I thought I heard someone on the radio this morning saying that it might reach 36 degrees somewhere at the end of next week. Was this a hallucination? Was surrounded by noisy DCs so couldn't concentrate properly on this crucial news flash
We have 25 in the shade and no breeze. Too warm for me to do any gardening or activity. 36 would be intolerable if no fresh breeze and humid again as it was before. Was fine this morning. Haven't heard anything. Felt quite Septemberish this morning at 6.30, and the sun doesn't have its intense heat today.
The chart I just looked at gave a 24C for next Thursday and that was only for the middle of the country. The only places I can see 36C is over Europe way. Does seem to be cooling off a bit at the moment though ~ my weather station says it was 8C at 5.54am this morning
It had better bloody not come near me we're only just letting the fan get some peace and using part of the duvet again! Saying that I'll not be pregnant next week so maybe I could handle it .. and dd2 does have some lovely summer dresses/short sets I'd like to get use of before she grows unless she is too big to begin with
Gloria and OYBBK thanks for looking at the models/charts. If I remember correctly, the first I heard about the last heatwave was a thread OYBBK started only a couple of days before it arrived. So it's not surprising really that this is too far off to be accurately predictable. I just hope that whoever started the rumour turns out to be correct. It's amazing that it gets quoted in the media as fact when there appears to be no factual basis for it at the moment.
I'm in Scotland and they said on the radio the other day that experts were predicting the heatwave would return and we may not have had the hottest day of the year yet. No timescales were given unfortunately though.
Which experts is the question you have to ask yourself. Just think about how inaccurate some of the tabloids are and you'll know the standard of expert they are bringing out. Interestingly though, the met office are talking about 'locally warmer' weather for a time in the south later in the month.
