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.

Don't think this is a very accurate measurement but I left a bucket out in the garden after emptying the paddling pool last night and there is now 15mm of water in it, after the storm earlier.

It's more like 4pm in winter here at the moment it's so dark!! Not heard any thunder yet...

I'm sure it's similar elsewhere too....but i don't remember it being so dark from a storm for a long time. More like a solar eclipse!

Still stormless after 6 days of low to mid 30s and potentially another 30 day coming up. More chance of pigs flying than storms initiating SE of London. 🙄

Well taking the boy down to Essex, thick low cloud and fog down to Stansted and then suddenly rain, then lightning and then the heavens opened. Absolute carnage on the M11 as the road flooded.

In South Woodham Ferrers and the sun is out. Still the storm took me completely off guard.

Oh no...the BBC's app-wotsit has curtailed today's 'thundery showers' from 12+ hours down to one! Who'd a thunk it: bugger all storms in the Triangle!:oldlaugh:

Wait a minute, is that a blob forming out to sea off the coast near Aldeburgh? Or is it an illusion or false radar return? Come on baby, come to momma 🤞🤞🤞

Following a brief shower and a few flashes & thunder around 3:30 it's sunny in Ashford with a temperature of 26 degrees and apparently a feels like temp of 31.

Positively Florida-feel.

I think we are in for a few surprises in the very SE corner of the country. Regardless of modelling... it just feels like it.

I've just read Nick F's storm forecast and to my untrained eye there are similarities to yesterday with the initiation zone around SW London before massive development as it moves off. This yielded nearly two hours of distant rumbles for us yesterday afternoon and a few drops of rain; better than nothing but still disappointing. 

On the bright side, yesterday evening was the most comfortable in days with the backdoor wide open giving us 26 degrees and not needing a fan to watch TV, although still needed one to sleep in the rest of the house. This morning, after the rain went through, the lounge temperature got to a low of 25 degrees for a much more relaxed breakfast than of late. It's amazing what a difference those few degrees make in keeping sane!

At 11am it is 26.2°c in my garden Haywards Heath West Sussex, feels hotter than that as it's really humid. 

Still no storms here what so ever, and starting to think there won't be any here. 

Will it be the 6th day in a row getting over 30°c 🤔
