    Fairly humid here In Bexhill, as the frontal rain has traversed north. It was actually torrential for a good half hour, too.

    Clear slot seems adequate to spark something off in the next 1 or 2 hours

    Well, after plenty of rain this morning, the clear slot is making itself felt here now with some very warm sunshine and nice towering clouds. Fingers crossed it fuels some fabulous convective storms later.

    Watching radar and ppn really gathering momentum out west. Some bright colours. 

    Bristol up towards West Mids looks good for a potential storm.

    It started to rain steadily at 6pm which means that I won't have to water the garden.

    Hi Lauren, 

    Been refreshingly nice today to  experience a few hours of heavy rain. 

    Yes I really did just say that ?

    Summer rains are less depressing than winter, the roads and pavements dry up very quickly and more sunlight hours to make up for it.

    Keep the rain coming I say.. Absolute optimum growing conditions now.. Rain and sun Rain sun repeat 

    Ive owned my own bamboo company now for nearly a year. We grow and sell different types of Bamboo along side my landscaping business.. The larger bamboo species go into overdrive now.. Some of the shoots yesterday and over night have put over an 1" of new growth in 24 hours...In a week some will do over a foot of new growth... 

    Even when I wake up after a day like yesterday with no rain for ages.. All my plants look back at me like "wooooooooooooooooooohooo we is happy now" I see it as I have to keep them alive for them to keep me alive.. simples. Bamboo takes 7 times more co2 out of the atmosphere than trees. BUT I don't for one second mean that we don't need trees LOL. Trees provide eco systems and micro-biomes that bamboo cannot.

    I have to water my bamboo twice a day in summer morning and night that how much it drinks.. If i don't then the next day I can tell they haven't been watered

     

    Looking like Monday could be thunderstorm day.. again and then some VERY heavy substantial rain on Tuesday

    So which of these forecasts will be nearer the mark? Arpege going for a very soggy outlook for most of our Region, with up to 80mm of cumulative rainfall for many over the next 4 days (to Wed morning). The only other high res model publicly available that goes out that far - GFS - has nothing like the same totals.

    The key to the outcome will be a feature drifting up from France during Monday into Tuesday. If the current Met Office fax chart comes off I suspect Arpege will be nearer the outcome:

    In a way, this is rather reminiscent of late August 1976: after months without any meaningful rainfall whatsoever, the next two months saw one deluge after another...?:shok:

    The Met Office have issued a yellow warning for rain and the warning is literally covering all of East Anglia on Monday and late into Tuesday.

    Don't panic Pete! I'm hoping we are looking at a 2013 re-run, with a poor June but a much better July with some long, settled, sunny spells of weather. :oldsmile:

    At least that is what the background teleconnections (eQBO, Nino, MJO cycle, etc.) should deliver. But you must be a believer...... ?

    An impressive line of showers formed along the line of convergence of the wind flow today, even producing a lightning strike just south of Sevenoaks around lunchtime. To illustrate the convergence I've marked the Arpege wind chart for this afternoon.

    This morning's BBC/MeteoGroup take on the incoming rainfall for Monday into Tuesday (which aligns closely with the Arpege chart I posted yesterday) showing the potential for up to 60mm of rain. Meanwhile GFS still not in agreement, placing the largest accumulations further north. Arpege unavailable on Meteociel this morning so I can't post the latest view from the French model.

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
