Yup GFS forecasting 32C for next weekend and ECM 35C, could be a real scorcher of a week coming up.

You could easily add 2 or 3c on GFS given its tendency to underestimate

We could be really close to the all-time June record

2006 came pretty close, just didn’t find a way to persist and the setup got totalled by the Atlantic coming back in. 

Yes it was a pity about the August that year.

Regarding ECM 850 temperatures - they are by and large not representing warm air advection but rather more dry air subsidence under the anticyclone - therefore the lapse rate is reduced and the surface temperatures are not as high as estimated (-see the ECM charts on weather.us as evidence - very warm or even hot but temperatures not widely into the 30s never mind record range)

Anything between 22 and 28 will do.

It's important to mention that the ECM temperatures on weather.us are usually down as much as 3C on actuals - today a good case in point, most places already 1-2C up on the predicted maximums, with two hours of heating still to go. I think this morning's ECM, if verified of course, would mean 5 days at 30C or a bit above in places.

True that, but you can still add at least a couple of degrees to those for typical error adjustment, which puts quite a few near or at 30 (in fact most of England at the weekend - and Sunday already has some 30s in place... but that’s because we do see a draw of heat at that time).

If it wasn’t for the very dry ground I’d side more with mid-high 20s tops prior to any hot air imports.

 

Ha, MWB has just beat me to it. Kudos! :p

Good points made - you do feel that we will exceed 30c though If those charts come off, advection or subsidence....it’s damn hot! I also don’t see anything like 35c appearing, but we will see....a slight switch to a more southerly feed after 5 days of heat could deliver something.

Anyone-else ever wonder whether one or two of the more, shall we say, least-realistic of the models ought be ordered to take 'early retirement'?

Not shure about this but does soil moisture content and recent months of soil transpiration affect surface temperatures ,dry soil hotter weather ??

Yes it does, that's what (IIRC) what caused us to have the record temps and heat (and in France) in 2003.

Are we allowed to poo-poo what the charts are showing, completely ignore them, then comment about how none of it will happen, how the charts are rubbish, and that the polar opposite will happen?

 

Or is that only during winter?

 

Anyways, roll on the summer. Been lovely down here the past few weeks.

Long may it continue. Beautiful.

Excellent use of the word “polar”

Probably worth pointing this out, yesterday the UKMO was probably the best output for those who wanted the highest temperatures.

Well to show how far things have come over 24 hours, here is todays day 5 chart which is for Wednesday compared with yesterdays day 6 chart.

UW120-21.GIF?22-17   UW144-21.GIF

That modelling of the cold pool to our east has shifted towards something much weaker and as a result the ridge through the UK is stronger. The result lighter and more variable winds and probably higher temperatures as the heat to our south is allowed to build northwards without much resistance.

And at 144 many locations will be sailing through the 30 degree mark surely

Hints in the models of a return to more of an Atlantic coming 2nd week of July. Hopefully just a blip. We'll see.

Why are you looking out that far? Jeez. We have enough uncertainty out to Friday 29th or Saturday 30th June. Never mind the second week of July! Enjoy it whilst we have it.
