    Lightning activity waning on the storm over the channel, looks like it's had it.

    New developments around Kent could be interesting for those of you down there.

    Beats me how storms can't limp over the channel, but give them the N Sea and they go completely bonkers....

    Think they must be false, but there are an awful lot of random strikes showing at the moment

    Something of them probably as a result of anvil crawlers.

    There's an insane frequency of sheet lightning to my SSW/SW now, several flashes a second.  I can't work out whether it's just reflections in the cloud cover from the Wales stuff which is now 50+ miles to my NW (the wrong direction) or whether there's other stuff kicking off further south now.  Nothing on radar or lightning maps but it must be highly elevated.  Anyone further S/W who can confirm?

    Sitting in the garden now, constantly lit up with strobe lightning. It’s so humid it’s like sitting in a pressure cooker. Not a breath of wind nor a sound of thunder. Eerie.

    Activity heading our way from Kent.

    I think I'd rather be somewhere near Bala (preferably not in the caravan though!)

    The line of scratty precipitation stretching from Chester to Birmingham seems to be beefing itself up a bit *fingers, toes, arms and legs are all crossed 😛 )  Also beginning to get the odd pulse of a breeze through the blinds.

    Certainly is. My peaceful sitting in the garden was interrupted with a humongous flash of lightning and a massive rumble of thunder. New pants needed 😂😂😂
