Popped out with the camera after finishing work yesterday at 5:45pm. Got onto the storm which passed through Malton when it was near Sledmere in the Yorkshire Wolds. Visually, it appeared supercellula

A few shots of the storm tonight using iLightningCam app.

BIG storm went over here earlier, only just got power back on. Trees down and roads flooded in the Malton area, never seen anything quite like it, absolute carnage. Unfortunately my weather stati

Temperature has dropped to 25 and it's getting more difficult to see any blue patches of sky. Humidity is off the scale really and we've had a couple of light showers. I've just done a medium wave crackle test and it was negative, there's hardly any breeze to speak of so I reckon that if it happens at all it's going to be a few hours away. We're also in something of a rain shadow here, the Clwydian Hills soak up much of it before it can get here.

I have absolutely nothing to back this up, but I've just got a nagging feeling Bournemouth is well positioned.  I've actually got relatively high hopes of getting a storm early morning tomorrow.

Anyhow - good luck to all, wherever you are.

Just convective rain here unless the orographic lift from the Pennines sets anything off, at least behind this mess is clear skies again so it'll only take 2 hours for this lot to clear east.

Hi Guys this is my first post on here :) Also just started raining here in Wrexham and the humidity has gone through the roof and it feels tropical here. No thunder/lightning here yet.

Currently working in Llay, the rain has stopped here. Fingers crossed for something after 5 when I get home.

In Barnsley looks like a few showers coming up our way now, no lightning getting detected yet will keep you informed.

It's just murk, nothing interesting so far.  Convective blanket of sun blocking cloud widening sadly.

Is it just me or are things looking more promising south of the main risk area. All that cloud/rain can't be good for insolation; though, there's still the problem of finding a trigger.

And, of course, so you should be. The forecast for action *starts* at 6pm .... and ends around 3am tomorrow.

Sun / cloud mix here but incredibly stuffy. Skies look to be darkening to the south beyond emley moor transmitter.

Were the storms in SW Scotland forecast, not seen much mention on here.

There is some definite convection going on around Glossop, some interesting structures to my South (towards Whaley/Buxton) and West (Manchester). Think if the caps going to break it will be between 17z and 19z
