I think anywhere from Portsmouth to London on a line and eastwards is going to have a very fun night

(if you like storms that is !)

Hi there and welcome. Interesting question you raised and I must admit I've never given the scenario much thought until now. If I were to make an educated guess I would say every bit of heat counts when building storms but also remember there are a lot of storms that develop elsewhere and some travel over london. Does the added heat from a busy city help? I would have to say it cant hurt. I'd be interested to hear other peoples thoughts on this who may have a better insight in such things than myself.

Thanks!

For once I may be well located, fingers crossed a soaking seems inevitable.

Skies have finally cleared here. Can see some nice bubbly convection off to the south. Starting to get excited. This reminds me of last year in a way.

UPDATE 18:43 UTC Current highly-sheared thunderstorms across the English Channel continue to move NE-wards. It then seems likely the flow will back a little through the evening, with a new round of thunderstorms expected to grow into an MCS late evening into the early hours and affect a more wider area, potentially followed by another area of showery rain (with perhaps less lightning activity due to exhaustion of instability by preceding storm clusters) late in the night into Thursday morning. Have extended SLGT farther W to cater for backing flow later this evening (although still some inevitable uncertainty as to true westward extent of thunderstorms). MDT left untouched at this update, although some guidance would suggest a slight westward shift/extension may be required.

I do like their updates, as opposed to Estfoex which produces a forecast and leaves it no matter if there are dramatic changes.

do you think im too far north to get any of the good action?

I think we're well placed. At the very least there will be a good display out to sea after dark.

I was wondering the same, but watching that cell to the SW of Southampton it may well have us in its sights!
