Heavy thunderstorms in the afternoon in Guildford. 12 mm or so and parts of the town were flooded.

A very hot day. Max. temp. 33 deg. C. Development of afternoon thunderstorms which were few and far between and scattered. Thunder at Guildford and this development moved west to give a severe storm and 75 mm+ rain over Cardiff.

There was a major development to the south of the town in the afternoon where hail fell. A tornado was reported near Guildford but little is known about this development.
