This was the late evening storm as it passed over Filey. It was nice enough as it come up from Bridlington, but as it approached the coast, a real nice feeder band developed into it and it really ramp

My view of the Bude cell   Edit:excuse the washing

Very impressive lightning display here in Scotland in the early hours. I am just a amateur photographer but I am pleased with what I managed to capture. Here is a selection of all the best ones I got.

Sat just east of Winchester. Starting to give up hope. Few flashes coming from the SE but it feels like a wasted drive. Guess I'll give it a while to see if the cells behind the rainy mess do anything

we should see something start building near southampton

 

blandford cell has exploded

Was worth coming down for all those forks earlier in the evening and the massive gust of wind from the downdraft. Not sure it's worth staying any longer though? Edge of the rain band is here and the developing cells ahead of the rainband that just got swallowed up by it. Disappointed to be fair..

July 23rd last year was memorable. I made the one hour trip down from work to the New Forest and watched the storm from a car park in the heathland, somewhere near Lyndhurst or Brockenhurst, I forget. The lighting was phenomenal, all directions, every second. It was breath-taking.

Anyway, I haven't posted on here in about a year, hope everyone is keeping well, what with the current crisis and the idiots at the beach! Moved from south Bucks to near Petersfield start of the year, so the coast is even closer! Not sure whether East Hants does better than the Chilterns for summer storms, but it can't do much worse! Fingers crossed for tonight. 

Mostly rubbish this way! Although your East of us - Storms like to split and and East/West of IOW at times so your on the right side of East I guess

Just got home, looking at the radar I'm going to be seriously annoyed if stuff develops just inland and moves away from me...….Looks like a nice little cell popped about tens miles north of Poole, plenty more towards Devon....Very disappointed given was under a moderate.

Not sure it'll mean anything but this has just appeared from nowhere behind the mass near Cherbourg

Might need to head off for some shut eye. Will set a 03:00 and 05:00 alarm. We’ll probably get one storm at 04:00 which won’t wake me ? nighty night all, good luck!!!

Agreed however similar it likely to happen, they'll mature and then spread and fade....

I wasn't in Southbourne I was at Barton on Sea but not I'm at home at the moment. Unlikely I'll be able to get back to the clifftop now but I'll be Watching from home if anything interesting happens

It’s still 23°C and it feels absolutely brilliant out there, so hot and humid, a perfect summers night. Just had  fireworks and a lovely celebration. I seem to be the only Lfc fan on here though so won’t start that. Hoping for some metaphorical fireworks tomorrow morning.

probably going to sit in the garden all night because it’s so amazing and wait for something in a few hours.

Can everyone just chill. It’s not even midnight. Watching from the hills near Portsmouth and when is does flash that stuff in the channel is lighting up a huge sheet of rain headed this way.

There also a band of showers now developing across Dorset and Somerset, headed NE. There will be embedded storms in this and it will most likely become very active as the night/morning progresses.

Stormchasing is a waiting game. Watching, waiting, wondering and taking in the majesty of it all...

Stop calling a bust so early!

Don't worry mate you aren't the only Liverpool fan on here YNWA ?  Fingers crossed I usually go to bed at 4am so I'll be on the look out for some fireworks too ? 

Although I'm more interested in tomorrow afternoon personally though maybe if we are lucky something will fire up overnight.
