Still miles better than the misery of summers like 2007.

and it's not nearly as bad as what draztik is saying anyway.

So sad what this heatwave is doing to the country. Causing misery day after day; wildfires, parched land, crops ruined and reservoirs drying up - and looking at the EPS this is set to continue and intensify as we head into August. Horrific news for those that love the British countryside when it’s at its most stunning - instead of being a wasteland on fire. A sign of things to come. Sad. 

Slightly dramatic?

You mean that summer where thousands of homes were ruined by filthy floodwater? Yeah, not quite as miserable.

Seen it all before. The countryside recovers quickly. 

Ive worked outdoors for 45 years. Dry summers were quite common. Its largely because we havnt had one for 15 years that it seems so bad.

Most farmers are tennants. They dont get the subsidies, the wealthy land owners like dyson and the queen do.

Thanks Mushy from a tenant farmer still practising a seven course rotation of three years cereals one year roots (turnips) and three years grass for grazing and silage/hay..

A lot of weather related problems on farms just now stem from intensive farming of crops (monoculture) or livestock (Mega dairies of over a 1000 cows). The lack of mixed farming runs down soil fertility in the persuit of short term gain mainly due to very low commodity prices.

This  will all change this autumn as  food price rises will exercise the minds of politicians more than Brexit (Just my opinion) The reason for this is ainof  is not only happening here but also in a lot of the main food producing areas of the northern hemisphere.

An interesting one for me is how long the supermarkets will manage to keep prices low as most commodities are on contract now unlike 1976 when most were free market and prices rose sharply on diminished supplies. Contracts  for farmers are good in oversupplied years as they guarantee a minimum price but not in years like this

 

Our growth stages are now running one month ahead as all plants race to produce seed for the next year to ensure survival.and a lot of plants have had their quota of sunshine and feel autumn is here.

On the point of subsidies we do get them but they are factored into our rents and so the landlord gets a proportion.

Slightly melodramatic? What about the tourist industry? Those going on road trips, camping, trekking, hill walking, etc? Those going to the beach, swimming in the sea or rivers? I doubt that they’re miserable. They certainly would be if it was cold and wet! I bet you that the countryside will have complete ‘recovered’ in a few months.

I don't know if it will have recovered in a few months...wouldn't at all be surprised to see this blocking going into early October or so, but I suppose with the cooler mornings the condensation will aid shoots of recovery.

Raining again in Lancashire. 

Hopefully the trough can pull a little further West and allow us all to get in on the heat ☹️

Totally agree. How people can want 37C sticky heat is beyond me. It’s just not enjoyable.

Because it is notable for our climate. Each to their own :)

Is that at your place of work? If so then the working conditions seriously need improving!

These are the conditions set by law. No ventilation,no aircon. CQC rules have to be followed for decontamination. Weather like this just makes things appalling. Health is suffering.

Thanks for getting back to me on that one - I was genuinely interested in finding out! :) That's pretty rough for you given present conditions. At least it looks fresher for a time this weekend and first half of next week.

you realise youre displaying a high degree of ignorance here :) no disrespect like, but just because you dont like it doesnt mean those of us that do are 'wrong'. some of us DO like heat, real heat. bring it on i say.

Indeed. I’m not a fan of cool wet weather, but that doesn’t mean I think those that do are wrong. I just disagree.

Because we are weather enthusiasts so appreciate the extremes. I wouldn't want 37C every day, no way, but I would love to experience it just once here. Would be a memorable day for sure.

It's warm but there are no heatwave conditions here, normal for not everywhere to be affected of course.

But it is a little annoying that because it's hot for a few days somewhere, to the media/BBC etc that often means it's hot for everyone. Even the local SW news yesterday started with 'on the hottest day of the year' 🤦‍♀️ 

I see the cooler incursions are upgrading though, and increasingly looking like rain again at the weekend for me. But don't worry the heat never leaves because it might still reach 25C in Kent.

I'd better hope the GEM and UKMO are wrong to have any hope of me finishing with a mean maxima of 25C this July! Even GFS has 18C and rain on Sunday...
I'm sure these are far more unsettled than the charts some were saying were 'wrong/too unsettled' etc.. although GFS has still been labelled wrong tonight despite GEM/UKMO looking more unsettled.
The trend from day 10 is nice but it's often wrong at that range, and many GFS runs that do bring the heat only give a 1-3 day plume.
Just adding this for a bit of balance.

First decent summer in ages ,and all your hear from the press is don’t go outside ,it’s too hot etc..

Really,well I’ve been out enjoying every day ,of this hot weather,is that ok ,or will people be banned from going outside because it’s deemed too hot.This is the U.K. so don’t put it past the government to come out with that statement soon😮

20% chance of getting the UK's hottest temp on record this Friday let's see how the models go over the next few days

We need 38.6c or higher to break the record
