    It was 28.5 C at Greenwich today and was stuck in the Blackwall tunnel traffic.

    It still summer rather than Indian summer. I look up the sky tonight not a cloud in sight and still 20 C at East Anglia. :bannana:

    Went shopping at Chatwell Heath, City Airport, Charlton and Oxford St.

    Wanted to go to Bushy Park but already late.

    Can't remember when, the rain will arrive at London by 1pm tomorrow.

    Sorry guys. :eek: Don't forget your brolly.

    Forecasters have issued severe weather warnings for most of Britain tomorrow - only Scotland and the north east of England might escape the torrential downpours, it predicted.
    Some summer sunshine will make a rare appearance today and Britain is expected to enjoy a short spell of warmer weather, with temperatures peaking at 81F (27C) in the south and east of England.
    But Sunday will see a return to the unsettled, wet conditions that have made this August one of the wettest and dullest on record.
    Dave Elliott, a forecaster with the Met Office, said: "There could be half a month's worth of rainfall in a couple of hours."

    Dragon, as you seem to have some expertise regarding weather forecasting, what can I expect in Cornwall, 3 weeks from today?

    I will be there for 2 weeks from 20th Sept to 4th October, what clothes should I pack?

    Bet you never study Geography at 'O' level.

    In Cornwall, it may still be warmer than in Scotland. I know from my experience from Monday 1st Sept, it will start to get cooler in Scotland. My advice is to get out of Scotland for good. You don't need thick woolly clothes when you come end of Sept and beginning Oct. Am I right Glojo? :D

    I live in East Anglia, it still warm in November, never regret leaving Scotland for good. Still have to mow the lawn in December. :p
