Whats the weather like ...

Is the subject most asked at the moment ...

Here locally, it's asked slightly differently. " my weather app says it's going to rain, what do you think?

I am not the only one being asked the question either. I have lost count of the amount of people this morning, who have said it's going to rain ...

The last two days the apps say one thing, and mother nature says another. It's been warm and humid, however there have been very huge, and impressive billowing cummulo nimbus clouds around. They look like steam escaping from a cooling tower, at a power station on a winter's day. Billowing many thousands of feet into the atmosphere.

They contain a lot of energy, you can see them forming before your eyes. They are in some instances rising 40000 feet or so. No doubt the pilots are watching them too, on their more accurate weather apps.

Amazing cloud formations, forming again, over on the mainland. The one developing in front of me looks like one of the H bomb plumes.

Delays at the airport again today, on English Friday. However I just met a lovely couple from Skopje Macedonia. Natasha & Filipe, great to see young people happy and enjoying life ...

Later update:
Top question at the airport, What's the weather been like?
Top porky pie answer, no rain for ages, from the rep ...

She must have had a lay in and missed it. We actually had raindrops in town. Probably convection rain set off by the heat today. This evening in the south western sky, is a storm cloud. Looks like Volos may be damp and we get away with it ...

Accuweather still forecasting storms ...
