OMG 3rd July 2001. What an amazing night that was. 

Never forgotten it, I talk about it with the same reverence that my Dad does about the July 1st/2nd 1968 event (dust falls, giant hail, total daytime darkness and  24 hours of thunder and lightning along the squall line which stretched from Devon up along the England/Wales border to Merseyside and across Northern England to Teeside)

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

Think I'm just going to sit tight in Bristol and see how the night pans out. Will definitely chase if required.

I had a flat on Dundry hill many years ago   ,about 700 ft amsl ,great views for storms .think we need to wait till tomorrow for details  ,but some corkers very likely for many. I cant see any warnings out yet,  but expecting some later today ,cheers all   .

Latest UKV has shunted things further West.

Based on current guidance..

Storms initiating across South-West England giving torrential rain, thunder, lightning etc but as the storms move north they're likely to become increasingly elevated, moderate shear with the theta-ew plume destabalising further the highest risk of severe storms/MCS/possible tornadic activity looks to be across N Wales, NW Eng and up into E Scotland later in the night. 

Green area covers for likely eastwards expansion of the storms, less likely to have severe characteristics but torrential rain, gusty winds and semi-frequent lightning still a possibility.

If this was next week I'd be in the red area : P

The absolute dream forecast for me there - the High MCS storms/possible tornado writing is right above my house. ?

Thats a few forecasts now mentioning quite an event for us up here in the early hours - if this comes off it will be up there with my all time great! (May 2006)

Based on past experiences, if there’s any shift, it’s always an eastward one. Better to keep on having westward corrections, then at least you still have a much better chance to be in the game! As if anything, you are importing better ingredients, and more buoyant air from the S/SE. 2014 17th July had a 200 mile shift east as the situation unfolded. Many storms that night happened in areas that weren’t forecasted to have any at all. 

Earlier on this year, there was supposed to be storms from the IOW to Lincs, but ended up being only a Kent clipper.

I can't see there being an eastwards shift this time...I mean I'd love one but it's shifting west with every run. The Midlands look close to being out of the game.

I'm not too fussed with the westwards corrections here. I'd happily have a decent view of a nighttime thunderstorm the other side of the Pennines if I can go and get to a nice viewpoint looking west.

If we cop a storm here, all the better ?

UKV, strangely, shows it all dying out as it leaves the Midlands. I expect it'll all go up through the Irish sea and give @Convective a good seeing to.

Looks like we’re still on for something good around these parts. Keeping a close eye on the charts but certainly promising at this range.

Anything could happen. Don’t discount an eastward or southward shift.

Or a Kent clipper ? jks lol

I will be very angry if Scotland gets all the storms yet again, as I haven't seen a storm in 3 years and counting. They seem to have had loads already reading around the convective threads in the last few months.

It’s the exciting build up, thrill of the chase then the big bust when we all get thundery showers and watch on the radar as the storms then move out to sea and explode. ?

I'm surprised there's no MO weather warning for tomorrow night, the past few thunderstorm events they've had warnings in place some 3/4 days before the event but here we are, a day before some potentially severe storms and they've not mentioned them..
