My contribution to this evening.

What a fantastic night we had in central southern England, and many other places too! I've never seen storms of that intensity or frequency in April before! Anyway I thought I would share so

Walking back from the shop earlier this evening and big (positive?) CG came out of the back of the cloud/blue right down 100-200m in front of me. MASSIVE thunderclap - loudest I've heard for many years. 

Can't believe BFTE2 was only a few weeks ago!

Now got the daft local forecast. Dry with clear spells but with a severe weather warning for rain. Makes it a total nonsense.

I wonder if those storms in the South can survive the land and get here.

Are you going to go chasing or staying put?

MetOffice just done some covering.  Severe weather warning out in force for rain between Sat 20:30 and Sun 6:00

 

Further details

Scattered thunderstorms will move northeast across much of southern, central and eastern England overnight. Whilst some places will miss these storms and remain dry, where they do occur some heavy rain and frequent lightning is likely. 15-20 mm of rain may fall in a short space of time . Hail and gusty winds are also possible very locally. The storms will clear from the west overnight.

I am already out, sitting alongside the M1 at J28. My plan was to get close to a major road so I have a choice whether to go north, south or back home.

Looking increasingly promising for those ahead of the band of heavy rain and frequent lightning across Gloucester and Wiltshire. Lightning activity should be enhanced within the next few hours through the process of nocturnal cooling, which in effect steepens lapse rates.

Must be tempting to go south west to intercept the storms Birmingham Bristol. way

Pitch black storm passed overhead lots of lightning and loud bangs :)

Is that going to hit East Sussex/Kent in a few hours?

I'm heading out now.  Gonna plant myself somewhere east of Ashton under lyme.  I didn't get chance to figure out where the best place to head was and have no expert knowledge

Really needs to get going up here. Met office have been blind to the storms in the south. If they get to the midlands, then Estofex had the best forecast!
