  1. Gorgeous day, hit 24.1c in the sunshine about 2pm. Felt humid. Now cloudy and cooler with the wind picking up. Been a much warmer few weeks which has been welcome.
  2. Crazy storms seen in the last couple days, great photos and vids on here. The last very very warm day, max of 29c (at my unofficial temp gauge) and humidity making that feel intense. Was not comfortable to wear uniform for work in. Tomorrow more like the low 20s, perhaps mid 20s at work in the far SW. The sun is certainly lower in the sky these days
  3. Currently 27c here, getting uncomfortable. Muggy. Tomorrow may go 1/2c higher still
  4. Yeah I jinxed it. My power is off and the lightning has arrived albeit a fair distance away for now
  5. Those storms look to be dying a death when I ‘animate’ it on the netweather radar but we shall see
  6. Could be a direct hit down here later on. I love storms but sadly the animals do not so bit of a double edged sword. Very muggy today, already approaching 22c
  7. Vile, so so wet (nearest station is at 33mm in last 36 hours) Nightshift this evening and confirm it feels very autumnal. Looks like it’ll relax midweek and hopefully we move into a warmer pattern thereafter
  8. Cracking photos of the lightning posted above. Too far to my West but saw on social media it was some show, a couple photos from Kirkcudbright:
  9. Wind his picked up here. My nearest weather station was 28.0c at 1300. Touch and go...
  10. As others have said, roasting! nearest weather station, Threave, at midday (15 miles West) reported 27.2c Carlisle was at 27.8c at the same time. V good chance we will get 30c, perhaps even fairly widespread. As much as it’s nice, not great to work in and I prefer 22-25c. Shame it’s to be 15c on Sunday!! One extreme to the other
  11. 25.3c here the max today. Very warm to work in. Met office are forecasting 29c tomorrow (usually an underestimate), sadly I will have to leave about 1pm for work but I’d think we’ll be there or thereabouts to 30c down here. Hopefully it goes with a bang, shame it will be so fleeting re photo - Grass getting long in the ‘hay’ field looking South, over that hill would be the coast if you could see past criffel
  12. Better day than anticipated here, a very pleasant 21c with occasional bouts of hot sunshine. Muggy (as always!) I’m driving up to SE Glasgow later so look well positioned for any storms that may come in. Nothing in Dumfries as yet but can see on the radar the heavy stuff is just across the Solway...
  13. Yeah can see and hear it but tracking slightly too far to the North but looks like somewhere Lockerbie/Moffat area will have had/be getting a soaking
  14. Monster storm here between 5pm and 6pm. Frequent lightning and thunder which caused panic to the dogs. Torrential rain I was trying to get a nap in pre-nightshift so not the best, never recorded any of it. Lovely day before and after it at a 23.5c max with sunshine
  15. Frequent lightning near work (Newton Stewart) with loud thunder getting ever louder. Hailstones in the mix too. 20c When I left my house about 13:40 was 23.4c, bright and very muggy.
