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!

Definitely dying a death over the West Mids now, plus i think this heatwave is over now, dropped from 32C yesterday down to 21C today, currently 19.5C, storms probably out of the question here for a while now - not that we haven't had enough of them.

Storms firing on the Surrey Hills! How could I have guessed...... 

So there's been a lot of talk about storms forming on the M4 corridor and further south in Hants, Dorset and further westwards.....

Anyone got any idea if south Bucks (just W of Gerrards Cross) is a good position?! 

I've seen a lot of different opinions/forecast predictions with some focusing further south and others focusing more towards Oxford and westwards.

I believe that the feature developing over Calais now is what AROME was predicting could result in much more widespread storms later this afternoon and evening. That’s where I’d be looking and hoping that storms fire as it moves nearer the Uk.

what cell?- cant see any big ones in france

Watching that system currently NE of Guernsey.

 

I'm planted firmly in "No Storms Club" at the moment, down here in Torquay. Had some rain overnight but nothing else of interest happening down here at all this week (actually, all year!). Been fun seeing things absolutely go off in the rest of the country though. Some of you have had some corkers. Fingers crossed we get something...

Thunder annoyingly died out and just heavy rain now. 

Hopefully we'll get a couple more storms today.

I didn’t say cell, but rather the feature. There’s a line of heavy precipitation that developed rapidly over the past 20 mins or so. The broader feature however is anticipated on the AROME model at least to help generate storms across the SE before moving W and growing upscale (around 17:00 onwards)

Not sure about the lightning yet but if you ever needed a visual cue as to what PWAT is, I think I just drove through it

PWAT?  Visible? Oh wait...got it!

I 'think' we've had our fun now. Anything that comes our way today looks like it'll weaken. But you never know. Something may keep going, or even reignite. And any messy wet lumps that do come our way may have the odd embedded rumble.

But I don't think we'll get anything as near as spectacular as we had the last few days.

Love that clip of Redhill, thank you!  Literally a mile away in Reigate and it is cloudy, hot and dry with rumbles of thunder everywhere.

Looks like your local high pressure is holding out

Still cloudy and chilly in the South Midlands, temperatures around 19C!

I would rather have the 25C with sunshine and no storms than this rubbish.
