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!

    A few beefy looking cells firing up round London. Got my eye on these as they track N. A classic convective day in the making

    Some lovely loud and 'deep' rolling rumbles from that Swindon cell that's recently appeared from nowhere on the radar. Lovely way to start the morning. Gimme more! 😄

    I can see the robust N London convection but sadly too far to hear the thunder. Looks like I’m in the cruddy zone AGAIN where convection is firing about 5-10 miles to the north 😡

    And realistically we aren’t getting a 2nd round. The air is probably spent

    With the talk a page back on CG+ strikes, the most memorable CG+ strike I experienced was back in the 1970s in Durham. We'd had a day of thunderstorms and as 8pm came around everything had passed and settled to steady rain.

    I decided to take a bath. And mid-bath I noticed everything had gone weirdly silent and the rain increased. The most intense single blue-white flash shone through the bathroom window, causing the lights to brown-out. After 3-4 seconds followed the loudest crash of thunder I've ever heard - and I've had strikes land 100 feet from me.

    This thunder shook the bath water and I honestly thought the ceiling would come down. It was that intense.  Everything was vibrating and shaking.

    The single strike landed about a mile away in some houses, and the fire station staff on seeing it dispatched a couple of fire engines and were able to put out a roof fire. Fortunately no casualties apart from a lad lightly shocked from wearing headphones for his music.

    Newspaper next day sported the headline "Thunderbolt rocks Framwellgate Moor".   I only wish I had been able to witness the flash directly. it must have been one hell of a CG+!

    Yep it's what happened here in 2014 a huge flash, and about four seconds later, it was like a bomb exploded, lights went out and there was more than one fire. It hit some railway related, and there was a fire in five different places along the route, plus the channel tunnel was effected.

    convective downpour in Andover. No thunder or lightning observed though. Feels very much an April-showers type day.

    Fairly intense shower there with one clap of thunder.  Suprisingly lacking in lightning activity in comparison to the other two cells over London despite the whites and purples on the radar.
