Joint hottest (with Monday) at 30.7, last time I checked...Tomorrow could go either way:  a lot of cloud, it'll be around 28; bugger-all cloud, it might even reach 34?💦

To all those (including myself) who are moaning about the heat...in 1976 no-one was moaning about it!:D

Of course they were ED, they just more polite about it in those days.

And now, with the internet, moaning isn't limited to the next door neighbour, you can do it to an entire website!

Current observation from the backgarden - Blimey! (32.6 currently)

Indeed, Dami - it was all about croquet-based etiquette back then:

By Jove, old chap, this heat is a being a frightful rotter, isn't it - it's even making one's balls veer to the right all the time, I think? What ho...mustn't grumble? How about a spot of tennis?:D

Wow it’s hot! 

Storms breaking out to the north of us annoyingly. Any convection has now moved away and we appear to be in more stable airmass again. Hopefully something will happen a little later

My mum just may have thought like that, but in 1976 I certainly didn't :D I was too busy putting babies in the paddling pool, filled with water from the kitchen tap lol

30.8C; which, for around here, this close to the coast, is quite something. It's also the hottest day so far this year...............by a staggering 0.1C!:yahoo:

But looking back, aren't those just the best memories we all have? 

Like when I was wondering why my tomatoes never ever seemed to go red (1983)...when my eldest daughter piped up: That was me, Daddy - tomatoes are poisonous when they're red!🍅👌

Back in the 70s, I’m sure we were advised not to jump in the sea! I think a few heart attacks were reported. Certainly gave me a shock when I jumped in the sea at Scratby, Norfolk after a steamy journey in scorching temps and a car with a broken thermostat which was remedied by having the heater on!

I think it's peaked here.  Max temp was 35.0C and it's now down half a degree.  Absolutely stifling outside.

The breeze reminds me of being in Almeria, Spain.  (There’s a breeze but it does nothing to cool. 

What a summer!!!

Sorry for voicing an opinion!  My hatred of heat is exactly why I won't ever up sticks and move somewhere where these types of temperatures are the norm for months on end.

Im with you all the way SR. Ridiculous heat and if you feel like moaning,moan away,theres plenty on here feel the same! About to get on Central Line so god knows how hot its going to be on there.

Surely its only a matter of time before the Atlantic gets its act together and sends us some good old fashioned wild weather. Bliss!!!! Autumn just aroind the corner......

Clear skies looking to take hold across the region: whilst Lincolnshire up to North Yorkshire see some fairly potent showers

Just landed at Heathrow to 35C, wow. Few degrees hotter than Spain, where I’ve just had a short holiday. Could see some beautiful convective clouds on approach.
