    And tomorrow’s 31 has now become 28 leaving just one day over 30 degrees.

    What are we looking at here? The website still has 31 and 32 degrees for London on 24th+25th.

    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

    BBC Weather have egg on their face - Fridays "33C" has now become "27C".  

    Don’t know where they got it from, for the last 3-4days Friday always looked dodgy so to stick you neck out like that publicly was just silly and a bit daily express like.

    I wouldn't call this a heatwave, just a blip of pleasant summer weather, before it turns cool again. I'm making the most of it! Still cold in my apartment (was below 20 degrees this morning again). Very comfortable conditions at last.

    Yes not been so great today. My app says the cloud should properly break up & clear to sunny from 4 but it's a bit late by then...more than half the day gone. Tomorrow looks a better prospect for topping up the vitamin d. Should be no interruptions. ?

    The UKV is showing a few 32's tomorrow, so a 33 is possible, albeit not Friday.

    Feel for you @northwestsnow. Nothing more frustrating than a cloudy day when other areas are basking in the sun and heat. Have a fair few of those in easterlies during late spring/early summer here.

    It could be one of those days where the Far East of the UK (Norfolk/Essex) where the heat hangs in longest and furthest away from the low could squeak a 30c plus. Very hard to say though.

    Models/charts a few days back had us missing out on the highest temperatures. (This far North)

    Very interested to see if somewhere in Scotland hits 30C. 

    In these setups somewhere like Glasgow usually does well up here - would not be surprised to see a high of 29/30C there on Thursday. (26/27C on Friday)

    Three or four days of proper heat down South and two days up here this week with the risk of thunderstorms for some - pretty decent for many of us. (Unless you are not a fan of that weather of course)

    I would rather have the Summer weather of Miami every year but the UK will do for now! ?

    BBC predicting two days -  tommorow and thursday - with highs of 31C. However the weather channel suggests wednesday will reach 30C and thursday 29C before things cool down. Was forecast for 30C for a few days in essex but its gone to the high 20s now.  Thunder for saturday too.

    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? 

    I never have understood those wanting such high temps,utterly pointless,you can't do anything in them and that includes sleep! To some extent its like folk want sub -5c daytime temps in this country,its pointless,we can't do anything really, our infrastructure struggles to cope. Extremes of temp are nothing to relish or yearn for but sadly its the way  we are going.

    Exactly, extreme tempreatures are dangerous, fi things get too cold or too hot people die.

    A heatwave is a heatwave. 3 days >28°C for London.

    What's the point in categorizing weather events otherwise?

    Yes, as i predicted, the crazy high temperatures forecast for the region earlier in the week have been watered down. I suspect somewhere may get to 32c but wont be widespread. Fairly standard June fare for the SE. Two hot days and a rumble of thunder. I do wish they would bring back the laughter emoji.... just for the Mad thread.

    4 possible days of very hot weather. It’s not that bad. Yes it will be uncomfortable to sleep at night, but this is part and parcel of summer, when you get nice weather, and nice being anything exceeding 24c and sunny. 
     

    I’m enjoying it, after the rotten weather of the previous two weeks, which gave too many cloudy or unsettled days. You’ll have your wish come the weekend anyway.

    It’s not crazy, it’s summer. 
     

    Some people just can’t handle a bit of hot weather. I had enough of the 14-20c type weather with rain and cloud.

    25 degrees here today - feels very temperate and not cool like all the others days of the month have felt so far. Certainly nowhere near hot - a nice breeze, low humidity, and I can still wear 2-3 layers without breaking a sweat.

    Here we go again...

    This is my problem with your posts, here's what you said yesterday:

     I understand how some love the 30c temps or find enjoyment in looking for the first of the year,its a weather site after all

    You've contradicted yourself in less than 24 hours.

    It just goes on and on, absolutely no need for this repetition.
