First, and to prove this isn't all about Rob McElwee, here's a fine contribution from Peter Gibb:
“A tongue of high pressure extending from the Azores puts a lid on the rain this week.”Some more anatomical strangeness from John Hammond:
“This finger of wet weather will pulse up across parts of south-west England.”A nice hall-of-mirrors contribution from Philip Avery:
“I almost feel the urge to warn you that I'm going to warn you that we've got some rain coming.”And some more unhelpful analogies from Daniel Corbett:
“More in the way of wet weather across parts of Scotland – almost like a bit of a two-legged octopus of sorts.”But let's face it, this is mainly about Rob McElwee, who continues to dominate the weather picture:
“And then, like a little wiggle of a blue sausage of sorts, the next little wiggle is here, this is the next lump of moisture working in.”
“This first week of the four will produce rain a-plenty, some thunder, Met Office warnings and limited area hotness.”Limited area hotness?
“From Tuesday to Thursday, a flabby low pressure area will allow warm sunshine between slow-moving heavy showers.”Flabby low pressure area?
“The thought of increasing cloud and rain is there with you in Wales.”So remember to pack your thought of an umbrella.
“Then, to end the week, pressure starts to build, the northerly is cut off and the sun can be bolder.”Come on sun, grow a pair.
“Settled, sunny and increasingly warm weather inhabits the south of the UK.”Interesting use of 'inhabits'.
Finally, and as if it hasn't already been on every other blog in the world, here's a clip that shows how meteorological phenomena can bring out the poet in all of us.
