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.
