    Dipped to 28.1 an hour ago now back up to 29.0- this SSE wind direction is fantastic, it's making a kind of reverse Cheshire Gap effect. Shawbury is 3C warmer than Hereford at 1700, for a change!

    Looks like we maxed at 28.3°C here - not very often that Shrewsbury is the Midlands hotspot!  8)

    Having come home from a few days in London where there was a surprise thunderstorm from 5-6am this morning, it would be good to get a corker tonight. The parents have told me there was thunder and lightning here last night but with virtually no rain at all. Feels a lot cooler here though, heatwave hasn't quite reached the West Country yet!

    I think Church Lawford was showing hotter than Shawbury, but Shawbury is nearly always a degree or two colder than Shrewsbury. I wish Preston Montford would put their temps up somewhere for me to compare to.

     

    That reverse Cheshire Gap effect is showing right to the coast, Liverpool at 25-26 while inland northern England is struggling to top 22 in many places.

    This morning mostly cloudy with some brighter spells and occasional sunny intervals. More general sunny spells (often hazy) this afternoon.

     

    Max Temps 22c at Mumbles which is only slightly higher than 21c at 2am last night. and 23c at Blackpill.

    Storms I get tend to arrive mornings, tomorrow could well be a repeat of 7th June this year with a decent storm around 7-8am

    HI ALL.

    just watching the storm over northern France and WOW, kent looks to be some where in the firing line.

    also if you go onto Blitzortung.org and turn on the detectors on the left hand side it shows  every detector picking up most of the strikes which stands at 3476 in the last 20 mins.

    Ian F forecast looked good not amazing but plenty of lightning mentioned in his forecast so that's enough to convince me to stay up depending on developments

    Looking good to our south west at the moment, rain building in the channel and the clouds to my south west look very stormy!

    Tracking Directly North too!! Not east! So we got hope!! Think the Bay of biscay stuff could head north!

    Is it just me or is everything shifting further East? Was up till 6am this morning waiting for the storms to show up and all I got was heavy rain, a few distant flashes over Wolves way and some very distant thunder.

    So are storms likely to develop over the channel later tonight/tomorrow morning and head into England and Wales, or are these storms heading into the south east the main event tonight?

    Looks more of a southeast event to me, I could be wrong we might get one or two thunderstorms in the early hours but nothing as intense or severe as further south and east

    Looks like 3am for action around our way I'm confident at the moment of seeing some electrical activity.
