You wait a lifetime for a funnel cloud and then two come at once!

A few from last night, just South of Salisbury. Mostly intracloud stuff, but an impressive light show none the less.  

Well that was a pretty awesome night. Although I cant help but feel slightly disappointed for not getting any SLR shots. And now I'm left wanting more and more ?. Anyway a very impressive light show w

NW showing more lightning for my area in Wendover Bucks tomorrow night but no other models showing anything?

Are we in for a round 2? 

Hopefully - and this time I won’t sit under the blinking thing getting blasted with gamma rads and risking electrocution ?

BBC local weather mentioned nothing of it though earlier, just talking about the potential record breaking heat - so I don’t know for certain

Same for me mate! Can’t believe this lol ? however I stayed awake and saw constant flickering out west from the main area of storms as I’m in south London. Had some heavy rain for just under an hour and one massive lightning strike above me producing some booming thunder but I saw nothing of what other people saw

Well that was rather spectacular for the uk!! Never seen so much lightning over bedford. I walked for 2 hours to get to the nearest hill, then waited. Was well worth the walk!! Got rather wet though

Well overall a good night for storm lovers - even for us here in the East! We had 2 rounds - the first gave some decent fork lightning displays, the 2nd a bit more intense, with some small hail mixed in. It was great for sure - whilst not being the most intense storms I've witnessed here, the worst of the thunder heads seemed further North/East, whilst the characteristics of the storms seemed quite elevated in nature generally from what I saw,. Haven't yet seen any large hail/wind damage reports yet so maybe severe weather was limited? 

There were plenty of doubters on here earlier in the thread for Eastern England but as I said, the early development in Central Northern France proved to be pivotal in extending the storms further east, and so it proved! 

There are strong signals for some storm potential in Eastern England tomorrow, and with the uplifted heat, we could be seeing some very tasty storms tomorrow evening in SE/East Anglia.... especially if initiation commences late afternoon/evening. With those temperatures I'd imagine large hail and severe threats would be prominent if initiation gets going early enough. One to watch.

Sadly in the one part of the country that didn't see much action - this was Reigate Hill. Obviously no Tripod and what i forgot i had anti shake on (doh!).

Nothing like as good as last year for me ?
