Collect it out of the suicide pits on the underground 😂

underground will be like a depeche mode concert; funny smell and a lot of depressed people.

Scotland and 30c? doesn't go hand in hand..

tell that to the ECM. has the 15c 850 all the way to them.

The underground certainly will be awful in the heat, I’ll give you that one. Gets well above 40c down there on hot days, it’s vile.

Well the MAD thread has sunk to a new low. Some begging for conditions topping '76. The lunatics really are running the asylum as the saying goes.

depends on their circumstances, they must have air conditioning at home, work, everywhere, then you can enjoy heat outside with beer etc, then be cooler inside

Who was begging for it? Just people excited about some potentially unusual synoptics. No different to wishing for -20 uppers in winter surely?

And where will have mid 20s? Even scotland could touch 30 going from the ECM. GFS shows overnight temps in some locales at 19c at 2 am...

If you don't call that uncomfortable then you must have asbestos skin.

19C at 2am is absolutely nothing though - during the worst heatwaves you'd be looking at that as the 5am temperature with low-mid 20s at 2am. In some places like London you'd even be looking at a full 24 hours above 20C.

It can get too warm indoors at night but that's easily remedied for me by opening a window and sleeping with a light duvet or blanket. Not the end of the world at all - and again you take the good with the bad. Same with low 20s temps - very pleasant during the day but you'll probably need a light jacket in the evening and you can forget about al fresco dining without a heater or something.

And they can do all of that in the low-mid 20s I'd have thought. All the while the rest of us aren't dripping like a pot roast.

Yeah, so? No offence buddy but why should people change their preferences to suit you? If you don't like it then it's tough, the weather does what it wants and I and most other people will be making the most of it whether you're dropping like a pot roast or not.

Must admit i'm not a big fan of the heat either which luckily we don't get much of up here 😂 20-25 is ok but when it starts getting into the high 20s or high teens at night that just becomes uncomfortable.Add to that the fact that leaving your window open does nothing when there's no breeze plus you just end up with unwanted wildlife in the house.20 is ideal for me, 30+ for weeks at a time would be my version of hell.

It was like that when I lived in California - weeks on end of temps into the high 30s and occasionally low 40s. Clear sky every day with no cloud at all. Never even got a thunderstorm, in fact not a drop of rain between June and October. It got tedious to say the least.

Thats very true. I always remember going on holiday in cyprus when  was younger. They get dry and sunny weather all year round (bar a very brief period where rain is possible in the "winter"). A local said that he'd change his weather for ours any day of the week.

Not at all. Same basic problem.

lol now the CFS is centre stage. Only days after they were rubbishing it and calling out Crewecold for buying into it. Well despite that, the latest charts are as follows:

http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/people/wwang/cfsv2fcst/htmls/euT2me3Mon.html

Not exactly screaming heat. Just goes to show how useless it is.

Still not much chance of a beasterly in the winter if its right 😂

I agree that the CFS isn’t exactly something I’d put money on!

Pretty sure most people work mate.. nothing unusual about that. I travel to work every morning on a train that gets hot and stuffy even in the low 20s with sunshine but that doesn't make me a heat heater. 

I get what your saying,my circumstances are different though. Work involves 40c plus temps in 100% humidity,cooling down is vital,hence the higher the temp the more we suffer.🙁

Sat 30th will be the day the hot spell ends, too bad for heat fans on a saturday, there isn't one,although this one getting better with temps around 21°, 30th though I predict vile with a howling NW'ly

You are not Chris Alder from UKWeatherworld? 

SO much poor? that is just pessimistic exaggeration. If it were SO much poor then cast you mind back to say late June 2007 or early June 2012 and transpose those conditions to now. In reality, it is mostly dry, maybe a lot of cloud and not a lot of breeze. 

So let's put a realistic stamp on it. It ain't gales, very cool and soaking wet.....

Yeah, I was a little disappointed in cloud (knew it was possible), but yesterday had a bit more sun and reached 24.0C. An extreme example but to put that into perspective, that's warmer than every single day in June 2012.

Just checked Bournemouth, Monday reached 23.0C and yesterday 23.5C, with 5.3 and 6.4 hours of sun. not too poor.
Only 1 day in June 2012 was warmer there, or even topped 21C!

Why would anyone want to live anywhere else? The UK is great, you get about as much variance in weather here as anywhere on the planet! Predictably unpredictable, just how we like it!

To be fair we have about the mildest winters, coolest summers, and lowest sunshine hours for anywhere at our latitude (excluding Ireland) and are often frustratingly close to better conditions on the continent.
Also apart from our 'sunshine and showers' stuff I feel us being unusually changeable is possibly a myth, certainly temperature wise. We can go long periods with little more than bits of light rain, cloud and some sun. 

Nevertheless I'd prefer to live here than many arid climates e.g. California, possibly the med, and our narrow temp range for the latitude is in just about the right place for it to be possible to get snow with summers that are just about warm enough.

Well the ECM once more absolutely stunning!! The good news is the 00z GFS was a significant cool and wet outlier after day 10 with a substantial cluster including control run extending the heat well into July. Top stuff again!

Yikes....that's for thursday! You'd assume Friday & Saturday would also follow suit with the uppers & pressure profile. Flaming June indeed. Falling nicely around the equinox for maximum solar input!

This is all true, but the constant 'what if' of the UK weather makes it so exciting! The fact we are constantly searching for the next big weather event makes us all weather mad I reckon.

I agree, what would be fun in living in California? Great for the sunshine of course, but you pretty much know every year for about 4-6 months it's guaranteed to be bone dry and sunny. What would the model watching be like? Anyway, despite London having the reputation as being shocking for wind and rain, it's much drier than New York etc.

Never understood the flaming June thing. It’s usually the poor relation of July and August. Last time it was warmer than those two months was 1970!

That's because the original meaning isn't weather related.

2 or 3 day spells of this is pretty typical in most summers but to get an extended period is much rarer. In fact I can only think of 4 summers to do so since the 00’s such as 2003, 2006, 2013, 2018 maybe? Exceptional stuff with the remarkable model agreement at a textbook time
