Just a heads up, especially for those that have been lulled into a sense of summer. After today there looks to be lots of heavy slow moving showers likely. Some of them could be come quite thundery/haily by nature. I think tht wednesday/thursday look like the peak wet days and I wouldnt be surprised to seem some localised high rainfall values pretty much anywhere but perhaps with a focus on the NW and east Wales/west England.
I thought some refining might come in (about Saturday) at a later stage.
It's 'orrible out there today. Rain's eased a bit since 8am when it was throwing it down ~ I think someone used the expression a week or so back that it was 'horsing it down', which describes what it was like (and is a phrase that I would like to see added to the metoffice's official meteorological vocabulary!) It's also a chilly 11.8C so not very warm.
I thought Saturday could be 'interesting' when I saw the weather forecast at lunchtime and I see that the metoffice have got a weather warning out for it already. Think I'll give the allotment a miss that day!
