We woke up to howling winds and heavy sleet.   It has calmed down a bit now but is expected to be very bad later on today and all tomorrow.  Half of France is on a yellow weather warning and another quarter over to the east is orange for really strong winds.   Set to be really bad in Ireland and Scotland again this weekend and, no doubt, yet more rain for the Severn catchment area.

Desperate for all those already flooded and for those praying their banks and flood barriers will hold.   Much easier to sort out a lottie than a home after flooding but still terrible.

Hi Ya, Well the weather has improved slightly today No rain, sun is shining but with a very stiff lazy wind. It's a lazy wind as it won't go round but straight though you. Had to pack it in after an hour. I am on tablets that don't help. Never mind it's still an improvement.

Similar here Froglegs, we keep dodging heavy but short duration showers.

Lovely day yesterday in London - got the poly cleared out and found a chilli from last year hanging on to life.
Today looks a bit drab but ok to do some work in.

Weather today in Essex hasn't been too bad. Had a couple of hours on the plot before it started to rain. Hopefully tomorrow may give a few more hours as it is now time for serious allotmenting.

Started well, but soon turned to drizzle, so didn't get much done... fingers crossed for tomorrow, chippings coming at 8:00 am...

marvelous morning, a tad windy but warm enough to leave the jacket off. Dug over a fair old bit before I ran out of puff. Then just after I got home hailstones and squalls with enough sun in between to dry them up.

Similar here yesterday, and looks like we are set for the same. The central heating failed on Monday, water coming through the ceilings, have got the water back on, but not the heating.. despite having a "policy" with a well known company who came out and checked the boiler but decided it was the "system" and so not their problem... must be getting soft in my old age as it isn't particularly cold but I'm missing it.. it was only Feb '19 we were out sunbathing in a heatwave..

I turn down the thermostat to zero most mornings as we have a couple of hounds that like to go in and out first thing to do what they have to do. It is pointless having heating on with doors wide open. Went to turn it down this morning and noticed I did not turn it up again last night. Didn't feel cold though. But another fine morning today, I'll wait until the roads are clear of workers then hopefully get on with some more digging.

Dare I say it, but I need a drop of rain, getting a bit dusty on the plot. Just overnight mind you.

Same for me, please.

rather have a steady 1/2", that would be nice. Fingers crossed.
