And please don't fill the thread up with messages stating how much you all love this warm weather, I just don't give a fig!

I am hot, sticky and uncomfortable. The kids are hot, sticky and uncomfortable, the dog is lethargic and grumpy...
I work in a school, everyone is hot, sticky and.... well, you get the idea.

I am all for summer, love it in fact. But this is not summer, this is torture and I gather it is meant to get even hotter next week.....

It turned out lovely today. 24 degrees atm but not so humid even if there is still no breeze.

I t has been 16 degrees in the night since the heatwave began. This morning was lower at 13.7 < hopeful of it cooling down?> The night of rain it was 19confused
It is the lack of a fresh breeze and humidity that is so debilitating.

It has been cooler in Surrey for the past two days. Still hot and sticky on Tuesday but much nicer yesterday and today. Would be quite happy for it to stay like this for the rest of the summer...

Next week looks superhot shock sad

I was afraid of that....

Never mind, will just slowly dissolve in a puddle of unhappy goo....

loads of people have been asking grin

Theres no real sign of any change at the moment, though a little cooler perhaps this weekend. Currently next week looks super hot for most (apart from some coastal areas). There are some hints of changes happening towards the end of the month from the NW, perhaps spreading down further south but that is a long long way off in forecasting time.

The address is......
Dinner is chicken salad. That ok?
Or else I will do you some lamb chops.

It will last until the day the kids break up from school and then it will pour down for 6 weeks grin

BehindLockNumberNine Tue 16-Jul-13 16:47:03

On my way Yams grin

My betting is that it will turn wet and rainy in approximately 3 - 4 weeks time when dd's broken arm is healed enough for her to get back in the sea.

22-24 sounds perfect! I think my baby is melting (real baby not scary doll).

See, where I live, the weather is just right. Not too hot, not too cold, just right! <gloats> smile

RobotBananas Tue 16-Jul-13 16:15:34

Ahhh x posts I hope you're right!

BehindLockNumberNine Tue 16-Jul-13 16:15:08

Ah, ok, will live in hope then, thank you smile

RobotBananas Tue 16-Jul-13 16:15:06

Yes, 16 is probably the lowest it'll get to in the middle oftthe night. Waaa!

I want a great big massive thunderstorm to clear the air, then nice breezy warm weather. That's all!

Ah, see, I read the temp for Weds as 16deg coolest (at night) and 32deg during the day....

BehindLockNumberNine Tue 16-Jul-13 16:10:46

oldbag (not, you, your bag, obviously!), if you click on the NEXT 5 DAYS on your link it shows me that after Saturday the temp creeps up to 31deg for most days that week....

That is what has sent me into a bit of a wibble, am barely coping now.

(Am South East, temp here today 30deg, am really really struggeling to function in this sad)

I don't want grey spittle, far from it. I want sunshine, a light breeze and temps of around 22-24 degrees.

Not this blazing sun, hot air torture I am currently being subjected to.
