A quick recap of my day, without getting too waffly. It has been an absolute classic and my favourite/most successful chase so far. - started fairly benign as I failed to get a good handle on the

Finally seeing across Benelux what this ‘possible MCS’ is all about...been a steady flow of rain spreading into the Channel all day (but decaying thankfully) but now there’s some more active storms racing westwards

Spoke with Dan a little while ago, things have changed somewhat after todays events which is what is putting tonight and tomorrow off kilter. Am sure he will put up a forecast probably by 10-11pm as he has been chasing today around Suffolk and West Norfolk

Profiles are awful Harry - Totally Saturated at all levels, happy to be proved wrong but that nearly always promotes dynamic rainfall with one or 2 rumbles. There could be some developments ahead of the incoming system if winds are favourable and a line of convergence happens in the early hours but thats an outside bet

Agreed - to my mind it always looked an outside bet anyway as instability has always looked quite marginal. Only hope I took was from the convective looking outbreaks ahead or accompanying it but, given the local downpours to here are currently producing no lightning, optimism is low ? 

Edit - spoke too soon - strike appeared a very short distance from here under a very dark base - but I saw and heard nothing - noooooo!!!

Well that should be it for the night. So far this year plenty of thundery showers and one storm. Still kicks a lot of years into dust.

Just heard another one. Funny as soon as you said these cells were producing no lightning, a bunch of sferics appeared ??

3km into my 5km interval run, look at that beauty moving away into Buckinghamshire.

Handful of very localised but RAPIDLY developing deluges kicking off in my locale. No thunder sadly.

Yes - cells rapidly popping off and becoming electrical now. Cells back-building over that one over central London.   Watching from my Living room view.

Two of the closest strikes for a long time out of that one as it came overhead from Warminster. Less than 300m, one near Corsley and the other on the A36 at the top of Blackdog Hill. Both instant shotgun thunder. Two nights running now at about the same time.
