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!

Have to say the model output is very underwhelming once again for southern coasts. Looks like primary destabilisation will occur inland. I suspect the SoR and it’s counterparts will be fully charged this evening @Mapantz @Paul Sherman

Hard to put into words the supercells in Edinburgh / Fife last night , doubt I will ever see a storm like that again. Near constant lightning - thunder from 2130 to 0500. Still going in fife too as can still hear distant thunder. Some of the videos on twitter are crazy

Nothing really to suggest supercells, high lightning rates, hail and mega heavy rain aren’t indicators of supercelluar structure. Normal TS can produce amazing shows.

That storm that developed between Birmingham and Leicester this morning is moving northeast a lot quicker than any of the storms we've seen this week.

Could suggest a slight shift in who gets to see them today? Maybe a few can get into more eastern areas?

The tops of the Leicester storm moving away from me.

 

Dear Netweather, 

Today I would appreciate a storm all to myself. I have been a good boy and spent all week taking/posting pictures of everyone elses storms so it must be about my turn now.

Thankyou.

Parts near Edinburgh have had torrential rain and thunder and lightning for nearly 10hours straight! Now that is EXTREME.

Models do look more promising for central south today. *Awaits Dan's forecast*

the circle of life on this forum, be it summer or winter

Promising models or forecast > entertaining debate and discussion > endless disapointment

😀

So for days building up to this point, and our area is likely to get very little today or tomorrow, going by the latest BBC forecast.

Last night's Buzzard storm was so slow moving it died out before it got here.

My grass is not grass anymore! Desperate for rain!

Metoffice weather forecast for Southwest Today:
A few thunderstorms are possible during the morning, though conditions will be mostly hot and sunny once more. During the afternoon more widespread storms are likely to develop, especially towards Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. Maximum temperature 32 °C.

Tonight:
Thunderstorms rather widespread through the evening, then more focussed across north Devon into Somerset and Wiltshire overnight. Becoming drier with clear spells elsewhere, and turning mostly dry everywhere by dawn. Minimum temperature 18 °C.
