Last sign of weather recorded in Great Britain's northern area.

LEEDS, Great Britain -- For some unknown reason, the northern portion of this country was hit with wild thunder and lightning storms and has not had any other weather since those storms cleared.

"It's not like it to happen like that up here," said a meteorologist from Harrogate. "Weather is part of everyday life in these parts."

"By George," said a man from nearby York, "my family has lived here for generations and never once did we have a weatherless week."

International weather experts are concerned that the stoppage of weather could spread to Europe.

One expert said, "France is just across the channel and it would be a shame, especially during summer, for a cease in weather.

"Also, this could affect people's breathing, since the atmosphere has a lot to do with the air and things like that."

Officials in northern England say that they are keeping an eye on the lack of conditions, as is the entire weather-related community.
