Dry today in Farnborough, but there was 0.4mm overnight last night (and counted to yesterday).
Rainfall here 1-15 July is only 4.6mm, 10% of the estimated LTA. We seemed to have missed most of the storms - thunder was heard on the 8th, but little rainfall.
Things might be very different later this week, though, with the forecast of a thundery low moving north.

No rain. Fine day with cumulus.

At the moment, a few drops of rain have fallen. Sky overcast and leaden. Interesting movement on the barograph chart: at about 05.30BST the pressure suddenly dropped from 1020Mb to 1017Mb in the space of less than an hour, jumped back up about 1Mb and is now continuing to fall. Should be interesting later!

Regards to all.

Thunderstorm here last night, around 0330-0500, lightning close and thunder loud. 10.2mm fell - just what the garden wanted.
Now sunny, and forecast to be the hottest day of the year so far (yesterday I recorded max of 28.3C). Last night's min was 17.4C
