    Yeah right, like many of us was going to have a good old soaking over this weekend, And what was the outcome *most of us haven’t seen a single drop*....so regarding Tuesday, I’ll see it when I believe it.

    Tomorrow ain’t bad though *sunny intervals and light winds 26c* 👌

    To be honest I don’t know what your on about IRA 252 in regarding Tuesday, light rain showers if your unlucky, if you asked me.

    Looks like it's fired up again over Walsall...although the radar showed it weakening on the last frame. The next frame might show it's built up again. They've been ebbing and flowing like that all evening.

    Like others have said a direct hit here in Walsall, seen around a dozen flashes and a decent amount of thunder, and some torrential rail, saw a couple of small hail stones too. The petrichor is lovely.

    I think it might be over now but that was a fairly good thunderstorm here. Not quite as epic as some of those we had last year but certainly not a bad effort for a year that's been really lacking in thunderstorm activity until now. Hoping for more soon.

    Despite what has looked like a fairly lively radar this afternoon, been barely more than a drop of rain here today. Pretty underwhelming given what is seemingly out there. Been very overcast much of the day.

    EDIT: just had a short and sharp shower now. Good to see some rain again here!

    There were strikes to the North East south and West you couldn't make it up.

    I cant even get out to chase as I have been very poorly with Covid so it is very frustrating to say the least.

    Damp and dreary day here now, no light shows or convective activity really, just continual moderate rain and nimbostratus YUK 😞 hoping it'll brighten up in a short while and trigger some t'storms over the west mids but not entirely convinced.

    That one has just reached here. We haven't had any hail in July since 2014 and today it's hailed twice. Just small hail in the first storm but the one just passed gave some 5-7 mm stones.

    • Atlantic influences and is it going to rain?

      For much of the UK, it has been dry for a while, with occasional heavy downpours bringing month high totals in one day. The harvest is progressing but the jetstream is powering up for the Equinox. Read more here

      Calm start to the week, but Autumn Equinox ushers in gales for the north later in the week

      High pressure builds in across the south first half of this week, bringing fine & dry weather for most. But from mid-week, a strong jet stream arriving will introduce windier and more unsettled conditions in the north, with risk of gales Thursday. Read the full update here
