New cell forming rapidly near Frome/Westbury/Trowbridge. Giving regular lightning.

Hmmm might just hold on a few more minutes. Something to the SW is kicking off.

Indeed, things are kicking off again it would seem. Some decent peels of thunder getting closer and the rain is starting up again.

That cell was intense!!! Lighting literally constant for a good 40 mins. Lots of fork lightning in there as well and good thunder. Haven't seen a storm like here in many many years. Cool!!

  Could be more building behind as well.

Maybe next summer we can do a house swap! So much footage to go through, kids are all awake now, so might not get it on until tomorrow

I far prefer being outside the downpours because lightning visibility within them is poor.

Also more development towards Blandford! This could go on a long time!

That was stunning here in Stroud, the strobing lightning show before the rain hit was amazing, then strong wind, then constant thunder with torrential rain and forked lightning. Back to some strobing lightning now!

New cells forming again, near Shepton Mallet, could hit part of Bristol if it develops. Also near Gillingham/Mere. Seeing lightning and hearing thunder from them both.

Seems to have picked up intensity around us again. Heavy rain, constant thunder & flashes of lightening, sons plane is heading towards Manchester! Thank goodness we don’t have school tomorrow! Cannot remember a more prolonged/surreal episode of storm. Looking forward to editing all my footage. Well worth staying up for👍
