The weather forecast for some parts of the UK next week includes daily maximum temperatures of over 30C. :wacko:

How hot do you think it will get in Norwood this summer?

I went for 35 degrees, but that's probably wrong seeing as it's already pushing 30 and only the beginning of June. I love this hot weather so the sunnier the better as far as I'm concerned.

Well I'm working in central London, so who knows how high it can go, though bizzarely the BBC is showing only 28....

I thought there was another broken water main on one of the roads near me - I could hear all the cars sloshing through the puddles. It wasn't water though... the tarmac had melted! B)

Rather a lot of rain this morning but was it enough to clear the muggy atmosphere?

It's like Andalucia in Southwark today (without the orange trees and the Mediterranean diet).

Public transport is an endurance test. Does anybody know when we can expect it to peak and then revert back to rain and general greyness?

three or more four more days of the pina coladas, Uncle Wilf, with maybe some thunderstorms from tomorrow night onwards. Getting more and more humid, but then Friday should be sunny and much cooler and more pleasant. B)

Yes, Bermondsey is the Southwark equivalent of Granada and I'm working in the "Alhambra". B) B)

I agree with Andreas - weather has peaked and temperatures are dropping off now. Looking forward to a slightly cooler weekend.

PS Why is there always loads of traffic when its baking hot???

I'm predicting 34.2 degrees will be the highest temperature this summer.

Elephant & Castle is just like Seville.
The Metropolitan Tabernacle is the Cathedral and the Sundial Cafe is just like one of those wonderful tapas bars. Honestly it is. Just like it.

Are there any statistics to show that workforce productivity in London drops in these temperatures?
And is it noticeably hotter the closer to the centre of London you get?

Sitting in an office by Telecom Tower and with the temperature already 32 I would have to say yes...

Where does this apply though?

I'm pretty sure the temperature in my car when I got into it on Saturday afternoon was the highest ever recorded. Anywhere.

Could have barbequed a chickens *** on the dashboard. :lol:

A lot of us have enclosed small/patio gardens, during bright sunlight the slabs and brick walls generate a huge amount of heat in these small areas.
The temperature in my garden reached 40 (thermometer shaded) on Saturday :blink: I love the heat generating patio affect.

Well, according to the Marks & Spencer weather station that I got for my birthday (perhaps not the most accurate of devices) the maximum in the shade temp it has registered was 41.0c and the max direct sunlight temp was 51.3c. . .

I am a brit through and through, and I have being reading your messages about how hot the weather is getting in Norwood and around london, especially the elephant and Castle, but believe me living in Australia now the weather is changing all over the world. Australia has just had the coldest winter in June for a very long time.
