The small cell in the channel is an important indicator as to what is going on one, given its cloudy and formed over the sea its clearly not surface based and emanating from the mid-level plume. If further cells fire here parts of Kent could be a disaster zone by the end of the day.

yes there seems to be some activity on the northern flanks now crossing from Aylesbury - luton - Braintree.

Very interesting indeed!

Quite a bit of thunder here near Heathrow with moderate rain and skies going very dark.

The lightning from that mass of rain over the SE is very erratic and sporadic,unless the lightning maps are gone mad.

Thunder heard but must be very elevated as its relatively quiet for how close the strikes were. Real deep booms though, could almost feel the vibrations

The main storm seems to be going more north then that other heavy rain/storm. 

All heading for Wales.

There’s been thunder much more recently than Blitzortung would suggest. 99% sure I heard a rumble just a few minutes ago. And again just now - but then it is bin day too....nope! Floor rattled, definitely thunder

looking at a sat 24, there is a cloud mass now in the SE that is much denser~ probably very high towering cloud 
keep an eye on it,. could be the beginning of something much much bigger

Which direction is this precipitation heading in? Will it make it to the Midlands?

To me it does look slightly more north than predicted  i would expect the south midlands to perhaps catch the northerly edge

Not sure if this has been mentioned but that looks like a homegrown MCS in the London region.

Still worth watching though. It was the same on saturday but I still got to see distant lightening around 3am. Pretty cool.

Thunder has been rumbling on here for about 2-3 hours. Have had some fabulous CG strikes as well, with multiple hits at the same point. Shows no signs of stopping any time soon.

Every few minutes or so, seems to be more frequent for a while and then die down a bit, before picking up again.

It's more like thundery rain, and yes the precipitation is much further north than forecast and subsequently a wet afternoon on the cards parts north west of London although probably not thundery, the best dynamics are still in the south east so probably only thunderstorms here in a line roughly Colchester to Weymouth.
