    Culford (Suffolk) recorded 13 days of thunder.

    Kew recorded 12 days of thunder.

    Reminds me of June 1982 which was the most thundery month since I began keeping records in 1963, 10 days with thunder here and just over 172 mm of rain.

    Parts of Leeds, Lawnswood Cemetary was one location I think, recorded just over 300mm of rain that month.

    Yes that was the year when we got the highest ever rainfall in June until June 2006.

    I had two weeks off work the first week hot humid and Thundery and this was when I got a shock from the radiator when there was a close strike of lightning. 2nd week was supposed to be a repeat but didn't happen. Cooler and wet but no storms. Forecast went wrong overnight.
