Hi i'm 30 miles north of london (luton), heard about this ash cloud earlier today and immediately started looking for signs of it, we have had a
really nice clear sunny days in the past few weeks with high presser in charge so it stands to reason, saying that i did notise it hazing over later
in the afternone/eve it reminded me of the indian summers we sometimes get in september/october, but it was slightly colder.
sunset was really odd the sun looked huge and was bright red/orange really nice tho.
The airport is a mile from me (lLondon Luton International Airport) Flights have been suspended until 13.00 Friday 16th April,
There website has put out this messege:
"London Luton Airport would like to advise passengers and those meeting people at the airport that flights are suspended until 13.00 on Friday 16th
April, owing to the ash cloud generated by an Icelandic volcanic eruption."
It does seem everything is abit over the top and abit nuts right now as there is no huge plume over head and no reports of a funny smell in the air
here, all tho i have been suffering from Hayfever really bad for the past week this ash cloud should it decent could make things like that 10x time
worst as the pollen count is high right now,
Does anybody know how this would affect our weather/summer in UK & northern europe???
