This year has got some serious catching up to do to avoid being the worst year in my memory for thundery activity. People further north will laugh at that statement, but I'm not exaggerating in the slightest about just how poor it's been down here.

There's been two weak TS in the vicinity of here this year plus I watch some elevated storms die out about 30miles from the coast during the failed breakdown a couple of weeks again. Its beer really poor again......

It's been very poor. I'd usually have a dozen storms by now but there's been barely anything. 2 storms, one a thundery shower (lasting longer than 10 minutes), the other an actual storm. Other bits have just been a flash or a rumble.

Nothing at all here yet apart from a distant rumble and the storm in the channel that never made it as @Alderc mentioned above.

100% - I had 2 days in a row of hearing thunder back in June and had the closest strike I think I've ever had but didn't actually see a single bolt of lightning and the storms were over in a flash (sorry!)... another dire year so far, so boring.  The general decline of storms the last 10 years or so is continuing, imby's at least.

Bit quiet in here. :lazy:

So the models showing potential for the annual late July heat. Next chance for some decent storms?

3 days and a thunderstorm. July 16th heat spell seems to happen 80% of the time apparently.

These are the dates I've had storms in July in the 3 years I've lived here before this year.

2017: 18th, 19th, 29th

2018: 26th, 27th

2019: 23rd, 24th (I think it was just one storm but it was near midnight and went on a while so I counted it as 2 days)

Might be some storms today. Nothing like a plume though.
