Just seen this prediction from my usual weather guy on Twitter.
Any thoughts?

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 27-Jun-19 19:31:05

Where are you seeing 40C? It won't reach that.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 27-Jun-19 19:32:43

London is likely to see 33-34C.

Is it just Saturday that will see the massive temperature spike, OYBBK? That's what the BBC weather forecast says, but it seems slightly odd given the temperatures on the continent.

RosaWaiting Thu 27-Jun-19 22:03:43

I'm also wondering re the temp spike, though all forecasts do have Sunday as much cooler. It just seemed bit odd.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 27-Jun-19 22:14:46

It is. We are just right on the edge and catch a little pulse.

Leftielefterson Thu 27-Jun-19 22:15:02

aaahhh London’s gonna be fun on the weekend then!

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 27-Jun-19 22:18:55

I'd definitely walk rather than take any of the older tube lines.

RosaWaiting Thu 27-Jun-19 22:21:08


I'd have to walk 13 miles if I didn't take the Tube. Doesn't seem very practical in 34c.

so we really can hope for a cooler Sunday? That's grand.

That is a bit far! grin I'd more envisioned avoiding taking the bakerloo line in central london.

Fun link about temperature on underground lines:

The Metoffice are giving us 32C for here (Leicester) tomorrow and then a much more pleasant 22C on Sunday.

New temperature record in France.

OhYouBadBadKitten Fri 28-Jun-19 14:36:58

It's going to feel a bit crazy tomorrow. 35c in central London now I think.

Take it easy tomorrow everyone.

OhYouBadBadKitten Fri 28-Jun-19 14:50:22

I was hoping the wind would be settling tomorrow, but it's still going to be gusting to 20mph, so it's going to be extra dehydrating. plus really annoying when trying to sit out with a newspaper

Supersimpkin Fri 28-Jun-19 16:22:25

Um, might the wind make things feel a little cooler?

OYBK - you may not know the answer event tho you are a genius - why do the BBC think they can keep not mentioning that climate change is here and now and causing all this?

CassianAndor Fri 28-Jun-19 16:24:39

That's not what the BBC are saying for London - up to 33 tomorrow and them plummeting straight back down on Sunday, thank God, low 20s for next week.

OhYouBadBadKitten Fri 28-Jun-19 19:02:57

Not sure who you are disagreeing with Cassian?

The wind will make things feel cooler if you aren't in a sheltered spot. That is true smile I was just feeling a bit annoyed by the wind being super slammy with my doors! But I think people will probably therefore underestimate how hot it is and not drink enough.

It's a good question about the BBC. I think it's because it's very hard to prove that any particular single event is down to climate change. So while we can say it probably is, that's because we are looking at the increasing number of records being broken and it's the accumulation of extreme events that point to climate change.

It does need to be said explicitly and loudly though that this is climate change and these extreme events will keep occurring. It will cause deaths, it will destabilise populations and if we don't do something about it now it will get much worse.

wind will evapourate the sweat/moisture quicker as well.

Supersimpkin Fri 28-Jun-19 20:34:53

Thanks a million OYBK.

On another matter, I am desperately trying to persuade my 82-yr-old mother who has Parkinson's and is exhausted after a family trauma not to travel by herself via public transport to a field in Hampshire 160 miles away tomorrow (wedding). I can't go with her. I'm pretty sure she'll keel over, but she's a wicked old trout and determined. Can anyone think of anything to put her off?

Cassort Fri 28-Jun-19 20:36:37

My phone weather widget is telling me 33 degrees tomorrow; 10 degrees warmer than today. Is this right?

Cassort Fri 28-Jun-19 20:37:58

Super - make sure she brings a few bottles of water with her if she's determined to go.

Supersimpkin Fri 28-Jun-19 21:19:09

Thanks, I will. grin

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 29-Jun-19 00:29:20

Thereabouts Cassort.

BlackeyedGruesome Sat 29-Jun-19 10:47:03

I had to shut the windows at 10.30 as it was warmer outside than in. Curtains will be shut as soon as the sun comes round.

BlackeyedGruesome Sat 29-Jun-19 11:00:03

I have already stripped the wallpaper on the one bit of wall that was the next bit. I need to wash up before it gets too hot in the kitchen.

blamethecat Sat 29-Jun-19 11:04:46

I am feeling quite dense by not understanding how the temperature can spike by around 10 degrees for one day ?
