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!

A forecast high of 12 degrees today. Positively tropical.

only 10th June though, many times can be similar to Jan, many days in Dec to Feb have 12C max

Jul to Oct is summer, especially when seas at their warmest

That is just not true. How can many days in Dec to Feb have 12C max? 

The CET 1961-90 January maximum average is 6.4C, even "the off the scale" December 2015 had a CET maximum average of 12.3C.

Disgusting weather for June. I know the rain is welcome, but this is now becoming very annoying. 

My partner can’t work on the gardens when it’s heavy rain, although she can operate around showers. Today, and this week will be a financial loss.

We need a long dry sunny spell.

This Feb had 18 degrees in a few spots, great weather with it though

But that was a waste of time. It came at the wrong time of year, when very few people can make use of it.

It was a mild spell. I wouldn’t call that a heatwave. The papers always exaggerate things. 

It was an exceptional spell of warm weather for that time of year, but unfortunately it was probably an early sign for a poor summer.

So, from a sample size of ONE (no other February has recorded 21C+) you can predict that the following summer will be bad? And you can do all that on June 10th??‍♂️

Even for pattern-matching that's quite a feat!:oldgrin:

I believe a WMO heatwave is recognised as 5C above average for 5 consecutive days (though against the 1961-1990 mean, which I am less keen on). In February a run of relatively mild weather could easily be a heatwave then, without actually being hot. I can't say whether or not February weather met this definition but I would not be surprised if it did in numerous places.

A truly tropical 11c here today, with rain totally 13mm so far. Expect that to go up up and away in the next day. Truly diabolical for mid June.

It really is. To think that some folk on here prefer this to what we had last summer just baffles me.

It was nice and sunny, and clear. We had a few days like that in April and mid May, despite the chilly wind. 

Now into mid June, and it’s the damp cloudy regime that’s taken over.

Well it is bad. This June is proof of that.

To put it into context, it's 10c below the average temperature for June here (11c vs 21c).

It'd be the same as it being -3c in the middle of the day in January at the same level below average - just nowhere near as fun.

Quite a few, it's only 3-4c above average in winter here.

Disgusting weather today. It’s not just wet, it’s cold. Awful for June, although I’m sure there are a few people who like it.

It's just one day and it is under cloud and rain, soon as the cloud lifts temperatures will respond...certainly not use to these sort of days in regards to recent summers.

so it it reaches -5c for five days in as row in winter that would be classed as heatwave here then? how queer
