    Sunshine. And storms
  1. Woken up by the Australian Shepherd storm alert. 100% correct as usual. Nice unexpected bonus
  2. Typical - electrification in Kent as usual, revolting drizzle and cold wind in Norfolk
  3. Moderate rain again here, certainly getting more potent the further south you go; nothing to ominous on radar for Norfolk/Suffolk tbh.
  4. 27mm rain this morning. the band of rain sinking south has really developed some serious oomph over London and the Home Counties.
  5. I've counted 6 which isn't a huge number, 4 of those were the "one or two rumbles" variety.
  6. Had a 10 minute shower earlier, but apparently that was worthy of a yellow warning.....
  7. Quite humid out there, been doing fence repairs and a bit of spot spraying and it was feeling a bit cosy!
  8. Haven't seen rain like that for a long time, 15mm in less than 15 mins, very localised (haven't seen my sheep run for cover that fast!); roads here flooded but bone dry at Kimberley a couple of miles away. Not a huge amount of electrical activity but loud thunder nonetheless.
  9. 15mm of rain in less than 15 mins from that brute earler. Not hugely active, possible supercell - dunno, but the precip core was a thing of beauty. Very localised, flooding everywhere here but at Kimberley the roads were bone dry.
  10. Torrential rain on M25 crossing, glad traffic was at a virtual standstill!
  11. Not a bad night, reminiscent of July 4th 2015 when the bulk of the action stuck to the coastal areas (at one point it did look like it was swinging NW but we just caught the edge again). The earlier storm was mostly CCs and very pretty.
  12. Phew just got back indoors, pretty good night with the little chap coming up from Essex, mostly CC and very pretty. Hung around to see if the south coast affair would arrive, which it duly did but with rather a whimper compared to its earlier shenanigans, with the bulk of the action away to the east; torrential rain for a time and the sky had a greenish tinge which had me worried for a bit but luckily It avoided me....I thought I'd try for some semi daytime pics but sod's law meant that I didn't because the lightning was so infrequent and with random timings!
  13. Hmmm my van is rocking with a sudden appearance of strong winds. Ni funny comments.. Is this inflow?
  14. Rain now stopped, still random lightning. Can now see flashes on the horizon towards the west, wondering should I stay or should I go now?
  15. sitting just outside Wymondham enjoying a reasonable storm, lightning every 2 -5 mins, got some pics but rain stopped play.
