OK, it's just started hoofing it down here on the west coast of Cumbria, with hailstones.....hailstones in June, yeah...
Hailstones are quite normal for a summer storm. They aren't to be associated with winter or "cold weather". As it happens, it's quite a nice day
at the moment and even with the wind/rain last week it has been average temperatures. Granted, tomorrow is going to be soggy!
It's just weather and, to be honest, it isn't the worst June I can remember. 2007 was a damned site wetter, if anyone can remember that far back
Current long range forecasting is saying that the end of June and July are going to get into the mid to high 20's though so don't panic, although it
will still be a little unsettled.
It always amuses me when people get funny about a week or so of bad weather. We live on an island on the same latitude as Newfoundland in Canada,
situated between the North Atlantic and North Sea, two of the most unfriendly sea's going. You should be surprised we get any nice weather at all!
