Is this the end of Summer for 2013?

WELL, it will be snow again soon and we can return to moaning about gritting as this year's heatwave draws to a close with downpours and temperatures return to normal. Over this short heatwave forecasters say that on Merseyside, the temperatures climbed higher than many places on the Mediterranean and even Rio de Janero in Brazil! The conditions also led to parts of the UK, enduring 96% humidity, which was muggier than Nigeria! So what was your experience 'tropical conditions' this summer? Please do let us know... Alas, all good things must come to an end, with a few slow moving and thundery showers crossing the country. For many, however, this may come as a welcome relief! But will this mean we are in for a far colder winter and will see the end of summer? These are a few photos of one of the thunderstorms that dropped torrential rain on Merseyside this week. Luckily, unlike those in some places in the UK, the storms that happened in the skies above Merseyside were not too severe. In some parts of the country the lightning caused structural damage to many buildings and also roads and railway lines were submerged in water as the abrupt end to UK's heatwave came about. Did you get any violent thunderstorm photographs and have you been affected by the heatwave or the high humidity? Have you been affected by flooding as a result of the weather that has followed? Email us with your stories and please for send us any photos you might have as well, to our newsroom email address:-  Read before sending photos.
