    Evening all :)

     

    In the part of SW London where I work, the temperature topped out at 1pm at 30c. Back here in east London, I thought the Estuary breeze would keep us a notch cooler but we're on 30c as well at present which is extraordinary.

     

    As to storms tonight, who knows ? I see nothing approaching as yet but as they say, the night is young...

    If only that chainsaw shaped storm was coming our way-

    The trajectory of the storms looks to be starting to bend back directly north!

    Blimey the weather even merited a headline on Look East just now with Chris Bell - shame the charts on view showed absolutely nothing in Norfolk (well, that's true - there IS nothing in Norfolk)

      :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:

     

    Strange, I can't recall being interviewed! :rofl::pardon:

    Might I preface the question I'm about to ask with the explanation that I've been busy with distance-learning work and haven't been around much, but what's happened to JP?

    Evening all.....A Scorchio warm day it was, still is now, 27.5C at the moment. Cracking storm early hours. Hopefully bigger and better to come over night.

    Even if i miss out, i think this is certainly an exciting time. Although it has been said here that headaches and storms are unrelated, i had one just before the storm at 5am and i've got one on the way now. Hopefully a sigh of things to come :)

     

    got the right time lightning map behind running the back ground click click click

    SoIs there a hope I won't get any storm here tonight ? It's just not my cuppa tea :(

     

    As far as I'm aware, these Spanish Plume set-ups are difficult to forecast in terms of "will person A get a storm?" due to the complex factors involved, but I'd be surprised if you (or I, for that matter) get through the night without hearing something.

    I was terrified of storms right through to my late teens, and I must admit I'm a bit wary of close, violent ones overnight (which is what's probably going to happen tonight) even now.  My advice would be to follow the radar - it'll give you a much better idea of what's happening than forecasts as such close range.  If you haven't got one already, and can afford it, you might want to set up a Netweather "Radar only" subscription as the 5-minute V6 radar is superb.

    I'm australian and the storms there I'm told were huge I was 3 yrs old when I come to uk so maybe I picked up a fear when I was younger ? But I hate them my heart pounds too :(

    Wouldn't rule anything out with this one, merging and changing direction. I'm smack bang in line with it, it's an absolute beast, quite a lot about to get smashed very soon big time.

    What a 24 hours of weather this is shaping up to be, amazing surprise storms last night, a scorching hot day and now the potential of severe storms to top it off

    Incredible thinking of what might be a just around the corner when sitting in the garden now without a cloud in the sky, love this weather!

    Good luck to everyone tonight, hopefully things keep on the safe side of extreme

    I'm watching the radar now it will be here any minute and I'm home alone with my 6 month old. If any of u experts can reassure me that the supercell might skim me that would be great but I don't know what I'm going to do tonight I nearly passed out last night as it is!

    I hate to say it, but the western end of the MCS appears to be on a direct course - that being said, the worst of it is to your east.
