A few flashes of lightening and thunder in the past hour to the south east of Sheffield.

The rain is very heavy now and the radar is very bright to a long way south, so it does look like the soaking is here.

Shame were probably not going to get a proper storm though

Took the dog for a walk Rodley playing fields (NW Leeds) as Bexford likes to go scuba diving for rocks in the Beck. Here's my dog chasing rocks in a half empty beck.

It had just started to rain but looking at the incoming cloud i quickly got out knowing what was coming. Less than 15 minutes later this was the same beck, at least 4ft deeper!

Warm humid day in sunny scunny today.

27 degrees with a 72% humidity (feels sticky but I've payed footy a 11am and still hot after that after putting on my man cream lol)

Dew point or 20 degrees

All in all a great day and occasionally a nice slight breeze

I know they aren't exactly that accurate, but when I got my car it was still registering 24c here on the coast about 20 minutes ago. Must be some local records being broken here, never known it so hot so late in the day.

Hey all, may seem slightly off topic but I thought it best to put it in here anyway...

 

I'll be moving up to Sheffield at the end of September because I'm going to university there - What should my expectations be with regards to the white stuff in winter?  Presumably, relative to my current location, I'll maybe be slightly worse off from easterlies but better from northerlies?  And generally better in marginal set ups due to the higher ground?

 

Cheers :)

Can only speak for Leeds but your similar in height and just being south. Straight notherlies just produce sun, frontal snow is good and easterlies will hammer you. A good westerly component to a north westerly will also provide.

All in all, a probable improvement.

Met office warning for today and tonight:

 

Heavy showers and thunderstorms will become increasingly likely late this afternoon and this evening across parts of northern England and southeast Scotland.

The public should be aware of the potential for localised torrential downpours, accompanied by thunder and lightning, bringing the risk of surface water flooding and some disruption, for example to travel.

There remains some uncertainty in just how widespread showers and thunderstorms will become later today, with conflicting signals offered by various computer models. However the area depicted is considered to have the highest probability of seeing some intense downpours, with localised totals of 20 mm within an hour and 50 mm in 3 hours.

Nice, I saw some lightning mainly towards north leeds but only flashes. Prefer those big forks and loud booms, hopefully see some tonight :)

The bulk of that storm was mostly for N Leeds. I was in east Leeds and we had around 13 - 17mm of rain in a short time period - but even once the rain had stopped, the lightning and thunder continued, very brightly and the thunder quite loud. When I looked at the radar echos, there was a very heavy area of PPN over Roundhay, which was where the lightning was most frequent.

Hi guys, I don't post on here that often but I wondered if anyone had any info on the damage yesterday's flood has done to Saltburn. It is probably our little ones favourite place so it will be really sad if there is any lasting damage, but from these pics it doesn't look good. http://www.whitbyseaanglers.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=31703.0

I've been around Hutton Mulgrave, Mickleby and Dalehouse (nr Staithes) today and there was quite a bit of water damage in the fords. Houses in Dalehouse village had been flooded. Had to rescue a driver who had bogged his car on the silt left behind in the watersplash.

Was up there yesterday afternoon and it was torrential most of the time I was there driving around the area but according to a customer it got worse around early evening and that's when the damage occured from the torrents of water that came down the becks and lanes.
