20th July - Today's News: Spanish Plume Brings Storms and Record Heat to Britain
With a max of 34.3c in my garden (33.4c at Pershore) yesterday was my hottest day since July 2006, and the overnight min of 21.2c made it my warmest night on record. And there was chaos as trains are cancelled because rails are too hot and roads melt as temperatures pass 33C. No relief down here - and continuing exceptionally dry - but lightning storms hit parts of Scotland after hottest day. The highest temps were actually in the Channel Islands where Tuesday was the hottest July day since records began in Jersey
It was also a ‘tropical’ day throughout NL whilst more storms to bring abrupt end to France's record heatwave
And 2016 climate trends continue to break records as NASA announce June was globally the warmest on record. Again.
