Have you tried Microsoft Edge?

 

I have all the same as you otherwise. It does take a few seconds to load.

 

There is also probably the Padlock at the top left in the address bar next to https://www.bognorregisbeach.co.uk/live...is it showing as a red line through the padlock?

 

 

Thanks - been through these and just updated Java - still no luck. Listen folks, thanks for the suggestions, let's all concentrate on storms instead! I'll sort this out somehow (take hold of large wood mallet...)

I thought I might get a bit of lightning, but the storm had lost a bit of intensity. 

 

Learned this from visits to the hills near Hambledon over In Hants. Storms looked really close on radar but even when it got dark I couldn’t see anything.

It’s possible if the storms are already fully mature and/or there are clear skies ahead of the cells.

If not they have to get fairly close before you see what I like to call the ‘atmos flashes’ (flashes on the periphery of your vision) but typically you’ll see the forks on the very horizon first.

It’s a great thing to experience either way - gives you a real sense of scale as they approach 😃

Nice cluster of storms still yet to leave France and on target with most forecasts for the SE emphasis target areas in my opinion.

What is DLS? Is that something like deep level shear? 

Close.  It's a way of settling rain affected cricket matches, the Duckworth Lewis Stern method, I'll get my coat... 😁

Now just southwest of London at Cobham services. Considering the storms are looking like reinvigorating once on our shores, I am thinking I would be better off staying near to London as opposed to heading to the coast (Brighton).

It seems like that band moisture might just be heavy rain, with the possibility of some embedded lightning and thunder once it reaches Brighton.

The cells behind it seem to be sparking up again!

That Cherbourg peninsula cell is now electrified. 

Interesting anticipation coming up within this next hour. Looks like possibly more cells ready to fire up behind it too.

Incredibly humid here on the south coast. 

BBC just updated to thunder around midnight / 1am 

big clouds are starting to appear

 

This looks like one of those American storms that feeds from one spot and spreads out from there, getting wider and wider. Forgot what they are called, and I very much doubt this is one.

One thing I learned from 25 years of storm chasing, is that amazing storms that do occur tend to break the weather in that location for a month or so and any repeat of storms of the same level usually occur somewhere else.   Not to say the SE has used up all it's atmospheric energy like a battery it might well explode into life later as the elevated storms get going.   It does happen with Kent getting repeated imports but quite rare you will get a same repeat in the UK in the same location, of the same intensity. 

As the heat builds for the rest of the week the SW,  devon, cornwall might actually see something fantastic

I’m expecting the system to destabilise or ‘blow’ up once it gets to the UK, that’s what these systems tend to do, but we shall see in a few hours...

Seems like the London Area might be the best vantage point.

Although, they do appear to be moving in a more NE direction now.

Those in the Brighton area, look like they'll get the best views if the storms re-ignite!

Reverse to what I was expecting the western edge looks like the most powerful, with the eastern edge looking like thundery rain, heavy rain.

I'm not sure there is even forecast to be any sort of thundery breakdown at the weekend is there?

Looks more like the Atlantic just shoving its way back in

Seem to be underestimating the size of the area of rainfall so far. Will the lightning keep going?
