    5 good flashes so far with pretty loud thunder.....just amazed how quickly it developed...I was sat in the back garden with a cheeky cigarette scanning the skies for signs of lightning, and saw the faintest of flickers far to my south, then crash, bang, wallop....nearly fell out of my chair in shock and the mad scramble to get camcorder out!..........just popped inside now to check the radar, and it's all going off, big time plume destablization!.....storms firing in many places in the south with big, big storms firing over France heading our way!

    Was it like the ""You're gonna need a bigger boat- Jaws scene?" ahah

    Just seen 3 cracking CG strikes far off in the distance, some intermittent faint flashing and 2 bright flashes through my bedroom window. Would these be the storms breaking out over Birmingham area I can see??

    No way that what i'm seeing is down Birmingham way, these IC flashes are too near and bright unless cloud tops really are 40kft. Had a flash a few secs ago that looked like it could have been around Stoke in realistic terms.

    If diurnal heating and/or the lift impulse by outflow boundaries suffice to break the capping inversion in these regions, particularly well-organized supercells could spawn a few tornadoes, possibly even including a strong one.

    I've virtually given up here in East Anglia. Had a few flashes and distant rumbling at 10PM and nothing since. 

     

    Think tomorrow (or today) morning and into the afternoon is our best chance in the South East.

    • Cool Showerfest continues for the next week. Hints of a change beyond that?

      With the jet stream close to the south and low pressure nearby over the next 7 days, expect showers or longer spells of rain over many areas, staying cool too, with temperatures below average. But hints of something drier and more settled arriving next weekend. View the full blog here
