Costs a lot more to keep warm in winter than it does to keep cool in summer. I think you forget that most people don't dislike heat as much as you do - you're the abnormal one I'm afraid.

I said it was easier to get warm,never mentioned the cost did i? Expelling heat is a lot harder than creating it. Trust me i know from years of working in my industry. I'm not abnormal,take offence to that. That is your opinion,in my opinion folk who crave heat and wish to sit out in it are not normal,but i would never say that,everybody to their own. Live and let live is my motto.

I totally agree, most normal people dislike extreme heat. Some people just have issues and can't seem to tolerate other peoples preferences....that's not normal in my view. :)

I don't think it is even as simple as that, most would dislike going to work on public transport and working with poor air conditioning systems, on the other hand I suspect most would love to set up a chair of some sort in their garden and relax in the sun and heat or of course go to the beach or the park.

I am not looking forward to working in my lab where I have equipment which runs at 1200C with the air conditioning in dire need of replacing as it stands. It was 34C in there on Wednesday so probably getting close to 100F or higher next week. Still the evenings in the garden will be worth it. :)

If we do end up with an extended heat wave, then it is only going to cement 2018 as being a very interesting year weather wise, in fact it could quite easily top 2013 which also had a big switch from cold to hot.

This is something that is oft repeated and would just like to make it plain, yet again, that I do not, nor ever have had an issue with peoples preferences. But i do have an issue when they misuse these preferences, not only to the determent of the thread by posting a load of insensitive drivel such as earlier in the year, but more to the point, they treat anybody who dares to challenge this ethos as pariahs and idiots as if only they have a divine right to an opinion

What awesome charts being pumped out for next week, bring on the heat, hoping for some cracking storms at some point too, all the storms that were about down here in the south a few weeks back all missed this location.

with all the talk about how high the temperatures will be, there is a lack of talk about humidity values

25c with low humidity, probably feels more pleasant than 19c with high humidity

how it feels... but that night time minimum of 16c next Friday, is a worrying trend

if people dont like heat, why do so many of us chose to holiday in the heat?... ive never heard of people holidaying in a frozen place simply to 'enjoy' the cold! (they go for winter sports, not for the cold per-se)

I don't know, Mushy - isn't huddling behind a windbreak, whilst wearing three layers of waterproof clothing, an integral part of the great British holiday experience? 🌬️

Despite the usual moaning, from the usual suspects, the next few weeks' weather looks like being nothing short of superb: just as with much of the 1976 and 1995 heatwaves, very warm or hot days will mostly be offset by relatively cool, fresh nights...?

IMO, those horribly humid 20C+ night-time minima of the past few years will be staying away, at least for the time-being...and even then, given that the late Spring/early Summer weather has been generally warmer this year anyway, we all ought to be somewhat more acclimatised to what's to come than is often the case?

Anywho, with the unfortunate exception of those, like Markyo, who'll have to endure really unpleasant conditions whilst working, I can't see a single thing to moan about.

Och well!:yahoo:

Why do folk, when the weather they crave for is occuring and looking to last at least 3-4 maybe 5 days do they show charts that predict this not being there beyond day 6?

Beats me, other than some folk should get outside after turning their pc/laptop/mobile off.

Similar in the winter as well. 

They seem unaware that we live in a Disturbed Maritime climate, which is a bit odd for folk living in this country.

hey ho, it takes all sorts.

models look good, my favourite summer weather is 25ish degrees and sunny, so pleased the real heat is downgraded, everyone on this forum should like sunny and 25 degrees?

only thing is the easterly breeze, to the prone locations like here could be affected by north sea mist

Love it! Love it! Love it!

Looking at Meto outlooks just now it seems we're in for a warm, and at times, hot few weeks. Add in May's weather and most of June and we'll be heading for a '76-type record breaker come end of Summer😎

Not at all but I was thinking of the times people have said to me, "get real, this is a weather enthusiasts forum" after I had disagreed with a post, or posts. This of course infers that I'm not a weather enthusiast which I find both arrogant and insulting.

25 degrees and sunny is perfect - a lot of us wanted hotter simply because it's interesting, though I don't mind either way as heat doesn't bother me.

Ay, it would be interesting for a record, but models last few runs trending wrong way for us, notable easterly breeze, meaning north sea mist

Greed. They want to see how long it will last and if it is not enough, the whinge begins.

I also think some people suffer from two dimensional thinking. Not every weather type is the same. Yet they keep coming back with the same idea.

4-5 days does not a summer make. If we get repeating patterns like that throughout July and August then great. Otherwise, people are well entitled to be disappointed.

Thankfully in the UK repeated patterns over 2 to 3 months are very rare.(i'd hate to be stuck in the up coming weather for the next 2 months,but that is personal). The last i can remember is winter 2013/14. Not nice at all.

The CET for this month is currently 15.8C, it will probably be the driest summer month since August 1995 for England and Wales and looks like being sunnier than average.

You talk as if this we have not had a decent spell of weather until now and it looks like just a 5 day wonder when infact the weather has been pretty benign since the start of May.

The only remarkable aspect of this month has been the dryness, otherwise temperatures in this part of the world are similar to last June.

It's been a perfectly pleasant month of course - I'm not implying that it's been bad - but if we get 5 days of warmth of heat and then that's it for the rest of the summer then people will definitely be disappointed. Not saying that will happen but given the way summers have been in recent years it wouldn't be surprising. There have been many false dawns.

Must admit spring and summer up to now has been pretty decent with small interludes of poor weather ,if this continues through rest of the summer and early autumn I'll be happy.

What would make a 'summer' for you, Cheese - 766 consecutive days with temps above 38C?🔥☺️

A summer where at least July and August are warmer, sunnier and drier than average. If June ends up being the best this summer has to offer then it will go down as a bad one.
