It's brilliant here. Frequent lightning, booming thunder, and heavy rain. :D

 

Could have more to come in the coming hours too!

That storm near Wolverhampton seems to keep weakening and then strengthening. Hopefully it strenghtens for a while.

Hopefully it'll tap in to some fresh energy when it reaches us.

Deep, rumbling thunder here now and regular flashes. Looks to be passing just to the E (as always) but a good show on offer so far.

Eastbourne and Hastings is about to get battered by a mega storm. Throwing out some major strike over the channel.

My fingers are bloody crossed! Please, please don't die out!

 

Good sign, but I'm trying not to get too excited, especially with how they've gone recently!

The one that died near Sheffield seems to be sods law for up here

more storms brewing either side of the english channel, plus an MCS in the making over western France that should give us a show heading towards dawn/breakfast time if it holds together

One to watch in SE, one of the cells is quite discrete, may or may not take on more severe characteristics. It coud just merge in to the line though.

It's happening again, all the energy transferring east into Kent and then Essex. Arg, maybe time to call it a night.

      Storm & Convective Forecast

      Issued 2018-08-06 21:33:50
      Valid: 07/08/2018 00z to 08/08/2018 00z
      THUNDERSTORM OUTLOOK - TUESDAY 7TH AUGUST 2018
      Synopsis
      North Atlantic upper trough will begin to amplify S and SE across the far west of Britain during Tuesday, with a strengthening upper flow across the UK – as SWly jet stream shifts S and E across the UK. Ahead of the jet streak, a weak surface cold front will progress slowly east, to lie North York Moors - West Sussex by 00z Weds. A very hot, humid and increasingly unstable airmass ahead of the cold front across SE England and East Anglia is forecast to destabilise and produce thunderstorms in the evening here before the front clears through and introduces cooler and more stable air.
      … SE ENGLAND and E ANGLIA …
      Surface-based CAPE will build up through the day due to surface heating of humid plume in conjunction with lapse rates steepening in association with advection north of EML (elevated mixed layer) aloft. However, this surface instability is likely to remain capped. However, a shortwave in the strengthening flow aloft will move NE from Bay of Biscay area in the morning crossing NW France in the afternoon. The increased lift by the shortwave along NW edge of hot and humid plume over France and SE UK combined with increasing mid-level instability as dry air intrusion punches NE overlapping plume, is forecast by many models to break out thunderstorms across Brittany and Normandy by early evening, before spreading / expanding NE across SE England then East Anglia through the evening.
      Thunderstorms are likely to be elevated, though 40-50 knots of 0-6km shear forecast will allow storm organisation into clusters, perhaps even an MCS passing over parts of Kent and eastern E Anglia, so there is potential for strong storms that may bring locally intense downpours leading to flash-flooding, isolated hail, strong wind gusts and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning. These storms should clear away NE into the North Sea after midnight.

      A new thread for all things convective around the UK going into the summer of 2018.
      Old thread here:
      Convective weather relating to Europe should go into here:
      A chance of a few thunderstorms this week with central and southern parts of England and Wales looking most at risk. Although Monday is now moving into the reliable timeframe it is still too early to discuss specifics for the week as a whole. It is likely though that this week will provide some thundery showers or storms for a few of us. An easterly flow will probably favour more western areas for home grown storms, but elevated storms from the continent could also affect southern and south-eastern areas at times.
