  1. There are some dramatic cloudscapes to my west, particularly given that it's overcast here so there's no direct sunlight to accentute the darker cloud bases. What is strange is that,due to where the Low is centred and how far from the centre the outermost showers are positioned, it's styed dry here while much of the rest of East Anglia has been wet.
  2. Where are you, NW London or Iowa?
  3. Very cloudy and dull here now as evening draws in.
  4. Cheers. We had that pass at a distance just after 2 a.m.
  5. Sadly, I can't get that link to work.
  6. It's been fairly sunny here, and quite humid.
  7. My dad had the same experience a couple of years ago - he was at the door calling the cat in as it was chucking it down, and there was a massive flash and almost instantaneous bang, which brought me out of a doze PDQ. He came into my room with his eyes popping out of his head and said that the pressure wave forced the air out of his lungs, and the static discharge made his hair stand on end.
  8. You can chooose other weather stations in the same area, though. I do the same; although the University of East Anglia (my alma mater) is a few miles away, I use their station as it seems accurate.
  10. Hi Jenny, the humidity seems to be increasing here now.
  11. Sunny and clear here in South Norfolk, but I can see that cloud to my north. Generally it feels breezy and not especially humid or unpleasant.
  12. Cheers Paul. One for the textbooks and weather history?
  13. How rare are these in the UK relative to the US, Paul?
