According to radar, my cloud has grown and i'm in some rain. Went out to collect washing still hung up and it wasn't damp anywhere but that lovely rainy smell. One  of the best smells in the world.

Well my late father would certainly agree with you (who passed away just before Xmas)...he put this down in his eulogy 'that warm rain on a summer's lawn just brought out the fragrances of everything surrounding'...

My late grandad passed away February aged 92. He used to say the same thing. Loved his garden. He always said during life it’s not the materialistic things you’ll remember at the end it’s family, friends, experiences and nature. Think he was on to something

This has developed quickly in the past 30 mins and seems on course for the southeast .

I believe that is known as petrichor; Could be wrong though!

I heard on James O'Briens mystery hour on LBC, that the smell you think is rain is actually the smell of the pollution being washed off the roofs and roads when the rain comes in ? 🙄

I always believed it was certain chemicals being released from the plants & soil upon moisture contact...

Very nice. Here's hoping they avoid the sharp right swerve this time. The models seem to suggest we should do well tonight, but you know, it's the weather, fools out of all of us etc. Light rain here in Surbiton, felt nice and cooling for the dog walk.

The smell that creates petrichor occurs when chemicals produced by soil-dwelling bacteria known as actinomycetes are released. These aromatic compounds combine to create the pleasant petrichor scentwhen rain hits the ground. Courtesy of Wikipedia lol

Nice hypothesis, unfortunately, it's utter nonsense!

Same here Ben! Looking forward to some extreme heat as an extreme weather lover ( also looking forward to a storm tonight if im lucky enough), not so great for what i have to endure at the weekend! Got a pretty intense weekend of training....bring it on! 

Would love a good storm overnight but not holding much hope. Every met office warning this year for thundery weather hasn’t materialised here. 

Fingers crossed tonight delivers.

Looks like  that it is swerving east of London again though @Surrey

serously though would love a serious downpour and thunderstorm to clear this god dam pollen, if only for a few hours.

havent tasted or smelt a thing for four days now.

bloody hayfever

Are there any good radar pics anyone can share?  So love a good storm, however, rather it was on a Friday night so that I can stay up and watch!

Note that there are new cells developing rapidly north of Rennes (west of the main focus currently).  I have a feeling that the radar is really going to come alive over the next hour.
