Here in Carmarthenshire we had some rain early this morning.
Now it is dry with thick cloud cover and everywhere has turned yellow-orange in colour.
It's strangely still, with just the occasional sharp gust and there are few birds singing, just the crows calling as they fly and a couple of sparrows chattering.
The air has a strange smell to it too, sort of smoky - I guess the chimney smoke and traffic fumes are holding in the hot, humid atmosphere.
The moon was blood-red in colour and high in the sky this morning at 9:30am.
It's really peculiar, kind of like how it was during the solar eclipse, but a lot stuffier!
Definately seems like the proverbial 'calm-before-the-storm'.
I heard that in Aberystwyth, they recorded temperatures of 22 C at about a quarter to 9 this morning.
It doesn't normally get that warm in the summer until late morning!
I hope everyone stays safe and doesn't suffer much damage.
