Distant but regular rumbles now, got to say I'm not convinced that it will hop the channel into the SE. Seems to be running out of steam. Fingers crossed though, some lovely clouds.

Lovely looking storm this afternoon! 

Here's the one that didn't get away. Taken at Crawley, West Sussex.

All bark but no bite down here on the south coast!

It'll be interesting to see if the decaying cells manage to spark something else off ahead of the line. We had  a good few hours of sunshine here and its still feeling muggy.

That's what I'm thinking or lining up with those already existing cells over SW London!

From what I can see that line of showers (squall line?) is still putting up AC towers as it comes closer. I've limited knowledge on the subject but I can only assume that is a good sign!

Exactly as forecasted then ?

Ok there has been a little thunder about but where have the showers been across most of cs England. ...oh I know in Holland and Belgum lol ! We may have some rain over night but that's all it will be , hope I'm wrong :-)

Take a look at sat24.com The show a nice clearance before the channel muck and a few clouds popping up nicely. Tops starting to come into sight now. They look quite impressive. i suspect they will pass to the west of me however i have a great view facing west. 

So, on the way home I came out the south side of the blackwall tunnel and low and behold I could see those cloud tops you were talking about.  Watched the muck over london getting further and further away in the rear view mirror which was a good feeling having been stuck under it all day.

Radar now showing a wide band of cells leaving france which at the moment (I say with caution) is headed this way. Electrical activity from this band has ceased a short time ago but could it pick up some warm, moist air from the channel and re-energise? Could it be I actually get my evening storm? Lets see...

Radar now showing some a massive band of cells leaving france which is pretty wide. Electrical activity from this band has ceased a short time ago but could it pick up some warm, moist air from the channel and re-energise? Could it be I actually get my evening storm? Lets see...

They just fizzled to nothing. Similar thing passing now but lets just see!

Yeah, that squall line leaving france is looking more and more promising. Kent and SE London could still see some action yet.
