My piece de resistance: (drumroll please...)  

I've just been going through my phones photos from yesterday. Apart from the two oversized bras on next door's washing, this popped up: Finally got one!!

From what I understand, the current isolated storm cells have developed on a convergence wave tied into the circulation of the depression in Biscay. This "wave" will rotate and traverse slo

Western side of Salisbury where I am appeared to get a direct hit from the south east cell of that band 15 minutes ago with very frequent lightning overhead and some incredibly loud thunder :D
I got a video of it approaching but i think it contains me swearing at the end before it came overhead and I went inside!! If it's any good (ie can see the lightning) and I can upload it? - admin whats the rules on uploading a video with accidental swearing (twice near end) in video audio? haha 
Also had my neighborhood robin sat in the tree singing his heart out and then next to me eating all the while the storm was approaching hope i got it in the video too

Either way i am very happy right now a good satisfying dose of storm :D hope others get their chances too!!
And the sun is trying to come out now so back to my gardening!
But sounds like after it passed overhead it's slowed in activity to the north of Salisbury? hasn't sounded anywhere near as frequent....

why wasnt there warnings out for down south?  sites have warnings for north/north west rain but nothing for down our way

I'll take that as a good sign for MBY. After a mostly clear, hazy morning, there's plenty of Ac Cas over Manchester now.

Wow! Yes it was VERY intense passing over Malvern, the rain's easing off now. Second most intense storm we've seen since living here the past 8 yrs.

About to get hit by he main bulk of the  rain, and have had a couple of distant rumbles, one just closer now... very dark... but not then most active storm right now... maybe this is what will now grow this afternoon and hit the NW... 

Edit - Looks like we are in for a direct hit, some close strikes to the edge of town now on the live lightening page... netweather radar shows this coming over head.... sweet

Well that was fun. Only a few really close strikes but as some have said, they were predominantly intra cloud. Some good thunder and quite heavy rain at times. Clearing up again now and can see the sunshine returning so hopefully something again later. More importantly - first thunderstorm here since May 27th!
