I took a look outside and the few clouds here are going East to West. No chance of the French storms making landfall in the S/E UK.

Seen it all before, no Kent clipper, No Thames streamer so time for bed children!!!

 

crying inside already

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2635167#extra-uk-content bbc predictions show it will be blown west when it meets the coast, it'll only skim the UK South coast, hope they are wrong!

 I mentioned that earlier, the modelling has had a pretty good handle on it. I think some are getting a bit over-excited.

I dunno, it does seem to be struggling to get off the coast. One can only hope!

To help you get an idea on steering, overlay the 850 upper wind vectors on the radar..

Le Touquet airport has a METAR of "orage moderé". They may or may not make it across. It's early season. I'm not disappointed with my few rumbles. My storm season here in Haute Vienne is proper summer! Bon courage les anglais!

Do you think it will go anywhere near me???

Tbh it looks most likely to go south of you but who knows.  I still don't expect there to be much electrical activity by the time it reaches these shores anyway, though there could be some very heavy rain for some.

It's certainly dragging its heels.

I've been watching it since 16:00, it's slowly tracked North but seems to be back building taking advantage of surface heating.

I would be surprised it it makes it across the channel, and the latest sferic S/E of Eastbourne is probably a glitch!!

I don't want to preempt things but you might just be "striking" lucky...

Day 2 Convective Outlook

VALID 06:00 UTC Thu 12 May 2016 - 05:59 UTC Fri 13 May 2016

ISSUED 18:53 UTC Wed 11 May 2016

ISSUED BY: Dan

Remnant convection will likely be ongoing across S / SW England first thing on Thursday morning, this clearing westwards to give sufficient insolation to develop isolated showers, more especially late afternoon into the early evening where low-level convergence (onshore flow plus topographical forcing) aids development. Forecast profiles suggest drying and warming aloft from the east through the day, therefore limiting depth of convection and resulting with the deepest instability becoming increasingly confined to the far SW. 

Lapse rates are once again fairly poor, despite high CAPE values forecast given relatively high dewpoints, and hence lightning will be fairly isolated (generally sub-SLGT criteria) with the main threat being local flash flooding from slow-moving heavy downpours in a high PWAT environment (high 20s mm). The strongest cells may perhaps produce hail up to 1.0cm in diameter, while relatively low LCLs and low-level convergence could once again produce a couple of funnels / weak tornadoes. Isolated elevated convection may affect parts of SE England on Thursday night.
