Air is really dry but still, am always keen for something if it gets going. Brief storms around midday but nothing to really get that excited about and sink your teeth into. Only heard one rumble and that was it.

Yes was quite good rolling thunder for a time yesterday, even seen a nice bright purple flash of lightning while we were at the chip shop

Got a graupelly shower @ 6:20pm with a slight burst of the SW. You could see it coming in a form of a type of virga of which term I won't explain as it's a bit rude and only suitable for adults [-X . [-X

Wasn't that stormy, today on the 7th. Sadly the ridge got in the way.
Anyway, a good day for photosynthesisysing, here in Canterbury :smile:
