I'm currently in Lancaster and saw one flash but the lightning activity has significantly reduced around here and these storms are reluctantly heading westwards. 

Hopefully there's not a classic storm shield. They seem to be around us atm

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

Quite surprised how big these storms are. Wasn't expecting it to be this big

What are you seeing at the moment? Apart from a bit of light rain and oneflash, nothing to report here, dark clouds around but nothing to remarkable? I suspect North of Carnforth could get hit quite hard though.

Those big beasts in the North certainly look like they hold a punch or too...without doubt there is hail in these (and perhaps severe wind gusts or tornadoes?). 

Wouldn't be surprised at all if there are reports of funnels or weak tornadoes later, maybe even the odd 'moderate' tornado, seems like favourable conditions.

If anyone has any reports or pictures from those Northern most storms it would be interesting to see them! I've got some hefty showers today near Cambridge - they don't look much on radar but they certainly pack a punch!

Not that much thunder and lightning out of that storm... But it was a fair ole power shower! 

Anyway... I certainly ain’t complaining. :oldsmile:

So here is the latest on where the storms are at the moment... For me it looks like everything is rattling up the other side of the Clwydian Range.

The day is still young on this one me thinks. :oldrolleyes:

I think there could be ? incredible storm off the Cumbrian coast, darker cloud to the NE but can't see any lightning from that, rain got slightly heavier but apart from that, a bit of a feeble attempt and how quickly the electrical side of the storm just died is incredible.

Wouldn't be surprised to see it intensify again as it moves out over Morecambe Bay.  Theres a few cells N/NW of Barrow at the moment.  Nothing here other than light rain a few rumbles. The storm to my East just died and pretty quickly too.

Can we all just admire the radar image...?

I think the radar images and the cloud images look stunning and show the circulation of the low really well. Just ashame locally as of yet there is no reward from this.

Well i got in at 2:15pm and strait to the camera and started recording but could only capture flashes of lightning but nothing visible,the front of the storm was nice though.

Wondered at first what this was trying to form as I just looked outside ?  Massive rain but no thunder this time!

It depends where you are on a storm. It's rare you'll get tornadoes on the leading edge of a gust front but if this was the back end of the storm and it looked right on radar, I'd be very interested in that lowering on the right hand side.
