Interesting my lightning detector isn't detecting anything much mostly quiet which means it can't lock in to anything

We had 37mm here in Aylesbury altogether from yesterday afternoons downpours to last nights. We had 8mm on Sunday and 23mm on Saturday so we have had 68mm which is a lot.

Looks to be dying out on the radar. Still further possibilities today but the main chance around here is tomorrow pm.

People in Nottingham and derby for example should keep an eye on that intense cluster of thunderstorms over the next hour.

Shame we'll have to call it 'thundery rain' now as it's just a mass of heavy precip with the odd embedded weak thunderstorm. Electrical activity is currently very low.

Please stop using terms like ‘intense cluster of thunderstorms’. It’s misleading.

Thanks.

Absolutely, I just wouldn't call it an area of thunderstorms anymore. I don't think it's chucking out any lightning at all now.

I used that term only once it’s also misleading when people say it’s weakening I am simply pointing out some rather intense rain around that area with some thunderstorms mixed in if anything I’ve been very non misleading today but anyway moving on tomorrow looks good.

Complete dross this morning. Even the rain wasn't up to much. 

Really intense downpour just before midnight which was great - sat with the door open and enjoyed the cool breeze that came with it 👍

Lightning / thunder wise - nada as expected

I had a storm earlier before it weakened.

I believe there's already flooding on the road if not a lot of surface water. 

Yeah there was loads of surface water flooding here quite cool to see rain pelting down the way it did  🙂

It is pretty cool. All the cars are slowing down so I suspect there's a little flooding up the road.

Oh well, storm risk has disappeared for my area over the next 48 hours. Could have forecasted that myself...🤔
