  1. A dry, windy and remarkable day - no rain but plenty of weather. Warm with hazy sunshine this morning and the temperature reaching 21 deg C by 11am in a light breeze. It then clouded over with a remarkably red sun and the wind picking up, the sky becoming dark enough for some street lights to come on at around 3pm. The cold front arrived at 4.30pm and the sun's orange tinge disappeared within seconds.Maximum 21.6, minimum 12.2. Wind fresh S. Here's a photo taken from the hill above Caversham of the front approaching.

    If you're looking for thunder this map may help:http://www.srh.noaa.gov/jetstream/tstorms/tstorms_intro.html. Looks like the Midwest could suit you better, although some might find the winters there a bit too long.
