I elude to the constant greyness of low level cloud which seems often to predominate in the mid to late autumn with often more than our fair share of rain here. I suppose I refer to the feel of the weather pattern now firmly in place which is more typical of what to expect in the autumn

I can see what Cultman means though. We have had dull leaden skies all day here without the usual towering cumulonimbus you normally get in thundery weather. The  house lights have been on all afternoon as it is so dark and since about 3:00 it has been raining hard almost continuously. Feels just like November but there have been a few rumbles of thunder and the temp is about 19C just to remind us that we are actually still in summer

Well my goodness that was exciting couple of hours. The best storm I’ve seen for decades. Frequent lightening and some of the most torrential rain I’ve ever seen.

Will be interesting to see what the rain gauge picked up at London City Airport

Almost surrounded to the north, east & south. Almost tropical rain dumping around an inch in the past 20 mins*, but easing off to steady rain now.

Looks like we’re in for another tickle as activity is building to the east in Herts.

Amazing to hear that when we've still not had a drop. I can hear thunder though and the radar is showing heavy  rain heading our way.

I went out for a bike ride and partway round I felt a few drops of rain, checked the radar and thought I was going to get soaked. But it seems to have all stalled just a few miles to the east and we still haven’t had enough to wet the ground. The radar has even had yellow echoes right overhead and we haven’t had more than a few spots.

Certainly hasn’t felt like November here. Warm and humid and positively tropical feeling when the sun broke through.

I've seen reports from "unofficial" rain gauges that are quite biblical.

In situ formation of thunderstorms that headed south west from Suffolk into London seem to have generate huge local totals of 150mm+

It's been that kind of summer

Met Office have issued warning for thunderstorms in the far south again for today.

I'm not surprised. There is still a lot of humidity down here with dewpoints a tropical 18 to 19c with periodic brief downpours since 8am.

Its so frustrating. Apparently a lot of the EA rain gauges in East London are currently offline. I am also shocked London City doesn't have rain gauge.

Its yet another instance of how light our recording network is, SJP was nowhere near the core action.

When moving to Brixham I didn't think there would be anything exciting to report weatherwise...but todau!!!!!

We have had completely clear blue skies above all morning and still do yet.....................

Constant Thunder (no breaks) and lightening for an hour now as we have watched this supercell build over the moor and move to Paignton and Torquay and now out at sea.

Wont be reporting any snow in the winter any more so this is the best it gets from these parts I'm afraid!

I've just noticed a few bright echoes starting to show up on the latest radar map over the Pentland Hills not all the far to the south of Edinburgh with a few lightning strikes showing up as well.

It could therefore be very interesting indeed if that was to head in our direction over the next few hours.

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.

There could be quite a bit of convective activity in Scotland tomorrow and some heavy thundery rain on Wednesday/Thursday with some large rainfall totals in places by the look of the models.

I can see that from the official Met Office warnings over the next few days because here in Edinburgh, we are under a yellow warning for thunderstorms during tomorrow and then another separate yellow warning for rain (no thunder this time) on Wednesday and Thursday.

I am therefore hoping that we don't end up seeing the same non-event with that as what a lot of people down south saw over recent days.

I would be more worried about seeing what parts of London had instead.
