Surreal storm dead silent with IC lightning every few minutes 

Silent with distant lightning here. Only a few drops of rain so far. Surely....

It's still 23c in Prestwick, there must be a pretty good chance its going to beat the highest overnight minimum record!

Wakes up.  Checks phone.  Checks radar.  Will it make it here?

Been asleep all night up until now so I think there’s probably not been any rain or storms through here. A check of the radar shows a big blob to the east covering most of East Central Scotland and the borders, looks like  being v heavy.

Been a couple of faint rumbles here in past 10 mins, the rain comes on periodically but not heavy. It’s mostly missing here although radar suggest some rain possibly developing over inland Ayrshire which could pass over here provided it doesn’t wishbone.

Southerly gale  and pulses of heavy rain .Some lightning and thunder  about half an hour ago. Currently 20.5c. A very stormy morning for midsummer in complete contrast to 12 hours ago.

We had a fair bit of lightning  from 1.45 onwards but it really got going just after 2am and the rain only cleared after 5am.  Came from due south of me then circled round the hills to the west then came back again. Heavy heavy rain and gusty strong winds for a short time. Now warm but not humid, husband says 20C.

Yes the squeaky bum time I had at 23:00 last night came true - really though it would all push a bit more North but it went more North East resulting in us missing out! (Glasgow also)

I am knackered as well - stayed up until 3:00 then had to get up at 6:00!

Bit gutted - especially seeing all the pictures/videos from England and Wales! Great photo from Blackpool!

Ah well - always next time!

Tomorrow is going to be a proper scorcher! 27c here so I imagine further inland we could be looking at 30c and I see thunderstorms are mentioned again! 😂

Quite a good chance of the hottest UK day in recorded history tomorrow!

Morning all!

A bit of cloud around still to burn off (or not) after the fun and games for a couple of hours from 4am to around 6am of torrential rain and flash bangs.

Currently 20.4c.   Don't think it will get as high here as yesterday, but pleasant all the same.

Tomorrow Southern and Eastern parts of Scotland main risk going by the Metoffice warnings - it’s widespread and locally intense! Great wording! Late evening/first part of the night as well.

I need to move! 😂

The storm thread is worth a look/browse - incredible pictures/videos posted in there.

in the end very little rain came from this first burst. Maybe tomorrow as Frosty just posted might do better for us

Looks like Embra and Fife are the new storm capital of the UK, another big one last night with torrential rain

Tomorrow late arvo could be really fun here as that cold front hits the heat ...
