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!

hear any thunder? I can but no lightning

Very distant boom, like a low rumble but only occasionally. That must be the ones by Cannock.

Temp and humidity feels a bit fresher now though.

need them about 10 miles further NW, 

It's been quite an afternoon here.

The whole lot is everso slightly nudging north as well as tracking northwest. I think it's very likely you'll see something.

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.

Can't dispute that the last 6 months have been fantastic for weather. 

December finally delivered deep snow in Shrewsbury

Jan and Feb were less memorable but still both produced lying snow 

The coldest March day in decades with two more snowfalls on 1st-3rd and 17-18th

Crazy April that had one of the dankest, dullest, dreariest first halves of any spring month I remember, then one of the sunniest, warmest second halves

May has been basically May 1992 without the crap first 10-12 days that month had. Even matched it with a thundery bank holiday at the end.

Agreed with this, its been a great few months even with that dull weather producing one of the most depressing weeks of weather I can remember. If it continues in this manner 2018 will be a great year!

Wow, been constant rumbling here for the last hour and a half, rain eased off now, but constant rumble still on the go. There was a clap about 7 this morning that shook the house! Impressive stuff, what a year 2018 has become, this will be in memory for a long time

doing what it normally does, hits the W Midlands, and north of region gets next to nothing

same in winter with snaw, did well here, very well infact, but not as well as the W Midlands

It's forecasted to be affecting the more northern parts of the region during the evening and into the night. I think we'll see a very slow shift north over the next few hours. You're in for a treat if it does.

Saw some amazing thunderstorms in June and September 2016 here, but very little storm action since then.

A cracking lightning display over my home town of Harrow, North London last night.

If it's any help to people in Staffordshire, the majority of the lightning was on the southern side of the hill here in Upper Gornal, there's definietly more coming from the northern side now.  I think it is very slowly edging your way as well as tracking northwest.

Could hear the distant booms to the east/NE also a thundery shower developed close by to the NE a dry shower.

Went very still and murkey with mist/patchy low cloud and an eerie look before and dark followed by yellow brightness to the SE not seen nothing like it before.

Reports of lots of roads closed around selly oak and Harborne, and some problems on the m5 with flooding 

This wouldn’t surprise me, in the time I was writing my post on the previous page about the storm in Birmingham and worrying about others getting flooded, my kitchen was getting flooded!!

I think the word you're looking for is 'incoming'!

No doubt about the slow shift from south to north I've noticed around the hill here. Also notice how there's more strikes being picked up near Penkridge and Gnosall.

I'd start getting excited if I were you.

Plenty of flash flooding in prone areas of Birmingham it seems. Usual spots of Selly Oak, Northfield, Harbourne etc.
