It was blowing a hoolie  at 5am this morning when I was out shooting rabbits , I'm in the West Midlands.  It's alternating between bright sunshine and rain now.

Cold and rain in Essex/Herts. Yesterday we had a downpour and then the sun came out. The grass was actually steaming. Not seen that before. Pavements yes but not grass.

Cold wet and windy in Cumbria. Intermittent sunshine but mostly the above. 
Put on a smock with just a T-shirt underneath to walk the four miles to garage to pick up vehicle and was soaking with sweat when I got there!

Windy overnight with lashing rain, Wind is still here but rain has cleared with occasional bursts of brilliant sunshine.

The North Sea here at Berwick-upon-Tweed is very angry this morning, compared to having looked more like the Mediterranean recently.

We left the Wolds in a rain storm, walked a coastal path in bright sunshine, dropped 50 pigeons at the game dealer and returned home to more storms.

Was windy and wet this morning, now 12:50pm windy with broken cloud, talking to a farmer this morning, he was saying they could do with a week of rain the ground is still so dry, weather forecast for next week is sunshine and cloud with the odd shower.

Bit of a bonus for me as I was supposed to be on holiday from today in your neck woods. Looks like it’s going to be a good week to miss weather wise

Blowing a hoolie with very strong gusts in between brilliant sunshine and showers...all in all a mixed bag

going to go out for a walk around without gun (as with her from indoors instead) and you can bet your life Charlie or the likes show up whilst we do

Not many holidaymakers here at the moment- real shame as the weather has been glorious. Strange to see the beaches so quiet at this time of year.

Not so hot the last couple of days, it's fallen to the mid 40s. On Thursday it was 50+, and driving back from going to check out some fishing the outside temp reading in the truck was actually up to 52 for a bit. Even though it's bearable because the humidity is very low, it's pretty still pretty hostile weather to be outside for long in, especially if you're not very well covered. It looks like we'll have to go early and pack in the fishing before lunch.

Was windy and wet overnight in Fife, last of the strong winds passed through by mid-morning, now glorious blue skies with the odd cloud.

Absolutely roasting in the sunshine, but the northerly breeze Is cool.

It’s turned into a lovely day which was all rather unexpected.

Erected a house there many moons ago. Very nice town, must go back sometime.

It’s a lovely seaside walled  town that is steeped in history- more pubs than most towns, and  a few decent restaurants. The beaches are as good as you will find, in fact the whole of Northumberland is regarded as a hidden gem- there are worse places to live.
 

We also have the only English football team playing in the Scottish league- good pub quiz question.

We have friends who have a holiday let just outside the town, and several friends to holiday in that coast, but can’t say I’ve been,  apart from the week it took to erect the aforesaid house. 
My Dad and his twin brother were stationed there as part of their basic training in the 1940’s. 
We really should go.
