The humidity seems to have increased here, looking at lots of "active" radar, one has rain directly overhead, but nothing fell, expanded rapidly as much south of reading as north of it but flew overhead, maybe will deliver something once it goes further north.

Done!

Thanks Rob

it helps as to where there is any action if any at all.

Elevated perhaps?

I can only presume so

Seems like the ingredients were in the mix but no ignition, i imagine it's all moved somewhere east of Oxford now.

Another small cell has popped up West of Chelmsford, question is if it'll die down like the Reading cell or pick up into something worth watching

Brentwood. But all the cells are short-period jobs. They go up, drop a bit of rain and collapse. Is this it? Or will it build more generally?

The temperature here seems to have climbed back up after falling to around 19 at midnight, we are back up to 21 degrees here.

I would suggest to keep an eye on the rader to the west of London as an area of thunderstorms or thundery rain is likely to develop and push north northeast in roughly this area probably between 3 and 4 it’s not a certainty but that’s what I can see happening. 😊2C221AB8-5836-4D8A-BD12-817F38F2777C.thumb.jpeg.6f23c955e8e0d99d73b0bccc95ca8062.jpeg

Just need a cell with some good shear and outflow to destabilize the trough, like a line of dominoes once one goes the rest follows.

You could not move that easterly line a few miles further east, could you?  🙂

So basically, you've looked at the Met Office future radar and then made it your own prediction?

I seem to remember you putting up warning maps before, shortly after convectiveweather issue one, and it looks suspiciously copied. 🙌

Four possible potentials here I think, if they have the strength to build up

Yeah sure haha it’s just a risk and perhaps it will be further to the east closer to you just showing the most likely area currently 🙂

I guess the forecast of some action around 3am might be about right the way it's starting to look and being optimistic too.

You’ve come to that conclusion based on a couple coincidences what I wrote there was my own prediction I didn’t send it for an argument so please don’t start something out of nothing without knowing. Lots of weather sites write similar predictions but does that mean they are copying each other no?

Annoying just got woken up by lightning app with rogue strike - however there are Turkey towers almost overhead. Not sure where that dot on radar is Anaprop as looks a little randonly spread for a genuine return.

The shower just off shore from Cherbourg looks like a genuine radar return. I might be 20miles too far west if the line of initiation is IOW to Cherbourg.

South of isle of white anyone.

Yup, steering motion just east of north, quite a robust cell as well, with another firing over the Cherbourg Penn......subtle forcing in play as the predicted shortwave starts to destabalize the mid-levels....pretty well modelled so far by the hi-res suite

Seeing a lot of lightning out to sea off the coast of Ashington, Northumberland. Nothing at all on Blitzortung.

i just went outside, the smell of fresh hot rain in the air or however best to describe it, cloud cover is still pretty healthy too.

I just took this, which is in the direction of what's on the radar.

I have my PTZ cam pointing at it and I haven't seen any flashes.
