  1. It didn't even reach 30c in August 1981. I can't call it 'hot' unless it is 30c or warmer.
  2. September can easily be warmer than June in most of the UK. There's barely 1c difference in average highs here (21c in June, 20c in September).
  3. Meteociel had Heathrow at 35.5c at 1700, so the high could even be 36c+
  4. Southsea beach has a record high of 35.0c, so I think other parts of the city should be able to record higher.
  5. Plenty of large CIDPs, chamaerops and trachys in London.
  6. Average summer highs in London for 81-10 are 21.0c, 23.5c, 23.2c. I've been calculating the 91-20 averages and for June and July they are 21.6c and 23.9c respectively. August will be either 23.4c or 23.5c, depending on how this month ends up. A normal summer in London will have 4 or 5 days of 30c+, 30 days above 25c.
  7. Most summer days are not 19-21c. Maybe half of June is like that.
  8. Average highs are warmer at Kew throughout the year. Lows there are some of the coolest in London though. That must mean that Kew is warmer than Heathrow on cool or average days. Closing all of the weather stations that routinely recorded warmer highs than Heathrow probably has something to do with it, as well.
  9. They are average max temps, and Kew usually has warmer days than Heathrow. Kew has a frost hollow effect, and has some of the lowest average minima in London. Heathrow minima are also cooler than most of London. If the Met Office hadn't shut down weather stations at Greenwich, Camden, LWC and Gravesend, Heathrow wouldn't be claiming all of the temperature records. The PWS in Whitton closely matches Heathrow temperatures.
  10. That sounds about right, central London has much milder nights than Heathrow due to the UHI. There is often a noticeable difference in temperature in the evenings between central London, and getting off the tube in say Hounslow.
  11. I am correct, for London at least. Consecutive 32.2c/90F days (total 32.2c/90F days for the summer). 1976: 6 (10) 1990: 4 (5) 2003: 3 (6) 2006: 3 (6) 2013: 1 (2) 2018: 1 (3) 2019: 3 (7)
  12. July 2020 July 1991-2020 average
  13. Nothing compared to this. The current weekly forecast only compares to August 2003 or June/July 1976.
  14. London looks like it will have its hottest week since 2003, though it'll be a tall order to match the 1976 spell of 16 consecutive days at 31c+.
