Summer 2019 - Moans, Ramps, Chat etc

Am I allowed to present factual analysis, such as Dan Holley's Tweet, in such a way as to correct "AderynCoch" when he made the incorrect statement:

 June 2018 was bone dry whereas 2019 has been a washout.

or is that deemed to be an attempt to make him feel guilty for his preferences?  Not sarcasm, genuine question.

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!

No problem with that. Although, AderynCoch did say June while that stat is for May. ?

  We are one dry winter from standpipes and food shortages due to crop failures.

Good grief and I thought I was the one spouting hyberbole.?

This Summer has been incredibly dull here in Birmingham. It feels like everywhere else has had an 'okay' Summer so far, but for me it's been one of the dreariest in memory. 

Believe me, it's been dreadful here too.

This afternoon will be a good indicator to the next few days. Upto 22C here, Newquay the same, which is the Tmax GFS is showing for the UK for today.

This June's grey, sunless grotfest continues unabated.  Current temp 20C which is somewhat below par.  Although my long-term memory is obviously selective to some extent, my recollection of summers during the 1950s and Sixties were a procession of wet days, sunny days and the odd thundery spell.   Not like the wall-to-wall cloud for weeks on end that we now endure.

Well here in South Yorkshire it's 14 degrees today, a really refreshing heatwave indeed. Probably the best I've ever known for doing strenuous outdoor activities, and wearing 3-4 layers and coat+hat without feeling too hot. Very refreshing and lovely weather.

Yes, nothing fun at all about endless cloud cover in summer. The other 9 months of the year are bad enough, the short UK summer is the only chance at a respite and it’s nearly 1/3 of the way through. Weeks of sun might be boring to some (not me!) but at least cheerful and pleasant. 

36C here in Prague today, bit hot even for me but at least it feels like summer and not some faux autumn hell.

Just a reminder to a few on here we're not even a third way through summer...if we had the same circumstance in regards to a coldies perspective towards winter there would be more than one reply about it only being Xmas! - it's been a long time since we had poor back to back summer months, who knows what awaits but I'd be very surprised to see an unsettled July on top of this month.

Get out and enjoy today - the sun is out and pleasantly warm. (here in the south east) ?

I'd much prefer sunny weather interspersed with convective weather and maybe a week (before the summer holidays) of rain than the sort of conditions we had in 2016 and '17 - dry but cloudy.

Well that's screwed things up ? I fully expect a rainy cool July now lol.

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. 

I would love a dry warm easterly over this southern cloudy muck.

Anyway the sun has finally come out in London, and with the breeze picking up it feels less humid than the last few days.

Monsoon June mate - never fails to deliver in Alberta - a couple of days from now from Canada Day on it'll pick up I'm sure.

June 2013 - The montser, record breaking Alberta floods - July 1 was 35oC and roasting. Fingers crossed here's a repeat (if you like heat)

Bit hot!......Your a dam sight tougher than i am,i'd be cowering in a darkend room with the aircon on full blast!?

Joking aside i do feel sorry for the folk yearning the heat,June has been shocking for them,flaming June means something totally different this year. It's been the best June though for myself for years though,no hayfever to speak of,good to work in and best of all.....i'm in credit with my electric bill,little or no aircon use,feeling very well off indeed! Fingers crossed July brings something of a re balance for those after a decent summer spell of warmth,having to put up with weather you hate is not conducive to anybodies happiness,i know after no Winter last year to speak of.

Tipped 25°C here! I've just switched on the air pump/stones in the pond. The Koi like that.

I can think of a better word beginning with "f".

Meanwhile we hit the stellar heights of 22C, but still no sun.
