Nothing down our way, Andy. Did look a bit grey NW - towards Lincoln.

I'm a bit disappointed.

No county (Lincolnshire) has better churches and worse houses. The poorer sort of people wash their clothes with hog's dung, and burn dried cow's dung for want of better fuel; whence comes the Lincolnshire proverb: "Where the hogs shite soap and the cows shite fire".

Looks like the next batch of thundery downpours may be heading further southwards towards you Roger.  We're currently getting some more heavy rain, although not as bad as earlier this afternoon.    Some strikes showing up again around Doncaster and Rotherham.

Looks like the Doncaster area has been particularly badly hit this afternoon.  Wouldn't be surprised to hear of flooding around there.

Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.
