    Another bright flash towards Clowne/Worksop direction...distant rumble

    Nothing here apart from a 30 second spurt of rain but the smell is ace

    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

    Have to say I think it’s a bit early, main trough is only currently over the West Country, won’t see initiation until this swings through in CS England in a couple hours or so. Wouldn’t be surprised to see cells fires around the IOW then lift NE from about 1am.

    Definite cell popped up between aldershot and Woking. Could be the start of something. Elevated development can initiate extremely quickly.

    Pathetic attempt here. Weak Thundery shower producing 0.2mm of rain so still on for one of the driest Julys on record.

    So still storm free here just two thundery showers this year and weak ones at that.

    Tomorrow is a dead duck as well. GFS and local forecast both say  a dry hot day.

    I'm flying to Budapest shortly. Got a feeling I'm in for a bumpy ride.

    Pretty bad turbulence on the way up but the rest of the flight went swimmingly.

    Now it's lashing it down in Budapest with occasional lightning.

    BBC forecast still showing the overnight storms breaking out across the spine of the country, MetOffice keen to keep things further towards the East

    Latest arpege and hirlam models going for what looks like a MCS tomorrow evening up East Anglia into Lincs. 

    Sky here is full of AcCas and still a staggering 27.8c at RAF Wittering! Definitely a ripe environment out there!

    Being on the East Sussex coastline, should I give in and call it a night, or wait a bit longer?

    Dan (convective weather) has the red risk box along with the severe over Lincolnshire and the Humber/East Yorkshire tomorrow. I am getting me some of that ?

    CV says Friday night for the high risk area I believe.   I'm tempted to bomb it east along the m62 after work but it would take until 10.30 to get to hull.  I shall watch the radar methinks and hope it's not too late
