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!

Looks like a degree of backbuilding on the radar so probably more to come - though the sky is just a grey mess now so won’t be able to make out any structure.

Will not be complaining though! Probably the rumbliest storm I’ve heard in a decade.

Still waiting to hear the thunder here. Today seems like it's got the potential for Somerset.

Is that game over!! Or are others on the way. Just rain here just stopped. Looks like something over Salisbury way but only on radar.

It took me by surprise by how quickly it formed. We had a small thunderstorm pass by around 2pm, then around 3.30pm heard what I thought was wagons being unloaded at the unit next door to where I worked. Popped out for a look and saw a lovely black wall of cloud to the east and south east booming away. Still going now, hoping for a more direct hit later on. 

I know, right? Mad how quick it crept up. I was above the storm just south of Alton which was dying off when I could hear a constant rumbling. Took a few minutes to realise it was just behind me and a different cell 😅

I think that storm south of Alton was the one I could hear rumbling away earlier on around 2pm. Pleasant surprise this afternoon to get all that constant rumbling, and a decent splash of rain too - even if the core of the cell was a little to the south.

12z AROME picks up the newly developed storms in Kent and swings them down into Sussex and south Hants between now and 10pm

Looking distinctly thundery to my south here on the south coast, but I can't see anything on radar

Should be interesting to see if anything appears just off the coast of Christchurch, Bournemouth in the next few minutes

Is the lightningmaps website not working? Just seems odd that every storm over Europe and the uk has stopped at the same time 🤔

Put 50p in the meter, and they will start back up😂

 

Nothing is free these days!

West Sussex. Sorry, should've been more specific! Looking at their current trajectory, I think they'll take a more northward path, but there are new developments on its southern flank.

Watch it all die off now I've said this!

Let's hope the forecast model is incorrect and the storms end up on the correct side of Hampshire.

That earlier Medway cell dying a death 😫 one behind looks more impressive but probably will suffer the same fate. One near Maidstone looks like it’s growing rapidly and could well outshine the northern two
