To think this is a really warm October ?

Well, in London and South East?
Temps have been up to 19C and look to be that way well into the end of the month. I remember past years when it was really cold in October. Now it only seems to be in the morning and later evenings.
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

I'm going to take a random guess that this will be one of the warmest Octobers on record.
People are right about March/October though.
Wiki says daily mean temp in Brum (BHX) is :
So March is generally much colder than October, and October not really much worse than May.

Yes just the other day I was out walking around 10 o clock at night in just a hoodie, no coat or gloves and I said how nice the weather was for this time of year as I remember in previous years taking my kids trick or treating and being in a coat and gloves and still being cold yet the other night it wasn't cold just nice and cool

I'm on the Essex coast. I still have tomatoes on vines in the garden, had the back door open for a couple of hours on Monday to let the freshly mopped floors dry. We still have our summer duvet on the beds and the heating has not gone on yet. However, I sometimes need a jumper in our north-facing living room during the day and a fluffy blanket in the evening, but it's still very mild. Worrying really, isn't it?
I remember about 10 years ago it was hot enough at the beginning of October to take the kids down the beach; that was unheard of then.
@SicParvisMagna We are still picking tomatoes too. I have a foxglove out in full bloom and my arum lily is throwing up more flowers. So mild overnight (windows open and summer duvet has gone back on) Our heating is usually on early Oct (I'm a cold person normally) I remember going to bonfire nights in big coats, gloves and scarves.... being able to see your breath. We'll be going in shorts and T shirts next week at this rate ! (Sussex coast)

Yes it’s warm, and it’s probably the coldest October for the rest of your life.

When are people going to wake up to the potential disaster we’re sleepwalking into?

I miss autumn's of past. I know it helps with heating bills etc but feels very odd to be this warm in what is practically November. I only remember it being like this about 12 years ago or so. I know everyone will be jumping on me for saying it but I don't like it. Feels like this year has been a never ending summer.
