    Let's all hope this year's OFI bears fruit, then? As, apart from the BFTE (Smarch 2018) and last year's less-than-perfect effort, all the winters since 2013 have been largely snowless!👍

    welp the first misty start this year when I woke up, but I don't mind that at all and now it's clearing away leaving blue skies. I think today is going to be another lovely day 😁

    The sun didn't last long, did it? I was gearing up for the allotment when it got clody and we had a bit of drizzle. Oh well...

    An absolutely lovely day here.  Max temp of 20C at 14.55, currently 12.9C, having fallen sharply from 16C in an hour.  Humidity is 78%  

    Wind currently 0mph (from a high of 11mph at 11:00)  Average speed over 2 mins = 0.7 and over 10 minutes = 0.6

    Pressure: 1029.8 rising slowly

    We actually had rain today, all 0.2mm of it at 03:00 hrs.  If it carries on like this I'll have to increase watering the vegetable and flower beds again. 

    image.thumb.png.1ca9b440bcf7886f45b579e3e350bdbc.png Is it me?  I'd noticed the usually dramatic and fascinating sunsets we get from our west facing garden seem less intense and vibrant  after the first lockdown in 2020 - I've often wondered if the cleaner air, from lack of air (reduced car?) travel reduced the drama - would love to read other, more scientific weather related thoughts/opinions.  This first photo taken on this  evening dog walk is not untypical since the autumn of 2020.  Contrast Sunday evenings at 12 Oct 2019,  14 Oct 2018 and 8 October 2017.

    Lovely autumnal day here. Down to 7C overnight and misty over the fields first thing, but now plenty of hazy sunshine and a gentle breeze. Captured a couple of plants glistening with dew on my walk earlier. The dandelion flower seed head covered in water droplets made it look like a snowball plant. Oops, I've mentioned snow and it's only October..... 🤫

    Lovely photos @Blessed Weatherand @Eagle Eye  I’m not at home this evening. Popped over to beloved Suffolk to visit a friend. It’s currently 9C, 80% humidity, wind WNW and 4mph. Pressure 1029hPa steady. No rain has fallen today.

    Today’s highlight; the big Suffolk sky, the silence except for several nearby owls and this….a proper big sky sunset 😍 Definitely got to retire back home to Suffolk

    Thanks SH. I moved to Suffolk from Wales many years ago and have to say it's a beautiful county. Bats fly up and down past the back of my house, owls sit in the nearby trees hooting at night, and this year I've had house martins, black birds, robins, collared doves and wrens nesting in my garden/house. With regards weather, for me it's wonderful in summer but a little too dry (keeping plants alive a struggle) but winters are defo more to my liking with lots of frosty, cold weather (altho recent years not enough snow). But overall I love it here. 🙂

    Had a beautiful time outside today, though there was some high cloud it still felt warm when you're in a enclosed area. I went to a lovely place yesterday and unfortunately forgot its name but my dad took me to the place so he knows the name.

     

    These were the pics I took

    It sounds lovely where you are Blessed. I miss the owls and wrens, the blue tits hanging upside down from window frames tapping on the kitchen and bedroom windows, the swallows that nested under the eaves and around the barns and stables. Although I currently live in a village, it’s a larger village, with masses of starlings that have driven out the small birds I used to feed when first here. We do get the garden regularly buzzed and quartered by red kites, which are spectacular but I miss the song birds and the quiet of rural Suffolk. 

    Max of 15C today, sunny until around 3pm with a couple of short but heavy showers.  Sky clearing although not in time for a spectacular sunset today. Currently 6C with clear sky and mist forming over the fields.

    Today’s highlight, very blue sky and sun for heath walking with the dogs, with background of stags roaring, although didn’t see any (quite relieved as wouldn’t want  either our dogs or my friend and I to get near any of those testosterone filled and aggressive chaps).

    Only 4c when I went out at 6am and our first grass frost of autumn. Misty over the fields but a nice sunrise appearing on our way home.

    Same here Blazerblue and Weatherman_93 (here being temporarily in very rural spot nearish Snape).    Managed to be up early enough before the mist burned off.

    Beautifully sunny day with a max of 15C. Had a great walk with my dog at Orford, and pub lunch, delicious death by calories Mac and Cheese and salad.

    and ending with an equally lovely big Suffolk sky.  Currently 13C

    A big thumbs to Gods beautiful handiwork this morning. I don’t often get to see mist hanging in the valley like that. Photo looking towards Rye and wind farm at Camber. Temp currently 3.9 seems to be the minimum it got to overnight.
