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.

(Hope everything's OK.)

Hope you're ok, Kitten.
I await the warm/sun spell with interes - it hasn't stopped raining in Devon for six months (ish) grin

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 25-Jun-11 08:40:00

grin Sue, you must be a good swimmer by now! Gloria, your poor dd! she'll be half baked Monday.

Things are ok, thank you both. Got some big projects on that are proving to be more stressful and time consuming than they ought to be, but it's just a case of ploughing through.

GloriaSmud Sat 25-Jun-11 09:41:59

LOL at 'half baked!' All 3 DDs have got DH's colouring (blond hair/blue eyes/light skin) so all end up looking like this >> angry when they go out in the sun!

Looking forward to a bit of heat. grin

Poor DS1 is at Cub Camp this weekend, when we dropped him off last night cars were stuck in the mud at the car parks, and it was still raining.

It rained all night, and they are in tents. grin.

Pick up is tomorrow afternoon, just in time for the sunshine!

mankyscotslass Sat 25-Jun-11 09:47:02

and i hope things settle for you soon, oybbk

GloriaSmud Sat 25-Jun-11 11:12:16

manky, sounds like everything will need sluicing down when they get back! Perhaps stand everything (including cubs!) in a carwash, that'll do it!

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 25-Jun-11 11:25:48

That sounds like a good plan Gloria - I pity you Manky!

Thank you smile Taking the afternoon off from being a responsible person - bit of food shopping, watch dd riding and that's about it smile

Hello there OYBBK, how bad do you reckon the storms are going to be? I'm flying into Brum on Monday night from Brisbane and not very good at motion sickness! envy

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 25-Jun-11 14:08:47

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.

mankyscotslass Sat 25-Jun-11 14:20:39

It's already changing to being very muggy here now, though still drizzling on and off.

Humidity on weather station at 61%

And the car wash for the cub seems like a great idea! grin

Metoffice have issued a Heat Watch Sunday~Tuesday and weather warnings for thunderstoms, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Sun's just started breaking through here and it's beginning to get warm.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 26-Jun-11 09:22:45

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.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 26-Jun-11 09:23:47

cross post! <Takes a bow> hadnt seen the met office warnings!

mankyscotslass Sun 26-Jun-11 10:12:28

Gorgeous here this morning

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 26-Jun-11 13:14:06

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)

meditrina Sun 26-Jun-11 13:42:52

It's warmed up here dramatically. We're all down with summer colds and not really appreciating it.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 26-Jun-11 14:13:38

oh, that is miserable meditrina.

mankyscotslass Sun 26-Jun-11 14:27:54

Temo gauge says 29C here, not in full sunlight. 59% humidity.

It's hot and humid. It keeps clouding over then going really bright again.

Just as well really, DS1 is back from camp, and I have had to put his good walking boots and his heavy duty wellies out in the garden to try and dry the inch thick mud off!

Not to mention the washing he brought home. <shudder>

GloriaSmud Sun 26-Jun-11 16:34:53

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!

mankyscotslass Sun 26-Jun-11 16:43:02

DH did drive up to a car wash and tell him he was going in. He didn't take it too well. grin

It probably just as well the cubs aren't on camp this afternoon, can you imagine 100s of cubs with heat stroke?

At least I have been able to get all his kit washed and dried, even though some of it took 2 washes and I've got the machine running a rinse cycle empty to try and clean the drum after it all!

GloriaSmud Sun 26-Jun-11 17:01:05

Says something when you have to give the inside of a washing machine a wash as well!

Geordieminx Sun 26-Jun-11 17:04:41

Overcast and windy in Glasgow most of the weekend. Quite muggy out there now... Could do with a storm

Twit Sun 26-Jun-11 17:12:52

32.4 here with 46 % humidity. I'm not particularly enjoying it. I'm on my bed under the fan with multiple glasses of ice water and a water spray to try and keep cooler.
