Southeast and East Anglia weather discussion


Recommended Posts

Like some others on here I am dreading next 3 days heat wise.working outside for a living last summer was just horrendous with 8 straight weeks in high 20s and low 30s with not a drop of measurable rain in this part of nw Kent for 54 days!!this year has been much more bearable till now with only the odd day that has felt really hot.i feel sorry for those who have to commute in London with the tubes becoming unbearable I would guess by Thursday (have done that in a previous life!!).

all I can say is keep hydrated and if you have elderly neighbours keep a check on them for the rest of the week.i think that the uk all time record will go on Thursday and think we may have to start to get used to these temperatures in the future in  these worrying times of climatic change?

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

Out on this morning's walk and as promised this time with camera at the ready. And I was lucky enough to hit the jackpot with this great display of virga from cloud in the distance. And you can see wh

This is not meant to cause offence but I’d appreciate it if you (and others) cease putting a dampener on genuine excitement at the current (and brief!) extreme weather. It’s a weather forum for weathe

As I’m sure a few of you in here are aware, estofex have issued a level 2 for mainly S coast areas and a level 1 extending into parts of our region! 

Could get exciting into tonight!

That would match the meto written summary, I won't be building my hopes up here in Maidstone, but you never know!

Sunny start here, just a little low cloud drifting up from the south, probably associated with some patchy fog over the low lying areas nearby.

London could hit 35c today, probably 32c/33c where I am so certainly a hot one.

The July record still looks likely to fall on Thursday.

Indeed and the overnight temps are insane, according to the beed no lower than 27*c!!

Already 24.5c according to your weather station 

 

edit: can’t be right surely, the official station at Shoreham airport was 15c at 7am

If the 03z UKV verifies around the Reading area then the July record of 35.3 is likely to go on Thursday, maybe even the all time record of 36.4C. Only 18C currently - Think I better try and cool the house down whilst I still can!

An interesting few days ahead.. However, i am not looking forward to the peak of the heat at all! 

Storm wise it looks like some of us could still be affected tonight, although the elevated nature of them might mean a lot of us see distant lightning off to the west anyway,

Interesting there’s mention of dry thunderstorms . Very unusual if that happened in the UK.

In terms of what’s on the way for the se , some quite extraordinary temps recorded in parts of sw France . Several locations reporting 35c at 11.00 am !

That's because of very thick mist lying over the River Adur this morning, including the Airport...

The time is 10:26 am and it is 22.5°C outside and 25.4°C indoors.  To cope with the indoor heat I have blackout blinds and blackout curtains which make it more bearable.

The sky is mostly clear apart from a few wisps of cumulus clouds.

There maybe thunder in South Ockendon later on in the week but I do not know if there will be any visible lightning.

Out of the thunderstorm warning area  ?. A storm later in the day always makes a hot day more bearable I find.

Dreading the next few days as I don't even have a balcony at home, the allotment is scorching and without shelter and my little vintage MX5 doesn't have air con! I'd be much more excited about this week's temps if I was doing nothing  by a pool. Instead, I'm in a mild panic.

You'd be amazed what a little heat island I live in, a combo of the A40, a tarmac car park and three blocks facing each otther mean it's noticably hotter here than round the corner. 

Don't forget to drink those extra couple of glasses of fluids today, it really makes all the difference.

Already over 27c before 11am, scorcher!

I think we will pretty much miss out on the pyrotechnics in the anglia region. SW England looks explosive later though, could be some good videos appearing later! From a selfish point of view I don’t mind if the SE misses out this time, if it stays dry it might make all the difference to the maxima available on Thursday.

It’s  roasting after a low of 17.1C overnight could prove to be record breaking night Met Office forecasting a low of 23C absolutely awful... house like an oven!
