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!

Hope something comes from Somerset because at the mo my chances are looking thin 

MetO app shows new cells forming to the east of the Gloucester storm and moving east / south east towards S Wales then eventually to the east of Swansea area before moving offshore around 9-10pm.  It's not been very accurate today but it has consistently shown something similar.

I get both points. It's fair to have a moan, but at the same time it's difficult to catch up with all the meaningful interesting posts at a busy time. There is a no storm club post afterall. 

Whos to say we are in that club hmmm? Freedom to post anything storm related here silly goose

Temps are slowly going down, Dewpoint is slowly rising at the same rate. Exactly what happened at the exact same time yesterday *rubs hands together in gleeful anticipation*  Can also see a blob forming between Stone and Uttoxeter.  Hopefully some orthographic lift from the southern tip of the Pennines foothill's will push it in the 'right' direction 😛

What if (and this is a massive what if) all the storms in Wales combine with the front of storms coming from London and combined with each other. It just kind of looks like this is beginning to happen on radar 

Sort of looks like that atm if they keep going, Don't know why we have an Amber warning in Lancashire as we just seem a little too North for the main event. One to watch though

One of the models, can’t remember which, did model a massive MCS over Wales, so could happen.

I have been checking sat24 radar, and seeing cloud developing to the South of the main development, this is now evident to be producing more torrential Downpours much further South that secondly thought.

Watching this one bubble out of nowhere - this is from hedge end looking north east ish. Currently we have a slight breeze and still 30.8c - I’m interested in the rain from France, really desperate for rain here and want a night off of watering the garden!

Happy with my call earlier, even though it’s massively annoying for myself personally. Not a satisfying told you so at all. 
 

30-50 miles south of Birmingham, Gloucester/Worcester. The exact areas getting slammed.

It'll be interesting to see whether this thundery mess coming into the channel will break apart as per models; the likely outcome, or defy the odds and make it over. Obviously I'm rooting for the latter! There's so much energy available that it'd be disappointing to see it not feed from it.

Very pleasant 23c here after the storm passed through....a drop of 11c for which I was grateful having to teach right then. Still very dark to my West. Incredible to think nothing was on a few hours ago 🙂
