Me too, lovely sound 

Yup, wonder how much longer the girls will last. Probably longer than my battery.

Seems to be losing intensity quite quickly now...but I thought that last night!

It's just harvesting energy for a big eastward tilt up to Sheffield 😜

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

Hoping this Summer has more surprises in store

Well I can officially say the heatwave has gone out with a bang now. Someone just set off a bunch of fireworks randomly which only lasted 10 seconds 😂😂

At 2.40 into video, you can see convection kick off that was to produce the storm cell near the Wigan area of Lancashire, at 1.45, a bank of  altocumulus castellanus really takes of as it moves away

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?

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.
