Looks like a fair few have bitten the dust already! 22.2c at Porthmadog today going a fair bit above expected. My guess looks too low too, I think 23-24c is more likely now.

Yes, I can now see somewhere or a few places reaching those temps at some point this coming week.

Looking at GFS for this coming week, the 850HPa temps look surpressed to around +5c. and the temp forecasted is 21c for Wednesday. Accounting for a typical GFS underplay, I'll add a few degrees.

So my guess is 22.9c Wednesday London.

I'll keep the thread updated with the latest daily maxes each day.

I have attached a full list of entries.

There were 61 entries - with a (mean) average of 22.9c

Looking at Weatheronline (unofficial) today, a few sites got to 20c, with tomorrow looking a few degrees warmer.
