Tornado traps shoppers in cars

Europe continues to feel the heat: Heatwave sweeps Italy whilst for France 40c warning in new heatwave alert and in Switzerland heatwave brings ozone warnings. We even hit 30c in London yesterday - the warmest day since the beginning of July.

Hurricane Bill strengthens to category 4 on way to Canada - now looks likely it'll hit the Maritimes and Nova Scotia before being caught up in the jet stream and merging with a potent North Atlantic depression somewhere between the British Isles and Iceland. Potenially a very unsettled end to next week for Britain, more especially northern and western parts with a good bit of rain around. Not good for the late summer bank holiday (shades of ex-Charley if the systems tracks further south) or the Runrig gig at Scone! I'll be keeping a close eye on developments over the coming weekend - we should know better by Monday.
