  1. Time to get some much needed perspective Surrey in London area there has only been one day this year with 20mm or over, its been a dry year, certainly this summer not comparable at all to last, but dry theme has lingered through those up north understandable frustration with rain. Some rain here and there is normal.
  2. Had several ‘monsoon’ downpours today but no thundery activity I’ve had the grand total of 1 thunder day this year which is as far as I know unheard of, really strange and interesting how variable it is across the southeast region... close but not close enough. Today or yesterday now, turned out to be notably cool around 3pm the temperature dropped to 15C evaporative cooling at play, and it never really recovered from there, went out in garden topless briefly minutes ago... and for first time in a long while, I noticed a slight chill in the air, autumn must be coming!
  3. A power cut has affected much of South London including all of SE16 the power was off for roughly 20 minutes once in a blue moon occurrence, suppose it’s different for you rural folk, so very unusual in duration and not at all isolated... lower road chaos, so I’m told with traffic lights off glad it’s been fixed. Modern city life ceases without electricity.
  4. Unrelated but same across much of south London and large parts of SE England national grid fault apparently very usual for so long, traffic lights and all chaos...
  5. Down in our ‘second home’ Winchelsea for the week, the sunny south coast never disappoints! Was pretty windy today.. warm enough in sun to not feel cool, but doesn’t really have anything on what’s to come.
  6. Augusts have deteriorated in the last decade maybe a symptom of climate change..
  7. Northerners getting big thunderstorms again *hiss*

      non here in wigan

  8. 28.7C at half 8 in morning and a low of 22.6C warmest night I’ve recorded, seriously hot today. 

  9. I’ve put my pillow case in freezer exceptional circumstances calls for such things... roasting in bedroom 31.6C and outside it’s still 24.5C warmer than this time last night, wonder how high today? Personally I do not see 40c being reached anywhere. Interesting most models are going with areas to north of London like Cambridgeshire being hottest 38-40c, similarly I’m unsure about that... the powerful UHI of London will reign supreme?
  10. 31.2C in shade will comfortably be the hottest day of the year here 0.9 to go.
  11. It’s roasting after a low of 17.1C overnight could prove to be record breaking night Met Office forecasting a low of 23C absolutely awful... house like an oven!
  12. Thursday, Northolt, 37.1C maybe a little far given recent W corrections which lessens heat in SE.
  13. Looks like it will be very hot for a time next week, the highest temperature of year here is 32.0C I’d say very good chance of beating it next week not a fan of heat but I like the stats.. higher more interesting.
  14. Roll on more zonal weather, cloud continue to stream in off the North Sea. No good for us in the east.
