I'm sure you don't want to see this if you're sitting in the rain in London, but this is the current view from the roof of my building (where we have a weather station)...as I write the weather station is reporting the current temperature as 34.3c
And this is as it was yesterday evening just before I left work......
V comforting to still listed to R4 weather forecasts about rain in Maidenhead though!
"Up here on Riddlesdown - that's in the parish of Sanderstead, which is part of Purley, which is in the GL borough of yer actual Croydon - we had 65mm of heavy rain from about 10 o'clock for a couple of hours with thunder & lightning: the thunder was very low frequency; I enjoyed it. Right now at 12.45 the Sun's out & it looks like the rain, as predicted, is off to the north. The Metcheck website has crashed due, presumably, to the huge number of us trying to access it. Cheers, Norman Fitch"
