    I increased the buffer size to about 3-4 seconds just to make sure I got any long strikes (compensates for my half awakeness too)... Lol.

    Morning everyone, seriously sleep deprived this morning so it's going to be a painful day at work but what a night! Wasn't expecting anything so quite a shock to be awoken by torrential rain and a great light show around 2.30, flashes every 10 seconds and plenty of rumbles, another storm an hour ago that I tried my best to sleep through but what a start to the event!

    Looks like I have hit a gap on the second line of storms. Very dark to the west of me, the sun is lighting it up further with a stunning rainbow to boot. Also heard a low rumble again.

    These look set to clear out of the way by the end of breakfast time (8-9am). So we should see some long spells of sunshine and just a little mid to high level cloud passing through. 

     

    Model output suggests next week will be very warm or hot throughout with the coolest days being Sunday and Monday. Summer has officially gone into overdrive.

     

    Edit - loud crack of thunder here, the rain is pretty light though.

    fantastic set of storms last night

     

    reminded me of years back - waking up to a constant "grumbling" in the distance

     

    then nodded off when first lot pass by

     

    then woke up 5 ish I think to a very very loud crack of thunder - woke the whole house up
