    I must admit I am feeling very positive this evening, the scale of storms could be much wider and many more could see them. I have work tomorrow as a lorry driver and start at 04:30, could be a really action packed start to shift.

    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?

    Spitting with rain here from mid level blanket (some Ac clouds forming under it). The one good thing I can report is it all appears to be moving in from pretty much due south!

    I'm sat here nursing a busted front tooth, face swollen up like a balloon. Bloody KFC! Looks like my plans for a chase are off tonight, will have to window watch ?

    Looks like north western Sheffield had a very short thundery pulse shower between 16:00 and 16:50. I'm now watching a shower that's been drifting around Wales which had some electrical activity hasn't got any now but may have decided to drift this way. This was originally two storms one drifted north the other south until they met and now seemingly drifting north east weird.

    I think I'm a little to far east (don't often say that with storm set ups) but hope it delivers for those in the hatched area. 

    Nice to share it around a bit as I'm sure south and east Kent will get another humdinger before the summers over.

    There's something interesting about that Wolverhampton cell. Why is it the only one to have kept going?

    Sure, it's not electrical right now but other cells have been and gone whilst this one keeps trundling along in a weird direction. Proper daft lad.

    Thats the one I'm watching. Weird little fella was two separate cells which converged and I never seen two cells from opposite directions merge into one before.
