    Commentators at the Cricket at Canterbury on Sky Sports 2 just mentioned a "tornado" nearby. They were broadcasting from a room somewhere instead the ground taking shelter. Match has been abandoned so they've now gone off air.

     

    Was always a strong possibility that something like this would occur, especially south of the river. Any chance of a tornado warning? I don't think so.

     I don't think so.Amazing lightning here now!

    Unlikely to be a funnel cloud, then.

    Can someone in Basildon get a photo of the wall cloud passing over, it's awesome but my wife has nicked my camera!

     

    Mate of mine is out there at the moment, so if he's back in time, I'll nick it.

    They abandoned because of the storm first, then mentioned the other stuff.

    Can the Londoners hear the thunder and see the flashes of lightning yet?

     

    Lightning bolt in SW London just now, looking from mine. And another...

     

    Storm to the SE looks intense.

    They abandoned the game due to the temporary floodlights getting blown about. No doubt the cameramen up on the scaffold weren't feeling too comfy either! They just mentioned there was a tornado "nearby" but didn't actually show any footage.

    Some very convective skies around now as the sun was setting, managed to snap a nice turkey tower going up.

    no mamatus here yet in Basingstoke, central Hampshire, but the skies to the south-east are definitely getting ominous...  

     

    starting to see undulating "waves" in the cloud formations to the SE .. not sure what the technical term for them is..   - it's like a wave in the sky..  

     

    is there a technical term for that kind of formation?

    Are there little cells developing to the NE of Oxford?

     Indeed I think there are cells NE of Oxford. I could see them to the SW of MK being illuminated by the setting sun.

     

    Strike just been picked up to the north of Aylesbury just west of Wing. Corresponds nicely to the towers I could see to the SW of MK

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
