Default Not tempestuous in this part of the south, at least not yet.

Some brief showers this morning, with sunny intervals in between. Nothing of real note, about 1.5mm all together, though this followed 3.1mm overnight.

Good sunny spells & dry since 13:00. Bit blustery but the temperature still scraped just above 20C, 20.1C to be precise. Something that didn't look likely in this morning's showers. Maximum gust 23mph.

Not anything resembling a decent thunderstorm all summer here, I'm starting to feel left out.

Still a few yachts at Portcressa Scilly, where they'll have no protection in tomorrows forecast strong southerly. Hopefully they'll head around into Hugh Town later. http://www.thewheelhousescilly.co.uk/beachcam

I watched one washed up on the beach a few years back, in very similar conditions to those forecast (Pics on request - only yacht & someone's pride suffered)

I suppose I should have written 'south-east' in my subject line (in previous thread). However, there did seem to be some decent showers over the South West earlier today but I guess they were further up the peninsula - and further inland - than Penzance.

I would have preferred a more maritime climate this summer than the searing heat here and the 57 day drought, so some weather action is overdue here.

Yes, I've appreciated the maritime climate of the tip of Cornwall. Around 25C max (absolute max 26.5C) in the hot weather, still 20-22C on recent days, so not the big swings you've had in the SE.

Pleased to say the yachts did seek shelter in time

It's a long while since we've had weather like this, wind & steady rain. Might have to dust down the mower in a few days.

If you get out of the strong southerly wind, it's clear that there is virtually no swell at the moment https://www.atlanticcottageholidays....m-sennen-cove/
0.8m at Sevenstones, the smallest for some considerable time. Set to build later though. Sennen is remarkably sheltered from a SSW wind (The Cove, not the cliff top where I once lived!)

Decent swell forecast for midweek, when it could be very good out of the breeze, even some sunshine again.

I'm very relieved that we chose this year, of all years, to spend most
of July in Iceland. I haven't appreciated the heat since we got back
but very pleased that this morning had a distinctly autumnal feel with
a min temp of 6.7°. The little bits of rain that we have had this week
have turned the countryside green again. We're gradually returning to
normal :-)
