Weird weather continues

The past weeks weather has been bonkers again!
Today has seen a 10 minute blizzard, then sunshine, then a rumble of thunder, then sunshine, then the heaviest hail storm I have ever seen, then more sun, and now the rain is coming down in a biblical fashion.
It's been like it for a week now!
Oh, and BST at the weekend.

Re: Weird weather continues

We had the most heaviest hale storm I had ever seen yesterday - the hail stones wasn't huge by any means but the shower lasted a good 20 minutes and everywhere was white over just like snow afterwards.

Re: Weird weather continues

Must admit the weather has taken an odd turn this year, we usually get most of the downpours in the North but they seem to have shifted more to the south this year.

The Dawlish line is nearly fixed.  This video is pretty cool I think.

Re: Weird weather continues

I was driving through Simonsbath on Exmoor this morning, I had a delivery to a farm where the track to the house goes across the field and down a steep hill.  I had to abandon the attempt due to the 6 inches of snow that had frozen solid! 
That's why I love Dartmoor and Exmoor.. the weather  can be completely different from the surrounding areas.

My Fuchsias have survived the winter without being cut to the ground by hard frosts.
I don't remember that ever happening.

Has been a very strange winter this year...  warm, wet and very windy... like the other half.  Grin
The tree's in front of the house are normally just twigs this time of year, but at least a quarter have kept the leaves this year.
