  1. Still flashing away to the north but, for a while, we had strobe lightning. Not seen that in nearly 30 years!
  2. Altocumulus floccus I think. Instability in the mid levels of the atmosphere?
  3. I was just walking the dog and noticed a massive thunderhead to the South. The other day I saw one in a similar direction with a similar size and when I checked on the radar it was off Hunstanton. Tonight's storm is in The Wash, a distance of 75 miles! Not bad: didn't even think of storms as it just never looked on here today. A nice surprise - would have been better after dark though!....
  4. I can see the anvil of the storm(?) off the N Norfolk coast and the one heading towards Whitby. Great visibility now...
  5. Yep, there seems to be a big storm near Honfleur and smaller, satellite storms North of Carentan, at Caen and North of Le Havre. Deffo seems to be getting going again now big time.
  6. Honfleur is getting hit: let's hope its beautiful wooden church survives this. It has for hundred's of years but other churches in France haven't been so lucky of late... Nice place Honfleur.
  7. Definitely picking up again all around Le Havrte and even North of there just entering the Channel.....
  8. @reef I was driving home into the storm and saw the lightning over the Wolds from the M62 near Howden. Missed the worst (best!) but watched it back-build to the SE then head out into the N Sea. I agree, better than any storm last year and I missed the arcus!
  9. Reef, we actually got about 3 inches overnight and I have been sledging this morning! Complete surprise and very welcome. The band that went through an hour or so ago just clipped us to the east but I reckon you had a good bit: I hope you did. Another approaching now with a few more behind.... The battle today is between the amount of cloud v the amount of sun we get plus how much comes out of each shower to top up what's on the ground. We'' know the winner by 16:00.
  10. Fascinating storm: been following it for a couple of weeks and thought it was going to loop-da-loop again but this time it was not to be. Hints of Vince from 2005 too at the end...
  11. Big shower developed suddenly and moved over us but no thunder from it: maybe it's too late in the day....
  12. Kinda weird on radar, it just seems to have petered out just West of Hull bu developed on the S bank. I cannot count how many days I have heard thunder and looked South and it has been black then checked the radar and it has been Scunny way on....
  13. Still rumbling here: started at 17:56 with about a flash every couple of minutes. Saw one bolt of lightning, which was IC. Nice to see even if now heading Reef's way. Most of the activity passed just to the south so heading for Hedon?
  14. Yep, really, really weird this year with the easterlies. There was a period last spring too but never at the right time it seems and not as long as this one. This year we kinda missed all the good weather too due to the fret as the N Sea was still sooo cold with warm air coming across it. Even Doncaster was sunny but around here the fret and low cloud that develops from it were the order of the day. Hopefully the change in direction we have just experienced, will mean a change in weather luck!
