I got this about 15-20 minutes ago from the London cell. I'm very shocked I got this.

Timing is key for Thursday - we've mentioned before how both the phasing and shape/characteristics of the mid/upper level trough will ultimately determine how many thunderstorms (if any) develop. Mode

My sister got this great pic from leith hill tower

I have a giant cumulusnimbus forming in the distance,  it's very very tall peaking over the cloud tops of the thinner cloud 

Pics?

looks like cumulus congestus but one is growing really fast

 

Not a mature storm though sadly. Haven't seen any lightning mate.

they just vanished into thin air

i can strongly relate to the annoyance of thinking towers are going up before they decide "lol no" and dissipate, i always feel the need to timelapse anything looking like its starting to tower just incase i could get a cool timelapse, my neighbours must think I've lost the plot always looking out the windows.

I'm in Norwich and I love my new flat but I knew this would become an issue when storms were due.

My view to the west and south are somewhat restricted, plus I'm working from home and can't venture out ? at least not till after 4pm.

From what I can see though, it just looks like a hazy sky. But at least the sun is out ?

Sky out back. Radar shows some light rain.

There are no squall lines forming anywhere in the UK I am afraid. A squall line is a type of convective system whereby thunderstorms form along a narrow line and produce briefly very strong straight line winds, torrential rain and lightning (although lightning does not have to be present). A lot of the time people mistake a narrow band of rain on the radar as a squall line when it is actually just a narrow band of rain. Believe me, if a squall line went through you would know about it.

Do we declaretoday as a no show for thunderstorms? All development has seemed to just stop as the trough got closer , maybe the trough is cutting all the development off
