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

Its a cold raw summers day, currently just 12C in some drizzle after a 'high' of about 14C a couple of hours ago. Utterly miserable!

Sunshine totals now starting to suffer, only just over 60hrs month to date, normally just below average but considering we had 30hrs in the first two days its been gloomy for most of the past week.

I know I commented about rain this morning. It wasn’t a moan at the conditions, moreso to highlight poor modelling/forecasting at short range.

We squeezed half a mm this morning and it looks like tonight’s predicted heavy rain (if it materialises) will miss this part of the region. 
 

So then we’re looking to Friday for a heavier burst of rain, maybe. Wouldn’t mind betting we catch a downpour tomorrow instead.

June sitting at 6.5mm as I type, 11mm in 40 days since the wet last few days of April,

Yes Andy. Even I’m wondering how much rain we will get here in N Somerset. Looks like the snow, I mean rain, might pivot out west and fall south.

Friday might be more giving if the rain moves north enough. If not it’ll be heavy downpours moving east to west!

Well, the MetOffice forecast I looked at around lunchtime had the heavy rain symbol from 8pm until tomorrow morning, not looking like that now. The charts show very little rainfall here, that's why I have just given the garden a good soaking.

Cloudy today. Did get a brief flickering of sunshine around 6:30pm, temp reached 15.1°C.

Only a very light sprinkling here this evening.....so far.  MetO showing heavy rain here now and for the next few hours.  We shall see about that.

I highlighted a risk yesterday, of some thundery showers for our region tomorrow.

Now here's a rare sight on the MetOffice app:

I could count on one hand the number of times I have seen that icon in the last few years. ?

And if I had a £ for every time it never occurred... it’s gotta be right some time!

You'd be rich if you had one for every time it appeared on the BBC website :oldlaugh:

Morning All, an overcast start to the day after a light overnight shower, with a low of 11.2°C at: 04:56, currently 13.6°C and RH82%, with the pressure @ 1009mb. Bigger opportunity of showers today...hmmm maybe...

Strange morning with significant Stratocumulus blowing off Salisbury Plain from the SE from dawn and ongoing now.

However an area of sharp showers moved over around an hour ago around which the low cloud cleared and we had 15 minutes of bright sunshine before it’s gone overcast again!

We walked back in a bit of Sunshine earlier which was nice. Breezy, cool and cloudy now.

Clear skies breaking out over France and Belgium will hopefully spark things off for some of us later.

Yep, looks like the line around London will go to our North and anything that pops up near the Solent will end up way to our South/South West.

I just want some rain for the garden... so tomorrow it is then.

Well if we ain't getting rain today, I'd like it to stay bright (as it is brightening up now) for a while! It's felt rather dank this morning. Mind you, still in shorts but felt the need to put my light jacket on when out for my walk as there was no sun to negate the bit of a breeze

Forget about what you see on the radar now, it's what will 'pop up' out of nowhere as the day progresses.

Currently 17°C here, mostly cloudy with the occasional sunny glimpse. The wind actually feels warm today, almost like the inflow of a thunderstorm.
