When will the first summer storms appear?

I know it’s early, but when do you think the first storms will arrive this year?

And, will it be widespread daytime storms, evening storms or overnight ones, and/ or a combination of both.

My prediction is for early June to be thundery, but see August as a stormy month, with one evening and overnight storm. Not localised either, like the last few summers.

May. Almost always brings the first summer storms here... either via plume or homegrown. The earliest example of course being 01st May 2005.

I'm thinking May, as this is the case in many years.  We got a (for the time of year) very good plume type even on 21st April 2018.  

Would love to see a very late season beast from the east meet a very early spanish plume!  Synoptically that could happen.

We used to get them in mid to late August. 
 

My favourite thundery plume events were August 1987, August 86, and June 1994.

1992 seems to be a forgotten summer for thunderstorms, but I remember one happening during the night in late May, and a daytime evening one in mid July, which made it turn dark, and another one in August.

  • Chilly with an increasing risk of frost

    Once Monday's band of rain fades, the next few days will be drier. However, it will feel cool, even cold, in the breeze or under gloomy skies, with an increasing risk of frost. Read the full update here

    Dubai Floods: Another Warning Sign for Desert Regions?

    The flooding in the Middle East desert city of Dubai earlier in the week followed record-breaking rainfall. It doesn't rain very often here like other desert areas, but like the deadly floods in Libya last year showed, these rain events are likely becoming more extreme due to global warming.

    Week Ahead: Cool but largely dry until later in the week, when low pressure returns

    We keep a chilly northerly flow going through much of the coming week, especially noticeable in the east. Cloud and rain spreading south Monday, but after that, most places largely dry until later in the week, when it looks to turn more showery. Read the full update here
