I think London has fallen down to 4 degrees at some point every day since the weekend. Which is nippy but we're not in minus figures.

I am finding it so bloody cold though!! Anyone else the same? Is it because it's been quite mild until now?

My ears were actually tingling with pain from cold coming home this evening Confused

It is cold, but expected this time of year is it not?

AbsentmindedWoman · 29/10/2018 20:43

Perhaps I'm just getting old then, I don't remember feeling the cold this much in years gone by!

I think because the last couple of years have been very mild, we’ve been spoiled.
But I think 10-12 is average, not 5-10
So yes it’s cold
If it’s like this until Feb/March it’ll be horrible

I feel like it's gone colder much sooner this year.

This morning, the cars were thick with ice and there was a thick frost everywhere! I am North West though - might be warmer in the south.

We even had a few flakes of snow the other day Shock

The griters were out by me tonight that to me shows its colder than normally is

Andro · 29/10/2018 20:53

We woke up this morning to a hard frost, a little earlier in the year than normal and a shock to the system!

Henryismyfriend · 29/10/2018 20:56

I think it's because it seems to have dropped all of a sudden rather than a steady drop into single figures. I'm a freeze arse though, my heating has been on a month already!

SparkleBanana · 29/10/2018 20:59

We’ve had the gritter go passed tonight. I’ve been so cold I had to get another quilt, just cannot get warm. It was still quite hot just a couple of weeks ago when the sun was out but this weekend there’s been icicles.

StoorieHoose · 29/10/2018 21:02

Nearly -3 in my part of central Scotland this morning when I got up. Don’t think it got above 2 all day

Dementedswan · 29/10/2018 21:03

We had a tiny bit of snow and and bad crash locally due to black ice on Saturday. My thermostat is set to 17.5 and is kicking in constantly. It's definitely cold near the north east coast.

HeronLanyon · 29/10/2018 21:11

Bizarrely had a 14 tog duvet with 6 tog doubled over on top of it last night! I was struggling to get warm. Could hardly burrow my way out this am. I think it has just so suddenly turned cold and I for one am not yet acclimatised after this humdinger of a summer. Hmm

AbsentmindedWoman · 29/10/2018 21:12

Ok, glad it seems that it is indeed chillier and not just me being a wimp!

I'm under a duvet, but have added long thick socks Shock

Yes, it is a bit of a shock to the system... Around 17° on Wednesday and 2° today!

Spasm0dic · 29/10/2018 21:13

Standing in a bus stop freezing. I know its to be expected though. Have you got thermals?

MrsBlondie · 29/10/2018 21:14

Im finding same. Freezing. Think its because the temperature dropped quickly. Im dreading winter

JaceLancs · 29/10/2018 21:15

I’m cold here too
Put the central heating on tonight first time this year
Had to de ice my car
Considering getting out my fur coat (fake)
I’ve been wearing gloves and scarf first thing on my way to work
Not found my winter duvet yet or shut bedroom window I’m saving that for when I’m really feeling it

RedTulip86 · 29/10/2018 21:17

-5 in the morning here in the Highlands

AbsentmindedWoman · 29/10/2018 21:18

It's awful to think there are people out there who will not be able to put on any heating tonight. Especially anyone older or frail who is at risk of becoming pretty unwell Sad

I'm wearing my ski thermals in bed with 2 duvets and hot water bottle 😂

AdoraBell · 29/10/2018 21:28

Is the air damp OP? That makes it feel much colder. I’m fecking freezing here in Somerset.

TakeMe2Insanity · 29/10/2018 21:29

In London and the temperature has dropped a lot. 2 weekends ago we were out all day using the buggy as a coat rack.

We were in Scotland at the end of September and there was a significant temperature difference from what we used to London. It felt like autumn was there but not in London.

Time to dig out the winter clothes.

WaxOnFeckOff · 29/10/2018 21:30

-4.5 fr us overnight, -3 on my drive to work this morning and a balmy +2 on the way home in the afternoon. Only have a 2.5 tog duvet on though, I'm a hot sleeper.
