Predict Scotland’s maximum temperature: 17-20 July

    It’s looking increasingly likely Scotland will see its highest temperatures of the summer so far between the 17th and 20th July. It’s possible we could see temperatures challenge the July record high of 32.8 or the all time record of 32.9. It looks like much of southern Scotland at least will experience uppers of 15c+ and perhaps 20c+ for a time. There’s still uncertainty concerning the extent, duration, timing and intensity of the airmass but if the GFS 0z is on to something we could see widespread temperatures in the high twenties next Monday and Tuesday with some places creeping into the low thirties. 

    With the UK record likely to be challenged and possibly Ireland’s as well, use this thread to guess the maximum temperature for Scotland between Sunday 17th and Wednesday 20th July - if you wish you can guess the location and the date.

    I'm going for new Scots record of 33.4 at Floors Castle (nearest to current holder Greycrook (?)).

    This is still provisional 34.8C for Charterhall on Tuesday. Looking at the other regions around Scotland these are the top values over the two days

    Eskdalemuir 32.3C Tues

    Aboyne 31.8C Tues

    Aviemore 29.29C Monday

    LERWICK! 23C Tues, the record is 23.4C

    Drumalbin 29.5C Tuesday

    Leuchars 31.3 Monday

    Oh my, not just beaten the record, but beaten it, put it in the boot of a car, taken it to the firing range, loaded it into a cannon and fired it across a playing field and then found the shell and melted it down to make a knife and fork to eat the record bit by bit.

    Congratulations to Winter's Tale.  Right site and only 0.1 deg out is amazing.  I was right site but not ambitious enough in my guess.  Bigger bung needed to Head Gardener next time!
