    Thanks for that....Looks like I'm going to have to top up some of our water storage with tap water then. Hate doing that but needs must.
    You may not have to do that if you get storms - flooding could be a problem instead!

    Nicos posted this on the old thread (which is closed so I can't answer there):

      Looks like we're having a bit of a heatwave in northern France. Any idea how long it might last Pen?
    It all seems rather uncertain at the moment, although current thinking is that the heat will stick around in the south of the UK (and in France) through to around Wednesday, possibly longer. Things will become increasingly thundery through next week as low pressure moves north - this definitely includes France. The current GFS charts imply the Scandinavian high which is causing the heatwave will weaken by next weekend, allowing cooler upper air temperatures to move further east. Whether this will affect surface temperatures in France I don't know - if it has got very hot and the wind remains easterly it may just increase the thunderstorm risk.

    All ok thanks, although I got pretty scared of the thunderstorm we had on Friday evening. There was a huge flash of lightning, which I think caused this (about a mile from me): https://www.minsterfm.com/news/local...g-strike-fire/

    The next few days look pleasant enough - coolish but mostly fine, with some scattered showers - risk increases the further north and west you are. High pressure is forecast to build over Scandinavia by Thursday/Friday which will again draw up some very hot air from the south. There is some uncertainty about how long this lasts so further into August could stay warm/hot and dry or turn more unsettled and cooler, depending which models are correct (if any). Whether this has anything to do with the increased hurricane activity I'm not sure, but my feeling is that we are looking at a warmer and drier August (at least the first half of it) than we had in July. However, if it gets very hot there is always the chance of big thunderstorms which can dump a load of rain in a very short time...

    Very hot weather expected now for Friday into Saturday with mid 30s possible in parts of the south. It won't last long but is likely to be a bit of a shock to the system after the unusually cool temperatures recently!

    Very wet here too - I collected half a dustbin full of water from my bin lids, bucket, wheelbarrow and trays yesterday.

    I got a rain measure a couple of weeks ago for fun....12mm since Sunday, not far off an inch in old money.

    Yes, we're drenched. The grass is a foot high and it never gets dry enough to cut with my blunt old push mower!

    It does seem to be a case of all or nothing this year.
