Still warm here tonight hence middle of the night post! Minimum on 19th was 17.1c.  Classic downland valley adiabatic cooling profile - the cool air was greedily taken in and trapped.  Just as well - because whilst Langdon Bay atop a 400ft cliff achieved 37 that afternoon around 4pm, this sheltered valley location achieved a VP2 high of 39.8c - an all time record.  A summer temperature differential of 3c is quite normal due the extreme nature of the Langdon Bay site (atop a cliff - and then up a pole to reach 400ft).

A perfectly plausible temperature Phil. The cold that sat in the valley at 6am would have just as easily trapped in the heat at 4pm.

Does anyone know a good* site where it gives previous days weather data/temperature, please?



*i.e, preferbly not Wunderground. Some sites gives weather data/temperatures of nearest airport/airfield rather than the actual location (like Sheffield actually gives Doncaster)!

Or Weatherobs has a wider network including all the more obscure stations.


For Sheffield weather station you need weatherobs.com.


 


Zoom in on the map and click the Sheffield station, then "open dashboard" for all the historic data.

Great writeup from the Met: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/binaries/content/assets/metofficegovuk/pdf/weather/learn-about/uk-past-events/interesting/2022/2022_03_july_heatwave.pdf


 


They make it 46 sites equalling or breaking the previous record, so I missed a couple :)

I see that the top temp for Monday 18th has been revised upwards to 38.2C at Pitsford, Northants, just beating Santon Downham. Still no data from Denver in Norfolk that I can see, so that may be a wait until 1 August!

It picks up that loss of momentum in the 12/13 July. And then it just exploded after that again.

Embarrassing for whoever is responsible for running that site though.

Nevertheless, I think that it is only a matter of time before that does end up happening, and I wouldn't be surprise if this happened very soon given the manner in which high temperature records keep on tumbling at a faster and faster rate these days (it's such a shame that it can't be like that with cold temperature records, especially during the winter).


In any case though, Charterhall is the closest official station to where my family live in Hawick and I did at least have the honour of actually being there (by that of course, I mean in Hawick and not actually at Charterhall) at the time which was quite an experience in itself.

Does anyone know what the maximum 500-1000 thickness that was reached during the July heatwave? Were any records broken?

Based on this list that ties or slightly exceeds the record from 2019? https://www.torro.org.uk/extremes/summary


 


 


Incidentally the 542 dam on June 30 was one of the 5 lowest ever on that date! https://twitter.com/RoostWeather/status/1542595367874830338
