For those too lazy to do the math, thats roughly 198 strikes PER MINUTE...and at least 3 PER SECOND.

 

...mental.

That is totally ON topic!

Totally more on topic than all the Germany/Paris chatter (albeit fantastically impressive stuff granted!!)Just chugging along the M25 - 17C outside, not a lot happening. Pleasing seeing the odd cell pop up though :-)

Seems the stuff around Herts/Beds is providing one or two sferics also.

Looks like a cell popped up in West London and is now travelling pretty much up the M1 at the moment.

Jawoll, vee take zat, but only 0.5 points for our UK players, to make 1 point you need bigger hail, ja?  :acute:

 

Ok, enough off topic, there is something I wanted to point out a while ago already: for those living on the south and east shores there might be a possibility of spotting sprites or blue jets in the troposphere above these cells over the continent. Night vision binocs would be excellent aid. Here more:

It seems to happen all the time in my location! Admittedly not under a huge storm like the one in Germany right now. But certainly they divide either to the left of London and curve up round to Norfolk or elsewhere, or they track up on the other side of Ipswich, along the coast and up to the North Sea. Very frustrating! Am radar watching tonight to see if something does target here, for once.

Interesting to see two cells develop over West London in about half an hour, must be an area of instability?
