    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?

    I'm right next to that cell near Peterborough,  might go for a warm up chase!

    Good grief! That shotgun thunder it produced 5 mins ago!!! Out of nowhere this little beaut has erupted. I love it!

    Do you guys think it is worth staying up to wait for the storm or hope that a loud thunder wakes you up in time??

    That’s my problem too! I don’t want to go to sleep because I may not wake up for the best of the storms so I don’t know whether to set an alarm or something for 3am or something I’m lost for what to do, I hope those storms arrive earlier but then again when they arrive I want them to stick around for a good few hours which they should

    Indeed! Very much liking the current N-S alignment they seem to be taking too.

    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.

    I think it is backbuilding going by the radar loop and @Arnie Pie's photo which shows turrets behind the main cell.

    Hi everyone, not expecting any fireworks here in my part of Wiltshire but good luck to those of you further east.  Let's hope tonight lives up to the hype.  Can't believe how many excited thunder and lightening enthusiasts are on this forum right now!

    Got the cell moving slowly up from Oxford plus the cell near Wolverhampton, which is ever so slowly heading east? 

    What would be the result if these two met up?

    Been feeling very close all day today, great signals. Also I’m noticing little flies and bugs flying around that I don’t normally see, on my windows a few are crawling around. I’m pretty certain the last time that happened was before last year’s big storms in may over London! This is getting me hyped now

    Dunno about back building I think it's looking for another mate after joining forces earlier.

    Just hope any storms reach us lol, we apparently have heavy rain around 3 but whether there's enough for lightning who knows, might be dark enough for distant lightning like in 2015 early July
