Nightmare last night...power cut, no fans or anything - it was like trying to get to sleep in a sauna. Lightning was flashing all around and as there were no lights in the house the lightning showed u

Out on this morning's walk and as promised this time with camera at the ready. And I was lucky enough to hit the jackpot with this great display of virga from cloud in the distance. And you can see wh

This is not meant to cause offence but I’d appreciate it if you (and others) cease putting a dampener on genuine excitement at the current (and brief!) extreme weather. It’s a weather forum for weathe

Awoken by lightning and thunder, busy little electrical storm with a lot of lighting high up and behind cloud. Some nice forks as storm moved off, one heavy thunder rumble that shook the ground but was a fair distance away. Sharp heavy shower as well. Slowly moving north but a short while ago lightningmaps.org showed a lot of the UK covered in current or echoes of strikes, quite an outbreak.

Woken up by incredibly loud thunder, house shaking stuff even when at a distance. Heaviest rain my station has ever recorded in 14 years! 1284mm/hr!!!! We only got 1.6mm but we had it in the space of seconds.

I think they may have all peaked a little bit early here. Cracking storm with lighting all over the sky now in Norwich had a little heavy rain but appears to have got stronger through Suffolk. Joys of being on a night, and nature puts its own film on

10 hours ago, Froze were the Days said:

Could be a tad warm that, so not sure how accurate that is (FARS) as maximum temperatures in East Anglia on that day was generally near to 32c. I've got a Stevenson Screen which I built myself with British Standard max/min separate bulbs and seems to be reasonably accurate but is hard to tell to what degree accuracy as there are local variations.

Interesting to note just how warm it became on the date you mentioned: 27th July, my memory has obviously let me down as I thought most of the heat was largely over after Wimbledon last summer.

I'm sure it's pretty accurate. Official stations near me showed slightly warmer in a few locations. That temperature was recorded at 1.34pm. There was high level cloud sweeping in from the west that day which them tempered maximum temperatures. Highest temperatures were Bury St Edmunds eastwards that day, so many stations as you say did record 32Cish as a max.

MetOffice text forecast for tomorrow now saying maximum temperature of 39C for East of England. Always tends to be accurate as it's forecaster written rather than automated from raw model data.

I think last night officially goes down as the single best night for Storms ever. 

I've never experienced what I did last night in terms of length of lightning over 2 hours.. And it was constant at one point.. 

 

Absoultey stunning...

Really poor night for sleeping last night had a thunderstorm about 12.30. Think temps today for where I live are going to get higher than forecast on the bbc and meto as they predict 24 for me today with it already being 20 surely it will be higher. Exciting day tomorrow. Think we will all enjoy the fresher weather by Saturday the weekend. Think August is going to be a hot one

No storms here which I’m pleased with as wanted sleep (and we’re lucky enough to have had several decent storms here already this year) but woken by the wind blowing the blinds at one point.

Morning all,

Well what an uncomfortable night for sleeping, that was.

Up early, to have Breakfast with my Wife before she set off at 6.30 to start her early shift, at a Chislehurst Care Home.

Just watched a recording of Weather for the Week ahead, Louise Lear on shift.

Louise began by mentioning last night's t/storms. As we know they've moved away North now. Today will be dry and very sunny, with  a Max. of 32c for the London area. On into Thursday and a Low starts to threaten from the S.W. but ahead of it w're still dragging in that hot Continental air. So another sultry and uncomfortable night beckons, overnight Min. Temp., only falling to 19/20c for the S.E. corner. Thursday will be another hot and humid day with plenty of sunshine and the peak of this current hot spell, Max. temps around 37c for the London area, nigh on 100f in "old money". Should this occur, it will top the July record of 36.7c, set at Heathrow on 1st July 2015. But a change will come on Friday, a weak cold front will come in from the W. with just an associated band of cloud, not producing much in the way of rain, Max.Temps down to 28c for the S.E., although a 30c is still possible for the London area but it will certainly feel different to Thursday's weather.

On into the Weekend and a slight change in emphasis to earlier Forecasts, in the Week. Rain could well be moving westwards on Saturday with Max. Temps down to 23c, for the London area. Sunday sees the Front responsible for Saturday's rain, moving away westwards with a little brightness possible later in our Region, Max. Temps around 25c for the London area.

Drier and warmer still as we move into Monday, Max. Temps back up to 26c for the London area, as we start a new working Week. Thereafter, it does look like the potential for Low pressure to try and move in from the S.W. but it doesn't look like having much influence on our Region. There is the potential for pressure to remain high with drier and warmer weather, holding sway. Temps. should be less extreme than recent days, though!! 

And that is the Weather for the Week Ahead, seen through the eyes of MeteoGroup's, Louise Lear.

Regards,

Tom.   :hi:
