Quite frequent and at times bright and vivid SL to the ESE past half hour judging from the radar the storm is near Brecon.

Another thing I found interesting about tonights show is the sheer number of different cells that are kicking out these strikes.

I visually tracked at least 4 or 5 at one point. At least thats the way I have seen it. Not much of an expert but there have been a lot of distinct groupings of strikes for the Bath area...

When it really kicked off here in Bath it was initially around 22 - 23c, and there was cloud to cloud lightning, then the squall came along, dropped down to about 18c - 19c (based on weather pro app) and the lightning turned to cloud to ground being about 50% of the hits...

 

Rapid formation of white clouds happened as soon as the temp dropped, all that water in the air effectively instantly condensing into thick clouds, thats when it really went wild here, hammering it down and CG strikes galore...

 

Awesome evening watching. Being lucky this year in that Bath / Bristol area has had two impressive events.

Lightning has died off a bit but was impressive in nearly all directions for a long time between 9pm and 11pm. Steady rain now and have not had a direct hit yet. Looks like Bristol has had a good hit so far though; makes a nice change as I often get direct hits and Bristol misses out.

Watching the storms going along the channel this morning @ 6am. some great visuals and fantastic height with lightning in the cloud tops, visually great way to begin the day.

As for them happening here, sod all.

17mm in my gauge from the storms and subsequent showers, the wettest individual rain event since the previous electrical storms on 19th July.

 

I think today could be classed as an anything goes day, with the greatest risk of further storms occurring late afternoon into the evening - except for those already ongoing in Dorset/East Devon.

 

16.3c and 99% humidity!

Yes, it's over you at the mo Mapantz. Friends of mine arriving in to work this morning, describing how Christchurch has taken a pummelling this morning with the storm. Claims of continual house shaking thunder for almost an hour. Lightning map shows it well, and I was able to see some of it before it became too light from my vantage point in BOMO.

That looks about it i think?! I can see blue sky and the forecast/models don't show anything else. 

I said Hants/Wilts would be one of the hotspots overnight, and it certainly seems like it after the reports i've seen on Twitter. :)

Off to Cardiff in an hour and won't be back until 4pm. I hope any more storms can wait until later.

Very similar weather to Andy here. If it weren't so cool I would say it's steamy.
