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!

Been going since 9 clock in Stoke still going strong now. 

I suppose that's relative. Still going with a flash and rumble every minute or 2, but not compared to earlier or especially last night!

possibly, my mate is anchored off porthcawl at the moment as he missed the tidal gate on his yacht due to the draught on her, so has to wait out all night so hopefully he will get photos

Flip the octopus pic so the head is on the left where the big blob is and it'd fit better 😛

 

Even better change it for a pic of Cthulhu 😄

Last night was the worst storm I have seen in all my life, scared me to death.

An OCS (Octopus Convective System) rather than an MCS🐙 The resemblance is uncanny. It's those arms you want to stay away from, judging by the activity in them.

Ahh, haven’t looked at anything like that since i hit the beach. Now home charging up and catching up. So what’s the heads up on this? Are we expecting it to channel hop?

I really really hope so! A very attractive system in terms of lightning frequency indeed. Just hope it doesn’t pull a classic MCS move of going against the steering flow, and then veering to the NE

Finally able to share this, here's the loud crack of thunder which I captured on video from Monday night at Lancashire. Will be able to share more videos soon hopefully

I’d actually prefer if that MCS buggers off now so we can be cloud free to start the day tomorrow, that’s if it doesn’t re-ignite inland

Worst, I hate them but to get over a  fear I have spent all week watching weather maps and tracking them. And I can honestly say they aint that bad, I survived last night and tonight so I'm doing well 😂

I'm going to be honest, but I am scared of them too. But having joined and watching everyone talking about them has made me feel better

I am phobic to loud noise; always have been. Which is why I watch storms so I know when the noise is going to happen. And I love the lightning show because of it! 

Same with fireworks.

Good on you! I used to be terrified of storms as well - I pretty much hid away from the best overnight storms the 90s had to offer. Over the years my fear/fascination ratio has tipped in the balance of fascination, to the point when I'm actively seeking them out. I hope it gradually does for you as well.

Will these inland storms die off soon? Mid level keeping them going? 

Certainly not showing signs of dieing yet. More like reinvigorating inland.

(Edit: Some back build of that beast/storm does seem evident on its Eastern flank on radar with new blobby bits that keep forming)
