Here comes the summer!

Confidence now high for the HEAT WAVE starting weekend then continuing thru early next week and possibly beyond.  Updates later.

Early days still, but there is some indication of July warming up considerably from next weekend after a breezy mid-week. Models are coming together showing the Azores High building right across the UK from next weekend (7 July) bringing anticyclonic sunny and warm weather and a warm upper air flow. Some charts show temperatures in the south east exceeding 25°C and some even show 30°C! Whilst the UK is set to be much warmer than normal (positive anomaly), much of Europe is cooler than usual, still stuck in the trough of cool air.

 It is worth remembering that the sun is very strong this time of year and, although a weather advisory seems tedious, it is worth slapping on the sun cream and adding a hat: slip,slap, slop!  Of course, our own heat wave will be nothing compared to the temperatures the SW USA is experiencing right now.  Record breaking heat is pushing temps up to the hottest ever recorded 54ºC.  That beats previously discredited records in Libya. ttp://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/western_issues_vegas_could_treated_Z7IWo9K7JwgXdDcqNOJ7jO
