  1. We have had to endure some of the hottest temps in the UK here , a full week of temps near to or above 30c, yet the storms still wont come near ,they are all in the south , or east , yet again , peeved , but happy for those storm lovers who got their fix
  2. Ah thats better , all the windows open to let in the cooler air and let that stuffy heat leak away , just peeved we didnt get any storms as a reward for enduring the heat , but what else can you expect in the storm starved NW?
  3. still 23c here grrrrr although thats not to bad , we seem to have been a microclimate of heat here
  4. same here , but its more of a slow painful process that a sudden cool off
  5. Not the big cooldown as forecast damn , at least no horrific heat forecast going forward from here but I suspect Saturday will still be very warm , its now outstayed its welcome , still cant cool the house down , at least next week looks better to rid the house of this disgusting heat
  6. To say I am galled is an understatement, a full week of enduring temps at around 30c everyday here which has been hell... and not even a whiff of a thunderstorm , and non in the forecasts, apart from the usual places (yawn) Central parts of NW England have had some of the hottest conditions in the UK in this spell , but the storms just stay away , apart from a short lived isolated storm over Manchester yesterday . just not good enough , Today has been a little less hot , but Saturday now looks dry with temps still at 26c , so you can add on a degree or two to that 😡 ,
  7. still 26c outside here at 22.30, no breeze and the bedroom is like a sauna . wigan is currently one of the warmest spots in the uk , even london is only 22c , what the hell is going on ? the temps are very reluctant to fall , god this getting tedious , another night where sleep will be hard to come by , hate this now
  8. thermometer peaked at 31c , today was another day of purgatory at work 😩 in this stifling heat , not convinced tomorrow will feel any better , forecast is for only 26c but I think thats another underestimation as they have been all week , saturday will be the main cooling , If we dont get any thunder after enduring this draining heat I will be livid ,
  9. I normally like fine summer weather followed by thunderstorms , like we used to get in the 80's and 90's , but this spell has been just horrific heat here , and storms are not even a cert anymore . 30c plus all week . hard to sleep , and even harder to work , get about 2,00pm in the afternoon and its purgatory loose interest in doing more work , roll on Saturday
  10. I used to get excited over up and coming hot sunny spells. especially when the tstorms were forecast as the spell went on , I dread hot spells now , really disrupts my sleep , going to work on no or little sleep in heat is torture . Dont get me wrong I haven't turned into a proper cold fan , I hate prolonged icy spells in winter for different reasons , but I can cope with it better , Still like the storms heat can bring though , but even them are pot luck these days . I like 20c to 23 c in summer and 7c to 12c for winter , I suppose that makes me a mildy 😅😅. This heat is not
  11. I lot of people will suddenly have to islolate this week no doubt.... hmmmm
  12. 29c a lot hotter than forecast, dont like it, the bbc forecasts seem to underestimate the temps really dont like heat anymore , how you change when you get older 😄
  13. Just a day of light messy rain here , thunderstorms ? what thunderstorms
  14. No thunder here yesterday , I dont normally go chasing storms , always feel like its a wild goose chase to me ,,,but watching all that frenzied lighting activity on the radar was obvious it was going to cross the M62 around the huddersfield halifax area , so a choice ,,,watch england or have a very good chance of seeing a decent storm at dusk , no brainer , off in the car and timed it perfect , quiet roads too, The drive through one of the intense rain cores was scary on motorway, pulled off near Huddersfield and watched a bit of lighting and heard some deep explosive sounding thund
  15. This overcast grey stratus, clagg and moderate rain dross seems to be lingering longer than the forecast implied , when does the sunny spells and heavy cumulonimbus stuff move in ?
