    Yes I'm thinking of heading east along the motorway into Lincs tomorrow ?

    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

    Yep, I'll start at the M180/A180 services and see where's best from there. Only an hours drive thanks to the straight motorway :D

    Beeb showing initiation around 2am for the Midlands and Pennines, lasting well up into the early morning hours. I won't be able to sleep in this heat anyway so it's a good excuse for pulling a all-nighter just on the hope of seeing some distant lightning, anything that comes overhead locally will be a bonus.

    Moon is so bright tonight, but seeing means there is no cloud which equals no storms, bugger, lol 

    I reckon it's still a little early yet, my bets are something within the next 2-3 hours

    Dog's are going mad here, can here 3-4 barking like there's no tomorrow. Maybe they know something we don't.

    At the risk of being criticised for saying this... it doesn’t feel like a big storm kind of a night anymore really.

    a) lack of any decent areas of elevated cloud

    b) humid and still warm but nothing out the ordinary where I am

    c) no real areas of rain (yet)

     

    I’m thinking it could be hours yet if anything does kick off

    Have not had any rain since late may here, wondering what impact an intense downpour will have here in terms of flooding and sudden river rising.

    It's starting to go the right way, so hard to get a photo but look at this (if you can see it) 

    Big fluffy clouds going up..

    Looking at rain radar for the last hour appears to be a band of rain weakened to nothing over the channel which appears to stretch up towards oxford area.

    Its gone now - but looks suspiciously like what one of the models was picking up earlier on (AROME I think).

    Wonder if that was supposed to be our opportunity ?

    Yep, 2 cg's seen corresponding to the 2 sferics on blitzortung. Not the full destabilising yet though. I've got to work tomorrow but have already decided to drive out East soon as I can after, hopefully in time for the party!

    Well spotted @Surrey looks mid level and mackerel like. Hopefully it’s not just dross from the storms over N France earlier

    Just had a big flash and booming rumble of thunder. Think it was from the cell near Mansfield but it surprised me a bit - thought it'd lost its potency.

    @Surrey I have a better view of that cloud band from here (nicely illuminated by a London lights). Definitely promising looking to me, looks like a mid level band possibly AcCas.
