The Northern end of that band will not push much further Eastwards now but the Southern end will continue to swing up from the SW in a North Easterly direction meaning that the band will eventually be

Glad you got something PIT 🙂

Had some v heavy rain here for a while around 4am and about 7 flashes I counted, some thunder but don't think we got the main bit in Rotherham.

What's our chances today, tonight and tomorrow looking like? 

Only 7 flashes? I was woken by thunder before 2am and it kept me awake right up till 4am when it reached its peak with very loud bangs of thunder with torrential rain and some large hail.

Maybe I fell asleep then. Saw the bright flashes around 4am and certainly heard the rain on the roof. Only 3mm recorded here though, so Bramley seemed to be a bit on the edge

its been a massive fail from the MO imo.

to put warnings out but nothing happen is very poor. they must have the technology to do this better. another belting impulse of rain with cells within moving up west coast again!!

I'm still baffled as to why we have been (and continue to be) under daily warnings for storms when, as far as I have seen, no models actually show (or showed) us getting any? And with the exception of storm central (Sheffield) I don't think the vast majority of us have seen, or will see anything in the next few days. Please correct me if I'm mistaken!

Latest Metoffice warnings now exclude the Yorkshire Coast. Hull had a storm yesterday lunchtime as I posted on here. On the coast onshore winds and sea fret are keeping temps down and reducing likelihood of storms, yesterdays Hull storm died as it tracked NE towards us. I think current setup is about probability, if you look at storm forecast on here its 10% for our area. So far storm forecast on here seems to have been fairly good at identifying areas most at risk, Metoffice less so, only issuing Orange warnings once the event is starting.

True... However there's a warning out for today again inland at least and the forecasts I've seen show no storms anywhere near Yorkshire. Hopefully we get something before this all ends!

We have had a strong northerly wind all day gusting to 30mph at times. It has been bringing sea fret in with it, been watching it blow past the spare room window like smoke while I work. This was the view on lunchtime bike ride today, which was curtailed owing to poor visibility, compare that with the view on a clear day...But at least its not been hot

Looks like this low cloud won’t lift at all today. Very unusual to get North Sea crud in August.

It's been a really poor day and it is ridiculous that this North Sea crud has persisted all day. Similar problems likely at times this weekend. It's been the only real negative to this hot spell of weather - the easterly muck element!

Yesterday too hot today grey and miserable but cooled the house down had to shut the windows this afternoon as inside was getting chilly !!!!!!

Looks this should be a feature for the next three days but as ever the darn stuff is unpredictable so if it clears it will get hot again.

North sea has had it's weetabix and brought drizzle as it's friend so another cool day in the offering.

It barely got above 15C here yesterday with thick fog and drizzle amounting to 0.4mm, and a further 0.4mm this morning too.
14.9C currently.
You only need to go south of the moors and even before the A170 it's a different world but not as hot as it has been.
Over the tops this side it could be mid winter with drenching fog scudding over the heather.

Different perspective, I have loved the cool of today's sea roke 
(a good old E. Yorks word)   

B  🙂

I would have spelled it Roak but not sure if any way is *correct* with a dialect term?
Here we often say oh no it's turning roaky again (or is it roakey 😛 )
(edit - spell check having a fit)

Hi, yes I wondered a while back how it was spelled.  Theory is it may derive from ancient Viking.
Old Swedish for smoke is röker.
Anyway, its a good local name   🙂

A very warm afternoon now clouded up not with north sea clagg but high level cirrus which I suspect maybe the remains of some Thundery showers to the south east. Clagg should come back tonight and anybodies guess what will happen tomorrow. Shall it stay or shall it go.

9am at Whitby, cold damp sea mist, 2pm in South Cheshire warm and sunny. What a contrast! I felt sorry for the hordes of people heading on to the A64 for Scarborough, Whitby and Bridlington!

It is nice to feel cool dampness the odd day but when it goes on day after day you soon get fed up and long grass etc is wringing wet.
Yesterday was quite windy and the cut off line was around Rosedale again
It's not that unusual in August i recall several times heading down to Whitby regatta and it was like this - sometimes the firework finale was cancelled due to thick fog

Local drunks are out again despite the cloud and damp feel to things. I guess they used to go to the pub and annoyed everyone there or they just recently slid down the path of too much booze.

Back to the weather there maybe some interest next Monday and Tuesday and if we are lucky some left overs tomorrow night.

Could well some interest tonight as Storms get going much further east than suggested by the morning charts. It's just a question whether they will survive this far. Then good chances tomorrow and less of a threat Tuesday. Radar watching time.
