A hefty line of showers passing along to the north of the M4. I can see the impressive towers to my north but we have only copped a couple of rogue sprinkles here.

Nothing here today but the sight of a distant CB 50 miles away over Chelmsford in Essex on the NNW horizon at 20.45hrs suggests instability is edging SE'wards at last. 

Fingers crossed for tomorrow

9.45 am and you can tell where the Folkestone Rain Deflector is (still 0.0 mm in my back yard).  



Of course, there is still the rest of the day to come.

That of course, makes a change from the SE of England getting most of these storms all the time (that is normally the first place to get any storms which move up from the near continent at the end of a summer heatwave).

I can only therefore hope that those southerners then don't make us pay for that during the coming winter by grabbing whatever snowfalls happen to be around at that time, whilst it remains snow-free here in this part of the world.

Oooh, that would be fun.

 

And on-topic, I can see from the radar that the current heavy showers are passing in lines to the north and to the south of here.  So both the Folkestone and West Kent rain deflectors are in operation at the moment.

Defintiely convective rainfall here, the sort with the massive droplets that soak you in no time. Just before it reached here the main area of rain on the radar decreased in intensity but some small convective cells formed at its boundary. They now form a discrete line heading out over the Thames Estuary, while the main mass continues moving slowly NE'wards and decaying as it does so.

Some lively showers with the odd rumble of thunder on an off since early this morning. Looks like continuing for most of the afternoon.

I only managed 6.6 mm so far but every little helps. But you're right about the temperature drop, where my hobby room is still a toasty 27 c, I felt it when I popped out to put the rubbish in the bin.

Thought I saw a decaying funnel cloud earlier to the SE - then the story below popped up. Seems like there was a waterspout out to sea which soemone though was a light aircraft crashing.

Was hoping to catch a Perseid on a night timelapse I was doing last night but instead of clouds, lol, however, I did catch something interesting happening at around 1.22 or 3.13am. Not sure what was going on, a lot of swirling.

Interesting development yesterday evening, it went largely clear and sunny but a line of showers developed and moved in from the west, you can see it develop over the bungalow.

Showers in the south yesterday were definitely local - max rainfall in the SE was 7mm at Wiggonholt near Pulborough but not that far away Crowborough was reporting flash flooding
