  1. Got dark clouds bubbling up right on top of me now. They might do something soon?
  2. They're quick movers. The one I was hearing is already in Cannock and heading out to Staffordshire/Derbyshire. Looks like some more could be about though.
  3. You can hear it too? It must be a good one then. Like I said, don't normally hear them on that side of Wolverhampton so clearly here.
  4. Don't normally hear the thunder so clearly from a storm that distance away here. Quite breezy out so think the sound is carrying on it.
  5. Quite a bit of thunder in the distance now. Think this is the one Wolverhampton way?
  6. Some wonderful anvils going up around here. Still clear overhead though and can't hear anything. Tell a lie...that was thunder just then!
  7. Looking a little bit out of reach tonight and tomorrow for storms I have to say. But, on the plus side, we certainly got the heat today. ...and can't complain if we miss out on the storms after all those direct hits in June,
  8. A lot of Ac Cas to my northwest but still fairly clear skies to my south. A good indicator of how touch and go it's going to be to get a storm here. My guess at this stage is that anyone heading this way to storm chase may need to keep going past us and get a bit further north. I think the West Midlands is too much on the edge of where the activity is going to be. Distant flashes from Lickey Hills would make for pleasant viewing though!
  9. Hullo..I've been awoken from my forum slumber...something interesting is on the way I see! And I'm off work this week.
  10. Mini downpour just then. Nothing compared to what we have seen so far this week but interesting nonetheless. Maybe there could be developments here after all?
  11. Looks like we may have a quieter day here as there's been an obvious push south and east as far as the set up goes. Having said that, plenty of convection around still...so you never know. For those further south..it's all looking good if rather slow moving. From our experience this week..you may end up having to go to the storm rather than waiting for it to come to you! Yesterday's storm here stuck over Brierley Hill like a limpet on a rock!
  12. The storm has been centred over Brierley Hill for well over an hour now. Must be incredible down that way. Still hearing it quite a bit from here,
  13. It's just not giving up to my southwest! Still have bright skies to my northeast. Amazing how it's just not moving.
  14. It must be bad there. We are right on the edge of the storm here and it's very loud here! Not much in the way of rain here though.
