Guildford: Heavy shower at 1540~1600 GMT then 1725~1727 GMT. 4.5 mm. Thunderstorm to N.W. moving East towards London between 1809~2010 GMT. Lightning observed in cloud 1900~2005 GMT. Some spectacular pink-orange coloured forked lightning. Torrential rain and some flooding reported from Bisley and Wood Street (North Guildford).
This outbreak got very close to the site with torrential rain and flooding only 5 km to the north.
The severest conditions were about 10~20 km north of the site with very large totals in a short space of time. A colleague delivering shopping to a customer in Ash was marooned in her 'home shopping' van around 1900 GMT due to extremely heavy rain and flash flooding.
Local totals include: Sandhurst, Berks: 54.9 mm / Crowthorne: 32.7 mm / Bracknell: 28.5 mm~32.0 mm.

Guildford: 31.1 mm rainfall from evening torrential downpour (unfortunately not observed – I was in Fleet where there was a very dark sky to East to South from 1830~2100 GMT with thunder to South from 1840~1910 GMT).
Another part of Guildford received 55.0 mm from this event.
