Bearable temperatures today,good clear skies ment the yorkshire countryside looked at its best. Much hotter would just ruin it,high uv,high pollen,high pollution levels  make it very unpleasant . I know many many folk enjoy this time of year but jumping in and out of a 45plus degree car thats been stood is really not good,makes the working day so much harder. Not looking forward to the coming moths at all.

21.5°c at Hampton and Northolt were the last figures at 15:30

This may be our high today

This looks to be today's hot spots I would expect somewhere in the SE to get close to 27c before the weekends out

Still better than having to wear three layers when at the beach or on a walk up the fells etc, i have hay fever too but id still much rather have 22c than 12c.

Certainly each to their own,for me walking in 12c is much more enjoyable than 22c. No way near as tired by the end thanks to the lower temp.

I think most people would agree with you markyo, 12C isn't cold and very pleasant to most people in strong sunshine.

Since when did you become the self-appointed spokesperson for 'most people'?

Then the cold plunge next weekend with a maxes around 10C, with northerly or NW winds for the foreseeable future.  Bit like General Election day in 1997: 4th May hot and sunny, the following Tuesday heavy snowfall.  Typical British climate, couple of days of warmth followed by weeks of cold.

If anything, the fact we're seeing alternating cold and warm spells during the second half of spring is a positive as its reminiscent of previous springs leading onto good summers. Recent years have generally tended to have patterns of continuous homogenous warmth more especially from April onwards which broke down by the time summer started. If the pattern now is different then perhaps it will be in summer too compared to recent years (1995 had alternating cold and warm spells during spring for example).

I agree, as opposed to Springs that had lengthy heatwaves from March - May like 2007/2008/2011/2012 and by the time Summer came the weather became cool and wet. Also the Met Office currently hints at it becoming warmer and more settled once again at the end of the month into June :D

What records are breaking? Is it just that this is the warmest day of the year or are long standing records being broken?

Those things should be banned lol. Can't beat a nice Weber gas BBQ. Use it 3 times a week this time of year, lovely.

So after a warm day today, tonight's min temp should be around 12 or 13c

But then i remembered December 2015, about a week and a half before Christmas

Where the night temperature never dropped below 16c

it was crazy, too uncomfortable to sleep under the duvet

Reminds, what an exceptional warm event that was, that many summer nights will still be cooler than what happened last December

Now bring on the storms !!

Totally agree. I have ten exams at uni this Summer term, and this weather is making my life a bloody nightmare. The warm and muggy weather makes it so much harder to concentrate, and the associated lack of sleep is the last thing I want when I have exams!

Give me a northerly anyday.
