Welcome old friend Autumn, may your stay be full of misty cool fresh mornings filled with that marvellous light that is the hallmark of such a fantastic season. Can't wait for that first front door opening and feeling that gloriously invigorating clean air..perfection.

I wouldn't mind this - but chances are it'll be wet and windy most of the time.

Today I spent a lot of time studying IOD. I was working out the relationship between IOD, ENSO and MJO.  There is a connnection between IOD and ENSO, mostly during strong events. During weak La Nina I

I'd hate to be a thermostat, in a house shared by @markyo and @Azazel!

I take it from reading some of the comments on here that I’m not allowed to look forward to, or comment about the signs of autumn in the autumn thread??  I could understand if the post I made this

Wow it’s cold this morning in East Sussex coast I’m certainly not going by apps with min not below 10C. At home in Rotherhithe it fell to 7.3C this is notable for very start of September, it wasn’t expected to be colder than yesterday. Heathrow fell to 6.6C it may be coldest low for the date scanning through but can’t confirm.

A perfect Fall day here. Blue skies, light breeze, warm in the sun. Love it ☀️ especially after only reaching 15oC on the 28th!

The default pattern, fingers crossed not too much of it this year with plenty of other weather types

Less wind and rain would be welcome. I’ll happily take a cold dry and sunny autumn and winter, with the occasional few damp days. Like 2010/11, or even 2009/10, with longer cold sunny spells. Even cold and cloudy is welcome. Mild and wet is the worst kind.

2009/10 would be perfect, with a much less wet November. Nearly had 300mm of rain... here!

It is a date record. The previous was 8.3c in 1956.

It's indeed a lovely start to Autumn, sunny with a chill to the air. 👍

November 2019 was relatively chilly for London but then pretty much the entire winter was average or above average. So perhaps we need to suffer through a wet and windy autumn to get some cold + snow this year..

13.3C here at 2pm. That's pretty remarkable for this location at this time of year.

There's been about an inch of rain since yesterday evening, but not a patch on September 2018 which saw 58.2mm on the first day and nearly 130mm in first four days (there was only about 9mm in the rest of the month though).

So it's the first day of autumn and yet it feels more like summer than the last few days did. Was a hint of autumn earlier though with the lowest temperature here since early June last night.

Got down to 6.6'c here last night.

Bablake got a 2.1'c and a grass frost...... a wonderful way to start Autumn!

 

I'm really happy how Summer was this year too, it seemed to last forever, and started just when we needed it to, in late March.

We've had a few grim spell in late Summer, but on the whole, it's been rather better than average in my opinion due to how long it seemed to go on 🙂
