Drove back to macc last night and significant raised bumps in the middle of Rd, near where the snow blows down from field and always drifts. Bumps on double whites, which were raised 'like tarmacked mole hills'.  Big enough to do alot of damage!  Noticed the bumps circled in paint so hopefully council fixing soon, howeverr use caution on this stretch, until fixed!"

Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
..........Thursday 11 Aug - Saturday 20 Aug
The start of the period will likely be fine and sunny for most. Cloud and light rain may be seen in the far northwest on Thursday, although these should clear by the end of the day. Temperatures are expected to continue above average, becoming very warm or hot in the south and rather warm to warm in the north. Into the weekend and through next week, mainly dry and settled weather will likely continue for most. The north is expected to see the most of any precipitation, but there is also a low risk of thunderstorms developing in the south. Temperatures will likely range from warm to very warm for much of England and Wales, especially across the southern parts. Near normal to warm elsewhere.
Sunday 21 Aug - Sunday 4 Sep
The second half of August may bring a shift away from the earlier settled conditions for many, with occasional periods of unsettled weather over the northern and western parts, and increased chances of thunderstorms in the south. Temperatures will trend between average and warm for most, and likely warm or very warm in the south, where it will also turn humid at times. Further into the period, the unsettled conditions may spread further south and east at times, although the north and west are still likely to see the most of any precipitation. .........................
