It has gone very dark here and has suddenly started to thunder and lighting.

we did about half an hour ago. proper rolling thunder, going constantly rather than big crashes although there were a few of them too

Constantly rumbling thunder here. It's not stopping at all, can hear it constantly for ages now - scary!

Chocotrekkie Sat 07-Jun-14 06:43:04

No - we cancelled our day out today on the basis of it happening so hope it comes....

MrsLeonard Sat 07-Jun-14 06:45:23

In Bristol not yet going to an all day music festival today so the rain that's currently hammering down can fuck right off

I have just checked and we have 98 % humidity and only a 37 % chance of a storm at 6 pm!!!

LauraChant Sat 07-Jun-14 06:59:37

Sorry that sounded so abrupt! Got cut off! I meant to say no, just annoying.

thefemaleJoshLyman Sat 07-Jun-14 07:02:27

Thunder just started here. Am going out for a run soon, think I might get wet. smile

I wish! I love thunder and lightning. I'm in Durham and it's gloriously sunny this morning.

Sparklingbrook Sat 07-Jun-14 07:04:31

We have just had an hour of it-all quiet again now. There were hailstones and torrential rain.

DuckSongRocks Sat 07-Jun-14 07:05:07

Yep - rumblings started about 20 mins ago...

MrGeresHamster Sat 07-Jun-14 07:05:22

Devon had it during the night, it was very big!

PunkrockerGirl Sat 07-Jun-14 07:05:43

Yes, about half an hour ago here. It was amazing.

slalomsuki Sat 07-Jun-14 07:06:59

Been going for about half an hour but rain only been on for 5 mins. Very dark though despite it being sunny at. 5. Doubt kids sports will be on for one.

Has it stopped by you then sparkling? The clouds are coming from your direction so I guess ours will stop now then?
