Moving off into the distance a little bit now - lightning is mad but the rain wasn’t anywhere near as torrential as the first one to be fair

The rumble and strobing is constant with occasional shotgun, longest, noisiest storm in years...and my partner is managing to sleep like a baby though this!!! How does he do it????

There is no let up here at all. Torrential rain now.

Some incredible lightning going on - but it seems like the storms have just gone to the east and nothing is coming up behind right now

Back-building down the M20 into SE London

The third cell if the night had far more in the way of cloud to cloud forks and booming thunder, rather than the constant slow grumbling thunder and stroke lightning earlier.

Constant lightning and deep high up rumbles to my south and west. No rain yet. Been like this for about an hour

We've had lightning mainly to the south of us for the past 1 to 2 hours, now it is becoming more widespread, surrounding us a bit more and the heavier rain has just started, sounding a bit more solid as I write, so I reckon there is hail with it. 

However not much thunder as yet, so that part must still be a way off but we are getting flashes every few seconds.

The last twenty minutes have seen a big increase in the amounts of thunder just down the road here in St Albans, with a couple of shotgun claps to go with it. Surprised you guys haven't heard more in Watford.

Lightning very impressive but I’m not under any now - looks like that’s my lot for a while but I’ve had my fair share haha

I've never heard rain like this (I can't see is I live in a flat with no outside light at the back) but I can tell you for certain the guttering has gone.

These shotgun strikes are seriously scary.

Wow just had the best thunderstorm I have ever seen in all my 48 years, 90 minutes of flashes literally every second or so. I will never complain about being storm starved ever again!!

WOW! What a fracking storm 😀

It's been a been a lonnnnnng time since July 2013 but the hills finally got one and yeah it was worth it!

Tried to take photos but failed jumping between windows to my south, west and then north so opted to take video, it was everywhere forking and so bloody good 😁

Will post vid and/or stills after uploading IF they are worth it *nods* so gutted to watch on Blitzo that all systems died out as soon as dawn broke but hey maybe and hopefully the sparks will fly over the next few days for us all 🤗
