A beautiful altocumulus castellanus sunrise this morning. 

Oo she's a beauty 

My first attempt at storm shots 🤷‍♂️ (Please don't judge 🤣) The cells are impressive tonight!

This thing deserved a flash amber warning. And to think just a few hours ago they said isolated storms dying out

At least a Yellow Lightning warning would have been better.

Jeez never seen an amber thunderstorm risk

Honestly this storm is genuinely bonkers. Be genuinely interested to know how many cg and cc strikes there have been in the last 2 hours as must be in the hundreds

It's actually shocking how Stratford (and areas S/SW of here) has not actually encountered a single thunderstorm when areas only slightly further north such as Warwick have had major storms both yesterday and today. It seems that they form over this area and move northwards, whilst areas to the south are not producing any convective activity. Very disappointing, but then again tomorrow seems much more likely to deliver.

That's the way it goes,sadly. Saw the most spectacular development in front of my eyes tonight ('TheOxfordCell), but reaped zilch tho it exploded 8 miles north.😪😪😪🤤

I am just East of the amber warning area but lightning has been frequent though not quite overhead here. Thunder not particularly loud for some reason perhaps because lightning quite high in the clouds? Haven't seen any cg strikes here but many reports not far away in Edinburgh, Fife and Perthshire. Don't know why they are not all showing up on the radar.

edit Just had a cg strike very close. Under a second from strike to thunder and this one was loud.

Not seen as much constant lightning for years. Silent and distant but at least i could sit in the garden and just fully enjoy it, whilst watching for the meteor shower at the same time!

 

Brilliant:)

Looks great from Gresford, it's over to the east, no real thunder though.

I’m in Rhosddu. Could hear big booms of distant thunder but the lightning is incredible. Just constant.

After being lively over Coventry, the storm approaching Nottinghamshire has weakened significantly. Going to have to look toward Stoke for any action!

I can see flashes here im in South Wales. Clear skies but i see constant flickering here in swansea. Is this even possible!?

Yup, earlier on I could just about make out the flickering of the northern atmosphere from here in Devon! I measured it as about 120 miles as the crow flies.

A shower then passed overhead so I couldn't see it anymore, and produced a flash and rumble but it was a one flash wonder.

That really sucks, and we were supposed to be in the "high risk" areas. I guess you win some you lose some, and in the last few days we have been the losers. I am more hopeful that tomorrow or Thursday will deliver for us though, I mean surely we can't lose everytime!
