That sounds perfect.   I love fine summer weather, but not extreme heat where you cant go out, can do anything and cant sleep at night.   A couple of fine weeks with temps 25-28c max would be lovely.  

That's exactly what we had for most of July and people like markyo were still complaining about it being too warm, though I agree that most people would be perfectly happy with such conditions, especially if it's with low humidity as was the case in late June and most of July (except the final 10 or so days when it became more humid).

In any case, be careful what you wish for - the way the model output is slowly deteriorating, at this rate I wouldn't be surprised if August ends up a cool, wet, dull month, which would certainly benefit nobody.

let's ramp up, the not as hot as expected party !!

just over 24 hours ago, the Met O 7 day, had me down for 27 / 28 at the weekend

it's now 22 / 24 at the weekend

much better in terms of comfort, the tourist's still have something to enjoy, but we can all still sleep at night

i don't understand those, who want 'oven' conditions 24/7 in a country where homes do not have A/C

I certainly don't moan it's cold when it's 10C. I never moaned once it was too cold during the cold spell in March. Cold doesn't bother me. 

Of course, if it was 10C during the day in July then yes I probably would, but that's virtually impossible anyway.

I've had 11c here in July 2012

We had a max below 10C in June 2012! But as far as I'm aware we've never come close to being that cold in July, or August. 

June 2012 was the worst month ever.

I've had 8c in June typo meant July ,think Irish sea SSTs where poor in 2012 hence low temps

Of Portugal 

Luckily I am more near the coast but temperatures still near to 40c here cannot wait

No northerly on tonight's ECM, no furnace heat either. Warmest in the south.

Most of the forecast I have seen are suggesting temperatures of 33-35c for the next 2 weeks which suits me fine

Some geographical confusion it would seem, the ECM has the highest temps in the south, not w Yorkshire.

I'm currently in a village 350m asl not far from Nerja in andalusia.  In an old trad house, shutters, ceiling fans etc. It's been very hot but as nothing for some of Iberia over the next few days.  We're borderline East andalusia so may escape the real fierce heat.  Who knows.  Anyway here's the translation of the Spanish met warning.  Not the sort of thing we see at home in UK even in the semi continental weather in the SE:

1.- Meteorological phenomenon: Heat wave
2.- Geographical scope: Great part of the Peninsula
3.- Beginning of the situation: Wednesday, August 1
4.- Duration: At least until Monday 6
5.- Degree of probability: Very high (more than 80%)
6.- Description of the meteorological situation: As of Wednesday, August 1, due to the
conditions of atmospheric stability in a large part of the country, to the strong insolation
these dates and the entry of warm air of African origin from the south in half
Western Peninsula, will take place the first summer heat wave, which will last at least until
on Monday 6.
The episode will be especially intense and lasting in the southwest quadrant, the area
center and the Ebro valley, exceeding 40ºC, from Wednesday in a good part of the interior
of the southwest quadrant and, starting on Thursday, in points of the central zone and Ebro valley.
Thursday and Friday, could even reach 44ºC in the valleys of the Tagus, Guadiana and
Guadalquivir.
In the northern and southern interior of Galicia, the 36ºC will be exceeded in large areas of
from Thursday, being able to reach 39ºC / 41ºC.
In the rest of the country it is likely that they will reach or exceed 35ºC as of Friday and
Saturday, affecting areas where these temperatures are unusual such as the interior of the
Cantabrian area and the Catalan coast. On the contrary, this episode of heat will not be significant
on the coast of eastern Andalusia, Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla.
The minimum temperatures will also be significantly high in large areas, above
everything, in the southwest quadrant, where they could not go below 25ºC from Thursday. In the rest
they will stay above 20ºC, except in mountain areas.
Although there is a high level of uncertainty, it is possible that starting on Monday 6 a
Slow and progressive decrease in temperatures.

maybe it's different for other parts of the country

the mini-heatwave is currently a 2 day affair for me. Sunday and Monday, where it may just scrape into the mid 20's C

only those 2 days show the wind from E or NE

on Tuesday, the Westerly wind is back - Atlantic influence, and the temperature is fresher again

couple days ago, the same chart was showing 27c for Saturday, it's now 21c with a NW wind

the 7 day forecast chart on the front of the Met Office website

when i change the location to London - yep, it does show heatwave conditions there, but not here

Just seen the forecast for the next 10 days for London. My thoughts go out to the many who dislike heat,high 20's into low 30's for most of the time with resultant high night temps. After the 2 months they've just endured this must be the last thing those folk who suffer with the heat would want. It must be so uncomfortable.☹️ and for some dangerous.

And when it does, you'll still be in here, moaning about past and future heat. Hopefully, that will end sometime soon?!

Despite northerners claiming southerners are ‘soft’, most are not miserable whingers and they’ll cope perfectly well with the return to warmth and sunshine, being able to enjoy many outdoor pursuits once again. After all, it is summer. It won’t last forever!
