We are now 5 days away from meteorological Autumn, and therefore just within the reliable timeframe in terms of accurate weather forecasting. Time, I think, for an Autumn-related thread.
So what are your preferences/hopecasts for the coming season?
There are tentative signs of a traditional early September warm spell, which will be nice and a welcome change after the chilly August that we've had.
Beyond that, I'd like to see the warm weather continue until the end of the month. A bit of windy weather might be nice towards the end but not to the extent of last year's winter. I'd also hope for any colder weather to hold out until we're into winter proper, instead of it being wasted early on (as it was in 2010).
