Hottest Day this year ?

Expected on Tuesday and/or possibly Wednesday, with temperatures over 33ºC predicted for Southern UK.

 

Time to make those Ice Cubes, Close the curtains, prepare drinks in the Fridge, test the fans, etc...

 

If it get really hot, you could always sit in the car, in the shade, with the Air Con / Climate Control on !!

 

 Worst time of day though, trying to sleep in the heat !

 

Then.....

 

Overnight...

Thunderstorms, Lightning & possible Floods next day.

 

I love British Weather.

 Have fun in the UK !!

 

PS:

The same thing happened last year too !!

And the year before!!

Depends on where you live in the UK.

According to the forecast Tuesday is going to be the sunniest day in Cumbria !

Sure it might be warmer on Wednesday but the forecast is for thunderstorms.

Re: Hottest Day this year ?

Us two wrinklies are going to keep well in the shade, as far as possible. The choice position looks like our downstairs loo: no windows and we can sit there with the blower turned on. One of us will need to vacate at critical times for the other though.Grin

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

We keep a couple of large metal flasks filled with a cold non alcoholic drink,  with loads of Ice Cubes, by the Bed, for when it is really too hot to sleep comfortably.

 

Glass interior flasks sometimes shatter as the ice cubes coalesce.

 

Our Cottage in the Lakes has really thick walls, > 1 metre, and is lovely and cool in the Summer, helped by shade from the Trees.

 

 

In Barbados, the locals go into the sea, up to their necks, to keep cool.

It took a while to notice many were in pairs, facing each other, as they bobbed up & down with the gentle motion of the waves !!!

Re: Hottest Day this year ?

Still hovering around 19 degrees around here at midnight, good job I have my fan in the bedroom running, stirs the air up nicely when the weather's warm enough to be a sweaty sleep... Grin

Re: Hottest Day this year ?

BBC sez it's 17 degrees here right now based on a weather station up in Gateshead/Newcastle, 20 miles away, WeatherUnderground with a local weather station about 2 miles away says 18.6 Degrees, I'm inclined to believe the more local numbers... Grin

Re: Hottest Day this year ?

Just when I thought it was safe in the loft...

My new router is clocking 60°C up there... now I need to pull out the soldering iron and put a fan in it!

No idea what temperature is outside, but the cat is sleeping in the sunniest window and I can smell singeing...
