Warm night (although nothing out of the ordinary) down to 18.7c.

Gray start but cloud has now broken up and we have sunshine. Hoping for a decent afternoon and especially evening so can get out and enjoy a Friday night in a field!

22.5c so far - hopefully 23 or 24c...

the rain lasted probably 2-3 minutes.

 

Now clouds are light sun peakng out every now and then but more importantly its suddenly getting hot.  This is going to be way hotter than wednesday.  So another underestimated forecast.

 

Room temp yesterday hit 27C when I went bed in late afternoon (before I shut windows and door)  its now 26.3 and not even midday.  So I am not even convinced will be lower temp than yesterday now.

Breezy with sunny intervals here after a cloudy start. It's currently 23.3°C, after an overnight low of 17.5°C. Despite it hardly being cold, it definitely feels very fresh today after a day like yesterday!

Partly cloud and 25.6c now - some 3c higher than predictions and ~2c above official stations around me. I was ~2c below official stations yesterday. Really not quite understanding the mysteries of my temperature recordings...

How are you measuring Stevenson screen or electronic station. Or dodgy outside thermometer on the wall?

Nothing fancy - just the wireless weather station thermometer wedged between the house wall and a drain pipe at approx 1m in height.

I think the house might influence it somewhat but not really sure...

basically now I see clouds in distance.

 

From my window the clouds are moving from left to right, I checked using my phone's compass the bearing, so the clouds are going from south to north, which makes sense as thats the jetstream direction.

 

So frustrating, I can see clouds in distance, but I am too far east of them, and they moving north not east.  Leicester out of reach as usual, the clouds we had here were gone by midday.

 

My parents on the east coast in norfolk however say its heavy rain there.  As I was going to say with todays hot temps the jetstream is more west than predicted and the east still has hot spanish air but my parents weather doesnt back that up.  Although my mother said dispite the rain its very hot there.

 

But yeah that cloud in the distance has been there almost all day moving north I think was one short spell I seen it broken up, its thick heavy cloud.  But overhead here its clear blue sky.  So whoever is under that cloud had nice cool weather all day.

 

I dont think its quite as hot as yesterday but its defenitly a hot day.  my indoor temp is hotter than yesterday, but is more of a breeze (slight) coming through the window.

Radar is alarming me - don't want rain now. Been in a office all day with sunshine and now about to set off for a field to have a fun evening out and last thing we need is rain now! 

26c max today now dropped to 24.7c. Been another lovely summers day!

Last night was exceptionally warm with a temp of 22.6C at 2am and minimum of 18.3C, making it the warmest in August since 1991 and second warmest in 34 years.

Are you still using the Davis? It has a good shield but I wouldnt be suprised if your readings are being affected by the house (higher mins at night, lower maxes in shade and higher in sunshine) if it is so close. 

 

Is there anywhere it can go thats in a more open area?

Bottesford - do you live near Nottingham city centre? Nottingham Weather Centre reached 31C (rounded) yesterday and that's on the outskirts of the city, so I think you will have reached similar if not higher values?
