Are you sure? Because it broke 30C in England in 2008 in July.. even here.

Anyway, there's a clear west east split in Europe right now, even Spain and Portugal are very cool. Not that I'm complaining, 30C can wait until June or July.

I thought there were no official readings above 30C that year. Iceland managed to reach 30C, and that takes the whiz. I hope we tap into some continental heat this year, as in 2006, and get some real summer weather for once!

I find cloudy rainless days utterly pointless, but in light of recent days I'd take them over cloudy rainy days, because I get wet, my shoes fill with water, and it feels colder.

Wow, look at those 10C's down in Andalucia of all places More like November here today, something like seven hours and counting of non-stop persistent light rain/wind/gloomy low cloud, and the afternoon temperature hasn't got above the 9.3C we had at midnight.

WOW that's a pretty huge contrast.

And not reaching 30C must really suck, that's our average high in July. I couldn't imagine.

Next Friday things will warm up a bit. Hopefully.

I have an outdoor even tomorrow (Sunday) and although it will be cooler than seasonal, it will be warmer than the forecast 3-4 days ago predicted it would. The old forecast said it was going to be 57F, cloudy and perhaps even raining. The new forecast is 63F and sunny. Much better. I'm thankful for that.

Eh I must admit I'd actually like to see a July 2006 repeat from a weather enthusiasts point of view. An exceptional month though, it'll take a lot to get that again (much like December 2010)

As for official readings, yeah it reached 30C at Heathrow twice.. July 2008 was actually rather warm, just very, very wet. Though that Iceland temperature is spooky!

The very fact that Heathrow and Iceland shared the same highest temperature as Iceland that year (and nowhere outside the SE officially hit it) says it all about what a crap summer it was. 30C should on average be reached 4-5 times every year at Heathrow; in Iceland, it's a one in 50 year occurence.

An average of 22.9C/13.5C is not 'rather warm' in London in July. It's below average by day and night.

Well it was rather warm here. 22.9C is hardly reason to complain either. If you're Weatherfan2 I would understand but anyone who lives in London cannot really complain. Pus the avg. minimum for London in July is 13.9C so hardly below average.

Well technically it is below average. Rather warm would be a month like July 2010, which had an average of 25.0C/15.1C, though with a very poor sunshine total of only 162 hours.
