  1. I’m off to sleep now, let’s see if I get woken up later... I’m again employing my tactic of expecting nothing so that anything that does happen is a pleasant surprise
  2. Just popped to the greenhouse to water the tomatoes, it’s blooming hot out there, but I did see quite a bit of accas up in the sky Maybe, just maybe there’s a slim chance. I’ll take anything at this point!
  3. That Crewe camera is incredible... flashing almost constant Although does make me slightly depressed as I watch it from my sweatbox of a bedroom down in Essex
  4. Can just about make out the Oxford cell through the haze from here too but I don’t think you’d be able to see it clearly in a picture
  5. West London cell from here, grew in size very rapidly I wonder if I’d be able to see lightning if it was slightly darker..?
  6. Looks like something else is trying to bubble up behind the Wycombe cell Edit: And sure enough, the radar shows something directly over Heathrow
  7. I could be imagining this, but it looks like the right most part of the anvil is growing as I watch it!
  8. My view of the Wycombe storm from over here in Essex. Impressive considering it’s the other side of London!
  9. 37.8C at Heathrow now. Am I right in saying that 38C is needed to break the cap?
  10. I’m holding on to the fact that one of my favourite storms in recent years took place in September (2nd, 2017) Good things come to those who wait, right?
  11. Storm eased off now. Wasn’t much, but was still more than I was expecting today. Thought I just saw a bit of rotation a minute ago too but not sure Still, the Cone has at least become less silent in the last week or so
  12. Yep, just got noticeably cooler here too. Shame, but at least the high humidity is on the way out
  13. Shame about the lack of anything in the SE, because I’ve just been out for a walk and it still feels and looks pretty ripe
  14. Starting to see some signs of instability coming in from the South here too, that gives me a glimmer of hope for later...
  15. Just looked outside and there’s a huge CB to the North, that doesn’t seem to match anything on radar. It looks way too close to be the cell over Newmarket, but according to radar there’s nothing else between here and there (yet?)
  16. Suddenly just got a lot windier here, which has blown all the clouds away. Doesn’t look like anything’s happening here today now, but at least we had that little storm this morning
