Keep us updated. I don’t mind feeling jealous 😂

Hehe well we had some biblical rain and constant thunder for about an hour, Didn't see any lightning other then the sky flashing. The power went out for a few minutes also. Was good fun, cant wait for next years storm 😂

Stonking day for storms. Had two cells with continuous thunder [but mostly no visible lightning again]. Here's some pictures of one storm that I tracked as it progressed up the M11 which produced some

Got some cool pictures of the London development on my evening walk. Stood and watched it grow for a while. Considering not much has come this way, it was great to watch, even if from afar! 

Didn’t know we was expecting an avalanche today 🤔

I had given up on anything in Wales.. went to have a bath ... came back... now there's huge towering clouds, a few sferics on the radar... suns trying to come out,, the humidity has shot up... 
It's only a few miles away, so  things can die.. at least I don't have to wait long for disappointment or firework celebration 🙂

That was a biblical storm over Rushden, Northant's. Most of the lightning was high up CC and I would say a shame but I won't! Th thunder may as well of been one continuous rumble, was amazing!

Heard a few rumbles from very dark sky to the northwest of here, over the Severn Estuary. Dark clouds seemed to build over head, move northwestwards and developed into intense thunderstorms.

Grey skies and showers here, with the South Midlands clearly missing out once again with storms favouring areas to the North, West, and East.

Ah well, not too bad all in all. We had our daily dose of steady, heavy rainfall. Thrilling 😉

Haha. Yes we deserve to sneak in here in LB. We are in the Lee of the Chilterns, so from the SE and Dunstable Downs there is a near 150m drop. Cleverer people than me might know if that is anything to do with it!

Really dark to my north, where there are no storms, but brighter to my south...where the storms are.

This gloom is very deceptive today!

Still waiting...I'm sure they'll get here eventually!

Time to watch these lot die off in the channel despite it being pretty much the warmest it gets annually. 🙄
