The cloud is building up and it was a dull for a few minutes and then sun came out.  The barometric pressure is at 1007mb and it is Falling.  My barometer pressure has not been this low since early May.

Do we have any confirmation on the highest temp reached so far? 

Cambridge and Wattisham both 34.0C at 14:00. I'm sure there will be higher than that confirm though, as I've been higher than that today (not by much though!)

In these situations, the lightning radar is faster at picking cells up than the radar.. thats how explosive the atmosphere is and it's just let the lid off.

We've had precisely 3 blobs of rain and a few crack of thunder. The drought is over y'all.

Seeing larger clouds building up on the horizons! but sun beating down here.

35C on outskirts of East Cambridge ... truly repressive with the humidity, getting up to core body temperature level 😂

Someone saying NO RECORD for July likely ... but Around the Bungay and Diss area is definitely in with a shout of beating 36.7C or whatever it was

Can someone explain to me why certain areas are identified as being more at risk of storms i.e. yellow and amber zones. How is it known that storms would be worse there?
