Not really. August 2015 was cooler than average. It had over 200% of the average rainfall and about 60% of the average sunshine.

2011 was a terrible summer in London.

Yes 2011 was dreadful. Only early and late June, late May were nice that year. And this followed the lovely warm April.

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!

Left is May 2018, right is July.

Bring it on. I've seen enough rain to last a lifetime.

It’s weird how the London and south east region has been experiencing warm humid conditions, and others have been stuck under cooler weather. 

Its been a disappointing summer spell. Hardly any sun the past few days with temps in the mid 20s, but much closer to 23, while still feeling very muggy.

Haha! It’s a huge shame. With models showing temperatures into the mid 30’s and high humidities, it looked epic. Reality: cloudy and 22C ? Think you’ll have to pop over the Channel to see that supercell, ain’t happening here!

Yeah, it’s in Germany or central France.

Apparently this was the week of an extreme heatwave and the BBC would soon fall into line.........midweek now and so far it's been well below average never mind even warm here. Very damp, grey and cool again to start the day and with a forecast high temp of 15c today the search for even average temps goes on. Dire summer so far.

Yes it was grim. The dry ground was exacerbated by a desiccating E'ly during May and June. That stripped a lot of the moisture.

That’s what summer is all about, not wash outs and nonexistent plumes....

Summer in the Spanish interior or Australian outback, maybe. 

Looking at scorched, yellow/brown earth everywhere I went wasn't my idea of great, then there were moors fires breaking out. It was grim.

Give me sporadic convective rain events (to keep things fresh and green) followed by a few days of warmth and sun, all summer long.

Yawn......it’s cool, cloudy and wet for 9/10months of the year with only a short window for Sun and heat. This summer is a complete failure so far.

Yawning is exactly what I was doing last year. Day after day of the same 'anti-weather'. Constant Azores ridging meaning there wasn't even any storms for temporary relief. It was horrid.

Each to their own.

Sounds nice, would be good if that happened. Sadly, it’s either lengthy rainless spells (not that frequent) or relentless garbage (like this summer, so far).

I must say i´m quite surprised considering the extremely hot uppers for tomorrow and Friday that highs only look in the low to maybe mid 20´s? considering the sunshine forecast and uppers of above 20 850pHa for much of England and Wales Friday i´m not sure how widespread 30c or higher is on the cards???

Can you imagine if last year's Beast from the East was downgraded in the same way? Crikey, this place would have gone into meltdown. 

And can you imagine if some of us came in here like looool unlucky/i'm glad it's not going to come off/who needs that kind of cold anyway/what purpose does it serve/you're being over-dramatic i's been a lovely winter/long may the current synoptics continue etc

Probably would've been banned from the forum.

I agree with this, it seems to be much more acceptable for the cold lovers to rejoice at our summer misfortune. If I did the same in winter I would be attacked and dismissed instantly by an angry horde.

Big difference between last year and this though. June 2018 was bone dry whereas 2019 has been a washout. It will take more than a dry July (if that even happens) to bring about drought conditions like last year. 

Here meanwhile it's already passed 30C and it's not 11am yet. It'll be interesting to see how high it gets (forecast is 34C). It's been a very dry month (9.2mm) but May's wetness means it couldn't have come at a better time.
