The sun has got his hat on
Hip Hip Hip Hooray....

Well not quite, but come tomorrow and onwards. Models show it hanging on right through the coming week and into the next shock Potential for storms perhaps later in the modelling period.

Not quite nice for all, especially to start where western areas and Scotland could see much cooler weather. South eastern and central England are currently looking to be the favoured hot spots. Sunday looks to reach mid to high 20's but cooling off a bit on Monday.

It actually looks like the best weather we've had for a few years I think (if you arent about to explode with baby or a hayfever sufferer). Happy days!

Will it carry on the week after next? please say yes.

Im packing all weekend for a house move <weeps>

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 04-Jul-13 15:56:44

At the moment that is what the models appear to indicate, through to the 17th, then the gfs ensembles start to split a bit but that's really far in forecasting land.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 04-Jul-13 15:58:04

Angryfeet, you should postpone til the first day of the English school holidays, then it will all go pear shaped grin

I'm going camping on the 12th. I'm excited now. [Smile]

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 04-Jul-13 16:01:48

Nicely timed! (Though watch out for the odd thunderstorm by then, depending on where you are)

Back2Two Thu 04-Jul-13 16:07:48

You can all thank a certain store for not delivering my garden furniture. It was suppose to arrive 1st July, but its being put back to I dont know when so therefore when we do eventually get it, it will pour down so for now while we are without garden furniture it will be absolutely bloody lovely for everyone. grin

I'm 32 weeks pregnant. That'll teach me for having a summer baby grin

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 04-Jul-13 18:15:20

oh no lilleth! please, when it arrives send it back!!!

Please please tell me that pollen levels are going to suddenly diminish massively!

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 04-Jul-13 18:29:44

Sadly i can't sad You can get a 5 day pollen forecast here (select pollen). Not explored how to get it for a more extended period of time but I'm afraid high pressures tend to act as a trap for pollutants and pollen, so it is unlikely to improve rapidly.

The air was so humid at 3pm, but at 6pm blue sky changed it to fresh and clean . We did get 26 degrees and mainly cloudy all day until after 5pm. Now completely clear sky.

Bit of a pain having to keep watering pots and shallow beds, but that is the con for the pro of sunny and warm days.
Just hope the humidity keeps low as only light winds are forecast for the hot week-end.

LillethTheCat Thu 04-Jul-13 20:27:36

Don't worry kitten I'm not expecting it in time for this summer

scripsi Thu 04-Jul-13 20:35:31

Thanks kitten I am considering wearing swimming goggles all the time, to save my poor swollen eyes.

GloriaSmud Thu 04-Jul-13 21:01:00

Oh the joy ~ sun, warmth and (finally!) summer has arrived <joins children in the paddling pool>

My raspberries are ripening at last!

DD went out to pick some for her supper, it's like the Famous Five round here grin.

HesterShaw Thu 04-Jul-13 22:38:26

Did you have them with pork pie and lashings of ginger beer? grin

digerd Fri 05-Jul-13 07:19:59

I heard warnings of high UV rays this weekend - so lashings of sun cream for the sun worshippers.
I'm in the dance hall for 2 hours this morning with air-conditioning. Worried about little furry dog at 3 pm and really should take her out now - am thinking about it as have my hair in rollers and don't normally get ready until 9.15 after reading the newspaper and doing 2 crosswords hmm
