I wonder what the highest for UK today. I suspect that 21 C has not been reached.

Proper lively storms taking place in Cyprus yesterday and today,  Yesterday Nicosia recorded 36.6mm of rain and now more storms and cold temperatures at 10.3C recorded 13.42pm from 19.4C at 10.06am in the morning.  Very interesting than this country so called stupid named poxy lame storms that doesnt deliver anything but just wind and rain and static temperatures.

 A month or two ago I mentioned that I considered the (then) present North Atlantic synoptics as being more like those of the 70's/80's as compared with the last three decades or so. My position hasn't changed.
Anyone have an opinion on this and what might be the likely outcome to our weather if the comparison is reasonable and becomes the norm?

And you thought Britain had some 'interesting' convection yesterday ...

Pakistan's most populated province Punjab has suffered the highest death toll so far, with 21 people killed by lightning between Friday and Sunday, AFP news agency reported.

Also lots of flash flooding there - again.

The rain chart for the next week shows it's going to remain soggy out there, with around a year's worth of rain over the next week.

Laughable - the Telegraph is blaming cloud-seeding for the deluge:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2024/04/17/dubai-airport-flooded-record-rainfall-one-dead/ 

The reason it's laughable is because the models were predicting heavy rain in the area - and, of course, the models won't know a thing about whether or not cloud-seeding has happened!

In the hours that followed the floods, some social media users were quick to wrongly attribute the extreme weather solely to recent cloud seeding operations in the country.
Earlier reports by Bloomberg suggested cloud seeding planes were deployed on Sunday and Monday, but not on Tuesday, when the flooding occurred.

BBC Weather meteorologist Matt Taylor also noted the severe weather event had already been forecast. "Ahead of the event, computer models (that don't factor in potential cloud seeding effects) were already predicting well over a year's worth of rain to fall in around 24 hours," he said.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-68839043 

That won't deter conspiracy theory either!

EDIT I suppose you could maintain that the prior seeding worsened the bad situation already predicted. I always understood that the silver iodide or whatever was being used for seeding had a temporary and local effect, being washed out by the rain generated - but does anyone know know for certain how long it remains aloft?
