As the Sun Newspaper would say: phwoar what a scorcher.  Another baking day here with cloudless skies.  Please can someone move the severe weather zone to Surrey? Thanks!  

Don't worry sir, we'll see our fair share of severe weather this week. Its got to happen. We're long over due.

How can the met office video forecast on YouTube be so wrong?? Where are the scattered showers/thunderstorms that were due to arrive to the south this morning? 

 

It's based on the ever-changing UKV data. Given that, I'm not keen on the way they record forecasts for the following morning on the day before. It's okay if you've got settled weather or a simple, predictable set of Atlantic fronts, but for situations like this with thunderstorms, the forecast is always going to be massively out of date.

My goodness in the last half hour, the humidity and temp has just skyrocketed! Now sweating sitting in the garden. The sky has a classic thundery look to it, like a loaded gun scenario again. 

i hope your right, lol

Agreed, I try and avoid those morning forecasts as they're always uploaded the night before. And 90% of the time it all changes if the conditions are like this.

Nothing happened here last night (other than some distant flashes) and I can almost guarantee nothing will happen here today too. So I'm feeling a bit cranky too.

As for later on in the week, the N is shown to largely become more devoid of activity as it starts to focus down S...

Starting to feel I'll get the worst of both ends with this one.

Exactly this. 
 

The Midlands was touted as the zone to be this week. I’m very sceptical of that, yesterday looks like it was our best chance. Everything was too far west and the rest of the week looks arguably too far south and/or east. 
 

I always find in these scenarios it’s best to be outside or near the hot zone because the nature of storms change quickly and you tend to find the best of the action is never in the exact location models may show, so that’s a positive. 
 

The only reason this now painfully long, boring and pathetically sweaty extended summer (Don’t forget, summer started in April this year)  is even remotely acceptable is with copious classic storms, so all in all. 
 

Nights are noticeably drawing in. Just a couple of weeks until September and then we can stick the word heatwave into our back pockets for another 6/7 months. Bring on the rain and wind, the Atlantic systems, then hopefully a long pipe-bursting winter!

Temp still only at 22.2C, still a small pocket of cloud over Wolves, not shifting too quickly either, hope it isn't going to have any effect on the teams Europa League performance tonight!

Come to Stoke on Trent, were up to a balmy 27C and still rapidly rising 😛

Right. Time to grab today by the scrough of the neck and get something out of this period of exceptional weather. Any developments I can see, or being reported anywhere in the Midlands or to my South, I want to be straight onto it. Appreciate local reports so much, very vital and useful to the storm chasing trade! 

Love the forecasters on here, and the European ones too. I honestly think we would be lost without them. iPhones and the met office and even the BBC at times fall so far behind the mark in these setups, it’s beyond belief. I think there should be a dedicated spin off channel for severe events, like the weather channel in the states.

Will keep you updated if I see anything over my area. Always interesting to know whats going on in different areas. And you are totally right those apps always fall behind, we need some centralised way to report on severe weather.

Currently 28.3*C in Bristol, dew point is at 19.7*C Humidity at 60%

Air feels super dense and sticky , feels hard to breath.

I am sure we will hit 30*C today as temp is rocketing up.

Any chance of thunderstorms in north somerset this evening or night? 🤞

Down on the coast in East Sussex It was 22 here at 9am, by ten it was 27 by 10.39 it was 30 and now its 28.....humidity 46% dew point 18. 
sky still pretty much clear apart from classic sea haze to my west.. still feels like I’m at melting point though. This heat has been relentless.
