Nice place Rouen. Last time I was there was foggy and -5c. Suspect a bit different today..

Yes. :D 33°C today and now this huge beast.

 

Rouen will may be not concerned by the most violent storm, the two cells are splitting in different directions.

Big downgrade on the latest  nmm for tomorrow. Cape much lower than today's except east coastal regions of East Anglia and the South east. Of course this doesn't mean anything will happen cape today is a much much better and nothing happening. I fancy the South east to get the action tomorrow southern England later tonight dying away as it moves north. Thundery rain.

I was looking at raintoday at 4pm and I havent a clue and even I could tell the storms were going to go up the channel towards Kent....unless Iv missed something?

Edited to add...ok maybe I have missed the point as there are more storms building so I answered my own question :-)

Wouldn't worry about that, ~ Looks like next week is going to be very hot, muggy and stormy to!

Maybe but I thought the same last night here and somewhere between 2 pints of Stella and a bottle of cobra it went crazy.

I currently live in Ashford, Kent.

 

Very closely watching the developments in France. Will be re-positioning myself to the hills above the channel tunnel in Folkestone soon with my D90, 3 fully charged battieries, 2 memory cards and tripod. Fingers crossed it continues heading this way :)

Doesn't look that bad to me.

 
This model is still showing widespread highs of 29C over East Anglia tomorrow so maybe a 30 or 31C is possible in any decent spells of sunshine. 
If the French storm makes it here, I might have to drive to the cliffs at Leigh on sea, should get a great view to the south from there.

The storms moving across the channel at the moment have weakened a little, lightning strikes are certainly less frequent. However as they begin to make landfall somewhere across South-Eastern England they should begin to gain intensity thanks to Diurnal Heating through today and a small area of strong-ish PVA

PVA exploded across the channel on the 9PM chart which should help storms keep their intensity as they cross the channel in a few hours time.

10/11PM onwards is when the real fun should start for us as the trough currently creating the storms across France moves further Northwards. The stuff crossing the channel now is just a bit of a bonus if it does manage to get here.

I kid you not, last night here in Mile Oak our flat got hit by lightning. 

 

I was standing on the balcony when it happened and the noise and blinding light was not funny I can tell you. 

 

I love storms as much as everyone on here, but I have a new respect for them now, I was absolutely terrified.

 

No joke, I was a mere 10 meters away from the strike, as close as I ever want to get to lightning. 

 

Out TV has broken, we have no phone line working and my partners ''Sleep Achnea'' machine broke too. 

 

I'll never forget last night and it's looking like another storm is incoming !!

 

I only wish I had video'd it, because it was beyond description.
