I've not seen a warning like this!!

http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings/#?tab=warnings&regionName=ee&fcTime=1473980400

An area of torrential, thundery rain is expected to develop across the region during early Friday morning bringing the potential for exceptionally large amounts of rain within a few hours. Frequent lightning and hail may be additional hazards. Whilst there remains some uncertainty about developments and areas affected, there could be major disruption. Please be prepared for the potential for very severe weather conditions bringing flash flooding and disruption to transport.

A cold front approaching moist, unstable air is expected to generate a line of exceptionally heavy, thundery rain. Possible sustained hourly rates of more than 30 mm could result in totals of more than 100 mm in 3-4 hours. Particularly in urban areas, this could lead to flooding of properties and businesses and major disruption to transport.

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

Wew, I'm off to bed with the windows and curtains open in the hope of any thundery activity waking me up. 

 

I do hark back to the storms o  the 1980' - mid 90's.  They were the best in this corner of the UK.

Well,maybe the motorway theory someone cited earlier has some credibility. An earlier M4 line,no one hugging the M25

Seems to be forming along the North Downs escarpment from Farnham to Swanley (NW Kent) - orographic lift?

Sounds like a red warning rather than amber but I guess it would be red only if they could pinpoint specific areas. Looks like any activity for the Midlands is out now

Unsure wether to go all-night with this as for the NW it's fairly borderline in terms of how far west the cold-front initiates convection. It's not until around 4am that things are forecast to get going across the north and midlands.

Goodluck all. I had my stonker a couple nights ago up here in West Yorkshire.

I'll be radar watching for a few hours hoping it explodes for you guys who are storm starved.

It does look like things are starting to destabilise in between those two areas of showers, the one in the channel, and the one East of Winchester. Development just to my West.

Im going to call it and say im too far north now unless some serious forcing comes into play. I saw some incredible storms earlier, although I didn't get a drop of rain the structure and the cloudscapes where insane. It was the first time I have ever seen mamatus and I watched multiple updrafts become anvils.
