  1. Understandable. I also can’t remember many holidays or trips abroad that have felt as humid as recently. Only Miami and Rio de Janeiro which is unsurprising.
  2. Looks like Bristol had a tropical night last night. Not much below 21C. Dipped slightly below here to 19.3C but already up to 26C.
  3. Another lovely morning having breakfast outside early on. A tad warmer than this time yesterday but I think it’ll be a tall order to beat June’s maximum.

  5. I think you've misunderstood my post on a number of levels. 1 - This weather is uncommon in this country, even the SE. 2 - I have experienced the more unpleasant hot nights having lived in London before, as well as Madrid, the LATTER where it is not uncommon to still be 28C at this time. 3 - I recommend you live in Madrid before guessing what the weather is like. It's chilly in winter for Spain, but most days in winter are over 10C, often nearly 15C, and minima totally depends on urban versus rural environment. It hardly ever goes below freezing in Madrid itself but frequently goes down to -10C in the mountains. 4 - Madrid also doesn't typically have air conditioning, contrary to what people think. The only places it does that are not like this country, are the likes of public transport. Houses do not typically have it installed as, outside of summer, there's no need for it. I think many people assume everywhere is like the coastal holiday destinations.
  6. May do, may not do. Let's not forget that this time last week, much of the country including the southeast had single figure minima quite widespread...
  7. I've lived in greater London before so am aware, as well as Madrid where this is not uncommon.
  8. Given how little of the summer this type of weather occupies, it's still not of high enough concern for new builds to be completely changed. As you've pointed out, air con is not environmentally friendly either. I think we need to calm down - this hygrowave we're in hasn't even lasted a week yet.
  9. 30.5C the maximum for here today so a little up on Saturday's maximum. Surprisingly pleasant out there tonight too, not that oppressive. Perhaps some fireworks for our region tomorrow.
  10. Having lived in Spain, I can confirm that most houses do not have pools and/or air conditioning. Expensive new builds and non residential buildings often do but it’s up to the individual.
  11. Just realised I’ve recorded my highest ever DP today, breaking the previous high in June 2017. 22.2C!
