This time last year most of the country was either basking in boiling sunshine or being drenched by severe thunderstorms. The 19th of June 2005 was the hottest day of the month at my location with a high of 32.9C. I think there were higher spots around the east and in the London areas. Someone reported a recording of 35.4C in Croydon!

However, the heat broke down in some spectacular storms up in the Midlands and Yorkshire area. I remember watching racing on the TV up in Cheshire and it was bucketing it down. Also, the Helmsley Flood! What an event that was.

The warm weather stayed through with 30.4C being reached again on the 23rd followed by thunderstorms on the 24th. Yet more scorching sun meant a banging end to the hot period on the evening of the 28th with 16.7mm falling in 30 minutes from one hell of a downpour.

Share your storm stories of June 2005 and high maxima below.

Thanks.

The second half of June 2005 was actually the warmest since 1976.

Yeh there was a multicell event crossing the country almost every week, it would allways start with storms moving up from biscay over the west then moving Ne across here, it would always wake me up about 5 which a couple of rumbles then just dynamic rainfall the rest of the day clearing to fresher sunnier weather.

This pattern kept reapeating itself, we had very little home grown stuff unlike this year.
