  1. I would definitely say that there were some unusually powerful + positive cloud to ground strikes yesterday as the sound of the thunder and look of the lightning was exactly the same as i've seen on storm chase videos which show this type of lightning.
  2. Had to add also that our electricity went off twice earlier due to the + positive cloud to ground strikes.
  3. Yes pretty sure thats the type of lightning we had here earlier too!
  4. Well, that was an impressive storm. Constant rumbles to start with which would have looked great at night, then torrential rain and some powerful cloud to ground lightning which to me actually seemed to look and sound positive. The reason why I think there was some positive lightning is because the thunder sounded of the sort that I have heard on storm chaser videos that sound like cannons going off and the lightning had virtually no branches. Shame that I was in fear most of the time thinking what may happen if our house got struck by one of those sorts of bolts!
  5. I know! Loads of rumbles here at the moment.
  6. Lots of rumbles here now, thinking they must all be from intra cloud lightning.
  7. Looks like a lot of lightning a far way from here looking at the radar!
  8. Have heard a few rumbles of thunder to my southwest now.

  9. I can here thunder here to my southwest! Just a few rumbles so far though.
  10. Skies certainly look unstable and thundery looking here this morning though whether it brings any actual thunder is open to doubt. Having just seen Sky News weather everything looks to be too far north of here to be honest with most storms shown to be over the midlands.
  11. I take it the risk is moving away from our zone then based on latest outputs? I really want us to get something here tomorrow as I don't want us to completely end up missing everything from this two week forecast thundery period.
  12. I really hope we get some thunder tomorrow as I don't wan't to go through this forecast thundery period without even getting one rumble of thunder! I can't honestly tell whether it looks good for our area tomorrow for convective weather as all the forecasts are different.
  13. Why oh why couldn't we have had that.
  14. Pretty confident that this is an official bust here now. Do not have the energy or the bother to stay up late for the possibility of seeing a few flashes of lightning. As others have said though, hopefully Saturday will give us something instead. I hope!
  15. Hope so! This evening really is our last chance now.
