    More like October here than July - 100% overcast, strong to gale force winds, rain on the way.  Not even particularly warm.  Where has the summer gone?  ?

    Getting worse now, as if that was possible.  Really low cloud base makes it look like we’re fogged in, but really it’s very low cloud with heavy drizzle driven sideways in the strong wind - exceptionally strong for July.  Bound to have some damage in the garden by the end of the day tomorrow because everything is heavily in leaf and not able to stand up in these winds.  It’s quite disheartening.

    Cloudy and cool here today, much like the previous few days but without the drizzle 😉.  Yes, it’s dry here in Pembrokeshire and there is some hope of a few slightly warmer and sunnier days to come.   Maybe I’ll get a chance to see that comet, after all.  But don’t hold your breath....

    Could be quite a surprising difference in maximum temperatures in the UK over the next few days.  Might be as much as 15C cooler in my location compared to the south east....  35c v 20c?  Not that I’m complaining....

    After a very cloudy but humid start to the day the sun has finally emerged and it is having an immediate effect on the feel of the weather.  It’s still humid, with very little breeze, and with the sun out it now begins to feel like a heatwave - well, a Welsh heatwave anyway 😉.   I expect the night to be warm and a little uncomfortable but nothing like as bad as Londoners will suffer.  Tomorrow will probably be the warmest day of the weekend in this part of the world but I don’t think any records will fall.

    Very distant rolls of thunder have now turned into a pretty constant rumble which looks to be coming from the far south west - around Pembroke possibly.  It also looks like Swansea is getting a decent thunderstorm too.  It’s all moving north by northwest so I expect we will see something interesting here later in the day....

    Thunder and lightning incoming over Pembrokeshire. I can see lightning and hear lots of thunder just out to sea from Pembroke. Mammatus clouds over Pembrokeshire !!!

    We had a ten minute spell of intense rainfall here accompanied by thunder but the lightning wasn’t such a feature as it was mostly concealed by cloud cover.  The noisy bit has moved away towards Newport and Dinas Cross now but it’s still raining.  There’s more lighting on the radar around Laugharne and Pendine but seems to be headed this way so maybe some more to come....?

    The day ended fine and sunny yesterday after the rain and thunderstorms had all passed away to the north.  It’s a lovely start this morning too, with blue skies lit up by the rising sun and mist in the valleys gradually lifting.  Quite warm but not expected to be uncomfortably hot today, thankfully.  Gorgeous!

    Yes. - I just spent half an hour gazing at it in wonder.  Looks like it’s over Carmarthen or even further east, so maybe 25 miles away.  Is this too far for the sound to travel?  The cloud top must be at least 10,000 feet and easily visible for us.

    Gutted i missed the storms last night, went about 8-10miles to the north of me, looked amazing from what I could see from that distance. Hopefully something will crop up around where im going to be working today in Cowbridge!

    It’s very wet and windy here already but worse is forecast for tomorrow night.  And it’s still August.  Sigh.

    Blowing an absolute hoolie in Tenby right now. Dread to think what’s happening on the campsites in the area: would have thought there will be a lot of folks with trashed tents sleeping in their cars...

    Feels like a proper winter storm.

    Wind speed expected to peak in this area in the early hours tomorrow morning with gusts up to 60mph but I suspect we will get higher than that.  Strong winds predicted for the whole of Friday and Saturday.  Hope this isn’t a foretaste of October and November.....
