Sunday's ScorcherToday is National Ice Cream day in the USA. Ronald Reagan declared in 1984 that ever third Sunday would be dedicated to ice cream, Many sellers offer discounts and deals on their ice cream and on a scorcher like it will be today, it is one of those American traditions we would be happy to see copied.

A dry day across the region with strong sunshine. Feeling hot for many, a bit cooler with a light onshore breeze. Maximum temperature 30c, low of 16c.
