  1. Well the other side of the Pennines has stole the storms again , yesterdays forecast showed lightning over the NW, yet somehow I still knew it would be a far east event
  2. ^ Not many bad summers in the 1990's, it really was a good period , and for thunderstorms too contrast that to post 2007 , lots appearing in that list of shame, something has changed (low solar)
  3. Cumulonimbus over me now giving just boring rain , not even that heavy, there is no way this one was ever going to be electrical moving over this area
  4. Same here, the ones from the south or north wales always seem to fizzle before they get here, yet storms have no problem developing to the north of here and then beefing up more as they push away further still, this area really does kill them today is a classic example of what usually happens ,it is very annoying , still I got to hear a whole 2 rumbles , yay for that
  5. Lots of thunder from a cell here earlier this afternoon, only two flashes seen of sheet lightning though, most of the lightning was intracloud and not directly overhead , but a very loud cannon shell sound must have been a fairly close CG strike, could have been a positive strike jumping clear of the main thunder cloud

  7. you know when they say frequent lightning its game over , same as humdingers
  8. Seems most of the North West t storms have been over sparsely populated areas , ie the Irish sea , or northernmost moorlands , While Gtr Manchester, Merseyside etc not getting much thunder wise, just moderate sporadic rain this afternoon
  9. not heard thunder today, but some very thundery skies to my north west earlier that were pushing away as usual , too far to hear thunder , pity it wasn't night , as lightning would have been visible , a bust here for sure , again , roll on autumn
  10. I am off work for a week first full week of august , I said a couple of weeks ago that week would be meh at the best , not based on anything scientific , but just because I always time it wrong , looks like I could be right Inevitable really, I always get a jinxed week , always , blame me for a poor start to august
  11. Last weekend was rubbish but as soon as the working week started on Monday the heatwave began. drawing the curtains back to hot sun and blue sky every weekday with temps maxing around 30c most days , Get up Saturday , grey , drab featurless stratus, drizzly , , the weather knows its the weekend again What a sick sense of humour it has
  12. I am off work for a week next week, first full working week of August, sorry folks but that means I have doomed that week to grey, rainy and drab Happens every time
  13. A smaller more isolated storm is seen to the north west at just before midnight, that was acually out to sea near the lytham/blacpool coastline , remember looking at blitzorg just before bed and noticed white 'x's beginning to ping just off the coast there , looked out the window to the west and saw quite vivid flashes, thats about 40 miles from here , The main event came along about an hour later
  14. Saw a few infrequent elevated flashes over the ribble estuary way about 1230 , went to bed not long after at thinking that would be it ,main storms wont happen , after lying there for what seemed about an hour, I started to hear the unmistakable grumbling sound of distant of thunder ! , looked south out of the landing window and saw spectacular IC purple forks lighting all the clouds around them , every 30 secs or so , with another storm going on to the east giving frequent distant blue flashes, awful nights sleep though , feel ill now , but was worth it
