28th June - Today's News: Drought Breaks in Evesham

A month's worth of rain falls in just 12 hours in East Anglia whilst here in Evesham the 17 day drought finally broke .... with 4.7mm of rain this morning.  That's the longest period with no recordable rain fall since I set up my current weather station on 1st July 2011.  Some places, where it's been raining for 24 hours now, may see storm totals close to 100mm.   Meanwhile, there is no sign of another heatwave on the way just yet.  Despite the usual made up nonsense in the media!

22nd June - Today's News: Record Heat in UK & US

Yesterday saw the date record set for the UK and it was also the hottest June day since summer of 1976 in heatwave.  In my garden it was also the highest I have recorded in June at 32.4c.  In addition, dew points were extremely high getting above 20c to make a very sweaty and uncomfortable evening.   But the heatwave (4 consecutive days above 30c in my garden) ended here with not a rumble of thunder nor drop of rain .....
