Storms follow hottest day since July 2006
Thunderstorms have continued to affect parts of East Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, East Anglia and the Southeast of England this afternoon, following yesterday's heat.
Temperatures across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire on Monday reached 32C (90F) for the first time since July 2006.
Both Robin Hood airport (the old Finningley RAF base) in South Yorkshire and Humberside airport reached their peaks shortly after lunchtime before cloud moved in from the Southwest, as did Leconfield in East Yorkshire and Waddington in Lincolnshire.
The temperature levels were amongst the highest in the country, beaten only by Gravesend in Kent, where 33C (91F) was recorded.
Today, Leconfield has managed only 17C (63F) - a 15C drop compared with yesterday.
Today's rainfall is adding to what has already been a wet month across many areas. At Coningsby in drought-order hit Lincolnshire, up to and including today, 76mm of rain has been recorded, compared with the average of 54mm.
More rain is needed, but June's rainfall has provided some short term relief following the exceptionally dry spring.
