  1. Just had around 30 minute downpour with some very heavy rain for a time. Total is around 23mm during that time. Had a couple of rumbles, but its been mostly about the rain! Temp 14.7c
  2. Rough location of the cold front using latest observations (temps and humidity), anywhere west of this line is out and east are still in the game, especially so further towards the South and East.
  3. Rain just managed to throw it down here for a couple of minutes, oddly I'm out of that first line of precipitation which passed with no rain. Clearly elevated for now.
  4. I don't post often in this thread, but would like to share my thoughts. People already writing off August is silly in my mind. The EC really does paint a positive picture this evening throughout the reliable time frame, with the Azores high once again moving towards Scandinavia and resetting the pattern seen throughout July and early this month. You can see this developing +192hrs. That mean is pretty consistent for an Azores Ridge. Increased interest (which I think have been covered rather extensively by @Tamara and @Singularity and perfectly explained) is within the Tropical Pacific, which is always a good indicator for upstream developments beyond the range of the mid outputs of the models. El Nino implications continue to paint a interesting picture for the rest of August, which makes me think that people writing off higher temperatures (post 30°C) are being premature. I've personally been blow away by this summers conditions, but not overly surprised since the last 'major' pattern change in late February. Again, I personally can see August continuing how it started, past this weeks slightly more amplified forecast.
  5. Your location will be! Even so, I think most of us will be 'not used' to this blip after this summer so far!
  6. What a difference a day makes, this time yesterday I was sitting at 30°C and watching a thunderstorm rolling in. Stark contrast today with a high of just 22°C and a strong SW'ly breeze. I see tomorrows rain is already making inroads now on the radar. Really has been a while we've seen a substantial front moving in from the Atlantic!
  7. The moon has finally made appearance, a little late to see the lunar eclipse! The bright moon Is showing off some rapid convection shooting up once again here. Whether or not this is the start of another round of storms is to be seen!
  8. Had thunderstorms all around over the past few hours, some great lightning strikes but more worryingly very little rain. 0.3mm fell over the last 2 hours. With the ground being as dry as it is, fires sparked by lightning could be an issue!
  9. What a change from clear skies an hour ago to this. Deep rumbles from this Storm over Selsey.
  10. Rapid developments now along the south coast, altocumulus rocketing up now. Clearly another trigger moving north for southern areas
  11. Storms over Cherbourg and in the channel are currently fairly weak, however they are now starting to expand. IOW will be first
  12. After a low of 17°C overnight, temperatures are now responding well to the sunshine and we are up to 29°C currently and feeling humid. Sunshine is now turning hazing with altocumulus filling the sky rapidly now. Radar looks interesting with some showers and storms moving north in the channel.
  13. Watched the storm over Bournemouth from here, some beautiful clouds around this evening. Humidty has risen sharply within the last few hours Still 27.8°C; DP 20.1°C. Uncomfortable.
  14. Currently sitting at 31°C and feeling very close now. Beautiful sky has now formed with plenty of altocumulus. Something is starting to give now.
  15. Already up to 28°C at 11 am, a good 4°c higher than this time yesterday. My all time high since I got my station back in 2007 is 34.1c in 2013, this currently looks under-threat. Storm chances increasing tonight given the cold front causing some destabilisation ahead of it. Been a while since I said that!
