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

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.

That storm isn't moving South. Running the animation through, it just looks like new updrafts being produced in different places. They are strong updrafts too!

Currently watching the lightning from the storm over Gt Missenden where I used to live from 80 miles away and my son driving down the A303 rang to say he could see it in his rear view mirror and he is at least 120 miles away.

The storm is back building quicker than it is moving north

I didn't think it was. What's that stuff in ketting that looks like it's intensifying.

As I look out I have clear skies above me, I can see the Moon and another planet all above a storm with frequent lightning about 60 miles away! 

We were watching that same storm from Bexleyheath.  I've never seen a storm from a distant cloud structure like that with clear skies directly above us.  Just a shame it wasn't moving towards us!

I've been in an ideal position to see the backbuilding on the cell and the structure and speed of development has really been impressive. 

Though I'm still taking photos the lightning has all but stopped in the last five minutes. Almost like someone has turned off a switch.

Jeez its just the weather mate, you win some you lose some...

Indeed you do,  but with thunder storms and North West England  you never win some , it always loose,  never mind , it all went  as I predicted a pat on the back for me 

BBC said thunderstorms, for this area,  I said ..not a chance , because  that how it pans out 99 % of the time , its just experience.

   maybe this should be moved to the NO STORMS CLUB? ?

Tornado (or similar) reported near Aylesbury - a friend of mine said she drove through it, things flying everywhere, roof ripped off Morrisons truck.

Well I’m in Aylesbury and I’ve seen no sign of a tornado it’s just been frequent lightning and torrential rain ️

Looks to be heading North West, parts of the Midlands could be in for something if it continues to intensify... though then again it could possibly just be normal rain

I was looking at this. It's intensifying.

It looks it!! The lightning was amazing watching from Chiswick Park tube station!

Yeah it’s like I’m trying to video it all and just so many strikes it’s amazing it really looked like we were gonna miss it and it would just stay over Northampton.
