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.

As i Said earlier the initiation zone where deeper convection is showing is in an arc from Cheshire through the Birmingham area to West Norfolk

About 30-60 minutes away from touching the paper

30C here too. Skies looking firm to my south but much more agitated to my north over Essex/London. In fact the tower in the foreground in my pic below looks as if it COULD go in the near future.

Edit - looks as if it might well be going. There was a momentary Pileus cap too. Second and third pics taken about a minute apart

Towers shooting up to the west of me moving north, unfortunately not much happening to the south.  This is in line with thoughts on here today, so looking good for Suffolk, Norfolk, Lincs etc.

Well something is holding my temps has actually gone down from a high of 23 I wish the humidity would disappear with it, as nothing looks like happening down here today. Hoping on elevated stuff later, which seems very unlikely now.

Will north east Wales get a taste of this action today too?

Fantastic lightning last night here in Swansea. Very random CC & CG strikes for a good hour and the lightning detectors just didn't pick up half of the strikes. Hardly any rain fell though, just a 5 minute downpour.

Its gunna be close Sarah, if you look on Sat24 and zoom into Uk and Ireland you are right on where the convection is developing and its gunna race away to the North and East. Hope something can fire further to your south and west

Some very beefy development firing up just North of Cambridge - towers really going up fast. Promising signs to say the least - won't be long before these get going I suspect

This visual satellite view shows 3 main areas of interest. The first is between the red lines which looks like a decaying frontal system that did produce for some but not for me

The second is the area to the west of the blue line. Is this the cold front someone mentioned earlier on that could either kill off storm chances or it could arrive in the right areas at the right time and create a big line of storms which could form a squall line too

The third area is the yellow circle where it looks like clouds are beginning to form. Perfect breeding location to send fully formed storms to my area of the country in N Lincs later on if all stays on track

Btw some were commenting on that spiral of storms off the South Coast last night near Brighton, smartie on Ukww has done a nice post on its formation noting it was an MCV (Mescoscale Convective Vortex) which initiated within the MCS that came out of France last night - Good reading 

Thanks for that. I was hoping someone more knowledgeable would be able to shed some light as to what it was by the time I woke up. I've never heard of an Mesoscale Convective Vortex before.
