Right autumn 2000 was the wettest on record,following winter wasn`t that wet at all.

Autumn 2019 the new wettest on record,this winter is turning out to be extremely wet also,its effecting most outdoor work.

I thought 2000 was still top. Sep-Nov was indeed very wet nationally but not on the level of 2000.

Morning all Yesterday was one of my favourite Meteorological Winter days of all time - no snowfall but -4c to start the day with a lovely sunrise, frost stayed on the ground at sea level all day,

One of the cold persuasion waiting for snow

You could apply that to gale lovers, why would you want a potentially destructive storm causing death, damage, disruption? You could apply that to thunderstorm lovers, why would you want a severe

It's been an utterly depressing winter here, coming hard on the heels of an utterly depressing autumn. Rain, rain, rain, rain, gales, rain, rain, gales and rain. And spam. I can't remember a single stretch of more than a few days at a time of settled weather, regardless of temperature. Naturally the Kidderminster railway station rebuilding is months behind schedule and counting, so I've had to stand out in the rain again and again and again while waiting for trains, taxis etc.

Personally I don't want storms this summer either. I've been soaked to the skin more times than I can count since October, and I need a LONG break from that. I just want it to be dry. Quite frankly if spring and summer consist of an endless run of cloudy days with average temps, I'd bite your arm off for that right now. Just someone make the rain go away. Please.

I really hope for some long dry spells of sunny weather, but it doesn’t have to be hot. Just 23c-27c will suit me just fine, with a couple of thunderstorms thrown in.

Have a feeling this coming summer will be the best one for storms.

It is after all the less hot periods that tend to last longer (like July last year), rather than the plumes that see the sudden spike in temperature quickly followed by the Atlantic. I'd be quite happy with the same. Most important for me is the sunshine! Especially April-August. A sunny September/October would also be nice and a bit of a bonus.

As I've just agreed to work three days per week on a farm, sunshine+rain is what I'm hoping for; temps anywhere from 20 to 35C will do me fine too. Last summer was utterly superb!:oldgood:

It overtook it here 19 years later and with such a wet winter to follow its got to be a record wet last 6 months nationally.

Are you talking locally because autumn 2000 is the wettest on record for England and Wales by a margin

And winter 2000-01 was a wet winter and so was the following March and April. The rainfall figures for that period are staggering, for England and Wales September 2000-April 2001 about 914mm. That's a 8 month period.

Yes the field's around my house are just terrible. A muddy mess. My boots sink into the ground as it's that sodden. Speaking of 2000 if only we got a decent cold spell like Dec 2000. Feb 2001 wasn't too bad either. At least that Winter brought some proper snow & cold at times despite it being thrown in with the fabled 1997-2008 Winters. This Winter however has just been a failure compared to that.

I would take Autumn 2019 every year! Cold (below average for the UK as a whole -0.3C below the 1981-2010 average) above average sunshine (IMBY) and below average rainfall! (IMBY)

Maybe wettest on record locally for some people?

It was nice to see a below average season - who knows when the next one will come along! ? (Hopefully Winter 2020/2021!)

Well 11 days left to see a single flake of snow,or it’s going to go down as a complete snowless winter here

When you look at the potential in November yet this winter has been one absolute turd.

We had this chart at end of November.This screamed potential for the winter at the time.Unbelivable how awful it turned out in the end.

It all looked favourable in late November but it never materialised, and in the first few days of December the pattern just collapsed and has stayed that way all winter.

I wonder how many would swap this February with last February?

 

If it’s going to be very mild, may as well just be warm and sunny in my opinion, I dislike mild in winter but that spell was actually lovely

Literally the worst 3 months of weather ever.  Wet, wet wet, dull dull dull, horrible horrible horrible.  And all those poor people flooded out of their homes, absolutely terrible.

The best part of this 'extended autumn' and incessant drizzle rain in nuisance / meteorologically uninteresting amounts is when it all ends... ?

Fed up with missed bike rides or having to ride getting blown around and soaked (plus undue wear on bike parts - more bottom bracket failures this season than other vile winters like 2014/15 and 2017/18), working in the pseudo-cold wet nasty conditions, aching from the damp and now on my 4th cold in 4 months. Good riddance to this vile winter if it can't yield any 'interesting' events here in Guildford. Nice if we could actually get some of the winter thunderstorms / hail everyone else seems to be having nearby instead of just wind and drizzle rain all the time. Hope March will be warm and drier, don't want a 'cold' March which will probably be even more of the current dross at lower temperatures and the misery going into its sixth month - and still no snow.

Off on a road trip around the North Coast 500 in NW Scotland next week. Desperately hoping I can muster a few snowflakes on the mountain roads up there. 

I think that you may well get lucky.
