    Quite a sight here, can just see the tops of cloud lit by the minimal daylight left. Some towering clouds forming on the western edge.

    Caught some lovely structure last night. Just South of Hailsham, E Sussex, looking toward the coast.

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

    Feeling more doubtful for anything to appear further west, say Bedfordshire/Northants. I know anything can happen but looking at current activity then it does look like a wider Kent clipper that's going on? Thoughts?

    Looking at French Rain Radar, there's stuff out in Biscay that could well reach a wider spread of southern UK later on. But...what sort of state it will be in, is anyone's guess.

    So far as I can see anything to the west of the main Caen splurge of storms seems to have a lot less instability. So I guess it looks more like rain.

    That’s not the body (core/updraft, that is moving NE) it’s just the top of the anvil spreading expanding out.

    That's the Cirrus Anvil.....the storm updrafts are on the NE/E flank

    My other half summed up tonight's wiltshire storm potential savagely when I mentioned ..."OOh, looking quite dark towards the south east!"....to which she replied..."That's because it's night time you berk, goodnight"  *sigh*

    I am currently overlooking the sea in Brighton and this storm is terrific, all forms of lightning with long sustained bursts especially powerful cloud to Ground. I believe this has definitely transformed into a Mesoscale Convective system especially considering its massive scale and longevity.

    I wonder if the approaching trough from the west (UK) might pep things up later? Either through compression, or just plain under-cutting the current instability?

    (Ahhh - nothing like hope).

    Considerable sky illuminations to my SE now...such a shame it’s moving away. Least I can see that now I suppose!

    Seems to be doing a right turn as it hit the coast.

    What a cracker of a storm, didn't have to go more than a mile outside of Hailsham and got some pics (I'll post later, back out for more chasing in a mo)
    Definitely rotating and a low-hanging wall cloud, what a sight!

    Think I’m going to call it a night and set my alarm for say 3am to see if (as some models have teased) there is early hours developments. Might watch the SE sky a bit longer in case I’m waiting weeks for further action.
