A number of them scattered about. Could see on telly from Royal Troon a decent Anvil popping up to the North beyond the other clouds.. I've been watching all possible forecasts to see if we will even get a spell in the warm sector and sadly this isn't going to happen might for a spell behind the Warm Front on Friday but looks likely 24 hours later the cold front will push through bringing today's conditions back..

Best day of the month so far.. Great day for sunshine with fair weather cumulus clouds this afternoon.. This warm front moving in but a hazy few hours there but pleasant evening. Max of 18c today but felt nice in the sun..

Have to agree with you. Lovely afternoon although the high cloud well and truly pushed in. Tomorrow be VERY different

July has been pretty non-descript here so far, as the statistics bear out. Still looking to crack 22c at Leuchars this summer which is quite unusual by mid-July. Got a decent chance of doing so in the coming week with higher uppers coming in, just need some sun to go with it!

After a good May and June, with lots of sunshine and a spell of warmth... Summer left for several weeks. 

Not really wet but showers most days, limited sunshine and cool temps <18c quite often. 

Monday looks 19/20c and humid, Tuesday is the main event with high 20s possible here(v v humid), then low-mid 20s and wet with tropical humidity Wednesday, before the atlantic rolls in.

I'll take it! 

Hopefully high pressure moves in for a bit before the end of this month or at the worst say mid-August and we can at least say this poor spell has been sandwiched by  two good spells.

Well overdue a good August. Abnormaly warm Septembers are nice but the lack of daylight and (therefore) actual warmth outwith 12-2pm is reduced significantly.

I remember in 2005 going to the Caribbean (narrowly avoided a strengthening Catrina sp?) and was 32/33 for the 3 weeks we went. Came back and we were sweating buckets back here as it was mid-twenties but SO humid.

 

Tuesday is (according to the overly cautious met office) forecast to be  26c with a feels like of 28c. That's rank. Lowest the humidity gets is in the 60%s.

Tuesday into Wednesday a 'low' overnight of 19c with a humidity of 89%. Great. 

I enjoy the heat. I like humidity at times. However, such a sudden change is not so good.

I'll not complain as it has been far too chilly this summer for my liking but can't say this short blast of heat will be pleasant.

Seems like tentative signs (longer-term) that we might see conditions improve, even for us lot. 

As ever, the NW do best in May/June, not so much now. They will be last to see an improvement if it even occurs.

Another wet morning in spite of a better looking day forecast on here. Looks as though most of the hay will be made in August as this month turns into a very wet one.Every crop in field and garden is looking for sunshine and neighbours are saying their tomatoes in greenhouses are not ripening. Currently very humid and 18c

Not good NL.

I noticed someone getting a second cut of silage yesterday down nearer the solway firth.

We got part of out field cut and bailed (admittedly for haylage, not hay) about 2 weeks ago. We left the big field until a better dry slot (perhaps wishful thinking) so idk when that will be.

Grass growth has slowed significantly but that is not unusual really as we head away from the May/June peak.

The mid-term forecasted Greenland high is a bit of a worry. That normally spells disaster unless it is sufficiently west -NAO and the trough therefore misses us. The opposite of what i want as sods law will mean the Greenland high will fly away come October and we'll get mild SWlys (cries).

 

Anyway, start of this warm snap.

Humid, warm and cloudy.

21.3c, low 80% humidity.

The kind of day where you do any exercise and you sweat. 

Typical British summer. Either cold or oppressively humid. Ewww (but i'll take the heat over the cold any day of the week)

Managed 25c here in Crail which is easily the warmest day of the year and in fact the warmest day since July 2013. Very rare to see those kind of warm  temps here as the sea breeze usually kicks in and moderates the temp by 11am.

It has rained solidly since Friday. Tomorrow looks like it may be dry(ish) but a chance of more wet stuff later tomorrow. Thunder a possibility too. Terrific summer, eh?

Been in harris since Saturday and concur it's been horizontal rain most of the time with mist and fog coming and going. Tomorrow looks the best day of the week with a chance of thunder mixed in with heavy showers for Wednesday. If only I was here in may!

Had quite a few nasty showers here today although when the sun's been out it's felt warm! A pre-cursor to what's to come tomorrow as the heat and humidity surely has to go bang

Hi guys, up in Aviemore with the family for the week. What a cracking day it is, going to take a trip up the Cairngorms as the skies are very clear. Does anyone know if I have a chance of seeing a thunderstorm later on tonight or is it further south that will see any action? WiFi is not great here so can't see the charts, thanks.

From my view, everything seems to intensify and move north towards you, if not a storm you should at least get a light show at night.

It was good to see and feel the sun earlier today.  Currently the cloud cover is increasing, it is pleasantly warm - 22C with a light breeze.

We are thinking about having a picnic and walk in the Forest of Birse close to our dog's favourite swimming place in the river Feugh.

I think your greatest chance is tomorrow during the day. 

Seems like N.I is most at risk toniggt, some showers in Scotland.

Tomorrow morning greatest risk for my neck of the woods, then up to Glasgow area and beyond. 

Shifting east as the day goes on.

No idea where the greatest risk is, i think the forecast will continue to chop and change.

Just have to hope we get a lightening show!

Currently 22c, gloriously sunny. Fairly humid.
