      Hi Daniel,

      Yes, just down the road from you in Lee at the southern end of Lewisham Borough. We had to have 2 Fans, yes TWO, trying to cool our Bedroom down. It wasn't until that weak cold front moved through that it felt a bit more comfortable, about 3 AM or so. Had to come downstairs at 11 PM and sit under our lounge Fans (2), for a while. So pleased to see a cooler spell of weather ahead for a week or so. Really hope July doesn't turn out like last year, as I ended up in Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup, with heat exhaustion.

      Hi tom,

      Yes I couldn’t sleep until around 3 it was utterly horrid today was much more manageable nice w’ly breeze, them uncomfortable nights are seen every summer never look forward to them. And while you’re not far from me, with my closer proximity to central London UHI is even more intense.. it makes you long for cold cosy winter nights. One young girl I assisted on street I suspect she came down with heatstroke, she was in a right state poor thing. 

  4. Nothing so far can beat feb warm spell that was truly exceptional...

  5. Almost halfway through year and not a single storm weird going ons

    1. cheeky_monkey


      had no storms here either yet..which is unheard of by the middle of June

  6. When it rains it pours quite literally 

  7. Thundersnow in Central London ! 

  8. Winter where did you go? Only had two dusting which settled on grass very poor effort. Not snowless which isn’t that uncommon, but close enough.

      winter spent the season at my house this year..now the bar steward wont leave

      Expecting to see a cooler and wetter spring the joys of U.K. climate 2018 was an anomaly but I’m sure things are becoming less changeable and more boring... yep I follow someone from Saskatoon some very cold temperatures this winter a rise to -20c is a “warm up”.

  9. Keep getting an error problem @ MOD

    1. LimoPreacherman


      The question is how much snow do you reckon we'll get!

    2. Mokidugway


      Can't wait for my January  holiday 😎

    3. Daniel*


      I’m not suggesting it’s going to be a long cold hard winter  by this status rather all shenanigans that goes on🙂 

  14. This recent weather proves why I detest this month ever dwindling daylight and mild. Wake me up when it’s over!

      My fave Novs are when they crisp and dry like 1993 and 2016 and my worst Novs are mild and Atlantic driven like 2009 and 2015.  Nov 2018 so far is in the middle ground but I've got a bad feeling the Atlantic mush is going to win out. The thing that I really like about Nov is getting ready for Christmas.

      I quite liked last year's as well but 2015 is definitely first prize for disgusting! At least 2009 wasn't as sickeningly mild and had a lot of convective weather and thunder, at least down here.

    4. Dami


      My birthday is this month, how dare thee! 

  15. Proper pea souper out there! 

  16. You see this rarely at this time of year temperature crept up 21.3C 2130 see 22C at London City Airport! Warm night.

  17. Beluga whale spotted in Thames.. never thought they’d be this south.

  18. If it weren’t for May this year would have been completely lifeless very weird despite waves of heat/humidity which followed.

      I think it's been one of the most interesting weather years I can ever remember, but yeah for thunderstorms it's been dreadful.

    3. Daniel*


      Yes, 2013 was last memorable/interesting one for me.

    4. karyo


      No thunderstorms at all here this summer. Worst summer for thunder since I moved to the UK 21 years ago!

  19. Terrible tragedy in Genoa.

  20. Always catches you off nights quickly drawing in now.

      Yes, I have noticed this in the past week.  I find that when the sky is cloudier, it gets dark earlier.  It seems like autumn is coming early this year.

  21. Lovely summers day nice and cool and some much needed moisture. 

  22. No doubt it’s been a hot summer observed fourteen days above 30C another two expected - but channel has proved a barrier all summer for big extreme heat. 

    1. Dami


      how are you since your fall? phone sorted?

    2. Daniel*


      Still in a bad shape poor knee :sorry: and phone not yet.. it’s been a very bad week. 

    3. Dami


      oh dear :( hope knee is better soon.

  23. Hoorah sixty days with no rain has come to an end, torrential rain and noisy with it! Never got so excited at rain. And before you know it it’s over..

  24. I can't for the life of me see where met office think there's a chance of all time high.

      July record is surely under threat? All time less likely, but who knows?

    3. Daniel*


      July possibly is, from a MO meteorologist & was posted elsewhere even on national tv.


      @Yarny thicknesses & uppers aren’t high enough! 

    4. Nick L

      Nick L

      Definitely can't rule out 100F. I'm reasonably confident the July record will go.

  25. After this summer even average winter temperatures are going to feel cold.

    1. lassie23


      the beast will be a regular this winter

    2. Seasonality


      ^The beast from the west you mean?
