Activity slowly petering out in the east. Pity, you'd have thought it could tap into something. But then we are talking about the east....

Well some thunder and lightning here, a little rain. Better than nothing and more than I expected tonight.

I'm exactly on the edge, it's just passing me by in SWF.  But I am getting a light show that I can see from my bed.
Just no rain and no thunder.

Lovely light show well to the north of me. As  Moogy said, no rain , no thunder, nevertheless still pretty spectacular!

It's just reached me in South Lincolnshire. Lightning frequently and big bang's of thunder. Quite heavy rain as well. Do I need to unplug electronic things from plug sockets????

Awoken by lightning and thunder, busy little electrical storm with a lot of lighting high up and behind cloud. Some nice forks as storm moved off, one heavy thunder rumble that shook the ground but was a fair distance away. Sharp heavy shower as well. Slowly moving north but a short while ago lightningmaps.org showed a lot of the UK covered in current or echoes of strikes, quite an outbreak.

Woken up by incredibly loud thunder, house shaking stuff even when at a distance. Heaviest rain my station has ever recorded in 14 years! 1284mm/hr!!!! We only got 1.6mm but we had it in the space of seconds.

Lightening is blinding, car alarms going off all around and biblical rain. Woken by dog jumping on me then realised why!

I think they may have all peaked a little bit early here. Cracking storm with lighting all over the sky now in Norwich had a little heavy rain but appears to have got stronger through Suffolk. Joys of being on a night, and nature puts its own film on

10 hours ago, Froze were the Days said:

Could be a tad warm that, so not sure how accurate that is (FARS) as maximum temperatures in East Anglia on that day was generally near to 32c. I've got a Stevenson Screen which I built myself with British Standard max/min separate bulbs and seems to be reasonably accurate but is hard to tell to what degree accuracy as there are local variations.

Interesting to note just how warm it became on the date you mentioned: 27th July, my memory has obviously let me down as I thought most of the heat was largely over after Wimbledon last summer.

I'm sure it's pretty accurate. Official stations near me showed slightly warmer in a few locations. That temperature was recorded at 1.34pm. There was high level cloud sweeping in from the west that day which them tempered maximum temperatures. Highest temperatures were Bury St Edmunds eastwards that day, so many stations as you say did record 32Cish as a max.

MetOffice text forecast for tomorrow now saying maximum temperature of 39C for East of England. Always tends to be accurate as it's forecaster written rather than automated from raw model data.

Smallish storm, nothing really spectacular. Few nice anvil crawlers. Very little thunder bar a few rumbles from the odd CG.

I think last night officially goes down as the single best night for Storms ever. 

I've never experienced what I did last night in terms of length of lightning over 2 hours.. And it was constant at one point.. 

 

Absoultey stunning...

Had a few big cracks of thunder in the night and 5 mins of heavy rain, unfortunately didn’t really freshen anything up.

Really poor night for sleeping last night had a thunderstorm about 12.30. Think temps today for where I live are going to get higher than forecast on the bbc and meto as they predict 24 for me today with it already being 20 surely it will be higher. Exciting day tomorrow. Think we will all enjoy the fresher weather by Saturday the weekend. Think August is going to be a hot one

No storms here which I’m pleased with as wanted sleep (and we’re lucky enough to have had several decent storms here already this year) but woken by the wind blowing the blinds at one point.

Nothing here last night I don't think. Looks like our chances will be better tomorrow.

Stunning.
