I'm a fan of The Old Windmill in South Hanningfield, I have missed my lunches there so much! Can't wait to go back (I'm still staying home).

Watching those storms over North Wales is making me quite jealous. I sometimes go to a music festival in Portmeirion and what I would give to watch a storm over the bay there. It would be stunning. 

 

We have been there a few times and indeed it is good there.

@Paul1968 i said it was a light lunch- a beef burger and chips from the small outbuilding in the front garden. Adequate but hardly too challenging to get wrong. I have heard from friends though that the restaurant is expensive .

On topic the wind has increased here and it is now a lot less oppressive. As soon as it cools down further I will do my nightly trip up to allotment the other side of Chelmsford to water. A right chore. Hopefully we will have some rain soon. The clay soil is hard and if it is heavy rain it will just run off and not soak in. Light rain over several hours is much more useful

.

Kind Regards

Dave

Dunstable got a good snow cover but melted in the afternoon. Hills around the area did ok. I drove to the highest point in the Chiltrens to have my snow fix. Some photos from Wendover Wood this mornin

Shower cloud lit up nicely by the low sun earlier this evening north of Heathrow where I work.

Nice bit of snow here this morning, so that means it won’t go down as one of the worst winters I can remember but only by the skin of its teeth . Photos below ?

A high of 33.3C here in lowland SE London was very hot and humid earlier on about 3C warmer than yesterday there's a nice cooling breeze now hallelujah been in garden all day, its much nicer compared to inside! My thoughts on this heatwave for my location a bit disappointing in terms of what I was expecting in terms of high temps and its really lacked totally cloudless skies which I adored in May. I had a high of 34.2C on Friday still very hot but I haven't been wowed yet. Last day of July was hottest here 35.6C I'm doubtful Tuesday or Wednesday will beat that.

‘Only’ 27oC here at 7pm - feels like there’s still a breeze coming in off the estuary from a NE direction. I thought that was going to change today. I’m not complaining. The wind is dying down though. It’s gonna be a hot night

Evening all 🙂

As I was trying to work, I'm not sure what temperature was reached here in lowland East London. Certainly 31c, maybe a notch higher. Currently 29c with humidity at 48% but a refreshing breeze from the river helping a bit.

High of 35.5c today at heathrow - models / forecast spot on.

2/3 more days to get through before it gets better however heat & humidity will rise through Tues - where into Weds I think we break the overnight minima record ( ~24c ) before it all explodes at some point...

Just driving ( well the wife is ) back From Devon , The outside temp of the car went from 27c 150miles from London to 34c and we are still 28 miles out from London . Weather also drastically different , mostly cloudy until 70 odd miles out but now mostly sunny skies .

edit - 35c now 

Similar experience here Mark. Left Bournemouth with car temp showing 26 degrees then half way up the M3 it starts to climb until sitting in the traffic jam on the M25 it hit 37 degrees around junction 11 (just before the two accidents and one broken down had us sitting there for 40 minutes to go a few miles).  The house has been shut up for a couple of days so a lounge temperature of 30 degrees greeted us - the coolest room in the house! Saw a few small attempts at towers on the journey and this evening the sky occasionally gets that mildly popcorn look but I think we're out of luck for storms.

Yeah we recorded 36c  eventually I noticed just how much scorched the grass is compared to Wiltshire for example , Devon is still luscious green  . We  come off at Sunbury instead of the M25 as I noticed the journey time jumped by 30mins very quickly. We was lucky as I had a 2nd phone to reset the sat nav , I’ve come back to a boiling hot house too . Fans on full go and all the windows wide open , We also have the occasional strong whiff of marijuana coming in to the house but I can’t stand the heat so I will put up with it tonight . oh to be back in suburbia London . 
 

We asked my Father whilst we was away to do 3 things , Feed the fish , Remove apples and keep the parsley plant going . I guess he forgot one of them 🙈😂

23.4 outside it actually feels a little cooler than the last 2 nights which has been over 25 at this time, however it’s only forecast to drop a couple of degrees at the most tonight.

Hmm, Not sure about nicely, but it’s certainly going to be far too hot!🔥
