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!

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

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

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.

sferic's really getting going in N France now, so hope you enjoy what you get later

In terms of the hatch, well nothing short of a flight would get me there, now

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!

Fasten your seatbelts lads. It’s gonna be a long night!

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.

If only that splodge near le man's was heading due north, would be a direct hit for me

Interesting strike there near Orleans... could be good for East Kent  and another just west of Paris.

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
