  1. Well it’s just sods law really. We finally got an easterly in winter but we’re missing that one important ingredient that we seem to get every other day of the year - precipitation! Roll on storm season!
  2. Interesting! I reckon I saw around 10 bolts yesterday, and judging by the posts on here they were all -CG. This was the only one that came out well on camera. Are +CGs rare in the UK?
  3. My view of the Oxfordshire cell on Tuesday evening from North Dorset. Sadly this storm only lasted for about 20 minutes before collapsing. Not often you get to see such a clear view of an anvil cloud in the UK!
  4. Just had a storm in North Dorset. Biblical rainfall constant thunder but not much lightning to be seen. I think most of it was intra cloud.
  5. The Somerset cell seems to have back built to the Southern edge somewhat. Dorset might get a look in 👀
  6. Just a heavy downpour here. Had too much cloud cover this morning and the ground just isn’t warm enough to get any proper convection going.
  7. Will it ever end?

      I don't mind the cold.  It's the Atlantic garbage with all that bloody rain and wind I'm sick of.

      Just want some sunshine!!

  8. I also saw what I thought was NLC clouds last night just after sunset.
  9. Scotland and Northern England have done well this year so far. Just goes to show how much you can benefit from a few hundred miles of land to the south, rather than a body of water, i.e. The Channel.
  10. Lots of very heavy showers this morning but nothing thundery in the south (so far). I’m guessing due to the amount of cloud cover not allowing for ground heating, as opposed to much of the north where it’s been warm and sunny this morning and now storms are developing. Certainly a messy picture on radar! Good luck everyone.
  11. Well what a treat I had yesterday evening! Went out for a walk across the corn fields to enjoy the stunning sky filled with ac-cas. Didn’t really expect to see a thunderstorm but noticed this small CB growing, and minutes later to my surprise it threw out a couple of CGs! The cell collapsed soon after.
