There's more to life than weather though. As much as people complain, our weather is generally alright. I'd love to live somewhere sunnier tho, the regular grey skies we get here can be pretty depressing at times.

And there are regions and communities who dream of the amount of rain we get and how it could improve their lives

I find Mediterranean weather very bland after a while.

Relentless heat and blue sky. I do love the balmy evenings and low humidity, but it's ultimately boring IMHO.

A more sub-tropical climate would be perfect for me, warmth and sunshine year round but with some nice big thunderstorms to keep things interesting. Maybe somewhere like Madeira though I've never been

I think there's nothing like a nice summer evening in Ireland, but saying that there is something medicinal about a nice sun holiday abroad.

We had similar weather to this from mid June to end of August last summer, plenty of rain and cool temperatures and barely any sunshine. Still 10 days to go to summer. Let's hope this summer is better than last years horror show of a summer.

Go back through the summer 2020 forum and you’ll find plenty of comical Ali types telling us the weather was glorious!

I lived in Brisbane for a while, that's a good description of the weather there. Warm with occasional epic thunderstorms.

FWIW, the CFS shows this horrible spell breaking in the last week of May, for a generally HP dominated and below average rainfall June.

Note the blue and green frames respectively at the beginning of each GIF, the current situation is well out of whack in terms of the average:

Tentative signs of a settled warmer spell from midweek on.
