It’s mid July, and this summer seems to be disappointing so far for storms, especially in the London and South East region.

I struggle to remember when I last experienced a proper summer thunderstorm!

In a few days time it will have been a year since I last saw a storm here. No sign of that changing anytime soon.

Lack of warmth and Spanish plumes.

June was the most thundery month here for years, also got one in May, but July... oh dear. No storms, no real convective weather, little sun or warmth, just cloud and persistent drizzly rain.

June was a thundery month for quite a few areas, but we have been lacking a widespread storm system for a couple of years now.

The last decent ones I can remember were late May 2018, mid July 2017, and a few storms in the summer of 2016, mainly June and September.

June 2016 and July 2017 were quite widespread across southern parts, but not sure you got those ones. Anyhow, that all seems like a long time ago.

No, probably not.  Thinking about it, the last memorable thunderstorms possibly for me are from June 2014.

No thunderstorms, no heatwaves, no decent rainfall.

Nothing remotely interesting about this month at all, and the rest of it doesn't really look much better.
