Another stunning evening, been a few good NLC shows over the past few nights, might be on again tonight.

Just had to mention this as have just been out to watch the glow of the set sun to the north and was coming back through the garden when I noticed our resident badger has helped himself to one of the early potato plants and scoffed the lot.  Have never witnessed this before Had just told Mrs Northernlights that they would be ready to use in week. Another first for this year, a year that that is turning into a very memorable one not just the weather.  90% of hay  bales under cover and turnips almost all scarified. Currently  13.5c and clear.

A nice sunrise is always a plus:

I'm always a bit sceptical of the ARPEGE as it seems to over-egg everything a bit. However, I've never put this properly to the test. So here's the temp chart for today at 6pm, we just need to come back later and report our local temps compared to this chart. We reached 24C yesterday and we're about 4.5C ahead of the temperature we had reached at the same time yesterday so 27C today might happen (I'm gonna melt):

If the chart you've posted for later in the week is correct that won't be far away from a Scottish record.

Thinking back to this time last year, Edinburgh was under water in it's wettest June on record. Very different story this year.

Settled, sunny and cloudless with steadily improving temps through the weekend. Max of 23.3C yesterday and already 19.6C this morning. Proper scorchio by the looks of things later on this week and continuing dry and settled in the reliable. Some snaps from yesterday evening on the Langside (the hill road to Comrie). Glorious.

What do you use? I've been surprised at how effective Sainsbury's One a Day tablets have been.

Been using generic cetrizine and also loratadine (latter works best early in season, former once the grass pollen gets going).

This is the first year when neither have worked well for whatever reason.  Resorted to also combining the tablet with smearing petrolatum around the front and inside the nose. Kids find it hilarious and the shiny nose looks a bit silly but past caring as it does make a good difference in stopping the worst of the sneezing.

Going to be a hot day here, already up to 20C and unbroken sunshine.  Bit more of a breeze would be nice as the flies are swarming round humans and animals alike, no clegs (yet....).

I never had hay fever until 2010, having just moved back south after 20 years' in the NW Highland countryside. Now, however, it's like an annual plague. What's more, I've no idea what the specific allergen is...?🌾

Cooler day than yesterday locally as an onshore breeze has pegged the temperature back to 19c. Still, under bright sunny skies there’s nothing to complain about!

23C here at the moment, plenty warm enough for me. Also suffering unusually badly with hay-fever the last few days, at a time of year when normally the worst is over for me.

I see possible 29c for Glasgow this week. If we reach 30c I think that might be a first in my lifetime.

Aye it doesn’t happen often anywhere in Scotland. Last time for Glasgow (Airport) was from memory June 1995 (quite a year for temperature extremes!). I remember it well living and working in Glasgow at the time, the hot spell ended with cracking thunderstorms.

All time record is, I think, 31.2c (1975) at Glasgow Airport.

The Scottish record is 32.9C at Greycrook in 2003. I don’t think that is in danger this week but you never know.

Here we got 25.1 C as a max today beating the previous high by 0.1C before the breeze freshened from the SE in the afternoon. It was noticeably cooler the further Into town I went this afternoon with more of a breeze nearer the sea.

Okay, if the airport reached 30 in 1995 then it won't be a first in my lifetime! Still doesn't happen often as you say, so it really is a stand out forecast. Think 30c is now being predicted on Thurs although that will likely change.

Weird how all day it's been fairly breezy but as soon as night falls the wind drops completely. Another dry day but not the clear blue skies of yesterday pretty hot though
