ANT SWARM PICKED AS RAIN BY UK RADAR


A swarm of ants flying over the UK was so big on Friday that it was picked up on radar and confused for rain, the Met Office has said.

Radar images released by Britain's meteorological agency showed the capital, London, and large swathes of the south-east hit by what appears to be localised rain showers

Quite confusing as it was not raining.

The Met Office explained on Twitter that the radar had actually picked up "a swarm of flying ants," according to Euronews.

"During the summer ants can take to the skies in a mass emergence usually on warm, humid and windless days," it added.
