We're up to 23C at the moment with quite a nice breeze.
How about everyone else?

No idea of temperature, but it's lovely and bright and sunny.

I thought people migh be interested in this BBc article which explains how the term "Indian summer" originated.

26c in southern Leicestershire

Edith ~ that's a great article. I love all the expressions used to describe fine weather at different times of the year!

Temperature seems to have risen a little in the last 1/2 hour ~ up to 25C now (Leicester Forest East side of Leicester <waves at lubey>)

26*c here in Norfolk.

Haberdashery Sat 01-Oct-11 13:27:10

27 in SW London but it feels a lot hotter than that!

GwendolineMaryLacey Sat 01-Oct-11 13:28:23

I can't read the articles, I'm too busy sulking. I hate this bloody weather, it's most unfair that I have to put up with it in pigging October angry

And I'm trying to do DD's school applications and it's too hot to think. If she gets stuck with a shit school I'm blaming the weather.

GloriaSmud Sat 01-Oct-11 19:38:45

And Gravesend broke the October record ~ 29.9C!

LynetteScavo Sat 01-Oct-11 19:41:24

27 in the midlands.

It's wrong, I tell ya! Just wrong. <shakes head gravely>

JajasWjolef Sat 01-Oct-11 19:48:03

I just love this weather sooo very much, I would love to live like this all the time. Being outside eating at 8pm and feeling warm is just bliss. 28 degrees this afternoon - perfect smile.

It is wrong in October though it has to be said.....

GloriaSmud Sat 01-Oct-11 19:54:14

Jajas, it has been lovely ~ just been to a BBQ at my Mum and Dads and it's a weird feeling to be sitting outside doing that on October 1st!

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 01-Oct-11 20:22:28

I got to 29.2C on my weather station but Gravesend has smashed the record with a whopping 29.9C recorded. Very impressive!

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 01-Oct-11 20:22:51

(oops just saw Glorias post!)

adamschic Sat 01-Oct-11 20:25:46

We've had it warm but cloudy in Cumbria sad. Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous but I was at work. I would have loved to lie out sunbathing today 1st October, so very envy of you all further south.
