    I know these get posted at times, but I'm not sure they're any more reliable than cannon fodder. A flip from below average to a much warmer than average December from the last run to the current run. I guess though you could keep looking at them each day and see how many more cold vs warm anomalies are forecast on them?

    They are only cannon fodder when showing above average ??

    That cloud shouldn't last long at all, its the left over from the decayed showers that came up from the channel, will go back to clear skies soon enough (like 15-20 mins I'd guess based on what happened here, I can see it trundle off to the north of here still.

    Trouble is there looks like another area of cloud not far behind this one. Still the cloud seems to be staying West of London for now. So still good for E.Anglia

    Yep still heading upwards, nearly reached the hottest day of the year already at just 11am!

    Still looks like a 39C will be recorded to me, might be some high level cloud moving into W.London around 1-2pm but its not going to last long and I don't think its going to make much of a long term dent in the temperatures. 

    Even if cloud scuppers Heathrow's chance, Cambridge is currently neck and neck, so hopefully any cloud would hold off longer there.

    It's always been accurate for me. 36.1c may well have been accurate yesterday, but if it's unofficial it's not counted, doesn't mean it's not accurate. This is the big problem with these official stations. There are many 'unofficial' ones that are just as accurate and often surpass the official ones. 

    I have had personal experience with the Faversham station, it is accurate. It recorded the maximum in 2003 after all. It is probably the hottest spot in the UK. 

    I could understand half a degree c, even maybe 1c above the highest official recording, but nearly 2 half degrees c is a bit suspicious imo.

    Indeed. And it just shows how high tomorrow might get. 

    I don't want to get carried away here, but Faversham is now at 34.3c with 2.5/3 hours of warming left. There is a chance we can beat the July record today if there is adequate sunshine. Only another 2.3c required. 

    I don't want to burst your bubble but the accuracy of that Faversham weather station is questionable. It shows a recorded high yesterday of 36.1c. 

    If it's not an official meto site it's not worth the paper it is written on I am afraid.
