That is pretty much what the weather is like in Beijing, right now. Rain and shine. For the coming week, the BBC say that tomorrow (Tuesday, 21st June) will be a warm 33 degrees celsius, with Wednesday rising to 35, before falling to 34 on Thursday and 33 on Friday. Currently, it is raining. There may be thunder later.
A couple of weeks ago, I’d popped out to the supermarket nearby, in my shorts and t-shirt. There were a few rumbles of thunder, but I thought nothing of it really. Then, coming out of the supermarket, I saw this.
It was windy too, which meant the shower moved along quickly, but it was very heavy (I was indoors at this point), and there was even a little hail! The roads were somewhat flooded too (Beijing doesn’t have the best drains, I don’t think).
Most classrooms in school have air conditioning, so it is often nice and cool in the classrooms themselves, but the walk to and from them can be very hot. I might come back with a bit of a tan though!
