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

Unfortunate for those in central areas, but I think this is gonna be pretty spot on for later today.

I’m ignoring the white box zone (liking the shade of yellow more) but wouldn’t rule out some sporadic cells popping up here and there.

Don’t know how well this covers ongoing activity into tomo?

I think the cutoff for this chart is 3am - there was chatter of more general thundery rain more centrally throughout the day tomo, albeit without the severe aspect ?

Let’s see what happens...

Belper actually got a storm ?. However I am on the east coast near to Mablethorpe. Plenty of thunderstorms on my drive here during this morning, although the strongest storms were on the east coast whilst I was chasing storms near to Lincoln. I hadn't planned on heading this far until later but may aswell stay put despite it all being fairly quiet here now (bar some very distant rumbles out to sea). Thr sun is out and I am hoping to see some big storms later.

Haha, a day out on the beach with lightning for desert

Good morning all, well do direct hit last night but an hour or so,s impresive lightening, unfortunatly very cloudy skies here this morning keeping conditions very fresh and wont help any storm potential for later i feel.

Hi everyone

Sorry for the imby question but what are the chances for the south east this evening Essex based.  BBC saying yes with a warning. metro saying no with no warning. I guess this is a nowcast situation where we should expect the unexpected. Good and bad...any feedback would be greatly appreciated

Good luck to everyone

I am not in Mablethorpe. I would advise any chasers heading to the east coast of Lincolnshire to avoid busy spots like Skeggy, Mablethorpe or Cleethorpes or you may get traffic screwed ?

It sounds like some family members up in Yorkshire are getting some good storms. 

One thing amazes me as a weather geek is how people’s view of what’s going on is so localised, almost to the street they live on. I saw someone commenting how it was “blue sky but thundering, weird weather” when in fact there we’re storms less than a mile away. It’s almost as if people look at one small patch of sky out of one window and think that’s indicative of the whole sky! If they’d probably looked out of another they’d have noticed the great big looming storm clouds!   

Peoples perception of weather fascinates me.

At home in York we were in the firing line this morning, with a storm passing overhead at 7:30-8:00am.

I'm now at work near Malton and deep rumbles are approaching once again.

We are unfortunately placed for Surface based storms I agree, there simply is not the land track for Essex and Surrey in our locales. You have to get very lucky with a NE Moving storm to form for you just inland from the Hampshire Coast or for me north of Brighton. Otherwise its MU Cape Storms from France which deliver or get annoyed by Surface based Supercells raging in NW France that lose intensity as they encounter the English Channel.

I would take a punt on a possible MCS This evening for our area so all is not lost..................yet

Other than That East Cambs, Norfolk, Suffolk and Lincs looks primed if you can drive just a little bit north today.

Yeah, I'm weighing up whether to head up the M11 and see how it unfolds OR sit tight and wait for a chance on an MCS later. Friday traffic though :(

I was kind of spoiled on holiday, but I swear to god I will kick myself if I miss something 50 miles away this afternoon. Also after seeing the towers going up illuminated by the moonlight in the early hours, I'm considering the eclipse might be a photo op.

Argh I don't know! At least it's heating up tho.

I know you have to be careful with radar but this storm near Barnsley seems to have an interesting and sustained shape on radar.

That's just passed over my head,nothing special bar heavy rain for 5 mins,few rumbles of thunder but we've had better this morning.

Looks like it's brightening now.

I wasn’t commenting on the intestity but there’s a couple of the more isolated storms including that one showing that kidney bean shape which is a sign of shear.

I think a lot of it comes down to surface/elevated and day/night too. Yesterday’s surface-based stuff gave me constant daytime rumbles but no lightning when the storm was in East Leeds, about 3-4 miles away. On the other hand, that elevated Yorkshire supercell a few years back was still visible, strobing away when the maps had it over County Durham, a good 80 miles to the north east.

Gone quite dark and can hear rumbles in the distance but not sure where from? Lovely clouds this morning though!

EDIT: Deep rolling thunder now heard to my south and east.

 

Shows how humid it is my Bordeaux is melting with it so had to improvise with a cold towel  lol
