    Maximum temps have dropped 13 degrees between yesterday and today here in London (38c to 25c). The difference is staggering.

    Hottest temperature I've ever experienced in the UK yesterday with 36.7c in Croydon, if only the cloud hadn't moved in after 14:15! Feel like if any August is going to buck the recent trend it will be this one, its been a pretty great summer since the late June plume tbh.

    I think it could be a decent August, but like I said before, it could also be changeable. We will start to see a deterioration when it hit mid August.

    Awaiting validation.. but *potentially* highest UK temperature on record in ... Cambridge 38.7 C!

    Who said it was impossible for Cambridge to be the hottest place in the UK yesterday? ?

    Correction. I said it was possible for Cambridge to have the hottest tempreture, but not break the all time record.

    Anyway, if the Botanic Gardens reading is correct from Cambridge, I was of course wrong. We can't be right all the time and I can accept when I am not right. Hopefully I was wrong as it was a record I wanted to see broken.

    A smaller more isolated storm is seen to the north west at just before midnight,  that was acually out to sea near the lytham/blacpool coastline , remember looking at blitzorg just before bed and noticed white 'x's beginning to ping just off the coast there , looked out the window to the west and saw quite vivid flashes, thats about 40 miles from here , The main event came along about an hour later

    Yes, I remember in August 2012 there was a storm in that area and the flashes could be seen far south as the Midlands. Seen and timelapsed lightning flashes from storms off the coast of Cumbria.

    Last weekend was rubbish but as soon as the working week started on Monday the heatwave began. drawing the curtains back   to hot sun and blue sky every weekday with temps maxing around  30c most days ,   

    Get up Saturday , grey , drab featurless stratus, drizzly , ,  the weather knows its the  weekend again

    What a sick sense of humour it has ?

    So glad to see the back of the horrendous weather we had last week,much better today. Last few days have been a challenge to say the least,everybody i spoke to on my travels hated it,nothing on the horizon model wise to suggest a repeat.

    I'm glad it's cooler. Last week was too much, I must have spent half my working day sat in the car running the a/c.

     

    I heard about so many failed air con systems due to overheated condensor units.

    Likewise,some of the noises i was making getting back into the car last week with the aircon on full could have got me arrested!

    We'll see, but I seriosuly doubt the record will be set here. Nigh on impossible to set 38+c here. It's too north.

    I think it's technically impossible to break 38c in the Cambridge area with current global warming.

    People can disagree, but it is too far north to achieve the most extreme of temps. It's Heathrow/Northolt/Kent if you are looking for 38.5c plus.

     

    lol the point I was trying to make was referring to these posts above. You repeatedly kept saying it was impossible even though we all disagreed, especially the "too far north" thing, that was a bit ridiculous.

    Just a bit of fun, nothing serious, but we all told you so! ?

    If at the end of today it is indeed the hottest place in the UK...would that be the first time in recorded history? @Weather-history
