  2. Much preferred that yellow grass, yellow is my favourite colour and it made for some great photos against the landscapes, moreover it fits the vibe of summer more, after all the grass is always green in the other 9 months and in normal summers. Also for walking in the countryside, dust<mud anyday. Back to boring nothingness from here on out. With that said no complaints about 2018 weather wise, 26th Feb-Last Tuesday was a truly fascinating period of weather.

  5. I was born in 1993, so the only good August's I remember were from my childhood. In recent years the best months have been July (last month down here was superb) and occasionally June/September.
  6. August's are hopeless in this country, summer just seems to give up, even in a legendary summer such as this one. France in August is so much better, 31c in Paris on Thursday.
  7. Don't let nostalgia fool you, a quick look back of the stats from both 1995 and 1976 at London Heathrow & Gatwick Airport showcase that there were about 4 or 5 days in those summers that were sub 18c and raining during the day. This summer particularly because of the fantastic May still sits alongside those two summers at the moment. With that said, I'm really missing being able to be outside like on Monday & Tuesday, now this is only possible with a fleece which is never fun, and you can forget sitting outside when everything is so rain soaked.
  8. Now this is more the kind of rain I like, fast moving sharp showers with a thunder risk, gonna be fun watching these roll through.
  9. Well everyone has their different preferences and we must respect that. However I will never personally consider 30c for a few days with low humidity 'oppressive summer heat' that to me is a perfect summers day, but that is strictly my opinion. Either way this weather today is depressing and a reminder why I usually dislike summers in this country much, predictably no storms like always on Tuesday night but pointless drizzly rain which won't green up the grass much anyway. Looking forward to next week when I can go outside in the evening without being cold and do long hikes in the countryside. Visiting London's parks on Monday was awesome, felt like I was in Madrid with the 32c and yellow grass.
  10. Warmest spot in the country today I believe, although St James Park briefly reached 29C. Haven't experienced any summer like it in the UK, by this point in August even the legendary 2006 was faltering, and that didn't have a good May (apart from one day on the 4th May in 2006) compared to the fantastic May this year. even 1976 had a worse May than this.
  11. Definitely normal for most of Spain (last summer was hotter) but locally Babajoz hit an all time high as well as numerous locations in Portugal.
  12. How's Lisbon Blade? looks like it may have surpassed the 2003 record of 42.5C.
  13. Sagres was 34.6c at 8am! ok that is definately not normal!
