And now for the weather...

Weather forecast for the next fortnight, as found on an official meteorological website :

"During this forecast period we can expect rather changeable and unsettled weather to continue with areas of low pressure over or close to [your chosen holiday destination]. Some wet days then with spells of rain spreading from the west or southwest across all areas, the heaviest rain probably in the west and northwest. But in between the wetter days, some sunshine but also showers, and on some of those days the showers will be heavy with hail and thunder and localised torrential downpours. Highest temperatures in the south and east and here they will be above normal at times but elsewhere temperatures will be generally close to normal. Later in this period it may become generally drier in the south and east."

Is there space to pack me scuba gear...?

Yesterday's forecast here was hideous, as was today's. As it transpired, yesterday was cloudless all afternoon and today has started in the same manner.

Ahh, weather changes....looking forward to some myself, Louise .... it's monsoon now and I love it, but it always reaches a point of "OK, enough, can I have something cooler/drier/different?" :)

Is that the weather forecast for the UK? Take scuba gear and a canoe... Be pleasantly surprised if it doesn't rain at all and you get hot hot hot...

The English have always been interested in the weather, they have to be, we are an island race surrounded by water which has kept invaders out since 1066 ad. Note what happened when the Spanish Armada got the forecast wrong, they were driven up the English Channel into the North Sea by a Westerly wind turning Southerly and destroyed by a much smaller English navy.
