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

    Hearing some lovely long rumbles passing to the South, the outflow cloud  and presumably invisible anvil has taken away the hot sunshine!

    Stair rod rain here at the moment.  Although there has been continuous thunder all afternoon, this is the first rain.

    Looks like a serious flooding concern for those in the dartmoor area and river torridge, anyone got any updates from there?

    Plenty of rumbles on South Dartmoor but no rain or lightning as yet.

    Think most of the action will be further south than us.

    Possibility things may evolve further north in the region overnight, although saying that, I'd put myself in Exeter rather than Bristol preferably.

    Loving the blob of rain heading our way, everything else is electrified,  other than the blob.

    Just a few drops here . 

     

    Really intense further east reading direction but I expect it won't keep that intensity when it arrives here in the west .

    We can hear distant thunder from what must be the cell to the NE. Only expecting rain here though.

    More "thundery showers" out there now rather than thunderstorms.  Humidity much more bearable today compared to yesterday, a lot of cloud and muck around here too throughout the day.

    The ignition line as been roughly M3 and A303 throughout the day and remains so now.  

    Can't see much happening for areas north of this line, just feels very different to yesterday.

    Nothing shining here lol. Heard a few rumbles to the E/SE now it’s died to what will be the 3rd ‘decent for the garden’ shower of the day. Very humid.

    Can’t see much happening south of the line either unless it comes back to life as forecast later on.

    Still quite muggy here in Dorset should anything spring up.
