Lol. I know what you mean. I used to be terrified of storms when I was younger. Now I find them fascinating and it's been very interesting learning more about them, though that being said, I know the chances are really low, but I always get paranoid that lightning will strike my house when there is a storm. Silly thing to worry about I know but it is what it is!

Me too me too!! Or I will lose internet and not be able to track it!

Well this is perfect so far. Sitting in the garden having a beer and watching the light show. No rain and only a couple of distant rumbles of thunder but my word, lightning every few seconds.

Looks like the BBC forecst for further west of rain with the odd rumble is correct. Does look like the real action is for the Sussex/Kent coastal areas.

A look at the 12z ECM CAPE for midnight shows why the lightning seems to be staying mostly over the East English Channel and pushing NNE toward the areas to east of IoW, this is where the instability is

This lot is moving incredibly slowly. Wondering if it'll be dead if it ever gets here at all.
