    Evening.  I'm 16 and a bit miles north of you, skies gone really dark to my south and south east, radar now looking very interesting indeed.

    It's all turning to drizzle here 😭  But looks like you lot up there may be in for some 'fun' 😛

    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

    Didn’t know we was expecting an avalanche today 🤔

    Am enjoying a weekend away 60 miles S of Prague in the pretty town of Písek, the storm front that came in this evening was dramatic!

    Can actually see the CB continuing to grow as I watch it. Rapid development

    What started as cc this afternoon is now intensifying cg. It does look like with the amount of strikes in the last half hour that things are deteriorating into quite a volatile period.

    Yep, something’s definitely brewing over London (zoomed in a bit so you can see it more clearly)

    My view of the cell - not getting huge height but it’s full some!

    Saw these clouds to the north from here a couple of hours ago but never saw anything on the radar in that direction unless it was what’s currently between Oxford and Gloucester.

    Steady rainfall at the moment, just watching a really dark cell north of Macclesfield, seemed like it was going to produce something.  Rain just easing off.

    Torrential rain here for about 30 mins courtesy of our Dutch friends, very little electrical activity though.

    30mm rain, everything overflowing including the shower tray. Nice.
