Nightmare last night...power cut, no fans or anything - it was like trying to get to sleep in a sauna. Lightning was flashing all around and as there were no lights in the house the lightning showed u

Out on this morning's walk and as promised this time with camera at the ready. And I was lucky enough to hit the jackpot with this great display of virga from cloud in the distance. And you can see wh

This is not meant to cause offence but I’d appreciate it if you (and others) cease putting a dampener on genuine excitement at the current (and brief!) extreme weather. It’s a weather forum for weathe

After maxing out at 33 deg here today I've just felt a welcome cooler breeze! Still 24deg. Some huge flashes of lightening looking towards the coast but not sure it's going to make it here.

Some deep rumbles as I type this...fingers crossed!

What I don't understand is why no thundery breakdown Thurs/Fri?? Hot spells always used to end up going bang but doesn't seem to these days!

Yep, all we get is "cooler conditions moving in from the west". So no standard thundery breakdown, no imports, no set ups like tonight. Not sure what's happened to the east tbh.

Wherever this thing goes you are in for an absolute treat. 2 hours in and still going strong. Constant lightning, the. You think it’s moving off and then the wind and rain pick up and then you are back in it. Got to be up in about 5 hours to go paddleboarding...

Not a bad little storm and lightning display for a few hours in Brighton,most of it was looking West at other people's goodies but we did get our own cell in the last half hour.Some great forks and booming thunder.

I’m going to TRY to sleep in this soupy, ludicrously sultry heat; There seems to be no point in staying up, as I’ve only seen a few very distant flashes. I don’t generally tend to be negative, as I enjoy seeing other people around me be happy. The same goes for this forum. But tonight... has been incredibly frustrating for the East Sussex coastline. I am feeling quite irritated, and sullen.

I am still very happy for all the storm starved peeps this morning! I’m glad you are getting a good show. Now, let’s see if I can even begin to fall asleep...
