Highest i can see at 09Z was Kinlochewe up to 23.8C
Generally I consider 24-25C in the south at 09Z in mid summer to be a precursor of 31--33C being reached by 15Z , this wont happen of course in Kinlochewe but it does show what a remarkable 09Z temperature it is.

Thats 0.8 up on yesterday at the same timne when we reached 26.1 despite a gusty easterly. The 26.1 recorded here supports the 28.4 reported from Tiverton, given its 200m lower elevation and more shelter from the wind!
A quick look suggests the last time with equivalent temperatures here was 26th June 2010 with 26.0C. But, as far as records go, its officially the warmest day for nearly six years since the 27.2 of 26th July 2006.
The forcast all week has been for it to cool down as the breeze picks up - why hasn't it?

24.6C at Altnahara, 3.1C up on yesterday at same time
Incidentally part of the reason for high temps today is that although the PTs are a bit lower the air is notably drier and therefore it can warm up far more readily given the right conditions.. and today we have pretty good conditions for this to happen
St Bees Hd humidity at 10Z was 26%
