    It's not been a washout though, far from it. We've been totally spoiled lately with prolonged sun and warmth, this is the UK afterall and a bit of drizzle is expected, even in 76 and 95 we had the odd day of cloud and rain. The grass is like straw where the sun caught it recently. Anyway the end of the month still looks good for a return to HP. Doesn't look like any prolonged Atlantic weather on the way.
  2. Hardly any (if any) long range forecast is spot on. For all we know both July & August could be record breakingly wet and cool which would still lead to some in here saying it was a poor Summer overall despite what we've had so far.

    Looks like another evening spent dining out in the garden.

    Been an incredible spell of weather for what seems weeks on end. Been loads of times we have eaten in the garden so far, been years since we last managed to do it as often.
  5. They need to shovel all that ice up, with some raspberry flavoring that would make a nice slush puppy

    Deep rumbles of thunder here and rain. Hopefully should freshen things up a bit. Been stuffy out today.

    Spent most of today dull but now long spells of sunshine. A humid feel to things.

    I bet the water is now a yellowish tinge from all the Turmeric and ghee that gets put down the drains there.

    Not unusual though. Many a May has been like this in the NW only for the actual Summer to be cool and wet. Rather windy though here today and last night.
  10. Maybe it's genetics? It's like a lot of people from southern Europe really dislike our climate. Possibly people who evolved further north are better adapted to cold and vice versa for more southern folk. Could be complete bull but that's my take on it.

    Crazy how localised these have been today. Only had a few spits and spots here.
  12. Make the most of it as the city isn't exactly known for prolonged warmth or dryness, more the opposite. Come June the Atlantic can crank up delivering a cool damp Summer especially for western areas. May is often the driest and sunniest month for Greater Manchester - similar for other north western areas of the UK. Been loads of May's that have been dry and warm around here only for Summer itself to be cooler and damper.
  13. Dry, clear 8.6C.

    Well it's only 15C outside but in the strong May sun it feels a good deal warmer than that. Not a bad Sunday afternoon.
