Maximum temp today a paltry 28.0 compared with 29.1 on Monday. The sky, although cloudless and nominally "blue", is far from that and a white milkiness extends to a considerable altitude. There is probably a lot of Saharan dust up there.
Today, BTW, is the 65th anniversary of the most dramatic thunderstorm I have ever seen, the Horsham Hailstorm in 1958. Details available in the Met. Mag. for October 1960.
