from the metoffice.
Certainly hot and humid here in Leicester (thinks it's about 27C atm), so might get a few storms later on.

Hot and humid here too. (Manchester)

25C and 63% humidity.

It was sunny first thing, but cloudy and grey now.

Last night was unbearably hot ~ think it was 1.30am before I got to sleep <adjusts matchsticks that are holding eyes open!>

My terrocotta garden thermometer says it's hit 30C. I'm wondering whether to evict DDs from their paddling pool and go in myself!

mankyscotslass Wed 03-Aug-11 13:24:25

I hate it being warm at night!

I'm trying to get all my washing done before the rain kicks in tonight/tomorrow!

It's been hot this morning but it's just started bucketing down! I'm in Yorkshire.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 03-Aug-11 13:35:22

certainly potential for thunderstorms today.

We went to the park yestyerday, on the way home we got caught in a downpour....kids wet, bikes soaked, us soaked.

We were all yelling with laughter by the time we got home, drenched.

Much to the amusement of the neighbours!

Scorching hot here in Suffolk, haven't got a thermometer to hand but I suspect it is about 28C.
It's clear blue sky at the moment but I'm sure we'll have a downpour before the end of the day.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 03-Aug-11 14:37:42

Probably a pretty good guess Cavemum!
28C here. It has that 'brassy' feel to the weather.

CaveMum Wed 03-Aug-11 17:31:09

The cloud is building and there are done thunderous looking clouds in the distance!

GloriaSmud Wed 03-Aug-11 17:38:50

Has just hammered it down here and had a rumble of thunder! It came on really suddenly; the wind was so strong that several of our windows closed by themselves (no window catches to keep them open) with the force of it!

LawrieMarlow Wed 03-Aug-11 17:40:54

I'm in York and there was a massive cloudburst earlier on complete with thunder, lightening and hail. Temp was about 26 now down to 19. Sunny again now though .

colditz Wed 03-Aug-11 17:42:31

it's been storming up a goodun (Leicestershire)

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 03-Aug-11 18:06:12

those storms sound pretty cool smile glorious and 26C. The coming rain is going to be a bit of a shock!

mankyscotslass Wed 03-Aug-11 18:11:53

Still humid here! Sunny at times, cloudy at others.

Horribly humid. I've just been out to check on the washing on the line, and I am sweating buckets. Yuck!

LawrieMarlow Wed 03-Aug-11 18:45:18

I think the thunderstorm (or the lightning part) has made my burglar alarm go wild. Am not happy with the piercing sound sad

mankyscotslass Wed 03-Aug-11 19:01:50

Storm clouds building to the East, but still bright(ish) overhead and to the west.

CaveMum Wed 03-Aug-11 19:08:39

It's finally starting to break - thunder is rumbling in the distance.

talkingnonsense Wed 03-Aug-11 19:36:11

It's been 30* here in Kent and no sign of rain- but there is now a bit of a breeze, thank goodness.

mankyscotslass Wed 03-Aug-11 20:51:50

Clear skies here now, no storm, norain. sad

mankyscotslass Thu 04-Aug-11 08:40:50

woke at 5 - still no rain.

Got up at 8.30 blush, there is a fine steady drizzle that has soaked everything.

No storm. sad

KatyMac Thu 04-Aug-11 08:45:14

No storm in East Norfolk but a downpouring of torrential rain about 7:15pm

& an electric cut about 90 minutes later

GloriaSmud Thu 04-Aug-11 09:04:26

We've got drizzly rain too. Looks like it's going to be a very wet day.

WyrdMother Thu 04-Aug-11 09:08:31

In South Norfolk drizzle now but glorious ride of the Valkries thunderstorm last night. Bliss.

Looks like it's an indoor day though.

WyrdMother Thu 04-Aug-11 09:09:40

Valkyries even grin
