    I refuse to accept that this will be another Kent Clipper type scenario, with the models changing all the time. I think the best thing to do is to just watch the radar and see what happens. 

     

    That big band of precipitation near Guernsey looks to be heading in a N/NNE direction, and is set to hit roughly the West and also the Midlands. I think there could be one or two surprises from this if and when it reaches here. 

     

    Its finally brightening up here somewhat too..

    Was trying to brighten up here as well, still cloudy mind but you could tell the sun was trying to break through a little

    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

    In my storm watching spot for the night at Caterham view point on the southern edge of M25?

    Any idea when we could expect to see the first signs of life in France for tonight? 

    Not panicking, more so that I know when to start radar watching! ?

    Those cells along the Welsh border literally came from nowhere ?

    I did say there was TCU building a few hours ago,and nothing here but a thundery shower to the south heard 6 rumbles a while back.

    are those cells in Wales still producing lightning? looks like they heading NNE

    The one over Oswestry is, the one south of Shrewsbury seems to have stopped producing sferics

    It's remarkably...unremarkable out there. Although there is an interesting developing line north of Angers...

    When that line of cloud came over a few big spots of rain,top of 1 cloud turned very small parted off, and the wind changed direction to the west so a convergence line.

    Far too early to call it a bust. Would say it's a bust when there have been no lightning strikes across SE England/North France at midnight.

    Models generally don’t indicate much in the way of developments across N France until around or after 9pm. Little while to go yet.

    This area looks promising to me; represented well by some decent convective clouds on the Sat24 within the mass of cloud.

    Can hear the Shrewsbury cell on the radio. A spheric about every eight seconds. I can only dream of that sort of strike rate here.

    Would expect development In the 8-9 range. Also the placement of development is the most important thing like last week.

    N Shrewsbury cell has suddenly intensified, think it is heading NE towards Stoke and Macclesfield?

    It had better not- it came from Oswestry direction, if it gets 10 miles away and then effs off in that direction it'll prove most storms are allergic to this area
