Okay, so i was going through some analogues and 1990 stuck out at me so whilst it certainly won't last i thought i'd take a look at that wonderful summer since i was only 1 at the time.

Supposedly parts of the UK went around a month without any rainfall in the south east and it culminated in 37C at Cheltnam..

Several charts which stick out at me are...

The temperature reached 34.4C at Leeds Weather Centre on the 2nd, 33.2C on the 3rd, with an overnight low of 19.4C. I'd like to see a repeat, purely from a meteorological interest point of view, as opposed to actually enjoying such temperatures.

I'd hate that minima but i'd be happy with that maxima if i could just lounge about.

I have to say that the 3rd August chart is probably the most synoptically perfect chart i've seen.
