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.

The Channel, along with the increasing instability over Southern U.K., is really getting the gears of the thunderstorms turning in some places. (Especially the ones over the London area)! ⚙️

Is anything else likely to head towards the W country? 

The direction of sferics looks promising along the S coast but always seems to die of death by the time it gets here ? I also think steering flow is forecast to change as the night progresses to a more N/NE?

I feel your frustration mate, certainly a better chance of seeing these big storms down South, it makes perfect sense though with the proximity to the continent.                                                             

The problem i think with being in such a central location is that all the action is either way further south, too far east over the hotspot of South Lincs, or in recent years, way to far north! Our time will come eventually and when we do finally see a decent night time storm it will be worth the wait. Well any storm for that matter, night time or not! 

Anyway, can any of our resident chasers report in? where are you!? 

 

 

 

 

 

Redford and I don't know if they can. I don't think I'm going to see a storm at all in the coming days.

Don't think that will head this way but that storm over reading is producing strikes!
