    It wasn't that big up here in Milton Keynes. No wind, but heavy rain.

    Shame there wasn't that much lightning, as what I watched was good (that passed over). The storm to the east looked more active but was just out of direct eye shot.

    Estofex Level 2 issued for Friday night  for us Wouldve been a level 3 Yikes but not certain yet :)

     

    http://www.estofex.org/

     

     

     

    The focal point of the threat should travel northward across the English Channel and may well affect southeastern England during the 00-06 UTC time frame. Because of this uncertainty, an level 3 was not issued at this time.

    Thanks Anything. I now have the app.

    I was wishing for my camera earlier, but it was downstairs and I was too afraid to get it. The intercloud action was almost tropical.

    • Cool Showerfest continues for the next week. Hints of a change beyond that?

      With the jet stream close to the south and low pressure nearby over the next 7 days, expect showers or longer spells of rain over many areas, staying cool too, with temperatures below average. But hints of something drier and more settled arriving next weekend. View the full blog here
