    Sat 24 is amazing looking at those storms over France. Incredible how explosive the storm development is.

    Maybe a small glimmer of hope for southern counties later on tonight?

    That was amazing. The closest to lightning i've ever been....this was Warlingham area (Just oustide Croydon)...    

    What a night it was, one of the best storms I have ever seen, maybe even better than July 3rd 2015! I some many great pictures on here today, so I thought I would share some of mine.

    There have been some suggestions that in the past 10 years (or more) the broad synoptic scale pattern has shifted a little further east, so in general the areas that used to experience plume breakdowns (the phasing of upper troughs interacting with the warm, moist low-level air masses) has shifted more to central and eastern Europe - with an increase in supercell activity in western Russia in recent years, for example - though this may be due to increased awareness through social media etc.

    Thank you! That would go someway to explaining things. If true, I wonder what can cause such things to shift?

    Europe certainly get their fair share. Currently most of europe is lit up like a christmas tree, while over in the uk...(crickets).

    The heat has been an interesting one for sure.For many days leading up to, Friday was supposed to be the 'drain away'of heat day.Forecast high was 27c.It hit 30c at Heathrow...

    And ever since temperatures have been two or three degrees higher than predicted values in the SE,on what at one time last week was supposed to be a 22c maximum weekend!(looking at a high of 29c today I would imagine)

    Agreed. On friday evening there was supposed to be a cold front moving south. It never arrived and the temperatures have been no cooler this weekend then they have been in the week. :angry:

    Looks like it, quite a bit further west than predicted too. There trajectory takes them through the Peak District, and there was me thinking I was way too far north today! Let's hope its the start of something though.

    Will they electrify though?

    i was expecting them to be around Lincolnshire from now onwards,funny the weather isn't it

    just looking at the trajectory like you say,they may push just south of here,we will see

    Here in Cambridge the wind is starting to get up and this cloud was developing nearby... Being a complete novice no idea if it's a cell or not but it looked like it was growing....

    If I am honest I don't expect they will. It all looks a bit messy. Then again, who knows? As you say, weather is a funny thing. I remember a few years ago after a day like today being woken up out of nowhere by a thunderstorm in the middle of the night, and yet they were only expected to occur in the far SE.

    Shower near Stafford should hit Belper, that is if it doesn't die out. I don't expect it to be thundery but just a decent dose of rain would be nice.

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
