Looks almost as if the line across the south has run into an area of descent - the bands ahead of it were disolving. yeah the mcs has got pretty inactive too. still, fingers crossed ..

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

Yup...all developed due northwest - Still caught some cracking CGs, loud rumbles etc over an hours worth to be fair, albeit fairly distant lol. Here's hoping for the beefy looking imports to rudely awake us later! If you're asleep that is :)

 

I NEED sleep lol. Was up at 4.45 for work this morning!

If the MCS takes a blow from its channel crossing, are our conditions ripe enough for it to regain some momentum over our land? 

You'd hope so but considering the storms which are just passing over southern England now, they don't seem to regain any intensity but anything could still happen right now.

Well fingers crossed that the MCS makes landfall with some strength left.

 

Otherwise it has been a great day for some, and we can all hope that this is a sign of things to come!

You see that gap right where Bristol is... That's me.

 

A great capture of the lightning strikes on the other hand.

If any of you have

I certainly agree with you :80:, if anyone hasn't noticed showers have formed between the rain band in the middle of the channel and on the front edge of the MCS, these may intensify?

 

Front edge indeed intensifying as it enters the channel! Lightning strikes becoming more frequent there now.

Just seen a single flash to my south! fingers crossed!  Cant see anything on sferics in the vicinity??

Don't rely on sferics which are notoriously unreliable...I saw a number of thunderstorms last year which were in some cases were far far more active than sferic detection would suggest

  saw dark ominous cloud from wigan looking west but knew by the look of it that is must electrical, so took a drive down the a580 and sure enough started to see lightning as I approached around the St Helene area toward Liverpool, saw about 20 plus flashes of cg, intracloud and sheet lightning all pinkish and blue in colour, not the most frequent lightning but not bad for a storm starved guy like me

Tomorrow's potential seemingly being shunted further and further north. At this rate most of the Midlands and Wales may have a largely fine day, with most of the storms maturing further north with the S'ly flow.

Harry - thanks for the information!  I was questioning myself when I typed that :)  You have confirmed what I was sort of thinking. :)
