Autumn 2020 - Moans, Ramps & Chat

As much as I would love a cold frosty and dry winter( I love hot summers btw, and hate mild winters), but will have to concede a mild winter would be better to deal with Covid.

A cold winter with days in the low single figures will most likely lead to more people having colds and flu. That said, nearly every winter season has a flu and cold virus. The lack of daylight weakens the immune system, and most people are indoors for longer periods of time.

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

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've lost my excitement for the heat this year. Not looking forward to the +30°c later this week. I find myself daydreaming about eating toffee apples in the evening while wrapped up snug in temp

Not only that, but the virus likes the cold, plus humid weather causes the virus in aersols to drop out of the air column quicker.

If the UK hits at least 30C during this spell, it'll be the first time that every month from June to September has had an absolute max of at least 30.0C somewhere in the UK since 1949 presumably (cannot 100% confirm this due to limited data at hand). 2005 almost did it but missed by a few tenths of a degree in September and May that year also had 31.4C. Other years that come to mind are 1911 and 1949 which successfully achieved the 30C in every month from June to September whilst 1933, similar to 2005, missed the mark somewhat in September.

1947 (and possibly 1868) is the only year in recorded history that 30.0C or more has been observed somewhere in the UK every month from May to September although as previously mentioned, 2005 almost achieved this too. 

Pretty sure i checked a few weeks and 2006 sounds about right.

August 2006 failed to reach 30.0C, the first August to do so since 1993. So another near miss like 1933 and 2005.

Thankfully its looking like that dirty unseasonable continental air will have gone by mid week week to be replaced by a much better fresher pattern. Cooler nights, dry, pleasant sunshine, not bad at all for a Autumnal September.

I would guess the warmer the weather, the less spread of the virus, we all love snow/cold, but I reckon that will increase chances of getting the virus/spreads way more

  it’s very interesting you say that how other countries like Brazil India Bangladesh and many other hot countries The virus is spreading rapidly the tropical hot conditions have had halted the spread of COVID-19

Blimey. I've never seen the trees so far advanced into brown this far south this early. Walking around Saltram national trust this morning, the grounds are about a month ahead compared to normal years. Horse chestnut rust is very advanced, bit even the oaks/plane/ beech are very advanced and gone at the crown now.

Aren’t the horse chestnuts suffering a disease at the moment? The ones round here turn in early August nearly every year, and this year we’re turning in July.

Looks great.....just one thing though.....where is it ?

I was watching the cricket from Manchester on TV earlier and the cameras picked out the sunset in the West. About 7pm. Quite stunning. Reminded me of my old Stranglers t shirt Rattus Norveigicus. Being the old punk I am.

Nearly 26c here today and clear blue skies...personally had enough of this type weather as we had large swathes of it back in April and May and occasionally in the less than impressive Summer months.

As another possible lockdown approaches we'll go back to dry, sunny warm conditions though I'd much rather we have cooler weather and like to see the near continent cool down.

I agree. Whilst I have enjoyed the hot spells (as well as the thunderstorms) we have had during the summer, I am more than ready for something more autumnal now since we are in the middle of September. I feel the same way from the middle of March whenever winter begins to outstay its welcome.
I hope we do have a decent autumn this year though. And none of that anticyclonic gloom rubbish.

Anyone have a feeling we're in another one of htese "blocking" patterns? Hardly rained here. I mean if we got some northern blocking in winter or late autumn this would be a perfect scenario, but no doubt it will just be mild and wet.
