    We were woken by a big crack of thunder. Then I saw a few flashes but it’s so infrequent plus there is so much rain & low level murk that it’s hard to enjoy!

    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

    It's a pretty good storm here. Seems to be intensifying as it reaches the Bristol Channel.

    Another night of bogus spherics, though!

    Tom, lightning maps isn’t picking up every strike but the closest is shown over Boreham Road.

    Morning All, I was going say cooler , but my body lies to me, the overnight low being 18.2°C at: 07:06, and we have overcast conditions (no complaints) and some patchy light rain in the area....RH93 %, Humidex 23.6°C, with just a hint of a breeze in from the NE..

    Smooth conditions for the paddle boarders, and the beach having been scarified is for the birds...

    What an uneventful breakdown of the heat! Had some moderate-heavy rain rain yesterday afternoon and back to grey overcast dull conditions now 😴

    I don’t hold out hope for the coming days either to be honest. It’s so frustrating watching the same places get pummelled whilst the best we can do is watch some lightning that’s 40-50 miles away!!

    Active cell incoming to Bristol

    Looks like skirting through South Gloucs more than Bristol itself.

    Looking at the radar, the Bristol area is right in line for a train of showery mess trailing back up the M4 towards London.

    Warm and close night once again, even though temperatures dipped to 17.6ºC, humidity is still high.

    Had some heavy rain for a time this morning, which has done the garden good! Not been watering to preserve water supplies over the past few days, so most welcome!

    Currently 20.7°C with cloudy skies. Temperature is increasing in the past hour.

    Lighter shade of grey atm, no rain since the little that came down overnight which contributed to the 10.8mm in the gauge this morning.  Definitely feeling cooler, but with static air, it continues to feel humid.
