    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

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

    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 ?

    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

    image.thumb.png.513bc8af7b2ccbda872cdc1180896244.png   image.thumb.png.fa7491d0fd3d61492171967df405b8cd.png

    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.

     image.thumb.png.330ec8b86c72980268efbe63fd12bd90.png

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

    image.thumb.png.d9dbcbc056b66f2abf505781b7bcea38.png

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

    image.thumb.png.c45f4556f4087230705e4a13cf49bbac.png

    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:

    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.

    Overcast and damp start in Eastbourne. Feels fresher in the light breeze but still pretty muggy.

    Are we really expecting more storms today? Just overcast with bits and pieces of rain and not overly warm, although quiet humid only 17c at the moment. Doesn't feel like there's much chance of T-storms later per the forecast but we'll see I guess.

    Light rain and very dark here. It's still very warn and stuffy in the flat after days of heat. I can't believe I'm saying this - but I hope we don't get any storms tonight. It was hard to sleep in the heat and the last thunder was at about 1.30am last night, so I'd take a decent nights sleep over any weather extremes at the moment.

    But - what a storm. Lightning every 2 seconds and torrential rain. I hope it's someone else's turn tonight. 

    I see we have a double thunderstorm warning for Saturday here - a general one and a more specific local one. Might not make any plans for Saturday.

    Still no thunder since April here, but frequent distant lightning in Northerly direction in late evening. Heavy rain this morning, very welcome for local gardens.

     Made the mistake of doing dusting n polishing around the home, within 5 minutes absolutely soaked through, surely that can’t be normal! Checked obs station, only 20c, but 94% humidity, that explains the puddle I’ve turned into 😜
