For anyone in the Stoke area, keep an eye on Tamworth and it's immediate surroundings on the radar (to our SSE).  Judging by the direction of the storms and their speed (as long as it doesn't change) anything that hits us will be coming from that direction and take about 1 1/2 hours to get here.  (Gives us a nice bit of warning to get the washing in off the line if your willing to risk it getting an 'extra spin cycle' 😛 )

This is turning out to be the best day so far, much better than the Friday cloudfest. Tiny bit of cloud in the morning but has been clear since. 27C but feels warmer with the increased humidity.

Just had my 1st thunderstorm here, surprising really as there was nothing showing on the radar at 18:30 🤗 this came from nowhere 😉

Fizzled out as quickly as it formed.🙁

I notice that Bish has been posting on the general thread about this storm.

Really great to see him posting again.

So close but not quite last night, some distant lightning visible. Anyway, to prove that I'm not always moaning, it's gorgeous this morning. Hazy blue sky with little breeze. Fingers crossed for better luck today for all. Seen more lightning this year than for many a while, but only 1 short lived direct hit, so it would be nice to put that right in the next couple of days.

Really hellish here in Leicester, constant heat sleeping on pool of sweat, I see predicted relief for London tonight, but not for us.  Even with some cloud cover yesterday it remained brutally hot. Today not a cloud in sight, no wind or even a breeze probably for a week.

However I discovered a nice trick, if I run my cold shower at a certain angle in my bathroom it creates a cool breeze back to me, when standing in proximity.

I expect when storms finally do come it will be usual, where I can see clouds in the west, Coventry and Derby get them, but Leicester nothing.

I know it's pretty tough at night but it was nice to be able to go for a walk at 10pm last night in t-shirt and shorts and not feel cold. Can count on one hand the amount of times I've been able to do that in the UK. With foreign holidays out of the question this summer I don't mind the warm nights this year.

 

As for today It's only 28C but feels very hot out there with the high humidity.

Just hit 30 °C. The sun is out, but the humidity really is a killer. Impossible to walk at more than stroll pace without ending up dripping in sweat.

The humidity has really ramped up today, feels like Houston TX on an average day there.

It’s going to be a killer in sleeping tonight, at 11pm it’s forecasted to be no lower than 24c to 25c in Solihull......London though 27c to 28c 🥴

Also just to add if we see thunderstorms this evening (if it’s not high enough already) the humidity will be through the roof 🥵

I opened door to see what would happen, its 30.4C indoors, and the air outside feels warmer, not even a breeze either, some patches of cloud but nothing else. 😞
