Some thunder and lightning here but nothing too dramatic, east Leeds might be getting hit hard.

Well, that really was a storm and a half.  We could hear the hail and thunder above the football and I was torn between watching the lightning or the match!  We do well for storms here but this one hit us with everything and really rattled the windows.

A decent storm here, though nothing on par with that amazing storm back in May (everything will look weak compared to that though). 21mm of rain from it, almost as much as we got for all of June!

Moved away now, still rumbling and flashing to the north.

Not so big by time it arrived here. There some thunder and lightning but nothing too dramatic.

You were right though, it definitely was big and it was heading your way but I think it stalled and burnt over us.  It rumbled at a distance for over an hour but when it arrived over us the power and length of it took us by surprise.  The driving hail was so intense we temporarily lost satellite reception and it’s damaged a lot of plants in the garden.  Great storm though!

Here in the north of Edinburgh, I have just heard a rumble of thunder in the distance, and there is a line of very bright echoes showing up on the latest rain radar maps just to my SW.


The north of Edinburgh, usually always missing out on snow events which occur not just within the rest of Scotland or the UK, but also within the rest of Edinburgh.

I'm now hearing some more rumbles of thunder here.

Absolutely tonking it down in South Edinburgh. I'm back garden camping, the noise of the rain is deafening

The thunder is getting louder here in Edinburgh and according to the latest radar maps, it looks as though the south of Edinburgh is already getting some torrential rain which appears to be heading in this direction.

Just noticed overhead a Jet2 flight LS832 taking an unusual approach into Manchester Airport - obviously due to the storms.
