These I just took of the storm that just came over frome about 20 mins ago  looks like more to come     

This was sent by a friend heading to Wotton u Edge this morning. VID-20191114-WA0000.mp4

Decided to pop down to Mudeford quay  to enjoy this beautiful evening!  Took my camera along and was treated to the amazing display of noctilucent clouds, obviously others have posted about them alrea

@Dean E Tip for you; I noticed the Ecowitt rain collector would get a little air bubble in the hole before it drips in to the spoon tipping mechanism, this slowed down rainfall somewhat. I sprayed the collecting bit with silicone lubricant spray and it has worked a treat! After clearing the spiders out of my Davis gauge, and the period of rain we just had, the Ecowitt is within 0.5mm of the Davis.

What a thunder storm that was, flooding everywhere, had one lightning strike right above the house with less than a second between that and the thunder which shook everything in the house!!

Blimey, what happened in Weston? Someone posted a video on Facebook of a house with a badly damaged roof ? 

Not seen a thunderstorm like that here in Weston for years, there was a quick mention on points west about a primary school that was struck by lightning, didn't mention which one though.

Finally got a small storm here - some thunder and lightening. Was building overhead as it happened. Clouds amazing with the sunlight. 

I know some are disappointed by temperatures and lack of wall to wall blue sky, but this spring and early summer has produced the best cloudscapes most days of the week that I’ve seen for years at this time of year. I hope it continues! In my back yard at least today has been the wettest day this year by far, so I’m not disappointed by the weather for the last couple of months at all - it’s been fascinating to watch...

Although I wasn’t home, my location took a near direct hit from the thunderstorms moving up through N Somerset.

Instead, I was driving back from Wells across the Mendips and got an awesome visual on the cells with multiple lightning strikes visible. Had I not got stuck behind so many effing farmers and dippy drivers, I might have caught the back end of the storm that marched on up to west Bristol.

Oh wow. It was posted on the Spotted Weston Facebook page. There was a post regarding flooding in Worle High St and one of the comments was a video showing the damaged roof.
