Convective/Storm Discussion Thread - 8th July onwards

Uh... The cloud bases have suddenly started moving rapidly to the west over here. Strong inflow channel...?

Possible tornadic signature to cell now just north of Wimborne Minster but given elevated storm bases unlikely to be much at the surface. Probably.

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.

Could this look to be the main event that the midlands need to look out for rather than the one from earlier?

The one from earlier, it's still going in bits and pieces, seems to have split in three but still producing thunder.

It's moving much more to the East than it was earlier, the band from Brighton split across London, Essex and the far reaches of Kent now. Seems a lot weaker at the tail end, the end that resides towards Dorset way. Still some good Lightning coming in bits and pieces.

Still going I thought this sort of thing only happens in films in America it's the best I've ever seen and it's absolutely pouring down.

easyJet A320 just landed about 20-30 minutes ago into Gatwick and recommended to the others to delay the approach. Can imagine they was being thrown all over the place if they said that.

Where can you find this out?

Cell from near Wimborne did pass not far to west of here, but most of the lightning was obscured by a possible wall cloud. Result was like when someone has a TV showing a fast-paced action movie next door at night and the curtains are drawn.

Signing off for the night. A decent event but only half what 2014 managed on each of its two occasions. Clearly though I was within just 20 miles of a biblical deluge and absurd amounts of overhead lightning :shok:

Just been woken up as well as probably millions of other people in the capital. The thunder in this thing is incredibly loud!

A few hours ago you couldn't hear a thing from these strikes yet now it is booming like few other storms I've ever seen. Any reason why?

It's forecast to connect with the surface. Most of the time it's been elevated
