Robin's weather blog

Like many others I left the house with a spring in my step this morning. Not because I've won a car or a holiday or have a neice who is through to the semi finals of Britain's Got Talent but because it wasn't raining.

Actually that's an understatement. Not only was it dry but the sun was also shining. After relentlessly grey skies & wet weather the current fine conditions feel like a gift. The good news is that this is a gift that will keep on giving throughout the course of the weekend as things are set fair up to & including Sunday.

Beyond that the meteorological landscape doesn't look so pretty but, in the interests of sanity, I'm going to go into denial about that & suggest you do the same!

Have a great weekend.
