    Overhead thunderstorm in Newbury at 1715 with some real close CG and a microburst of rain lasting 8 minutes. The rain was being blown from east to west on strong winds that gave it a tropical, monsoon-like feel.

    Speaking to relatives near Thatcham (RG7 postcode) at 5.45pm, they had been in a deluge since 5pm and thought they had had "about 3 inches of rain and close to overhead thunder". They aren't usually ones to exaggerate, so it sounded pretty vicious!

    Storms started here at 18:45, heavy downpour and it became very windy for a time. Now as it gets dark frequent lighting (to the south) and the odd rumble of thunder every few mins. Heavy rain still.

    Edit 20:51 - Overhead lighting. Typical as i just came inside to type this report!!
