sorry for my absence in the weather threads this week or so. A lot of real life going on. Dundee though had a whopper of a hail storm on Thursday.
Anyway, this weekend as no doubt you'll have seen gets really rather warm. Some parts will see 30C by Sunday/Monday. oof. Along with that hot weather there is a real risk of some good storms on Monday. When and where.....? No idea yet. A cold front moving south will herald more normal June temperatures and as that comes across the hot humid air, theres' potential for a good degree of instability. More details to come......
Saw that we're getting some rather warm hot weather tomorrow and Monday. DD2's going on a school residential Monday-Tuesday, with lots of outside activities, so DH's off to load up with suncream for her to take! I'll look forward to some hopefully good thunderstorms when it all cools down.
I think that they will be severe enough to issue warnings closer to the time I'm afraid. As long as you dont have to circle too much you should be ok(!) (but I'd take some tablets along with you just in case!) I think (and could be very very wrong!) that the storms will be more of a southern affair so you may miss the worst of the bumps. Monday will feel horrid before the cooler air arrives. Really hot and muggy.
Really decent lifted index centred around central eastern England (bedford/cambridge/Leicester) but putting much of EA/SE in the firing line for tomorrow afternoon according to GFS. Bracknell fax charts show a trough over that area at the same time. Coupled with the very high temperatures it looks really interesting to my amateur eyes.
We are up to 24.8C but I have to say in the sun it feels roasting! (my rain gauge thermometer which is in full sunlight - ridiculous but it comes with the gauge says 31C. it goes to show the difference you get between proper readings and random out in the sun ones)
Not heading for the carwash with everything then, manky?! Our car temp says it's 29C as well but my little terracotta thermometer in the garden says it's 30-31C. Was going to have curry for dinner tonight; maybe that isn't such a good idea!
