HiVery muggy temp is 26.5c Are we going to get a bit of thunder here?

Amazing difference from here.We are at 20.5c and have been at under 22c since 6pm although with humidity at 77% it still feels very warm and muggy.Hopefully some storms to look forward to later in the night.

I set off for work at 5:30 and it was light, within an hour it was night again.It was a spectacular show and with a fresh Amber warning in place for the next few hours I am hoping for a repeat.There is something developing South of Manchester that looks interesting.

Hmmm, from last night's forecasted "heavy rain", we got all of 0.8mm in south Manchester. The near-drought continues. Now on 277mm for the year so far, compared to over a metre for all of last year.

Well I'm away in Bedfordshire overnight so missed all the fun. My local weather underground station reports 32mm in total which is the most rain from a single event all year, so great for my parched garden. Hope I didn't miss too much t&l, would be just my luck! Now hoping to see something exciting on the way back.

Sun is out here now, short sharp shower about 15/20 mins ago, under the cloud cover it was 24.5c, temp now up to 26.9c, hoping for the widespread thundery showers forecast for this afternoon. Nice big clouds bubbling up

No weather happens here, that's why.

Lovely weather happens here.Today has certainly been better so far than was forecast for me up in the Pennines and TBH I don't want weekends, especially BH ones spoiling by wet weather.This will do fine and the NE, east and SE can have the rain.

Just done a local annual challenge walk and conditions, both in the sky and underfoot couldn't have been better.

The breeze made it a bit coolish for for a T shirt but, as Phil Collins said, no jacket required so that remained firmly stuffed in the rucksack.

Many weeks of predominantly dry weather have turned all but the wettest of ground into something which is fit to walk on but the downside is that the reservoirs, certainly around Rossendale are getting quite low now so, unless we get a substantial wet spell in the coming weeks and months we could well be looking at the dreaded hose pipe ban (code name for here comes a wet period) next year.

Today certainly was a good day to be out and about.

In regards to a hose-pipe ban, it's extremely unlikely in my opinion ... if this season (until November 30th) is significantly dry with extreme below average rainfall then maybe, but that just isn't going to happen

..back to summer again today!  24c and warm breeze - took dogs out and ventured off the beaten track and yes never been better walking conditions... certainly not the mudbath of this time last year.  We'll be getting some rain on Friday/Saturday apparently.
