Had a huge storm yesterday afternoon.

Satellite infra red imagery from the early hours of this morning showed quite a dark core for the low pressure system out in the bay of Biscay. I would take this to show that the low pressure system w

Some amazing clouds north of me looked like cumulus congestus and some cuminloninbus to me. 

 

Pics taken about 20 mins ago and they deffo were still growing before clouds blocked them.

Nothing here as usual. Perhaps in a couple of hours, but usually if it gets to the stage of pushing the risk forwards each hour it’s usually indicative for a bust for this area.

As I understand it there’s still some heavy rain to come - but I don’t think it will electrify in any organised fashion south of the M4.

Happy to be proved wrong but I’m done with getting excited about slights at the moment as the forecasts are too unpredictable.

OK was about to get a bit annoyed at the witney stormshield and call it a bust when suddenly thunder resumes in the distance and not long later a fairly loud few. 

 

Don't want to get my hopes up too much however.

Massive thunderous cell over London, with aircraft still flying through it. Literally.

Had it right overhead here in Surbiton, torrential downpours and thunder crackling through the sky every few minutes for about 10 minutes as the storm passed through. A rumble or two since then, with more as I type, but it's moved fairly rapidly to the east of us now. I felt sorry for those on the school run, really not good for them at all.

I'd almost say this storm appears to have some rotation but I'm not too sure and can't take a time-lapse 

Yes I saw a bit of rotation, I wonder if Reefseeker saw the same?

I wish! The clouds as they built this afternoon have been ominous but I've been limited in what I can see as I am in my little office with a view of next door's window! I can only confirm those incredible dark cloud pictures posted earlier in the thread from elsewhere. This is the best storm in this location, short-lived as it is, in many, many a month.

EDIT: just went for a look out all of our windows. There are some seriously threatening clouds all around us but I couldn't see any rotation, probably too late but I'll keep an eye out if another one comes through.

Ok well it’s pivot(ing) or (ed)?

Either way a look at sat 24 shows storm motion (or the translation of the convergence zone) in a SWly direction. Which is very promising ?

Now the question is if they can keep their energy, and the forecasts suggest they can, but it’s still all to play for
