It appears on this list of official sites (zoom into the map). https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/research/climate/maps-and-data/uk-synoptic-and-climate-stations

Which makes me wonder what would stop this being an official reading unless the Met Office come up with a good reason to discount it. Which, considering all the other readings around Cambridge yesterday, I think they will struggle to do.

Well there is an official manual site called Cambridge Botanic Gardens on the Met Office station list, so unless there are two weather stations there it looks like it is. It also has the Met Office logo on the station details tab, like Brogdale does.

 

Brogdale is also showing the 38.4C on that site: https://wow.metoffice.gov.uk/observations/details/201907263foef47xtye6ucrdyyb96sccar

Met Office tweet acknowledges the 38.7C subject to validation.
