  1. Twas an amazing summer my grandparents from Mauritius were over and even they were saying how hot it was! On another note could Navgem be leading the way?Lol someone mentioned recently that it rightfully forecast the july1st record temp at Heathrow of a few years ago days in advance and stuck to it's guns when all the main models didn't want to know?
  2. Had a very light shower driving from Dartford to Gravesend I'm sure it wasn't forecast I commented on met office tweet too
  3. Was it forecast to be this warm and sunny today? 26c at London city airport apparently
  4. I'm sure I passed that cloud earlier driving on the m25 through Surrey lol
  5. Itv London weather tonight mentioned likely 30c by Monday in the SE
  6. Thanks for the heads up. I started and have ended the day in Gravesend where I live but I was at work through the day mostly around Surrey and Heathrow( twice) earlier and a little drive to the chilterns which was lovely windows down, all the pollen blowing around was a bit of a irritant) but its better than my usual drive into the big smoke of central London that I will be back doing tomorrow. It's funny how it's always the same 3 or 4 locations that record the highest temperatures depending on the wind direction.
  7. Where was warmest today then netweather says Good old Gravesend
  8. BBC going with 28c at Heathrow could we beat last month's 29c? Probably a stretch too far if only it was a southerly or swly then here in Gravesend would no doubt be close to the hottest place maybe a 30c
  9. As a driver was amazing to see the difference between mid Kent earlier with torrential rain flooded roads and a howling cold wind that blew a few trees down and then to get to west London and see it bone dry with not a trace of rain and jist a light breeze!
  10. I live in Gravesend and have been to Heathrow and central London today as a driver I can confirm it felt a lot warmer than the low 20s this afternoon. And tomorrow's meant to be a fair bit hotter still! Although the SE admittedly has naff winters in general I must admit we do ok in summer being pretty sheltered from the Atlantic influences that you northerners know all about. Let's hope we get some warmth for all parts. I remember in the September 2016 heatwave when Gravesend recorded 34c either the arome or arpege did very well with temp predictions I'll be following those models more closely now I think after today
  11. Only because it won't be 26c in Manchester though. Good old SE always the best place from now until autumn
  12. Perfect spring in my opinion beasts and snow aplenty to start March now temps in mid 20s here in the SE in mid April
  13. Beautiful clear blue skies for the first time since I left Mauritius on Tuesday. How depressing has the last few days been. Looking good next week
  14. Out of interest what does the high pressure look like? The pink or blue areas?I'm travelling to Mauritius on Friday in the vast pink section- hoping their unusually wet summer has come to an end! Abnormally warm SSTs have meant an even warmer than average late summer there🌡
  15. Just drove from Gravesend to Borough Green and then to Lewisham. Up to Lee Green def a little sleetyness in the mix though just rain in Gravesend and Lewisham. The M20s highest point it was probably a 30% sleety mix with the rain I would say
