  1. A real cloudburst here proceeded by a loud crack of thunder.
  2. We've had a few splashes of rain from the 2nd trough out here further west. We may see something here if something can develop on it before it pushes east. But I think it bodes well for places east of here as I think it will continue to grow and produce. If it does, it would fit the warning area nicely. I'm going to keep an eye out just in case here but I think some of you are in for a great night, if you not having one already!
  3. That one is out of my reach now. But looking at the sky in all directions, these things could pop up anywhere. I'm sure there'll be a few more drifting around over the next few hours.
  4. Not quite through the Black Country...just a tad further west than that right now. Still sunny here and can see it to my west...though doesn't look as close as I thought it would.
  5. Right...for the 4th time tonight....i think that's it for the night. No....I really do this time!
  6. Some small but very potent cells just popped up around here in the past half hour. A little cluster of them all over Birmingham and the Black Country. I love this. Just the slightest hint of development and suddenly you've got an angry little storm on your hands!
  7. I think that could be it for here. Still bits and pieces around that could spark up. On a night like tonight it's always hard to tell when it's over!
  8. Think...maybe...that's it for us now? Look at it on the radar cracking it's tail right down to the coast on the Essex/Suffolk border make sure the very east coast sees a bit of it too.
  9. Round 2 only just arriving, but my attention has just been drawn to the southwest of Hereford where a round 3 could be developing?
  10. Can also hear the second lot approaching. Looks a bit messier on the radar, but judging by the reports further south, it should still be good. Could be the last one tonight too...so enjoy it!
  11. The second band heading this way seems to be going a lot slower than the leading one. It's not as active, though still looks interesting.
  12. Thinking about whether it's worth staying up longer to see what the next lot of showers heading this way do. They don't look that electrically charged right now, but the atmosphere is so soupy, there could very possibly be some more.
  13. Well that first band moved very quickly but was mightily impressive as it did so. Seeing it approach was pretty spectacular. Looking like there could be a bit more before the night is out.
  14. Short but very sweet here, with one very loud boom. Round one is clearing off now...looks like a slightly smaller and more scattered round 2 to come. But probably still impressive...hopefully!
  15. Looking like a superb chance for a direct hit tonight. Our weather luck this year on the West Mids has been abysmal. Surely this can't miss?
  16. Sadly I don't think it is coming our way, though I wouldn't rule out some kind of further thundery activity. Looks like our little cell is piping right down again now. I reckon as it continues to meander northeast, it could wake up again and surprise somewhere else.
  17. Looks like it might be dying down a bit again though. Interesting little cell though.
  18. It's the little cell that won't give up. It's ambled slowly this way from the Welsh border and sparked back to life, grown a bit too. Had quite a few rolls of thunder around here now.
  19. It's gone very dark to my southeast all of a sudden. As for developments around northwest France, I think like last week, we need to be wary of possible false returns from outside the main area of storms.
  20. That little cell just to our west is actually holding together remarkably well...even though it's not been electrically active for a while. It could just spark off again, you never know. Clouds to my east are looking a bit more interesting too.
  21. Meanwhile, in a land far far away from any hatch... ...skies are getting a bit more interesting around here. we've got that ex-storm still holding itself together coming in from the west. And interestingly, the clouds are developing to my east, looks like something is trying to bubble up. We may be away from any excitement here, but we're not completely out of the game.
