What's the weather like?

Recommended Posts

We were in Devon last week and the first couple of days were sweltering, but at least I managed to go in the sea for those 2 days.  then it started to cool down a bit but was still very warm at night until the weekend.  Back home now, much cooler and it's raining.  It had obviously been raining heavily before we got back as the garden was pretty water logged, I even had to empty out a couple of plant pots as they were so drenched!  I have got quite a lot of nice tomatoes, though several had split.  Glad it's cooler now especially at night.

Lots of rain here too today. Apparently a storm is going to be hitting us later? Orange warnings for most of the western counties in the country, yellow warnings for the rest of them. Strong winds and rain. Very autumnal weather for us - it's been a bizzare summer though. Yesterday was roasting and beautiful again, and today it's like it was two days ago - endless rain! Really don't know from one day to the next what we'll get.

yes, the remnants of a tropical storm apparently.  Glad I went away last week and not this one!  this time last week I was in the sea..... It's really been an erratic summer hasn't it, mini heatwave one week then cold and raining the next.  I'm glad all that humidity has gone though (plays havoc with my hair as well:rolleyes:

Think it's pretty much all over - didn't last long, maybe an hour. It did make the windows rattle, have never heard them rattle before!! :unsure:

It didn't stop until well into the evening sort of fizzled out into light drizzle.  Looks like a nicer day today but still that hint of a chill.

Our weather here in South Carolina (USA) has been VERY mild this August. I mean, it's normally a "real feel" of about 100'f here, but it's been low 80's. Low 80's is generally the start of the fall season as it doesn't get "cold" until sometime in October. 

 

 I really shouldn't be surprised. It IS 2020.

It’s b****y typical that I’m going to the hairdressers (for the first time in nearly six months) tomorrow! :roll:

 

Then by Saturday and Sunday the overnight temperatures are forecasting for 6 or 7 °C!!

That often happens to me too, I came out of the hair salon once and walked into a blizzard!

that is quite low for there, we've had several days well in the 80s and a couple of times in the early 90s (depending where you live, the south is always hotter), been very humid too, especially at night.

Anyone else had the bad weather yet?  so far it's just been heavy drizzle, bit windy but not too bad.

The wind suddenly picked up around 1pm, in the West Midlands, though it isn’t severe yet, it’s 30mph at the mo. We’re had forecast for an amber warning for 2pm - 10pm though. :hide:

We've got 2, count them, TWO hurricanes making touchdown within hours of each other in the same location. What the 2020?!

Two hurricanes! :o

Makes us look pathetic with our Storm Francis :blush:.

Wasn't too bad in the end, didn't get that much rain but very windy at bedtime, however apart from tomato plants blowing over and next door's washing line partially collapsing all seems OK.  Hope everyone else is OK.

The storm wasn't too bad; some hydrangea/camelias plastic containers fell over, but nothing worse. Quite lucky, as the flooding and high winds seemed much worse in some areas.

 

And today was really nice, sunny spells and light breeze! Though the next few weeks are less pleasant. It's so changeable these days.
