The area of storms over northern england seem to be expanding a little further west you can see the massive storm on sat 24 growing still

 

Some good strikes nearby and lots of thunder and rain in Darlington 

might get some more later looking at the radar

Overall for a storm that's had all that heat and all that humidity, it wasn't all that! The start of it looked like end of the world stuff, but the rain isn't that much and there's the odd lightning strike. Just a small summer storm really for kent :(

Depressing, we needed more

What are the chances of these storms moving far west to west lothian seem like on radar were missing out :(

Frequent lightning and thunder now and what a wind that's picked up proper gusting.

hi guys, Stockton on tees resident here.

what an absolute corker of a storm we have going on, constant strobing lightning, long rolling booming thunder and an almost green sky.

 

had a couple of close strikes as well, my cat is just like zero hoots given....sleeping through the lot.

I agree, with all the heat was expecting especially more flashes, more intense thunder and hail. Disappointing but better than nothing I guess

Some very dark skies heading in from the south here but rain looks heavy on radar although the lightning looks isolated

It looks like we are now done and finished. Not much for Reigate, a few storms rolled past nearby and a good amount of rain (at LONG last!).

Looking at the radar, it seems the warnings are on the ball. Masses of storms and rain to the east and north. Have fun and take care under that lot.

Think that’s about it lightning wise, still a bit more rain to come. Good luck and stay safe those in the firing line further north and east!

 Really awesome 🙂 definitely buying one. 

Yes. Weatherflow are very good at supplying firmware updates as well, to make sure all sensors are as accurate as possible. The data sampling is fast too - every 3 seconds for wind speeds.

It'll be nice to have something log lightning strikes so that it can be viewed later on, when comparing statistics. Luckily, I don't have mine yet, there's been nothing here to log. 😂

This to the East of me suggests that my hope for a single strike of lightning is gone. We have had probably 27 raindrops west of Northampton today, could see rain to the West and storms to the East but naff all here.

Yes indeed. Nothing here either yet. That real-time data is amazing. Certainly blows away the Netatmo’s 10 minute updates I have atm!

This is my image Paul tried to link to. Shot from somewhere near Flamingo Land looking WSW toward York. The muppet in me forgot I'd had my camera set on medium jpegs rather than RAW as I'd not wanted to confuse my Dad who borrowed it the other day, otherwise I'd probably do something better with the pics

Omg gorgeous supercell and wall cloud  Does anyone have radar data from this time?

A blurry shot reaching up over a hedge when it was over York itself. Again sorry for the quality! Not many places to stop on the back roads!
