Please keep this as factual as you can and if possible quote sources.
As long as the thread does not get too unwieldy we'll allow comment and opinion on the data in here but if it starts to get busy then comment and opinion will be deleted in favour of data so that information does not get hidden.

If you don't want your to have your comment possibly be deleted (after 3 or 4 days and purely for space/clarity reasons not because of the comment content) then please start a thread outside of this one.

I love the fact that they are reporting that it is closed because of a heatwave and they use a library photo with snow on the ground.

Hopefully it will be back down to around 30 C by Tuesday and then for the rest of the week.
