Is the majority elevated, lightning looks a little quiet on the radar, but activity looks to be increasing than it has been most of the day

I went outside and put some recycling in the bin and it felt cooler in Warminster and low cloud and no clouds in the sky what dad said to me it might be a gap between the two warm plumes.

Not storms though. And even if they forecast storms I doubt I would believe it

Could have potential, plenty cape and sunshine to start of

Slightly off topic but have to ask what happened to William grimsley? He seemed mad on storms from what I remember then the next thing he’s vanished into thin air unless he got struck or something

Evening @SarahWxm 😊

There is still hope I suppose, as it looks like things have kicked off again north of Oxford... Let’s see what happens. 🌩️😊

I think he ran out of weather forums to be booted off from, unless he's masquerading as one of the new members.............Still, one can't question his passion &  love of severe weather, remarkable!

I used to enjoy reading his posts. Anyway just went up the big hill behind my house as it looks right over Worcester way and saw a few distant flashes, hope it makes it this far

yes....Frankley Beeches  many a good view from there

Wish we had gone for the revolving floor option on our last flat refurb.....would be great looking to the South now

might just catch a flash if they last a bit longer

Edit- I think your right bluenose....looks to be dying

Went to a pub locally to see a friend at Lechlade, severe rain on the way and a few flashes, we had supper and then decided to chase for an hour or two, ended up going to Stow on The World and then back towards Northleach, so much lightning that didn't show on lightning maps, torrential rain but very few forked lightning, it mostly seemed to be cloud to cloud, the cell we were in/following seemed to drift Chelt/Gloucester way and having just arrived back home we could still see it flashing away to the North of us, I emptied the rain gauge at 4pm here and currently it is at 36mm.

There seemed to be no real organization to the storm, with flashes here there and everywhere and then seemed to die and a fresh lightshow would start in a different direction, not easy this chasing lark and driving conditions were interesting!

 Still hearing quite a lot of sferics on the Radio. Blitzortung probably vastly under playing it.

Had a short sharp shower about 10 mins ago. Just seen a flash of lightning and faint rumble of thunder.
