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 cant see why not, as they move into a more favourable environment for Surface Based Storms then they should hold their course, it is not uncommon for Elevated Storms to become rooted into the Boundary layer and become surface based

It seems that the easternmost edge of the unstable airmass is aeound 10-15 miles to my west - any sign that it might move slightly further east?

If you're on facebook, go to www.facebook.com/live. Few videos on there, one guy showing live coverage in Norfolk with some hail the size of grapes.

Where cannot find looking

Storm rolling in here at work near Heathrow, not particularly active lightning wise, but first proper rain I’ve seen in over 8 weeks, hope it cools things down a tad, still feels like a sauna outside

A surprisingly average day in MK so far, despite the temperatures! Storm that came through this morning struggled to produce any lightning and mostly clear skies since then. It's got quite interesting in the past half an hour though. Getting a lot darker to the south!P1150011.thumb.JPG.8e60276a5ca21d66fc9294196c10b500.JPGP1150017.thumb.JPG.135fc39b6edba85eda1c3924ef473151.JPG

AcCas produced a short spell of big raindrops earlier. Now I can see the cell and darkening skies to my west over London.

Was on the phone to my boss who is in the London office and said that it looked as if a storm was developing - about 60s later she reported a huge crack of thunder (weather nerd reputation still intact lol).

Extremely oppressive here today - heading to the Kent coast this evening hopefully skipping ahead over the main activity with action for their sweeping in around 21z - 22z. Fingers crossed.
