So, a light shower with sunny intervals then!

Please don't turn into the Daily Express with it's headline of '100,00 old people to die as temperatures set to plummet to minus 10 in coldest winter for 100 years' that was last winter. All I remember was wind and rain!!

And in spite of myself suggesting that the water companies problem was a finite supply for a rising population and why don't they build a reservoir, in their public questionnaire recently.

Actually an avid weather watcher but don't believe the Met Office or the BBC go to CRWS Jet Stream and click on Big Images , under Forecasts, bottom of right hand column. The jet stream will bring wet weather if over or to the south of the uk and usually dry when to the north.

I blame the Greens. We never had torrential rain under Labour and Conservative.
