Oh and for what it's worth, this will be added to the guidelines shortly..  

Feels so Autumnal today, loving the change from June and July.

The sad thing is many people don't appreciate that people really struggle in this, from young babies to elderly to asthmatic. Meanwhile they're sitting there going yay it could be 40oC. I'm same as yo

Could do we about a week of decent rain, a couple of inches would do, then a drier theme late July into August, but by mid August my thoughts turn to autumn, and there is a change in the feel of things anyway.

Wouldn't be surprised to see the lengthy dry period followed by a notably wet period - often happens like that.

The current heatwave level is now down to 1 temperatures are expected to rise later in the week so further heatwave warnings are possible

Current watch level: Level 1 - Summer Preparedness

Issued at: 08:48 on Tue 10 Jul 2018

Temperatures are expected to remain warm over the next few days, but less warm than recent days, with heatwave threshold values not expected to be reached. The temperature trend is expected to rise again later in the week, with an increasing chance of threshold criteria being met, so the Heat Health Watch level may be escalated again later in the week. However for the next few days, all areas are at Level 1 as of 0900 today (Tuesday 10th July 2018).

I can understand that. But who knows what August may bring?

It will be like August 1980. Summer will end abruptly, with a period of wet and thundery weather and very cool and cloudy. Probably lasting for about 10 days.

The rest of the month will be cloudy and cool and staying below 22c, followed by a late hot spell lasting 3-4 days to close off August. Temps will be 25-27c.

Just a prediction lol.

But do you remember July 1980: day after day of cold showery NNW winds and loads of showers and thunderstorms? Not the usual warm variety, but those that occur when cold air advects across 'warm' land surfaces...though, as London's midday temps were sometimes as 'scorching' as 12C, those storms were nowt to be enjoyed.

This year though, IMO, asks a different question: Where's the cold air going to come from? It's almost as hard to find as in most of our recent winters!?

Lovely during the day, getting a bit too cool now. Not good for al fresco dining. Need a sweltering 40C day.

40C is a bit on the cool side, isn't it?

No way! Though I've seen people wearing coats even at 25-26C - especially old people. I think they're crackers myself.

I prefer 55c. Love the feeling of your eyeballs being hot ?

Indeed. Exciting weather is needed... hopefully with big thunderstorms. And in any case we badly need the rain now, hope pipe ban is imminent here in NW England. Although it will take more than a few thunderstorms to help the reservoirs.

Torrential rain will also cause flooding issues as most of it will just run off. Surely you don't want people's homes to be flooded?

Or like 99% of the time Summer thunderstorms don't give widespread floods as they are often localised - unlike the severe floods we have seen in Cumbria...........in Autumn and Winter.

I'm not talking about widespread floods - torrential rain falling onto rock hard ground will cause problems for wherever it is falling. You are displaying a very selfish attitude there.

The fact is we don't know where a thunderstorm will occur, could happen in a large field but not effect anyone. And talking about selfishness - if you are that concerned about floods you might want to get on to councils about the lack of drain cleaning in this day and age which is a major cause of urban flooding.
