(Sorry Colin) This makes me very happy, roll on more heat. It's been really nice the past couple of weeks, cool enough to sleep but warm enough for shorts and t-shirt every day. smile

Current weather has been absolutely perfect.

More heat = stickier nights - I'll pass on that.

After a cooler week in Budapest last week, things are warming up again... indicated 32 for the weekend. That ride to Slovakia is on again i think.

How is London looking for 4th August? I'll be back in the UK for RideLondon, and would very much enjoy good weather for it!

Really can't forecast in the UK beyond 5 days. If I was a betting man I'd put money on above average temps smile

I'm off to Lisbon on Monday - low 30s smile

Quick update after reviewing the overnight info. Chances are rising significantly for a very hot spell next week.

Not nailed on.

One for the ant spotters. So many they are creating a reflection on the rain radar!

Is it really going to piss it down all day long on Saturday in South Ox?

Was in Porto over last weekend. Wasn’t quite that warm but it was stupidly humid.

Those of us on the stag weekend had to keep taking large quantities of fluids to ensure we didn’t stay sober dehydrate.

Sadly I don't land until 11.20pm on Monday, meeting at 2pm next day, and on the evening flight home Tuesday evening.

Been mooching between various wevver sites with mixed predictions with some showing extraordinarily stinkingly hot to others showing it to be just right.

Looking forward to any rain later this week.

It did rain - but the butts are no more than 5% filled.

plus...

If I was a betting man I'd be buying stocks in aircon manufacturers (or importers wink )
