possible concerning day for Tues 23rd Aug, looks very wet for the NW Midlands, again due to arrive in the day, so rains whole day, and dry whole night

similar to last thurs, that time got away with a dry day, but this time, dont think I will

I live in hope!

There have been so many occasions this summer when rain has been forecast for this area only to disappear as the time approached that I'll believe it when it's actually raining.

I notice the weather advisory from the Met' Office covers areas to the south east of here for Monday into Tuesday but despite this the Peak District forecast speaks of heavy, possibly thundery, rain particularly in the east of the area.

Yes something to watch closely, with a huge amount of moisture this is a likely flood event, although could downgrade but i expect more an upgrade but what im not sure of is the timing of the event, as it could shift bk n fwd to when the event starts.

Looking at the BBC forecast today the rain looks more widespread and thundery rain was mentioned.

I see the Met' Office have now extended their advisory for heavy rain on Tuesday to include my area, albeit towards the north western edge of it.

Nevertheless it gives me cause for optimism that I might see some meaningful rainfall, another shunt westward would be good as the time approaches.

Keeping watch on this thundery development set to hit some areas from this evening and into tonight moving up from the south, there is potential for flash floods as torrential rainstorms break out, also a risk of thunderstorms, this system moving north overnight and through tuesday, there are weather watchs out from Netweather, the MetOffice and others, these would be upgraded to warning later, unless a downgrade occurs or a track change that lowers the risk, but at this stage its all stations ready, an active weather system is on it way.

Oh dear! The Met' Office have removed the weather advisory for this area and even the GFS is predicting only about 1 or 2mm later on Tuesday as the system slides away to the east .

Suddenly it's not looking good at all.

GFS normally good but I think it has this wrong, the rain completely misses me, where as bbc/meto have the worst of it over the NW midlands, weather warning for NW midlands

hope GFS is right (maybe selfishly) but rain sucks

Outbreaks of heavy rain are expected to spread into southern counties of England on Monday evening, turning locally heavy and thundery over parts of the SE half of England during early Tuesday morning. Whilst many parts will see relatively modest rainfall amounts, the public should be aware that surface water flooding and frequent lightning is possible locally.

The public are advised to take extra care, further information and advice can be found here: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/links.html

Looking at the met office radar, there's a pulsating blob of extremely bright colours over the channel islands right now. Looks like a thunderstorm, but on a huge scale. Must be a deluge down there right now.
