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

Highest max since 10th Aug 2003 here, was 33.6*C that day, 33.4*C today.

Still nearly 24*C as I type this, with no wind. The stillness makes it feel all the more strange out there. RH creeping up toward the 60s %.

Lightning is constant to my north east between Gloucester and Worcester which explains why it is quite feint, I tried to capture it on my phone but its too feint for it to pick up the flashes. 

 

Our village facebook page is also full of people talking about it alog with the Perseid shower which is at its peak tonight.

30.5C the maximum for here today so a little up on Saturday's maximum. Surprisingly pleasant out there tonight too, not that oppressive. Perhaps some fireworks for our region tomorrow.

I don't think I can remember such a hot period of weather that didn't produce some storms here. Looking at the charts, there's practically no surface based CAPE or Lift in the forecast, only MLCAPE, and that's nothing to shout about. This whole period of thunder risk is classed as 'Isolated' 

I find it highly unusual. Zero rainfall as well! 😬

Yeah, it really is surprising! With at least 2 days of excess heat, we tend to get at least an import, but nothing at the moment! As a kid, the 90s were my favourite time for storms. every summer there were at least a few nights with long lasting storms!

Tomorrow evening onwards look more promising for the south, though

Absolute carnage unfolding in parts of Scotland right now with storms, torrential rain & severe flooding going all night long & still continuing as we speak, I wonder what mother nature will have in store for our region from later on today!

Is today our chance of some storms, watched from a distance for two nights in a row now some lovely storms, especially last night, where I could watch 3 storms firing away.

Beeb suggest it will be a South West affair so fingers crossed.

Morning All, some early posts today, a sign of the expectations? So an overnight low of 18.4°C at: 06:05, has beat a hasty retreat as the temperatures start their daily climb, currently 20.0°C with RH84 %, Humidex 25.4°C.. Looking around the area, first off the sea temperature is now 19.1 °C, the beach this morning has an interesting array or folks. We have a rubbish picker, a guy with a metal detector, a family with the kids already in the sea, and what looks like some beach overnight sleepers..

A wider view on the satellite this morning, shows the storms to Eastern Scotland, but more importantly for us, look south things beginning to form over northern & southern France/eastern Biscay

Batteries on charge in the GoPro, maybe just maybe might just get used in this heat event...finally..

Metoffice weather forecast for Southwest Today:
A few thunderstorms are possible during the morning, though conditions will be mostly hot and sunny once more. During the afternoon more widespread storms are likely to develop, especially towards Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. Maximum temperature 32 °C.

Tonight:
Thunderstorms rather widespread through the evening, then more focussed across north Devon into Somerset and Wiltshire overnight. Becoming drier with clear spells elsewhere, and turning mostly dry everywhere by dawn. Minimum temperature 18 °C.

Calm air and several degrees warmer to start with than yesterday. Feels like a fine summer’s afternoon already. Makes me wonder how high today could go, if it stayed clear until at least 4 pm.

Had quite a lot of Ac Cas yesterday, with some lovely stuff at Sunset, and a mild level shower over Lyme Bay (third pic)

Then a brief shower came overhead about 22:40 with a flash and rumble, but it was a one flash wonder (I was looking at the laptop screen of course).

Just before that, when in the garden I thought I saw a few faint flickers to the north.. so went into the field behind and yep, faint 'atmospheric flickering' to the north every few seconds.. So I then measured the distance to the midlands storms.. about 120 miles 😲 
I have seen lightning from far away storms but that's the furthest I've been able to detect it from (couldn't see the clouds, it was just presumably reflecting off any dust/haze etc in the atmosphere).

A low of 16.3C last night, warm for this valley with a clear night.

A record warm morning, already 25.8C, and a record early arrival of the sea breeze has recently occurred!

I still think we are a bit to far south again today with the best chances more towards Gloucester, Worcester area moving into Wales but chasing seems to be a good option today!
