The last few days have seen some fantastic weather – mid 20’s (sorry, I can only do metric temperatures), glorious sunshine and barely a cloud in the sky. The only thing that’s spoiled it is the incessant yapping of the neighbour’s dog (I got a bit ratty yesterday and ended up bawling at said neighbour’s front door to shut his dog up).
As someone who suffers from arthritis this sort of weather is great, with a bit of luck the changing climate will bring more of the same.
The aforementioned light breeze is picking up a bit as I type and the clouds are homing in on sunny Shropshire. The good weather had to end some time of course and the Met Office says that we can expect some heavy rain and thunderstorms in an hour or so.
Interestingly, the light aircraft and microlight I’ve just seen in the distance don’t seem too bothered about the weather forecast. Either that or they didn’t bother looking to see if the good weather was going to hold up.
Anyway, enough of the rambling and onto some serious stuff. Believe it or not, there are severe weather warnings out for the next few hours which I will translate from their native European “regions” and metric measurements.
If you live in Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northants, Bucks, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire or Cambridgshire the Met Office is advising you to baton down the hatches. They are predicting up to an inch or so of rain per hour in some places and warn of some flooding and disruption to roads and motorways.
