    Just been out with the dog for a pre 5am business trip and while she wandered around looking for the final bits of snow to walk on, I gradually got damper in the drizzle.

    at least it was mild though but how depressing this time of year is😩

    anyway 48 hours from now we’ll hopefully be parking the car up at Manchester and heading a long way south for some welcome winter sun and warmth.

    Had a couple of overcast but dry days, the drizzle and mist set in last night. Yesterday maxed at 6.7 here.  Current temp this am is 5.8°C.  For a few days now there has hardly been any wind, the air has been so still.  I don't recall any named storms through Autumn of any significance, nor any to date, please correct me if I'm wrong.  Noticing though the lighter afternoons, sun not setting till 4.40 'ish, not properly dark till just after 5pm.

    @iand61 where in the sunshine are you off to?

    Cape Verde.

    we should have gone in mid November but had to cancel when my wife’s brother died suddenly so we are trying again.

    only a week this time but welcome all the same.

    Ooh lovely, the volcanic islands.  Colleague of mine went to the island of Sal last year and loved every minute.

    Forecast of rain by lunchtime in the south of the region and what do we get? Bright with partly blue skies!

    Rotten day in these parts with cloud and drizzle broken only by some heavier bursts now and then and no matter whether it fell into the “mild” category or not, it felt increasingly raw as the day went on.

    typical January fare I suppose but horrible all the same.

    A little milder today, reached the dizzy heights of 9.4C. Hardly any wind for much of the day so I got quite warm when going for a brisk walk just before lunchtime. A spell of light rain/drizzle around lunch time and mostly cloudy throughout. All a bit nondescript really.

    A far better day than the last three, we had a burst of rain, but largely dry, and the afternoon saw brighter conditions with some glimpses of sunshine. This evening a cold one on the cards, clear skies now and an air frost likely by dawn.

    Yesterday reached 8.8°C here, drizzle cleared late afternoon and so did the cloud, resulting in clear skies last night and a minima of -1°C.  A nice sharp frosty start this morning current temp 0.2°C.

    After a couple of days without, I didn’t expect a frost on the cars this morning but it looks like the scraper will be needed.

    i haven’t kept figures to back it up but I’d be amazed if we haven’t already more frosty mornings this winter than throughout the entire last one and possibly even the one before.

    Yes, been a demand for de-icer, constantly exceeded sales this season, flies off the shelf as soon as it comes in.

    Didn't quite make it to freezing here overnight, down to a low of 0.6C in the early hours, sufficient for a ground frost at least, but temp has been rising since, currently 3.2C.

    Yes, no shortage of frosty mornings this winter, even racking them up during the 'milder' spells as well.
