So we've got half hour before hell is unleashed on the Midlands!!

Time to nip to the local offie and get some bottled water and plain crisps to keep us going for a day or three!!!

Actually I just looked on radar and there does seem to be a line of shower build roughly along that line, although it's more Portsmouth then Southampton. Whether it produces anything other than some rain is another matter.

Pretty confident that this is an official bust here now. Do not have the energy or the bother to stay up late for the possibility of seeing a few flashes of lightning.:sorry:

As others have said though, hopefully Saturday will give us something instead. I hope!:closedeyes:

Is it possible if the main rain band was to drop 100 mile south, it would engage the warmer air and spark-up??

Just a thought ........

I doubt it, however there's a line of showers building about a few hundred miles south of the main stuff to check the theory out with.

Yes, looking very solid, moving quickly too. I wonder how long it has in it.

I think it's that trough mentioned on the esfex forecast, (or whatever that's called), it should move east slowly if so. Does look like a squall on rainfall radar.

Didn't think I was seeing things earlier, that also explains why it vanished so quick!!

That's quite a compact, narrow storm, putting out quite a lot of strikes per hour.. Meanwhile, the main swathe of rain has nearly cleared the Midlands, we've barely had any rain in central Leicester...

Wonder if that lot moving up further west  peps up in the latter of the night hours as it reaches the Midlands (3am - 5am) times??
