Thunderstorms and heavy rain Cornwall and Devon

  Woolwell 21:51 17 Jul 2014

We have been experiencing prolonged thunderstorms with very heavy rain over Cornwall and Devon all evening. I hope that there isn't too much damage.

I don't know if this will work Met Office obs but rainfall map is very colourful.

"send them this way please love thunderstorms"

It was quite a stormy night here on the North London/Herts border. Spectacular rain, and lots of lightning, but not so much thunder.

It's going to be very hot today, I think.

My partner tells me we had a big storm in the night, here in West Somerset but, I slept through it.

Apparently this was forecast earlier in the week, and yesterday evening, early hours today we had plenty of thunder and heavy rain spells in our area. Still the occasional thunder roll in the distance, but the rain as kept off. Still very humid though, and temperatures reaching higher levels.

I hope that this warm weather doesn't increase the crime rate, with all the open windows and doors?.

Still very humid, but slightly cooler with overcast and odd rain outbreaks with occasional thunder roll in my area, so far today. Looks like it will remain the same all day, and possibly tomorrow with rest of week in question according to latest forecast?.

Seems to have put paid to those who were thinking of sun-bathing, having bought all that sun protection cream :O)
