Another hot and dry (by our summer humidity standards) day with only a small chance of rain.  The current temperature is sitting at 93F.

Maxed out at 31C (88F) here today. 

Much hotter going towards southeast London with highs in the low 90’s F in places, away from the river Thames. 
 

It’s supposed to be hotter tomorrow.

87F here in Guildford and it’s not even 11am yet. With crystal clear skies, I might be on course for 100F here today.
 

Some areas of southeast London have already hit 90F this morning.

The temperature has been hovering around 94-95F for the past hour here. 
 

Looks like parts of Southeast London May have touched 100F this afternoon. 
 

At least it’s a dry heat...

Highest 'official' temperature, but you know as well as me that the official stations are few and far between. My nearest two stations are 9 and 13 miles away. 

There's plenty of hotspots around the southeast with the nearest 'official' station 10+ miles away. So it's not actually an accurate representation. That's not to say unofficial stations are an accurate representation either though, but it gives a better picture as there are not nearly enough Met stations. Especially in my area.

After an absolutely miserable, sweltering yet dry afternoon where it must have hit 97F easily, the northern suburbs of Orlando and Sanford recieved some relief in the form of a single massive severe thunderstorm cell that suddenly popped up in the vicinity and slowly traversed its way to the northeast, prompting severe thunderstorm warnings and flood advisories along its path.  

Where I live was right on the edge of the storm but we got a good hour of torrential rain, lots of lighting and on and off periods of very gusty winds at first from the northwest and then suddenly shifting to the southeast.  The shift was right when the purple splotch on the second radar image was right over us and the wind had to have picked up to 50 mph easily.

With the strong wind from the southeast after the wind shift the two two-story buildings blocked most of the wind but you can sort of tell in the first photo how it was howling out in the parking lot.

I took several video clips of the storm on my phone, but do not recall seeing others posting "home video" clips of storms of this sub-forum, so I will hold off.

This thunderstorm has to be one of the more impressive, better organized individual severe thunderstorm cells I ever recall seeing on radar in our area.  

Thank goodness for all the rain!  By the looks of the forecast, we are going to need it.

Already in the low 90’s F here and it’s not even 11am yet. 
 

Both of my temperature sensors in my garden are currently reading 93F.

It could end up being the hottest June day on record at this rate...

Really hot and low humidity, despite all the rain last night.  I wouldn't be surprised if it is a little more humid here than at that reporting station since it didn't get the rain yesterday.

It’s definitely cooler here today. We’re already up to 90F by 11am here, but I doubt we’ll reach 100F again like yesterday. Maybe mid 90’s F though, come late afternoon. 
 

The northeast of Surrey county is already pushing mid 90’s.

Another hot, hazy, dry day here.  About 95F at the moment.  If the pattern doesn't revert to a more normal one within a few days, we could be looking at a "flash drought".

95F at 9:05PM MST. 105 tomorrow then ..yet another quick windy cool down, at least to start the week. Maybe back to 98F by Tuesday.. Kind of sad to celebrate ONE day below 100F, lol:blink2::rolleyes:.. Back up the ramp the rest of next week, and crossing my fingers.. Changes may be afoot ( yes, lol i said ..afoot.. ) come the 4th..

For those interested, who might not have noticed, Tropical Tidbits has added select plots of the new GFS Parallel ( GFS v16 Upgrade ) which, once fully implemented, is supposed to replace the operational GFS sometime next year.. Day to Day Runs lag a bit but will be monitoring it against the standard Op. GFS to see who is which consistent over the next 6 months. Regardless thought i'd share.. Always fun when a new forecasting tool is made available:yay: At least to us weather nerds, lol..

On a side note, some interesting " Sky Lights" floating around yesterday afternoon..  While "Iridescence" itself isn't too uncommon, this presentation was quite vivid as it occurred.

Cloud species involved yesterday is some very crisp and wavy Cirrocumulus castellantus and subsequent C.c.c. Floccus.

It’s been unusually hot here. I recorded 100.6 yesterday followed by 103.3 today... We could really use some rain to keep the temperature down.

You and me both.. While it hasn't gotten quite as hot as it can ( thankfully ), esp. since this is usually when highs reach the yearly extreme here.. Lots of low humidity + breezy afternoons has been nothing but trouble fire-wise.. Need this pattern to break and get some moisture down.

That's HOT for FL.. I'd seen Tampa hit 99F a few days ago.. And the video of a ropy Tornado down in Sarasota ( Twin Lakes area ) Yesterday.. Plus you guys are dealing w/ all that dust.. Some of it might get blown up our way from down south over the next few days.. Nothing near what has been occurring back there though. Amazing it can reach half way around the Globe regardless.

It was so hot out in the yard that I moved my temperature sensor up to the shaded porch against the wall of the house because I was worried that if it got hit with any sun on top of the ambient temperature I might be replacing it.  Even in deep shade and up against the house wall, I recorded 100.7F on 6/24.  The airport recordedWhen it was on the drop, I took a photograph of it still at 99.3F.  Here are a few temperature captures (not necessarily highs for the day):

If you're looking for a good reason not to trust WUnderground numbers, compare the ones recorded here to the ones below.  93F for a high on the 24th?  Maybe 6 feet underwater at Scott Lake... :

Still hotter than hell and dry as a bone here in the Orlando area.

The forecast shows increased rain chances but still unseasonably hot temperatures after tomorrow.

Please send rain!

Well this should be the last hot AND dry day for a while as the forecast shows moisture moving in and high rain chances starting tomorrow.

We are currently in the mid-90s F.

Reached 93f today and should be 92 tomorrow but I went back to the beach and it's low to mid 80s here. Saw a significant drop once I hit Sussex County DE from low 90s to 81f. Quite the relief.

We finally picked up a good heavy rain today, I would guess between 1/4-1/3" and high rain chances for the upcoming week are now forecast.  Finally!

Current temperature is probably around 75-77F.

The day started out hot, but then a strong thunderstorm came and cooled us down. Currently 72°F at 10:02 PM.

Since that thunderstorm we had the day before yesterday, the weather has been more normal here for what one would expect during the middle of the rainy season.  High humidity and hot, but not hyper-hot daytime temperatures.  We may have missed out on measurable rain for today, but it is still 90F at my location, so another round of storms could fire up to our west.

This recent heatwave and concomitant dry-spell has really highlighted my past observations that when they say dry heat is comfortable, that means like "Arizona dry" as in 5-15% humidity, not the 35-40% "dry" 95-98F Florida heat we were having.  Granted it was more comfortable than 95F in Manaus would be with 70% humidity (I cannot even imagine), but still not my definition of comfortable.

On the way back from the Post Office to claim my last (for a while) tree fern, I snapped these sequential photos through my windsheild headed east, north of Orlando.  I believe this is called a "scud cloud".

...and there's a nice foxtail Palm in the third photo, so there's your palm!

Currently a rain-cooled 74F here.  Despite the line of heavy storms that just swept through managing to split and miss my location, we are getting some steady moderate rain behind it.  Rainfall amounts have been modest here since the heatwave and dry spell broke early this past week, but temperatures have been much more tolerable and the plants look much happier with the higher daytime humidity.

73F rain-cooled degrees as of 3:30pm local time, after a batch of heavy thunderstorms that dropped at least 2/3" has given way to sprinkles and overcast skies.  This is my favorite type of Florida afternoon.
