Now You Feel It, Now You Don't

Yesterday must go down as one of the shortest heat waves even by UK standards. It was forecast that a plume of hot air would move up from Africa possibly bringing electrical storms. Well, they weren't wrong though the storms passed mainly over the SE of the country.

As for temperatures, yesterday started around 10C and steadily climbed until it peaked at 25.2C by teatime:

Then steadily declined until it was a mere 7.4C accompanied by a bitingly cold wind when I got up this morning:

Here we just had one short spell of torrential rain which seemed to be enjoyed by a frog which slowly hopped its way across the lawn:


It was nice to have had one day where shorts and T-shirt were the order of the day.

    1. TWG: I make that 32C - more than enough for me. At least cold nights let the building cool down.
