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

Nice sunny morning with a blue sky today. Looks slightly warmer the next few days.

I’d say Summer 2020 has been a poor one. Cool and dull June and July. Only a couple of short heatwaves. The August heatwave was impressive but as soon as it ended it was abysmal for the rest of the month.

Coolies have had so little to moan about this summer, I dread to think what a normal or even good summer would result in..!

Ho hum. We roll on into autumn and today actually resembles August the 32nd!

Lake District Summer 2020, poor overall. Very wet, very cloudy, temps overall very average with a couple of shots of heat.

July was a shocker, abysmal month. Second half of August poor. June was mixed very wet middle and end. First half of August saved it from being one of the worse.

cant believe summer is over already only seems like last week was June 1st

I think the lockdown made summer move faster this year, if that makes sense.

We’ve had what I’d say is an incredible 5/6 months of weather here in north Kent. I think this little corner is certainly the exception. I’ve never had such a strong t shirt tan and not got out of the shorts yet. I think I’m at 6 times I’ve got the waterproofs out when walking, which is daily

It was a poor Summer overall here. Very cloudy, wet with only a handful of days with proper warmth/heat. The rest of it was pretty mediocre. Had one of the coolest July's for years as well.

Ok, well it did go quick. I often find once we get past the end of May, September just seems to come round quickly, and you haven’t had time to enjoy the summer fully. 
 

Lockdown made it move faster for us,  because people were waiting for restrictions to be gradually lifted, some of which are still place.

Yes July 2020 was pretty awful. Probably the worst in the London area since 2012, and going even further back, one that could match 1988 for miserable weather.

Thank goodness... I thought I was the only one who thinks so!:oldgood:

And now we must give way to all those who think every winter should be like 1963!:oldlaugh:

The spring was a lovely mix of chilly sunshine days mix with warm in the sun, chilly in the shade days, and a warm sunny May. Early June was promising, but it kind of went downhill during the main summer.

There were plenty of days I used the bike, but I just wish it was a sunnier summer overall. 
 

I guess we will have to wait another few years before another 2018 type summer.

Indeed, no hiding the below par sunshine. July and August were almost identical in that respect here, but August much wetter (all from the 13th onwards).

Overall, a disappointing summer, although I'd be thoroughly depressed if we'd had a poor spring and no hot spell in August. The spring was a bonus! Now, most of my tan has also gone, starting its steady slide in July and never quite recovering.

Agree the summer was made far more tolerable on the back of the excellent period between mid March and end of May, had we experienced a cool unsettled Spring then we definitely would be feeling shortchanged this year.

Probably as i was really looking forward to summer after the long cold winter...summer has just flown by even the end of April when the snow finally disappeared seems like no time at all ago

Very pleasant afternoon in Wolverhampton.  Making the most of extended Bank Holiday with a couple of days leave. Tour about a few pubs and taking in the T20 cricket England game with a few beers. Nice day. Nice evening. Something about late summer/early Autumn as the evenings draw in.

Recorded my highest temperature in 4 years this summer but apart from that it was hardly a great summer here although I wouldn't say it was particularly bad either. July wasn't great but June and August at least had some decent summery weather at times, even if it wasn't particularly long lasting. I did think at one point August would end up being the wettest month of the year so far with those few days when a lot of rain fell but in the end it fell short of that.
