    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

    Lovely last day of summer here, mostly blue skies, light winds and it surprisingly reached 21c. Felt warm in the sun.

    In my opinion, I would say that this has been a so so summer. The reason why I say this is because of how boring July was. June wasn't too bad but August was by far my favourite summer month this year due to how erratic it has been. Blazing hot temperatures followed by thunderstorms, a couple of named storms and then a cooler period towards the end. I particularly enjoyed the thunderstorms. 😀

    June - 6/10
    July - 3/10
    August - 10/10

    Summer 2020 overall - 6/10

    Yes the stormy week in the second week of August was quite notable. I think I heard thunder and saw lightning on at least 3 or 4 days in London. And although I didn’t catch an overhead storm, I saw lightning and heard storms on 3 separate evenings. The Sunday August 16th was the most notable. 
     

    Since then, it felt like autumn started to take a hold, although gradually. It wasn’t until this bank holiday weekend, where the temps have really started to feel cold for August. 

    Oh well, farewell to summer 2020. Some nice days were had, but too much dull weather spoiled it for me. The early August hot spell was lovely, even though nights were uncomfortable, the late June hot snap, and the long warmish sunny May. 
     

    Now, it’s all downhill as we move into September and the countdown to winter 2020/21 starts.

    Fair enough, it does get boring though when people just whine about the transitory heat without doing anything about it (on the other hand, it seems like a fair few posters have sensibly sorted out some sort of air cooling system).

    Nice end to Summer 2020, just like it started with a 2-3 days of sunny dry weather, albeit very cool nights, pity the rest of the summer in the main was below standard, for long periods very below standard, bar the two spells in late June - very short, and more lengthy spell earlier in August.

    Hehe, true. At least he has air conditioning, unlike many of the other regular whingers!

    Reasonable last day of summer here, some sunny spells but a heavy shower arrived this evening and it feels quite chilly now. Have a strong gut feeling that this autumn and some of the winter will be very chilly indeed.

    I think Eastern Europe will get a very cold winter, after the mild one of last year. The snow will be back with a vengeance.

    Think the UK will join in on that cold, too. We didn’t have a winter here, very little happened weather-wise, it was so weird.

    Rubbish summer. I look forward to some nice warmth every year and most times it is just boring grey cold windy puke off the Atlantic. And now it's just another 8 months of the same. Be it 4 or 5 degrees cooler.Ribbish.

    I take it it's low sunshine levels that are the main factor here? Although it has been a poor summer, I certainly won't remember it as being as poor as 2007, 2008 or 2012.

    At least this year we've had some memorable hot spells. I also reckon it has been considerably better in parts of the south than it has in the Manchester area.

    Yes and frequent rain days and this had led to it probably being the 5th wettest summer, regionally, very close to overtaking summer 2007 rainfall total. Summer 2007 going down the pan didn't really start until near mid June. The first two weeks of June were warm, very dry and about average sunshine and August wasn't as bad.

    I remember the early June spell in 2007, but I recall hardly any very warm/hot days after that. 

    At least this year we've reached 30C on more than one occasion- I can't imagine that happened in many of those other years that have a similar summer index.

    There were a couple of days earlier in August that were the hottest feeling days I've ever felt in the Manchester area with the heat and humidity.

    Absolutely dismal here. I find myself wondering where June and July went as every day was just grey, cloudy, monotonous rain. July especially was dire with only the 31st being above 21c.

    390mm of rain vs 327hrs of sunshine means my tomatoes, peppers and corn haven't done particularly well at ripening 🥺

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
