    Hull made 32c yesterday, which is very unusual. There has certainly been a shift in fortunes this Summer from west to east.

    I'm aware that I've been moaning of recent, but there seems to b a new trend for those in areas that are cool at present to state that they want the plume to move west so they're included without stopping to consider how that would affect the east and south east which would get even hotter than we are at present.

    Indeed, not wanting to sound harsh to anyone living in the north or west of the UK who are moaning about this current spell not affecting them (they have every right to be fair). It is worth remembering that some of the current hots spots were stuck under mist and low cloud during large proportions of the summer so far. In fact  Great Yarmouth has only just seen its first couple of very warm days of the summer, let alone hot this week. Confirmed by my father complaining about being unable to paint the outside of his house. :p

    I guess in a classic summer the heat does move around as time goes on and things balance out.

    As for records breaking, i can't see august 2003 going, that said the 1st July 2015 marker looks reachable, even if i feel a little biased towards taking the sheen of that anomalous furnace day in a generally rather poor summer.

    It even hit 30.3C here, making it the warmest July day on record and first day of any month to hit 30C since August 2001. Very unusual indeed.

    Very possible that the July record could go on Friday.

    30C could be reached here on Thursday.

    Friday looks interesting in that the extreme temperatures look very restricted to East Anglia. Some big temperature gradients to be expected. Similar to 10 August 2003 when it was 38C in London but a rather unremarkable 28C here.

    The UKV does indeed have the hottest conditions in Norfolk, actually has a 37c gridpoint. Mid-30s look likely anywhere east of The Wash. Let's hope it all goes bang afterwards.

    We're under a thunderstorm warning so certainly potential for fireworks on Friday here. I'm usually praying for thunderstorms but I kind of want this month to finish under 10mm - two consecutive months under 10mm like Jul & Aug 1995.

    If we're going to break the drought, I would prefer it to be with a biblical deluge!

    Friday looks interesting from the Met Office, the cold front is a lot further W, potentially a much larger area ahead of it would reach very hot temperatures. Also, a thundery trough is shown affecting Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. Somewhere looks likely to get a big storm, fingers crossed.

    Not entirely unusual though for the west to have the warmer conditions in late Spring and early Summer. Eastern areas are usually plagued with more cloud from the North Sea during that time. Roles reverse later in Summer just like what is happening now.

    Yorkshire and Humberside upgraded to a level 3 heatwave alert

    North West England has a level 2 alert in place whilst NE England remains clear on level 1

    Current watch level: Level 3 - Heatwave Action

    Issued at: 08:27 on Wed 25 Jul 2018

    There is a 90 % probability of heatwave conditions between 0900 on Monday and 0900 on Saturday in parts of England.

    Very hot and humid weather is forecast to become established across much of England during Wednesday and Thursday, then continuing into Friday. Whilst most areas will see a period of hot weather, the highest temperatures are expected across eastern parts. It will also be feeling humid, with temperatures remaining warm overnight. Temperatures are currently expected to peak across eastern parts on Friday, with the chance of some exceptionally hot weather developing. However this is also likely to be lead to thunderstorms developing. At the same time less hot weather will spread east into western parts. The hot weather and thunderstorms are then expected to gradually clear east overnight into Saturday. During the weekend, slightly less hot weather will move across all parts of the UK, with temperatures likely falling below heat health thresholds. However, there remains the potential for further very warm weather.

    An update will be issued when the alert level changes in any region. Alerts are issued once a day by 0900 if required and are not subject to amendment in between standard issue times. Note that the details of the forecast weather are valid at the time of issue but may change over the period that an alert remains in force. These details will not be updated here unless the alert level also changes, the latest forecast details can be obtained at the following link: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/#?tab=map

    Much cooler today. We hit 24.9C briefly earlier but its 21.9C right now with a breeze. It feels so pleasant.

    That heat on Friday can go back to where it came from as far as I'm concerned!

    The 40c barrier to be broken somewhere in the se over the next fortnight ?  Highley unlikely I know, its about 104f  in old money. 

    Must be a bit of a muppet replying to my own post, but at least it gets me past my 100th post. 

    I see the bbc have edged the temp up a degree or to, there now predicting 37-38 for Friday, quite close but a big ask for 40c, still not a bad prediction for an idiot ?

    It's possible in an odd place ,airstrip race track or quarry but probably  wouldn't get reported

    The temperature has slowly creeped up to 31c in London this afternoon. 

    Another scorcher.

    Still no 30C here this summer! Had it in Scotland, Ireland, west Wales and the east coast but very few places in the west Midlands have made it. How on earth does that happen, we are nowhere near the sea compared to them.

    This summer has been so good apart from that. It's only happened once here since 2006 (19 July 2016), it used to be quite easy in a hot spell.

    No August 2003 repeats please. Very mediocre month here, one hot day on the 9th and lots of dry cloudy borefest weather. Give us August 1990, August 1995 or July 2006!

    Shawbury has recorded just over 200hrs of sunshine thus far this month.
