    Beautiful storm structure across East London. Some mean thunder, plus a couple of missed strikes.

    This is probably just a weird skud but....

    2nd pic was taken about 2 mins after the first and it vanished into nothing about 30 seconds or so later.

    Also some nice looking lenticular'ish' clouds in the distance.

    Aaanddd it's liveeeee!!!!!

    Skip to 12:17 for the main action.

    Unfortunately the camera didn't pick up as much lightning as I thought it would.

     

    Thanks for uploading the vid. Glad you got some action, but I don’t think that was an intense thunderstorm, sorry ?

    Haha. The 'intense' part was meant mainly for the rain, not the lightning ?

    Another shower right now, this one from the NNE and not that heavy. I reckon we've had less than 5 mins sunshine all day and I was hoping that being near the low centre would be an advantage ?  Glad you guys down South did rather well from an unusual set-up in June but it has been interesting watching the wind direction change throughout the day so some compensation at least.

    Here's to looking forward to a thundery summer - not a bad start IMHO.

    Really clearing up here now, Bright sunshine and the sky looks full of weird almost teardrop/wavy shaped smooth looking lenticular'ish' clouds.  They are also very flat ?  Looks like the show's over for me for the time being ?

    Well I got treated to a spectacular distant light show in the North Sea yesterday night, could today perhaps deliver another day where I see more lightning? :oldlaugh:

    Yes. A LOT of lightning. ?

    Probably one of the last storms of the day up here, looking West towards Crewe/Nantwich direction.  Camera phone doesn't really pick it up but it has a nice orange internal looking glow in some patches, guessing there's some people over there seeing a nice Zero Order optics effect.

    And a beautiful cloud shadowed sunset to end it.

    Have to say, I thought today was a bit of a right-off for this location, caught just North of the squall line, copping persistent drizzle and zero lightning. But this evening it briefly went very dark, I looked out and saw low swirling scud coming over. As this cloud moved over it quickly formed into a rotating funnel - here's a pic as it moved away...

    And here's a couple of earlier pics of Mammatus on the back edge of the South Essex squall line:

    When you said 'this evening' did you mean around 40 minutes ago? Because I thought I saw a suspicious lowering in the distance to my SE!
