PM, I thought we in the Midlands was expecting a day like to day for tomorrow 'Showery' but for tomorrow, less of them! if that makes it any better :hi:

Very wet day, rain nearly all afternoon and radar shows no end soon. No thunder as usual, even with an unstable atmosphere but still possible.

Hmm. If you looked at the forecasts on the TV right now, it's a clear sunny start to the day. So why am I looking out at thick cloud and drizzle?

Bit of a surprise popping up to our southwest. Can see the tops of them. Maybe we will unexpectedly break the 2017 duck this evening at last?

We have a shower passing through at the moment. This shower doesn't have any history of anything exciting, the ones to the south are hardly active either but 2017 has been so dire...just one rumble will do. Just to get us on the scoreboard at least!

A nice summers day here with plenty of long sunny spells and hardly any wind after a cloudy drizzley start in the early hours.

Yes, after my whinge this morning, it cleared up late morning & was a lovely afternoon. The sun at lunchtime was absolutely scorching, any longer than my 20 minutes & I would have burned!

A torrential downpour followed the clearing of the rain band this afternoon. Electricity free of course. Surprised by how warm it was too, expected a cooling down with the clearer weather, but it was a little muggy if anything.

Five days left to prevent this July being the first thunder-free one since 1997 here.

Better late than never.

:nonono:nothing here! Really am starting to think it is going to take a miracle to get anything around here! 13 months without hearing any thunder is diabolical! Not even a thundery shower like some of the Black country had today! Everything seem to break up as soon as it approaches be it from the southwest or the northeast, i watch in amazement as it spiits then magically forms together 30 miles away! There has to be some reason, it cant just be bad luck anymore! 

 

Thats my rant over. Roll on tomorrow, off to Skegness to soak up the rain for the week........

I'm having a break in North Lincolnshire this week, in the last hour some cracking lightning shows here...happy is me! I Understand your frustrations though, most lightning storms are hit and miss but I can't remember the last wide spread/across the Midlands full on lightning show we had......seems years ago :blink2:

Only heard a faint rumble in Broseley and that was from a storm just south of Bridgnorth, can't remember if it was last month or month before...

Quite funny really, that one single loud clap was heard by many people in the area. Friends on Facebook talking about it too.

Been so long no-ones really used to it anymore!
