Not every story needs pics and vids, although the OP did say he had video but his internet is down.

Chucking it down up north here in Cumbria, we're expecting thunder this afternoon.

What gets me is hail in summer, don't think I can ever recall that during this far into this season.


You often get hail with thunder clouds anytime of the year!

Yes, big hailstorms are more common in summer - simply because they are usually associated with thunderstorms and we get our biggest thunderstorms in summer, during Spanish plume events like that of yesterday.

Gee and I thought that was good weather for you guys.
Imagine that, a Brit complaining about the rain.

We've had flash floods in early Summer for years now.

Weather patterns occur over longer periods of time than we've been measuring them, it's nothing apocalyptic, it does keep the hot weather away though, which is always a bonus.

Sorry to hear you guys are having such a tough time across the pond!

Maybe weather manipulating devices are being experimented with prior to the Olympics because they want to ensure proper weather.

Or maybe they just wanted to power wash the place so it looked nice and clean for all those foreign troops about to roll in and "relocate you"

Thanks for this, i can see now why other people in wales didn't report the storm, whereas here in the very south of wales we had it quite bad.

There has been so much of it recently that we joke about it calling it "Welsh Sunshine".

Whats the weather like outside?, "oh another day of glorious welsh sunshine".

We are seeing an awful lot of it, and, that is saying something for this part of the world, Wales holds the record for the wettest place in Britain, North wales, capel curig.

Hahaha only the middle video gets close to what i was hearing but it went on for several minutes at a time and there was very little lightning, as per for the storms we get, which don't really occur that often. Which is probably why iv not heard it like that before.

The weather in England isn't that bad. It's just that it's subject to requent change. i.e sunshine then rain. In the summer it can be excellent with clear skies and sunshine.

But hardly ever thunderstorms/hailstorms/lightning. I think England is #50 in the world with average rainfall. USA is #25.

Weather is breaking records again...




April to June this year has been the wettest second quarter in the UK since records began in 1910.

The figure was confirmed on a second day of disruption after torrential rain doused parts of the country leaving thousands without power.

Transport and schools were also affected after Wales, the Midlands, north-east England, Northern Ireland and parts of Scotland were deluged.

Even without the latest storms, this is the second wettest June since 1910.

Up to 27 June, total UK rainfall was 130.1mm - just 6mm short of the 2007 record.

It is already the wettest June on record for Wales, with 186.3mm of rain this month, compared with the previous record of 183.1mm set in 1998.


Yet again you all may say this is normal, I don't really now I'm now expert at all, but the wettest month in over 100 years has to say something, doesn't it??? Or are things bound to happen, we seem to breaking records every year!

Big hail storms aren't common in the UK, we get small pea sized at best this is new... I watched a programme on Nat Geo the other day about Noah's Flood and they hypothesized that a comet hitting the sun caused a regional melt down/ down pour... Now who remembers that big impact on the sun caught this year? Not saying it's gonna be biblical but this weather
this is even wetter and stranger than the norm for the UK and I live in the Capital Of Rain, Wales.

The weather does seem to be really odd this month im in Lancashire and about 2 hours ago i seen the darkest clouds i have ever seen to be honest but they didnt burst which was a bit dissapointing because would of made some cracking photos as the sun was going down the clouds where dark and had the odd pink streak in them was pretty errie but exciting but i hope even though i find it beautiful that no one gets hurt in the floods and bad weather, that would be awful so stay safe everyone

www.metoffice.gov.uk... this may be of interest for some people. I disagree with the people who say its normal weather for us in ithe UK I feel its not unique but its not normal, the people who realy know are the insurance companys (risk assesment for projected claims)and i read twenty five years ago their predictions for the uk which was more frequent servere storms looks like they may be right

i live in the midwest us and last year during some hardcore thunderstorms i heard some constant rumblings that i assumed was thunder, yet it was constant, lasting for minutes it seemed. it was creepy. i remember that storm was pretty bad, ripped my gutter off the front of my house, broke trees and took our power.
