It has now become very dark here in Edinburgh with some thunder and lightning around.

The rain has only just reached us here in the north of Edinburgh but the east coast haar has also closed in quite a lot ahead of that.


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.

Really torrential rain is now falling here in the north of Edinburgh with some very dark skies and fairly frequent thunder and lightning still around.

Now, we just need one more such storm to equal the number of thunderstorms which we had here during last winter, and it now looks as though we are finally starting to make up up for the very dry start to this summer which we had here.

In addition to the rain, we now have some hailstones mixed in with that as well.

Yet again Edinburgh gets the interesting weather whereas we get the rotten end of the stick that's been dipped in every piece of dog muck within the vicinity 

Nothing remotely convective or thundery just soul destroying, mind-numbing featureless murk off the North Sea the entire weekend

Just had a direct hit here from an impressive thunderstorm.  Began with a dramatic approach of fast moving low-level dark cloud, a turquoise-green colour to the distant clouds, and then followed a deluge accompanied by frequent overhead lightning, multiple flashes of lightning and loud thunder.  So much rain in a short space of time that my back yard was completely flooded in a matter of minutes.  The first proper thunderstorm here for 2 years!   

Rain & thunder now easing, but that really was quite a strong storm.

Just checked the gauge, and 15mm of rain fell in that storm, most of that probably fell in 10 mins or so.
