I've attached two contrasting images of my back garden, one from July 2017 and the other from yesterday afternoon.

Believe me, we need all the rain we can get!

Mines just as bad Bish, Things should start to green up over the next week or so. Another moderate shower over me now, Should wash all the dust away at least.

Really? Looks like typical summer plantlife in almost every country except the UK.

Had dark rotating clouds earlier distant faint thunder to the S/SW,then a heavy shower.

But a torrential thunderstorm picked up from nowhere,frequent thunder and lightning,great way to end the long hot dry spell.

Absolute monsoonal deluge here in West Malvern. Been going for around 10 minutes now.

Edit: complete with thunder and lightning, although it's the intensity of the rain that's impressed me!

Good to hear of some intense thundery activity elsewhere in the region :good:

The sky to the south and west of here seems to be turning steadily darker........

Still bone dry here in Bewdley! Overcast, dark and a bit threatening, but so far every single shower has gone round us or decayed before getting here. A world away from the Worcester/Malvern deluge! Radar suggests this may not last much longer, though...

Yes, I was just thinking the same thing...

Never thought I’d be excited about the prospect of some rain! 😳🙄

It's still raining here but just moderately - still, I won't need to water the garden tonight! Even our alpine rockery was looking desperate.

Getting a light shower here now and looks like activity is pepping up all around us.

As for any thundery activity, it seems to have been ebbing and flowing for the past couple of hours to our southwest, so could be something to watch out for here as showers continue to build.

Still not a drop here! Stourport 3-4 miles to the southeast is getting soaked, as is Arley the same distance to the northwest. I've heard of snow shields, but right now Bewdley seems to have a rain shield! 😛

The wind has really whipped up in the last few minutes as well, usually a telling sign that something is afoot!

Heavy downpour. Nothing electric, so frustrating, annoying and bloody typical!

1 rumble now as it's passed by and engaged the hills to the East.

Well, over here, East of Lugabarruga, it's hot, dry, cloudy, dry, sunny, dry, muggy and did I mention dry?

All the future rain forecasts for here are now gone and it just shows cloudy sun. 

We seriously need rain. Everywhere is yellow here. Even seen trees looking like they are in dire need of water.

Managed a whole 1mm of rain in Evesham - enough to break the 25 day absolute drought but not making much inroads on the summer deficit!    Though a slight chance we may get another wee bit from the stuff currently over west Glos of it maintains its trajectory and doesn't dissipate first ....

It’s spitting here - not quite sure it classifies as rain really though... 😏

Ended up with about a dozen drops of rain here, the sort you wouldn't even know had fallen without a very close look at car windscreens. So I guess not an absolutely dry day, but (short of another shower tonight) this will still be the 27th day without measurable rain.
