We'll need to practice that particular manoeuvre before we head on into winter, Mark... What with all the talk of 'low solar minima' doing the rounds, we could well be in for a toy-throwing spectacular...?!:gathering:

What are you on about?

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 replied to this post before but it got removed for some reason. But my point still stands that the fact that you're worrying over one day of 25-30C in high summer is laughable really. We should realistically expect at least one such day in late July/early August even in the north. If you are that worried about wearing a mask in such high temperatures, then I suggest you do your shopping on another day, online or in the morning or the evening.

 

And I bet older folk would struggle a lot more on icy/snowy pavements and bitterly cold conditions in winter than hot weather for a day or two. The former is a lot more dangerous for the elderly.

You still don't understand my post do you? Please just read it again, it had nothing to do with MY shopping for goodness sake! And yes older folk do struggle on ice and snow, i fully get that, why are you comparing my post to that, very strange, whats your point?

Anyway, my point is that we've had virtually ZERO warmth up north and you are fretting about one hot day because you don't like it and it will make it harder for you/others because of having to wear a mask in the heat. Which is silly really because anyone who doesn't like it can just avoid shopping on that day if they want to (or early in the morning or late in the evening when it's cooler).

Its pointless carrying on  this discussion, the meaning of my post was clear. There was a reason your first post was removed. I had my response removed as well. Better leave it at that. Its only weather after all

Okay, but worrying about one moderately hot day in late July is a bit silly really.

Hi sorry, I did not get to see your full response before your post was removed, only the bit about "throwing toys out of a pram" that someone else quote. 

 

Yes, you're right, it is only weather, I guess we should just accept our differences, I like it warm, you like it chilly/cold. I keep thinking about summer 2018. I wish every summer was like that.

No worries, sorry for any argument, hope you enjoy the warm spell coming up.

Good. Now let's see if we can go from now to Friday without whingeing about a 'yet to happen' hot day in high summer lol.

I think it's quite funny that I will have gone the whole of July without surpassing 25C, then on the final today be pushing 30C! If it lasts into the Satuday, it will craftily ensure that we do get 30C in all three summer months even if there was a lot of rubbish in between.

Not even reached 20C all month here, and I don't live that far away from Markyo. That's why I had a bit of a bee in my bonnet about him moaning about one possible 25C+ day, when we've had such a cool month, but anyway at the end of the day, we all have different preferences and don't want to get into an argument or get into trouble with the cat person who sometimes tells people off so I'll leave it at that.

Indeed. I'd love for you to spend a month down here and see how you rate it as a summer month. I personally think it's been largely disappointing with some short respectable periods like earlier in the week. No doubt, many people from the NW would think it'd have been a very decent summer month compared to up there.

You're probably right. I don't ask for too much. As long as it's in the low 20's most days with a fair amount of sunshine and not too much rain, I'd be satisfied.

No it won't, we still have August to come and it would need to reach 30c then as well.

2015 was another summer that had 30c in every month, with a load of rubbish inbetween.

Nowhere near as bad as summer 2007, but definitely on a level with 2011 and 12.

We’ve been lacking a proper 2-3 week hot or warm sunny spell, which summers of 2017/18/19 all had at some point between June and August.

This is probably the worst summer since 2015, unless August improves.

Well, we actually managed 20C  whoopie doo.  Mostly cloudy (naturally) with sunny intervals.  Next load of rain expected overnight.

Same here yesterday but temps only reached about 17/18°C. Also had a few showers as well. Only about 1 hour of sun and 9 mm of rain. Pretty poor. The wait for the first 20°C day goes on here. Which looks like being Thursday with 22°C forecast (though cloudy). 

 

Today its overcast, damp and windy and quite humid but not as wet as forecast at least.

 

Edit: Forget that, absolutely hammering it down now.

If its any consolation the summer here has been poor to up to now...just heading into literally our first warm spell of the entire year..could breach 30c some point this week..for one of the sunniest cities in Canada its been an exceptionally cloudy year thus far
