Hallelujah Wednesday...Rain Back Tomorrow

What a start! Lots of people enjoying the commute to work today with gorgeous light. Cloudy start but that made for the sun breaking through even better...getting more blue out there as we speak..Afternoon temps are about a seasonal 7..


- The next low pressure system will sink down to us for tomorrow..overnight clouds will move in and Thursday will start off drizzly and probably foggy too. However, the models are not in agreement with the timing of the rain; out of the two post reliable, one is starting the rain early in the day and the other doesn't have it starting into early evening..either way it looks like the evening will be soggy and the day grey
- Friday at this pooint not looking too bad. It seems we will get a new system moving in roughly every other day so today break, rain tomorrow, break Friday, wash-out & windy Saturday. Drier Sunday, rain Monday. Weather gots some rhythm.

Scientists develop brain cells from human Urine
- New York In a breakthrough, scientists have engineered brain cells from human pee, a finding that could revolutionise treatments for Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
- As a person urinates, skin cells are routinely shed from the lining in the kidney, and it's these cells that the researchers reprogrammed into stem cells, which can turn into any type of cell in the body, including brain cells.
