Yeah the south east will, it's been quite close in the past so it will more than likely happen eventually. The north of England might hit 37 or 38C, Scotland and Northern Ireland maybe 35 or 36C

Keep breaking records every year? It depends on what sort of climate change you're talking about (warm/cold/wetter/drier) and the intensity. I assume you're referring to the mainstream projections about global warming. Under that regime you should see heat records broken on a wide scale (locally and globally) every few years as the warming progresses. Natural weather variation ensures that new records are not set every single year. For instance, 2040 might set a new heat record, but chances are 2041, 2042, and maybe 2043 would be cooler. 3 or 5 years with no new record would be variation, but 10 or 20 years would be a new trend. The same applies if you're talking about cooling.

To the answer's OP question, no. Unless climate change was extraordinarily drastic. There's always annual variability that might make the following years cooler in a warming trend.

To start a new topic (maybe deserves a new thread if people are interested), people talk about temperature records, occasionally precipitation records, but what about sunshine records? Not as practically important in effects on the real-world but interesting as a meteorological curiosity. Have some weather stations that shown an increase in temperature shown a significant sunshine change? Anyone live in a place with long-term accessible sunshine records. In curious to hear any trends.

In point #2, I pointed out that cloudiness can effect the climate rather than just the other way around:

In NZ, variations in recording and checking methods (or lack of the latter these days) make this very difficult to assess. The last 20 years have been a little sunnier than the previous 20 overall, but regional results vary. No clear signal.

Ireland's record high is 33.3C recorded in 1887 & the highest it has been in more 'recent' years is 32.5C in 1976...

Northern Ireland's record high is 30.8C recorded in 1976 & again in 1983...

Temperatures in the south east of the UK often reach those sort of values during an average summer & even here it has never quite reached 40C. I can see within the next 20 years or so that 40C will be reached in the south east, but I really can't see anywhere on the island of Ireland getting that hot, even within the next 100 years as if it got that hot in Ireland then south east England would be around 48C!

The weather has always been changing and will continue to do so.. It's a cycle

Do you think London weather was the same this time 9000 years ago?
