Weather In Southern England

Tue Jul 04, 2006 11:58 pm

Got some bad weather in the south at the moment with thunder storms currently over Luton. The last time we had weather like this there was a lot of diversions due to some bad cells especially over by the Bovingdon hold.

Just wondering if there has already been any diversions or any problems caused by the weather?

stay safe!

Still very sunny at LHR but there are some very menacing clouds forming on the horizon and lots of haze around.

A lot more clouds now over LHR.. im 2 miles east of heathrow.. i can see to the west a lot of dark threatning clouds but i think we will miss them due to the east wind.. hence the aircraft taking off these ways...

Rain? What rain? It's been sunny all day here (under the Gatwick approach), except when we got the BBQ out, then the clouds rolled in and we heard a rumble of thunder or two, but no rain.

I finished work at LHR at 2030 and it was stunning outside, gorgeous sunset and really really warm, was a few clouds out to the west but otherwise nice!
