    Are you in a bungalow? A bungalow should be cooler than a regular house, in theory. I lived in a bungalow 3 years ago and it definitely was cooler than previous properties. Am in a first floor maisonette currently and it’s lovely, no heat build up as the moves through nicely. 

    I am indeed, thanks to disability.

    Is your bungalow very hot at night?

    Been a few times Hokkaido mostly in snow 

    Actually, I would love to visit Japan, whatever the weather. 

    Not that I think the opportunity will arise. Too auld, now, and what with doggie and mundane responsibilities.

    Ageing is a "B", however I don't intend to grow old (er) gracefully.

    I think that, if I ever go to Japan, it'll be for watching the northward advance of the cherry blossom...By all accounts, something of a spectacle??

    The highest ever temperature recorded in the uk is 38.5 according to the met office.  With the heat being this intense and for such a long time, I reckon this could be broken.

    Regarding the prospect of records being broken it's unlikely from this plume. Although the dry ground does increase lapse rates one has to bear in mind that the flow is relatively cyclonic with pressure values sub-1015mb and uppers below 20C. If we squeeze out a 35/36C we've done well (not that i want such heat).

    If you look at the last two times we had proper spells that then broke the records then we have 3rd August 1990 (37.1C) and 10th August 2003 (38.5C).

    Aug 03 had uppers of 20/21C and pressure around 1018mb..

    Aug 90 had uppers of only 17C but pressure around 1023mb..

    Looks like the Met have called this correct(same for several days) with their models and others, in that if your looking for very hot conditions the south east is the place to be, outside of this small area, then no.

    As they say though, such conditions are possible not guaranteed.

    Going to be a nightmare next week,will have to cancel a number of calls in the South east due to the heat tripping kit out,that is for certain. Those poor staff who work at those sites,they have had enough. No ventilation,no aircon. Appalling working conditions.

    Still looking like 33/34 on the cards for SE this week. But the models can’t agree on Thu / Fri yet. Still expecting the secondary low to be less of a feature. And to be further west. The 06z was a small step in that direction.

    I think next week is a perfect setup in a long time which will potentially get temperatures close or above the record temperature, this is down to many factors as mentioned above such as the dry ground.

    Yep getting a bit tired of this now considering May was a very warm month on top of June and July, would like a change in August to be honest but I think it will just be more of the same. See Japan suffering from a big heat wave, is there anywhere in the northern hemisphere not well above average?

    Iceland isn't doing too well this summer more rainy days than dry days temps in the mid-teens at best

    Thats the only thing missing so far. For what has been a remarkable summer so far, the max temp of 33c is not that special

    Average high in Reykjavik in July is 14.2C so mid teens is decent for them.

    Thanks!

    Todays same time GFS12Z peaks the heat on Thursday, still warm to v warm(mostly south and east)into the weekend.

    After that a  lull, then la la land strikes again, 850s go through the roof for 2 days, then crash through the floor to finish below the long term mean.

    People keep showing the GFS, but the parallel is just getting ridiculous. Yes that is the 24c isotherm almost touching the south coast.

    I think new GIFs may be needed by some.....

    Is there a temperature map for that, like the ones that get posted for the normal GFS?  Would be fun viewing. I had a quick look but couldn't find one
