    Strange day, just some fair weather cloud and a moderate westerly breeze, yet the temperatures are doing well, almost at 25c here so feeling warmer than it actually looks.

    25c and the cloud has arrived, so hopefully it wont get any hotter, eagerly waiting for the winds to turn northerly and a day of cooler temps tomorrow, then what looks like a hellish humid day wednesday but to be rewarded with 3 days (according to my always accurate (not) beeb app) of storm after storm.........I know its hilarious, I know we wont get a sniff but its nice to dream.

    We live in hope for storms here as the skies are so open the storms can be spectacular so in our house we will be on storm watch, here's hoping.

    Cloud deck has moved in here too, which has spoiled what was a lovely day until about an hour ago. Still 26c, but now more humid at 53%.

    Clear blue skies from the get-go this morning. At 8.10am, the car temp was already registering 21 degrees after another sleepless night in a house not that keen on cooling down. With Carol forecasting 29 degrees today, my son's college trip to Thorpe Park will be SOOO hot. As those on the forum with special needs kids know, the complexity of theme parks is overwhelming even at my son's age of 21 and it is the first time he has gone without a parent, so I'm hoping the college support worker can keep him safe along with the other vulnerable young adults there. There's been a lot of planning, discussing, bag packing etc and sun cream applied before departure.

    To keep the house cool, we have an elaborate system of closed curtains, windows and blinds for parts of the day, then closed interior doors later on to keep heat coralled to rooms we won't be sleeping in, then open doors and windows after sunset in the hope of a breeze entering (fat chance last night).

    Enjoy the summery weather if you can and I hope some of those storms come off mid-week for those that love them, me included:)

    Same elaborate system to keep the house cool as here! Hope your son’s trip wasn’t too hot.

    Not quite as hot as yesterday, due to increasing cloud. High of 26C at 14:06. Currently 18C but with 70% humidity (following  max of 80% at 04:20), it feels uncomfortable and hotter than 18. Wind 0mph from N with 10 min average of 0.5 mph; 2 minute average of 0.3mph. Pressure 1021.5hPa rising slowly.

    Up to 25.7c in the end, much warmer than the 21c forecast by the MO.

    Currently 18.6c, with a very brisk northerly breeze picked up. Have all the windows open upstairs trying to push the warm air out; doesn’t seem to be working so far! 
     

    What with the humidity, heat and a heavily hayfevered teen sneezing away in the next room, can’t see sleep being easy to come by tonight. Even the kitten is meowing his head off and he’s normally zonked by now.

    I am loving this weather, next best thing to being abroad, I'd happily have this for the rest of the Summer. My careful curtain/window management system is stopping the house from getting unbearably hot, and the washing can dry on the line outside in an hour or so. It is such a shame that it is coming to an end just as I booked a week off work. We were intending to take the motorhome exploring and spend some time at the beach so I feel rather downhearted to have timed things so badly. It's not a complete bust yet but reliable warmth means less contingency planning!

    Hoping for a light show tomorrow night but history says to expect heavy rain, with the lightning probably reserved for Kent & East Anglia ⚡

    More likely turn into a classic kent clipper, and all the good stuff will only be visible if you're on a boat in the north sea

    The numbers are deceptive, apparently it's 21 here in South Woodham but it feels so much warmer, even though it was nearly 29 yesterday.
    I've been sitting in the garden working the past few days.

    Waiting for lightning expected a few days before feels so painful, was getting popcorn but have used up most of my money🤣

    Surprised there’s not more storm chat in here!

    Paul S is going for a more westerly track based on latest runs (post is in the storm thread), Estofex have mentioned MCS heading for SE England.

    Tomorrow afternoon and evening will be radar watching over France for sure!

    Probably because we're expecting the inevitable crushing disappointment? 😂

    I for one will not be prepping my camera and camcorder and organising tripods and whatnot, because every time I do, nothing happens - I much prefer the last minute mad dash out of the front door at midnight....

    17c here at 7am, not looking forward to today, going to be too hot and humid. Yesterday was a perfect summers day, 20c top temp with a lovely cooling breeze, shame all summer days cant be the same. As for storm chance tonight/tomorrow well that looks to likely be a bust for EA, reading through the storm thread, seems its going to be a west is best outlook, you never know we might be in with a small chance of a rumble or two, but Ill believe it when I hear it.
