Just come back in to see it all go mad on the weather front in the SE. Be aware that the developing storms may produce damaging hail, flash flooding, c-g strikes (unplug those pcs if there is a storm about) and strong squally winds.
Is that today?
yup!! Basically se of a line drawn from the Wash to just west of the IOW
TORRO severe thunderstorm watch
It's just started raining. Supposed to be meeting friends in the park at 2. I love a good walk in the rain personally but I bet they get all woosy-woo and want to cancel!
classic radar image on met office for a line of possibly severe storms developing (look at rainfall view)
No umbrellas or sheltering under trees cattleprod - otherwise enjoy!!
DCs have matches and outdoors after school activities!Thanks for posting - I'll be taking kagoules (which I might not otherwise have done, as it still looks OK here).
Big storm wimbledon ish way!!
It's raining here, too. Nothing major though. Just started.
you are welcome meditrina. Wet and rumbly here, lightning all medium level stuff (down towards southern end of the line of storms).Ok, that was more 'drainpipe thunder'. Will be switching over to netbook soon me thinks.
I WANT THUNDER AND LIGHTNING DAMMIT!
We had quite a prolonged period of on/off rain before it started sounding grumpy if that helps, but we are on the edge and going to miss all the really interesting stuff.
<Blows it towards TobyL>
We've had 3 rumbles now (south coast)
What on earth is "drainpipe thunder"?
Couldn't tell if it was thunder or wheelies bins being moved around - so many rumbles!
It's stopped raining again now (E. Kent).
<hmm> sky gone a bit 'greeny' usually a good sign (unless you are cycling in it which I will be in a bit!)
Its that prolonged hollow sounding thunder meditrina (sorry, its not an official term, its a personal one)
Main line is currently west of you TobyL. As it moves north I think it will move east too, so you may catch some later. The main storm line is very sharply defined at the moment.
oh.that was a good strike. Just as I was about to head out.
Anyone in west London please?? reports wanted!
Yeah, I just looked at the Met Office radar wossname. We're in for it later, by the looks of it. 4pm ish.
I think I've got a bit of a crush on OYBBK I was about to check the weather and thought to myself, I bet the nice lady on mumsnet will have warned us if we are due thunder!Really humid and rumbly here in east London, but no rain yet.....It is waiting till I have to leave for swimming isn't it?
