Autumn's on the Way - Gales Predicted

At Wimbledon yesterday we had a temperature of 79ºF.  I was on Court One most of the day and sitting in the sun for a good few hours where the sun temperature was 100ºF.   It will certainly be hot on Centre Court on Sunday if Murray reaches the final.  
Currently here in Essex it's 71ºF.
What is the temperature going to get to elsewhere in the UK?

Looks like we are in for a lengthy hot spell though but anything above 70 and I'm indoors.

Can't imagine what it must be like in the Phoenix Arizona heatwave of 116°F.

Re: We're Having a Heatwave.......

Phoenix is a dry desert heat, you don't really notice it quite as much as when you have humidity thrown into the mix, that and they all have air-con inside every building. Having been in 120 F Las Vegas heat I've experience of this, plus 90 F high humidity in New York (now that was unpleasant!).

Re: We're Having a Heatwave.......

My last visit to LV we had temperatures in excess of 100ºF but it was so dry that it wasn't unpleasant.  Florida on the other hand gets very humid in the summer and all you want to do is stay out of the heat.
