Very distant thunder rumblings currently heard from Farrington Gurney BS39......looking at the radar we could be "in the gap" between cells. Can see distant towers but being covered by lower cloud over me. Wind springing up.
7 day forecast for my postcode shows torrential rain in the early hours tomorrow but no electrification. Time will tell.

Edit: thunder now getting closer!

Have a great vantage point currently on top of Chelwood hills, a nice bright purple flash as I speak!

A brief downpour with huge drops and a few close flashes/rumbles over Warminster but it seems to be intensifying as it heads away - now almost continuous thunder away to the N/NW, very messy sky too with low cloud so hard to make out the elevated storm cloud. I would expect this to be quite a storm system as it heads towards Bath/Bristol and further West.

Seems the plume got going about 25 miles inland in this part of the region as opposed to on the coast which is what I thought would happen when I posted this morning.

Some AcCas here has given way to some precipitation. Amazing sunset too.

That MetO forecast is amazing!!!!

I wouldn't hold your breath 

There's some stuff in the channel we will have to see if that electrifies after sunset which is in about 20 minutes

See that first ledge? I walk all the way around that, in to the bay the other side, then around to the second ledge - great fishing around there.

Probably take a look one day, always enjoy finding new places in the area

Heading Bournemouth clifftop for a poke About.

I can see the French storm from my apartment - amazing it’s a hundred plus mile away! 

Most of what I see from the clifftop in Bmth is the anvils from the storms in France over a hundred miles away.

According to the meto forecast radar, the mass of moisture coming off the channel should intensify and develop some thunderstorms with it. So an important hour or two coming up

Wow - here we go - trees and shrubs being blown all over the place. Rain  starting with a vengeance. Sky very dark - but we are on the periphery of the electrical activity me thinks as no visible lightning yest and thunder clearly some miles away although frequent.

It was always going to be messy convection - was hoping the storms would fire first, but I’ve watched cells collapsing for a couple of hours now.

Holding out for something to kick this all into gear before 10pm... 🤞

That would be good, plenty of old anvil gubbins heading up from the South now, but you never know.
