Rain has eased off here now. Still constant flashes off to my South West. Somewhere in Central to NW Fife is getting a battering.  
Have seen a few fake pics already on twitter. Why do they bother?

Won’t let me oh well but this is crazy I can guarantee these are supercells 

I posted video to my Facebook page then shared as it said my video was too big for here. Only way I could think to do it 🤔

Some nuts photos on Twitter. This is my favourite nuts one. Not sure who took the photo but it will be well used by the morning!

Edit! Photo by @KitCarruthers. I was too busy looking at what looked like Edinburgh under attack.

I have been trying to see what the roads are like around Edinburgh on Traffic Scotland. All the cameras from the East of the M8, the City Bypass and the Bridges are all in Operational Use. Never seen this before.

2.19am been going for hours really ramping up now and kids all awake just as they go back to  school after 145 days off 😂. Incredibly slow moving storm, I fear for my mother in law who is petrified by thunder as she is currently in a caravan in pitlochry.

I don't think it would be wrong to say I have seen more lightning tonight than the rest of my entire 45 years, the house constantly lighting up like a scene from a horror movie.

Wtf just about sums that up 😂 lightning flashes over head basically ever second or two with constant rumbling thunder but not very loud.It looks like the lightning isn't actually grounding anywhere.Definitely one of the strangest weather events i've ever seen...

Scotland has turned into spain for the evening, as much as I would have loved a storm overhead. Nice to see it from a distance sometimes, with a clear sky above. Glad a lot of us got storms and hopefully not too much damage in Edinburgh as those looked intense and the way it kept reloading at the south meant it lasted for so long.

It’s all kicked off again over Bathgate, not that it ever stopped as such tonight but I can’t believe the amount of rain that’s falling along with the constant lightning. Every time I close my eyes, there’s yet another flash.

Um, can someone turn it off now as I have to be up for work in two hours and don't think I've slept much so far. 

Never been in such a prolonged storm, even in SW France. 

Cat's awake, kids awake even Mr Snowidea is awake 🌩️🌧️🌩️🌧️

Knew I'd be busy tonight, out at 1am to pull cars out of the floods, Glenrothes pretty bad, kinglassie dual carriageway underwater, and looks like the car park at the Vic is flooded, cars floating around. Still flashing away at 4:30am. Looked evil with purple lightning and mossmorran flaring away. Not a night I'll forget any time soon. 17 degrees at 3am, fog, lightning, thunder, hail... Debris all over the roads, drain covers up...
