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!!

Some really angry sounding rumbles and distant flashes to the NNE here in southampton.

Stay safe all.

Just having a smoke and saw a flash to my NW .. Rumblings proceeding. :D

leading edge of cold front now roughly in a line north to south glasgow through merseyside through mid-wales into exeter/plymouth, so initiation east of that line is in line with modelling....could use a bit more initiation here on the M4 corridor though :wink:

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.  

I'm in Aylesbury further north of you and I thought we were all in the firing line? It's not meant to intensify more until the early hours? Still plenty of time no? The BBC forecast at 10 showed very heavy showers all over our area!

Looking at radar nothing seems to be popping up north of the thames estuary, not even a shower, I cannot see the sky so I cannot comment on the instability but cloud has arrived and isnt even producing a drop of rain. Id love a night time storm but I dont think it will happen.

hooking round to the south?

no, definitely no hook there, ppn is fading on the southern flank of that particular cluster of cells..........speaking of which isolated heavy showers are breaking out along the cold front in west somerset/east devon as well as the ones already mentioned over Merseyside

Storm is almost stationary about 5 miles to my south east with constant rumbles, the lightning is more impressive than the thunder from here, but the soundwaves marked on Lightning Maps is spot on!
