    I think it may have something to do with the weather

    If there's a solid cloud cover it may have to do with heat inversion.

    Oh, I don't know. Why are you taxing my pea-brain with these things?

    For the record, summer has yet to start in the Northeast and the NY Times is writing articles on "Rain Rage". :rolleyes:

    Here's your answer. You have a warm front from the south coming across Warwickshire (lovely county if I do say so myself), bringing some rain along with high humidity. High humidity makes air feel warmer and the front itself is strong enough to raise temps with its tropical air to make the thermal downturn one usually expects after sunset not as strong.
