Wow. Storms from 3 different directions and a line passing right over with thunder that made the ground vibrate. Now reinvigorating again, and another cell to my east with constant strobing - looks very active.

wow what a storm. some of the heaviest rain I have ever seen.

within the space of a minute went from a small shower to torrential downpour including hail.

The garden light looked like it was shining into fog. i couldn't even see the bottom of the garden !

Just got back from the Pub here at 2am and it's still clear skies with the Moon out, but the Midlands is looking lively.

Love how it all faded away to my south only to all kick off about 40 miles North again.....frustrating this storm malarkey.

Maybe something tomorrow morning here as the AROME model seemed to do well tonight....

If sferics keep at this activity it might be worth me heading out in the garden at 3am before sunrise to catch a few anvil-head streamers.

so this has just popped up in the Channel, wouldn’t be surprised to see a few thundery showers by dawn( as per some models) nowhere near what we have had tonight but there’s he chance.

Ah OK - apologies for the bad assumption!

Everything crossed for the M60 clipper 🤞

No apologies needed, the mobile view of this forum is to blame as it hides the user's locations.

I really hope I can stay awake.  Setting an alarm would not go down well!

Some strong sferics on the old radio now and very frequent as well. Gaining in power over time as they get closer.

My apps just got triggered with a strike within 10 miles but not picked up on Blitzortung. Surely not must be a false return.

This ties in for me with a still very warm sector of air up from brighton NWwards. I think this could be the missing piece of the jigsaw

Are we the only people who missed out completely in the south?

The ingredients are all there and literally storms everywhere else. It just isn’t making sense.

Still raining. Really nothing to write home about from what I’ve seen and I’ve been driving about all over the place.

Storms too quick, too random and too elevated.

Maybe there's s market for our marvellous 'storm shield' ☹
