MON: Cloudy and Cool; up North.

ECML-Route-Weather Watch


Welcome to my Blog, bringing you my weather observations through North East Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, North Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and into the City of York during my daily commute from Melton Mowbray, by car and train.

Monday 28th April 2008:

Cloudy and Cool; up North.

Melton Mowbray 06:30hrs 7.9'C

What an interesting weather weekend in Melton Mowbray it has been. Sunday was a very summery day. I was outside in the garden for most of the afternoon and whilst enjoying a beer on Sunday evening I would admit to it feeling really pleasant in the warm evening sunshine. That ended dramatically with a storm at about 1830. The sky turned black from the southwest and a few rumbles of thunder soon became a dramatic display lightening right across the town. It was mainly sheet lightening with some visible fork lightening. The rain was heavy and intense and the whole cell hung around for about 30 minutes or so before moving off in a North Easterly direction.

This morning broke sunny and warm in Melton Mowbray and similar conditions continued through the commute to work. North of Doncaster the cloud began to build from the west and disappointingly York is under a blanket of cloud with some light drizzle and pretty cool.

Tomorrow: Sunshine and showers…
