  1. Something needs to change in the atmosphere for anything South of Ashford to get in on todays action,we are importing no end of detritus off the continent at the moment,large banks of cloud and decaying cells arriving on the coast as drizzle!
  2. Heatwave broken by light patchy rain moving up from France! Jeez, what has happened in recent years to our imported storms? Summer after summer as a kid I used to stand with my Dad on the beach watching storms over France tracking across the channel( usually two or three times per summer) Even remember the words on the shipping forecast synopsis. 'Thundery low Paris ( or some other part of Northern France/Biscay) expected Isle of Wight ( or some other Southern uk part) by 0500.) They very often used to arrive by midnight. I really cant see the SE coasts benefiting from the home grown stuff predicted for Southern England today?

  4. Can hear reasonably regular distant thunder in the channel. Some nice cloud to sea forks every 2 or three minutes. So a 3/10 for this so far,certainly better than nothing.

  6. Wild wind gusts and the first rumble heard off the Sussex coast!
  7. Dark skies and gusty winds off the Saltdean coast. First rumble heard,some real turbulence now.
  8. That is exactly how that will play out if models are to be believed. Expect an overcast muggy morning with patchy light rain.
  9. So, from an unprecedented run of hot weather,the best we can hope for is a decaying band of rain! Nothing in the coming days as the temperatures start to cool. ( a very imby post from the Sussex coast) am sure those further inland might get thunder showers in the days ahead)
  10. Not true, it is clear the best chance for SE England comes during the early hours of Thursday ( warning from Met office still in place) due to a trough moving out of Northern France and crossing the channel. If you read Nick's update,this possibility is highlighted too. Wednesday's storms probably will fire away from much of Kent/SE if models have it nailed.
  11. Hi Lottie! Winds getting quite gusty here all of a sudden ( like a hot fan blowing) although the 'weather' seems a way off. Makes me wonder if a few cells might start popping off closer to channel coasts soon?
  12. Anyone in the Rye bay area able to give some info on the cell that was spewing electrics between 5am and 6am just off the coast?
  13. Started life over in Northern France ( Le Harve) soon after 10pm last night,crossed the channel slowly overnight and weakened then regained its oooomph! as it approached Rye bay between 5am and 6am. An interesting little cell if you follow the radar grabs.
  14. 33c now on the Sussex coast. A touch higher than yesterday and far sunnier.
  15. 33c Saltdean East Sussex! Much more sunshine,almost unbroken today and a hot Northeast breeze.
