Tropical blobs of rain in Bexleyheath now. The atmosphere is about to go pop I think

So close, yet so far!

A small line of thunderstorms have sparked off just to the east of me across the far east of Greater London

That cell north of Thetford is exploding! I'm watching it grow from here. So well defined against a blue sky.

Lightening radar showing strikes going off west of Norwich, too far north damnit, clouds slowly building now.

Reached 36.9 at a met office wow station but may not be official in norwich

There's no Met Office station there, so it won't be official.  My suspicion for highest temperature would be Wattisham or Santon Downham.

Can see two cumulonimbus producing that storm from here, clearly against a slightly hazy sky - one fully-developed, the other one yet to level-out against the tropopause.

hopefully this is a slow process of everything going east so we all get a very welcome drink and some good storms.. Those storms in the channel still moving North.. The cloud here is not going east at all yet..

Not sure if it's a plane but I can definitely hear some rumbling in the distance.

Loving the northerly track it's taking, not long before some of us finally see some much needed rain!

Lightning maps showng plenty of strikes around Dereham and Swaffham, towards RAF Marham and down into the Brecks near Thetford.  I think there are actually two cells - visually and on radar.  My view from here reminds me of documentaries from Tornado Alley - heat, humidity and towering Cb anvils against a hazy blue sky.

Ooh, rapid darkening of skies to the S here, heard some rumbles of thunder and just seen a flash of lightning.

Maybe stations now beaten record. Hope one of them is official

You can see which are official by filtering the search on the WOW page.  Click "Filters" then de-select everything except "Official Observations"

The cloud seems to building east of here so skies are remaining fairly clear. The temperature sitting close to 34C yet again.

If I do that the only 'official' sites for the whole of Kent are on the coast, none at all inland. Stupid coverage.

Best bet for storm time in Far SE is 6-9pm looking at French imports.
