Laura's weather blog: Will there be a heat wave?

A mixed week of weather continues into the weekend.

High pressure close by gave a settled start to the week with a few scattered
showers. As it retreated it allowed the showers to grow bigger and more intense.

Tuesday more than half the UK experienced heavy showers, some torrential
with hail and thunder. There was a massive one over my house, I sat in the
conservatory, the hail was so loud crashing on the roof, it was no surprise to hear reports of flooding.
