Fantastic bank holiday Monday. 

Now for a beer in the garden

Perhaps it was from City and went directly West? Either way it was odd. 

And now a Korean Airlines at less than 4000 ft over Kensal Green 8 miles from LHR.

I don't think that QAR flies from London City Airport. Must have been a cargo flight out of LHR. After all, they have to import from all over the place now.

 

On the weather front, the thunder has disappeared to the north, but it's still humid even though the skies have cleared.

Don’t think so. French storms are moving north very quickly!

Meh. Surely some of it sits above the boundary? Or does that not work?

That’s in another country, let’s see if they make it past the English Channel first!

The East Ham Storm was truly impressive.

Looking back at the NW Radar, the storm developed out of nothing to the east of Romford and Hornchurch at 6.15pm and rapidly developed more or less in situ with the heaviest rain and hail (though little thunder and lightning) over East Ham at 6.45pm. 

Last night, the storm developed just to the north (over Ilford and Walthamstow) but that moved away NNW to join the chain of storms from London moving NW through Birmingham.

Tonight's storm brought a wild 15-20 minutes of hail and intense rain (I've no measuring equipment but the rain rate would have been impressive) before the whole thing started to move WSW toward central and SW London. A hang-back of cloud has remained but the humidity has eased fractionally.

It's interesting to see the area to the NE of London being a formation area for storms two days in a row. I wonder why ? It's a little way from the Thames Estuary and there's not much high ground so I don't know why storms should be forming here.

Not so sure, looks like a very active trough to me, expect it  to be high based, why it's moving against the wind. May be wrong though, looks like we will find out in a few hours either way.

That were my thoughts, on satellite there seems to be the easterly winds (low level) and more northerly ones (higher level) which the storms appear to be following.

Would love a big unexpected import!

Not so bad when there’s only 25 miles of water to cross!

It's getting windy from the south here now,  wondering what the wind speed on the gust front is.

Same here—the wind has slowly increased over the past hour or so.

There's a weird alarm going off I haven't heard before, hope nothing has happened in the channel.

I'm in bed with the window open. I feel like I can hear very distant rumbling.
