The temps remained warm through the evening and we were still at at +20°C at 10PM when the ISS was passing over our area(photos below).
Some clouds moved into the area before midnight but have since dissipated.

Another hot day

Yesterday was an absolute scorcher here in Liverpool.The highs on my thermometers were:+28°C in the shade and +36°C in the direct sun.Thankfully,there was a nice breeze.
The evening remained clear and warm and was perfect,once again,for viewing the ISS as it passed our area.
Today apparently will be a repeat performance and then cooler weather is expected tomorrow.
Current conditions here @ 8:00AM are:
+16°C
Clear
Wind is light SE.
We are only one degree below today's forecast high for this area.However,that is actually the Western Head forecast where the weather station is located.It's almost 10km from Liverpool and very close to the cold Atlantic.We will see the 'inland ' temps here.

The forecast:

Today
Sunny. Wind southwest 30 km/h gusting to 50. High 17 except 28 inland. UV index 8 or very high.
 
Tonight
Increasing cloudiness with 60 percent chance of showers overnight. Fog patches developing overnight. Low 8.
 
Saturday
Clearing early in the morning. Fog patches dissipating in the morning. High 9 except 15 inland.
If it remains clear enough,ISS passes tonight are:
9:49PM rising in the NW,heading to the east and visible for about 5 minutes
and
at 11:23PM rising in the NW but only visible for about 3 minutes as it heads towards the south.
