Rapid development of cells over Crawley in the last 10 minutes. With any luck heading for London

Think yours is the one I can see way off to my East Darren.

 

Can hear faint thunder now but some great lightning.

Ah well that slid by to the West, thought I was in for a real treat for a while.

It's currently over me, all IC/CC strikes but I've seen some amazing anvil crawlers. This has come from very little activity in terms of number of strikes from about 1 per minute to well over 6/7 strikes per min now.

Yes the lightning is practically overhead but it's so elevated and crawling along the clouds the thunder is long drawn out rolls!

This is the first night storm for me in probably well over 5, maybe closer to 10 years?

You stole my storm!  :diablo:

 

Looking out now and there is another coming up but again sliding to my West. Looks like fun and games for you for a while.  :good:

Don't be surprised if you suddenly start getting lighting, this activity burst from nowhere and it seems to be morphing and evolving as it moves north. Thunder is less frequent now, but seems a lot louder?

Well, I'll be up for an hour or two more drinking beer and listening to David Allen Coe. Never know what may develop in or around these storm clusters/MCS

Not been bad here, decided to stay put and saw a fair few decent CG and Anvil crawlers along with many flashes.

 

Essex taking a real battering now, like the old days i suppose?!  :wink:

 

Just hope this cloud that is blanketing the country will clear off before it inhibits and home grown storms later today!

 

Night folks

My storm is rumbling off to the N/NW producing some great lightning. That was a nice surprise. Looks like I have a good hour or so of pretty drab rain now.

Ok here it comes. Nice big flashes, seems more like an elevated electrical storm.

      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.
