EAST: 34.3C at Writtle, Essex, makes it the hottest day of the year so far. It was also the warmest place in the UK today.

Quite a day to see pretty much the whole of East Anglia reach 30c or above. After the storms the humidity wasn’t that high so it actually felt pretty decent.

Don’t know what to think of tomorrow, it isn’t like we have much experience with that potential level of heat.

We could only go up there in 20 minute spurts after about 11am. It peaked at 47.4 degrees 🔥🥵😭

Worked in a few boiler rooms over the years, and yes you have to come out after a short stint, stay too long and you end up with an inane grin on your face, and end up in A and E lol.

The good news is that once we get tomorrow’s grot out the way temperatures go on a downward spiral.

I was brought up in Writtle, a very interesting place. Marconi had a research establishment there and the first public broadcast was from there. When I worked for Essex County Council I used to make use of their weather records. One year whilst in money saving mode the energy conservation officer had the bright idea over a Christmas/ New Year holiday period to rely entirely on frost thermostats on the outside of county buildings with the heating only coming on if the external temperature only fell below a certain level. Sadly following several mild days over the holiday period a very vigorous cold front came down from the north and temperatures fell like a stone. By the time the heating kicked in it was too late and at least £200,000 worth of damage was the result with pipes bursting come the thaw. This caused ceilings to collapse, electrics to be damaged, carpeting to be ruined and gymnasium floors to warp. in addition school books and IT equipment was damaged. Trying to save money does not always work. 

I was actually in Writtle today visiting by 90 year old uncle and getting some shopping for him. it certainly felt very hot. The thought of an arctic plunge like I mentioned above sounds almost appealing.

Kind Regards

Dave

The only two places I have done, are Rhodes and Las Vegas. It was way too much. So god knows what it’ll feel like here! After 31-32c today my room is sauna hot!

I remember being in Shanghai during the record breaking 2017 heatwave with 6 days at 41 degrees. The difference is the dew point was 27 C so the heat index was 55 C.. in the shade!

Vegas was the hottest place I've ever been. Temps were low 40s every day but feels like temps were more like mid to high 40s. Felt like I was living in an oven for a week. That was definitely too hot! 

Don't think we've ever had long enough sustained very high temperatures here for me to wish for cool weather.

Mate if you don’t understand what the difference is between worldwide high temperature records toppling and a freak weather event your either ignorant or poorly educated on climate change. 

40 degrees, that’s great. What next I wonder. 

Also I love extremes cold & heat so obviously don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade as it is weather forum after all. Just very concerning, that was my initial point.

 

I am neither fella. You were raining on lightning lovers parade with your initial post after his and i took umbridge to it. We can in here be allowed to express our excitement at records being broken. I work in central london and have melted over the last 2 days but its still exciting for some. 

And please dont call me ignorant. I chose to mention a couple of things. Not saying this is a freak event but to see this level of heat is unprecedented like it or not. The record may not go but the charts have increased the heat over the last couple of runs. Coming in at 40 degrees. Never have i seen that.  In my 20 years of weather watching. 

As was said before look after your elderly and vulnerable peeps its gonna get hot. Peace Out (drops the mike as he walks out)😁

Alot of the global models were a good 2-3c too low today (which to be fair, was also the case on Monday) and so wouldn't be shocked to see the GFs/ECM 35-36 actually end up as a 38-39.

Imagine the moans in here of a week @ 35c+ 

A 4 day heatwave of temps in the Low 30s and it’s a catastrophe to some folk. 

Heaven forbid the UK summer climate gets something note worthy for 5 days before returning to business as usual.

We’ve had some beautiful days here.  I’m really lucky because my kids have grown up in the heat of Dubai so it just doesn’t seem to bother them at all. My neighbours think my kids are crazy playing outside in the middle of the day for hours. It’s so nice to have these lovely days, someone posted  on my fb about Christmas coming with a snow scene, that’s always a nice thought.

Indeed Mark. The Beeb 'Look East' forecast this morning sounded confident that today would be "not quite as hot as yesterday". Maybe the almost complete lack of breeze today played a part with lack of mixing? Anyway, onward to tomorrow and it's looking odds-on that a new record will be set somewhere in our Region if the Netweather Extra Short Range Model is on the money. Parts of Kent suggested to be as hot as central London.

@Blessed Weather do u think they are under cooking those temps by a couple??

Well the various high resolution models seem to be in general agreement Jimmy, going for 38C or 39C as the max tomorrow. Here's the Arome and Arpege models forecasts:

23C and 74% here now, according to Weatherquest's station at UEA.  Might be slightly cooler here, but not much I'd expect.

Haven’t really enjoyed the hot weather this week, particularly with how much it’s limited my outdoor activity and the effect it’s had on my sleeping. It’s also had an impact on my cat, who has struggled with the temps and will continue to do so tomorrow. 

However, I am on the flip side fascinated to see how tomorrow turns out and what 37c/38c feels like. Luckily I have good air con at work and they’re allowing us to wear relaxed clothes, but I have a lot of sympathy for those who do not have such luxuries. 

Once tomorrow’s ‘peak’ temperature is out the way I’ll be looking forward to both the risk of storms and the fresher weather in the days that follow. One day of high 30’s is enough for me.
