Never believed it could happen - but today has been a shocking day for June, wet, cold, miserable and resulting in an abandoned cricket match.
Just thoroughly putrid.

 

Indeed I have been in Gloucester  totally awful 12 degrees wet and gloomy  yet back home eastbourne sunshine and 26 degrees  incredible contrasts today .   Up here tho about as dire as June gets

Roasting in parts of France today particularly the SW. Biarritz was 43c. Cap Ferret on an exposed pennisular near Bordeaux reached 42c which seems incredible to me, when I have been there it has always been cooler and heavily Atlantic influenced.

Heavy Thunderstorms in Bordeaux this evening and temps dropped 10c in half an hour.

An 11am high of 24.6c but at 13.9c now it all feels like a distant memory.

A strange evening with a strong NE'ly wind, upper cloud moving in from the SW, lightning to the NW and despite the very cool feel the 850Hpa's are still close to 15c !

This second mini hot spell seems to have cropped up out of nowhere, as it was originally looking fairly cool and unsettled after the weekend.

26.6C the max yesterday (Leconfield) and looks like around 28C today (27.9C at Heathrow the reported max so far).

Leconfield pipped Heathrow to the top spot once again today, 28.0C so 0.1C higher than Heathrow. That's two days on the trot, not a station I have seen take the top summer temp before.

Is that official? We hit 28C down here today with even Thorney having had an hourly temp of 27C, and that's a station kind of outside of any built up areas. Gosport is a station that the met office don't typically release info on until the end of the day, and it is normally hotter - occasionally a UK hotspot. What about Hurn? Gosport station being stuck on the northeast coast out in Portsmouth harbour almost doesn't tend to fair well in easterly winds because of the immediate proximity to the water.

Leconfield is definitely official, with a westerly breeze like today it is well sheltered from the maritime influence.
At one time this afternoon whilst it was 28c there, it was only 18c under clear skies at Stonyhurst near Blackburn , with the sea breeze extending well inland. Sharp temp gradient west to east . Reached 23c here at 12.30 then didn't climb any further for the same reason. A strange day.

All eyes on the north of England for today's heat. Cloud and rain has already pushed into southern parts and will obviously suppress temperatures down here. As well as the prolonged sunshine further north, the upper air temperatures are high all the way up the east of the UK today. This includes the Fife, Angus area of Scotland where there is a tongue of 12C 850HPa air. 

It will be interesting to see if parts of Eastern Scotland enjoy the heat at the surface too.

Possibly somewhere like Leeming could have the official UK high today at about 28c.
Leeds Weather Centre/Linton-on ooze and Church Fenton would have been candidates if they were still operational.

Cloud is marching NW though, seems to be about at the Wash down to Severn Estuary at the moment.

In the far SE where it’s cleared the temperatures are quite handy too. Currently 24.3C in Pett Bottom.

Make me wonder why they remove interesting weather stations that give actual high temperatures? York was 29C last week and that far north to get the heat but knowing that York does well in heatwaves from my time in 1985 to 1990 school days in Boston Spa, I used to see York goes to 30-31C during school terms every year,.  

Went up to 28.5C this late morning before unexpected overcast skies come up to ruin it.  Thought you expect some clouds forming but not full on overcast thin clouds.

Talking about closing interesting weather stations but keeping open other stations in areas that give mild nights mainly to keep CET above average false readings so they closed stations that give cooler nights like Redhill, Benson, etc.

Reached 27.1c here, so joint highest of the year so far, sunny spells as we speak but there is lots of cloud so unsure whether it will go higher.

Redhill has gone but Benson is still an official station for now! Rickmansworth was another classic frost-hollow station that has been consigned to the history books.

As for today's temperatures, Hawarden looks like the leader with a 27.6C hourly reading at 3pm.

Rickmansworth used to be the hottest every time during 1995 summer I remember so they decided to shut down because of that.   If those nasty clouds did not come up some where would hit 30C today, here would had been was 28.5C at 11.30am with over 4 hours to go for hottest time.

Also, urban areas are where most people actually live so surely it is more representative of what most people are experiencing. I know that operationally rural or airport sites are easier to maintain because there is less risk of external impacts affecting the readings (roads, buildings etc.) which means that the records are more homogeneous. And then you get the heat island argument but I'd certainly prefer to see a Leeds City Centre weather station than use the one a few hundred feet higher at Leeds/Bradford Airport ....

Similar to here. It peaked at 26.7°C for me, before turning cloudier and increasingly humid. Some showers are skirting around now too, but they seem to have missed me.

Hawarden 28.2C looks like the hottest.

A late surge from Heathrow, with the highest hourly figure being at 5pm today but it could only reach 26.7C.
