Something to really watch. GFS model is really looking a bit crackers next week with high temps of perhaps 35c mid week and night minima in the mid 20s. I'll post more tomorrow, but it doesn't look like the traditional school holiday cool down

Yes I saw that, much as I love the heat I know a lot of folk don't.

Doesn’t look like Cornwall will be affected much?
Are you able to promise that whatever happens it will stay dry? Pleeeease!

Paul Hudson is forecasting 26 degrees for us. Perfect smile

How about Norfolk

I’ve just been worrying about this, no air con at work, Tube to work on the older deeper lines, flat hotter than hell.

Is it looking certain?

Mum has more hospital tests this week, I really hope there are no call backs (we have been getting urgent call backs) for the heatwave. Also she has heart problems so I will have to make sure she’s okay.

Oh. Great. I have booked the week off work to get a load of work done in the garden and have a massive clearout & change-around in the house. I'm going to be dripping in sweat aren't I?!

ExpletiveDelighted Wed 17-Jul-19 22:53:53

Oh, I do hope not. This week has been plenty warm enough for me.

We need to cut the last of the hay @OhYouBadBadKitten when I asked you about this last year it triggered the heatwave so saying nothing... just watching.

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Wed 17-Jul-19 23:01:05

Well of course there’ll be a heatwave, I’m on holiday, abroad. I fly back in late on the 29th, so normal service should resume on the 30th wink.

TapasForTwo Wed 17-Jul-19 23:05:51

So, it's a heatwave in London, and summer for everyone else then?

TokyoSushi Wed 17-Jul-19 23:09:57

Checking in, thank as always OYBBK, it'll soon be time for snow watch!

sweetkitty Wed 17-Jul-19 23:12:47

Raining in Scotland as usual then?

tunabakedpotato Wed 17-Jul-19 23:23:35

@sweetkitty my thoughts exactly grin

Place marking for news.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 18-Jul-19 07:25:47

I'm out this morning, promise to update properly later, hard to see details on my phone. But the hot weather is still there, starting on Monday, by Tuesday into Wednesday everywhere looks very hot away perhaps from Western coasts. Some very high overnight temps. After Wednesday it looks as though temps will fall back to more moderate temperatures. So it may be a short lived heatwave. More later smile

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 18-Jul-19 07:26:47

Rosa, I hope it's not too bad for your Mum. It's good if you can plan ahead.

magimedi Thu 18-Jul-19 07:50:39

Also place marking.

Supersimpkin Thu 18-Jul-19 07:55:07

Me too. My Aged Parents with dicky tickers and contrary ways no doubt will react to news by planning to climb trees in Hyde Park, or similar.

Uk holiday booked for us next week so I'll be happy for a heatwave!

cardyop Thu 18-Jul-19 09:34:03

Placemarking. Hope it's not the start of 3 months of madness or something!

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 18-Jul-19 20:46:52

The models are swinging quite wildly between moderate warmth, extreme heat for a couple of days, extreme heat through most of next week. Take your pick. It's possible the all time July record could fall. Again.

There's also potential for some potent thunderstorms. So I can't give specifics I'm afraid, either for exact location (but it does look especially severe around London) or how long it may last but it is a week to watch. If you need to buy a fan, or paddling pool then it might be a good time (but don't blame me if it goes tits up grin )

I'll post another update tomorrow.

My local London forecast has now amended to say it will be about 32 Mon to Wed, then storms and drop to 22 on Thursday. That’s better than what it said yesterday.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 18-Jul-19 21:00:57

I wouldn't place too much store in that at present Rosa. It's better to be prepared.
