Paul: Is that GMT?

My wife was in Hanley, not far from you, and reported very heavy rain about 1200-1230GMT, but heard no thunder.

Here in east Shropshire we had 15.7mm rain from the main rain band between 0630 and 0820 GMT. A further 4.1mm fell until 1030GMT. Then almost none for the rest of the day -- but the radar shows a possible further band of rain approaching. (It's important: I need only another 4mm to exceed 100mm for the month, which will then be the first time on record that all 3 summer months were over 100mm!)
Edgmond, Nr Newport Shropshire. N Shropshire Plain, rain shadow of the Welsh hills, sheltered from all snow directions, exposed to Cheshire Gap showers, otherwise similar to rest of inland England.
