Recommended Posts

Happy as pig in mud, dark cloud rumbles hot and humid.

My favourite kind of weather, that storm is a beast.

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!

You could get something creeping up there, but I like your prediction based on radar and steering winds. As we are up stream of your prediction area, we could be set for another round, but its a case of how long the developing line goes into the night... few hours before anyone in the midlands can call bust yet though. 

Yes I would say Shrewsbury, that kind of region and more 50 miles south are in absolutely poll position today! Looks great for another round.

The weather forecasts keep putting taunton out of the equation. Apps like metoffice predict that the cells are going to die just before they hit us, and intensify just after they passed us. Kinda infuriating.

My street just been hit, powers gone. Next storm is even bigger, constant roar coming from the south. Really sounds like a USA storm

And LB poking out too right in the bloody middle of the storms. Although finally kicking off now.

That's assuming storms don't develop further north though

Of course. At the moment though, everyone needs to be looking due east or marginally south east for their storms. 
 

I haven’t seen one forecast, amateur, pro, modelled that suggests Lincolnshire and points due east are going to explode. In fact, I’m right on the cusp of the northern and eastern limits of the main area.

Hope to be wrong, but I feel like I’m too far north currently. So places 120 miles north of here, should be living in slight hope, but not expectation.

Lets see. I’d wager nobody in England north of Birmingham gets into the real stuff tonight. Especially as the emphasis seems to head west the longer the evening goes.

Happy to be wrong.

Watching the radar loop we MAY catch the back end of one of these cells as it traverses WNW. Back end Barry it shall be known

Looks like we can add another day onto the totals in the Cone of Silence and others taking us to 385 days now and edging ever closer to that magical 400 days 

I have the thunder force field on full effect

Wondering if that line of explosive storms could drop a nice outflow boundary and spawn something further east - did read somewhere (think it was @staplehurst forecast) that daughter cells are a distinct possibility today.

 

Probably end up with someone's great-aunt. In a bath chair.

Tend to agree with this! Best chance appears to be tomorrow for EA/Eastern England. It is by no means a given that these parts will see a storm at all during this hot phase, but we shall see. Good to see the other vids and pics though 🙂

Seems to be a given for most other places though!

I don't know if any of you have Snapchat but on there if you go to the stories section and on the map go to Richmond there is someone in a car getting hit from hail possibly 2cm or so.

The UKV modelling things fairly well currently, will be interesting to see how everything plays out later - the 12z has the storm starved Southeast in play in the early hours..

On another subject, for those who subscribe to Netweather Extra, if you'd like to try out the latest version of the V8 radar, which can be installed as an app on your device, please drop me a pm..

Looks like we are in the clear here today. Most of the action further S.

Yes a real shame and for those of us that almost impossibly got shafted every day this week in Staffordshire, today’s the last chance at the really wild storms.

Some nice lightning last night, but to miss out with only glancing blows is infuriating. Deeply disappointing week here.
