Reykjavik sweats warmest day in 9 years, Blast of heat end’s July across Italy, Balkans, Poland, Russia

The Icelandic capital of Reykjavik touched 22.5C on July 27. This was the warmest day for the city in 9 years when the thermometer hit 25.7C in July 2008.

The previous day (26th) saw north-central Iceland rise to a balmy 24C.

Meanwhile further south, while the UK is locked out of summer and stuck beneath low pressure as July ends, another major ridge drives the thermometer up across drought stricken Italy, Balkans, Poland, Russia.

It’s the very digging UK trough which is pumping the ridge and driving African origin air north across the Med once again. Looks like the opening days of August are hottest.

A significant amount of rain piles into Western Europe through the next 7 days but little south of the Alps.
