Are people really finding this weather that cold? It is not cold unless the canals freeze!

    That's more of the situation I was thinking of Bottesford- sitting around.

    This is perfect ! Let's hope it's the start of a downward trend for the next 6 months.

    I work in C London and live in NW Kent...8C mornings and 17C max temps is cold when my body temperature gauge is expecting 24C+ and 16C+ nights! Sleeping is lovely, but otherwise I just hate the cold! :'( Agree with Bottesford - Augusts over the past number of years have been dire!

    Apart from the thunder, this month has been crap here. Relatively cloudy and clammy for the first week and a bit. Now utterly boring imho. Polar maritime dross, without even the big showers that can sometimes result

    No better over this side of the North Sea either. 13c this morning at 9am and under overcast skies. Gone from shorts and everything open one week to slippers & back in an airless stuffy room the next. Far too early for this - the winter is long enough as it is!

So very sad to find out one of my dear work colleagues and friends took her life yesterday. A beautiful soul. They always seem to be taken from us too soon. I hope she is at peace.

    We don't know the ins and outs, she had had a lot of health problems and her husband seems to think her latest illness was just one too far. Bit of a shock to say the least, she will be very much missed.

9 consecutive above average months here at Durham... imagine the reaction if there were 9 cooler ones! Acclimatised to the abnormal warmth

    There were 13 consecutive months below average from May 2012 to May 2013 as I recall so yes anything is possible I suspect. August 2014 is looking likely to be well below average for some. I'm registering 1.5c below the 1981-2010 mean as things stand. Nothing is predictable any more if truth be told.

    So to answer Isolated Frost, I wouldn't rule out that particular prospect but then again it may well not happen either. I think the certainty that another extreme month for one whichever reason be it rainfall, dryness, temperature is on the cards before the year is out, all IMHO. Afterall we appear to be world of weather extremes right now.

finding it difficult to cope with the loss of my dad during the early hours of monday, my only remaining parent , cherish them if you still have them, its easy to take for granted

    Sad news- I hope others around you remain supportive and understanding of the magnitude of the loss, and that with time you are able to carry positive memories forward while getting fewer flashbacks to the "grief" emotions as time goes on.
