Recommended Posts

Already at 30C in Solihull. Humidity making it feel worse. We had hotter on Friday 31st July but there was a breeze and it felt like a dry heat.

Thunder rumbling around but that perishing sun has come back out - really do wish this heat would do one now, totally fed up with it.  It has gone very black to the north and the wind did pick up but has dropped again.  I’ve been struggling to keep my foster cat cool all afternoon whose nursing 3 three day old kittens.  She has felt the heat today so I’ve had to sponge her down with cold water.  So hoping that storm develops and clears the air somewhat.

I do sympathise, Snowycat! We also have a cat with kittens, but they're older now and she's able to go out and about, even so she's clearly not happy and is flopped down in the shade outside when not with the kittens, who seem oblivious to the heat and are trashing everything (they're 12 weeks old now). It's starting to cloud over here, lots of lightning strikes on the radar coming closer. Last night was horribly humid, I don't really expect to get any sleep tonight unless it cools off a bit after the storms.

Nudged up to 32.2 °C at most, which is exactly 90 °F. And sheesh, doesn't it feel it. Currently a "mere" 31.3 °C, but with 49% humidity it's pretty uncomfortable. No storms currently, though it does now feel a bit thundery and radar shows some pretty beefy stuff not far away, notably in the Wolverhampton area.

😳😳 I sympathise as well, I fostered 6 x 12 week old kittens last autumn.....boy they go mad at times don’t they, I was the climbing frame 🤣🤣  It’s started to rain really quite heavily here now and the thunder rumbles on.

The heavens have just opened up here.  Not torrential but heavy rain with thunder rumbling around.

Not known a day like this before. Intense heat and humidity with sunshine from 8 till 3, then thunderstorms for a couple of hours. Bit of respite and then from 8pm the most intense thunder and lightning with torrential rain (river running down the street) just easing off now.

Is the East Midlands in for any thundery action for the rest of the week? So far they’ve all skirted to the west.

tomorrow risk shifts more to the SE, slightly cooler drier air from the NE for northern parts

That was close. We just went a whole 5 minutes with only sporadic lightning but now the intense storm conditions have returned. The drought is over!

Been pretty disappointing storm-wise in the South Midlands, especially given all the warnings. There was a storm earlier in Stratford which produced some very intense rainfall but lightning was pretty sporadic and infrequent compared to past storms.

In Bedworth and Nuneaton, we must be the most unlucky place on earth, when it comes to weather.

Over the past 4 days we had storms miss us by 2 miles, north, south, east, and west.  We are desperate for rain, our allotment is rapidly dying 😞 (no water on site).

I have screen shotted all of the rain in the past few months, and it clearly shows some sort of phenomenon which means precipitation avoids us here, or it head straight for us, parts like the Red Sea, and then rejoins itself after it's crossed here.

The same happens with snow.  In 2009/10 where everyone around us had 12" of snow, we got 1/4" of snow, you only had to drive 10 minutes out of town to find the 12" snow, in any direction.

I used to love weather, now I'm starting to lose interest because we don't have 'weather' here in this town anymore 😞

Looks as though the fun's over for those of us in the North. It's been a fantastic few days and good luck to those in the rest of the region, who look like squeezing another couple of stormy days in.
