Lol Joe it was 41 on Centre yesterday! Hot enough for you.......
Lucky you! Been around 33 here, which is too much for me. I'm useless in the heat though.
Think the problem in the east was that we were supposed to have thunderstorms this morning but they never materialised so we just ended up with this suffocating heat, blazing sun, and then when the wind arrived it was also hot, rather than a refreshing breeze. Guessing something similar is going on in London, but the courts are sun traps, and the pollution, buildings, people, traffic etc just make it worse.
Yep, genuinely sounds awful, I hate that sort of heat.
Heard thunder when I woke this morning at about 6:30 and I could see that it had clearly rained overnight as I left for work, so I think it broke while we were asleep, luckily for us. When I lived and worked in London from 2009 until earlier this year, the summer heat was unbearable when commuting on the Tube and train. That's one of the many things that I certainly don't miss about the place since moving down here.
