  1. GEM would most certainly bring in nationwide spell of heat if it came off. Been a long time since Manchester touched 32C in August....
  2. Gravesend on bbc app showing 39C probably the highest the bbc have used for a UK location
  3. I cant believe these are the temperatures that the windows 10 weather app are forecasting for Manchester over the coming days - awfully poor predictions.
  4. Blimey, GFS 6z joins last nights ECM 12 and turns on the blowtorch full force. Night time minimums next Thursday morning in London don't drop below 27C all night and yet still very warm elsewhere. By Friday morning its about 25C over much of the UK at 3am!!! Very dangerous levels of heat for the daytime with increased levels of humidity so will be uncomfortable. Definitely echos of August 2003 next week on the 6z.
  5. Well if this particular GFS 12z is right it would have places like Birmingham and Manchester locked into several days of 33/34C if you can add on 3C. Its like a balmy blowtorch from start of next week lasting well into week two. This is like a heat lovers dream for this very synoptic pattern to occur in late July. Some local records would most definitely go, would also challenge the all time night low of 24C in Brighton aswell.
  6. There is too much flip flopping in the runs with an Atlantic trough at moment for any potential heat. One model run its mid 30s blowtorch and the next its low to mid 20s. It wont be until at least this weekend until more is nailed down thats for sure. But if I had to take a bet my money would be on all the heat being shifted up towards Netherlands and just skimming the SE just like its done on many occasions in the Summer.
  7. Its St. Swithins day tomorrow , And funnily enough the models show the rain coming this week aswell!!! Lets hope this week doesn't turn into 40 days and nights of rain, troughing and low pressure Just a classic example of a typical summer pattern that set up in mid July and becoming the pattern that determined August.
  8. GFS looks to be trending away from a heatwave in the last week of July with ensembles trending much cooler than shown 3 days ago. EC seems to be going the opposite way and trending towards hotter conditions. 00z Control run has a hot S/SE flow into the UK at end of July with blocking over N Europe.
  9. It will feel like July 2013 if the GFS 12z happens. 850s of 20C in the SE, France in the mid 40C again.. Probably just a hot outlier.
  10. This ongoing N/S split is so boring. . No sign of anything in the mid 20s for Manchester yet in the foreseeable. Only one day so far this Summer has seen 25C or above and which was last Saturday. Now compare this year to last year...
  11. Is it even possible to have strong Greeny Blocking and heatwaves/High Pressure over us at the same time? If so give me some examples of years? I always thought Greenies were a summer lovers worst enemy.
  12. The week just gone will quickly become a blip and distant memory if the 6z comes off. No sign of any extreme heatwave coming anytime soon either.. Definately could be a curtain closer on Summer 2019 if it came off.
  13. GFS 6z has another burst of continental heat next weekend, but lets not hold our breath just watch the North sea get involved lol
  14. We all feel the same. Totally betrayed and let down by our own useless weather. Whats even worse is seeing it on the News how France has smashed their heat record while UK gets sod all.
