    At the Center of the small Low at the moment 14c/57f as it trundles eastwards . Lots of rain so far nearing an inch and more to come as the bands around the low spin towards us, looks quite pretty on the Radar not so pretty at ground level😅

    Crawled up to 16.3 °C during a brief sunny spell around tea-time, but otherwise this was a day to forget. Damp and cold, so much so that I had to put a jacket on when going out in mid-afternoon. In July.

    Definitely felt more like October. Better start to today and with the sun trying to peek through feels much warmer.

    Very heavy base clouds here in Northants, with light drizzle, if the sun manages to break through could go nuclear...or just heavy drizzle.

    Just had a pulse of quite heavy rain (3 mins) pass through here.

    Clearly is building.

    All the heavy showers seem to be from about Buxton northward now. Here it's dry and breezy with sunny intervals after a few short moderate-heavy showers this morning.

    Best (or least bad) day in a while here. Just crept into the 20s (max 20.4 °C) and apart from a very heavy shower in early evening it was dry all day with occasional sunshine. Tomorrow looks like an actual decent summer's day, too. Shame it falls apart again later in the week!

    A heavy shower here at the moment, which I certainly wasn't expecting. Just looked at the Net Weather radar and it's only over my location and a few miles to the east and west.

    14C, cold wind, dull and now it's started to rain. There's just no end to it. I'm guessing it will be summer again in 10 days, as usual.

    Last few days have been generally cloudy, grey and windy  N or W Bft 3 in Hereford. Today top temp so far of 17.9 Celcius. Yesterday wasn,t much better. One day of 24 Celcius this August and thats been the highest temp so far. Gernerally feeling like Autumn.

    As a kid Augusts used to be warm and sunny. Last 15-20 years it just feels like Augusts have become a Autumn month not a Summer month. Don't even feel like getting out on my bike its that depressing. Hoping we get a bit more heat before we call summer over with.

    64.2 hrs here so far in August which is 76% of what would normally be expected in the first 20 days of the month. If the current daily average sunshine were maintained for the rest of the month it would still make August 2021 sunnier ( though admittedly not by much ) than the Augusts of 2006, 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2015 all of which recorded totals between 81.6 hrs ( 2008 ) and 95.8 hrs  ( 2011 and 2015 )

    With regard to June and July the total of 296.0 hrs was exactly on the 30 year average.

    Probably from around here.

    Had rumbles from SW B'ham from about 23:00 onwards, and slowly reached us at about 11:40. (whilst watching Match of the Day)

    Five vivid flashes (seen through closed curtains) followed by thunder within 5 secs, with one immediate loud crash.

    I recorded 6,5mms in the 15 minutes of rain, with a bit of minor road flooding due to the drains being blocked by the early fall leaves.

    First overhead storm since May.

    Not talking about models, I'm talking about the afternoon I've just experienced. Still clear skies now

    Agreed, I was out and about in my local park at 3pm, it was lovely and sunny and this forthcoming week is showing itself to be very much the same and not just for our region but for most of the UK..... unless you live in Stafford apparently đŸ€Ș

    The highest August pressure on record here could be under threat in the next few days.  It currently stands at a very modest 1031 hPa on the 26th in 1978 and on the 26th in 1981. I recorded 1032.0 hPa on the 19th in 1976 but that was at a different site.

    The reading this morning at 0800 g.m.t was 1028.9 hPa and a steady rise is forecast over the next 24 hours or so.

    If we break high pressure records and still get hardly any sunshine it's the final straw for modern Augusts! What will we have to do to get a sunny one....

    • 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
