Drought stress will cause issues.Screaming wind?  Down south adjectives i suspect differ to us up North..😀....bit of banter

Trees will recover from dry weather. Wind does far more damage. The wind really was howling today, hopefully my allotment crops haven’t been flattened

Just go shirtless it helps a lot.  Also shower regularly.

I always used to do that, gb; but since I had to have a basal cell carcinoma removed - not so much!😨

Quite possibly, 252, it probably affects us all from time-to-time...? But, thankfully, after an utterly horrendous night, last night, mine is starting to ease off.

My mum often breaks out in rashes in winter when going from the cold outdoors to a heated building. She gets prickly heat in summer sometimes but not as often.

What a disgusting summer once again in Central Europe. Not to mention it began in April. Trees are still dying from 2015 drought and this will be another nail in the coffin for the already decimated forests. Groundwater levels are falling quickly and there are already talks of butchering livestock because there is no feed for them. The next week will be lovely with max. temps reaching 35-37C.

Extreme drought for three years in a row, ugh.

Send some of that heat my way in South Wales.  Summer has been fairly average here.

It looks like this weekend's fresher spell is just a blip temps set to increase once more from midweek

Thanks! The wind causes so much damage in winter, it annoys me intensely when it happens in summer. At least the crops have had a drink 🙂

I'm surprised. In Slovakia it's been very thundery since about the middle of April. June was actually a pretty wet month here. Just coming back from Hungary now where it's also been very stormy during my visit (I actually got soaked in Eger).

It does look very sultry this week. The latest ECM for Bratislava doesn't go below 22C right out to day 10, including a minimum of 26C for Thursday and Friday! It probably won't be that high (in my experience the ECM nearly always overdoes high summer minima for here) but it's going to be sticky for sure.

Can't wait to see how hot my flat is when I get back. 😕

This, some people prefer more traditional British summers and others prefer more Mediterranean/Continental style summers, neither preference is technically better, it is merely just a preference, those ridiculing people for wanting t-shirt weather for a couple months a year are pathetic frankly.  

I don't object to t-shirt weather; not so keen on seeing bare beer-bellies and low hanging shorts though! 😁

An outside chance of 40C according to the high-res GFS min/max temp chart. I don't think I've ever seen a 38C on these charts before:

It would be interesting for sure, but I'd be happier if temperatures like that vanished on the next run!

As a hairy northern Irishman I see it as my duty not to shock people by displaying my belly!

Not sure where to post this, but the title does have moan in it, so must be close enough.

Can Netwether please replace that 'Feels Like' temp shown on the 10 day forecast to something closer to the actual predicted temp. For me today says 'Feels Like' 28oC about 8 degrees off reality - it drives me mad :(

What sort of an August would we need for it to finish top of the pile? I imagine if you looked at 1995 at this same time it would have been lower than this summer so far. But that year had an exceptional August of course.

August would have to be a pretty decent month.
