Re: Weather!

No more than ten minutes but I was out to the corner shop and it did a world of good! Much cooler now... Should rain a bit later too.

Re: Weather!

It's been raining for a while here, at least an hour. Some heavy. Nice breeze too.

Re: Weather!

Now it rains, properly. No stupid fireworks like some freakish TS. Just proper, law-abiding, falling straight down, Swiss rain.

A touching mental picture: all the Brits who escaped the rubbish British weather shouting in unison: "YES! RAIN! AT LAST!"

Actually I think you mean the freak weather is over. and we're now back to a normal Swiss summer.

Unfortunately it appears that it won't last as according to the forecast we'll be back up to 30°C tomorrow again. Bugger.

Re: Weather!

Really? What website are you using? Meteocentrale says 26-27 max for you tomorrow with more thunderstorms in the evening, but no rain.

WeatherPro App (from MeteoGroup) - the most reliable forecasts that I've come across so far. However, I do stand corrected as it's now reporting a max of 29°C in the Big Z region for tomorrow.

Looking ahead through the next week though gives highs of around 25 - better but still a bit too warm for me though.

Re: Weather!

Wonderful! The Meteocentrale hazard map is showing a lovely "no warning" green for most of Switzerland. Seems like ages since it's been like that. No heatwave warnings, no thunderstorms warnings, no rain, nothing but average. Great! Back to some thunderstorms possibly tomorrow but for now it's just nice to be normal again.

I've hardly sweated at all today, though it was still too warm last night to need any bed covers over me.

Re: Weather!

Sorry BM, but just got to say it (and if its good enough for the Collins dico...)

scorchio again, so it must be sveltering too. (sticking to sveltering - this heat must be!)

It's only a new word suggestion and the status is pending at the moment in the Collins dictionary so not official yet.
Doesn't change the fact that I think it's a horrible word and won't use it.

It is certainly sweltering though.( another later edit from Odile after her post was quoted)
