If you thought the weather this Bank Holiday felt more like the Mediterranean you wouldn’t be far wrong. For some time now the jet stream has been diverted well to the north and our weather has been dominated by warm, humid air driven up from the continent.
With the sun, shining temperatures have been hitting the mid to high 20s, however, this building heat has simply pumped more energy into the atmosphere. The knock-on effect has been a mixture of spectacular lightning displays and torrential downpours.
As ever you have been sharing some wonderful photos of the weather where you are. Here are a selection of some of the dramatic photos that have dropped into the firstname.lastname@example.org inbox.
This mixture of warm and humid weather with the risk of thunderstorms continues through much of this week.
As ever, you can find the latest weather warnings on the Met Office website: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings#?date=2018-05-29
