With the clouds looming overhead, thick and heavy grey with rain, and the darkness spreading through the sky, I get a tingling in the tips of my fingers. This afternoon I am all built-up-energy, brain flashing, fidgeting and unable to sit still. I look about me, thoughts not staying on one surface for longer than a few seconds, and even my speech is faster, less coherent, jumping about.

I get the feeling of a thunder storm brewing, the closeness and this reined in energy are sure signs to my mind. I want to jump up and run out, dancing in the rain drops, getting soaked to the skin. Instead I am surrounded by exam scripts, elastic bands and chatter, listening to the heavy raindrops hit the window. All frustration, all bound up, and the tingling in my fingers doesn't stop.

You're absolutely right, it is the imminent storm, isn't it. I haven't been able to concentrate on one thing for more than 60 seconds today and my words are all jumbled wrongness.
The skies over London are black - here's hoping it breaks soon...

We have the exact same weather as you do in the U.K. Personally, I think there is a large, black cloud over most of the earth. LOL. :)
