Not long ago in Basingstoke It was sunny without much of a hint of anything nearby. 15 minutes later they're about to get hammered

Another pic of the storm in London seen all the way from Sandbanks Dorset. Mad

It's probably the one's south of London that you can see (same as what I can from here). Still a decent distance away though.

Rumbles here in LB, hardly any rain yet. Looking towards Luton direction, only a matter of time

Is it that annoying piece of crud left over from that mcs that’s been lingering further SE of London preventing more convection from taking place??

Probably it certainly effected my heat build up.

Of course for the third day running a storm builds within 10 miles of Rugeley and decides to shoot west. We have to be one of the only places in a 50 mile squad radius to have every storm on our doorstep just end up glancing us. 
 

Pathetic.

Just watching the latest met office 10 day trend there could be a big event Sunday/Monday with another low pressure bringing “lively thunderstorms” from the south. Still time for french imports yet 👍

You must only be a rare visitor to this thread to ask that!

They are running jokes that are now becoming serious business. Basically areas that are now beyond storm-starved.

COS and TOD (Cone of Silence and Triangle of Doom) are SE Essex/Suffolk @Paul Sherman  - will be able to confirm exact areas involved.

SOR (Shield of Resistance) is a newer one and it's basically central south (Hants, Dorset, Sussex, south coast in general). I'm inside the SOR, hence I haven't seen a single proper thunderstorm all year!

There's also the NTOD (Norfolk Triangle of Doom) 🤨

Too near the east coast. Same problem for me. Clear blue sky and no clouds to be seen. Never good for storms in the east when the wind is from any easterly direction

The wind has been permanently in the E or NE this year, apart from a few days when it went completely mad and came from the N.
