TORRO have issued a tornado watch for central and southern England and Wales.

Which is quite a large area really. Tornado watches mean that the expected weather in conducive to tornadogenisis rather than they are expected but nevertheless, it could be interesting smile hail,thunder and severe gusts are also possible.

Oh good. At least little dog can take her 1st walk of the day at 2pm in dry weather.
Don't mind getting soaked at 11.30 when I walk home, but getting drenched going and dancing in a soaking flouncy dance skirt is not appealing. Most long raincoats are open from knees down.
Just had a peek outside and the clouds are breaking up from the south and hurtling across the sky at great speed. Bit too blustery for walking head on southwards in comfort, but is only a few minutes.
Must stop whining and get on with it grin

Rain started about 11.45 pm here but by midnight, the wind suddenly dropped and rain stopped. We had more rain overnight but without the wind. Today looks like it's going to be a nice day - there's a strange orange ball in the sky and I'm not used to the brightness!

3rd watch in a week. First two did end up with tornadoes in them.

I can't believe how active this week has been! (and how accurate the watches have been!)
