    All over by 02:00 here. Not that I got up to look, but the noise stopped.

    Keep those red shoes to hand just in case!

    Keep safe everyone - hope there’s not too much damage.

    Wind is getting up here in the far southwest.

    My wind guage is broken but I reckon it is currently F7, half gale, maybe 30kts. Just south of west. Luckily we have a hill with a 50m rise 400m in that direction, which takes some of the sting out of it.

    Expecting F8, gale later. Should be gone by morning though.

    It is getting a bit draughty here in the east midlands.
    It has pushed many of three squash leaves over allowing the sun in to ripen the fruits.
    It has come at the right time.

    Met Office amber and yellow wind warnings for parts of the south west over night and into tomorrow from storm Evert. Even outside the warning area it will be a lot more windy than most of us have been used to, so make sure garden furniture, trampolines etc are anchored and plants are well tied in.

    The met office have released various warnings (yellow and amber) for thunderstorms and heavy rain. These tend to be rather short notice as the situation develops, so it is a good idea to keep an eye on the met office at the moment.

    Current amber warnings are for Scotland from today to Thursday, but there is a yellow thunderstorm warning for today and tomorrow covering much of the country from the midlands northwards.

    Could do with a drop of rain and I almost never say that from the north-west. I'm just about through the 1,100 litres of rainwater collected earlier in the year.
    Yes, virga, or fallstreaks, are the grey streaks that you sometimes see under clouds but not falling as far as the ground.

    More useless information - that smell you get when rain falls on dry ground is called petrichor.

    ^^^^ interesting!…you learn something every day on here

    We didn’t notice any virga ( first time I’ve used that word) but instead a massive thunderstorm with hailstones….fantastically exciting!

    And yup , it’s heading North

    We got a few of those massive drops of rain this afternoon. Sploshes the size of a 50p coin!

    I got all excited for a moment…who would have thought I’d be excited at the prospect of more rain a few weeks ago!

    Thanks Pen, that's interesting about rain evaporating on the way down. I had no idea it could happen .. the things you learn on a gardening forum

    I did get a report of heavy rain several miles away but just not locally.

    All change over the weekend as thunderstorms and more general rain move up from the south introducing cooler weather. The remainder of July looks much more unsettled with temperatures sliding to possibly a little below average by the start of August. I think we will look back on this hot spell as being "summer" for 2021 as there is little sign at the moment of anything dry and warm coming up. Things can change quite quickly though, so as always nothing is certain, particularly beyond 5 days.
