I've just been looking at the contingency planners info on the met office. It is impossible to tell at the moment what early summer will look like. We may be falling into a La Nina pattern which would tend to bring cooler more unsettled weather, but the sea temperatures are such that they would imply warmer settled weather.

So there - a pointless thread telling you nothing grin

Are you saying that the Daily Express headline about 90 days of sun might not be true? They always report weather stories rationally wink

it looks like it could be damp for the southern half of England next week, with some thunderstorms possible.

It is going to be a HOT, lovely summer.

I have ordered it.

I have a newborn baby and about an excess of 3.5 stone to contend with this summer. I normally love the heat - even when abroad in excess of 40 degrees I don't normally wilt.

This year unsettled and cool is just what the flab ordered - it can't warm up until I've at least lost half of it and can get into at least some of my clothes.

it looks cooler next week, so hopefully a bit more comfy for you smile thunder storm risk across much of the southern half mon/tues (rather jealous of the storms that parts of the west midlands have been seeing today)

I'm with Salty (except I haven't weighed myself yet).

More like this weekend will suffice, thanks!

there have been three lines of storms, we were between two of them. close enough to see the clouds and get rain but not much thunder.

GloriaSmud Sun 08-May-16 08:51:21

We got storms yesterday afternoon after hitting 25C during the day. I'm told by my parents who are on holiday in Cyprus, that they 'only' reached 21C yesterday grin

The Daily Mail are saying it's going to be the hottest summer for 40 years. hmm

megletthesecond Sun 08-May-16 21:35:52

My allotment is like dust. We could do with some overnight rain this week.

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 09-May-16 07:56:47

silly Daily mail, one day they will be right only cos they say the same thing every year.

It is very dry at present. Almost looking forward to tomorrows rainfall just to damp everything down a bit.

Since the heat haters get the weather they like most of the year I am going to say that they ABU and we in Yorkshire deserve a nice warm summer for a change. About 25 degrees will suffice - not too hot and not too cool.

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 09-May-16 08:07:10

lol Nickname - you got that in nice and early!

24C is my perfect temp. T shirt without boil your head stuff.

NicknameUsed Mon 09-May-16 08:22:32

I'd settle for 24 degrees. We managed 22 degrees yesterday.

I love hot weather, but we very rarely get very hot weather where we live. Also, I work in an over air conditioned office and have a car with air con so I don't usually get the excessive heat that people in London do.

megletthesecond Mon 09-May-16 11:39:14

yy nick the heat haters get their own way 50 weeks a year.

24 will do me, hotter would be nice but then it's a faff making sure the kids don't overheat.

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 09-May-16 16:57:42

weather warning for heavy rain tomorrow for those in the SW as far east as Hampshire.

BalthazarImpresario Mon 09-May-16 18:16:55

OYBBK is the current met office forecast for London overnight 14th into 15th reliable? It's the London moonwalk, I've switched to volunteering so hoping for dry more than when I walked it lol.

NicknameUsed Mon 09-May-16 18:35:36

Heavy rain in South Yorkshire as well, then 11 degrees on Friday sad

Heat haters come to South Yorkshire on Friday.

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 10-May-16 08:02:31

I think so Balthazar - the models seem pretty consistent. There may be a little light rain towards morning, but it doesn't look very likely at the moment.

DomesticAnarchist Tue 10-May-16 16:54:10

Weather warning for heavy rain here in SW from 9 am today till 9am tomorrow.

We've had some drops but nothing that could be called Rain yet. Nice clouds though!

BalthazarImpresario Tue 10-May-16 19:30:14

Thank you OYBBK

Any inkling as to what will happen over the bank holiday weekend yet? Dry / wet ?

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 15-May-16 22:09:24

looks cool but settled at the moment. Similar to this weekend. It's at the end of the forecasting period though so plenty of time for changes.

Coldest Sat 21-May-16 18:58:43

When will this weather turn! I just want to cry. It's so miserable
