    Most promising charts lately for proper summer thunderstorms for years I think. No damp squib please.

    Porthmadog finished on 31.4c, max 30.1c here, but it felt unbearably hot at Aberystwyth.

    Feels quite different this morning. Quite a cool North Easterly breeze with a lot of (broken) cloud. The cloud is fairly low and is obscuring the top of the mountain, haven't seen that for a while. 1st morning in a long time without clear blue skies. Thermometer says 20c at 08:25 but feels fresher than that.

     

    This, in my opinion, is the best summer I've experienced since 2003. Long dry and sunny spell at the start of June. Then a bit of a mix but no wash out before this stunning 2 week plus (to date) hot and sunny period. 2006 in my eyes was concetrated to an extremely hot 2 week spell (during which I was on holiday in Greece - typical!).

     

    Something unusual I've noticed since the start of June which is in complete contrast to recent summers and is quite unusual. Early June Wales and more so West Wales was the sunniest place in the UK and during this spell on numerous days Wales has seen the highest temperatures. Thanks to the position of high pressure I believe.

    The last time I saw this sort of storm potential was in the early 70s when a storm produced golf ball sized hail, flash floods and strong winds. The hail damaged cars, greenhouses and conservatories and I think we may see the same next week so take care folks.

    Completely overcast here with stratocumulus now. A nice breeze also so it feels fairly cool out there, almost jumper weather. Was supposed to be fairly hot.

    Do we have a shout at Thunderstorms in the North? Or are they forming below us and moving towards England? I guess it can all still change aswell

    Just watch things drift away to our East as masses of colossal superstorms batter England leaving just bits and pieces of drizzle and light rain for us. Some signs lately. Looks promising though still.

     

    RainyNWales, yes as long as things don't go far too east North and South should get some storms.

    So it looks like a few days of hot and sultry weather then a breakdown to south westerlies and back to normal temps and boring weather .

    It's not looking great for storms across the coasts and southern parts, mid wales northwards looks like seeing the best chance for storms

    Just had a short, but heavy burst of rain here in Cardiff. The ground's so warm it's literally dried up already. Hoping for more of the same. :)
