Yes, good luck! Stikes south of Basingstoke now, I doubt that will be the last lightning I see tonight.

Apologies for being slightly off topic ( whilst still watching the distant lightning outside ), can anyone advise this technophobe how I can post photo's directly from my smartphone to this or any other NW forum please ?  

 

In the edit box you type in to reply, you should see a 'choose files'  hyperlink just below it. Click it, and it'll open up an action box, then just navigate to the folder where your pictures are. If you click one, it'll start uploading, when it has finished, click the + icon that shows in the uploaded picture, it will place it inline within the edit box.

The maasvlakte2 cam has had more lightning-strikes in two minutes than we've had here in the Peaks for all this year to date.

This storm has been mega, half a mm of rain no thunder and what I thought was lightning turned out to be my neighbour's faulty light blinking in his sunlounge :rofl:

Storms following me around at the moment. A few minutes south east of Tunbridge Wells, where I am now, we've had major storm activity for pretty much 2 hours, although it has drifted away now. Prolonged, deafeningly torrential rain (check out that large, intense blob on radar), constant flashes, 5-10 a minute at times, constant rumbling for about 45 minutes, and I think 3 really good, shattering cracks of thunder (one accompanied by a visible fork as the storm was at its closest point to us).

Best year for storms I can remember. Everywhere I go, there are huge storms. Follow me, storm chasers.

Just wondering, what time is peak instability for the South East? Around 3am?

I am pleased to have something to report for once. Went up onto the Hogs Back, just south of Guildford and watched the IOW cell moving N.E. Although the main activity was to the S.E. (work colleague reported very heavy rain at Loxwood, West Sussex), get a couple of reasonable photos including the dual discharges at 10:21 pm. 

The first lightning was at 9:59 pm and first thunder was at 10:07 pm when approaching the Hogs Back. Much lightning to south and S.E. in next 20 minutes. Closer discharge at 10:30 pm with quite loud thunder (about a mile away). Spots of rain at 10:25 pm then moderate to heavy shower at 10:30 pm to 10:45 pm.

Lightning receding to N.E. with last distant thunder heard at 10;55 pm. There was clear sky to the north with red-hued contrails, altocumulus and 'chaotic sky' during this whole event.

On arriving home from the bike ride, about 2 mm rain had fallen.

Further thunder at 11:58 pm then 12:05 am, 12:11 am and 12:32 am. Periods of moderate rain after 11:45 pm with some very heavy rain just arrived around 12:37 am. Total stands at about 10 mm (12:45 am)
