    I was dreading the milder weather this week as the cold and snow had kept me occupied during lockdown. I’m absolutely bored out of my mind.

    I'll continue to be contrary! In these parts it was actually bright/sunny for a reasonable amount of time today, and in the mild weather (12.1 °C max) it was extremely pleasant to go for a walk. Quite honestly I *do* prefer this to cold now. If we were going to get a significant amount of snow then sure I'd take that instead. But today was *nice* for me. Actively nice.

    Unfortunately the forecast isn't. Lots of rain and lots of wind for days to come. Now *that* kind of mild I'll join in the complaints for! 😛

    Oh definitely milder. And wetter. Much preferred the cold to this like most others are saying. Going forward, I haven’t even looked yet 🤢😊

    Repetitive hint starting to indicate of something that may begin in early March if you were to look at the chart's, cold & snow that is - if any of you are interested that is.

    Just have to find other preoccupiers now. The one positive is ample time outdoors for me, on my bike/walking without lots of layers on. The other drawback is everywhere will increasingly get busier too with nowhere for people to go to otherwise.

    Thats kinda how i feel. I do love cold but it wasn't 'productive' cold last week, just an awful biting wind and cloudy, and it was hard not to feel a bit glum given we're still in lockdown.

    Almost Springlike today. Pleasant sunshine. Shower clouds bubbling up.

    And then you get under one of the showers and you’re reminded that you’re actually in the middle of a rubbish winter mild spell.

    And just like that, the illusion has gone.

    Raining again here, the last 9 months have had more wet days than I can ever remember, seems so difficult to get even 2 dry days together.

    Did at least get a nice double rainbow as one shower was clearing.

    Today is the kind of mild I don't enjoy: 10 °C, a strong wind, occasional rain and constant gloom. Tomorrow looks even worse, so staying at home all day with a cup of coffee or three won't be any hardship!

    Springlike this afternoon, sunny, not windy and felt distinctly warm. Much preferable to clouds, wind and rain with mild temps

    Aye, 7 dry weeks coming up, get ready for massive change from mid April, wettest ever spell coming up, we'll have to pay for this dry spell

    Hope not that sounds like 2012! A summer like that would be the last thing everyone needs this year just as things are open again

    Very surprised at the frequency of some very high gusts of wind. Gusts in excess of 40 mph here today mild but wind chill with that wind speed takes it a whole lot lower....!

    Made it up to 12.6 °C on Tuesday, the highest of the year so far, but as Anyweather mentioned it didn't feel that way because of the strong wind. Still blustery now, and I'm glad it'll calm down a bit from later tomorrow and let me enjoy what look like very decent days for the rest of the week. Obviously no interest for those who see benign as boring, but right now I'm OK with a few days of benign.

    10th straight day of mild, boring crap. Leaden skies, rain and wind. Still don’t know how people great mild winter rubbish with glee.

    At least it looks to settle down more from tomorrow.

    One point of interest today: a max of 15.1 °C, so today has seen the first 15 of the year. Always a sign that spring is on the way. Noticed on my walk this afternoon that the number of daffodils around has increased considerably since I was last up that way on Saturday. (Been only doing short walks for a few days due to mild vaccination after-effects.)

    Not much of a day today, I'll admit. Gloomy and murky and windy. From tomorrow onwards, though, that's a different matter. 10-11 degrees, light winds and a reasonable amount of sunshine? Now that is weather I'll accept very gladly indeed. Would I take it over bright sunshine after a foot of snow? No. Would I take it over three snowflakes, 2 °C and a dull dry easterly? Yes. Every. Single. Time.

    I use the Brinno TLC200 Pro. I've used this camera for over 2 years and I think is absolutely brilliant and very easy to use!😃 The temperatures displayed on the time-lapses I edit in myself using the Met Office temperature observations for my area.
