It’s a mere 14c here. Cloudy with showers and more yellow leaves than yesterday.

30C here now (Cambridge).

I'm carrying insulation and metabolism suitable for the Hebrides.

It is possible I might die of heat exhaustion.

Absolutely prime broken leg weather this...
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

26C in Liverpool.   I've got the doors & windows open & the curtains closed. 


I'm off camping next week.  I hope the weather stays nice.

30 here. I generally enjoy hot weather, but this is 2 degrees or so above my comfort level.
Admission.  I'm actually not that fussed about cake.

Currently showing 27°C in the shade - but I maintain my temp. sensor overdoes it by a little bit.

It is only 22 here, but the wind is gusting to about 40mph.
This is not fun in a caravan.
The view’s not bad though. Carn Brea one way and the sea the other.

Apparently it will be 20° all night here.  :-\
That's going to need a shower every hour on the hour.
Wish good luck to Mrs B with her 9am zoom.  It's possible that I won't be appearing with brown drink at 8am.

Up to 34 degrees in the Estate Office by the time I knocked off for me tea but had dropped to a balmy 31.5 after giving the Babbage-Engine's graphics card a two and a half hour break.

Maximum of 27.3°C at the Baggery. Warmer than anything August had to offer.

Absolutely prime broken leg weather this...

I won't be having the broken leg, but we've now confirmed A Plan that involves me waiting for a several of hours in an examination room on the ADCU, so that I may be promptly summoned to Recovery in order to facilitate communication with barakta at the crucial moment.

I'm predicting that it will be  a) severely underventilated  and  b) a Faraday cage.  So if I don't update this post tomorrow to moan about (a), you can be reasonably confident of (b).

With any luck the heat-wave will be over by the time barakta regains proper control of her body temperature.

To my complete and utter surprise, I got rained on a few minutes ago when I took the garden waste wheelie bin outside.

It was binning down earlier in E17, though this hasn’t actually made the place noticeably cooler.  34+ degrees in the Estate Office again before I decided that exploring a virtual Wyoming can wait.

Some rumbles of thunder about 30 minutes ago , followed by big, fat,slow raindrops.  Then it stopped,  and now it's properly hooching down.

Just got a severe weather warning. The apocalypse is between 2000 and 2300 hours.
