So, so lovely to be rained on at my allotment just now, that wet ground smell!! About 5 minutes of moderate to heavy rain, enough to make a few puddles.

Experienced the annual unpleasantness of flying ant swarms this afternoon in west London, they were getting in my hair, crawling on my face, trying to infest my car too, before I had to promptly shut the windows when the air con kicked in. Not nice, looks like players at Wimbledon were bothered by them too!

Seen that blob on radar just sitting over north london for ages. Looked quite intense too.

Nice to be able to talk about proper weather for a change.

They used to say that yes.They were a blinking nuisance this evening!!

Could be few rumbles about tommorow.And possibly Friday though Kent Sussex way more likely according to Met 10 day video. He also said there is a 'possiblity' of some really serious heat late next week. Personally,i can do without that!!

At last a change in wind direction to southerly, it's been stuck in the north east for what seems forever holding back the temperature expect this to ratchet up several degrees now down the eastern side

A low of 14.8c overnight and up to almost 18c already, light/mod wind from the south.

Chance of storms in the south west of our region this afternoon perhaps?

Ridiculously humid on my walk to work this morning. A thunder warning has been issued for most of the south east!

Thunderstorm yellow warning in effect for the area... would love to see some rain later. It's bone dry...no rain in weeks.

Just over 3 weeks since we experienced anything falling from the skies and even that was unexpected (around about 1mm) - foreseeable looks dry.

Can see a tower to my north, but the top seems to be shearing off.

My word we could do with some rain, the grass around here has gone brown/yellow and the drains have become blocked, council has been out twice now to try and sort it out. A thunderstorm would be delightful but looks better the further South and East of the region rather down my way.
