  1. Beautiful this evening and what patterns
  2. Can fully understand this. We had a couple of, what can best be described as showers this evening and that was it. Yet again, baked for weeks but the Chilterns Storm Shield held fast and sweet FA occurred On the plus side, it does now feel cooler outside and I’m looking forward to proper rain on Sunday (fingers crossed)!
  3. At this stage I'd just be happy of some rain ....... T-Storms would be a bonus but rain would be fine as it has been weeks.
  4. I got that wrong, its actually the hottest June day for 41 years and the hottest summer solstice day on record!!
  5. It looks as though LHR has now recorded 34oC making it the hottest summer solstice day for 41 years
  6. Its getting way to much now!! Seems o be the way around here tho, a breeding ground for the immense heating and unfortunately not a lot of action as a reward :-/
  7. Temperature has rocketed to 29oC and ~55%RH in the last hour or so. Sky has been hazy all day but the sun is shining, again! ........ melting!!
  8. Yuk!! Sounds a really nice place to be ...... not! I gave up on heat many years ago. This type of weather always gave rise to field fires and I have to say, I dreaded field fires more than anything else! Due to appliances being burnt on previous occasions, we were not allowed to drive onto unburnt areas. So middle of the day, in this type of weather, full PPE including helmets and no hose-reels ...... our firefighting equipment was literally poles with old hose attached and the beating began! Way too hot!!!! Though doing that job did show how destructive lightning can be. We attended quite a few lightning strikes but the one that I recall the most was a shout to a tree on fire in the middle of nowhere. When we booked in attendance, there was less than half a tree left, split about 5ft from the ground and on fire!! Still praying for a storm tho :-)
