  1. So close to a tropical night here; overnight low 19.7°C! Still, that's a new record highest for daily records going back to 1973. Like with the maximums, a rural environment and to some extent proximity to the Channel (about 17 miles away) tends to prevent absurdly warm nights. Largely cloudy so far today, yet 22°C and slowly edging upward. A sharp clearance from the southeast looks to be imminent. Temperatures have already jumped up in response to this over Portsmouth way - 24°C there as of 9 am. Seems a high 20s maximum is achievable unless there's rapid convective develo
  2. Noticed an uptick in temp predictions for tomorrow from ECM and GFS - now high 20s in a good few spots. Cloud amounts corrected downward based on today’s observations.
  3. New annual max today, 33.5*C, just 0.1 shy of 10th Aug 2003 but 0.8 short of 3rd & 4th Aug 1990. Still mid-20s now. Thin high outflow cloud overhead. Humid - RH in the 70s % having risen sharply after a surprisingly low dip this afternoon, into the 40s (felt amazing!). MCS from France fizzling away from eastern end - standard behaviour. Might be yet another dry day this month - only seen 1.2 mm to date! Very parched out there with trees wilting and dropping some leaves.
  4. Wind’s picked up at long last - but it’s mainly easterly, so hot! Speaking of easterly, over that way I can see a huge cell erupting over Basingstoke!
  5. Still clear here and I can report that the solar noon sun genuinely has a string to it. Impressive for nearly two months past summer solstice! 32*C and hardly any wind will tend to have that effect 🥵.
  6. Calm air and several degrees warmer to start with than yesterday. Feels like a fine summer’s afternoon already. Makes me wonder how high today could go, if it stayed clear until at least 4 pm.
  7. Highest max since 10th Aug 2003 here, was 33.6*C that day, 33.4*C today. Still nearly 24*C as I type this, with no wind. The stillness makes it feel all the more strange out there. RH creeping up toward the 60s %.
  8. Impressive peak there, just 0.4*C shy of the highest recorded temp I’m aware of for these parts! Still not much wind and what there is mainly come from Southampton way where it’s near 33*C, so time, perhaps, for further climbs in the next hour? 🤔
  9. First stirrings of a breeze here, the sun has felt searing in the lack of wind and a temp in the low 30s since noon. Now approaching 32*C. I see Bournemouth hasn’t yet been cooled by the sea breeze so I might have another hour or two of heating to go. Just a little cloud visible to the south - could develop further though, so an uncertainty there.
  10. @Dorsetbred I mean BiG... ha. I should have been clearer - low risk % of really big thunderstorms. A ‘loaded gun’ day but with the trigger very stiff, going to take a lot of force to fire it. Specifically, a 2 m temp of at least 32*C and a bit of near surface wind convergence. Impossible to reliably predict where that will happen today - can only keep a watch on things and wonder!
  11. So, here we go again... warm start after a sultry night. No wind at all here, feels surprisingly hot in the sun for 8:18 on a mid-August morning. Local max could be anywhere in the 30-35*C range according to model forecasts. All very dependent on how much cloud cover occurs, be that imported or homegrown. Including the big localised thunderstorm risk.
  12. I was wondering if that was even real until I saw this - no rain at all here! Sky didn’t look like much was going on either. Using a sensor on my bike, good bit of variation even with all the clue around now, about a 2*C temp change between the Avon valley centre and the sides. Enjoying the cooler mid-20s and absent solar heating of the house - should be a less oppressive night ahead 👍🏼.
  13. ...he writes before checking to the south and then the satellite imagery! Some cloud and high-based showers approaching, similar to what interfered with proceedings on Friday. Later this time, though, so less of a max temp suppressor.
  14. Intermittent sea breeze I expect. Been seeing that here for the past hour or so - hot northeasterly interchanging with fresher southerly. Temp jiggling about, jumped to 30.3*C at one point but mainly staying in the 29s like you’ve been seeing. Sea breeze usually relaxes a bit late afternoon, will be interesting to see if the cyclonic circulation can push back and send temps up again. To be honest I’d rather it didn’t though - could do with a cooler night even if only slightly, as the sea breeze looks less effective in the modelling for tomorrow and Wednesday. Cloud amounts depending, they
  15. Feeling quite hot here but bearable provided you don’t move around much. Watching for any sign of the sea breeze - currently still seeing an easterly but it’s become lighter and more intermittent in the past hour.
