Morgen sonnig und sehr warm.  Lucky you.  We're going to Salzburg in October.  
It'll be raining by then!!  And probably cold.

I just found Athens and Madrid that are hot.  I don't know what I was doing 
this morning - the map of Europe I found just didn't have anywhere hot!!  And 
I'm getting the impression here that summer is outmoded.

This from our local weather forecast page:
Met Office Warnings Issued For:
Yellow early warning of rain
0600 on Fri 5 June
2350 on Fri 5 June
Updated 3 June at 12:15
Scattered thunderstorms are likely to extend northwards across eastern and 
southeastern areas of England during Friday giving some localised intense 
downpours. The public should be aware of the risk of localised surface water 
flooding which may lead to disruption to transport and outdoor activities. 
Frequent lightning could prove to be an additional hazard.

The thunderstorms should clear away eastwards on Friday night.As is typical of 
this type of situation there is considerable uncertainty as regards the 
extent and timing of any thunderstorms, with some places within the warning 
area probably escaping the downpours. Therefore this warning will be kept 
under review and updated as necessary.
