issued by the metoffice.

After a few days of summer, looks like Autumn returns. Yuck.

crikey its a large area

hazeyjane Tue 11-Aug-15 19:11:22

ilovechristmas1 Tue 11-Aug-15 19:15:35

oh no,do you mean you will be camping on the day in the at risk area

hazeyjane Tue 11-Aug-15 19:18:28

yes, on the south coast - hoping to decamp to nearby family if it gets too much.

sometimes it is not as bad as they predict

every weather forecast for my postcode says something different and while it has a weather warning atop each one, there's no "heavy rain" listed!! so confusing.

achieve6 we've got the weather warnings but no heavy rain forecast thing for Thursday as well. I think the rain will move up to where we are (Leicester) quite quickly but I'm wondering whether the metoffice don't want to give proper timings, so are 'covering all bases' at the moment and will refine the forecast properly tomorrow. 'Tis proper annoying though because we've got plans to go out on Thursday and don't know whether to postpone it or not.

hazeyjane looks like you might have to do that. Thursday's not great but Friday is properly awful for most of the day in the south.

Looks like my guess last night was right ~ looks like the rain has caught up with the weather warning for us!

GloriaSmud Thu 13-Aug-15 09:05:27

Cloudy already here (Leicester)
Raintoday is showing the rain moving up from the south and looks like there are some thunderstorms in there already.
'Tis not going to be very nice for the next day or two for the South/Midlands.

East Sussex coast here & it's been raining & thundering on & off since about 5am.

Seems to be very slow moving.

Hope it buggers off Northwards to you lot soon! grin

We're in Kent - nothing so far. Mild, cloudy, no rain...I wonder if it will miss our little corner.

onedogatoddlerandababy Thu 13-Aug-15 09:56:10

Cloudy and breezy where I am (west wilts) but not one raindrop...

FarFromTheMaddingCrowd Thu 13-Aug-15 10:07:40

Mild, clear and breezy in my corner of NW London so far.

achieve6 Thu 13-Aug-15 10:33:02

BBC changed our weather forecast yesterday, said heavy rain from 8am today. No sign of it. Not that I'm complaining grin

magimedi Thu 13-Aug-15 10:45:32

It is dark as night here, no exaggeration, & pouring with rain. Thunder seems to have stopped.

ewanhoozami Thu 13-Aug-15 10:48:36

but blazing sunshine next week, yes? <hopeful>

Cecyhall Thu 13-Aug-15 10:51:54

It's so dark here, i don't really want to have to shut the curtains and put the light back on at 11am!

SideOrderofChips Thu 13-Aug-15 11:18:56

Jersey lightening last night

GloriaSmud Thu 13-Aug-15 11:39:11

Nice picture, SideOrder!
Not a lot happening here. There might have been a glimpse of sun a few minutes ago but other than that, it's surprisingly blustery, overcast and humid.
I hope something happens fairly soon ~ I postponed a trip to the zoo with DDs and my parents today because it was forecast for rain/storms and now the timing for rain to arrive has been pushed back to this afternoon.

FarFromTheMaddingCrowd Thu 13-Aug-15 11:44:32

Beginning to rain now. Not too heavy at the moment.

YAsoNBU Thu 13-Aug-15 11:52:55

Streaming it down here in hants and think I just heard a rumble of thunder. Think the planned den building afternoon at local wildlife reserve is off!

SusanMichelson Thu 13-Aug-15 12:40:09

ahem, it is now bucketing down. The sky has gone very dark grey. I'm going to go and stand and look at the sea in a minute, think it will be lovely smile

SusanMichelson Thu 13-Aug-15 12:41:05

also massive thunder here.
