In Penarth today an on-shore easterly breeze (despite what this BBC weather chart says) is keeping it slightly cooler than in baking Cardiff – or London where temperatures are expected to reach 34C.
Today is the summer solstice – the longest day of the year – when Penarth is set to enjoy 16 hours and 38 minutes of daylight. The sun rose at 04:43 and sets at 21:31 .
Meanwhile the warm weather of the last few days has led to people taking to the sea and the sky over Penarth to enjoy the summer weather and to keep cool.
Temperatures are forecast to top-out in Penarth today at a balmy 28 degrees around mid-day. The heatwave is expected to end tomorrow – as the nights start drawing in.
