After weeks of blistering heat, hosepipe bans and warnings about dogs in cars, Summer has suddenly stopped.
At 5pm British Summertime, the skies clouded over and "threatened rain" leading to barbeques being covered up, skimpy clothes to disappear and outdoor parties to be cancelled all over the country.
Outdoor furniture "flash sales" immediately stopped advertising and soft drinks manufacturers halted production.
We expect tans to begin to peel, bikes to be returned to sheds, ice cream vans to hibernate and pensioners to resume wearing fleeces from around midweek.
In the meantime expect to find lettuce wilting on Supermarket shelves, whilst pies and casseroles fly out of the door.
