issued by the metoffice.
Heavy rain/thunderstorms coming up from France, moving in from the east. Bit of uncertainty how far west/north it might move so warnings could change.

I'm in Cambridge - it's suddenly gone a bit cooler and quite still - is ion the way???? not thinking haha to all the folk festival people virtually in my back garden driving me mad with the noise

It is on its way, but just like the other bands that came from France today it's thinning as it moves north. frustrating!!!!!! I really thought that the extra heat here would pep it up some.

Btw, this storm coming at us produced 76mph gusts in one spot in France. Brought down trees, flooding etc.

We only had about 10 minutes of rain in the end - and nothing particularly special. It's really muggy here though, and getting darker by the minute, so hopefully we will have more!

nothing doing here - sun gone in and some high cloud cover - looks as if it might rain lightly but no dramatic drama sad

Big rumble of thunder, but just the one! (Sussex/Surrey border)

Lovely big sharp lightning forks, rumbley-rumbley ongoing low thunder and a bit of rain. Neil next door is still mowing and the cricketers are still on the green for some reason.

I like this kind of storm.

What about North Lincolnshire? The met office keep promising us rain and then we don't get any! My garden really needs it!! Also my waterbutt which was full at the beginning of spring. It is a 1000 litre one which we installed in April last year... It filled in just 10 days from all that rain we had shock

Oh so glad of this thread - was gonna search out OYBBK about a weather question.

I am in South England, south coast in Hampshire. Earlier today we suddenly had a huge wall of wind pass through. It lasted about 30-40 seconds and blew through and disappeared. confused

Now we have refreshing rain and the mugginess has gone. Hoping for a massive storm but doesn't look likely?

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 27-Jul-13 19:39:34

Kent and East Sussex are in line for some very nasty weather imminently. Large hail ad severe gusts.
Le Havre managed an 82mph.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 27-Jul-13 19:41:34

Any obs from that area will be very interesting. Radar is showing some very interesting features.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 27-Jul-13 19:42:13

Youarewinning it's going east of you.

I have friends camped at a dog show in Haywards Heath; over 1000 dogs there. I hope they will all be ok (they often manage to escape from tents/caravans in storms)

Heavy rain N London

mankyscotslass Sat 27-Jul-13 19:44:22

A mix of sunny spells and grey muggyness in Manchester.

I would like to report some serious hail in my brothers town in Germany though - huge golf ball sized, and they have had windows broken by it for the second time in 6 weeks!

Its pouring with rain in SE London.

Still nothing here really enjoying the muffled diddly pissing diddly of the Folk fest

JuliaScurr Sat 27-Jul-13 19:47:46

steady downpour in Madway

Queenbee245 Sat 27-Jul-13 19:52:22

Nothing here yet (Essex) although its been grey for about 45 mins now and has cooled down, did hear a rumble of thunder about half hour ago but that's it so far

Queenbee245 Sat 27-Jul-13 19:53:27

And it's just started pouring down!
