Apart from late spring this summer has been pants here in west yorks. So even if we get some good weather rest of August with temps low to mid 20s then that could rescue summer for me.

I'm fairly optimistic that this coming month will serve up our best summer weather here up nw.

OK @damianslaw you've tempted me into it.  Mike's forecast for summer 2020: In my view, the building blocks are already built now given the exceptional spring we have had this year in the UK

Beautiful noctilucent clouds this evening here in Prague 

This seems to be a facet of our changing climate - in the 1970s and 1980s, it took exceptional synoptics like those of late June 1976 to get temperatures approaching the mid-30s Celsius, and most heat

Aye, very January synoptic setup, be looking at 13 degrees for some areas in a 'winter' month, maybe higher if February

Cool and wet here since Sunday, a fair bit of rain has fallen and it’s a chilly 14°C currently. Should improve drastically later this week.

BBC automated forecasts have downgraded the heat for my location and is now showing increased cloud and/or rain. 
 

Perhaps the heat won’t be as widespread as we originally thought it would be?

Does it matter that much if it is "only" ,say, 22C to 25C instead of 33C to 35C every day?

We already get 3 months worth of that, mid 30s definitely more exciting! And multiple days of mid 30s haven't happened since 2003 (and before that 1976)!

MO still have 37c for Friday:

The good news assuming no upgrades is that both the Euro and the GFS bin the heat by Wednesday so we only have 6 days to deal with (Fri-Weds), all they are really arguing about is the degree within that time period. The general trend is also for vorcity to increase so more chance of storms from Monday especially.

Very nice here in London, 23C, blue skies earlier on I’ve still not had a drop of rain this month.

Perhaps bank on the fact that unpleasant heat isn't a dead cert as the outlook and distribution of heat/warmth keeps changing. You never know, it may stay in the low twenties in your area.

Looks like today has maxed out at 14.6c and its so dull outdoors that I need the lights on indoors.

Had a light on earlier. Another miserable cloudy day.

Still looks like a very warm/hot few days to come IMBY. 26 - 30 - 34 - 30 - 26. ☀️

Thankfully the very hot temps seem unlikely now, besides perhaps Friday. So pleasant sleeping conditions to come I hope!

No chance of a hot August now though. Rest of the forecast looks very average with temps in the mid 20s.

Peaked at 24c here in London today. Went a bit cloudy early afternoon but a beautiful sunny evening here now with not a cloud in the sky.

Put this in here as don't want to clog up the Model thread.

When the BBC ditched the Met Office, we thought that their forecasting would deteriorate, and there was some evidence of it.

But now that the Met Office doesn't have its primary method of presenting forecasts (the BBC), have they also become worse?

Clog up the model thread, now that made me laugh, its  open season for clogging.

What's the latest on temps for Heathrow on sea lol.

A lot of members don't live in the South East.

I’ve actually been pleasantly surprised by the BBC’s accuracy since they switched. Nothing wrong with the Met’s presenting, they have plenty of content on their YouTube channel. However there have been times when their temperature forecasts have been out quite substantially so they are fallible.
