These squall-line twisters need a lot more work to understand what makes them tick though! This thing came down, wiped out a load of trees then bounced off upwards again. The most remarkable one I've ever dealt with.

Tropical storm Megi has given the Phillipines a battering a fortnight ago, but passed unnoticed as there's so much else happening.

More significantly, South Africa experienced it's worst ever floods with over 400 deaths ...... barely a mention 

It does however have a wiki page ....

Same here and tiny drops of what seem to be a clear watery liquid too. An unusual meteorological phenomena this spring for the South of England and worthy of note in this thread for Unusual Weather.

Denver is the master at these insane temperature swings. Incredible climate.

From a friend in Utah today

We are having a freakish snowstorm today.  It has been around 80 degrees this week and now this storm shows up.  It is forecasted we could get 8 inches of snow by tomorrow.

10c to 15c above average for May. More like late July.

I see Albi in southern France broke its May record temperature today. According to Wikipedia the May record was 33.7C, but today it reached 35.4C there, smashing the old record by 1.7C!

Thought it more than 33.7C because UK warmest record is 33.2C and thinking in France would be 35-36C?  Those heat in Spain and France sparked off storms and tornados today while UK missed out the heat and storms.
