I figure it's preparing me for the afterlife.

Cambridge, about 50 miles NE of here, suffered somewhat this afternoon.

There are warnings of thunderstorms overnight and they seem to be making their presence felt already.

I've got FR24 open on another tab and there must be some real lumpy and bumpy weather about judging by the dogleg tracks several aircraft are following.

The UK has recorded its second hottest day ever, with temperatures reaching 38.1C (100.6F) in Cambridge.

It breaks the previous record for the hottest day in July of 36.7C, and falls just short of the all-time high of 38.5C, reached in 2003.

Commuters faced disruption after Network Rail reported a number of heat-related incidents on the railway.

Forecasters warned the heat could lead to heavy rain in some areas, causing more disruption to travellers.

The Met Office said the temperature reading from Cambridge was only the second time the UK had gone over 100F.

Thanks for that tw.

There have been even more circuitous routeings since I posted.
Several aircraft have crossed the Dutch coast a few miles north of the Belgian border inbound to airports in the London terminal area and routed north of Kings Lynn to avoid storm activity (as per your graphic) before turning west then south to their destinations.

Not a night for flying!

From the horse's mouth...

Significant Weather Affecting EGTT South sectors: Lydd, Clacton, Dover and Hurn. All these sectors are regulated at drastically reduced rates, with delays exceeding 150' till 0300 UTC tomorrow morning.

Same situation for East sector in terminal area.

This an evolving situation with further measures in Southern UK being introduced. Improvements in the near term are unlikely.

I wonder if it took that long for our hot weather from the weekend to work its way over to you?

The current episode has its origins in North Africa.
Spain and France, in particular, have borne the brunt of it this week and, from memory, I believe it was over 40C in Paris yesterday.
The strong southerly breeze didn't help. It was just like sitting in front of a giant hair drier at max heat.
It's 0330 here and there are a few rumbles of thunder and some light rain and it's still uncomfortably warm.

ETA. The temp in Paris yesterday reached 42.6C/108.7F

Cape Cod got hammered on Monday, tornado in Yarmouth, microbursts and water spouts in Hyannis and Yarmouth. Roads closed and trees down, power out for a couple days so stores and entertainment for tourists unavailable, and no A/C. She said from Harwich she couldn't go west at all for two days.

Stage 18 of the Tour de France was halted when a huge hailstorm followed by land slides blocked the roads in the mountains. So they proceeded to Paris where it was over 108 F.

It is nice to see "030 UTC" without having to do the math for PDT.

He meant "0330" from Carruthers' post.

Carruthers said 0300 UTC. UTC meaning Coordinated Universal Time which doesn't make any damn sense in the first place, should be CUT.
Why is that an advantage over doing the math for my time zone(EDT) or yours(PDT)?
