Dunstable got a good snow cover but melted in the afternoon. Hills around the area did ok. I drove to the highest point in the Chiltrens to have my snow fix. Some photos from Wendover Wood this mornin

Nice bit of snow here this morning, so that means it won’t go down as one of the worst winters I can remember but only by the skin of its teeth . Photos below ?

Shower cloud lit up nicely by the low sun earlier this evening north of Heathrow where I work.

I can here the thunder now, and it sounds like a storm that can stay where it is. Rather than rumble rumble, it went rumble boom boom boom rumble boom. No thanks for that over my head lol. Mind you it doesn't seem that active. Hope I'm not speaking to soon.

Heatwave broken by light patchy rain moving up from France!

Jeez, what has happened in recent years to our imported storms?

Summer after summer as a kid I used to stand with my Dad on the beach watching storms over France tracking across the channel( usually two or three times per summer)

Even remember the words on the shipping forecast synopsis.

'Thundery low Paris ( or some other part of Northern France/Biscay) expected Isle of Wight ( or some other Southern uk part) by 0500.) They very often used to arrive by midnight.

I really cant see the SE coasts benefiting from the home grown stuff predicted for Southern England today?

Feel like we actually have a chance of a storm today in East Anglia. although I'm sure the Estofex Level 2 has probably jinxed that. Could do with the rain as much as anything. Everything is parched, my pond is getting very low, to the point I've got to come up with a rescue plan for the fish if it gets much lower. I keep the garden watered by pumping an old well in my garden, but its been dry for two weeks. The first time I've ever seen it do that.

I assume the French storm died and never got here? 
Morning all, 18c with 94% humidity greets me this morning, BUT, we have a breeze, no hurricane by any means, but a breeze and it’s lovely. So another day of heat to come, no storms because that would be insane for these parts, but I don’t care anymore, who needs thunder and lightening, that’s for the common folk 😝🤪🤞

Morning - just got below the “tropical night” threshold, down to 19.8c. A fair amount of lightning, not a lot of thunder, but we did get 6mm of rain around 3:30am which might save a garden watering this morning at least!

Currently sunny, humid and 21.4c

First tropical night here.

We have been dipping into the 19c's (19.6, 19.8 & 19 9) but last night got no lower than 21c.

Max temps have been very consistent here the last few days. Always between 32.5 - 32.8c.

Morning all,  

I have to juggle auntie duties with the weather today - any idea if the storm risk is morning or afternoon today?. Don't fancy being caught outdoors in the storm with the little ones.

edit:ignore, I hear thunder already.

Hello Lottie, yes I woke up at 5.30 to a wet garden.. Like a fool I damn near opened the sitting room curtains.  Luckily I didn't as it's all dried up in Tunbridge Wells and the sun is shining.  Its also starting to get humid again.  So fans being cranked up.

Good Morning folks

Our rain shield has been been broken at last. We had two minutes of large raindrops falling moderately heavily. That is probably it for the next month  in the mid Essex Desert. Still storm starved.

Kind Regards

Dave

So, this is the longest stretch of successive 34C+ days since 1961 (six and counting)...and I remember it! It was also when I learned that sunbathing, on an ants' nest, was nae a very good idea!:oldlaugh:

Storm just started here in north Essex. Lots of rumbling and heavy rain just started.

A look at the overnight model output shows no consensus about the where or when of storms today, although the evening favoured. Here's the best looking chances and times according to a selection of models.

Arome 10.00 298240412_THURArome10_00.thumb.png.6d8af45353323051d8006696c4fbe96a.png Netwx SR 17.00 1199037071_THURNetwxSR17_00.thumb.png.b1afa16721d1850238edf72d209a4b4f.png

So it's looking like the radar will be a must for where developments happen.  Just in the last hour some storms have bubbled up in the Region, so the Arome forecast looking good:
