  1. Yeah it’s been a ok summer by northern standards better than 2017 thanks to a decent June and the July heatwave - like you say a summer probably similar to 2010. London & the SE in particular have had a poor summer compared to the norm though - notably Heathrow has had a lot less 25c+ days than they normally get this year high teens - low 20c’s on average at best - when most average summer days in London are usually closer to 23/24c it’s been a cool one. Duller & much wetter than average too. You could say they’ve been treated to a NW style summer!
  2. Interesting parallels this year summer stats wise to Summer 2017 & Summer 2010 - front loaded summers with any ‘real’ warmth occurring before or like this year during mid July. It didn’t help that May was well and truly miserable this year too. We’ll probably scrape an average- slightly below average summer here in the NW but down south have had probably the poorest summer since 2017 - more than likely 2012 in London and the SE compared to normal. We all know what kind of Winters followed those summers too! Winters 2010/11, 12/13 and 17/18 all had their severe cold spells - who can forget December 2010 & the BFTE! Dreaming aside the next week looks like a typical start to early September - dry, mellow and with varying amounts of sunshine ️
  3. Yesterday afternoon was nice got up to 22c here that felt v warm after the last few weeks - but more cloud amounts than forecast for this week will dilute at times what could have been a more sunny, summery feeling week. This morning is really gloomy and miserable a bit October like.
  4. First nice morning weather wise in a long while. Shame it won’t last for the weekend - next week/ into early September looking more settled however. I’m biased I suppose being a September baby and Autumn lover but September can be a beaut of a month especially after poor/ meh summers like this year. Can’t believe we’ll be knocked on the door of meteorological autumn soon!
  5. Interesting to see Spain seeing extreme heat similar to summer 2017 as this summer has felt a bit 2017ish especially the meh kind of UK August so far. Overall thanks to an ok early summer and the July heatwave it will probably come out as an average summer for us here in the NW bar any extremes later this month and a poor, wet summer for those in London & the SE, anywhere Midlands southwards really has seen a not great summer compared to normal.
  6. Definitely beginning to notice the nights drawing in that bit more now. From a tropical 23c at midnight this time last week to a pretty cool and unseasonable spell of wet and windy weather the next 24 hours - SW England namely Cornwall will be catching the worst of it but we won't escape it entirely either. Mixed and at times coolish week next week but signs of a potential gradual warm up (maybe even some heat again) towards mid August with still lets face it plenty of usable warm weather potential right through until October really but increasingly without the sticky humidity and uncomfortable nights mid summer heat often brings - mellow sunny September days around 19-20c by day but followed by lovely cool nights just as the leaves are beginning to turn are my absolute favourite
  7. We have lift off torrential rain, thunder & lightning - first proper storm locally of the summer here in S Cheshire ️⛈
  8. Had an almighty downpour last night. Risk of further downpours & potential thunderstorms today. A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued by @UKWeatherUpdates on Twitter for eastern parts of the region including MCR and the Peak District. Will have to wait and see what develops this afternoon ️ ⛈
  9. Heavy showers moving in now across the south of the region. Nothing thundery here as yet though sadly.
  10. Absolutely we’ve had a good summer so far compared to the South of the country. I fear August may well bring the worst of the summer as per usual in the last 10 years with the exception of last year perhaps but think we’ll still get some warmth mid month.
  11. Cloudy morning followed by some sunshine this afternoon 22c and a light breeze much more comfortable summer weather
  12. Thunder reported in Stoke so you never know ⛈ will keep a track on the radar.
  13. 32c here, 31c (Official) at Hawarden, 30c (Official) at Manchester Airport & Rostherne (Official) in the last hour. Northern Ireland have just beaten their heat record once again at 31.4c in Armagh. Line of storms ⛈ picking up over the Peaks. Bakewell and places nearby seem to have copped them.
  14. 31c now - hottest day of the year so far for me! Can we make it to 32c? I think we can!
  15. Just breached 30c here in S Cheshire feels like temperature at 34c Cheshire/ South Manchester, Manchester City Centre tend to do the best in heatwave setups regionally as they are inland, low ground areas. This spell has been notable as the north of the region and The Lakes have joined properly in on the fun/ heat this time something that can’t always be said in other summer non plume high pressure heatwaves that have benefited the south of the region more.
  16. 26.5c already here in S Cheshire we’ll be pushing 30-31c by mid afternoon for sure. NW England & Northern Ireland the hot spots today. Quite unusual to say that!
  17. Think 29-31c maybe closer to the mark but we’ll see. We’ll be hotter than the SE potentially tomorrow not nice at all with feels like temperatures close to 33-34c thankfully much fresher but remaining warmish into the weekend/ early next week though
  18. 31-32c tomorrow? As hot as last August’s hot spell if it comes to pass
  19. 29c & sunshine sometimes turning a touch hazy much of the day here in S Cheshire. Feels like temperatures the hottest of this spell so far 32-33c with increased humidity. Looking likely to reach 30c tomorrow, a warm but more pleasant day Friday 24/25c before much fresher weather with some rain moves in weekend onwards.Sadly not looking great on the storms front for us but boy weren’t we spoilt with storms last year. June & the August hot spell breakdown served up some fantastic storms from memory. My thoughts are for a fresher start to August before more settled and warmer conditions arrive mid month but we shall see. ⛈
  20. Reached an unofficial 30c here in S Cheshire this afternoon so the hottest day of the year locally! Rostherne, Knutsford (my nearest MO station) recorded 28c as their high. Another hot two days to come with 30-31c potential again then a breakdown of sorts by the weekend and turning thankfully that bit fresher particularly at night.
  21. Some pics of Summer in South Cheshire Suburbia loving this weather just wish it was a bit cooler at night
  22. Another hot one here in S Cheshire today more humid however with some cloud cover early this afternoon reaching a hot & humid 28c. Midweek still looks to be the peak of the heat 30/31c potential is there for Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside Wednesday/ Thursday. 26-28c quite widely elsewhere. Quite a notable heatwave by NW standards but not exceptional or as prolonged as recent hot summers.
  23. Reached 29c here again today. Indoor temperature also hotting up so nights will be uncomfortable. Thinking 31c could be reached in the next couple of days in the south of the region - Wednesday or Thursday maybe?
  24. 29c - Sunny S Cheshire checking in. Hottest day of the summer so far
  25. It’s been an ok summer so far for NW standards especially after such a miserable cold May. Not as hot and definitely not as dry as the summers of 2013/2018 though at this point in the summer. It’s nice we’re getting a heatwave to coincide with high summer however
