This is what Skellingthorpe near Lincoln looks like at the moment behind our house, what do you guys think of it?

For N England it appears that storm cells are moving SW to NE but that the storms are building from the north southwards. I am hoping this may bring storm development closer to home later.

I don't see any potential for any storms for us if anything a light shower but I'm even ruling that out. Tonight looks to be a dry night with temps around 10 - 13C The set up has been different today and has not panned out the way the charts predicted.

Looks good for those to the east of me. These were taken a few mins ago in Windsor looking eastwards.

Shower developing at Stoke On Trent, could this be what Lincolnshire needs to look out for?

I've never known a year as bad as this one for storms. Last year wasn't much better either.

Dependent on where you are in Derbyshire, the cell just gone up near Stoke may be of interest. Too far north for me, but looks to head towards Chesterfield. Nothing of note yet but could develop into something.

Last year was terrible, we just missed the storm in August by a few miles and only had a few rumbles and strikes, not had anything decent since 2015. I'm hoping we get this hot weather in August that'll spark something off or at the end of July

Actually pretty much spot on although the timing was out for the south east. The euro got it wrong on yesterdays run though.

Just stepped out of the office. The humidity is insane coinciding with far more agitated skies which seem to have numerous towers though as the sky has turned more hazy its hard to make out the detail

I'm thinking if that develops you could see it fringing Sheffield  then towards Yorkshire and the Humber North if it survives.

Yeah possibly, I need something like that to happen but near Nottingham so it can push in the same direction to Lincoln

Just don't get how the southern areas are not capitalising on this... I guess it's the cap still - but I've never seen reluctant convection on the scale that I've been seeing over the last few months.

It really is something else. Storms just can't get going at all

 I was thinking the same, whats going on , all seems too common over the past couple of years or so, it does seem harder to generate  widespread thundery activity, than it did back in the eighties ,   or so it seems

I always remember forcasts saying,   '''thundery activity will become more widespread later'' , seemed a common saying when thunder was predicted,  you know it would happen with such words , and it nearly always did,   now it nearly always fails   :nea:

Anyone around the Whitby area should get quite a storm soon as that impressive cell over Northallerton is heading that way.

surprised how little talk there is on the cells heading for cambridge. in hindsight, setting up there at the start of the day would've been a great call

I think I am at the breeding grounds of these convective towers, some really nice convection.

That could be a watch over Matlock, Bake well, Clay Cross and a direct for Chesterfield from the looks of it.
