I wonder whatever went wrong with poor old RainToday? It was the main goto site for many people for a long time but then, about a couple of years ago, it suddenly started glitching? So odd that it works for some of the time, but not for the rest. 

It's Twitter feed hasn't updated since 2012, so it's pretty much a zombie site now. A real shame.

Yes, the Met Office seem confident of the chance for some action round these parts later this afternoon. It certainly feels muggy enough right now.

Currently 21.1°C with a dp of 15.9°C

Looks like East Anglia (Norfolk) are going in line for those over the North Sea, still very quiet over the much of the UK for strikes.

No sign of sun still. Want this easterly gone now tbh, too much rubbish has been sucked into the flow and I don't think we will see another sunny day until the wind direction changes.

I hope i'm wrong but part of me thinks that these warnings are just to protect the metoffice's pride and backside after what happened over the weekend, because all the activity is over the Netherlands and Northern France, and it's very lively there, but with nothing at all anywhere on this side of the channel other than rainfall/showers. Like i said i hope i am wrong. Bright here, temp - 21.3C, so not exceptionally warm at the moment.

The track of these showers look like at the moment that they're heading mainly for Wales, the South-West and the western part of the Midlands.

Sun is slightly poking through. Been very humid all morning. Bit of a cooler breeze now. Birds are very noisy. I may be wrong but I think this side of Loughborough may not see much if any action.

Looks like western Germany and the Netherlands are gonna have some fun again, still hardly a sniff over here. Cloud burning back behind that small shower over west Wolves.

Pleasant sunshine here, but certainly pretty humid.

Judging by the latest radar returns, I reckon the SW quadrant of the region should be in for some fun & games very shortly. Still too early to say for the rest of us.

Dark enough in Telford TF3 about 2:30pm to need to put the lights on - back to bright-overcast out there now, no rain this afternoon... yet! 

NetWeather currently has TF3 forecast to have 23.4mm of rain in a wee while...! Other sites forecast light showers - will wait and see. I'm still getting the hang of which sites are more reliable for rain in the warmer months. I've got better at understanding the weather patterns for snow round here, but the rest of the year is far beyond me at present so I'm relying on forecast-sites!

There may be a few heavy showers around this evening, but far as storms, still nothing, it just isn't warm/hot enough, or the humidity isn't high enough, or both. Temp here peaked at 22.3C, but skies cloudied over and have dropped back down to 21.8C.

Radar looks interesting, however most of the action is well and truly to the south west, something of interest just to the west of Peterbourough, and possibly heading up to Loughborough/ Leicester.

 And something like a tongue coming out of France and licking the rear of East Anglia, although that appears to be breaking up.

 East midlands Airport forcast looks like we *may* see something http://en.allmetsat.com/metar-taf/united-kingdom-ireland.php?icao=EGNX

It doesn't look any drama is gonna happen this time, that shower to the south-east of the West Mids, looks like it's fizzling out, unless my eyes are deceiving me.

It's as dead as a dodo here right now, no hint of storm activity whatsoever. Just a perfectly pleasant early-summer evening with plenty of hazy sunshine.
