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

This is why I refused to give up earlier, cells are developing exponentially.  Must be a convergence zone over Wiltshire as they've been developing in very similiar places all evening.

Interesting. I'm seeing frequent lightning to the S/East of Bristol and there's something picking up down near Taunton, also. New echoes appearing on the last radar frame around Warminster / Bradford on Avon etc.

I’m amazed we’re yet to see a steric from the new cell by Taunton judging by the rapid development from the radar!

Sky has cleared again here can see the stars again. Interupted by lightning which seems to be closer than 10 minutes ago. 

Wind is picking up as well now.

Oh I thought you were offering payment for the video... 😅

New annual max today, 33.5*C, just 0.1 shy of 10th Aug 2003 but 0.8 short of 3rd & 4th Aug 1990.

Still mid-20s now. Thin high outflow cloud overhead. Humid - RH in the 70s % having risen sharply after a surprisingly low dip this afternoon, into the 40s (felt amazing!).

MCS from France fizzling away from eastern end - standard behaviour. Might be yet another dry day this month - only seen 1.2 mm to date! Very parched out there with trees wilting and dropping some leaves.

Still developing around the Bath area.  Plenty of red radar returns.  Looks like the Bristol area might finally see some rainfall.

Not sure about electrical activity though, nothing much showing on the radar.

anything out the window mate? I think lightning activity will start to dwindle soon.

Noticed an uptick in temp predictions for tomorrow from ECM and GFS - now high 20s in a good few spots. Cloud amounts corrected downward based on today’s observations.

Was watching that MCS very closely this evening, however the energy continues to head towards Kent or stay over N France. Was looking into last year and didn't really find an answer as to why this keep occuring over the past few years. Looked at Azores high, sea surface temperatures, steering winds etc and couldn't come to an conclusion.

All this formed in little more than half an hour.

Impressive and a direct hit incoming.  Chippenham cell keeps expanding.

A little higher max than yesterday at 32.9 °C and very unpleasant! Any storms passed a fair way north of here and no lightning seen or thunder heard. Clear skies overhead currently.

Nowhere near as active this lot as the last lot but have seen a few flashes and had a few rumbles so far.

Not sure why strikes aren't returning on the radar?  

Roughly seeing 2/3 c/c strikes per minute here but nothing showing on radar?

Radar does show heavy rain over me but it's dry though.  😆😆
