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 heard on TV today that the sunny hot weather is to stay until the weekend in southern parts. My cold house has now come into its own - lovely and cool indoors and too hot out for me already. With front and back doors open I have a cold draught. Will sort out some more clothes/boots for the charity pick up on Wednesday.
Just now the TV has said tomorrow will be cooler and wetter. Actually it is usual to have rain when the roses are blooming but had expected/hoped for another week at least. It was gorgeous today with a refreshing breeze.
Still a humid 20C here <melts a bit> Someone on met-monkey posted this real time lightning map ~ might come in useful over the next few days! Or there's always the netweather one, which is looking quite colourful at the moment.
We woke up this morning to one of those skies that looks like a thunder storm might be on its way and sure enough, an hour later, the sky had darkened and we'd got a thundery shower but with only one rumble of thunder. It's fascinating to see but it looks like our lone lightning strike is showing up on my links, just to the west of Leicester!
we had a shower go through this morning before 7 am. seems a bit freshernow. there is ahumdinger of a storm over the Ukraine at the moment on Gloria's link. and one in the bristol channel. seems I am not going to getmuch work done today.
MIL says they always give wrong forecasts for thus weekend. If they said it will be sunny then the motorways block, if they say rain then nobody goes anywhere to spend money. Hmm I'm not sure. Prefer my son's plan. Read all the forecasts until you find one you like.
