The met office have said no overnight records were broken, but they did mention this interesting phenomenon, a "heat burst"  

Worth remembering: We broke the July record today by 1.4C. That's a big margin!! 

We were so close!

Those with rain are going to be stuck under it for several hours today

Another issue just presented itself with the welcome rainfall today. New neighbours next door had their guttering replaced and my worry was proven when an old leak between theirs and ours returned with vengence. Glad it showed up now, not during winter.

With all this rain July is likely to be wetter than average here, but not as badly as June which was twice as wet as average. So, could be a wet summer despite the crazy warm spell of last week.

6th August 1910: 27.8C at Sumburgh Head

Remarkable temperature that, I think I read it was recorded quite early in the day as well... I think it was also backed up by readings at Baltasound. Here is the synoptic chart for that day.

Clearly warm air advection from Scandinavia helps there. Less observations earlier on in the record may mean small variations in synoptics may not be picked up on.

Looking forward to sleeping in the douvet tonight without feeling guilty. It felt wrong to run the A/C and snuggle up in a douvet all last week!

Hopefully the rest of summer will be like this.

Yes. 26°C and sunny for the rest of Summer.

Well today was as about as grim as it gets. Quite windy, constant rain and cloud. Only in England can you have approaching 40c two days ago and full sun, back down to this muck. I don't want to sound arrogant, but I find it really difficult to see what good anyone finds about this weather. It's just grim. Definite post heatwave blues for me. 

Hopefully it picks up soon.

Wouldn't rule out another plume, say mid August. that would tie in with pattern that we have had this summer. But we are talking about modern Augusts , which have been nice, some average, but many have been poor even in the se. time will tell.

The last few cloudy days here mean that we might struggle to even get average sunshine this month! Maybe barely scraping 200 hours.

Hopefully August will finally deliver. The first week looks like it'll be very close to normal.

Yes, same here. Over twice the monthly average in June and now July looks like coming in wetter than average too. 20mm of rain today and perhaps another 25mm to fall over the next 24 hrs. This on top of Tuesday night's inch of rain and other bits and pieces throughout the month.

But this month has largely been settled...the first half or so of the month we hardly had any recorded rainfall, problem is now days in our summers we experience more slow moving if not static fronts or low pressure that isn't usually Atlantic oriented, June a case in point and now the last day or so - so rainfall totals don't always tell a tale of how the month has been.

I strongly suspect you may be in the minority with that one,to many folk had sleepless nights last week. But i do fully understand your view as your are a lover of heat,for you last week must have been amazing. Hope the blues aren't to bad by they way,i know what they feel like in winter when its mid teens in February!?

I think some rain was definitely needed and many places got a soaking. I don’t mind a couple of days of it IF the sunshine and warmth make a return.

Massive heavy rain here today, over 25mm (1 inch) has fallen, which now puts July in the very wet category (locally). Also I wouldn't say it's been an overly settled month. We've had 16 days with some rain falling so far here.

Four days this month have had significant rainfall event. 19th, 24th, 27th, 28th. The first half was dry, but not overly settled either with several days where it rained but not much fell.
