Holy crap not bad eh ? Am well chuffed with this

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.

    I can see the gap opening up for Bristol storm shield is up and ready!

    Became apparent quite early on mate.  Happens a lot of times in recent years.

    Hopefully something can "close" that gap soon.

    Hot off the press from the family, RNAS Culdrose helicopter has been dispatched to Coverack, the caravan made it out of the flood okay but the force of the water moved a car-wheel from 3-other caravans away right under it. Sirens are blaring all the time and they had to use buckets for a short while as the hail was so intense it blocked them closing the skylight fully.

    Yikes! Hope your family, and indeed everyone else, are OK!

    I am finding these storms difficult to follow - but for us I think we should be keeping an eye on what's currently over Exeter.

    Thank you . I'll go and look that  up and what it means . But grateful for your reply . 

    It's a measure of how much heat and moisture is in the air.

    It's not very intense and moving very slowly but seems to be gradually reaching the new forest. 

    Seems to be heading towards you and away from Bournemouth now. 

    Yes second thoughts it is suddenly looking very ominous just to my south, think I'll stay put!

    They're all okay, aside from field-flooding and minimal damage with debris in the shallow flood-water they're up the hill a 20-min walk away from Coverack so haven't gotten the full impact of the storm.

    Screen shot from the latest BBC forecast at 3am, looks like more organised storms will head Eastwards

    Watch to the south and east of the IOW over the next 30mins. Will start to show signs of life

    And 25 minutes later as if by magic some fresh strikes to the east of the IOW :bomb:

    I can see this Bournemouth/coastal cell being purely rain by the time it gets to Reading. 

    Well there could be some surprise inland intensification and uplifting, but I reckon you're right. Fizzling out instead of intensifying seems to be the trend.

    It feels ominous, though less humid than earlier and outside looks potentially promising but if there is any, it will be few and far between as my current guess, hopefully wrong though.

    Woop Woop

    Sky around here is looking angry!!!! Wind has even dropped weirdly.. Didn't expect that with a low so close.

    Sferics seem to be picking up now we have more landfall. That stuff out the SW will be very interesting when it hits land. I expect quite a lot of build when it happens!

    Bring on midnight!  All looking so good still. (Apart from people moaning that its all died back! --- Its pretty much expected.)

     

    Seem to be getting some midlevel convection now.
