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

I can still see distant lightning from that multicell cluster near bournemouth to pompey.....and my eyes are drawn to that cluster of showers that have formed over south wiltshire, can they tap into enough energy and become electrified?

Seriously impressed with these storms! The one heading to Bournemouth looks particularly notable. Shame I'm missing this but I enjoy reading the reports regardless :)

If the cell around Leicester can fire back up maybe we could be in for a surprise here in the NE later (I'm in Hull).

Really hope so, I'm in Middlesbrough. But I know Lincolnshire and Midlands can spark up some cracking storms

Not sure if it's just me but it seems to lose intensity very quickly once it goes inland off the south coast?

Looks like it's making a good track towards where I am in Reading right now, looking promising if it keeps going like it is.

Hi, am in Southern derby at the moment, had 2 very large flashes about an hour ago quite a distance between them and also a long pause between flash and thunder, then rain chucked it down and now nothing... anyone in the vicinity or close by who knows if we are going to get any more? Much as storms can scare me a little at night I do actually feel deflated that that was all we got! (Nothing that new here though hasn' been a decent thunderstorm here for a few years!)

Not letting up here in Pagham this is just insane although now it feeling a lot cooler I guessing these storms doing as they say on the tin and clearing the air in a big way

Yeah I've noticed that as well, looks like it's just the channel area and the South Coast getting all the main action tonight unless something peps up in the midlands
