Yep west/central southern england has had quite a few good-un's this year :) had a fantastic storm off that eastern cell here today :)

Yeah it did, then curved off to the East!

Exactly what I was hoping to look at! I hate to moan but being at Sixth Form I'm right next to Chew Valley Lake where my arrow points at, oh my.

Anyway looking at Sat24, if we can have a clearing by 5pm, which seems possible could be in for another treat!

Sunny again just west of Salisbury so you never know!  Insanely sticky again is like being in the rainforest!

the pics above are looking south/south east towards Salisbury...this storm is about 10-15 miles away with plenty of deep booming rumbles, but it is moving quickly to the NW

Not holding my breath for anything thundery here today but still time I'd be more shocked to see lightning and hear thunder here than i was seeing 6 time world snooker champion Steve Davis djing at a rave i went to a few weeks back.
