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!

We’re baking alive in London and for what you northerners to steal it all 😡😡😡

Behave yourself, I'm a northerner now and up here we haven't had a sniff and are not likely to either according to modelling

Classic southern whining 😝

We're baking here too and with no proper thunderstorm!

We have had the most intense insane thunderstorm in Stoke I have ever seen tonight. Started at 10 half past and only past 20 mins gone quiet. Shook my whole house, thought I'd comment as I'm always watching the lightening map. I honestly thought the world was going to end 😂 sleep time now.

This has been one of the scariest, craziest nights of my entire life, I cant even begin to describe what I've seen and driven through, and it's still going! I am actually humbled

You need to get out chasing more storms 😅

The storm last year in Birdlip - now THAT was scary

Been out and about enjoying an evening of storms, and wow some of them were beasts. Started off around Stoke then chased up to Holmes Chapel, Congleton and now in Buxton.

Lots and lots of frequent lightning with some good powerful CG's in there and very loud thunder. The rain near to Leek was so heavy I could not see the road. Just the occasional flash and IC crawler now to the North and East of Buxton. Although the lightning detector picking up more lightning around Nantwich and just seen a flash to my south again

Managed to see some very distant, faint, infrequent flashes around 10 minutes ago to my north. Looks like it has died down now.

Oh my we've already had multiple rounds here mate, it'll more like Round 4, can hear thunder again even though I'm crashing on the floor tonight on the cool tiles as I'm way too hot in bed 🤣

I think that last blob that just went over us may have tried to put a weak funnel down???? Was lamppost watching the biblical rain and for almost the entire thing the wind was blowing the rain NW-wards up the road, then less than a min before the rain stopped it instantly shifted 180 so it was blowing down the street before completely stopping about 30 secs later.  Wasn't a strong gusty wind though and it stayed the same intensity.  So if it was trying something I doubt that it was close by.

 

Also I'm beginning to see an uptick in flashes and rumbles to my North again 😛 It had calmed down for about 10 mins 😛

Yeah I'm hearing those in Stoke again, although more distant sounding and less rattle

I got a whole load of the house shaking bomb explosions ones that were going off on Cam, hopefully the sound will come through on the vids 😄

 

EDIT, Yup, got the weird explosion sounding thunder 😄

Yeah I noticed that simililarly with the rain doing a direction shift just before it calmed down. I also have a flooded drive right by the backdoor that I have to do a wide step over!

That huge CG I heard that vibrated the windows was apparently a house being struck I've since heard. No idea of exactly where abouts in the town yet though.
