I find an ironic observation that people who don't receive severe weather in their very own back yard are the ones who complain about unwarranted met office warnings...... The met office amber wa

Hi guys, First post here. Hope you enjoy. Here's the view in Brighton looking south east a moment ago. No processing/filtering on this image either.

I personally doubt it, I reckon Thursday we could stand a better chance

These storms coming off the continent are killing our sunshine, and by the time they move into western areas will contain little if any electrical activity anyway. East is best at the moment

Day 2 Convective Outlook

VALID 06:00 UTC Wed 30 May 2018 - 05:59 UTC Thu 31 May 2018

ISSUED 19:17 UTC Tue 29 May 2018

ISSUED BY: Chris

The remnants of Tuesday nights elevated convection will continue to drift westwards across much of southern and central Britain. However, the mid-level instability will be generally be gone and lapse rates remain weak so lightning is considered only a very slow risk.

The storms have decided moved substantially fast from Amsterdam and very close off the Norfolk coast?!

My track takes it into east anglia and southeast England by 10 or 11 this evening before pushing west northwest.

Not that close, it's taking forever compared to the speed it crossed Holland. Electrical activity not as intense as over the land.

Just to clarify that those North Sea storms will have much less of a northerly track by the time they reach shore - also despite being elevated they can’t (and won’t) go on forever regardless of how immune they are to the sea so we will see a weakening trend as they progress.

Dont want to be a party pooper but I’m a bit worried those in the North might be reading too much into them, although it would be wonderful if I was wrong.

Looking at the track of the comparatively tiny cells we currently have in the U.K. they are headed westwards, if not a little southerly too. However storms in France are headed on a northerly track so it depends which one wins out.

Best of luck to everyone but as much as the forecasts are quite general and have in recent days made a few miscalculations none of the ones I read say about monster overnight storms in the U.K., at least not for the North anyway ?

Yeah true, but there was a big jump considering the slow track over the past hours. Do you personally think it will make it far inland or die down?

How electrified it will be is uncertain but what I know is the rain will become much more organized once it pushes inland after 10 this evening I assure you that it will
