    The rainfall ahead of that squall (if that's what it'd be classed as) is heading more NE. If the squall follows that pattern then I could get an unexpected little thundery treat later

    Looks that way!

    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

    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! 

    Didn’t know we was expecting an avalanche today 🤔

    In all the years I have lived here, that was genuinely the heaviest rain I have ever seen. 411 mm/hr rain rate.

    Very surprised to see the amount of lightning activity on blitzortung - all heading east which is great but (typical for this year so far) will head to my south. Will look forward to looking out for it though

    @Paul Sherman might be in the game later,there's a thought😜

    steady rain here but to the north there are some heavy showers developing that might provide an sferic or two.

    Hearing the odd rumble from the west. Surprised I can’t here more actually considering it’s not that far away.

    Maybe the torrential rain is drowning the audible thunder out!

    That was weird, normal rain rates here, nothing stormy to speak of, and then suddenly a cloud-cloud lightning strike above my head!

     

    Wasn't expecting that, thought we were way too far north of the action.
