Similar here, Tim - near Lincoln - but lighter cloud cover than you describe. I would not be surprised if the thunderstorms pass us by completely. It's been a warm day - but not unpleasantly so.
Absolutely nothing here either. I saw a couple of hefty storms broke out in Cambs, one north of Cambridge, but nowhere near us.
It’s been a bizarre few months, going from very wet to cold and dry and now, from nowhere, a sudden hot spell. The ground has dried out very fast and the willow tree in the back garden is already showing signs of stress, with a few leaves being shed.
What are we doing to our climate?
