In brief, showers today and wet & windy tomorrow.

It sounds awful because it is.

Yes, we need the rain. Yes, it's textbook April weather, but it does feel relentless.

Spring can provide spells of warm sunshine as easily as it can periods of rain but at present there's a lack of balance. Without wanting to depress you further, it doesn't look as though this will be redressed any time soon so I'll make it my challenge for the next few days to focus on the positives while things remain so unsettled.
