Some early thoughts from TheWeatherOutlook here.

In the meantime, I would like it to Stop.Raining.Now There are a couple of rain weather warnings for today.

GloriaSmud Tue 10-Apr-18 12:45:54

Signs of something warmer on the way? (Although it's towards the end of next week) max temperatures for Thursday...

It is going to be like 1976. I have ordered it - by decree of magimedi grin

I would love to have a few dry days - am aching to get on in the garden & it is like a bog at present.

I'm glad you've ordered a good summer, magi grin
Few more days of this chilly 'meh' weather and then it's still looking good from Sunday onwards.
It's freezing here today and colder now than when I got up ~ 5.8C at the moment.

magimedi Wed 11-Apr-18 12:26:28

I was actually too hot when I went out earlier & had to take of my fleece. It's 14.5C here today & sunny & feels tropical!!

GloriaSmud Wed 11-Apr-18 14:30:29

Wow that is tropical.
Still cloudy here (Leicester) and we've hit the dizzy heights of <glances at weather station>.....7.1C

Just back from a walk along the sea front (Eastbourne). 16.5, people picnicing on the beach & a couple of girls (aged about 10/11) paddling up to their knees!!! The sea temp is about 6C!!!!

When I got home the ice cream van was doing its rounds. (I love it as it plays the theme tune from Monty Python!).

Summer is here. grin

Woohoo!! I just saw this and it looks lovely and warm next week!

applelolly Wed 11-Apr-18 18:30:23

oh yes, finally. please,please,please let it stop raining. I so so need to do garden stuff, but currently I am having trouble distinguishing where our garden pond ends and the rest of the garden begins hmm
I have put my winter coat , and then got it back out again 3 times now!!
I have been looking at pictures of my garden this time last year and all the flowers/blossom tress/ shrubs etc are so much further on.....

applelolly Wed 11-Apr-18 18:31:15

ps has been horrible and grey and rainy then drizzly here for last 2 days with whopping highs of 7 degrees!

PistFump Wed 11-Apr-18 18:36:35

Indeed...I am bored out of my tree with the grey drizzly fog we've had here in the Midlands the past few days.

All my fingers and toes crossed for a little bit of sunshine ☀️

Tomasz Schafernaker used the words 'mini heatwave' to describe next week's weather on Radio4 earlier, so it's got to happen now!

Temperature chart for Tuesday afternoon ~ not bad...

GloriaSmud Wed 11-Apr-18 19:17:48

And possibly the sort of temperatures for next Friday evening...

uservvy Wed 11-Apr-18 19:20:28

Desperate for it to stop raining. My horses are itching to get on their summer paddock, its so wet if I let them on it now it will be trashed within a day sad

Gertrudethestag Wed 11-Apr-18 21:00:03

Wow gloria that is insane!! Can I officially go camping now?

AnyFucker Wed 11-Apr-18 21:02:49

I cant understand that map

leesmum Wed 11-Apr-18 22:46:33

Bring on the sunshine, about time smile

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 11-Apr-18 23:21:25

I was about to start a thread called 'sun watch' grin

Next week does look lovely. By the end of the week we will have threads abou sunburn and hay fever! Of course it's timed for the kids going back to school.

GloriaSmud Thu 12-Apr-18 06:43:19

OYBBK ~ I was intending the thread to be a sort of 'weather website predictions for summer 2018' type of thing but then there were hints about next week being 'a bit like summer,' so now that's been included as well.
But yes, this time next week we could be hearing, 'it's tooooooo hot' and 'I want it to coooool dooooown.' hmm

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 12-Apr-18 07:11:02


It's going to be quite a shock to the system!

IrenetheQuaint Thu 12-Apr-18 07:13:01

Good Lord. I may be able to jettison my vest shock

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 12-Apr-18 07:14:19

I'm going to switch to my summer duvet <gasp>

GloriaSmud Thu 12-Apr-18 07:38:50

I'll be able to stop wearing my scarf......indoors.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 12-Apr-18 08:34:55

magimedi Thu 12-Apr-18 09:11:44
