The top official temperature yesterday was - drumroll..... 34c. Recorded in Northholt (London). That makes our winner @shuggee?  Thanks to all who took part, temperatures never made it to the hei

I'll go with the BBC.-8 and Snow..

Good grief, with a change of wind direction from onshore to off, Lossiemouth has apparently seen a rise of 10 degrees in an hour to 27°C, with 7 degree increase in 20 minutes.

This is now a list of forecasts to 11:59 pm Sunday. Please check for accuracy (I will also do a final sweep for quality control and the list remains unofficial just for contest interest). Note, if no date is shown, your entry lacks a date and you could add that either by edit or separate post. One entry also lacks a location as well as a date, and one other has a date but no location.

I have left out one entry of 14 deg (B'ham Tues), one of 5 (in my fridge) and one of -8 with snow. ... Also, I have shown two forecasts that mention Sunday 30th as the date after the table of entries. Status of those would be up to Paul (hope this might save you some work, you could cross-check it if you have your own list already). The entries for same temperature are in the order submitted.  Entries in this table have been checked for accuracy (0050h Mon 24th).

Have to say its an excellent entry, so nice to see many people who dont normally post much entering.

Also have to say most entries are on the high side, but who knows it may not even break 30c lol or it may go to the top.

I notice quite a few have said Gravesend.

Isn't Gravesend no longer a weather station anymore?

Yep, but will take kent as the county anyway.
