    After the monotonous Spring which dragged on and on, it's nice to have some actual weather for once. We need more of a variety in our weather, and less blockings.

    No thanks. I don’t really like these cool damp periods in summer. This type of weather can stay in the late September to late March bracket.

    After last autumn and winter and the early part of spring, being either dull or damp and wet, a very long period of sunny clear weather is what we needed. I hope it comes back soon.

    OK @damianslaw you've tempted me into it.  Mike's forecast for summer 2020: In my view, the building blocks are already built now given the exceptional spring we have had this year in the UK

    Beautiful noctilucent clouds this evening here in Prague 

    This seems to be a facet of our changing climate - in the 1970s and 1980s, it took exceptional synoptics like those of late June 1976 to get temperatures approaching the mid-30s Celsius, and most heat

    Hardly... what dragged on and on was the rain that plagued September-March. Anyway, still waiting for this ‘actual weather’ whatever that means. Just dull, boring and chilly for the fourth day running now.

    Warmth and sunshine is a much better and more interesting holding pattern suited to the time of year.

    I agree. The late March to very early June sunny spell 2020, was something I enjoyed and never tired of.

    This current dull weather is already making me feel fed up and depressed. It’s cold, dull, damp and boring. How can people enjoy this weather for long periods? We get this type of weather in our winters.

    I said this the other day. We get plenty of this weather from late September til April/May most years. Just 3/4 months of weather without the heating on or a jumper/coat please! I’m fed up of this already too. It’s just miserable, can’t enjoy the outdoors. I can take a bit of rain, but 10c below average is too much.

    I just saw some lighting and heard thunder over west London. But, had to turn the heating on.

    13c is cold enough for out it back on.

    Just had 30 mins of heavy/torential rain here (is the drought over yet?) and the temp has dropped.

    Feels about 8°C out there now. So depressing. ?

    Totally agree,last few days have provided a far greater range of weather events than the last 2 months combined. Take today,a bit of everything,sun,warmth,rain,wind,clear skies moving to fantastic cloud formations. Honestly can't fault it. Wouldn't want it all summer but such a change is very very welcome. To have "actual weather" is a real change.

    Maybe if you're sat inside all day... but don't you want to be able to go out and do things? Sit in the park with some pals? Have people over for a barbecue? All inifnitely more pleasant in sunny warm weather.

    I love how all the heat lovers are complaining of a few days of below average temps after being spoiled with weeks on end of warmth and sunshine. We are only at the very beginning of summer, so there is plenty of time yet for the warm and sunny conditions to come back. Still, each to our own. ?

    Lets a have a little perspective here.. We just had basically 2 months of dry weather. The weather pattern was gonna break eventually.Its only the first week of June. even if we get a first half of June being poor. we still have second half of June. July/August and September to go for fine weather.. I know you cant class September a summer month. But last year was lovely and 2016 was a good September as well. So we do get fine weather in that month. Still 10/11 weeks to go. :).

    I think some of these folk are people who don’t like the outdoors.

    Yeah, September 2019 was by far the best month for dry sunny warmth, without the humidity.

    We've struck lucky today it seems, the heavy rain overnight cleared early hours in time to leave a mostly dry and very fine day. This afternoon has delivered alot of sunshine and a nice evening ahead. Indeed its notable how most of our rain these past three months has come in the night, optimum time when you want it in summer, less evaporation and cooler temps, does the gardens good.

    This current weather is fine as long as it's not setting the general theme for summer, which I think is very unlikely!  As others have said, we have been very fortunate to have such dry and sunny weather for the last couple of months.  Ok, we have not been able to make proper use of it for obvious reasons, but it would have been much worse if we'd had two months of consistent dull and wet weather while being in lockdown!  June 1995 was cool until the final 10 days and that summer will long be remembered a classic.

    That’s fine.

    A bit below average in June is still mid to high teens (15-18c is 3-6c below the average June high here of 21c) which is tolerable and more than pleasant enough. 9-10c of the last couple of days is just ghastly!

    I reckon this was colder than anything in June of 1980, and that was a bad June.

    To be honest i find this weather far more usable than hot sunny conditions. The lack of sweating makes garden jobs etc far more enjoyable. I don't sit in the sun,never have,never will. Understand though you do though June is looking not hopeful i'm afraid, July may bring something more to your liking.

    I enjoy doing all of those things as much as anyone. But I equally enjoy relaxing indoors whilst listening to the soothing sound of raindrops pattering onto the roof accompanied by that fresh earthy smell whilst knowing that all the plants are getting a good feed at the same time.

    I see weather as being like food. A little bit of everything in moderation is perfect.

    A bit of an exaggeration there.Yes we have had some great weather but here in the pennines anyway even though it has been nice and sunny we have had a lot of cool and even frosty weather and northerly flows certainly for April and a little in early May.Only the last 3 weeks have been really as you describe!
