Oh yea, I see what you mean now. I'm staying put right now though. The skies from the south east to the north east are getting darker and darker. Looking very good at the moment.

The Dunkirk web cam about an hour ago showed the storm head development just off shore over the Channel. Looks like an explosive development that one on the cloud sat.
