Weather right now is slightly depressing - never know what to wear, it's cold, its dark, its cloudy, and its flippin July! Stopping me from going out for walks cus i know that if i go out i will be wet and cold and my shoes will get saturated with mud!
Instead i am thinking the reasons behind why the weather is so naff again this summer. I reckon its down to global warming, increasing the rate of evaporation from the oceans and increasing the amount of cloud cover, meaning more rain and less sunshine! More like global cooling right now! Another ice age? lol sorry about the rant :P
Meh. The last month and a half have taken as a whole been about as bad as the weather can get at this time of year, and most days have still been pleasently warm by mid-day with at least a couple of hours of sunshine. I've absolutely nothing to complain about.
Yes, unpredictability of weather patterns make planning what to wear utterly eclectic and blow any sense of planning a day out the window as the weather won't allow it. Otherwise, its what us Brits use to bond in our mutual complaining about said weather conditions.

It's not the weather, it's all the things the weather's stopping us doing... I'm spending next week with friends near the coast - I want to go to the beach and have picnics and be outside! Without having to wear my hideous (but effective) raincoat...
haha, yeh right. You go to the beach for sun, not pouring rain and rain macs....terrible
No, mild climate is perfect for me. I really hate hot weather as i don't enjoy sweating and i think there's something unusual about my internal thermostat, so heat= feeling very uncomfortable and generally annoyed. I also enjoy the rain.
Scottish weather sucks too. It's not even proper rain half the time! Drizzle drizzle drizzle drizzle drizzle drizzle. And it's grey. Always, always grey. Which, in a city full of granite, means I'm not sure if I can even see in colour anymore.
As others have said i can live with it pissing it down solidly for days on end its annoying but doesnt affect me much but this bloody bi-polar weather with it being 25 degrees then rain then hot then rain then blowing a gain then bloody hail it makes it a serious pain to dress for -_-
I just wish I can see some sun for the odd days rather then clouds and/or rain.
10 years ago, summer would start May/April time. I remember sitting in shorts and t-shirt in the garden over the Easter week. Even if June and July was wet, we still had a summer. And years before that, heat waves while at school.
We're getting more Indian summers in September which I do like, as it's usually cooler then a normal hot summer.
