and less rainfall but there's now a nagging easterly wind dragging the 'feel like' temperature down.

Edited to say these are the stats for November 2019

Morning All, so first day of Winter starts of with 3c and some damp conditions here in Norfolk the odd shower coming of the coast overnight.

I do get annoyed looking at the model comments. I know it’s a hobby for lots of them I get that... but why do they always get excited looking at charts 10 days away that show snow and freezing temperatures. 

We live on a island surrounded by relatively warm seas and as we know chances of a snowy December is very rare .look at 2010 yes it happened but It was a 1 in 50 year event.

Met office and Weatherquest in Norwich have all gone for a mild winter with occasionally cold snaps which in my eyes is a typical UK winter. Those in the model forum looking for weeks of freezing temperatures need to move to Russia if that’s what you want.

So when is this dry spell supposed to get here? Heavy showers Friday afternoon, yesterday afternoon and now this morning too. The triangle of doom is definitely gloomy n wet, until the snow arrives, when it will miraculously clear up and not a flake will be seen! Really not liking weather right now, so fed up of the flooded roads, fields and constant cloudy skies. Moan over ? happy December all x

Alright, so I was woken by the sonic boom (and every dog in our apartment block barking because of it) at 4.20 this morning, but I'm sure than when I got up this morning, I saw something wintry fall from the sky.  Tiny little snowflakes, whirling around on the breeze but gone in under 3 minutes. It was beautiful...and I'm 99% certain I wasn't dreaming it!

It has been a strange day, today as It started with a cloudy sky and then it became clear for just over an hour. It has been cloudy since 2:30 pm where there was a very light shower of rain.

The temperature at 15:57 is 8.3 Celsius.
