Must admit, serious rain overnight, the stand-alone barrel is just over half-full. :), dry since 0800, but promised some more for tonight, here's hoping.

We had rain overnight and all day so far.  It got quite heavy around lunchtime, but now just soft steady rainfall.  All the birds are tweeting away out there in excitement  :)

A little rain over night then a scorching day, for working in the garden - cloud came over and the rain started at about 6. It smells lovely out there, but it is still just as hot  :ohmy:

We've had rain again today - forecast said "a sunny afternoon" but no. Bark mulch added to an elderly neighbour's garden to keep it looking good for her. Then it poured.

The smell of rain on dry ground is lovely as Mum says... noticed it the other day. Gorgeous.

A damp start this morning again.  Can't moan though after all the dry weeks previously.  The garden does really seemed to have breathed a sigh of relief and perked up   :)

Same here and a cool 12C, more rain forecast for this afternoon and evening.

Minimum temperature 4 C.
for the SE tonight, so guess I'll be out with the fleece after tea  :(

Clear now but hailstones here this PM too.
Pretty heavy downpour I caught on the M3 near Winchester but coming home I found that it was so bad it had punched holes in the plastic cover on my pop up greenhouse. Basically ripped the roof to shreds😱😱😱
I am just going to cross my fingers and hope it's enough protection till it's warm enough to put out the rest of my tomatoes and the squashes.

Cheers HH
Keep digging

As it has rained all night here I am more than happy.

I bought myself a toy - an electronic, wireless raingauge. It tells me we've now had 72.9 mm of rain (near 3" in proper money" since the heatwave broke.
FANTASTIC :)

Jolly hot here - thank goodness a little breeze has just sprung up as we've had lunch outside.

Thought we might cop for one of those nice heavy showers passing across the country...

...we did: 3-4 drops (might have been 4 - I blinked!  :nowink:)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older.

The same thing happened here, however the MetO forecast for the SE says
Quote
Between 13:00 Fri 2nd and 23:00 Fri 2nd
There is the risk of torrential downpours on Friday afternoon and evening. Whilst most places will miss the worst, it could lead to localised surface water flooding and difficult driving conditions. Frequent lightning and perhaps hail could be additional hazards.
I can but hope  ;)

Exactly the same Met Office warning for here too Mum - they're obviously keeping a close watch on their behinds!  :wacko:

Brief pause in the heavy rain at the moment - half an inch so far today, more later, and only a (breezy) 13C now.

Trying hard not to grumble about it!  ::)  ;)
