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

The trend of warmer winters is predictable
The trend is yes.
But energy companies could not possibly know that this specific October would be a mild one. Even with a warming climate there will be milder and colder autumns.

I’m in the Sw my thermometer was reading 18 degrees outside the back door for most of the day and 22 indoors. In previous years I turned it on in September without a thought we said 31 st October was what we hoped to get to but the kids are now wanting to try to get to 15 th Nov

NI here, don't think we have had a night below 4 degrees so far, some days very warm at 12 degrees
My cosmos, zinnia, lavender, calendula, poppies all still flowering happily - they have normally been killed by frost by now. My garden definitely doesn't think it's autumn yet.

Sorry posted too soon.
It's t-shirt weather when walking but you need a jumper on the beach. Its still very pleasant. We spent several hours on the beach today before it got a bit too nippy.
(We had a tent and layers and warm drinks and no-one swam but still)

Definitely warmer than the past few years. Last few years I have gone ghost tours/walks for Halloween and remember it was zero degrees in the evening. I was freezing and had boots, scarf, hat, gloves on! This year I'm in a thin coat and I've not really needed it.

17 and gorgeous blue sky and sun in NW England today.
It’s been a very mild month, mid teens most days, which has given a much needed breather with the heating prices so that’s good. Probably not a good thing in the long run though, especially if it’s part of the ever increasing warming pattern.

I think it’s been warm, at least where I live, at the end of October for years.
I judge it by how many layers you need when trick or treating. When my kids were tiny they needed coats under their costumes but since about 2014 that’s not been the case and they’ve been out with just their costumes or just a long sleeved T-shirt underneath. I have lots of pictures of them sat in the garden carving pumpkins in the sunshine.
this year isn’t an anomaly, but it’s definitely warmer for the last 8 or so years than it was before that.

My garden looks like September, the dahlias are still have buds and the hanging baskets of fuchsias are glorious for example. I think that the very dry Summer has influenced the garden, they were getting no water for many weeks so when the rain did come, and it's warmer than usual, they're making up for the lost weeks of growth. I used to always dig up the dahlias at half term hoping to beat the first frosts but there's been no sign of frost yet.
