Hail from the storm in York. Wouldn't want that falling on your head!

It was worth all the effort ?

Explosive convection to my west in Norwich. I can see it growing, its immense! Not seen anything like it before except on Storm Chasers on the TV

     Desperately clutching at straws, if those cells in Dorset could somehow survive all the way up here then maybe someone in this region would see something later.

    Short, sharp shower just now - looked to be forming overhead. Presumably it will develop into a proper storm further north in typical fashion.

    Steering flow is taking them NNE anyway, Chris. That's why they are shaving me. I need something to develop slightly West of the line - may get lucky, but I don't see it happening.

    I admire your straw clutching Chris! I think my location is probably too far west for anything, let alone Merseyside?

    We're not forecast to see something here mate. None of the models suggest anything. We may get an opportunity later tomorrow but we'll see.

    A dire year for storms again here.

    I can see a 'horseshoe'  in that cell towards Bournemouth - huge precip curtains from within it.

    Everything is coming very near me and then almost does a dance around my area. Was really hoping. Everything seems to be either West or East of us.

    Temp and humidity falling away now, so thats it for today, bbc and met office now dropped storms from the forecast for tomorrow, so now to look forward to the middle of next week when things are due to warm up again and give us hopefully another chance of storms.

    If things continue the way they are us lot in the Peaks might see a good night-lightning show from the cells over towards Sheffield, Lincs, and Yorks.

    Well a miss here but can see the storm clouds from my window. Tomorrow looks like I may be able to enjoy storms from either the west facing window or the east face window but no here.

    Nice little storm built up as it's headed north from Barnsley. Nothing special yet but it's just nice to finally get some rain!

    Looking south from my bedroom in Garforth, East Leeds. Rumbles coming from the grey mass to the right of the anvil... 20180726_182347.thumb.jpg.8ce29b323a7670ee2e36aab7100078de.jpg
