Isn’t it time to say goodbye to this thread? Summer left us nearly a week ago.....time to talk autumn people!

to me it's still summer, just the Atlantic more active now, but can still get 30 degrees in right setup

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

Yes but we’re on a weather forum, so should follow the meteorological definitions really! 😃

Although the weather isn’t too bad this weekend, autumn is starting to take hold. It definitely feels less summery now, when waking up at 5am and coming home from work just before 8. The darkness becoming more noticeable.

I think that, within reason, we should each just use whatever definition best suits the point being made? Stuff meteorological and astronomical protocols?🤔

And, before anyone jumps on me, for being a scientific philistine, even I would blanche, were someone to claim that a warm start to December was actually a continuation of summer!:oldlaugh:

Although it’s been a cool weekend, because of how cool the summer has been it doesn’t feel any different to me other than the daylight hours. People saying it feels more autumnal now, it was like this in July 😂

Point taken,  but with the longer days, July still felt like a summer month. Even when it was poor, evenings were still light until 9pm, on the poorest of days.

Can't say we have had a really warm summery weekend since June started. I make it 14 weekends now. Possibly the only warm one was about mid June. But even that was thundery. The early August one was characterised by a windy NE wind on the Saturday which took the edge off the temp. And the Sunday was cold until about 4pm due to cloud off the North sea. I am resigned to looking forward to next May already. A long long long way off.

Aye, this was bad sea mist day, cleared around 4pm

We very very nearly got 30 degrees in October a few years ago! 😉

Same here. Roll on next April and spring/ summer of 2021.

A few years ago it was 34c in the middle of September. Still got a few weeks of warm weather potential still left. As you say, was high 20s in early October a few years back too.

Today's nothing like the forecast. Just 48 hours ago the forecast was sunny intervals and 19 degrees, reality gloomy overcast and 15. Forecasting really does seem to be going down the pan these days. I can't remember it ever being as bad as the last few years I've been recording the weather.

Which app are you using? I use the bbc one and it was good and very accurate until Meteogroup took over from the Met Office and now I’ve noticed the forecast seems to be a bit more vague and generalised (for example, forecasting light rain when it’s heavy or sunny intervals when it’s unbroken sunshine).

19c is mild, but not warm and certainly not warm enough for shorts. I stopped wearing shorts once it dropped below 23c.

I’m sorry, but are you the weather police or something? You always seem to chime in whenever someone else mentions wearing shorts/t-shirt at a particular temperature. Do you go around telling people off if you see someone wearing shorts and it’s below 23°C?
 

Maybe you’re just jealous because you don’t feel comfortable wearing shorts at 19°C, but others (well I would say most people actually) would feel comfortable with it, esspecially if it’s sunny. Some people just get hot really easily or rarely feel cold (Markyo a good example!) I’d love to be one of those people who can feel comfortable wearing shorts on a frosty winters day, but I don’t go around criticising them, I just let them get on with it.
 

If they’re comfortable with it then why does it matter?

Astronomically summer doesn’t end until September 21st! The weather we’re getting at the moment is much more summery than most of the actual meteroligcal “summer” anyway lol, in fact as soon as we got into June it went unseasonably cold.

We never really had a summer lol (well, unless you count the few days in the middle/end of June, the very hot day at the end of July and the short heatwave in the first half of August).

Is there no thread for "summer 2020 how was it for you?"

Well just to sum this summer up in my opinion I really would like to place it into the bin of foul summers and look forward to the next one , but theres something about this years that really makes it one to remember. The Mid June thunderstorms and late June heatwave, The cold days in July i will want to forget but then comes a flirt with a continental heatwave on the extreme scale and yet another shoot at the temp record. and the most intense storms Ive witnessed over my head for about 6 hours. 

In my neck of the woods we very rarely hit 30C during heatwaves yet it happened in all three summer months and its not this year it happened last year too. Our crazy climate is forever changing at crazy speed. Definately a crazy Summer and one that will pop up in conversations in the future for good and bad reasons. 

This summer is one of the worst I’ve ever experienced due to the severe lack of sunshine and warmth. It was also the fourth wettest summer in the north-west of England which I was surprised about as yes it’s been wet but I wouldn’t have thought excessively so. It’s been the large number of cloudy, damp and sub 20°C days which has bothered me more than the rain. Just a few very warm/hot days chucked in here and there.

 

I would have much preferred a dry, sunny, high pressure dominated summer with 20-23°C temps, that is my idea of a perfect summer. Pleasantly warm and sunny but not excessively hot. Like the weather we’re having at the moment.
