Weather warning here.
Think though that just about anywhere in the UK could get thundery showers today.

Updated warning.
We're having a thundery shower at the moment ~ they weren't due 'til this afternoon and seem to have arrived early!

central london - huge flash of lightning and crack of thunder 5 minutes ago, the sky is black it it raining buckets - just in time for the weekend!!

maud That's about 30 miles from me. Too close! grin I don't want to get wet on school run any more times! (Would help if i had a rain coat instead of just a jumper!)

maudpringle Fri 10-Jun-11 12:08:11

Stopped now! I too thought that the heavy showers weren't due til this afternoon - that's why I pegged out 2 lines of washing grrrrrr

I love storms! In fact, call me a freak, but I am enjoying the rain atm. It feels like a novelty grin

AlmaMartyr Fri 10-Jun-11 12:22:20

I love proper storms but we never get decent ones here (just north of Dartmoor). Lots of rain, wind, hail but never thunder and lightning angry. Think we might have to postpone this weekend's camping trip though.

I'm getting married in devon next weds. It's going to cock it down, isn't it? sad

maudpringle Fri 10-Jun-11 12:28:53

Taunton is a nightmare for storms hanging around for hours, they seem to just go round and round the hills. It's like they can't find a way out.
Might be a good idea to camp another weekend though smile

OhYouBadBadKitten Fri 10-Jun-11 12:34:54

Well done Gloria smile

MarioandLuigi Fri 10-Jun-11 12:37:49

We are in the midlands - DS is going on cub camp tonight so please let the rain stay away.

chrisonabike - it pissed with rain all day when I go married, but we still had a fab day smile

cheesesarnie Fri 10-Jun-11 12:39:22

SeaShellsHasSandInHerShoes Fri 10-Jun-11 13:06:59

Is this why we've just had a hail storm?! Dorset...

Tortoise Fri 10-Jun-11 13:47:01

Rain just starting here. Light at the moment......

PestoSurfMonster Fri 10-Jun-11 13:53:52

Should i get my washing in? Bristol

Tortoise Fri 10-Jun-11 14:26:33

Rain didn't come to much but sky is quite dark. It's waiting until school time isn't it!

RantyMcRantpants Fri 10-Jun-11 15:51:42

Just hit North Wilts. Had 2 loud claps of thunder and 5 minutes of hail and now we have rain.

SuePurblybilt Fri 10-Jun-11 15:54:29

Yes to washing in I would say! Pisshing it down in Mid/North Devon and freezing with it. A small bit of thunder to go with.

dragonmother Fri 10-Jun-11 16:01:27

Wow epic rain here - London

solareclipse Fri 10-Jun-11 16:04:03

Please say it's going to chuck it down in southwest London tomorrow, so we don't have to go to blardy sports day.

SuePurblybilt Fri 10-Jun-11 16:05:08

And now clear skies and bright sun grin

North Hampshire is looking grey.

My washing machine has broken so nothing on the line at the moment.
