  1. Had a small thunderstorm go over very quickly, but most of the activity is just east of Wellingborough, is there likely to be much action slightly further west?
  2. Strange lightning apps not picking anything up, yet its pretty consistent lightning and thunder here now for the past 15 minutes or so...
  3. Rumble of thunder a few seconds ago! Northampton cell..

    First crack of thunder! Northampton!
  5. Quite a big shower now built right above me and showing on radar with the white center, just south east of Northampton, no electricity yet though, though it feels prime!
  6. Just looking at charts! Then went in Garden and just sat down and looked up, if I look slightly south and east I can see clouds bubbling up high and moving ever so slightly north and west and then if I look West I can see different flatter clouds approaching and getting darker! That CZ is right above me! Location is Great Doddington, Northamptonshire.
  7. Has been very warm and humid all day in Northamptonshire, plenty of sunshine and now the clouds are building well have been building for a time. The people moaning about no storms coming and the conditions are wrong in their area, well that's because your in the wrong area, looking at where they said storms may happen for some, I would say they where spot on. Draw a line from Reading up towards Milton Keynes then to Peterborough and out towards the wash then give 40 miles either side and you could be in luck. :)
  8. Trying to be optimistic, though finding it hard today, no sunshine yet. It is humid and temperature is quite nice, looking at the radar and feeling as if the warnings and forcasts have way over shot what was ecpected, i guess there is time for it to change but i honestly thought their would be more going on down the south coast and towards london.
  9. View to my east! its growing...
  10. Towers going up looking out eastwards from Wellingborough, south east midlands.
  11. Looking at a few charts etc, and just my own opinion I have drawn a little guesstimate of where things may fire up and direction. if course could be 50 or so miles north or south. What we all recon? Peter.
  12. Feeling very warm and humid. Looks to be building to my south, my location being south east midlands! Feels very ripe for more explosive storms.
  13. Good morning, Well what a night! Me and a couple of friends traveled from Rushden down to the Dunstable downs as a middle ground for any chasing, also it was a good high up position for seeing anything in the distance. About 10pm we could see the storms flashing away over London and decided to head just north west of London close to the M25, this was a good choice. We then kept slightly a head of it as we headed to Aylesbury and then headed back home for about 2am as the we could see it would be following us. So much lightning to view, it almost hurt your eyes, will not forget this storm in a hurry. Fingers crossed for more this way today! Peter
  14. Very shocked to see as much snow right now in Northamptonshire! Looking at the radar, the amount of precip is more than I expected and travelling a lot further east, the stupid BBC app suggests no snow all night, but looking at it this powdery stuff will continue all night maybe even get heavier!

    Trouble is the forecast models where there, in front of us, telling us how bad it could be. As fun as it is chasing and forecasting these models I cant help but sometimes think of it as nothing more than glorified guessing, forecasting is pretty darn good 3 - 5 days ahead but anything longer and it just can't be done especially on an island that has so much weather influences from around us.
