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!

If this is guaranteed to hit the south-east big, I feel tempted to get in the car and hit the M25 south and then whatever A road takes me down into East Sussex/Kent.....I'm sceptical we're going to see any lightning west of London....

Might be about to head out to seaford to get into a nice spot.

I only chase from wherever I am now -normally at home

I used to chase in the car - to get back home and find the kids and wife say "oh an amazing storm we had ...."

sometimes staying put - you win some you lose some but in general you do OK and its much safer :)

Seems unlikely now unless nocturnal cooling can aid the mess in the western channel.

unlikely I think......the afternoon outputs seem to be more right than wrong......earlier I thought a line west of weymouth to swindon would be unlikely to see storms (rain yes)....I'l take a wild stab now and move that line at least 100 miles further east.....brighton to london......The western flank of the MCS is rain cooled and there's not enough instability along the north and western outflow boundaries.....some heavy rain is likely but that may be it............be nice to be proved wrong though as I missed out on friday night
