    We are having a spectacular thunderstorm with proper serious heavy rain. I love it :)

    We had this last night up here, although it was too cloudy to see the lightning properly. It's nice and sunny today, but not too warm :thumbs:

    It was really warm here. It may still be, I've had to shut the door because the floor was getting soaked :)

    I'm sitting in the kitchen with the door open watching this. Easing up now though.

    Considerably further North than yow, and it's been glorious sunshine all day. It is well hot though (about 22 degrees)

    How my Chinese mates used to laugh when I tried to explain that mid-twenties is hot where I come from.

    All things are relative. I start wearing shorts to work at about 13 degrees. I was out mountain biking today and seriously suffering for the heat :D

    I'm the same, get a sweat on in the high teens Celsius. Summers in Beijing I was basically crocked for three months.

    I've been mocked for living at a low altitude before. :D "Zero! He live at zero! Hahahahahahaaaaa!" :D

    It's doing it again. Raindrops the size of water balloons and the sun is shining. No thunder yet though.

    Not a bad here today and an interesting bit of sunset reflecting in the clouds

    Apart from some unpleasantness with the sun earlier this morning, it has been nicely leaden sky and drizzle.

    Drizzle here now but it's been dry with a bit of sun at times. Quite a drop in temperature though.
    I'm off up to the Solway Firth of Friday so I'm hoping for a sunny few days. Fingers, toes and eyes crossed :)

    Bloody hell, we've got this on Monday when I get back from the weekend :(

    It's raining here at the moment, although fairly gentle steady rain rather than a downpour.

    Monday in Hebden Bridge turned out to be not too bad after that horrendous forecast. Cloudy but nothing worse.
    Got a campervan trip to Dales planned in three weeks so I'm still optimistically hoping for an Indian Summer :)

    It's forecast to rain on you today Shirl - similar to Manchester.

    The weather app I've screengrabbed above says it will rain in the afternoon, so this morning should be fine.

    I'm working today so not really fussed about the weather :(
    It was dry though when I took the dogs out at 6.30am and seeing as the dogs dislike the rain as much as me, that was a good thing :D

    I'm off today and the sky is switching between very leaden and sunny - it can't make up its bloody mind. I'll be surprised if we get through the day without at least a bit of rain. :)

    I can't let these last few gorgeous days go by without a mention. Yesterday was especially lovely here in Hebden Bridge.

    Been beautiful here in Leeds.

    Was beautiful on Saturday before I left for the Deep South. Gradually got gloomier as I descended below the 52nd parallel, eventually leading to rain. Admittedly, it was nice on Sunday down there but it's been 100% spot on since getting back.

    North > South

    It's grim down South :(
