That mass on the radar looks evil going up through reading! I'm still near cirencester waiting to see if storms kick off to my south. This current system may well take all the mid level juice prog'd for my area, but I'll keep watching!

Sitting in my studio I'm just getting this fantastic panorama of it all, one of the most enjoyable I've seen in this town, was not expecting that at all.

Any ideas where this trough is?

Nowhere to be seen yet reaching the south coast by 0100 then I’d expect it to go boom. :bomb::D

Not heard anymore thunder since that last rumble.

Think I am going to have to just spend the night looking out for distant heat lightning now for potential arriving storms.

Got a horrible feeling that thats our chance gone for the period now though.:sorry:

Shaping up quite nicely to the South. I just hope I don't have to mind the gap!?

The channel is full of fuel right now and forming a distinct trough of thunderstorms moving due north,this i think is where the main action is coming from besides that nice thunderstorm NW of london.
