Some impressive temperatures being reported today, guys. I see Glasgow came in at 27c.

Lovely day in NE Fife. Temps suppressed because of the easterly breeze but 21c was very pleasant.

Haar may be a greater threat tomorrow but here's hoping for more of the same.

Ditto here but a little warmer. Topped 23C with a nice breeze. Felt much more pleasant than yesterday despite similar maxes.

well that was a warm day today at least we can get the warmth seen as the storms just didn't happen lol

 

STIRLING : 26.0c

POLMONT : 27.0c

FALKIRK : 28.3c

 

that's how the weather stations I check saw it today.

 

thankfully I went to the beach at aberdour so wasn't too bad down there and a bit cooler could see the haar over in Edinburgh though it didn't look like they had all that great a day didn't look like it cleared till after 4 o'clock.

 

I think we need to badger the met office to put an official station in Falkirk as it always seems to be a bit hotter here than the surrounding areas.

Absolutely fantastic summers day with a maximum of 27c - which is about as hot as it gets here, not as comfortable as a pleasant 20-25c but more pleasant than anything closer to or above 30c. This looks like being possibly the best week of what has been a pretty decent but not particularly special summer

It's a cool start to the day today in Kelso. There was thick fog at two o'clock this morning, which has now lifted to low cloud. It's going to be a slow burner today but once the sun gets through it'll be another cracking day.

 

I haven't been following the models for a few days, but I have managed to catch a look at the ECM 00z as it comes out this morning. From what I've seen there seem to be big changes between yesterday's 12z and today's 00z. In my opinion this morning's 00z better reflects the 8-10 day charts with high pressure in charge in the later parts of the run.

Cracking start to the day, very sunny already. Making it hard to sleep any longer than this though

Judging by what Glasgow reported and why that station at Falkirk reported according to BUS then my themometer wouldn't have been too wrong. Certainly pushing 28c if not heading for 29c - themometer said 28.9c as a peak.

Good chance somewhere could officially scrape 28, 29 or even that magical 30?...

BBC weatherman seemed confident of Scotland recording its hottest day of the year so far "again" today. I'm chuffed to bits for the Commonwealth Games that the weather is going to be cracking at least for the start of it. Regardless of what people say (and ignoring the fact that I am an ardent republican) the games are a big event and it will be very good for the profile of Glasgow.

Don't know how accurate my Pug 206 is, but the temp readout was 27c yesterday. My t-shirt tan is looking great now.

 

Temp reading sounds plausible :)

 

Do you look like you've been put together from two different people as well? My arms, face and neck are a deep brown colour while the rest of me is what can only be described as a pale shade of blue.

Morning all,

Haar has lifted to low cloud but I suspect today may be the worst day of the week when it comes to shifting the North Sea murk. Certainly the Met Office is far more bullish about it burning off tomorrow. If we see the sun here today that's a bonus. Still a great week to have off work!

I've very similar views to Catch re the Commonwealth Games - great worldwide exposure for my home town and the sunshine will just make it.

Be very interesting to see some of the readings today...will SW Saltire crack 30c? I don't think any official stations will quite manage that but you never know.

The only problem is everyone is being encouraged to take the train but the points/signals stop working at around 25c so the trains end up cancelled... like last night! Hope that doesn't spoil it. Anyway much the same weather Here, fog has lifted to low cloud and just waiting on it burning off for another "taps aff" day :) Edited by Ross B

Already is 'taps aff' today... Nah not yet, a pleasant 19.5c.

I did notice (can't remember what site) that the much talked about humidity really adds adds to it.

What I mean is Athens 50% Seville 43% Moscow 44%

Whereas, London 78% (it even has my small village to the west of Dumfries where I live outside of) at 82% humidity and a 27c prediction.

Even the met office are predicting 26c...

I'm sure there is many people with a 'farmers tan'... I'm too pale to tan properly :( a different shade of White seems to be it for me...

Caught  a piece on one of the Bavarian TV stations about Glasgow Games, The Ryder Cup and its expected boost for tourism in Schottland as they call it. Must say looked impressive and the weather not bad at the moment. Thankfully, no mention of politics or that Rod Stewart is performing tonight ! Good luck with the games and the weather, hope it gives the country a boost.

May I just point out that it's 25'C in Derry already! 

 

Perfect alignment of the wind has meant that a low bank of cloud has reached here - currently overcast and feeling chilly (!) at 16'C, seems to be burning away as I type though.

I suspect that there will inevitably be some politics involved in the games, which are essentially a political creatures in themselves! I suspect, however, that such political moments will be in line with the what has been an almost universally mature debate thus far.

At 11:30 the bbc weather report said that NW Wales was already at 26c!!!

Already very warm, can't see any cloud whatsoever, totally clear and sunny since first light. The minimum of 16.7c is fairly high of a clear night. The met were forecasting a 17c 'low' for Dumfries last night but I'm rural so pretty warm for me and for sleeping in.

Glad I live in an fairly old cold house at times like these. In December 2010, not so much....

Currently, 22.8c. A breeze has started which is pleasant but it's becoming very warm

Finally, we have some sun. I give it fifteen minutes until someone who lives locally to me posts on Facebook that it's too hot :D

Already I have seen 3 such posts, people are never happy...Just hit 25c... Plenty time for 5c more :)

Unfortunately this really stubborn bank of low cloud which has stretched well into the Great Glen is refusing to budge, some 10'C difference between Inverness and Aviemore with less than 30 miles between us, wild!

Looking at the satellite images the haar/low cloud is very close to clearing from here. Fingers crossed we see some sun this afternoon.

16c.
