London doesn’t have excessive heat potential but your comment about 86F is wrong, it hasn’t not reached 86F in London for nearly three decades and it has reached it in several June months recently

Well London gets in the 90s most years.


The UK has recorded 37C 99F on occasion in the last decade.


Last years high was 96/97F.


The south of the UK, including London gets in the 90s most summers.

It is not normal, the average absolute max each year is about 33C.

30c was recorded in London in June 2009, June 2010, June 2011, June 2015 and June 2017. The comment about not seeing 30c in June in the last decade is complete nonsense.

No it doesn't. At Heathrow only 1990, 2003 and 2006 from 1981-2010 got above 35°C, the highest being 37.9°C on 10 August 2003. The annual mean maximum (1981-2010) is 31.7°C. Average annual number of days above 35°C is just 0.1.

So, rounded down or up where appropriate, 5 out of the last six summers have seen temperatures reach between 34-37C.


37C was most recently officially recorded in 2015, (there was a temperature posting on another website of someone recording 37C last year also).


Temps of 35C were seen in 2017 and 36C in 2018.


Temps of well over 34C were recorded in 2013 and 2016.


The original posting stands.

1981-2010 average says no. Can’t just use the last few years as a conclusion that London gets 35C+ most years because the average is 0.1 days
