Hottest day of the year?

Yesterday (19th July) was allegedly the hottest day ever in the UK (well, since 1911), with the temperatures in some places reaching 36 or 37°C. I saw the weather report on the morning news yesterday and dressed accordingly - shorts & t-shirt. But I live in Edinburgh. Here it was warm, sunny, slightly cloudy and not as hot as the past few days. I was actually cold at some points and wished I was wearing jeans and a jumper! The thermometer on my office window ledge, which was showing temeperatures round about 25 or 26°C on tuesday, didn't rise above 21°C all day.

So the moral of the story is don't believe the national weather report. If you live in Edinburgh, take a jumper with you just in case...

It was around 26 deg C in my office yesterday, even warmer the day before.

Outside (in St Andrews) it was cloudy, harr-y and overcast all day, and much cooler.

Interesting, driving out of St Andrews on the road to Anstruther, I climbed out of the harr and into brilliant sunshine. Cellardyke and Anstruther were bathed in glorious, solar-provided warmth.
