That storm last night was a treat, lots of lightning and very close too with loud thunder and intense rainfall.

Last a while too.

Few more showers next couple of days then back to the heat and dryness.

We were more or less under a chain late yesterday, and it was rumbling from 6pm until after midnight.
34mm from intermittent heavy rain - looks greener already.
Interesting streams and rivers have only gone up modestly suggesting most of it soaked in to the ground.

A mixed bag this week whilst parts of the SE swelter in the low 30's we'll be in the 20's nights will be a mix of muggy and the odd fresher one
