I have to stand corrected. The weather went from nice and balmy to sheets of non-stop rain. Temp is supposed to drop steadily back to Winter norms by evening, then a slight rebound into the 40s (F) for the weekend. Typical unsettled mess for this time of year.It was 63 F here yesterday. Dropping rapidly tonight with a chance of freezing rain and a "wintry mix" tomorrow.
It's a stunning spell of weather if you don't mind standing in the garden with a hosepipe running for an hour every evening! Apparently today it's 30 C in central Scotland and the west of Ireland - remarkable.We're in the middle of a long spell of hot and dry weather here. 28 C today and it's been warmer than that recently. No rain for several days and none forecast, so the garden is suffering. More importantly, there's talk of beer (lager) being rationed due to low stocks of carbon dioxide - I don't remember that happening before.
