Started this thread as im sick of the heat, fed up of melting everytime i move. Feel free to moan away ??

And that's the difference between dealing with significant cold and heat. At least with significant cold you can stick the heating on, it's far easier to warm up indoors in the cold than cool down in

I think this week has finally been the tipping point where the majority are sick of the heat. Tomorrow is looking gorgeous, however. Mid-20s and dew points in single figures. Perfect.

Friday was great with all that rain,freshened it up,couple of cooler days last week.

I wouldn`t call it a heatwave this week in the west with lots of cloud and fronts coming in, been more of a westerly influence this last 7 to 10 day.

Nope I think after the winter/early spring snow and cold the heat has been great. We’ve not had any exceptionally warm weather for about a week now. Most days temperatures have been around 22.C-27.C which for central Scotland is very respectable normally it would only stay that warm for a few days but it’s been the norm since the middle of May. Although yes it did get too hot up here for a while at the end of June we had 2 days where it got above 30.C.

Although the weather fan in me does not mind it (and the humidity has been worse as recently as the July 16 hot spell) for the most part it outstayed its welcome in early July when we started dialing up the minima and humidity a bit. 

 

Same here.  If it drops down to or below 16-17C overnight and the humidity is low, as it was during June, I quite enjoy the warmth, but it's been 30C here today and has felt much more humid than the supposed 42% on Wunderground.  What's worse is that it'll probably be in the mid-20s indoors overnight.

People from the Midlands north and west saying that there hasn't been a drought or heatwave mildly annoy me - try being here in South Norfolk or anywhere in the SE, East Anglia or Home Counties!

There has a been a drought here by definition.

Not sure that I'm ready for an end to the heat just yet (let the kiddies have a decent summer holiday for once?); but I do, however, wish it would hurry up and rain - we've had sod all here, since the end of May!

I think we (heat/sun lovers) can all agree that ideally this heat would be interspersed with some epic thunderstorms. 

And heat haters too! This has been an appalling summer for thunderstorms.

In terms of heat though, starting to struggle a bit now the nights are getting warmer. I'm looking forward to getting to Arizona next week so I'll have an air conditioned hotel room for a fortnight...

I've been coping alright until today. A 18.6C min last night followed by probably some of the worst conditions I've ever experienced in the UK - a temp of 30.3C with a dewpoint of 20.3C.

It would be OK if there was the odd cooler day, but its been relentless for a couple of weeks now.

If I was 20 years younger I would have enjoyed this heat but as I am older I cannot cope with the heat like I used to do.   I am only looking forward to heavy showers of rain with plenty of thunder and lightning to clear the air and make the cooler.

Not just you!

The minute it starts raining (hopefully for a few good weeks solid, with some decent storms) and the temperature drops by at least 10c won't be a minute too soon.

Roll on Autumn and winter.

It's currently still 26oC outside and with a high of 30.5oC today I'm now desperately trying to cool my room down with my new aircon 

It's gone from nearly 30 to 27 over the last 3 hours but it is helping! Was on the south coast this weekend and temperatures around 25oC and wall to wall sun

Apparently it's been cloudier here in north London and hot and humid 

Its the humidity which is getting to me but it's interesting to experience weather similar to the heatwave of 1975 which everyone always refers to so long may it last

I was 19 in 1976, Katrine, and it was fantastic - now, though it's like walking through syrup!

But six weeks' incessant thunderstorms would make up for it!?️⛈️

cant be much of an A/C unit if its only dropped the temp by 3c in 3 hours!

I recently moved from Gatwick up to just East of Loughborough. There has definitely been drought in this area of the Midlands. No green grass here. Ground cracked. We have had minor rain since 23rd May, which has done nothing but evaporate. 

Where I am we have had breeze and some quite chilly nights despite the heat, however, I am not a heat lover due to and autoimmune condition don't deal well with higher temperatures.

That said, it has been cooler up here than down south and drier than West Midlands. Last time I saw really decent rain was on 16th June just outside Birmingham, which was a torrential downpour.

Each day is a day closer to cooler weather!
