    North west discussion has settling snow from the shower just north of Stoke.Moderate falls in places.Hopefully Derby could be in with a chance tonight as we’ve had nothing over the last few days.

    I’m from the East Midlands Storme,but seeing as we’ve had no snow today and tonight looks even more depressing I haven’t bothered posting for a while.Showers seem to be everywhere but here.
  3. Topsy turvy year here just north of Derby with snow in the last week of January,then in the 2nd week of February.1st of March saw the heaviest fall of snow here with 5” falling which then lasted for a week.The last 2 weeks of March were very cold and wet,this delayed building work on our new extension by 2 weeks.We had our last fall of snow on 2nd April.The weather then turned from winter to summer with late April and May being very warm and sunny,if rather windy at times.June and July were wonderfully hot and sunny with clear skies and warm nights.Any forecast thunderstorms failed to materialise and the drought continued.August started fine but a breakdown in the weather occurred as we went on holiday to Whitby.We saw the first significant rain since May on the way there and no sunshine all week.It was too cloudy and cold to even sit on the beach!. The fine weather came back for early September as we went to Norfolk in glorious sunshine.The weather broke again on the 6th of September to more standard sunshine and showers.October and November were average with a mixture of mild and cooler days,though we had 4 consecutive frosts in the last week of November.December,mostly mild but fairly dull and wet at times.Overall a mixed year here,but with a distinct lack of thunderstorms that seems to be a growing trend here now.
  4. A cloudy cool but dry start here with a low of 2.7c.A strengthening breeze with a current temperature of 10.c
  5. A lovely day here after a frosty start.Clear skies currently with a temperature of 11.3c.No breeze at all.
  6. A cool cloudy start with a low of 6.1c.Dry for now but rain not far away.Current temperature of 12c,calm with no wind at all.

    A few spots of rain here but nothing else.Think that’s it done for here now as nothing showing to the south on the radar.I’m not convinced we’ll see much rain tomorrow either.

    Yes two flashes here in Denby with two good cracks of thunder and around 1 minutes worth of heavy rain.The sky is clear again now.Still very humid.
  9. Well it was very brief,2 flashes of lightning and 2 decent claps of thunder.Along with around one minutes worth of heavy rain.All calm again now hoping for more later.
  10. Thunder,lightning and heavy rain just north of Derby.Seems to have stopped as soon as it starts though!!.
  11. Currently on holiday in Filey and the skies to the west look very threatening.Quite windy here so looks like any storm will move through quite quickly.

    Very wet here last night with much needed rain.First decent amount for best part of a month as we missed every storm over the last few weeks.Weekend weather looking very good too.
  13. Impressive lightning over Derby now.Could be in for a treat here!.
  14. I'm just north of Derby and the sky to the south looks incredible.People are standing outside just staring at it.I've never seen darkness like it.Just heard the first distant rumbles of thunder too.3 miles further north please!!.
  15. Threatening skies in the north midlands.Gone from blue skies to dark and stormy skies.Breeze picking up too.
