    What is 'yellow rain' when it's a home? I know what 'yellow snow' is, my mum always told me to avoid it. I hope it's not what the name suggests........................lucozade!

    Isn't it odd that the BBC Weather Forecast shows rain for Gloucester tonight (Wednesday) at 18:00 and 19:00, but no rain whatever for the rest of the night and throughout Friday and Saturday! And how can "the Yellow Warning of Rain [have been] issued at 9.40pm tonight", when I'm typing this at 17:34?

    " 6am tomorrow morning" - not to be confused with 6am in the evening. Thanks, TiG.
