Looks like the beach might be hitting London.

Conspiracy theorists, get busy. The United States used weather warfare in the Vietnam War. Under the auspices of the Air Weather Service, the United States' Operation Popeye used cloud seeding over the Ho Chi Minh trail, increasing rainfall by an estimated thirty percent during 1967 and 1968.

Weather-modification, according to the US Air Force document AF 2025 Final Report, ‘offers the war fighter a wide range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary’, capabilities, it says, extends to the triggering of floods, hurricanes etc.

In 2000, reports Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, Dr. Bertell told The Times of London, "US military scientists… are working on weather systems as a potential weapon.

The methods include the enhancing of storms and the diverting of vapor rivers in the Earth’s atmosphere to produce targeted droughts or floods."

But this is a just hilarious conspiracy theory!  Don't be stupid today, UK! Whatever the weather her, whatever traffic is like: VOTE!
