Why are they all dying instead of lasting hours like the Welsh ones? Wales is the place to be!

Looks like some fairly extensive cold pools have developed - there's not a great deal of shear today, so these are pulse-type storms that collapse fairly quickly, gusting out and while that can develop daughter cells nearby (as we saw multiple times yesterday) there's a lot of rain-cooled air now over southern England (the outflow also disrupting and distorting the shape of the nice convergence zone that was in place earlier)

Sounds game over!

What looked like a serious breach of the SOR, turned in to false positive. It's now stronger than ever. Disappointing, but worse things happen at sea.

Well today was good enough for me. No direct storms but had a few pass by that gave us a good deal of rain so I'm more than happy. Some nice deep rumbles of thunder too.

I'm just happy that the heat has come down and I can stop sweating lol 

Temperature 20c and dew point 18c, humidity has come done to 87%.

One of the worst areas for storms this, only storms that happen(if they do) are in the middle of the night, I will never ever be fooled again at thunderstorm warnings!! I’ll believe them when I see it in person😁

Looks like this London storm is going to miss me here in the East.  Frustrating to have now had storms North, South and West of me in the last couple of days but nothing over us.  We've had about 30 seconds of rain.

Completing the set of compass points, now have had a storm to the East which is dying before it gets here. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Doesn't look good for the rest of tonight.

Well I think the POS has been well and truly broken today but this part of it hasn’t. Maybe I’m under the SOR instead and that’s why I’ve had nothing here.

Wow, lots of people giving up already

One thing is for sure, it's still very muggy out there, and I'm right on the coast, still many hours to go yet

 

Keep the faith
