Hmm, tbh I'm a bit lost... Nothing to grumble about today or tomorrow:)

But normal service looks like resuming on Wednesday...

I'd take those temps over mine any day of the week.

Just a thought, if we can reach 30C or more until Thursday would that be the longest run of 30C days since August 2003?

Met Office just tweeted: "This hot spell is set to be the first time for over 20 years that somewhere in the UK has reached over 30 °C for 5 consecutive days in June"

Will be interesting to see how details are firmed up for later this week into the weekend, whatever happens this has been a memorable hot spell.

Sorry to be a hypocrite, I rarely post in here as I've little to add, but do you have links to any charts or models to expand on your last 2 posts, or interpretations to make them relevant to this thread? Thanks

Six days of 30°C or more will be memorable as far as extremes are concerned. Bear In mind its still Astronomical spring

The 1st post was in response to a chart. And where was the chart for the comment my 2nd post was directed to, hmm?

The Bristol area could be scorching on Wednesday recording breaking heat not too far off 100F either

Hi everyone. Just thought I'd throw a quick question out there if I may.

With the Arpege model predicting high temps in my area (Bristol) for the next couple of days, I was wondering if there was an official weather station in urban Bristol? Filton is the closest one that I'm aware of but it's annoying central Bristol doesn't seem to have one and all the other major cities have.

 

Thanks in advance!

oh yes i forgot, we are still officially in spring! :rofl: well someone better tell the models that because its certainly summer now!

interesting about the first time since '95 we have had 5 consecutive days of 30c, it bodes well for the rest of summer (unless you dont like heat).

It's gone seriously crackers, 33s in all kinds of weird places like Exeter and Liverpool!

There's a 10C difference between GFS and ARGEPE for some spots. Normally I'd back the ARGEPE every day of the week but this does seem a little nuts!!

does it? not necessarily, read on here from people JH etc, that June's weather has absolutely no effect on rest of summer

For those of a nervous disposition.....the dartboard low at 240 has now appeared on the 6z and 12z. Needs watching!

It really depends on how far south the cooler air reaches tomorrow and how intense the plume is when it reaches us.

arpegeeur-1-48.png?12

Arpege has the 20C isotherm pushing into south west England with the 16C isotherm covering central/southern England, that would normally give 32/33C but we will be coming in off the back of several hot days so a real chance of pushing the mid-thirties, possibly quite widely. So is the arpege correct on the level of heat?

GFS

gfs-1-48.png?12

Pretty much two degrees lower, it give a high of 30C over London, actually when you think about it, that could translate to something like 34C given the model's tendency to underestimate temperature.

So UKMO/GEM

UW48-7.GIF?19-18   gem-1-48.png?12

UKMO not so progressive with the heat but a similar idea, the GEM is a little further east but gets the 20C isotherm into the south and the 18C line covering southern England.

I would go for something around the 34C mark, but I wouldn't rule out something higher like the arpege suggests. Very uncertain though on this I must add.

GFSOPUK12_51_2.png

A very interesting chart for Wednesday afternoon, could be some very high temperatures all the way up to NW England- these uppers aren't far off what was being shown for Thursday a couple of days ago when everyone got very excited. 30C+ could well be possible anywhere south of that 15C isotherm line I imagine.

Certainly for Wednesday the highest temperatures look like being in western England, particularly the Bristol area but there could be some local June records broken further north as well.

ECM close to ARPEGE for Wednesday

ECU0-48.GIF?19-0arpegeuk-16-48-0.png?19-18

For the weekend, most want to whip the low across the north except ... the GFS. You know my moto: "Never discount the GFS!!"

UW120-21.GIF?19-18  gfs-0-120.png?12

Am I allowed to say that, if it was February, the GFS would be the clear favourite?? ;)

well its not a hard fast rule, thats true, but most times we have a hot spell or two in june  its because the long wave pattern is likely to repeat. i havnt the data, but out of memory i can remember very few summers with 'early' hot spells are the only ones we get... 1970 and 1978 are two. 76, 95, 03, 06 are top of my head examples of those that do go on to produce further hot spells. so id suggest more heat is more likely then no more heat.

It might not take long for high pressure to rebuild as long as pressure remains low up north we have a good chance anything unsettled will just be a blip
