  1. Occasional rumbles in the distance, and the sun has mostly disappeared from view....... Bish
  2. A massive tower has bubbled up to the SE of here. Something is going to go kaboom very shortly.......... Currently 33.5°C Bish
  3. I can already see towers building in the distance to both the SE and SSW of my location. Currently 32.9°C, nearly 4°C hotter than the same time yesterday when we eventually chalked up a high of 33.0°C Bish
  4. 17.25 mm of rain here today, virtually all of which has fallen inside the past thirty minutes or so! Bish
  5. Seems like it is finally starting to slowly move away to the north - what a fantastic last hour or so, awe-inspiring stuff. The Edinburgh and Stoke-on-Trent storms look even more insane than this one, judging by the radar Bish
  6. Utterly insane lightning and rain right now, and the thunder has finally decided to join in as well Bish
  7. The house just got rocked by an enormous gust of wind, and now it is absolutely chucking it down. This lightning is some of the best I've ever seen! Bish
  8. Yesterday was 10/10 for thunder here, tonight is now at least 9/10 for lightning - hopefully we'll be able to combine the two at the same time in the next couple of days! Bish
  9. The cat has scurried off to hide under the table - a sure sign that things are getting wild outside. Bish
  10. Lots of flashes, but not much thunder - kinda the opposite of what we encountered here yesterday evening. Still, makes for great viewing Bish
  11. Towers are starting to appear in the far distance to the SE of here, around the Banbury area perhaps. Currently 31.9°C Bish
  12. Pretty much cloudless skies here in Solihull right now, bar the usual milky haze as per the past couple of days. Currently 31.2°C Bish
  13. Within the space of thirty minutes, we've gone from Iron Maiden to Gary Barlow lol Totally silent here now. Bish
  14. Sounds like the storm is finally moving away, to wreak havoc somewhere to the north of here. Weirdly, I don't think I saw a single flash of lightning the whole time Bish
  15. Just as the the thunder starts to ease, so the rain somehow intensifies even more. Bish
  16. Somewhere about 10-15 miles to the east of here must be getting an absolute monstering right now. The noise is just relentless. Bish
  17. Last time I heard this sort of constant thunder in the distance was the "El Brummo" event from - I think - 2012. Bish
  18. Almost constant rumbling in the mid-distance right now, plus a bit of rain has started to fall. It looks like the cell is sliding to the east of here. The temperature is still hovering above 28°C Bish
  19. Big rumble of thunder to the south of here a few minutes ago, albeit rather distant. The skies in that direction have gone darker in the past ten minutes, as well. Bish
  20. The sun has finally started to re-emerge here in Solihull, after an hour or so of being hidden behind the milky haze. The temperature has started to shoot up once again - currently 29.8°C and still climbing. Bish
  21. Yet more torrential rain at the moment......we're now up to approx 13mm for the day so far, on top of the 7.75mm measured yesterday. Bish
  22. Blissful conditions this morning. I don't think I've ever been happier to see cold, driving rain falling as I have this weekend! That peculiar gulping noise you might hear in the distance is the sound of my garden enjoying its first proper drink in two months 8.50 mm so far already today, to go on top of the 7.75 mm from yesterday. Bish
  23. Blimey, thundering here and yet more torrential rain ? Bish
