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

A very warm November in Scandinavia, possibly one of the warmest ever.

The first week of December seems also warmer than normal with southern winds AGAIN!!

I can't remember the last time of northern winds here.

All in all, last year's tragedy continues...

Another Autumn about to pass by, cant say it's been very memorable weatherwise, little storm activity, indeed no gales of note. Often wet, with a bit of localised flooding but thankfully spared anything significant. Very dull and mild second half cancelled out by a sunnier cooler first half.

November has been very tedious, it is though about to end on a more seasonal note. What a drab November in the main for lots of reasons, good riddance to it!

I really can't think of much to recommend this autumn. Really only the abnormally settled spell in September that brought a late burst of summer warmth, an instance of thunder in late October, and gales abruptly followed by a welcome sunny frosty spell in the first of November are of note. With five more days to go, the depth of frost and extent of fog will determine how notable the spell is. Otherwise very mundane. In recent times, the end of November and early December 2016 brought a spell of very cold nights and fog during the day.

I can honestly say that this has been one of the most, if not the most monotonous autumns throughout my lifetime. It is currently -1C where I am right now along with some frost INMBY and top temps will be around 5 to 9 Celsius for the last days of November which is a good thing, but that isn't enough to save this season of essentially nothingness. Apart from the first couple of days in October, there has been nothing noteworthy.

If I was you I’d look for a move further North...Northern Finland for example. 😃:santa-emoji:

Proper late Autumn/Winter weather - lovely outlook as well!

I think I had 3 or 4 air frosts at the end of September. NI broke its coldest September minimum record. I've had plenty of rain but no storms of note. I'm in the extreme NW of Ireland and the level of windstorms has dramatically decreased over this past 10 years. The weather is just so boring and appears to be getting more bland year on year.

I can’t really think of anything interesting at all that’s happened here this autumn. Only managed a single ground frost so far let alone any air frosts. Most of the time it’s just been dull and damp over and over again.

September and October were nice months in Dublin but not months I'll look back on and say, I wish I could repeat them. November has been rubbish as it usually is, less "dire" than November 2018 and especially 2019 but extremely boring. That sets the tone for this autumn to echo what some others have said. Definitely one of the most monotone seasons I have seen and up there with Winter 2016-17 or Dec 2018/Jan 2019 period.

It's been a decent November here. Not a classic but much better than last year's bland mildfest. A general cooling trend since the start of the month this time round, interrupted by just a mild blip mid-month. The weather now is very lugubrious - cold and grey with foggy mornings and murky afternoons not much above zero. No snow yet but that may be about to change in the coming days if the forecast is accurate. 

It's also been a dry month (about an inch of rain so far), which has been most welcome because October was far too wet.

Did a timelapse overnight and saw something odd happening in the clouds, holes that appeared almost like a whirlpool developing in a river, The clouds seem to rotate around a hole, seems most notable between 22.45pm and 2am. Any ideas would have cause this?

I tend to agree with the sentiment that despite how the November CET may skew things and cause people to imagine hair drier south westerlies, the prevailing memory of this Autumn is that it has been largely forgettable and boring but with a few cold and sunny weeks thrown in. It's even hard to remember the wet opening to October because memory takes you back to last year when the fronts were more frequent.

Morning all

i have to get this off my chest and my not so much a moan but more an observation is the yearly winter enthusiast in regards to snow fall.

Every year for the last ten or so I have been on this site frustrate me immensely by stating the obvious, what I mean by this are comments like the uk will see snow only to be followed up with Scotland, higher parts of the NW etc etc. 
 

personally I can’t get excited like some on here if snow is forecast where generally this is a given every winter. I live in one of the lowest elevations in the country here in the fens. Now if the models started to produce charts (like in 2010) for snow in the areas we don’t see it on a regular basis then I could get excited as would many of us on here.

So please a plea from me look for signals of widespread snow that could impact the country, this would be newsworthy not snow at the top of a mountain where no one lives and has little impact unless your a skier.

Good morning,

Yes I'm probably in a similar camp where I posted a while ago how winters are becoming the UKs 'worst' season for seasonal weather. Summers are becoming the season to look out for seasonal weather! (especially in the South and East)

With regards to Autumn 2020: boring... No real change of weather from end of September as it started off colder than average transitioning to warmer than average as the season went on. Very dull too although today the sun is out!

Just started sleeting here. I'm not sure if it will amount to something more substantial overnight.

Thursday is looking good for snow here. Unfortunately the models want to make me pay for it by introducing mildness in the following days. I really hope that gets watered down - I'm just getting into the Christmas mood.
