My first attempt at storm shots 🤷‍♂️ (Please don't judge 🤣) The cells are impressive tonight!

Yup, I'm just on the edge of the storm and there is fairly frequent thunder lightning, the wind is really strong too. No rain yet though.

i've just locked up downstairs opened the front door constant lightning with a small bit of thunder so watched it for a couple of seconds

So are we looking at a decent event in the SE from this you reckon?

It's pleasant enough viewing along the coast, though moving very slow and still a fair way off land. As others have said, it's expected to largely die away. 

Personally hoping eastern cells can maintain themselves, I'm easily entertained. Activity increasing. 👍

For me they seemed to be coming from a Westerly direction, what about you?

Oh I don’t know, wasn’t paying attention just heard them 😆 but I think possibly west too

Which area is most active? 

I saw the southern sky light up blue about 60 seconds ago 😊👍 first bit of action for me even if it is 50 odd miles away

Doesn't seem to be much lightning on the storm around Crewe unless there's more than the radar is showing 


Less than there was, but definitely more than on lightning maps. It's been really poor all year.
