From the BBC:

The BBC Weather Centre said it expected London temperatures to reach 37C (99F) on Wednesday, breaking the July record of 36C (97F), seen in Epsom, Surrey, in 1911.

At present the Forest Hill station on that site is giving a temp of 101! Not sure if I quite believe that, since the other London weather stations seem to be in the early-mid 90s.

Went for a short spell in St James's Park a little earlier, and although it may be a couple of degrees cooler than yesterday (apparently), to me it's far far worse. The humidity is troublesome.
I'm dreading the journey home, even though i travel overground at a fairly quiet time. Can't wait to get home and do my John Mills impression again.

Yesterday, the temperature in my garden maxed at 40'C/102'F. Taken using a shaded thermometer aboved shaded ground.
To reduce measuring paving slab warming, I moved my thermometer to a slightly more shaded area of my garden. Its a only couple of degrees cooler than the location where I got the last 40'C reading, but I believes its a good indication of the actual air termperatures people will be experiencing around our area .

my very shady thermometer reached about 34.5 degrees yesterday, which seems about right in comparison with the "official" readings recorded elsewhere, although perhaps being stuck beneath a big clump of ivy is not very typical of how most of us spend our time in the Norwoods.

a good "real time" guide to current UK temperature extremes is at:

OK it's hot, damn hot! But at least there is pretty much no humidity so it doesn't feel like 36 degrees.
Bring on a few storms to give us some water and then back to mid 30's next week please

What!!!!!!!! No humidity??? Where are you Yamaman??

It is baaaaaaaaaking in Bermondsey and every one in my office has given up trying to look cool - we are all sweating buckets and it's as humid as ***. :(


PS How hot is it today?

PPS Funny but have just checked the relative humidity and it seems very low?? Perhaps we've got our own micro climate. ;)

The north-easterly wind currently engulfing Bermondsey is the "New Gulf Stream."

I just made that up.

E&C (as estate agents may want to start calling it) seems to be caught in a haze of heat and humidity. And the smell of summer is not too sweet round these parts. Only a few more minutes though and then a rescue train ride back to the clean-air borough. :ph34r:

It's hot but low humidity.
I consider it high humidity when I sit in front of my TV with a fan on and still sweat like I've just done a 5 mile run :P

Best thing about summer, cold showers.

Hurrah Hurrah - I'll second that. Can you get a train back from the new E&C?

PS what wind?

Very very bad for you apparently. Tepid showers are better.
