12th August - Today's News: World's Saddest Snowman Spotted in Canberra

Is this the world's saddest snowman?   Spotted after some short-lived snow falls in heart of Canberra's CBD



Here, the weather should be interesting over the next couple of days with some very heavy rain in some areas; over 100mm possible in a situation not entirely dissimilar to July 2007.  The big difference is that this time it comes on the back of a very dry period (here, at least) so the same level of riverine flooding is not expected, though flash flooding remains a risk, and some parts of southern England have seen much more rain this summer than Worcestershire.  Obviously not everywhere will see such high totals, but there's a flood warning as 'month's rain to fall in two days'
