Yes a UV of 9 across Cornwall this week. This one below is for Penzance. Can't recall this happening before? Or if it has it's got to be extremely rare. Because even Cornwall is pretty far north compared to the Mediterranean.

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

I do think you're onto something regarding working conditions; I wonder how many of those who sneer at you for not appreciating really hot weather are desk pilots in air-conditioned offices?  I did a research Masters for a year in a new building at UEA with fantastic air conditioning, though this was for a year July 2007 and July 2008, which, of course, was a period that saw two cool summers, but there were some warm/hot days, and I noticed how much 'brighter' I felt during the day than I had a few years earlier in an old lab during my third year research as an Undergraduate during the winter but with the heating turned up higher than it needed to be.

My working day is steam sterilisers(autoclaves). The rooms can be little more than 6ft square at some sites. Temps in summer over 35c plus with induced humidity of 100%. You can't stay in for long on the worst days. Air con is not allowed due to CQC regs but many ignore this as staff still need to use the rooms. Having high ambient temps makes a huge impact on the working day,which i fear will become more of a issue as summers are getting a lot warmer at a non linear rate. Lot of folk aren't really understanding the impact our warming climate is having. Take the astonishing Siberian temps this week. A very worrying situation.

According to the Met Office Edmonton is a 7 today & not any higher all week? And I believe they take into account elevation too. So I'd be very surprised if you got to 10 given we're now around the solstice. It got as high as that in California when I worked there but that's not surprising given it was as far south as Spain.

Just looked at a couple of other sources & they are different on them as well. So who knows what to believe. But the original point is I still can't recall seeing a 9 in this country. Like someone else quoted a snippet from the Met Office saying an 8 only occurs on "exceptional" days. I've noticed the UV has been a bit higher than normal through the Spring as well.

My sympathies - that sounds awful.

Might I seriously ask those Netweather members who are seemingly turned-on by extreme heat - do you somehow manage to sleep unimpeded in hot, humid conditions, or do you actually enjoy the experience? 

Sleep is harder for sure, but under a thin sheet with the fan on me it’s not so bad. I sleep less in the summer anyway due to the early morning light but I also feel way less tired regardless.

I work in a tin box with no air conditioning at all, so no.

Another awful day in the North West. 

Yes not the most inspiring of starts here, low cloud and drizzly rain, forecast is for it to clear by lunchtime. Tomorrow will be a very different day.

A lot of folks aren't really happy unless we hit 35 degrees, go figure... 

Like you can't enjoy the outdoors, the garden, have a picnic, whatever if it's 27, can you?

so far summer 2020 has been up and down.. (if you want to start from the June 1st that is). I am hoping we do get a long settled period eventually this summer. It really annoying when the weather changes from day to day.Nice 4 days coming up and a lovely start here. so no complaints.

Heat everywhere again. The USA is having its own heatwave. We are going to get our own hot spell and there's Siberia of course which is the most extreme one of the selection.

Heat.thumb.jpg.ba11136723f6f1ad6ccb7b744500f1ea.jpg

Look how far south that wind has come from and dragged all that heat right up to the Arctic Circle. That temperature contrast is extreme from Siberia at 30+ C compared with the freezing point temperatures just to the north of it. Imagine the severe thunderstorms if the air mass wasn't so dry

Really enjoyed our first Month of Summer so far - few cool/wet days (today is pretty grim! ?) but most have been in the high teens/low twenties (our average June temperature is a whopping 16C ?) with plenty of sunshine! Mild nights also...especially the last seven to ten days. 

Buzzing for this brief burst of heat Thursday/Friday with the risk of thunderstorms.

Warmth, convective weather, stunning sunsets, lenticular clouds and noctilucent clouds have been the highlight of this month for me.

I am a weather enthusiast who loves every season of the year - each delivers something I enjoy. (Love anything extreme as let’s be honest...our climate is not exactly the most exciting on Earth - nothing much really happens all year round!)

Totally understand/respect that everyone is different with regards to weather preferences as can be seen in this thread - makes for an interesting forum. (Would be boring if you we all enjoyed the same weather types!)

Some of my favourite local pictures I have taken this month.

It’s a weather forum - people here are very likely to be drawn to the more extreme side of weather whether it be cold or hot. 
 

Where do all these posters come from in the summer? It’s like the heat-haters have burner accounts or something.

All the best everyone! 

You live in such a great spot for weather photography. Water and mountains - beautiful in winter and summer alike eh.

 

Enjoying the next few days as it looks iffy again from the weekend. June has had its moments but this far its been far more like a typical May down here.

Great pictures as ever. Postcard stuff! 

We don't get much photograhic opportunities like that down here in the land of bland.

Yeah, same here. It’s easier to fight tiredness when the days are longer.
