Bad Weather

So you had some bad weather in places in the UK over the Bank Holiday.  Here in Florida we awoke this morning to a tornado watch. Severe damage in about an hour and nearly an inch of rain.  Some great pics here:

The SUV was flipped over by the wind. Fortunately nobody was inside.
What a difference from yesterday when we had 88.

Ah but tomorrow is promised to be upper 70sF and back to around 84F on Thursday. Cool
The tornado did a lot of damage but I'm impressed at the speed they have started to get repairs done and get things back to normal.

ASBO DOG yes this weather is not uncommon here and they are very used to getting their emergency services out asap.  When I return here in September/October we then have hurricanes to worry about Wink

Have a look at the latest map Pierre. As you see everything is normal again.
BTW this map is produced by Klystron which is the most advanced radar forecasting used here.

Re: Bad Weather

I live just a few miles outside the City of Bath, in "Zummerzet" and the Bank Holiday weather was lovely - warm and sunny!  However, today, in spite of the Daily Express telling us today would be the hottest day of the year so far with temperatures in the 70s, here there is a quite chilly wind and a cloudy sky.  It did rain a little this morning according to my next door neighbour - I wouldn't know because I slept until my cat started slapping me around the face at 8.45 am!  Grin

The hottest day of the year was for them in the Sarf East, not for us outsiders
