IT IS official-summer is over.
The temperature dropped to a cold eight degrees Celsius (46 degrees Fahrenheit) last night, which is the lowest it has been since the spring.
After a very hot spell in April, the country suffered unexpected torrential downpours and gale force winds throughout July and August.
Over the last few weeks, it has been mostly blue skies and sunshine in this region, but according to weather experts, it is now about to change again.
The particularly cool breeze today is down to the north westerly air stream, which is caused by a cold pressure front in place in the west of the British Isles.
Autumn officially starts this Sunday, as it is when the sun crosses the equator, known as the autumnal equinox.

Ken Blowers, The Evening Star weatherman, said: “This is definitely the end of the warm spell. It is the end of the summer. We have not had any appreciable rain for the last 20 days which is very rare.
“The air stream is the reason why it feels a lot colder.
“There was not any frost last night but it is not far off. The weather will now become very changeable and unsettled.”
