You'll like this one.... Some kids were camping over in the Downton meadows last night. Packing up in the rain this morning, we watched them bag their rubbish up, then chuck it in the trees. I shouted

My poor attempt at taking photos of lightning with the phone! 

Just missed out in frome again , but took a short a short stroll  to a good vantage point and caught  funnel cloud

Northern France is exploding for the first time today. Interesting surface data from looking at the latest soundings over N France. I've got my eye on them.

As others have mentioned 'loaded gun' scenario over Southern England at the moment, but the cap remains.

Still hot. 30.1°C.

EDIT:-

Just complied my records locally of the top 5 temperatures and here they are:

34.4°C - 25 Jul 2019

34.1°C - 9 Aug 2020

33.9°C - 8 Aug 2020

33.3°C - 23 July 2019

33.3°C - 11 Aug 2020

These are now all within the past year. Pretty incredible.

Possibility of 32°C again tomorrow... 😵

That'd be insane! The OCD in me wouldn't say no, just for statistical purposes. 😏

Wait.... wut?

Hasn't been as hot as inland areas here but it's still 26.8°C now so it's still much warmer than this time yesterday.

Not sure if these mid level clouds will continue to develop but they have done so to this stage in the last half an hour. Currently placed to the E and NE plus getting to the N of Westbury. Am extending area of instability.

Beautiful evening here, plenty of altocumulus building steadily now from the south. Also have a good view of the storm in Northern France now towards the SE. Quite a size on satellite!

Currently 26.8°C.

This is the Oxford cell taken from Westbury. First image at 20.06, second at 20.20 . Visible explosion borne out by the radar.

Can confirm the pink circled shower is real...

Does the cap mean high pressure squeezing down the tops development ?

It works in the same way really! A cap is just a term used in weather to mean energy can only rise to a certain point, stopping any thunderstorm developments. They usually occur when the boundary layer (rising warm air) hits the colder inversion area (cap), basically preventing the energy from rising any further in the atmosphere. Todays cap has been sitting around 3-6,000ft across the south, thus not conductive for storm clouds which reach 30-40,000ft at times. 

But as seen across Wales and the Midlands, the cap can be broken if conditions allow.

Still 24.9°C a few minutes ago, according to the radar, it should be raining,  it isn't.

Max of 32.3°C here today - my hottest of the year, and very unpleasant working out in it all day. Very little cloud at all today which seemed to make a lot of difference. Looks to be similar temperatures tomorrow depending on how any storms go.
