Forecast yesterday was dire, but in the end it was just a cold front moving in with the usual sort of hello. Cooled things down a bit, and I got wet toeses taking the dogs out later on.  Warming up again now, 25°C in office with windows open and through draught.
But they never got to Carcassonne.

Likewise here, only 21°C, and the wonderful smell of petrichor.

Yesterday I smelt the rain before I saw or heard it, and when the sun came out I heard it before I saw it. ;)

60.1mm fell into my rain gauge in June, almost 33mm of those on one night.
Bach without a doubt.

Oops sorry. We'll move the sprinklers so they don't hit your rain gauge :p

No rain forecast here but on the other hand there is quite a breeze, sometimes feels like the sort of breeze that can precede rain.

A more acceptable 23°C max forecast for tomorrow, praise be. I have done almost fuck all of what I was hoping to do today.

Declined to go and sit in a small room with lots of hot electronics today.  It wasn't that important.

And.......The jumper is on.  :(

Actually, it's currently 19°, which is not really jumper weather, but the temperature drop from yesterday and this morning makes it feel colder than it actually is.

Still in the 30’s in Leafy Bucks, although clouded over, with a decent breeze. Looks like we’re just south of any precipitation, which is good as we’re planning to eat outside.

Cycled home from the shop, wahoo peaked at 30°C. Cycling was fine as long as I kept moving. Stopping at a traffic light the absence of breeze made it uncomfortably warm very quickly.

Melty now...

Supposed to be 27°C and sunny here. It's actually a bit cooler than that (still warm, but not hot) and raining hard. ::-)

House in York destroyed by lightning yesterday evening, no casualties.

In Limoges over the next 10 days, six days are forecast to be over 30c, three higher than 35 and the highest 38C.  That's not fun in the sun.

36°C here yesterday, but this house takes a long time to heat through so stayed comfortable inside. Went out this morning at around 8am and the air all felt as if someone else had already breathed it.

32° & storms forecast for this afternoon, then it's back to the usual ho-hum & low twenties.
But they never got to Carcassonne.

Storms didn't happen. 10/10 cloud & muggy now.
But they never got to Carcassonne.

Bzzt! Deviation! The archetypal headline is "Phewataschorcha!"

And it is not my intention to call myself Phewbagger.

Not reading through whole thread, so risk of repetition, but I read the thread title and immediately thought of certain pictures from the WNBR.

M'Julie from Whitstable came to collect me at around 10:30 on Friday morning.
My weather station, which has its sensor in the shade, was showing 32°C at that time.
It took us 4 hrs to drive to Whizzybelle.
I've cycled to Whitstable in 3hrs 45 minutes (with a tailwind).
