Thicker cloud coming in from the West with Accas now.

Temperature has dropped to 25 and it's getting more difficult to see any blue patches of sky. Humidity is off the scale really and we've had a couple of light showers. I've just done a medium wave crackle test and it was negative, there's hardly any breeze to speak of so I reckon that if it happens at all it's going to be a few hours away. We're also in something of a rain shadow here, the Clwydian Hills soak up much of it before it can get here.

I have absolutely nothing to back this up, but I've just got a nagging feeling Bournemouth is well positioned.  I've actually got relatively high hopes of getting a storm early morning tomorrow.

Anyhow - good luck to all, wherever you are.

Very milky skies now but temperatures still at 29C. Forecast looks poor for much of Wales & the southwest, with patchy drizzle later tonight:nonono:

Just convective rain here unless the orographic lift from the Pennines sets anything off, at least behind this mess is clear skies again so it'll only take 2 hours for this lot to clear east.

Hi Guys this is my first post on here :) Also just started raining here in Wrexham and the humidity has gone through the roof and it feels tropical here. No thunder/lightning here yet.

Currently working in Llay, the rain has stopped here. Fingers crossed for something after 5 when I get home.

In Barnsley looks like a few showers coming up our way now, no lightning getting detected yet will keep you informed.

It's just murk, nothing interesting so far.  Convective blanket of sun blocking cloud widening sadly.

Is it just me or are things looking more promising south of the main risk area. All that cloud/rain can't be good for insolation; though, there's still the problem of finding a trigger.

And, of course, so you should be. The forecast for action *starts* at 6pm .... and ends around 3am tomorrow.

Were the storms in SW Scotland forecast, not seen much mention on here.

Still 27C with a DP of 19C, with the sun shining - but that mess is fast approaching.

I really do hope it clears quickly.

There is some definite convection going on around Glossop, some interesting structures to my South (towards Whaley/Buxton) and West (Manchester). Think if the caps going to break it will be between 17z and 19z

Hot and humid here with milky skies. Know we're not due anything tonight but that Met O warning for tomorrow morning has caught my eye...

  • Temperatures into heatwave territory and no rain

    Some parts of the UK could qualify for heatwave conditions later this week and it's not the usual suspects. No rain as water levels decline and how are the evening skies for LanuchAmerica viewing? Watch the video here

    High pressure continues to dominate our weather until at least early next week, with most staying dry and fine. The warm conditions will spread north, and the highest temperatures will transfer to the west as the high moves east and eventually over Scandinavia. Read the full update here
