    So after there being no day in July where anywhere in the UK reached over 30 degrees (last happened in 2011) on the very last day its suddenly 37.8C :scared:



    The hottest day of the year so far and the 3rd hottest day on record.

    105 was the official temp in SLC today, breaking a record from 2008 and setting the highest temp since 2013. It's also only the 13th time since records have been kept that SLC officially hit 105.

    Not going to complain though since in four months it'll be cold and snowy.

    A nice typical Belgian summer day. Clouds, lots of sun but still not too warm compared to the day before yesterday.

    The UK could potentially have its hottest day ever in the coming days breaking the 38.5C (101.3F) record set on the 25th July 2019 in Cambridge. Temperatures are predicted to hit 39C or even 40C (104F).

    Between 35°C and 40°C today.


    EDIT: 39°C to be exact and not in the sun.

    If it's Heathrow again I'll just laugh!

    The BBC are foretelling the doom of sleepless 'tropical' nights:
    First, 20C+ is not 19C+, that's cheating!

    Second, where are these "some areas"? I looked at their own forecasts and could only find that Heathrow and Ashford (in terms of forecasting, effectively the same place) are forecast to be 20C tonight and Tuesday night (18, 19, 19 for the nights between). Everywhere else I looked is forecast lower, no other 20s. At best you could describe it as "one area" (yet smaller than most counties), but really it's just one location :rolleyes:

    For reference, I'm not all that far from Heathrow, as far inland, and the forecast here is 18, 16, 18, 17, 18. Should be OK as long as the house and drive don't soak up too much heat during the day... in the hot spell earlier this year a couple of nights didn't drop below 26C (on the wall outside) - that was uncomfortable.

    These kinds of conditions are typical during the Australian summer.

    Previous years, actually as long as I can remember, I never mind temperatures above 30°C but this year, I do. Maybe my ego is going away? Ego of not wanting to admit that 30°C is too hot.

    It's going to be a lot more than 30°C this weekend and next week until Wednesday.

    A Heathrow record is always kinda cheating,

    Miles of tarmac with jet engines near a major city, how could it possibly be hotter!

    Yeah I also saw that, the 'doom' is what half of the world have each and every night :lol:

    My ego is back because I have no problems with the 39°C. :p

    We had hail. It stopped a few minutes ago. I hope the temperatures will drop below 30°C the next coming days.

    Something tells me you'd probably rather have @gnomefromnome's weather right now. :lol:

    Is smoke weather? Because that's the weather here today. I can't even see the mountains it's so smoky, and the PPM is supposed to be something like 200 by mid-day which puts in firmly in the category of "unhealthy for everyone". I had to run to the pharmacy this morning and just the walk to my car made my eyes, nose, and throat sting. It's sufficiently gross outside. Couple that with 100+ temps and inside in the A/C sounds fantastic.

    I think it is close to 30°C. A few clouds and some wind. Maybe the weather is changing?

    The smoke situation on the west coast is crazy...

    If it is that bad where you are @Joey D , I would not fancy being in between San Jose and LA right now...

    Ya this is what it looked like this morning here:

    [​IMG]

    I talked to a buddy of mine who lives near LA and he said it was similar there as well, it also smells awful due to all the smog and smoke mixing together.

    I really wish the government took this stuff seriously. I get many of these wildfires were naturally causes due to lightning, but many are human causes. Also, states and the BLM could do a better job of doing prescribed burns to minimize the fire risk.
