Nightmare last night...power cut, no fans or anything - it was like trying to get to sleep in a sauna. Lightning was flashing all around and as there were no lights in the house the lightning showed u

In all the years I used to record the weather daily I never saw a pattern quite like it, I was stuck at 37.9c too and it's dropped back a bit now.  Records are not easy to break!

Just had two bits of high cirrus cloud play with the sun and there is one more bit to do the same in about 5 mins or so.... but I’m still sitting at 37.9c! Surely Cambs has done or equalled the record?

Is Faversham's 38.5C now discredited in these circles? Is Kew Garden's 38.1C now the official...so we only need 38.2C?

?? its the official Met Office record

Do you think 15:00 will be peak temps....or do we have until around 16:00?

I would say we have till 5pm based on what happened on Tuesday with some very late max temps in some locations.

I don't know myself .... but there was definite worries about its site location ..... and other weather blogs say its "discredited" .... I have no agenda either way..Faversham is a lovely town ?;)

As far as I know the Met Office inspected the site after it reported its temperature in a monthly submission and were happy with the set up and siting. Its the Official record of the Official Met Office

Offical highest temperature today at the moment of 37.7C in Kew and Writtle.

However I suspect both Heathrow and Cambridge will warm this hour as the cloud cover for both areas looks lower than it was for the previous hour.

Yeah a few bits here now and can't get out of the 37's so think its over for here now given the time but quite an experience, much better from the garden than on the tubes like last time! 

 

Somewhere in Cambs that avoided the cloud will have definitely equalled or beaten the record officially, I'd be shocked if not. Will be interesting to hear the reports later.
