Get ready for some more starting during the night and through tomorrow. Red alert weather warning. Watch the projection at the bottom of the article. It looks like it is hitting Crete pretty square on this time. Thunderstorms and hail predicted again.

Thankfully, nothing compared to the great storm of last week, but a good display nonetheless.

Certainly nothing much south west of Chania. A few short showers this morning with sun in between, typical of an average UK summer. No idea about during the night. I power down around midnight and don't power up again until it is light so all my sensors are inactive during that period. I do keep an emergency alert sensor running but it is set to a very high level to cause it to activate.

Very glad I live on a hill - that really was quite a storm!
