    You may get something more significant on Monday but as you well know by now settled, dry weather is expected after that. :blush:

    How do you think we feel in Surrey? I live in a brontophobes paradise, no storms and no rain!

    Perhaps you should try one of those rain dances!!!

    yes i know, it looked like we was in for quite awet night with moderate totals but it broke up as it made landfall. Seems to be a repeating pattern now with these weather systems.

    Can only sympathise - we have had absolutely no rain here (not even from a passing thunderstorm this week). The garden (which is huge) is dying on its feet! I've given up watering - on a water meter! Trees are beginning to turn gold. Was hoping for at least an hour or two last night but it wasn't to be. As for cutting the grass - what grass??

    I know what you mean Rob - i live in Derby too and it seems the rain never actually reaches here. Last week there were plenty of places that saw thunderstorms but we got very little (2 rumbles and 3 mins of rain). People think the Midlands have done better in the last 2 years for thunderstorms and this is true but Derby seems to not be included in this.

    Candice - isn't the saying 'when one door opens another slams shut in your face'? :blush:

    We did'nt get as much rain as expected either but thankfully saw some decent rainfall last week to keep us going for a week or two.At least the grass is a little greener now but will more than likely turn brown again by next weekend.

    I've just had to tip a bucket of rain water down the drain, I need it to change the aquarium water. The 45gal water butt is full and the garden is leached out. Pity I can't sell it really.

    That rain progged for Monday overnight Tuesday, is now reducing on the 12z gfs precip chart and shifting away from the south, more towards the middle and north. Then it intensifies in the North sea, after it's shot over us. post-4119-1152465264.png

    I've seen that plenty up here.

    All the storms disintegrate as they get up here... very frustrating as PersianPaladin will tell you!

    If you want rain, my suggestion is you move to Cornwall. We never seem to get anything but rain here.

    normaly i dont want rain, cutting wet grass is no fun, cutting sparse dry grass is fun! easy money! but theres a fine balance between drought and too much.

    well after tonights possible rain (i bet we get nowt) theres nothing on the horizon for the foreseeable future....
