2018 and 2006 is so close that it’s all down to today, meteorological summer’s final day to determine whether this year is warmest on record or whether the 2006 record remains. However, it was anything but warm in the Highlands this morning and even right the way down to East Anglia where a ground frost was reported.

Thanks to clear skies and little wind, the coldest spot was Braemar which dipped to -1.6C. Interestingly this is the coldest minimum of the entire summer and first sub-freezing night since June 6 when Altnaharra dropped to -1C.

There was an interesting temperature contrast this morning with 11 or 12C on the Western Isles and around Wick but 0C in Altnaharra, 2C in Glasgow.

I was driving through Glenshee early yesterday morning and my dash was down to 2C.

Could see see another 30C in the southeast next week? Certainly the front half of Sept is looking settled, dry and potentially quite warm according to CFSv2 weeklies.
