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.

I did say that we had some really torrential rain earlier on and as it turns out, the incredible total of 41.0 mm of rain fell from that (according to the data from SEPA) at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh in the space of just one hour which is a lot more rain than what we had during the entire months of April and June put together.

That on its own, is enough to make today our wettest day of this year so far by quite a considerable amount.

Torrential rain is falling here in Edinburgh once again, though without any thunder or lightning this time.

Reading the Edinburgh reports with interest. Lots of coverage of the Edinburgh event on BBC breakfast. I missed it!! I'm in NW Scotland for a week and we've had a dry bright and humid few days 20-22 C

A mere 3mm rainfall here since yesterday - but will some impressive thunderstorms in the afternoon. Pathetic compared to Scotland.

Some rumbles of thunder here recently with a shower - looks very ominous to the south at the moment.

I can see it on the Radar, Andy - but it is not yet building in the Witham valley as far as I can seen. I live in hope!

Hope you are keeping well up there.  I went into Lincoln yesterday and it was pretty busy - the roads were dire around 5pm rush hour.

Take it steady!

Thanks Roger, that thunderstorm kept going for quite a while, and only slowly eased away around 7pm after starting about 6pm.  Found 14mm rain in the gauge, although some of that was from earlier showers.

A first for me (and the guys in the office) earlier - from our panoramic windows, overlooking the playground, we'd seen that the clouds were looking threatening.

A call went out: "Oh, that cloud looks like a tentacle!"

Turns out - it was a funnel cloud. It only lasted 10 seconds or so, but was swiftly followed by another, a thin, ropey-looking affair. That too swirled out of existance soon after.

There were no more to come, but the clouds remained menacing until we left for home.

The cell responsible shows up well on the radar, it was to the WNW of Sittingbourne.
