    Parts of the nearby continent (especially western parts of Germany in terms of severity) took the full brunt of the storms yesterday as we know - and the chart below shows the massive distribution of spherics up to the end of yesterday.

    Posted Image

     

    Of note for our region on that map is the line of activity which made landfall from the channel around Dungeness and then tracked due north through Kent mid/late yesterday evening. Whilst out to the shops yesterday evening between 9pm and 9.30pm I stopped to take these pics of that line of activity as seen to the east and south east of me in Hastings. Lightning flashes and a few forks could be seen every now and then as the sun set  - coming out of the dark bases of the clouds over the sea maybe some 20 miles or so away from me in the eastern most part of the channel.  A few further off rumbles of thunder were heard shortly after I was back at home - but the last of the storms  missed just to my east as the chart indicates.

     

    The setting sun was reflecting on the cumulonimbus bases in the distances and gave the dusk sky some eerie glowing colours. The pics were taken at about 5 to 10 minute intervals from the first to the last one.

    Afternoon all

     

    Another warm day had here, aircon in the office comes in handy on days  like this, mainly sunny with some cloud about, more of a breeze too but dry still.  21.6oC in the shed.

     

    Have a nice day :)

    I moved to beds seven years ago from the southeast coast( which got snow when i moved) and we had snow every year apart from nothing at all last winter. I'm still getting over that and now i have my lack of big storms now. 

    Beautiful day out there, very windy but warm. Where does this wind come from? By the sea i understand but it always windy here! :cc_confused:

    Good evening all from a warm and sunny Hastings.

     

    I really have been spoiled  by the weather since arriving down here last Thursday evening for a 2 week stay. Every day since then has seen at least a few hours of warm sunshine and the icing on the cake was last nights thunderstorm, the first night time display I have seen for some time.

     

    I love it down here.

    Nice day here, reached 23C despite an annoyingly strong wind this afternoon. Week ahead looks very acceptable :-)

    I'm in the country side and it's quite open, as well as near a golf course. Where I live isn't quite as windy as where the school is, that's like standing in a wind tunnel at times, freezing in winter! :cold:

    Hi Dami! Typical, the snow turns up when you move from the coast! At least you got snow in your new area you moved into, that's a bit of luck! I think we just got used to regular snow falls, even here in London, I got snow five years in a row! So last winter was hugely dissappointing! Big storms seem to to do the splits when they hit my area, the main bit always moves off to the east or NW, leaving me with a one bit of lightining, two rumbles of thunder, if lucky and some medium rain! :laugh:! I did experience a thunderstorm a few years ago which bought flash flooding and marble sized hail, very rare event round here these days! Cooling off here, 19.0c, sunny!

    Stunning day here also. Been very warm and sunny. That breeze today in my eyes had just helped it feel that bit more cormfortable to work in.

    Currently have clear blue skies and a nice light breeze.

    Just on last night. I woke around 1ish I think, had the windows open and we were in the middle of on proper torrential downpour.

    Evening All :hi:

    So we was unlucky this time, little bitter over it all. But it's silly to get concerned over something that is so insignificant, I hope you are all well - and making the most of the summery weather :good:

    I concur BB - down there is refreshing and therapeutic for the mind

    Evening BB. Great to hear you are finally well enough to get out and about, and especially to one of the places you speak so fondly about. Have a great holiday mate.

    HI!My home town used to get snow, many happy winters on the downs, then it went snow-less for years..then one year happily told my now hubby that we don't get snow and we had half a foot and that was in later in the year as well!. Same with thunderstorms - loads when i was young -nothing- then the imports started and last one we had the drains couldn't cope and i almost had a flood in my bathroom. 

    Roll on years later and i have noticed with great annoyance that where i live now, the storms look like they go out of their way not to hit, I don't think i've had a true direct hit yet.Take yesterday, cloud all around and a circle of brilliant sunshine. Where I used to work, amazing storms, but a phone call home and nothing but sun.

    Gah....

    Crystal clear skies here still. It just has a dark blue tinge to it as the sun sets in the far west. Breeze has now dropped, and I have a funny feeling tonight's sleep will be pretty uncomfortable.

    Think I may invest in a bedroom fan tomorrow.

    Posted Image

    dry and warm with long sunny spells

     

    wind flow variable but very weak

     

    temps up to 24-25 degrees

     

    reduce by around 5 degrees on coastal regions

     

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    thursday

     

    Posted Image

    a weak north west flow north of london

     

    breezy south of london on a north west flow

     

    rain = nil

     

    temps

     

    Posted Image

     

    up to 25-26 degrees

     

    again drop around 5 degrees on coasts

     

    should see sunny spells but cloud may be an issue late pm mainly north of our region

     

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    friday

     

    Posted Image

    a breezier north west flow

     

    rain = nil

     

    temps

     

    Posted Image

     

    again around 25 degrees maybe a locally higher

     

    cloud maybe an issue north eastern and coastal regions which would see temps around 16-18 degrees

     

    friday night may get wet

     

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    saturday

     

    Posted Image

    a windy and much cooler north east flow

     

    rainfall

     

    Posted Image

     

    Posted Image

     

    Posted Image

    there are showers around but i am not convinced on this yet

     

    maybe tomorrow will be more clearer

     

    temps

     

    Posted Image

     

    around 23 degrees

     

    however east-north east coasts look cold around 15 degrees

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

     

    sunday

     

    Posted Image

    windy north east flow

     

    so cloudcover looks likely

     

    rain = nil

     

    temps

     

    Posted Image

     

    around 22 degrees but feeling cooler in the wind

     

    the warmer looks the further west and south west of our region

     

    east coast and north east coast temps around 14-15 degrees and that wind likely to be a pain

     

    anyway thats my lot

     

    be back tomorrow
