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!

Met Office have posted another tweet with temperatures for the week ahead. Previous  screenshots were from a video and on a slightly different scale, so these look a bit different.

Those temperatures are probably on the conservative side.  It wouldn’t surprise me if we see 36/37c in London and the south east.  After being in Scotland for the week, I sure will be going back to a hot house on Thursday!

I’m really hoping the heat extends into the weekend. Would suck to suffer through a working week in my tin-can sweatbox office and my furnace of a bedroom and not be able to have at least one day of relaxation. Might even finally get a tan on my vampiric skin and some vitamin D this week!

GFS op 12z seems much less keen on heat for the coming week.  Only in the extreme S/SE of England do we see anything like what could be called "hot" weather.  I hope this run comes off tbh since there've been some monstrously high temps being suggested at times.

Oh my God call the police the MetOffice is showing 20C!

You're over reacting a bit there aren't you? Though actually yes 20 degrees is very, very HOT for you Irish people, haha. I think you want to ask for the FIRE BRIGADE, though mate, not the police. ?

As much as I kinda wanted the extreme heat to come off purely for the experience, after the absolutely dismal start to summer, a week or so with low-mid 20’s will do me just fine.

I do sympathise with those who don’t like heat so much, especially the humid kind and believe me, low to mid thirties would be a bit much even for me (due to work mainly - if I had the week off I would be loving it).

It’s slightly disappointing the temperatures seem to be moderated despite the incredible uppers reaching our shores, but I can’t complain really about the outlook considering how pants June started.

Indeed

Mid twenties more than comfortable to work and sleep in

I will look forward to my 30c Plus Temperature's in Mid August for my Holiday in Kos.

Agree with you, most of us on this forum enjoy seeing/experiencing extremes in this country, largely due to them being rare in our mainly boring-as climate. Plus we’re all weather enthusiasts.

Mid-20’C and sunny skies sound lovely, after the utterly grim June suffered so far. Hopefully, plenty of thunderstorm events this summer, too. Prague is looking at temperatures in the mid 30’s this week and I’m not especially looking forward to that lol. 24-28C is just right for me.

Just to highlight the contrast we are about to succumb to, I noticed yesterday morning's lows of 1.9C at Aboyne and 1.4C at Redesdale.  A few people in the Northeast might have seen frost on cars yesterday! I wonder if an amateur station anywhere got to 0.

This has to be the weirdest period of model watching I’ve ever seen. From extreme apocalyptical heatwave to bog standard summer fayre if you believe the model thread.

Weather apps are pretty unreliable but every time I load mine up, it takes a degree off the predicted temperatures.

also reading that next week there will be a howling easterly wind. Yeah no thanks.

Nice cool week ahead in South Yorkshire for heat haters, it will only reach 19 degrees on Thursday now, oh well now I know how coldies feel in winter when beasterlies evaporate infront of their very eyes three days before time.

Very true.  Never underestimate the UK weather's ability to disappoint.
