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. 

Sending  virtual pets to your cat! I hope it will do ok!

Hopefully he’ll be alright, I think he’s looking forward to having somewhere cool in the house to relax come Friday!

Have succumbed to the crazy heat in our Bedroom and come downstairs. Now sitting between our 2 Lounge Fans with a partially frozen flannel on my head. Not a great look but who cares!! Have stuck a couple of these already today in our Freezer for myself and the Wife, for about 10/15 minutes, feels very pleasant for a while.

Regards,

Tom.    :hi: 😓

Hottest temperature I’ve experienced was 48C in Kuwait. Not great in a uniform 🤣

Definitely not especially if the uniform is polyester! My neighbour is a dietician on the acute medical wards and has to wear a horrible polyester tunic, no air conditioning on the main wards only in ICU and theatres, she was cursing yesterday, and said all the manager pen pushing types should be made to wear one for a day and see how they feel!!

I’ve put my pillow case in freezer exceptional circumstances calls for such things... roasting in bedroom 31.6C and outside it’s still 24.5C warmer than this time last night, wonder how high today? Personally I do not see 40c being reached anywhere. Interesting most models are going with areas to north of London like Cambridgeshire being hottest 38-40c, similarly I’m unsure about that... the powerful UHI of London will reign supreme?

Super hot bedroom recording 32 degrees as had windows closed all day whilst at work, poor fans are working overtime, looking forward to the extreme heat and hopefully some decent storms, then I’m happy for temps to be between 24 and 28 degrees rest of summer lol

I have not been able to get to sleep as it is so hot and humid.  The indoor temperature was at 27 Celsius . I am dreading later on as I have to go to the chemist to get my medication which was supposed to be delivered on Tuesday afternoon.

Morning;

Today is the big day. Arpege has a high of 39c in Cambridge with 36-38c widely forecast. However there is potentially some cloud that could build to try and produce a shower or two, but these will be of the pulse variety and would quickly dissipate, not to mention that rainfall will probably fail to reach the ground. If this doesn’t occur then I suspect temperatures could peak at 39c more widely.

As for this evening, chance of thunderstorms developing anyway, but the biggest threat will be eastern areas that could get hit by any storms developing over France which will travel NNW along the eastern frank of the approaching trough.

Fan pointing at me all night on full blast and slept perfectly. 

Really looking forward to experiencing what could possibly be the hottest day the UK has experienced. 

Cloud amounts going to play a big part today whether it reaches 39c

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)😁

Jimmy jimmy jimmy.....if having your own opinion and having preferences for certain weather types is raining on someone’s parade then I’m guilty. As I remember it I simply asked Lightning lover a question and you jumped in on it and showed your immaturity by deliberately getting my name wrong !! Yourself and another couple of posters need to accept that other people on here can disagree with you without reprisal or being accused of raining on one's parade. I can go back into old posts and find plenty of occasions where poor old Wimbledon has been slated on here for his weather preference by the very people making this argument. I suggest you and your henchmen block posters you don’t like to read and kindly let others enjoy their own weather type without being accused of being a killjoy. I’ll just add that thankfully Paul deleted some of the comments regarding climate change yesterday that could well cause offence to people. Hopefully we can all enjoy the storms and move on 👍👌

Already very warm and sticky in London. Patchy cirrus so hopefully not enough to limit temperature rise.

Well today could be a record breaking day temperature wise and I've a feeling that a new record will be set. 

Left for work at 6:45 and temperature already 26.2c here in Coulsdon and a warm wind with that as well.  Hope everyone gets to enjoy the day, after all this is the UK so we know these extremes will not be around for too long, and by Saturday it will seem like a long time ago it happened.

Wind seems to have picked up again in the night. The low was 18c around 3am, after which as the wind increased, so did the temperature as the heat pushed up from the continent.

Already 25c on my station in the garden and that’s with a layer of very thin high cloud

Quite a big difference in how it feels even between 6.30 and now, slight coolness in the air first thing but that's already long gone.

Locally upto 20c now, to be hottest day of year we need a 33c, which should be do able providing we avoid the mid level cloud.

I really need a compass! Driving to and from Upminster this morning at around 6am, I thought I saw distant towers going up. Given that I was travelling along North Road which becomes South Road, I’m assuming  they were SE of me! Now I’m home, i’ve lost the skyline behind trees, but they seem to have gone!

Alexa is telling me that it is currently 23.3C. I’ve lost my weather station!

2 fans on full blast for the 2nd night in a row, not a fan of the heat etc, it accelerates my severe ibs, plus being the boss of my own taxi company, its like slow cooking yourself, sitting in a mobile oven, by around 6pm im done lol, im hoping for a free light and sound show later, I missed it the other night, it all went around my location, but I do wonder if a kent clipper could be on the cards, have a good day all

Lots for us weather enthusiasts to look out for today, from the possibility of record breaking heat to some severe storms this evening and overnight. The Convective Weather forecast showing almost the entire Region at 'moderate' risk of seeing a thunderstorm:

And how about this for a difference of opinion between a couple of the high res models about precipitation later. NMM showing no rainfall AT ALL over our patch at 23.00 tonight, whilst Arome suggesting some real heavy stuff moving through. (Imho I think NMM has lost the plot. :oldsmile:)
