From earlier. This is about as good as I got due to it being daytime  

Another one approaching me.   https://forum.netweather.tv/gallery/image/19845-/

As a 32 Year old, When I see storms heading for me, I'm like a child running between windows , up and downstairs, checking the radars. Grabbing the camera, running again up an downstairs. Jumping up a

I was interested in the 12z run somewhat with -1 li and 400kj cape but just received the 18z and was surprised to see it has upgraded for norfolk for tomorrow.

Gonna view some more charts but will have to wsit and see for tomorrow.

BBC really not getting excited over the possibilities, no mention of storms, and only of rain for Tuesday.

Thunder storms are becoming the new snow! Plenty of promise, then it all goes pear shaped and we are left with nothing! :(

That is some chart mind for Tuesday! :DPosted Imageukcapeli.png

 

If I must say the charts for next week look epic! ;)

Are other factors such as shear, theta etc showing as good? Cape and LI are only showing the potential energy, but not the triggers to tap into that energy.

I think if the GFS overview forecasts on the thunderstorms up in the northeast this evening are anything to go by, many places should see some spectacular thunderstorms. I somewhat feel UKMO are strongly underestimating the potential with the next few days.

We indeed have the front as the trigger. Definitely the further west you go the better at the moment as areas's further east are still fairly strongly capped due to the high pressure, by the time the front moves further eastwards there is plenty of moisture around by then and little cap. Not too sure on shear quiet yet. No expert by any means just my thoughts.

For Monday the shear is good in the west and the theta plume is across most of us but apparently it is the western side that is likely to destabilise. This would indicate the best risk is for western parts (SW, Wales and NW). 

 

For Tuesday charts are looking very good at the moment with widespread CAPE and shear also much more widespread along with Low Pressure overhead and the plume still in place. Cold front moving in from the west into that plume and a trough showing to form ahead of the cold front.

 

I believe the trigger is the destabilisation of the plume due to the approaching cold front (not an expert analysis just what I have read).

What charts do you view to check the amount of shear forecast?

I've seen a few mention 'isolated thunderstorms' for tomorrow on for S Scotland/Pennines/N Wales regions, one said 'intense thunderstorms' too, then one that actually went to Tuesday said 'a much higher risk of seeing some thundery showers on Tuesday'. 

 

It is probably inconsistent between forecasts and forecasters,but I've never really known the BBC to give a definite with storms really especially 2 days out, I don't think then mentioned thunder for the NE this evening, and think I remember on June 28th 2012 when some severe storms/supercells with larger than golf ball hail broke out forecasts I saw just said 'thundery showers' or 'thundery downpours' lol

Yes the south hasn't done as well as the areas you've mentioned, recently!
