Lightening is pretty much constant now. More lightening than thundercracks.

Wow, that was a fairly brief but whopper of a storm! Frequent lightning and no thunder to begin with and then as the rain started there  were some really loud cracks, the air was so electrified! Pretty gusty winds too! Not too shabby 🙂

Taunton, Somerset btw 🙂

Still almost constant lightning from I’m presuming more mid level cloud/anvils and I dare say the storm from the coast towards Salisbury is extending this way now. Possibly going to get the Western edge of that or some daughter cells/back building developing rapidly.

Evening all, just stopping by to report we've had the most incredible thunder storm I think I've ever seen. Constant sheet and forked lightning, the thunder wasn't the usual loud clap followed by a break but constant bangs and crashes with no let up in between. It looked and sounded just like a film set for a WW11 blitz scene. Unbelievable.

Plenty of lightning just to the south of me, thunder is rumbling a bit too and it's still very warm and sweaty. Moths are a bit of a nuisance too, but you've got to have the windows open.

All that's left here now is rain - 5mm of it so far and continuing. I just checked the latest online forecast from the Met Office for here - less than 5% chance of rain indeed. The least said about that, the better as my daughter relies on it, that'll teach her!  😆

Still going here. Can hear heavy thunder now & constant flashes of lightening. Had the briefest of heavy downpour. Think I’m going to get double whammed by what’s coming up through Salisbury. Me & dog have come in from the garden & watching it through conservatory roof now

ok, even I’m not that brave. Gone into the house now!💥Boom💥My windows shook!

All I can say is WOW!!!  Constant lightning to the west of me for about half an hour then there was some lightning from the other direction a good half an hour before we heard thunder. Big drops of rain to start now sounds like it is easing off. Can still here the thunder in the distance. One very happy girl tonight.😃😃

Renewed lightning to my SSW after round one went up and over Bristol. 

Really odd having lightning to my east, west and south a clear sky above.

Hmmmm Wareham must have connections with Westbury then. One storm to the left of me now one to the right. Oh well, the light show was good but no direct hit with just a brief shower of rain. Time to call it a day. Work in the morning 😩

More developments off the SW edge of the cells. Such rapid formation in the last 10 minutes! Another storm incoming for Warminster.
