Some rather large discrepancies in the number of UK lightning strikes over the last 24 hours. Can anybody shed some light on why that might be?

Netweather: 27,000
MeteoGroup: 50,000
Convective Weather: 215,000

Different time spans?

Also huge discrepancy between Blitzortung and lightningmaps. Blitzortung was wildly over optimistic last night.

Different detection networks I assume, I think, If anyone can confirm this, that Netweather uses lightning data from the Met Office?

The type of storm also seems to make a big difference, i.e elevated or not

Interesting this afternoon. Temperature is higher than forecast and steering wind looks backed enough to bring showers up here from Wales with a short sea track. Still have modest shear as well and flow is fast moving. Similar tomorrow also  if anything wind even more  backed.Usually do okay from this set up e.g. 10th of June 2014.

Very nasty storm here at the moment in Antrim, some of the heaviest rainfall I've ever seen and huge gusts of wind. 

Lots of thunder too with some hail too.

I'm situated directly under the white echos in the attached radar grab

Well for a lot of us the looooooong spell of heat did go with a bang finally. For those who didn't get anything over the past couple of days I can imagine it must be incredibly frustrating. And for regular people with no interest in the weather it must have been a surprise today to wake up to windy overcast cool conditions!

Props to the forecasters and congrats to the chasers too, strong work! 💪 I had to sit in a staff meeting in the morning with grumbles of thunder nearby from small cells but with gorgeous undulatus bases ( @Supacell these were the ones over Belper, couldnt tell you what the lightning was like since I was grinding my teeth at work) and then do my days work, for which mercifully there was a lull in activity, before I could head off out. I made it as far as Brigg in North Lincs by which time I was caught up in it all. Think I missed by mins the worst of the convective gusts but the darkness, hail, rain and frequent flashes were impressive. Roads flooded, everyone pulling up on to the kerb and tree branches everywhere. It moved over pretty fast though and thankfully the roads drained as fast as they flooded so I headed south towards Norfolk hoping to catch the MCS and nighttime lightning. Again made it as far as Kings Lynn before I was prematurely overtaken. Stood in a field getting soaked watching a whole lot of flashing but not much in the way of visible bolts. Hoped for crawlers on the back edge but think there was too much low cloud obscuring. Interestingly though there was the very occasional but massive discharge from the kind of rear anvil shield area which i had never seen before.

Too much rain for nighttime lightning photography attempts but ill have a look on the gopro and see if theres owt worth showing. Overall A good chase but kinda feel like I missed out still. Especially after the pics of the York storm! Major kudos @Gorky

Looks like a strike over ST Helens way. It’s so windy today, didn’t expect it to be this bad. 20.2°C currently.

Sadly the heatwave didn’t end with a bang for me, all we got was one very gentle shower of rain. :cray:

But on the bright side, today we’ve got strong sunshine, a very strong and gusty breeze, and some beautiful convective cloudscapes going on. :)
