Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
I was going home to Bude from Manchester yesterday afternoon and I'd pulled into Gloucester services on the M5 where there's a fabulous farm shop. I couldn't get out of my car for twenty minutes due to a viciously spectacular though short-lived thunderstorm. Such events usually mark the end of fine spells, but today has been glorious in north Cornwall with non-stop sun and 25⁰C. Just down the road in Camborne they had a 40mm deluge yesterday in a short time, making it the wettest place in Britain. Gravesend had 34.4⁰C yesterday, a hundred-year UK record for September. I think somewhere in East Anglia may have touched 32⁰ today. Weird weather.
