  1. Interestingly 1989 had a SSW in February too and that’s the best overall May to August bar 1959 maybe 1976
  2. If these conditions continued to the end of August it would be the summeriest May to August and the best summer bar 1976. Can it continue another 9 weeks? 2006 had a great June and July but lost out because of August and it 2003 July the same problem and 2013 similar in different periods. Wheras 1989 and 1995 will be harder to beat with smaller periods of unsettled conditions. What a summer though!
  3. In 1976 temperatures exceeded 32c on a 15 day run with 5 days at 35c I’m getting a little nervous with the latest model runs. Pleased I don’t live in the south
  4. I think what’s remarkable here is the perfect position of the high pressure. In 1995 it was just too far west until a few days in. 1976 though was perfection and we might even match it for 1 week. Can we make it 2 like it did back then? This year has been a year to remember!
  5. The models this morning are giving the impression of the best last third of June since 1976. Outstanding charts this morning again with 22c-30c across the board easily from sunday. Edit: 35c somewhere from ECM on friday
  6. Well from the runs tonight I wouldn’t be surprised some areas seeing the maximum break in terms of sunshine at 135hoursish between tomorrow and the end of the month. Incredible stuff! Brings back memories from 2013
  7. 2 or 3 day spells of this is pretty typical in most summers but to get an extended period is much rarer. In fact I can only think of 4 summers to do so since the 00’s such as 2003, 2006, 2013, 2018 maybe? Exceptional stuff with the remarkable model agreement at a textbook time
  8. Once again the model consensus is for another extreme event of 2018 with a June heatwave with bags and absolutely bags of sunshine in the last 7 days days. All models once again with mediterranian style weather. Ukmo has a bullseye high
  9. What a fantastic year of model watching this has been! Hope the ECM is on the money
  11. The best summers do see the trademark of high pressure in the last third of June with dry the dominant feature of the month
  12. West Wales is racing ahead with sunshine at 100hours whereas some parts of the east have had a third of the value to the 10th
  13. I think notable thing will be how dry this June has been looking ahead. Many of the best summers had dry junes
