Thunder heard from 1840 -1930 here in Farnborough, accompanied by a heavy if brief shower, max rainfall rate 80 mm/hr, total 4.6mm. I observed lightning and through the good old counting method determined that the nearest strike was approx 1 mile away.
Temperature dropped from 23.0C at 1730 to 16.1C at 1900.
