Rain is back on the cards which we really need. This april we have had 20mm of rain so far compared to 0.6mm for the whole of April 2011.
Actually I anticipate April's rain to be slightly above average based on tonight's country file forecast. I recon the month will end up above 40mm with my record being 38mm in 2006. This is great news for the rivers and gardens.
Temps are also considerably down this April at 7.7 degrees this year compared to 13 degrees last year and 8.2 degrees in Feb this year. Today there was "snow" for a brief spell when I drove home from Cambridge and this afternoon there was actually hailstones.
Just to show how the weather is behaving around the world currently, in America today there have been dangerous tornados which has killed at least 5 people.
Here is a photo of today's hailstones bouncing of the roof and filling the gutter.
