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

Ok, I guess we wait and see. Hoping for the best. Looks like it's barley moving though.

Does sort of look like its spreading out a little, though must say on the radar it looks very impressive, not sure if I've seen anything like this before. It just needs that nudge

Totally expecting nothing here , as usuall in the storm starved main part of the north west, 

no way those storms in the midlands will get up to this part , they will fizzle to drizzle , or just move into north wales , history tends to repeat

I am using reverse psychology   . but deep down I know no thunderstorm for here, my only way is to drive down the M6 now , and intercept , but thats not possible atm

Tomorrow could  be interesting for Southern counties. Lot's of convergence zones showing up!

Yes tomorrow evening looks very interesting for us in the South, I've had two distant storms so far this BH weekend, maybe third time lucky?

Also interesting to note some lightning starting to appear in the channel and groups of heavy showers quickly popping up over Northern France so perhaps a surprise in store this evening.

Hoping the ones away to my NW will do a bit of back building and come to Oxford for round two, last night was too fast and quiet, although the flashes were amazing.

Am well South of the large collection of anvils that must be the Rugby cells/line and I must say it looks very impressive in the sunlight, cells going up very quickly indeed, very spectacular, shame it wasn't at night

At the moment a line just north of London heading nw into the W midlands begins to develop  - some weak showers early this afternoon blossomed into significantly storms as they headed nw. No reason to believe that this won’t happen again this evening. Not sure what will happen south of this as cloud amounts/height currently not notable.

My best bet to ensure storms is to lay out two entire Jacob's fleeces on the patio in order to sort carefully into white and brown piles in the sunshine. This is what I will do now ?
