    Awesome storm, though NOT overhead

     

    Did you guys n girls see the cloud structure underneath that storm? It was like something in the states, I was waiting for a tornado lol. Then that squall that came through blasting the rain against the window, the lightning was also impressive. It was just a shame it never came over.

     

    1) Why was it not forecasted?

    2) Why was it as strong as it was? When the conditions according to some didn't really favour of that intensity

    3) What was with the intense squall?

    4) Why did hardly anyone pick up on the strong indications of storms with such a flood of altocumulus that come up from the south west?

     

    Shame I didn't have my cam :(

    Have been in Lymington since yesterday afternoon, we had a bit of thunder and lightning here last night around 11pm.

     

    However it seems as though back at home (Worthing) there was even more... Posted Image

    Dont do tips but weather related coincidence bets, I suppose would be:

     

    EL VIENTO  - For the Spanish speaking amongst you. (2.05 Goodwood).

    NASSAU STORM - For those of you lucky enough to have experienced one. (2.05 Goodwood).

    HOT SNAP - Obv, we've just had one, dont fancy that, so that will win. (3.15 Goodwood).

    SNOW TROUBLE - Hope we get plenty of that in the Winter. (4.25 Goodwood).

     

    Did get a few Ante-Post whispers for a horse in the Stewards Cup, a few weeks ago but as we're not in the Midlands thread I wont tell you. Oh, ok then but ssshh!

     

    SHROPSHIRE - (3.50 Goodwood).

     

    No putting life savings on, please!

    Glad people had storms last night but I was tucked up in bed so im not sure if we got anything, im pretty sure I would have been woken by the way people were speaking about them on here though. Nothing again what a surprise.The NW london area must be one of the least storm prone area's in the SE!

    Morning all

     

    Well this "getting cooler", when is it getting here?

     

    Just back from walk into town and found it still rather hot out there, the breeze helps a bit though.

     

    No storms here either that I was aware of last night.

    Hi Jan,

     

    You're a brave girl, looking at the lightning, didn't you have your lights on?

     

    Couldn't really here the thunder, for once told Antony to turn the TV volume up, rather than down, wuss that I am! Posted Image

    Hi JanPosted Image

     

    There was almost continuous distant lightning flashing around 1am which was coming through the blinds in my bedroom. I couldn't sleep anyway, even though this was an additional factor that was keeping me awake. The whole day yesterday and overnight however was completely dry here, so from my own point of view at least, that was yet another escape. Daytime storms are much less of an issue, unless they are especially bad, it is the night time that I like least. The weekend looks pretty good weatherwise, with at least areas south of the Thames missing any showers today, and then most of tomorrow looks pleasant quite generally as wellPosted Image

    Lets see what those cells do I guess, heading this way, will they make it before dying out. 24C here so a lovely day with much lower humidity.

    You're kidding right? I had no idea it was that close... My God, I missed it by just a couple of miles? bummer! Posted Image

     

    It certainly seems the further east in Medway you were, the closer you were to last night's cell. All Rainham peeps I've spoken to said it woke them, but a mate in Frindsbury said it seemed way off in the distance there.

    "Pester". Hee hee! I can assure you, from my point of view, it was anything but a nuisance! Posted Image

    Are they heading my way?  Should I walk the dog now rather than later? Should I bring the washing in?
