bloodyhell, haven’t experienced one that ferocious for years! Terribly loud thunder, the type that shakes your home. Flash flooding too in some areas.

But now we’ve got sunshine and warmth again🙂

Have you had a thunderstorm?

Where are you?

DobbyTheHouseElk Mon 10-Aug-20 17:17:47

No. It’s cool and overcast here.

YgritteSnow Mon 10-Aug-20 17:17:50

No I wish! 🥵

Where are you? Maybe it's headed my way.

Where are you?
It’s just muggy here, north Wiltshire, light cloud.

No just a medium shower 🙁

We had one all morning, SW. Some of the claps of thunder made me jump. Quite localised though. Hot and sunny now.

TopBitchoftheWitches Mon 10-Aug-20 17:21:30

Still hot as fuck here. 🙄

Anglesey North Wales is really getting it! Send it south please!

We've just had one in Worcestershire. Lots of thunder and sudden downpour but now sunny again.

North west here. Had rain for about 10 minutes earlier but really want a thunderstorm 🤞🏻🤞🏻

howlathebees Mon 10-Aug-20 17:22:54

None here! I want it!

edwinbear Mon 10-Aug-20 17:23:21

I'm in London. I'd sell the DC for a proper thunderstorm right now.

Shadowboy Mon 10-Aug-20 17:23:39

@TFSRM I’m in Worcestershire and nothing here? Roughly which bit? We need some rain!

EggysMom Mon 10-Aug-20 17:24:08

I'm watching the rain radar but it looks like it's going to skip round us. Darn it.

WhereDoesThisToiletGo Mon 10-Aug-20 17:25:51

No! It's heading north into the Irish Sea... No use to anyone's garden out there

Soubriquet Mon 10-Aug-20 17:26:04


And it looks like it’s going to miss is completely

DeeDimer Mon 10-Aug-20 17:26:50

Waiting for it here in South Wales...Nasty flash flooding in Aberystwyth.

QuestionableMouse Mon 10-Aug-20 17:27:24

There's a massive one over North Wales.

golddustwomen Mon 10-Aug-20 17:31:05

@edwinbear brilliant 😂

golddustwomen Mon 10-Aug-20 17:31:47

Birmingham, no sign of a thunderstorm yet. I'm melting.
