Ok, I have to reply to this because it's misleading the entire thread, iv studied radars and the weather all my life, the low pressure that formed along the south side of the main low is pushing east,

Nathan "not a weatherman" Rao of the Express says "Army on Standby as heaviest SNOWFALL hits in next 24 hours" What a bellend!

I can see the storm heading for Cannock, out of my window. It looks mean. The rumbling is constant, it's going to be a miss for us but a great storm for anyone in its path. The rumbling isn't stopping, there is no gap.

thus is going to be a memorable one for those in line. Can't remember hearing so much unbroken grumbling. Not unless the dingles lose and WM is on anyway.

Yes this just scraped me also... very disappointing. Cannock always seems to do so so much better than Lichfield for storms for some strange reason, oh wel. I am waiting to shoot out in my car if we look like getting another near miss.

Things are really kicking off now! Constant rumbling in the distance, and according to the radar a n explosion of activity to both the NW and SE of here.

The storm near Leamington Spa should hopefully starting shifting in this direction :yahoo:

Mate, if you run the 3.30-4.30 Netweather radar loop, it's actually harder for this entire storm to have missed us 2 than it is to have not. It's skirted, moved, back built and moved again and basically spent the entire of the last hour rumbling in the distance outside my bed room window! 

 

Its a complete joke. Looking forward to hearing reports as this would have been a treat.

 Constant rambling of thunder here must be from a storm nearby last night was just crazy so much lightning rain and thunder

TF1 and not a sausage, there has been distant rumbles, it has gone dark here again but just rain, even my 5 year old said this is rubbish. He was in the garden with me and got very impatient kept saying why is the thunder not coming, i said even the storm's dont want to come to Telford!

TF3 has had maybe 2-3 hours of non-rain, and several hours of serious rain, with thunder for maybe 6 hours off and on in the last 12 hours, and currently tons of lightning as well as total deluge! 

All the great weather wants to come to Telford! :)

Huge storm currently in Harborne, Birmingham. Constant rumbles and heavy rain and hail. Sadly I would say there will be flooding problems in prone areas of Brum

I can hear the constant rumbling in the distance here too. Last night was epic though, with plenty of flashes and crackles, close by. If you think about it, the last 3 months or so has been great for weather events. From the beast from the east in early March to the gloriously sunny and cloudless skies we've enjoyed for much of May and now some thunder thrown in for good measure. 2018 has certainly been quite an interesting year weather wise thus far.

BIsh…

 Was out on the golf course from 14:00 until now.

Incredible developments right over the top of us.

I guess that the sudden increase in humidity and temps up to 25C must have broken the cap.

 It all  occurred in about 10 mins. One minute no development. Next minute huge towering thunderheads, just passing overhead of us.

 However the fun did not start until they go to Acocks Green.. (nothing unusual there then!?)

Like you I am now hoping the storm approaching from Northampton via Coventry stays active.  

 Gone as black as night here now, but no rain and just an occasional flash.

Wow, we can smell the wet ground indoors three floors up!

you know that smell you get when it rains after a long dry spell? We've had some rain for several days but the ground had big cracks in it, wide enough to shove a pencil down - and now that smell of 'grateful ground' is so strong it's coming in through the windows.

STREWTH that was one of the loudest, longest thundercrashes I've heard in the UK - wow!

Must be the dozenth near miss of the year so far. I can see the storm clouds from my front window.

Yep I can see the storm clouds too but just too far south. Also the sun has gone in annoyingly.
