    Used to be interested in thunderstorms, but seeing as how I don't see them anymore, how can I maintain this interest?

    Bit like being interested in the dodo.

    It went very cool if not distinctly chilly during the heavy rain/hail shower which has not long ago cleared through. Temperature dropped to just 11c at the peak of the shower, adding on the gusty winds which accompanied it and yep...chilly!

    Normal August weather has arrived. Cloudy skies and 16c. And to think less than 200 miles away it's 31c+

    11mm of rain - grass is greening up nicely with this and the other decent rainfalls we've had in the last couple of weeks. More importantly it will help the firefighters deal with the wildfires up the Horseshoe Pass near Llangollen.
  4. No heatwave here either..20c showery rain. Rain total for the week now at 28.1mm

    It has been cooler in the last 10 days but in truth I for one am not complaining about that. Not when you consider how poor recent summers have been...also I do confess to feeling more than a touch of amusement reading posts from SE England members grumbling that it's too hot while we have far more comfortable but still pleasant temperatures.

    2nd sunless day in a row with more of a breeze than yesterday which delivered 12.8 mm of rain in the end. 27mm of rain this week. No wonder things are looking a little greener than a week ago.

    Rain just stopped. 11.7mm today. Add on the 14.2mm from Monday and that's 25.9mm in 5 days. Garden's had two half decent swig's of the good stuff this week.

    The met office 6-30 day outlook talks of a "west/east split in conditions" likely and "increasing threat of more organised rain in the west".

    Am up to 5.2mm rainfall for today (so far). Add the 14.2mm from Monday's thunderstorm and it's been a much improved week rain wise. I can almost hear the grass sigh it's relief as today's rain is just right, steady and persistent, soaking into the ground nicely.

    A normal summer's day here. 15c - cloudy with persistent steady rain. In a typical summer I would be cursing but this rain, following on from the 14mm that fell in the thunderstorm of the 16th July is very welcome indeed. 5 days this month now that we have had rainfall.
  11. 13.2mm of rain recorded from that thundery downpour. I can almost hear the grass starting to wake up after its long snooze.
  12. That is giving heavy rain to Oswestry in Shropshire right now.
  13. And it'll be getting closer every day from now on. PS I couldn't help but notice that you live at 8000m above sea level. Get altitude sickness much? .
  14. You summer loving guys can enjoy the coming vile heat and humidity but....every day from today onwards, the days start to shorten...by a few seconds per day at first but with ever increasing unstoppable momentum. Our time is coming again. 10 weeks til the start of meteorological Autumn (cackle)
