A day of weather contrasts

Comparatively ordinary day here on the West Coast of Cumbria yesterday, from the weather view, but this was not true in places comparatively close by.

Parts of Britain, particularly in the South, had one of the warmest September days on record.

Parts of the North West, including areas of central Cumbria, had extremely heavy rainfall and very violent thunderstorms.

Extraordinary really, though no surprise to anyone with much experience of weather in Cumbria or the UK - (e.g. any observant person who has lived here for long) just how changeable and variable over close distances it can be. Like that advert which had sunshine in one garden and a downpour in the adjacent one!
