UK Weather - It's Going to Chuck it Down

We have high pressure over Europe and low pressure over the N Atlantic at the moment which is sucking really hot air up from North Africa. The result is big black clouds are building over Southern England and I recon its really going to chuck it down over the weekend

We can expect this too;

Re: UK Weather - It's going to chuck it down

Just had that turn up a few hours ago. Lost all me daylight and today was hoping to have my water back (after 6 months ) - once I spent a few hours with my head inside a couple of cupboards.......

So I sacrificed a goat and had a kip .........an hour or so later the sun came back out .

According to the BBC you might need an umbrella.

Safe trip and take the camera

A free boat, 3 crew, tin of fray bentos steak and kidney pudding, half a packet of woodbines, some sun glasses and a road map. We will be fine.
