  1. Last day of summer and it is 36c today. Change is coming this week but what a hot month it has been in mainland Europe! 16 days over 30c this month 7 of which were over 35c.

      Well yes I take the point about the continent but Berlin's averages are not too different from London's in summer. If the ever present low to our NW over the past few weeks/months had been further south and west over the Atlantic the heat would have caught the UK too. Seems like bad luck in a lot of ways.

      It definitely is bad luck. 36C is exceptional for Berlin. Can't believe how many freakishly hot days the near continent has had while we haven't had so much as a sniff. It's been absolutely disgusting.

      Yeah quite right, there's more to it than just continental vs island climates, it's the fact that the distances are so minute- it's not as though we are right in the middle of the Atlantic. The SE is very close to being continental
