Ok, I have to reply to this because it's misleading the entire thread, iv studied radars and the weather all my life, the low pressure that formed along the south side of the main low is pushing east,

Nathan "not a weatherman" Rao of the Express says "Army on Standby as heaviest SNOWFALL hits in next 24 hours" What a bellend!

Flood barriers coming down in Bewdley today, and the river is back within its banks. Max temp this afternoon 20.1 °C -- it's coming to something when the big 2-0 is a cause for celebration in mid-June, but right now I'll take it! A bit of light rain here and there, but otherwise a reasonably decent day, certainly compared to what's just gone. The sort of day when you wouldn't want to sit in the garden in the evening, but you could at least get things done without being soaked!

As for what's coming... looking at the forecasts and the models thread, there seems to be a lot of uncertainty as soon as the end of the week. To be honest, more days like today would be at least useable. It would be nice to have an extended period of calm, quiet, warm, sunny weather like last month's, now that the drought risk is well and truly gone, but I'm not sure I can see that any time soon.

Well, apart from a bit of mugginess ,we've had no rain here so far. Well we did have the rain how ever not 1 crack of thunder or even a flash of lightning. What I don't understand is that why the met office still has us under a yellow warning until 9PM tonight.

Those are the temperatures that the thermometers will be showing, but the extreme humidity will make it feel like low to mid 30s.

It will hardly be just normal rain all day and that cool forget that it`ll be tropical thunderstorms,its an extremely humid and unstable atmosphere we`re heading into next week like you`ve never experienced before.

Today was beautiful. I don't know what temperature it reached but lots of blue sky, warm sun and the occasional cloud to give you a break. A perfect summer's day

I recorded a max of 22.9 C at my house. Not a lover of the heat, so perfect for me!

An interesting couple of days ahead.

Tonight is our best chance of catching a storm here in the West Midlands, we might end up being a tad too far south but it's not looking too bad at the moment.

Unless there's a trend quite far west, our chances tomorrow are very low compared with tonight, but not impossible.

So far from perfect for us and once again for the West Midlands, it's all a bit edge of your seat stuff...but I think this is our best chance yet this year.

Just starting to rain here now. Some heavier bursts appearing on the radar on the leading edge. 

The forecast is more focused on places further north for thundery activity tonight, and looking at how it's going, I can see how that could well be the case.

But thunderstorms are fickle and really can crop up unannounced. Certainly going to be interesting. I still think we're very much in with a shout.

No doubt we're about to receive some heavy rain at least very soon.

Not a sound or drop of rain last night, today not looking great either today, BBC still insists on some activity from 10am, whereas the Met-Office, just has light rain from mid afternoon, storm threat a wee bit of a joke locally really. Latest pulse or rain (or storms!) looks likely to hit parts of the south-east and east anglia on it's current track.
