Yes, please - I'm on holiday in Cornwall, that would be perfect (although the forecast is 21).

^ that's pretty good going - 21!

To be truthful, I'd be well up for an extra bit of warm weather and sunshine. Im not mentally prepared for grey days.

Heavy weather to batter Kent today. Hope there is a storm tonight with lightning guys!!

No one would want to be with me during a storm I have to get under the covers and cuddle my pillows and hot water bottle. sometimes I imagine Im dreaming and its all in my imagination....its like the snow when it arrives you think to yourself...is it really snowing outside and you feel such a drop in temperature and then look outside.

I think in Britain we have such a varied seasonal life that you can never get bored with the seasons. I am sure you all have your favourites. I think mine is Spring because it is leading toward summer but then when summer comes it is often a disappointment!

Blankets are becoming useful again.
Windows aren't as open as they once were.
Socks are a good idea.

As soon as I see a slightly golden leaf, it's officially time to rewatch Gilmore Girls.

^ it was weirdly wet of ground and warm of air today.

It's proper windy out there. I've just had a vision of my cat whirling around in the wind in the garden.

We need some rain. It's October now, time to get realistic. History repeats. There should be rain somewhere in the offing. I should move to Ireland.

^ Still yellow weather warnings for heavy rain here (Lake District) and just had a week in western central Scotland (still under a yellow weather warning) of constant rain.

^ they really ought to rename yellow weather warnings because it sounds like they mean piss will be falling from the sky.

Do you experience flooding where you live, greg?

^ Where I live, no. I'm at the top of a hill in Derbyshire, so the potential for flooding is almost non-existent (except through blocked and overflowing drains), although there are a couple of places nearby where fields don't drain properly and it can cause very localised flooding on the road.

The yellow weather warning for Argyll and Bute (where I was staying until yesterday morning) has now been upgraded to amber, with train services suspended and the road on which I left (A83) closed; things can always be worse! It seems the warning for the Lakes has been removed, although heavy rain is still forecast (I've adjusted my itinerary for the day accordingly and tomorrow I'm heading south (into Wales), so I may see some of this heatwave everybody's talking about.

It really was mad. It’s OCTOBER, my car said 25C, everyone was treating it as a summer’s day. 100s of cars passing, music blasting out the window, everyone in t-shirt and shorts.

@greg - enjoy your time in Wales. Sounds like you have to pack for all weathers!

I'm sitting in the garden with my cat and a spider.

Lucky You's sitting in the garden.

Up here it is only 17/18c and it has been raining, normal the north gets usual weather and the media think it's a heatwave because its warm down south. They forget that most of the country is above Watford Gap!

I'm only in Wales for one night - these three days are the link between a week (Monday to Friday) in Scotland and another in the Isle of Wight. As for packing, I have the luxury of driving (and having no passengers), so I have virtually emptied my wardrobe.
