Severe thunderstorms broke out in a line from Sussex to the Wirral on the 22nd of July 1925. At Woolwich at about 6.30pm, hailstones the size of a man's fist were reported and weighed over 8oz (226g+). Unsurprisingly, there was extensive damage.

Woolwich: 1.71"

Nutfield Priory, Surrey: 2.55"

Twickenham: 1.95"

Solihull: 2.17"

Funnel clouds were observed at Shoeburyness and over Cambrigeshire. 53mph squall was recorded at Shoeburyness and a 45mph gust at Cambridge.

Here's some more figures that the experts can chew over.

South Farnborough 1pm

Surface wind direction: 130 degrees (8mph)
1,000ft: 110 degrees (11mph)
4,000ft: 105 degrees (30mph)
6,000ft: 155 degrees (39mph)
10,000ft: 155 degrees (50mph)
