It was actually forecast! Lovely british summer! My birthday used to be a safe bet in late July but can't rely on that anymore

Re: Hail in July - what's going on!!

It's because the jetstream has been forced south. It should be somewhere over Iceland, but is currently over Spain and, as a consequence, we are getting te sort of weather that Iceland would have this time of year. Sweet.
