A beautiful altocumulus castellanus sunrise this morning.

My first attempt at storm shots 🤷‍♂️ (Please don't judge 🤣) The cells are impressive tonight!

    Where did this come from???51B93157-BD3E-4830-984D-CE20B6C534B2.thumb.jpeg.ade7f08be13ce9e6a592912f2e3c5c57.jpeg

    Appears to be inline with the CHF Storms 😛 so probably part of the same feature.

    Plonked myself on a hill near Guildford that overlooks London, can see the occasional flash off the mid-London line but not much electrical activity

    Parts of the M25 have apparently turned into a canal 😛 you may need to hire a barge/boat if it hasn't drained by now 😛

    lend you a rib ;)

    Looks like it’s skirting me to the North. Some pretty bright flashes and nice long rumbles though

    Nothing here along the road either...can you see all the elevated lightning? The bulk of it seems to be from the north, the cell heading towards Essex!

    Yep can see the Essex stuff, and occasionally something to my west, but can't work out what that is.

    Being away from looking at the radar in the last few hours, is nice to see that things have exploded more into life for some of you down South-East

    Oh I know where that is, I’ve been there, I meant I can’t see how it’s reaching the Essex storms approx 70 miles away?? I wondered which compass direction the camera was facing, incase something is out there not showing on the lightning maps.

    A pretty grim end to a heatwave for Norfolk and Suffolk, almost the only region in the UK which has seen zero activity. Today it was grey skies and temps 10 deg + below yesterday's thanks to a poxy N'ly dragging in low cloud. Friends of mine less than 5 miles away were basking in hot sunshine all day. 

    Roll on 2021, it can't be globally worse than 2020.

    Add Ashford to the list as well

    What can I say I must be a brilliant young & upcoming meteorologist ;)

    In all honesty, I meant "what do you reckon if I took a 3 and a half hour drive to Southend-on-Sea now"

    May have caused some slight confusion haha oops...

    its picking up elevated cloud lightning and the ground looks flat with light on horizon could it be picking up the essex storm in chanel?

    Everything forming to either my north or south! In bed now but I'd be up and out again for that elusive night time lightning shot! 

    Another go at this tomorrow night too it looks like.
