there is a humdinger of a thunder storm just a few miles away. we are on the edge of the cloud system.

Who is underneath the storm?

GloriaSmud Tue 13-Sep-16 17:30:22

Lots of lightning strikes going on at the moment over the W.Midlands and it's not far from where I am (Leicester)
Perhaps it'll come more this way <hopeful>

Tiggeryoubastard Tue 13-Sep-16 17:31:33

Hope it come here (west Yorks).

JennyOnAPlate Tue 13-Sep-16 17:33:31

It's jut left Birmingham. It was epic! House alarms going off everywhere still.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 13-Sep-16 17:34:47

Very hazy in East Midlands and soooooooo humid!

bloomburger Tue 13-Sep-16 17:34:48

Where are you?

I'd love a thunderstorm, might make my headache disappear!

CwtchMeQuick Tue 13-Sep-16 17:36:32

Shropshire here, the worst has just passed but it's been awful. My friends say it's just hit Birmingham city centre

MayhemandMadness01 Tue 13-Sep-16 17:37:59

Is it going north or south? Am in Liverpool.

sonlypuppyfat Tue 13-Sep-16 17:39:16

I'm in the West Midlands and it has gone very dark

123rd Tue 13-Sep-16 17:40:07

Oh, is it coming towards the east coast??? Please say yes

CwtchMeQuick Tue 13-Sep-16 17:41:11

Seems to be going east mayhem we've had 4 hours of torrential rain hmm still thundering now but it's not so dark

AnchorDownDeepBreath Tue 13-Sep-16 17:41:58

It's just passed through the West Mids, I think - I'm in the middle-ish, and we've had lots of heavy rain and it went very dark. No thunder or lightening, though, and it seems to be brightening up again quite quickly.

AnchorDownDeepBreath Tue 13-Sep-16 17:42:35

Wow Cwtch, really?! We had about 15 minutes. Seems we got off lightly!

Hidingtonothing Tue 13-Sep-16 17:45:43

I'm West Midlands too, don't think I've ever seen it go so black before a storm! Lightening was awesome though and the thunder woke my DH who had dozed off on the sofa when he got in from work, that's no mean feat as he sleeps like a dead man shock

NonStopNeuroticCabaret Tue 13-Sep-16 17:47:20

Very dark in East Cheshire right now.

CwtchMeQuick Tue 13-Sep-16 17:48:09

Yep Anchor, it started about 1pm and has only just stopped. It slowed to a drizzle for about 20 mins around 3pm but other than that it has been absolutely bucketing down and the thunder and lightening didn't stop the whole time. DS was most put out because Sky stopped working grin

Gone very dark here in the NW. Been raining since 3.00.
Heatwave expected tomorrow.
The weather is officially bonkers this week!

TiggeryBear Tue 13-Sep-16 17:50:38

We had that earlier, a wonderful thunderstorm in Dorset & seemed to be heading across to Somerset whilst we drove the other way. Was followed by brilliant sunshine & if possible even more sticky/humid/muggy air :-(

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 13-Sep-16 17:52:35

A storm would be lovely!

exLtEveDallas Tue 13-Sep-16 17:54:13

It left us here in Worcs about 30 mins ago and it's bloody freezing now - when the storm was here it was really warm and muggy.

bearleftmonkeyright Tue 13-Sep-16 17:54:50

Just outside Stoke on Trent, it's black over Bills mothers.

P1nkP0ppy Tue 13-Sep-16 17:57:50

We had the whole shebang in north Wiltshire at lunchtime, no sign of the so-called record temperatures here. It's barely hit 22°, very muggy.

LearningHowToFly Tue 13-Sep-16 17:57:54

We're near Stafford and it's right over head, all very dramatic. Lightning flash after flash!

GloriaSmud Tue 13-Sep-16 18:11:06

Still nothing here (Leicester) but a nice breeze has got up. Think all the storms are going to stay stuck over W. Midlands way sad

bearleftmonkeyright Tue 13-Sep-16 18:34:45

We had half an hour of it and it's stopped now. It's so hot here.
