Hi Andy,

i thought exactly the same as you about the daughter cell and what a carbon copy of what happened yesterday when it looked like it was going to miss us! 

I saw the three CG strikes too that you and Fromey mentioned. Heres one of them and ill look on my other camera later and see if it did catch  any too. 

These two were toward cley hill warminster way.

The first picture above (although may be a bit too far over?) struck Deep Lane in Corsley near the Church which is about 500m from me. I had my head out of the window at the time and the noise was incredible - real shotgun thunder almost instantly. Even at that distance it is still well over 90 decibels

Another similar about a minute before struck the top of Blackdog Hill on the A36, and another struck closer to Frome.

You'll like this one.... Some kids were camping over in the Downton meadows last night. Packing up in the rain this morning, we watched them bag their rubbish up, then chuck it in the trees. I shouted

My poor attempt at taking photos of lightning with the phone! 

Just missed out in frome again , but took a short a short stroll  to a good vantage point and caught  funnel cloud

Checking stations across town, looks like we’ve had 40mm+ so far and currently belting down still as I type... doesn’t look like any let up soon either judging by the radar. Can’t remember the last 40mm+ day we’ve had, let alone the 50mm+ it’ll probably be by the end of the day.

One of the wettest summer days I remember

Still raining here, seems to be going one way and then coming back again.  Measured 9.3mm to 16.00 (from 10.00), may venture out and check again when it's the full 12 hours!

Not a drop of rain here today and none on horizon from any forecasts.

Next weeks forecast for sunny temps have had an uplift during the day, 23-28c next week. .

A time lapse of the radar suggests it is moving back towards us, so we may get some more welcomed rainfall yet..as next week is looking somewhat drier and warmer, the plants will appreciate a good soaking..

Hi chapmanslade 

that's great, really appreciate the correction of locations. 

I found a couple more on my other camera of the ones you mentioned . I'll try post those later too if I can . 

Back to the rain .  It's been relentless for us here today in frome chapmaslade Warminster westbury areas and still going strong 

 

I snapped the radars through the day from 2 

id love to know our local rainfall totals. Fromey do you measure these by any chance ?

Still no rain here, just dry and cloudy as it's been all day apart from the drizzle earlier in the afternoon

The rain just never seems to get here, just like it did earlier in the other direction.

The last 12 hours of non stop rain have produced just shy of 25mm.

I emptied 42mm out of my manual gauge at 19.00 simply because I feared it overflowing (holds 50mm) soon after.

I will check it again at 06.00 which will only be an hour or so beyond 24 hours since this rain started.

With the Tuesday evening and yesterday evening storms the last 48 hours have dumped 76mm!!!!

Up to 41.2mm for the day. Afrer a brief lull it is coming back again, not as heavy as earlier however, where my locale was under white echoes on the radar for about 2 hours!

Rain has been crazy today! We're currently at 37.4mm and it's still hammering it down! 

Have some very unhappy grumpy chickens even the slugs can't tempt them out ?

Thanks Andy ,I knew we had more than 25 mm which is what mum said she saw on tv but locally I knew as it was monsoonal like bathweatherwatcher said too .

Any moderate rain just fizzles out as it gets here. Just 2mm of drizzly rubbish today, taking the June total to a massive 23mm.

Just had a look at 5 stations across town; 58mm is the highest and 45mm the lowest readings. 3 out of the 5 are showing over 50mm... fair to say it’s been very very wet!!

Good job it’s been so dry the last couple of months otherwise these sorts of totals could cause real issues!

I don’t think it has been that much here, 15 miles south! Guess small distances make all the difference. Under 10mm on the 3 nearest PWSs around here, but not sure of accuracy.

It did seem a bit high compared to a lot of others nearby but there are some not far from it with similar numbers

If you look at the Brigmerston station, it was on 3.5mm at 6:59am, 5 minutes later it was at 69.3mm
