What’s a lightning cluster !

It was quite strange I thought how these storms developed. We had some torrential rain around 6pm here which lasted around half an hour, but it seemed most storms, including the few that developed west of Glasgow, really began to pack a punch when they went further inland. Wondering if the raised ground in Lanarkshire might have had a role to play maybe.

Still seems a lot of rain in the Edinburgh and lothians areas.

There's another word that goes with cluster. Begins with F. 

Just dark grey here. With bats. Not fruit bats.

Some parts of Glasgow remained dry all day. West of Pollok Park dry all day yet other side of the park you had flooding.. Even smelt BBQs earlier on in SW Glasgow as there was nice evening sunshine and heat with it too.. To be a lot cooler tomorrow and into next week.. I dare say any good temps won’t be returning till next year..

Lashing down here again for the third time this evening. Not as heavy as last night but still very wet!

Storm was north of EK , seemed to head East . Weather has been in a strange rut . Walking to work has been Russian Roulette with the rain at 5 to 6pm .  Plus the humidity , back of my head sweats .

It's a soggy start, it won't take much more rain to have us swimming. I wonder if the tatties are going to need watered this year? The sprinklers were used full tilt last year but not at all so far this year.

A not unpleasant morning here. It's dull but bright and we seem to be avoiding the rain so far.

Pouring it down again, I was planning on going fishing later if the rain clears the west coast this afternoon.

Highly unlikely but given all the rain and humidity the biggest problem is blight just because the farmers have not been able to spray them enough to keep it at bay.They are already burning them down and chopping the tops in my area leaving huge tracks as they do it.Very wet and 10c here

They have killed off some of the plants in that field in my earlier picture, they must have been sprayed as it is around half the field in complete sections.

Good Morning all!

It’s bleak out there! 14c, chilly NNW wind and raining...sounds more like our normal Scottish Summer in August. 😀

Baby seagulls are enjoying it.

Does not look as though any heat/thunderstorms will be returning in the short to medium term but some usable days of sunshine/showers and temperatures around 16/17c for the week ahead.

Not the best outlook but I really can’t complain after the Summer so far.

Enjoy yer Sunday!

Morning all.

Complete opposite of what I expected to wake up to this morning, as it is  dry, cloudy and calm.   Fife appears to be  'in the eye'   of this rotation?  Was up at five a.m. and looking at the radar,  nothing has moved.  A very red sky at that time though.

Fantastic pictures posted yesterday the cloud formations were incredible I've never seen the likes, sadly all the action was located about thirty miles away to the south, still we got to see a few flashes and heard lots of thunder...way better than the last few days.

I'm surprised that we've not seen an Amber warning for rain yet, particularly today given the persistent heavy rain on top of all the recent flooding.

This rain is pretty bad here. Doesn't look is moving very far according to the radar.

Rainfall totals are going to be ridiculous for this month if it keeps on like this.

Well we are out of the dry spot now as we have steady moderate rain.   Radar now looks to be filling up for these parts.

Radar says rain, skylight says no rain.
