@Paul Sherman 

You saw this coming for tonight didn't you. And there was me with no faith at all!

Yep

Your area looked primed, the subtle shortwave tracked up towards the South Wales Coast earlier in the evening and kicked off the brecon storm, a line of Accas with 20-22c Theta-W almost instantly started to spread north in the Welsh Marches and bingo outflow from the big storm initiated the Northward moving line. Textbook trigger mechanism

More of the same for the same areas tomorrow again its just where the plume destabilises which gives the lucky ones the show. I reckon your well placed again for tomorrow

Oo she's a beauty 

A beautiful altocumulus castellanus sunrise this morning. 

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

Must admit that is one train journey I would love to do. 

Perhaps not tonight though. 

I've been on it twice. Fabulous journey.

I dunno, sitting in the bar car with a scotch travelling through the storms sounds alright to me!

Twice in a row the West Midlands have 'stole' our fun. Humid and muggy as anything but dry as a bone here in the East Midlands. How's our luck looking for the next few days?

Not joking, I can make out a few big flashes from that stuff to the West from the best part of 90-100 miles away!! 

Seriously keep an eye out for Sprites you are in perfect range and conditions are ideal with clear skies leading all the way into the storm and clear cloud tops lighting up - Now that would be an incredible shot to get

The RAF crew in Ascot 467 should be getting a cracking view on the way home to Brize Norton

Hey summer sun, I know were not forecasted anything but is the cell in the channel worth watching? Its weakened then strengthened again 🙂

Finally we have brighter lightning & able to hear the thunder in Derbyshire! 

Same now in Nottingham, but according to the radar we should be getting just very light rain

40 years of learning lol 

Nah to be honest these set ups are a lot closer this year to what I chase in the US so do this on a daily basis over there for 90 days a year when Covids not ruining things. Its the smaller risks in the Uk I just cant get excited about, Dan Holleys always saying to me dont chase unless there is 1000jkg of Cape on the board and he is probably right. But its nice to see us milling around on the 1000-2000 Cape levels and getting those storm tops to between 30-40,000ft makes all the difference

Hope it edges closer so we can hear some elevated thunder 

Just heard one, and saw an actual ‘line of lightning and not just surrounding flash... wow so technical! Lol

I’ve got my eye out! That would be madness. How rare would that be for the U.K.!

I agree also Crewe that Arome was superb in its handling of todays risk from the piddly showers in the SE to the pokier ones that collapsed on themselves around the London area to the big kick off around the West Midlands.

If you look at tomorrow it is showing Armageddon Round 3 for you guys again

As much as I would love to much out here and watch for longer the mini me is getting tired and wants home. Hope it rolls in closer and brings enough noise to keep me awake to watch!
