  1. Just had a few rumbles here with some showers that have been going on since this morning.
  2. A few rumbles here just now in amongst the showers.
  3. Don't know if anyone else saw it last night but I saw some faint occasional flashes to the southeast of here past midnight last night before i went to bed so either it was lightning going on somewhere or fireworks. Certain it was lightning because of the way the flashes flickered. And i know heat lightning is a thing where on a clear night you can see lightning from long distances and there is no thunder because of how far the storm is.

  5. Maybe tomorrow will be the first decent day for longer duration thundery weather this year then. Looks like there will certainly be plenty of showers about and more then there were today so its just whether or not they will be beefy enough to produce lightning.
  6. Hope the risk of thunder moves further west for tomorrow as the southwest hasn't been very lucky for decent duration of storms this Summer.

      Only four thunder-days over here, so far, this year...

  7. Agree! Have to say we have been quite unlucky for storms here this summer with only a few rumbles the last time and two short-lived periods of intense storms in May and June. Personally hope the risk does move further west as I wan't something to come from all of this extended unpleasant heat.
  8. Brilliant lightning displays and good rumbles from mid-level storms!!!!!
  9. Was outside in the field seeing well developed cumulonimbus clouds with dark bases and loads of rumbles. Then got drenched running back to the house which was fun.
  10. Looks like the wind peaked at 45mph this morning right before the heavy rain band moved through.

    Looks like we peaked at 45mph right before the squall came through.
  12. Very squally rain just passed here with some very gusty southwesterly winds. Quite a lot of 30mph+ gusts recorded on the top of our tree tower.

    Pretty fun morning here with very gusty winds. Many gusts in the 30s mph and there may have been higher in more exposed spots in the garden. Very squally rain just passed as well.
  14. It probably did cause the most damage for more eastern and Northern areas of England with many 60-80mph gusts but for us here in the southwest it was the same as the winds we had just after Christmas. Nothing unusual here as we look to have had 40-50mph gusts. We have already had that level of gusts a few times this Winter, I got 46mph in the garden last night, and had recorded two 47mph gusts a few weeks back from another low pressure system. However it is clear that the three areas worst effected were southeast england, East Anglier and especially Norfolk were 80mph gusts hit which is pretty powerful compared to the typical peak gusts we get from storms in winter down here of 30-50mph.
  15. A bit breezy this evening with clear intervals and cloud. Had a top gust of 46mph last night though this was isolated and most gusts were in the 25-38mph range. Very similar to the winds we had just after Christmas.
