Some more pics from this morning in the Lomond Hills. Just the most sublime colours at sunrise. We had 12cm this morning, sunny all day except for a slight freshening up in the afternoon, now -0.7C an

The snow still hasn't come to anything beyond a slushy mess at the house so we went to the snow. At the small car park at the top of Glen Ogle it was proper snow with a few inches on the ground. By th

Evening all, a busy thread this evening, it seems we enjoy thunderstorms? 😉

Not too much to report here in the East Neuk, a few flashes and rumbles and some light rain but nothing compared to the likes of what @Kirkcaldy Weather is reporting.

Just been out the back in the dark and @Kirkcaldy Weather was right enough, constant flickering and flashing, brightest coming from kennoway direction, but very little thunder. Reminds me of hot evenings in Germany.

Some lightning been quite close to here. All cloud to cloud sheet lightning that I have seen. Despite appearing to being close thunder not too loud. Not shown up on the weather lightning radar yet either. Radar looks as if there is activity near Perth now.

Looking pretty lively for those through in the east! Nothing to report here in Ayrshire apart from it being very warm and humid.

Finally some action...beautiful light show in the clouds no visible lightning yet it seems to be all around though.

I've never seen so much flashes.

Haven't seen a light show like this in years. North, South, East and West. Constant lightning. Not much thunder though! Rumbling away in the distance.

I've chased this storm over Fife in the last few hours and it is nothing short of brilliant! Sweet spot is straight through the centre of Fife from the forth. A flash a second been happening for the last hour now, absoloute quality 😁

Woah, looked outside since you lot were posting about it and there's lightning flickering away to the east. I think it's the top of the storm at Biggar as I can see the cloud tops lighting up (I actually thought it may have been a supercell for a few radar frames but probs not)

 

Edit: multiple directions so may be Edinburgh storm too, crazy to see it from this far away! 

I can see flickers from here but it's unclear what or where or why.

Edit: it was clearer from the back bedroom, up Edinburgh way. Almost continuous flickers.

In all my 51 years I have Never seen a storm like this. It’s been directly overhead for an hour now with no signs of stopping.

At my daughter’s, just outside Bathgate and loving watching the sky light up all around, east and west, heard a couple of rumbles but it’s mainly just the distant lightning. Never experienced so much electrical activity as I’m seeing tonight, daughter thinks I’m nuts. Managed to take some video on my phone but need to see what’s recorded before I share or not. Still really warm outside too, probably the warmest I’ve felt at this time of night so far this summer.

Seems to be lightning flashes to the east every few seconds. I can't tell there's cloud or haze overhead and whether that's reflecting the the Lightning from the storm over Edinburgh. Quite remarkable that the flashes can be seen from Ayr - it must be some storm over Edinburgh.
