Certainly no shortage of rain here at the moment.  Although I'm not expecting anything thundery it would be nice

Just had some heavy rain here. A lot heavier than it looks on the radar. Can't see anymore lightning now though

I got a probable supercell on Thursday! I honestly think I've had 8-9 days of thunder in 2019. Been a good year really!

It's going to bug me for weeks now that we didn't stop longer to film here (in HD too), we're both adamant we saw rotation close to the ground.

A few strikes showing in Belgium in the last 5 minutes, probably irrelevant.

The one time we could do with it sending storms nuts like it usually does, as they would be driven this way, it doesn’t happen! Typical lol. 

We was so close with that storm last night off the East coast, but it just didn’t make landfall in its prime stages. I even made out a few big flashes every 2 minutes despite it being probably the best part of 100-120 miles away! 

Im not sure if I was hearing things last night during its journey past the N Norfolk coast and the wash, but there was this continuous, very faint constant hum/rumble going on when I was sitting outside with a beer at 1-2AM. To say It really was the thunder off that thing would be against apparently not being able to hear it from more than *Edit* 10 miles apparently!! (Bull....) But I have had this conversation with south coasters on here, and I recall at least one person saying they have definitely observed thunder from storms near the Channel Islands, a good 80-90 miles away. To note also, on the Sheringham cam, I saw that thing spitting out a few +CG’s. Which to my understanding, produce that bomb sounding ever lasting thunder. 

If someone could enlighten me about this, I’d appreciate it. It could be that when over open water, the sound carries much further. I definitely heard a distinct very low continuous rumbling for a good hour.

I would agree with this.  There are no trees, houses, or hills in open water, which I'm sure you know!  It probably helps if the storm is elevated.  Also the audible thunder might be the combined effect of overlapping thunders from the frequent strikes that, in isolation, might not be heard

This morning I was up at Ladybower in the peak district and I could hear somebodies conversation from the opposite side of the valley. In the right conditions sound can travel a long way so you were probably hearing the storm.

Not as weird as silent lightning which also happens.

Well the air is certainly clear today isn’t it? High teens low 20s. Might not even reach 20 in London in some places 

Not sure I'd call it clear - temperature might be down but it's still as humid as hell.

I agree to agree. It must’ve been the thunder. The overlapping thunder as you mentioned makes total sense, as over a distance it becomes more faint and less broken. Plus it was over 130 strikes per minute as per blitzortung, and my radio. At night, sound I know for certain travels much further. For example on the flat Lincolnshire coastline, on a still night with the wind in the right direction, you can hear the sea a good few miles inland, never mind thunder! 

Things like that are precious rare moments that very few people would even be remotely aware of! 

I love being a storm nut! 

 

Edit: There’s a storm erupted in exactly the same spot last nights storm originated from. The Cologne/Mönchengladbach area. Let’s see if it can make it this time! Seems to be more of a WNW trajectory to it too, unlike last night, which was NW.

Is there any potential of seeing anything thundery next week? Looks like there will be a lot of showers, some possibly heavy, and sunny intervals in between.

I see there are number of posts regarding the storms moving up the north sea off the east coast last night. I saw them from our bedroom window in Bempton, around 1.30am there was an almost continuous flickering from the lightning and you could hear the deep rumbles of distant thunder. We were in a good spot to see it.

 

How far will the sound of thunder carry, I assume there are a number of variables, wind, terrain etc. I would estimate from the radar that the storms last night were the order of 20 miles away, with the rapid flickering couldn't apply the 5 sec rule at that distance.

Enjoying this view from the valleys looking toward Cardiff! Quite a formation there

Just noticed on the radar that even though this rain band is traveling to the NW the very edge of the SW side is traveling to the SE?????? The exact opposite direction???? Is this going to cause any potential storms where the 2 different wind directions meet?

I've been watching this form. I also noticed the rain band going NW and Them cells are going SSE 🧐
