A mini-heatwave ended dramatically with severe thunderstorms and a lot of flash flooding. Up to six inches of rain fell in a few hours in parts of Wales. :)

There was absolutely nothing in Tyneside, but according to the Hazelrigg data, thunder occurred at Lancaster University on both the 9th and 10th.

As you can see, an upper trough was situated just to the south west of the British Isles, with a surface low to the north west, and an occlusion over Ireland and the south west..

don't remember anything of that year and it was my second trip to uk in June.

I recall the year before in Paris on the 31st of may1992 a violent thunderstorm and a record breaking 192mm of rain in 24 hours in central Paris.I would always remember it as we were just moving furnitures from my grandmon who died a few months earlier and it was like a tropical rain never stopping.

My cousin and i were using the rain to cool us down from moving stuff but it was warm rain. It brought many floodings.don't know if anything in Uk during that day?

One of my earliest weather memories was the severe storm that hit Llandudno on the 10th June 1993, I was only 8 at the time. 5 1/2 inches of rain fell in just 3 hours. I was with family visiting my grandparents for the whit holiday. We were on Deganwy beach when the storm hit and had to cross the footbridge over the railway line in-between lightning strikes, very scary! We got back to the car and struggled to drive back to my grandparents house as the floods hit. I have a very vivid memory of a little girl standing outside her house crying as a torrent of water poured out the front door. We made it back OK and luckily their house was unaffected being on a hill. I remember it being pitch black on the drive home although it couldn't have been any later than early evening. 

 

The next day we walked around the town to see the damage, steep roads had the tarmac pulled up into big ripples, the hardcore under the railway line had been washed out and there was a water mark on a row of terraces at around the 5ft mark. I was down this way a few months ago and really couldn't work out how the water could get so high here with a clear run to the sea.

 

One of the major problems with this flood was the Marine Drive which runs around the base of the Great Orme. The road acted like a gutter, funnelling the water gushing off the Orme into the town. Unfortunately my mum didn't have a camera with her at the time but my brother and I made a scrap book of newspaper clippings, great to look back on.
