There was some pretty heavy rain for a time overnight here in mid-Devon, but none of the overnight thunderstorms (fig 1) seemed to have survived the trip over the cold sea from Belgium and the Netherlands though. We certainly didn’t need any additional rainfall in our part of the world as the ground is already fully saturated.
