According to the BBC next week will be colder with a brisk wind in the South from cold air from Moscow

Great i love a bit of cold air,can finally justify putting the CH on

Be interesting to see if there right as they do seem to predict weather that dosent happen grin

Kitten any thoughts ??

It does look like we will be drawing in polar continental air. (Don't you love the emotive language from the bbc). But tbh it's not going to be that cold - day time temps only dropping 4c or so from where we are now. Might feel a bit nippy on southern coasts due to it being quite breezy, but most areas look pretty settled.

Aghhh. I've not bought any winter boots yet. My old ones are knackered.

Yippee, another cold weather thread!!
Thanks, OYBBK, slightly colder in Derbyshire today...DH succumbed and put on CH last night.
I am debating whether to purchase a winter coat for the dog.
Rush out, Meglet, and get those boots grin

I have to admit its alot cooler feeling this October than last October

We've already had a pair of Robins feeding from our birdtable in our garden ~ normally they don't appear until November/December time and I've said to DH/DDs that I wonder if they know something we don't when it comes to the winter i.e. possibly a cold one?
For a bit of fun, TheWeatherOutlook have posted their thoughts on the coming winter/Christmas. They're going for cold and dry at the moment.

I don't think its been too cold...yet! We haven't had the heating on or lit the wood burner. we do have a Holly Tree that has tons of berries on it, never seen that many before, that's supposed to mean a cold winter? grin

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 11-Oct-15 21:49:24

I think it just means its been a really good year for growing berries smile

hooch I've ordered some boots to try on in store. Coats (me and the dc's) were sorted in the spring sale.

i remember last October,it was really really warm,hated it

i much prefer this coming week's weather

BrianButterfield Sun 11-Oct-15 22:58:06

It's still pretty warm in these parts (Yorks coast) - I went out without a coat on today so not bad! Still drying well on the line too!

Can't wait! Really hope we have a cold winter and not another shit one where it's just 12 degrees and raining for 2 months.

this morning is sunny with a chill

central heating clicked on

beautiful crisp morning

SideOrderofChips Mon 12-Oct-15 09:39:51

Where i am in Jersey its alot cooler than normal for October. The girls are actually going to school with proper coats on as its 10oC in a morning here (thats cold for us).

New mini chips (3 weeks old) is confusing me as i have no idea how to dress him for this weather!!

ilovechristmas123 Mon 12-Oct-15 09:47:10

yes Winter coats here,mind you it dosent help when the child leaves his jumper at school grin

leesmum Mon 12-Oct-15 09:50:57

Was a chilly but sunny 4 degrees here this morning smile

GloriaSmud Mon 12-Oct-15 11:33:49

A chilly 2.4C when we got up this morning but now got bright sunshine and it's 11.5C Was amazed at the amount of weeds we had at the allotment yesterday ~ I think after all the mizzling damp/rain this summer and then the sunshine/warmth of the last few weeks, they've had a growth spurt. Hopefully they'll have a rethink with the chillier weather this week!

SideOrder I wondered whether you'd had your little addition! Congratulations ~ mini chips is a lovely name! grin

hoochymama1 Mon 12-Oct-15 16:23:35

Congratulations, sideorder, Ooo, 3 weeks old! Stay in and keep nice and warm and cosy smile
Ah, apart from dropping off and collecting the older chips from school grin

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 12-Oct-15 17:21:43

awww, congratulations Sideorder smile

Remaining cool and mostly dry for a good week or so ahead.

SideOrderofChips Mon 12-Oct-15 22:33:58

Its his mumsnet name grin as christened by the Christmas board!

I like it nice and cool grin

There's nothing better than a crisp cold Autumn day - I'm another one who isn't dismayed by a touch of frost. Give me a week or so and obviously I'll be wingeing about being too cold, though.

Netweather has a report here about the snow that's arrived in Poland and Moscow. And these guys have had a very early arrival at Slimbridge, from over Siberia way.

oh i was just reading about the swan,interesting to see if winter will come early

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 13-Oct-15 21:07:36

tomorrow, if I can find a chunk of time I'll start a just for fun winter forecast thread. Will need a bit of work to collate things.
