Looking on Blitz it looks as though some new activity is starting up SW and Midlands.

Kicking off here now! Lovely lightning forks and loud thunder. That was much faster than I though it would hit here.

Great to see - shows the amount of instability in the atmosphere, even at one of the coolest parts of the day! The lightning seems to have subdued more and coming from the NE now.

It's because it's actually forming just west of you. The same happened to me around 40 minutes ago. It just started lightning pretty close from not much prior.

Unexpected, freak strikes in Kettering (N Northants), which are temporarily dipping lights and fans. Powerful stuff out there. No mention of any activity on the lightning detector, though--perhaps pings will appear after the next refresh.

Amazing how much rain/thunder is moving across the channel. I know one thing for sure at least I should get some rain. I was just watching a few distant flashes to the north west of me.

Being spoilt here tonight, second cell came up from the East side of Buxton and whamed over the village. Got one CG strike that must have hit a power surge protector as seconds after the strike the entire village went into darkness for 30 seconds. CGs pretty much consistently around 20s or so, big booms aswell.

Was just thinking of going to bed, but we've just started getting flashes of lightning and rumbles of thunder, along with rain!

Watching the storm that was over Manchester and the Pennines from my east facing window. Some distant rumbles every now and again

I was spoilt there, the cell that popped up over me has diminished into nothing as it headed north of St Helens.

Back to sleep for me now!

      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.
