    There's much potential yeah but I am still pessimistic. Maybe we'll have a few rumbles on Saturday. Albeit in the distance as per usual for this area.

    BBC does seem to be quite west, ESTOFEX don't seem to be as far west issuing their level 2 in the Bay of Biscay. I don''t expect everything to be as far west as it is, but we'll see.

    I wish the best of luck to all of you all over the Country. It's looking juicy in vast areas of England, Wales and Scotland for some big thunder storms late Friday Night and in to Saturaday. All through Saturday too. Please though, if you have a camera record it!

    Morning everyone, well it looks like the potential for some decent storms is still there, looking forward to at least 1 good one over the next 2/3 days, i am making sure the camera is primed and ready and i will fire up the Lincolnshire storm magnet. stay safe everyone, this could go with a bang.

    Estofex looks extremely encouraging. A level 2 just to the S of me, this could be a crap night or one of the best nights ever.

    When I see a altocumulus castellanus cloud line then I'll get excited, only saw a tiny bit last night.

    What a great start to the day! Lots of exciting developments and good news about prospects for the next few days. Hope everyone gets a good share of the thunder cake too.

    Just remember to be safe if you're out and about - it's very easy to worry about the lightning or the hail and forget that there are gonna be strong winds too! So watch out for dangerous gusts and stuf blowing off of other stuff.

    Ever remember our classic storms of the 90's! This looks like it will be a trip down memory lane. Have not seen the steering upper winds this directly south since like a decade ago! This is what's been responsible for sending the huge French monsters into holland etc, not now! :p

    i am sure that would amuse a few peeps as lincs has come in for a bit of stick regarding the ammount of storms we have had so far this year,im starting to get withdrawl symptons, last thunder we had here was Saturday afternoon, all good fun though and lets hope everyone gets to see at least 1 good storm, and this is making up for the first snowless winter we had here since i moved to Lincs 12 years ago

    Carol on an earlier forecast, didn't say "humdingers", but provided some amazeballs insight, apparently some of the thunderstorms will be "thundery"

    The met office are still going for Thunderstorms the only thing solve still is where they will hit as some will inevitable miss them

     

    Friday:

     

    Scattered heavy showers continuing to spread northwards over Scotland and Northern Ireland. Mainly dry, very warm and humid elsewhere, hot in the south. Further thunderstorms possible in the south later.

     

    Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

     

    Frequent thundery showers likely to spread northwards on Saturday, with torrential downpours in places. Further showers on Sunday, less widespread than Saturday. Showers easing through Monday. Very warm and humid.

    Is it really a Spanish Plume though - it seems more a homegrown event on Friday into Saturday with similar taking place over the near continent also.??

    A Spanish plume is not defined by importing storms...it's simply the origin of air from over the Spanish plateau but which happens to be often very unstable and conducive to thunderstorms. Furthermore, home grown storms from a Spanish plume are in my experience just as awesome, if not better as far more likely to be surface basedI would caveat this however by saying a mature night time MCS, especially one that's surface based, does take some serious beating (especially if you like trying to capture lightning shots like me :D) Edited by Harry
