I wouldn't call it a bust till about 10pm even then some areas further north are due some elevated storms I belive.. Then the south baths in the sun this weekend with the north a bit more cloudy and stormy everyone is at least getting a cut of a chance in the action lol!

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

130 photos taken this evening. Have attached the ones I consider decent enough to share. Apologies for some of the scratches and marks on the pictures; my camera body needs a damn good clean.  Th

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.

Can't really call it bust as there have been some storms in the areas suggested although the activity seems down on what was suggested.

Too many on here throwing the towel in already. Or is it reverse psychology? 

The MO warning was valid from 4pm and we're 1 hour and 20 mins into it. Give it a chance. ?

Yellow warning was from 11:00 and Amber later on 16:00 . Anyway can't be wrong here as none were forecast for here. ??

If I were to judge this event purely on rainfall it most certainly wouldn't be a bust, however if we judge it on the basis of thunder and lightning well...

I can't imagine the UK has seen much more then 200 lightning strikes compared to Saturday/Sundays theatrics when it was over 60,000.

Depends on how you define a bust and I think most people on here are following because of the storm potential. However today really wouldn't be out of place with respects to a typical unsettled summers day. Nothing to distinguish this event and place it in the folklore of other thunderstorm events.

And I don't see that changing... but as I said earlier, happy to be proved wrong.

Beeb weather saying it's "game over" for the Northwest & Northeast. Storms tracking up across the Midlands and Wales throughout the evening and then re-forming tomorrow afternoon across Ireland & Scotland.

National Rail Enquiries has posted this 

http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/service_disruptions/today.aspx

Severe weather affecting services across the Midlands until approximately 09:00 on Friday 1 June

The Met Office have issued a weather warning for the Midlands. Severe thunderstorms and torrential downpours are expected. This may lead to flooding in some places, and cause disruption to journeys.

As a result of this, speed restrictions have been imposed on the following routes:

  • Banbury - Oxford
  • Birmingham New Street - Bristol Temple Meads

 

Delays of up to 60 minutes and cancellations can be expected.

How many more weeks will ppl say this sort of stuff and nothing of any interest materialises?

Being serious, it’s relentless - at some point we need to actually see something... surely?

Anyway it’s far from a bust today but even if it doesn’t happen i’m used to the disappointment now so it doesn’t really bother me anymore ?

Well you would have to call this a bust given warnings emphasised not only the heavy rain, but also large hail along dangerous and frequent lightning - You cant have a Severe thunderstorm without Lighting......

Lol true... though the Meto are probably a lot more concerned about the impacts of rainfall.

Anyhow lets see what the band NE of Winchester does as it advances further west through the Hampshire storm shield.... will it be breached?

 Lots of sferics now about 100 miles away on the good old radio. 1 about every 10 seconds from a few different cells.
