Nowt in Norwich, been warned all week and not a drop, flash or rumble. Living up to the dryest county! 

Will that mass off the east coast head inland?

The deluge off coast incoming....

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.

Overnight storm here in Hadleigh, South Suffolk at around 01.45 am. Delivered 15mm of rain over about 45 minutes but not excessive amounts of T&L. Nice storm impacting Norfolk this morning:

The camels have now left and the nomads have removed their tents form the arid land. The Mid Essex Desert is no more. Heavy rain from 10.00 pm for an hour or so with strange flashes in the sky, From memory I believe it might be called lightning.

Im still waiting for a decent storm, seen some impressive displays over the last 2 nights, but they've stayed out in the channel, still, at least it's a lot cooler, and I managed a better night's sleep last night. Hopefully later, I'll see some proper action, if not, well, that's life. Have a good day all

Finally after days of missing the storms we had a lot of rain, lightning and thunder last night in Rickmansworth, more rain this morning but still very muggy, the lawn and growing veg very happy 😊

Apparently the OH heard distant rumbles earlier, seems a storm of sorts managed to stagger inland as far as Norwich. Still bone dry here but looks as if we might get some light drizzle for a brief period soon. Hurrah 🙄

We need this low cloud crud to burn off to get the storms going.... I'm hopefully there's more of a chance for breaks today than yesterday. If that happens then happy days. If not it's going to be another day of isolated events... but today's set up is certainly more in favour of EA than yesterday.

Morning all,

Although a lot cooler this Morning, as some have stated above, still very humid.

Not surprising when you view the recent Air Temperatures, alongside the Dew Points, around our Region.

See Meteociel Charts for both, below:

               TEMPERATURES                                           DEW POINTS

The Air above our Region, is almost fully saturated.

Have been impressed with the METO's Fax Charts, recently.

Their Forecasting of likely Convergence Zones, have been pretty accurate in my Book.

Their Forecast Fax Chart for Midnight, last Night, indicated a likely Convergence Zone, close to the Thames.

This resulted in a train of Thundery Weather, stretching ENE > WSW across N.London, and parts of our Region.

They suggest there will be a similar set up, in the same area again at Midnight, Tonight.

And it's still Forecast to be there, around Midday Tomorrow.

We had some flashes of Lightning and cracks of Thunder, around 10 PM last Night, here in S.E.London.

I was totally oblivious to it, had "crashed out" earlier, courtesy of the number of sleepless Nights I've had recently.

There's obviously plenty of "juice" in the Atmosphere, as can be seen from the Thundery ppn, tracking across East Anglia, at the moment. If I were a Storm lover (and I'm not), I wouldn't give up hope of seeing some pyrotechnics, just yet!! 

Very pleased to see Overnight Model Runs continue with a theme of cooler conditions, and those deep orange 500mb colours, being "chased" away now.

With it turning more unsettled, I wouldn't mind placing a small Wager, on there being an equivalent amount of Thunder in my "neck of the woods" in the next few Weeks, to what I've witnessed in the nigh on last 8 and a half Summer Months, with Temperatures still relatively high.

To paraphrase a saying used in Bill Clinton's, successful 1992 Presidential Campaign:

"It's the unstable Atmosphere, Stupid".

Regards,

Tom.  :hi:

Wish i could send you some of what we've got, it's been horrendous here this morning with heavy rain and it's also very dark with it.

Having an afternoon out later, for a few drinks with the in-laws to be. Don’t want any rain, wind or thunder as it’s on the local harbour arm where we have bars and food stalls - so it’ll probably do all three!

Currently cloudy, calm and 19.1c

Suns now out here, so temps and humidity will rise, but after this mornings epic fail, after initial excitement, missed me a couple of miles, I shall not believe any storm is going to reach here until it’s literally over my head 🤫🤔

What if I turned up with a bass drum and some light sticks? Would it help?

Meanwhile we've had 10 minutes of drizzle. NFN.
