Well this has certainly entered the local political discourse here in Cambridge this morning:

Another way to help verify the BG reading is the British Antarctic Survey weather station in West Cambridge. It's located in a sheltered location surrounded by buildings (see here). However as noted in this letter to the Weather journal it was compared to the BG reading in 2003 so could provide a possibly useful comparison this time.

Some interesting reading and comments in this link about the site https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2019/07/27/cambridge-botanical-too-compromised-for-climatological-purposes/


On map images it does not look like a good location for a Stevenson screen.

Is that all of the manual/climate stations?


Any more still to come?

Indeed! Great to see a new record set. I'll be celebrating it, even if the "do as I say, not as I do" brigade don't like it.

Indeed Kevin, and just as happened in July 2015, this record that has just been confirmed occured during what was at best a transient heatwave lasting only a few days at the most. The 2003 record which has just been surpassed happened during a fortnight-long heatwave IIRC, although temperatures did drop a bit after the record was set on 10th August. Interesting too that the highest temperature recorded last year happened just before the long settled spell came to an end.


The pressure set-up we had last week was literally a carbon copy of early July 2015; a deep low which was slow-moving to the west of Ireland and an anticyclone over the continent, both of which combined to send up some exceptionally hot air over the UK for a few days. Once the July 2015 heatwave broke down, we were then stuck in an unsettled and rather cooler pattern for the rest of that month. The only two summers which were notably good overall which created any records were 2003 (then hottest day on record) and 2006 (then hottest July day on record). It is interesting that these records have now both been surpassed during what were only transient as opposed to sustained heatwaves.


Looking at the current model output though, I think it could be a while before we see temperatures anywhere near the values that we had last week again this summer, if we do at all.

Yes, I think that this was a record which deserved to stand.

Having said that though, I don't really see this as a reason to celebrate and if anything, I would be rather concerned about just how often these highest temperature records are being broken these days.

Whilst we can't say that any particular record being broken is down to climate change, the fact that these records are being beaten on such a regular basis means that climate change has to be playing a significant part in that. For that reason, this makes very concerned about our overall future here on this planet.

I take your point John and I don't disagree. However I for one would be reticent about discussing that issue to any extent on here bearing in mind what Brian said earlier in the year. Unless, that is, I am prepared to risk getting myself banned permanently from this forum!

To replaced of course by the conspiracy theorists whingeing about the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens.


However, I love the way they've picked up on the fact that the nearest pub to the site is called "The Flying Pig".

Unfortunately that only means that the mutterings about Cambridge Botanic Gardens will continue for the next 16 years, or until whenever the record is broken again.

Exactly, which is why I kept that point very brief although I feel that this had to be mentioned.

  At least that’s settled now!  Last week’s heatwave deserved to get the record, especially as so many of us experienced it!
