+1 I love the warmth, But i hate it when it's accompanied by rain and wind. Too warm to wear a jacket and too rainy too leave it off.

That mild wind is a lovely breadth of fresh air. They used to send Chernobyl kids here for the air, we should be proud of our mild humanitarian weather!

How anyone can like this mild muck we're having at the moment is beyond me. I've a feeling we're going to have this crap weather for the next few weeks.

Very mild and dry today despite it being very cloudy; even milder tomorrow they say.

14.6 this afternoon; hasn't dropped below 11c last 24 hours.

We had much colder and wetter days last July!

The young sycamore's are in leaf - mid Feb - that's a record.

Better than crappy snow!! If you don't like it, perhaps emigrate to a cold country? Ireland has only had a minority of snow covered winters in her history, what did you expect?

Anyway, i've saved a packet on heating bills and today is tshirt weather, tis great!

Should I try to cheer everyone up with my (admittedly bone generated) prediction that I will see a second 1976 this summer....and that I might have to start the drought thread in April.

Go for it! In fact the drought has already started...so it needs a thread.

Hasn't started where I am Bill so I couldn't possibly start a drought thread at this time.

Mild is good, gets you ready for the extremes. Come on March heat wave, 'dew can do it'

It only got to 15 C at Liverpool yesterday, and it was 11 C at Knock around 5 pm. Windchill may have been 5 though

Well, we got 3.4mm rain this morning so maybe it has stopped here

But, seriously Sponge, was there ever a drought where you are?
