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

Incredible lightshow in BS34. Thunder is a constant dull roar but just constant lightning. Not much rain passing through but a highly electrical storm.

Reminds me of a video posted by American Storm chaser Pecos Hank where he had a constant lightning show on one storm.

First of two ‘arms’ went through. Peak rain rates over 100 mm/hr but only lasted about 5 mins - they’re scooting along as expected.

Lighting is more ‘veiled’ than during the top-tier 2014 events and thunder much quieter.

Some powerful wind gusts though!

 

In the end, five bouts of torrential rain, most intense one reaching nearly 150 mm/hr, with the final one being the most noisy thunder-wise due to a lower cloud base (it was a back-built one).

8/10 for me.

Quite a rare sight. Nearly all of Europe lightning free, except us.
