    Lots of distant sferics just started now very frequent but around 100–150 miles away. 

     Oh no my mistake 53 miles to the north. I’ve got one every five seconds and increasing in frequency.

    Caught some lovely structure last night. Just South of Hailsham, E Sussex, looking toward the coast.

    This courtesy of one of my closest friend’s Dad in Eastbourne...crank the sound right up!! Amazing! 3EC4CEA2-31E0-4E40-B801-02CA5200BA65.MP4

     Sferics every 3-5 seconds still, sounding closer 

     That’s all kicked off so quickly. must be the steeper lapse rates coming in. 

     Very active cumbria  cell has died off.

     Still the wrong direction for me but it’s expanding, maybe outflow Boundry spawning

    ESTOFEX have issued Levels 1 & 2 warnings.

    A level 1 and 2 were issued across western France and southern UK mainly for severe wind gust, large hail and tornado chances, and in Ireland for spout-type tornadoes.

    Leeds TAF says the same but they’re not very accurate in my experience. Personally I’ll be surprised if we get anything now, attention shifts south and east.

    The latest Met text forecasts suggest that tonight’s “thundery rain” will be further west. Take this for Nw England. 

    The dreaded "thundery rain" term , If there is a guarantee that you won't hear thunder it is when forecasters use that term.

    Could be a rotating mothership supercell, and the TV weather would (and have) refer to it as "thundery rain"!

    Yeah I am exited for the Level 2. Just off the edge of it but I don't think there will be any supercells. Hoping for significant MCS Tuesday morning though!

    I dont think this week will be that bad anymore, no more significant events apart from Saturday and I don't think it will be that bad. Still hoping for Saturday's 6z GFS run.

    I keeping coming back to this forum hoping someone will tell me that this weeks storms will be bad.

    Tonight's storms across eastern England could be bad in terms of flooding rains, frequent lightning and possibly hail. Most lightning on the eastern side of the system. I won't say "will" be bad as nothing is certain ?

    My mate has the car fueled up, I have the camera gear, it's dark out, and we're wearing sunglasses.
    Hit it!

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
