you don't but it helps.

Best (UK) storm I've ever experienced followed a day of drizzle at 15 degrees, warm front moving up from the SW increasing temp to 21 degrees at the same time as a MCS moving in from France. Bang.

It looks to me like it's going to be one of those days with a lot of crud hanging around from this mornings stuff. Probably a late night tonight too!

10:30 update - NICE!!

http://www.ukweatherworld.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/121664-convective-outlook-tuesday-18th-june-2019/page__pid__1084381#entry1084381

 

Primary Focus is the development which occurs from 15Z Onwards across the SE of England, upwards of 50,000 strikes possible through the evening and tonight (that may be an understatement) and considerable C/G action and within the cloud as well. Gloud Growth all the way up to 40,000 ft once we get the shortwave and cooling aloft above 500mbs (there is quite intense differential thermal advection occuring later today and it makes the profile of the atmosphere highly unstable) Risk of Torrential rain rates (in excess of 150mm/h and surface accumulations of 50mm in places. Small Hail and Straightline gusts exceeding 50 knts esp across the BLACK BOX AREA THIS EVENING and at FIRST TONIGHT .

According to my weather station and along with the Met Office, Wunderground and the weather outlook all report that it is raining in Thurrock.  It is bone dry and there has not been a drop of rain yet.  I doubt that there will be thunder as there is no sight of the Nimbostratus clouds.

Just started raining in Greenhithe, the other side of the crossing, so will be with you shortly!

One of the better storms in the last 6 years for me was a squall line coming in from the north west I think it was in Jan or Feb gave lightening, thunder, large hailstones and torrential rain for a short time. summer storms seem to have deserted my location

Some people get headaches before storms. This has been endlessly debated. But I hear a strange high-pitched hum far off in the distance. Now I'm a cynical goat and I put this down to either something psychosomatic as I usual know stormy weather is about - and the hum is probably me being hyper-vigilant to distance noises,so picking up other noises I'd usually ignore when I'm listening normally. I have tinnitus but thankfully it's a white noise tinnitus that my brain has learned to cancel out 90% of the time. But this is not a tinnitus noise either. Anyone else get odd symptoms when there is thundery weather about??

Anyway - rain has just started here.

Thank you EWS, I got the name of the thunder cloud wrong as it should have been Cumulonimbus as Nimbostratus clouds only bring rain.

Do you mean the "rain preview" on the app/website? That's automated and not fed by the high res model so won't pick up storms that have not formed yet.

If mother nature gets her act together and can get some lightning going in the channel around 9-10, I'm going to head to Worthing beach for the lightning show. 

I think we are a little bit too far west for a direct hit this time, unfortunately. Will be more East Sussex & Kent.

Oh yeah just checked... basically storms across Kent and nothing else. But that goes in line with the convective outlook and again, depending on what model blend they use for those graphics storms won't show. She did say that in a roundabout way... but yes, not very clear.

Started off beautifully today and now back to greyness - humidity up to 80% and DP up to 15c  

Seems to be some clearer skies coming through on the South Coast, should help things if we can get some sunshine/heat

Bet I (and others) only experience rain, humidity, a lot of cloud hanging around in the morning and just the briefest rumble of thunder...happens so many times in these situations. I much prefer a Spanish plume and a distinct line of showers moving northwards - June 10th 1994 was spectacular!

Sooo muggy this afternoon. A bit fed up as I couldn't take my son to an event due to the train strike, didn't fancy the walk along the river to Kingston in the rain and so ended up at the gym, which was alright, but not really what we had in mind. I just wish it would stop raining. And my head would be capable of clearing from overnight grog before 2pm. Anyway, let's hope there's a reward tonight in the form of a good old fashioned storm, for those who want it of course.

Humidity here is 60% temp is 20 deg.  Been overcast all day.  Not a drop of rain. Yet my daughter in Ditton has had heavy showers.  Bone dry and nothing on the radar yet.  This maybe one of the many times the storms miss me we shall see.
