Another week of insane cold temperatures for us here, and in a weather pattern looking to last a couple of months. I find it odd that in recent years an unsettled theme has not brought the common thunderstorms we used to get. It could just be NW England that doesn't get these though. I am probably remembering when I used to live in Windsor (SE England) and any unsettled weather in spring/summer would bring frequent thunderstorms. Not so here.

Unsettled here rarely translates to thunderstorms. On average we only get 8 - 10 thunder days a year. This figure balloons to over 14 a year in parts of East Anglia and Kent.

Yes, you're right, just over a month ago in one night temperature reached -20C. May usually has a warm (23-25C in daytime, although at night still cool and is about 10-15C), sometimes hot weather, and very cold in this month it's 8C at night or 15C in daytime, but this happens only one or two days for the entire month. May has a mild weather and this is one from the best months in year before hot and dry summer. I think it warm will last until the summer.

Wow indeed, no wonder there's a tornado watch over there Nothing like that here, just classic London April weather albeit a bit cool, sunny spells and then frequent brief showers:

So mid-April is now the time when Russia gets warmer than Western Europe?
It's getting earlier and earlier.


Here 10C high, grey and windy (70km/h max gust), so not very pleasant. Currently 5C (windchill 0C).

Some little pileus clouds yesterday:

Or 15 days annually back at LHR (I lived 5 miles from there). However this thunder drought seems to have affected the whole country recently. Last here Heathrow had its fewest thunder days count since records started.

10 C, grey, and windy? Wanna trade?

Today was warm (76 F), but not bad since it was cloudy much of the afternoon with spotty showers. Enough rain last night to dampen the pavement, but basically amounted to nothing. The low this morning was a mild, but refreshing 55 F.

Tomorrow is expected to reach 87 F.

Wow. That's always cool when tornadoes/hail/derechos are in close proximity to snow. Even better is when they occur to the same places as occured in the Great Blue Norther (1911 Nov 11).
